Democrat Eric Swalwell might never go on CNN again after he got asked one question

Published

on

Rep. Eric Swalwell has been at the forefront of every anti-Trump conspiracy theory.

So naturally, he has made regular appearances on CNN for the past four years.

But he might never go on CNN again after he got asked one question you won’t believe.

Eric Swalwell went from being a little-known Congressman to a left-wing “resistance” hero when he became a leading figure peddling anti-Trump conspiracy theories on networks like CNN.

He is the Congressman who released the so-called “whistleblower” allegation against Trump relating to a 2019 call with Ukraine’s President, which resulted in Trump’s first impeachment trial.

And he is a current impeachment manager for the latest allegations Democrats are trying to convict Trump of in order to bar him from running for office ever again.

He was likely hoping for answers relating to that when he made a recent appearance with Jake Tapper on CNN.

Instead, Tapper surprisingly questioned him about his relationship with an accused Chinese spy, which many allege became sexual.

Tapper asked, “House Republicans have called for you to step down from the House Intelligence Committee because of this situation. You were informed by the FBI that you had been targeted by an alleged Chinese spy, who I guess is no longer in the country. Have you learned any more about this case since this broke in early December? And can you clarify how much contact you had with this Chinese national who goes by Fang Fang or Christine Fang?”

Swalwell replied, “Jake, this is a 2015 meeting about a person that I had as a volunteer back in 2012 on the campaign. The FBI has said that I did nothing wrong. Don’t take it from me. There was no wrongdoing. I’ve learned nothing new. And Speaker Pelosi has said she is keeping me on the committee. By the way, Jake, Republicans were briefed on this conduct, that this individual was trying to do with me and many other members of Congress, back in 2015. I think this is retaliation more than anything else.”

Swalwell clearly wasn’t happy with this question.

But Tapper still questioned him in the lightest way possible.

Tapper simply says he was “targeted by an alleged Chinese spy,” while ignoring the fact that the alleged spy gained a lot of influence in his office, even hand-placing interns in his Congressional office.

It has also been alleged that the relationship between Swalwell and the spy was sexual in nature, which of course, Tapper didn’t question him on.

To downplay the allegations in the question and then allow Swalwell to get away with misdirecting in his response borders on journalistic malpractice.

But you can be sure Swalwell was furious with Tapper for even bringing it up.

Biden’s tall tales are getting so bad even CNN has had enough

Published

on

The Fake News Media has been running cover for Joe Biden since before he even set foot in the White House.

So-called “journalists” have turned a blind eye to countless lies Biden has told over the year and a half.

But Biden’s tall tales are getting so bad even CNN has had enough.

During the 1980s, conservatives in the Washington, D.C. area would drive around with bumper stickers on their cars that said “I don’t Believe the Washington Post.”

That was 40 years ago!

Now of course, most of what we consider the “mainstream” or corporate media is nothing more than the official public relations wing of the radical Left, or the Democrat Party spin machine.

They crank out articles and news pieces that fit the Left’s narrative.

But every once in a while, even the democrats can push it too far for their friends in the Fake News Media.

That’s what happened recently when Joe Biden’s White House tweeted out something that even CNN and the Washington Post had to challenge.

The official White House Twitter account claimed there was no COVID-19 vaccine available when President Joe Biden took office in January 2021. 

It read:

“When President Biden took office, millions were unemployed and there was no vaccine available. In the last 15 months, the economy has created 8.3M jobs and the unemployment rate stands at 3.6% — the fastest decline in unemployment to start a President’s term ever recorded.”

Wait a minute.

Didn’t a picture of President Joe Biden receiving his first COVID-19 vaccine dose get tweeted out on Dec. 21, 2020?

Yes.  Yes it was.  

Here is the Tweet: 

“Today, I received the COVID-19 vaccine. To the scientists and researchers who worked tirelessly to make this possible — thank you. We owe you an awful lot. And to the American people — know there is nothing to worry about. When the vaccine is available, I urge you to take it.”

According to the “Our World in Data” website, there were some 19 million Americans who had received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by Biden’s Inauguration Day on Jan. 20, 2021. 

And there were 3.5 million Americans who were already fully vaccinated by the time Biden became president.

Joe Biden might want to do some “fact checking.”

The Washington Post’s resident “fact-checker” Glenn Kessler said, “Who’s manning the @WhiteHouse Twitter account? Delete this false tweet. Biden himself has said 8% of seniors had gotten the vaccine on the day he took office. Biden was one of them.”

CNN “fact-checker” Daniel Dale weighed in also. “‘There was no vaccine available’ is very clearly false. More than 3 million Americans were fully vaccinated and more than 18 million had at least one dose by Biden’s Inauguration Day. Biden himself was fully vaccinated. Obviously became more widely available with time, but no doubt, and they’re free to tweet ‘the vaccine wasn’t available to much of the public’ or whatever. ‘There was no vaccine available,’ the end, goes way too far given that there were nearly 19 million people with shots, wrongly suggesting the whole rollout began under Biden.”

When CNN and The Washington Post attack a Democrat, you know something has gone horribly wrong.

Later in the week, the White House “corrected” the Tweet to say the vaccine was not “widely” available when Joe Biden took office.

CNN executives wanted to crawl under the boardroom table when they heard this embarrassing news

Published

The leftists over at CNN have always been their own biggest fans. 

But over the past year, they’ve been served a massive dose of reality with tanking viewership numbers. 

And CNN executives wanted to crawl under the boardroom table when they heard this embarrassing news.

CNN more or less created the 24/7 news cycle. 

They were the first major cable news network to go head-to-head with legacy network news organizations including ABC, CBS, and NBC.

Now, they’ve been slapped with the ultimate embarrassing news.

When Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election—and proceeded to make good on his promise to start draining The Swamp—something snapped inside leftist newsrooms. 

The result has been a manic downward spiral proving that Bernard Goldberg was dead-on when he wrote Bias more than 20 years ago: members of the media aren’t merely veering off course at times. 

Instead, the corporate-controlled media is packed to the gills with people so skewed in their thinking that their idea of where “center” is would cause Karl Marx to do a double take. 

Of course, that view doesn’t even come close to reflecting the views of Americans. 

This country has been divided almost exactly down the middle since hanging chads had conservatives holding their breath lest Al Gore take over our lives. 

For decades, leftist members of the media managed to hold their noses discreetly and pretend they were providing balanced coverage. 

But after Donald Trump won his bid for the White House, they got way too honest about how they really felt. 

As long as Donald Trump was in office, Americans watched the train wreck happening over at CNN in fascination. 

But once CNN took on the arduous project of pretending Joe Biden is a sane and competent leader, their viewers had every reason to abandon ship. 

Now, CNN is not only getting its tail kicked by Fox News on a daily basis—Newsmax is also cleaning up by beating Ted Turner’s baby at its own game. 

On Friday, May 6 Newsmax broadcast Donald Trump’s Pennsylvania rally drawing a stunning 738,000 viewers. 

Meanwhile, the best CNN could muster was 645,000 viewers with Anderson Cooper 360

Getting whipped by Fox News is a painful reality CNN executives have been forced to get used to facing on a daily basis. 

Tucker Carlson pulled 2.85 viewers that night while The Five attracted 3.15 million viewers.

Americans are done getting their marching orders from a bunch of arrogant looney leftists who couldn’t care less about issues that truly matter to them.

CNN’s big boss proves his company is doomed to fail

Published

on

These days CNN could probably put color bars on the air and attract as many viewers as their so-called “talent” manages to capture. 

New leadership was supposed to help get the news organization off of  life support. 

But now CNN’s big boss just proved his company is doomed to fail. 

CNN’s new chairman Chris Licht says he wants a “fun” show in the 9:00 p.m. slot which is news industry code for “I don’t know what the hell I’m doing.” 

Whenever news bosses start doing something “different,” it’s a prelude to failure and absolutely reeks of desperation. 

Now the new head of CNN global is proving he has zero idea how to save the company as he recently told employees he wants to “try some things” in Chris Cuomo’s old time slot. 

“Let’s have some fun with it,” Licht said in an employee meeting recording which the New York Times managed to get. “Let’s just try some things. But my intention is to have a show ready to launch in the fall at 9 o’clock.”

That is a shocking admission for any television news company in the middle of the critical May sweeps where any news boss worth his salt is battling for market share—especially during the valuable primetime hours. 

The news business isn’t rocket science. 

Fortunes have been made simply telling people what’s happened in the world each day. 

The executive who is known as something of a “turnaround expert” started out by pushing for hard news coverage and even went as far as to try to negotiate a “cease-fire” on aggressive coverage with Fox News. 

According to a Daily Mail report, he “told staffers that he plans to push hosts away from ‘opinionated and emotional’ reporting that became prevalent during Donald Trump’s presidency.” 

But navigating the CNN ship out of treacherous waters is one massive task. 

The network has been taking on water like it’s the Titanic since Donald Trump left office. 

With a war raging in Ukraine, you’d think the original 24/7 news network would be pulling in plenty of viewers. 

But Fox News continues to win the battle for eyeballs. 

Fox News had the top 12 news shows in April with an average 1.52 million total viewers each day compared to CNN’s 582,000. 

Licht is going to have to move on from feeling around for something “fun” to making bank in a hurry if he wants to keep his network alive.
