Dan Rather went on CNN to attack Trump with one word that will infuriate you

Published

on

Disgraced journalist Dan Rather’s entire life is currently based around attacking President Trump.

He can’t wait for an opportunity to go on television to seem relevant.

And he just went on CNN to attack Donald Trump with one word that will infuriate you.

Dan Rather has become completely unhinged in recent years.

And in a recent segment with CNN’s Brian Stelter, he proved just how insane he has become.

Stelter asked Rather about a Tweet he made where he refers to the movement backing President Trump as a “cult.”

Rather doubled down on that claim, adding that “cults generally don’t end well.”

NewsBusters reports:

After playing a clip of NBC’s Saturday Night Live mocking Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Stelter treated Rather’s unhinged rambling on Twitter with reverence:

Dan, you tweeted something that might be related to this. You said the other day, “I have covered many cults. Some end with a bang, others with a whimper, but they invariably end. The question is how much damage they leave in their wake.” Is Mitch McConnell part of the Trump cult?

That’s right, the guy who was opining about how “truth still matters” wanted his guest to talk about how the President runs a cult, of which there was no evidence.

Along with the ominous note that “cults generally don’t end well,” Rather agreed with his host’s notion about McConnell and claimed that all of Trump’s supporters were members of the cult and others knew it too:

“And I’m not the only one making this observation that increasingly President Trump’s support seems cultish. It’s all about him it’s not about the policy, it’s not about the standards of politics. Ronald Reagan had a very solid following but he stood for something in terms of policy. Franklin Roosevelt, same way.”

Rather seems to think that people being excited about a president who is finally following through on his promises, is akin to a cult.

But he never had anything similar to say to Obama’s fanatical supporters that stuck with him despite him not following through on any of his promises, and presiding over a failing economy.

Do you think Trump supporters are a cult?

    As usual, the limpies of the left who never have an original thought, have adopted the failed, fake jounalist’s “cult”.
    Dan Rather –” in what was supposed to be the defining moment of his CBS career, Rather compiled a report which the left hoped would take down then President George W. Bush prior to the 2004 elections. Instead, the documents Rather used to “prove” Bush’s Texas Air Guard service had been less then stellar were actually forgeries. Like, outright. Instead of admitting his error, Rather doubled down on the report and was subsequently released from CBS News a year earlier than his contract intended.”

    He is, at least, partially right. I wonder how much more damage the cult of Progressivism will do before they’re stopped, and how many more in vitro human sacrifices they will get by with?

    Will, You are so right, they are so stupid they can’t even see what they are wishing for. They all need to go to China to live for a while to see what it is like. They all need to watch a video of Kitty Werthmann, she was young in Austria when the German’s took over. She tells the whole story.email http://www.kittywerthmann.com it is worth the time.

    No Trump supporters are NOT PART OF A CULT! We are American citizens who can see the truth of what the democrats have been trying to do since day 1 of this Presidents administration. Sondland has been accused of lying today during his testimony. Everybody seems to forget who is truly in control of this impeachmeny hear and the office of the president,in my opinion God is in control. Not schiff not Nancy Pelosi and ultimately not president Trump. God is in control and it has nothing to do with being in a cult. The word cult was meant to smear and embarrasse those who vote for Donald Trump. The same way this hearing is meant to muddy up the president and lose him votes. NOT GONNA HAPPEN! VOTE PEOPLE AND TAKE A FRIEND. DONALD TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT 2020.

    Rather needs to be told that he is no longer a Journalist nor anyone significant in anyone’s life. He just needs to go away. I never liked him when he was on TV and I don’t like him any better now.

    Correction Disgusted, Dan Rather never was a real journalist. He is a pathological liar and that is what finally got him kicked off of CBS. He lasted a long time lying his teeth out on nearly every nightly news segment.

    I did not vote in 2016 election. Did not want Clinton, not sure of Trump. I am now firmly behind him. Why? Because he is keeping his word, doing what he said he would. Has any other politician done what he said he would do? No!

    I am not part of a cult, but part of a people that like plain speaking and a man who is totally transparent.

    The so called “Elite” are just far left clowns who totally disrespect those with a different opinion. God help us if a liberal government gets in power again. AOC might be right, the end is near.

    Regarding Rather, I feel sad for him, 40 years ago he was relevant.

    Dan Rather should not be given a microphone or a voice for his thoughts…he has proven long ago he is not worthy or intelligent enough on both sides of a discussion to make anyone listen to his replies of his negative thoughts…he is jealous because is not in demand with his out right lies about the news anymore …and of course he dislikes Trump ..And Jim Acosta must be his cousin …they r both extremely rude and ignorant….why do people continue to speak out when they know they are lying because of their hate n ignorance???????????

    Attacking POTUS Trump is NOT a good strategy! . . . Especially if you are a DISGRACED commentator. Doing so makes you a Left Wing Liberal LOSER like the REST of the SWAMP CREATURES.

CNN just picked Chris Cuomo’s replacement, but the real news is getting swept under the rug

Published

on

After months of basically admitting that nobody is better than the best talent CNN can attract, the network is finally trying to relaunch its primetime lineup.

And CNN just picked Chris Cuomo’s replacement.

But the real news is getting swept under the rug.

CNN is taking on water faster than the Titanic.

While the network created the 24/7 news cycle, CNN has turned into yet another failing corporate-controlled media outlet, slowly circling the drain into bankruptcy.

When Chris Cuomo was fired from the network in disgrace for using his position to help save his crooked brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, from a sexual assault allegations, he took a significant portion of the executive team down with him.

Now, CNN is supposedly charting a new direction under new CEO Chris Licht, cleaning up the mess that the network has become and, somehow, turning it into a legitimate news network.

Over the past several months, Licht has taken major steps to doing just that, even making clear to his incredulous staff – on multiple occasions – that they can either ditch the left-wing propaganda and act like real journalists, or seek employment elsewhere.

Such a tectonic shift at the network was spurred by the merger of CNN parent company Warner Media and Discovery, Inc. into Warner Bros. Discovery, which brought in a new board of directors that aren’t messing around.

Several months ago, Warner Bros. Discovery board member John Malone, who was the largest shareholder in Discovery prior to the merger, made clear that CNN was charting a new path.

“I would like to see CNN evolve back to the kind of journalism that it started with, and actually have journalists, which would be unique and refreshing,” Malone told CNBC.

After several months of allowing his staff to once again establish their profound level of incompetence, Licht finally took action, firing the incompetent and unethical left-wing hack, Brian Stelter.

Then he dropped the ball.

After Stelter’s exit, media industry observers assumed other unhinged leftists on staff would follow him out the door.

It looked likely when he demoted Don Lemon to a new morning show, leaving John Berman and Brianna Keilar without a time slot.

If CNN were serious about tamping down left-wing bias, the obvious move would have been to show Keilar to the door.

She’s an unapologetic left-wing extremist who spends more time slamming Fox News than attempting to report any actual news herself.

Instead, Licht has announced that Jake Tapper will be taking over the timeslot left vacant by Chris Cuomo’s firing, and quietly let Keilar slide into Tapper’s old slot.

When bragging about CNN’s new lineup, Licht was careful to avoid mentioning Keiler at all, probably in hopes it would go mostly unnoticed.

That’s certainly possible, considering how few viewers any CNN show manages to attract these days.

Much to Keilar’s irritation, Fox News has now spent 83 consecutive weeks as the most watched cable news network, according to Nielsen ratings released September 12, with an average of 1.42 million daily viewers.

Meanwhile, CNN is dragging way behind with an average of just 597,000 average daily viewers, a number that you would think would prompt Licht to get serious about cleaning up the newsroom.

But it’s clear he’s all talk and no real action.

This left-wing columnist’s irrational babblings on CNN will make you bust a gut laughing

Published

on

CNN has long been a major cog in Democrats’ propaganda machine.

But new network CEO Chris Licht claims he’s going to change that even if the changes that have been made haven’t amounted to much change.

And this left-wing columnist’s irrational babblings on CNN will make you bust a gut laughing.

Arwa Mahdawi, who writes a column called “The Week in Patriarchy” for British rag The Guardian, recently tried her hand at being a media critic, penning a new piece entitled, “New ‘objective’ CNN appears to be making itself objectively right-wing.”

She accuses CNN of “wanting to be the new Fox News and not even trying to hide it,” all because the network has begun being slightly objective in their coverage of world events.

While CNN CEO Chris Licht does seem to be taking some minor steps toward making CNN into a real news network, accusing a network that still employs the likes of Don Lemon of somehow becoming “right-wing” is laughable.

The only way Mahdawi’s perception that the ever so slight changes CNN has made in recent weeks somehow amount to the network becoming “right-wing,” is if she honestly believes anyone to the Right of Karl Marx is a “right-wing extremist.”

Mahdawi described Chris Licht’s recent Capitol Hill diplomacy tour – in which he met with lawmakers from both parties, and promised CNN is moving away from what he described as “alarmist programming” – as a “Republican bootlicking tour.”

She lamented the firing of left-wing extremist hack Brian Stelter and self-proclaimed “journalist” John Harwood, erroneously claiming they were both fired for “being critical of Trump.”

Of course, such a claim is beyond outrageous.

If CNN were using criticism of former President Donald Trump as a litmus test for who should be fired, there would literally be no employees left at the network.

On top of that, Mahdawi blew a gasket over CNN’s decision to hire John Miller, a former deputy commissioner of intelligence and counter-terrorism for the New York City Police Department (NYPD), as the network’s new law enforcement and intelligence analyst.

Her gripe with Miller was that he once testified that, in his opinion, the NYPD did not inappropriately spy on Muslims in the city following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

She blasted the hiring on that point, and that point alone, claiming she wouldn’t be surprised if CNN made Donald Trump their new “election integrity analyst.”

Trump had previously posted on Truth Social, “if low ratings CNN ever went Conservative, they would be an absolute gold mine, and I would help them to do so.”

While going all-in on being “Fox News lite” would certainly improve CNN’s dismal ratings – their programming has, on numerous occasions, failed to draw the same ratings as late-night infomercials – there is no indication of them going in that direction.

At best, under their new leadership, CNN is simply attempting to move closer to the center in order to be slightly more credible, rather than the alarmist, left-wing propaganda network they currently are.

Left-wing extremists have long counted on CNN to spew their propaganda.

And now, they are horrified at the mere thought of it becoming a slightly more credible news network.

Don Lemon is sweating bullets after he received this nearly career-ending news

Published

on

These days what happens behind the scenes at CNN is significantly more interesting than anything that ever makes the “news.”

In fact the Fake News outlet’s few remaining viewers are probably just there to watch the trainwreck unfold.

And now Don Lemon is sweating bullets after he received this nearly career-ending news.

Weeks after noted hack Brian Stelter was unceremoniously fired by CNN, there’s another shakeup underway.

Don Lemon’s primetime show is being canceled, and the host is being transferred to a morning time slot — a humiliating demotion in an industry where getting to primetime is talking heads’ ultimate goal.

In spite of having a primetime slot, Don Lemon Tonight only managed to pull in 396,000 viewers on average last month, which made it the 40th most watched show in all of cable news.

At this point, Lemon has to be wondering how close he came to getting canned, and whether CNN’s new leadership is simply hoping the insulting schedule change will cause him to abandon ship on his own.

After all, in this business climate, it’s a lot easier for CNN to fire a white guy, like Stelter, but that doesn’t mean the company won’t do whatever it takes to avoid going under.

For now, Lemon gets to have all the fun of joining the “reimagined” morning show that will replace New Day.

Implementing the pipe dreams of frightened news executives and their overpaid consultants is a task like no other for broadcasters, not to mention a sure recipe for disaster.

Ironically, there seems to be just one strategy the big bosses at CNN have hit on – they’re better off without high-profile left-wing extremists than with them.

The Fake News network still hasn’t replaced Chris Cuomo, who was fired last year for using his position to help his disgraced former Democrat Governor brother, Andrew Cuomo, escape multiple scandals.

Of course, that’s not surprising, considering how far out of step with the American public left-wing extremists in the corporate-controlled media have become.

Earlier this year new CNN CEO Chris Licht informed employees that they needed to start acting like actual, real journalists, rather than partisan hacks.

And now, another CNN host is biting her fingernails.

The future of New Day host Brianna Keilar is up in the air, as she hasn’t been named as part of CNN’s new “reimagined” morning show – a strong indicator that she could be the next high-profile host to follow Brian Stelter out the door.

The fact that she didn’t bother to respond to Fox News when asked to comment on her future plans is even more telling.

You’d better believe if she had anything worth bragging about, she would be quick to tell everyone about it.

At this point, it looks like time to get a big bowl of popcorn and watch the dumpster fire burn.
