CNN sunk to a new low with its latest “fact checking” fail

Published

on

CNN’s new boss supposedly wants the network to veer to the center.

But he’s got his work cut out.

And the network proved that when it dipped to a new low with its latest fact-checking fail.

New CNN Boss Chris Licht might want to “quickly eliminate” what’s not working at the failing network, but he has his work cut out to reprogram the leftist zombies working for him.

The network’s “fact checking” piece from Joe Biden’s recent State of the Union address illustrated that like nothing else could.

Instead of a hard-hitting journalistic piece, it read like a poorly written presser that could have been issued by Biden’s campaign team.

CNN’s so-called “Facts First” fact-checkers put out a piece highlighting 12 claims from Biden’s speech.

Miraculously, they only found one blatantly false claim.

The “true” claims they chose to dwell on read like talking points for a press conference including “record job growth” and Biden’s politically expedient declaration that we no longer need to wear the masks that weren’t doing any good in the first place.

They did make a weak effort to provide “context” to some of Biden’s predictably exaggerated claims and pointed out that Biden’s claim that gun manufacturers can’t be sued is blatantly false.

But that was all for show before the claws came out and they shredded the Republican response from Governor Kim Reynolds of Iowa.

“You know, it seems like everything is backwards. The Biden Administration requires vaccines for Americans who want to go to work or protect this country, but not for migrants who illegally crossed the border,” Reynolds said. “The Department of Justice treats parents like domestic terrorists, but looters and shoplifters roam free. The American people are left to feel like they’re the enemy. This is not the same country it was a year ago.”

CNN’s so-called “fact checkers” claimed her statement that parents were treated like “domestic terrorists” was patently false.

“The National School Boards Associations, in a September letter to the Justice Department asking it to ‘deal with’ the uptick in threats against education officials, equated that activity to ‘domestic terrorism,’” The “fact checkers” wrote. “In response, Attorney General Merrick Garland directed federal prosecutors to work with state and local authorities to combat the issue – but importantly, he never used or embraced the heated ‘domestic terrorism’ language.”

Nope.

He didn’t call them “domestic terrorists” he just treated them like terrorists.

Oh, wait.

That’s exactly what Reynolds said.

The CNN piece went on to justify the FBI’s creation of an internal threat tag to deal with “illegal threats against teachers and school board officials.”

They conveniently left out the context for the behavior of one parent who got worked up yelling at school board officials.

It wouldn’t help their case to point out that the angry father was confronting the Loudoun County school board after they allowed a “transgendered” boy to enter the girls’ bathroom where he sexually assaulted the man’s 15-year-old daughter.

The school district then transferred the offender to a second school where he did the same thing to a second 15-year-old girl.

If the outraged father hadn’t thrown a massive fit that garnered nationwide news coverage, it’s likely a sexual predator would still be lurking in the girls’ bathrooms in some Virginia high school.

Since everyone knows the senile President is already washed up, the leftists at CNN made the best possible case to help Democrats recover before the midterm elections.

Bipartisan anger about public school mismanagement and woke concepts like CRT and dropping math instruction so nobody feels left out because they can’t keep up is threatening to sweep Democrats out of office.

Even the dependably leftist Associated Press managed to call out Biden on a number of his absolutely false claims including the ever-so-important declaration “the pandemic is over” because they’ve figured out people are past done with the Democrats’ awful mismanagement of the entire mess.

The AP pointed out that while hospitalizations are down as Biden claimed, that’s because a bunch of people are dead with 1,985 deaths recorded the day before Biden’s address compared to 289 deaths on July 1, 2021.

The reality is, Americans are sick and tired of Democrats’ heavy-handed pandemic policies that are centered around controlling people, not helping them by allowing patients to pursue therapeutic treatments for the virus.

They also pointed out that Biden’s network of 500,000 electric vehicle charging stations by 2030 is just hot air (and rightfully so since private businesses can take care of anything they need on their own – Tesla already has).

The news service also called Biden out on inflating the number of jobs Intel is creating in Ohio drastically.

Ironically, the AP also tried to pop Biden’s balloon when it came to the one good idea that accidentally landed in Biden’s speech: the need to increase manufacturing – especially computer chip manufacturing – in the United States.

It certainly won’t make up for all Biden’s awful monetary policy driving inflation but building infrastructure to make computer chips in the United States as China bears down on Taiwan is an obviously essential move.

It seems when it comes to the “facts” corporate-controlled media always has an angle whether it’s working for the Democrats or propping up Xi Jinping.

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota just floated a ridiculous conspiracy theory after a Supreme Court decision

Published

CNN destroyed its credibility by peddling Fake News during Donald Trump’s Presidency.

But with Trump out of office, the network hasn’t changed their approach.

Now CNN’s Alisyn Camerota just floated a ridiculous conspiracy theory after a Supreme Court decision.

The Democrats remain in meltdown mode after the Supreme Court ruled to overturn Roe v. Wade, sending the abortion issue back to the individual states.

For nearly 50 years, Democrats have repeated the lie that a “constitutional right to abortion” existed.

The Left are coping with this reality by coming up with ways to circumvent the law in red states with restrictive abortion laws.

Out of ghoulish desperation, the Left have crafted a conspiracy theory that the government will use data from period tracking apps to determine if women are pregnant, and CNN is giving credence to this insane idea.

“My period tracking app tells me when I’m supposed to be getting my period and when I’m not, and so you can use that data to see when I am supposed to be pregnant, but aren’t and a state attorney general, local law enforcement could use that against me…” Congresswoman Sara Jacobs (D-CA) told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota recently. “[I]t can take everyone’s data and create mass surveillance architecture to be able to track people who are traveling out of state, who should be pregnant but aren’t, searching… for abortion pills or for clinics or how to get to California, for instance where I represent.”

This narrative is completely detached from reality.

Pregnant women who seek abortions are not being criminalized, and there is zero probable cause for law enforcement to acquire a warrant in Rep. Jacobs’s dystopian vision.

Also, it should be noted that the type of medical tyranny Jacobs is warning about was proposed by the Left during the height of the COVID pandemic.

“Right now, there are no protections for how that data could be used by law enforcement at the state or local level or by non-profit groups like local right-wing non-profits, small right-wing non-profit groups, who could be buying or getting that data in order to, you know, be able to take part in the bounty law that’s part of the Texas anti-abortion legislation,” the Congresswoman claimed.

This is #BlueAnon nonsense.

But the conspiracy theories of the Left get the so-called “mainstream” media’s acceptance, as Camerota offered no pushback whatsoever to the absurd suggestion.

“I mean, Congresswoman, this sounds so Big Brother,” Camerota responded. “It sounds so Handmaiden’s Tale. It’s just, you know, dystopian what — you believe that tech platforms would hand over information like that to, you know, some Sheriff who came calling.”

Democrats do not handle losing well, especially on the issue of abortion.

For decades, they viewed it as a sacrament, and now it is no longer protected by a flawed Supreme Court decision.

CNN’s S.E. Cupp just redefined “clueless” and explained why the network is sinking faster than the Titanic

Published

Democrats are in the middle of the most spectacular political belly flop ever. 

You’d think political “analysts” would be able to grasp that obvious fact.

But CNN’s S.E. Cupp just redefined “clueless” and explained why the network is sinking faster than the Titanic.

America’s economy is falling to pieces with some Wall Street veterans predicting a nasty recession is on the way.

Gas prices continue hitting new records, inflation is out of control, and international relations are in shambles with two nuclear powers inching towards what could become World War III. 

But all Democrats can do is panic over losing the ability to kill unborn babies anywhere and everywhere. 

Following the announcement that the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the talking heads on CNN’s New Day proved why Democrats — and the network that acts as their press department — are quickly sinking into irrelevance. 

Ironically, they’re so deep in denial one commentator, entertainingly enough, tried to project the Democrat’s woes onto the Republican party.

At one point, host John Berman asked commentator S.E. Cupp – who once claimed to be a conservative until she realized she wasn’t the next Megyn Kelly – about what she expects going forward.

“Now that anti-abortion activists got what they wanted, right, which is to overturn Roe vs. Wade, what happens now politically, do you think?” Berman asked.

Cupp’s answer had more to do with leftist fantasy than reality. 

It’s hard to imagine the Republican Party surviving this,” Cupp claimed. “Um, between anti-abortion, anti-LGBTQ, book banning, anti-democracy, I mean, add all of the regressive bullshit — uh, garbage, sorry, to this — I don’t take that back — um, add it all together and I don’t know who is left in the future — in future generations to be drawn to this Party.”

Actually, she just listed most of the reasons moderate Democrats have been abandoning the Party and fleeing to the GOP for some sanity. 

They simply can’t claim a biology degree is needed to define a woman one day and then flip back to crying about “women’s rights” the next. 

Democrats are losing their voter base because most reasonable people don’t want to kill unborn babies, serve up porn in school libraries, or push an aggressive, experimental gender confusion agenda. 

Radical leftists have clearly hijacked the Democrat Party.

And CNN’s so-called “experts” can’t even see what’s happening — or that they’re helping destroy the Democrats’ chances for elections to come.

CNN’s Brian Stelter just received some news that has him sweating bullets

Published

CNN is going through an identity crisis.

Their new corporate bosses are not pleased with the product they inherited.

Now, CNN’s Brian Stelter just received some news that has him sweating bullets.

CNN is undergoing a massive shake-up in the aftermath of Warner Bros. and Discovery completing their merger.

Board member John Malone, who was the largest shareholder in Discovery prior to the merger and allegedly possesses a libertarian streak, has been vocal about his belief that CNN has become too biased.

In fact, Malone recently suggested that he’d like to see CNN become more like Fox News, and strike a better balance between hard news and opinion hosts.

One of the hosts who have been identified as being too biased is Brian Stelter, the network’s supposed media “watchdog,” who not only has a major left-wing bias, but is also not bringing in viewers.

“CNN’s Reliable Sources with left-wing host Brian Stelter had its lowest-rated episode since September 2019 on Sunday when only 580,000 viewers tuned into the struggling program,” Fox News reported. “‘Reliable Sources’ also struggled in the advertiser-coveted demographic of adults age 25-54, averaging only 73,000 viewers from the critical category.”

“Stelter’s program shed 13% of the total audience who tuned into the show that precedes it, ‘Fareed Zakaria GPS,’ and lost 25% of Zakaria’s viewers among the demo,” Fox News continued. “It was Stelter’s smallest audience since Sept. 15, 2019.”

Stelter has been called the “attack dog” of disgraced former CNN president Jeff Zucker, who was run out of the network for lying about a relationship he had with network executive Allison Gollust. 

And he even had the audacity to publicly criticize one of his new bosses, Malone, after his contention that CNN was too biased.

Without Zucker to protect him, Stelter has truly put himself on the chopping block.

His low ratings and biased reporting could be the pretext needed to run Stelter out of the network.

For example, CNN’s so-called “media watchdog” refused to comment on the corporate press refusing to cover the assassination attempt against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh with any seriousness.

New CNN president, Chris Licht, already seems to be trying to rein in the network’s radical left-wing hosts.

He recently suggested that they not use the phrase “the big lie” to describe former President Donald Trump’s comments about possible voter fraud in the 2020 election.

Licht’s rationale was that the phrase was a Democrat talking point, which is correct.

According to internal leaks after Zucker’s ouster, several of CNN’s on-air personalities have voiced their frustration about the new direction of the network.

A tiger can’t change his stripes, so CNN will undoubtedly retain its left-wing bias.

It will probably just do so without Stelter.
