CNN’s Don Lemon is everything that’s wrong with CNN.
The network presents Lemon as a straight news anchor, but in reality Lemon is a hardcore Democrat Party political activist.
And now Don Lemon started crying on camera for a very strange reason.
CNN is offering wall-to-wall coverage of the murder trial of Dereck Chauvin, the Minneapolis police officer accused of killing George Floyd.
Tucker Carlson said CNN is treating Chauvin’s trial like the Super Bowl because CNN wants more riots and to call America racist.
During Thursday night’s broadcast of his show, Don Lemon broke down in tears as far-left professor Cornel West told viewers that black men needed to start intervening when they saw police abusing and mistreating other black men.
“I’m telling you, brother, if the police can’t do it, we have to do it ourselves. I’ll tell you this, too. Let me add one thing, brother. I thought, brother George. I thought about my brother, and I thought about my father, and I thought about my grandfather. I’m not going to stand there for no 9 minutes and 29 seconds and watch somebody murder my father. No, no! Uh-uh, no, no, no. Martin Luther King Jr. talked about pacifism. I believe in nonviolence, but I’m not going to watch that kind of murder. I love my brother Charles McMillian. That is why he was crying. That’s what his tears were about. He felt helpless. We are not going to do that. Some of us black folk, some of us black men, we are not going to stand there. We are going to have to intervene in some way. You aren’t going to kill us like that, and we remain spectators,” West declared.
West then referenced Lemon’s book This is the Fire and explained to Lemon that what the CNN host wrote about silence not being an option in the face of racism applied to police abuse and that black men needed to start exercising self-defense.
“Somewhere I read, silence is not an option. I don’t stand with the silence. That’s the last two sentences of your letter to Drew, your letter to your nephew. But America needs to understand that, too. We’ve got to self-respect. We’ve got to self-defense. We intervene when you start killing us like that,” West stated.
Lemon was then shown holding his face while sobbing.
This type of performance art is why many Americans have a hard time swallowing the idea that CNN is a news network and that Don Lemon is an actual news anchor.

CNN’s Jeff Zucker turned white as a ghost when he was handed these numbers
CNN enjoyed a good amount of success during the Trump years.
Democrats and Never-Trumpers would tune in the millions to hear the network’s leftist talking heads talk about how evil Donald Trump is and how he was destroying the nation.
But CNN’s Jeff Zucker turned white as a ghost when he was handed these numbers.
A recently released ratings poll shows Fox News is king and CNN is drowning.
CNN saw massive declines, shedding nearly 90% of its early 2021 audience.
Last year, from January 4 – 10 CNN enjoyed a brief post-election spike and was averaging 2.7 million viewers but the numbers from last week paint a very different picture.
Last week, CNN averaged only 548,000 viewers.
That’s just pathetic – and even more pathetic is the people at CNN can’t seem to figure out it’s because they’re peddling a bunch of leftist lies.
Even worse for CNN is the demographic that is tuning out the most.
Advertisers clamor for the 25-54 demographic and that’s where CNN lost the most – a whopping 86% decline in that age bracket.
Not surprisingly, MSNBC also dropped in viewership losing 67% of its total audience from one year ago.
It looks like those primetime hours of 8-11 p.m. are the biggest struggle for both networks.
In 2021, CNN was bringing in 4.2 million viewers in that timeslot but now a mere 705,000 are tuning in.
MSNBC lost about 66% of its primetime viewers, but Fox News reigned supreme by retaining 55% of its primetime viewers in all categories.
CNN was quick to brag about its coverage of the Capitol riot resulting in the most watched day in the history of the network.
Unfortunately for CNN, the same didn’t happen on the one year anniversary when the network was unable to crack 1.5 million during any hour of the day the network “commemorated” the January 6 anniversary.
CNN and MSNBC, along with the Democrat Party and numerous Never-Trumpers, don’t understand that the lies, the propaganda, it’s not working anymore.
The American people are waking up and realizing what a mess the Left has gotten them into in a very short amount of time and they’re sick of it.
Sorry, CNN, but what you’re selling people just aren’t buying.

CNN made a push to let criminals get away with anything short of murder in this shocking segment
Nothing sells like fear.
Based on a recent story out of New York City we can only wonder if CNN’s assignment editors are worried they’ll soon run out of manufactured emergencies.
And CNN made a push to let criminals get away with anything short of murder in this shocking segment.
While teleprompter-reading anchors get all the attention, the real power in broadcast newsrooms is wielded on those behind the assignment editor’s desk.
They decide what is – and isn’t – news before we even wake up each day.
And absolutely nobody can beat them for sniffing out something terrifying – real or imagined – in any scrap of information that comes across their desks.
So, something was more than a little off when the news network rushed to defend the Manhattan District Attorney’s pro-crime policies.
A story about Alvin Bragg’s pro-crime approach looked a lot more like a press conference for the new DA rather than anything remotely resembling journalism.
In CNN correspondent Laura Jarrett’s words, “He’s essentially telling his prosecutors in his office, do not get bogged down with low level petty crimes because if you do that we cannot focus on the real serious, violent crime that everybody really cares about.”
But while CNN is treating “pushback” and “outrage” from police and private citizens as ignorant and counterproductive, the truth is that they’re covering for Bragg as he pushes to let criminals get away with almost anything short of murder.
The New York Post piece on Bragg resembles something more like journalism, pointing out that the DA won’t seek prison sentences in a “slew of criminal cases.”
“In his first memo to staff on Monday, Alvin Bragg said his office ‘will not seek a carceral sentence’ except with homicides and a handful of other cases, including domestic violence felonies, some sex crimes and public corruption,” the Post reported in an article.
For those without a law degree, “carceral” is defined as “of, relating to, or suggesting a jail or prison.”
The Post article also included this gem from Bragg’s memo to employees: “This rule may be excepted only in extraordinary circumstances based on a holistic analysis of the facts, criminal history, victim’s input (particularly in cases of violence or trauma), and any other information available.”
In other words, criminals can break the law as much as they want as long as things don’t get too obviously ugly.
It’s noteworthy the Post story is authored by five different journalists, which seems like a move to share the blame for taking on the DA.
While over at CNN, Jarrett (yes, she’s Obama political hack Valerie Jarrett’s daughter) claims Bragg isn’t just “another progressive prosecutor trying to make big changes in a city,” she’s dead wrong – and, no doubt, knows it.
If there’s a difference, it’s that he’s on a power trip actively implementing dangerous policies most progressives only dream about unleashing on the world.

CNN is so desperate they’re floating conspiracy theories to attack Sean Hannity
CNN continues to lag far behind Fox News in ratings.
The left-wing network has been forced to cover more scandals within its ranks than elsewhere.
Now CNN is so desperate they’re floating conspiracy theories to attack Sean Hannity.
CNN’s Brian Stelter must get sick of looking up in the ratings at Sean Hannity every week.
In fact, much of Stelter’s job at CNN is to watch Fox News and throw peanuts at the screen.
Stelter’s latest salvo against Fox News involved him hinting that Hannity was somehow a co-conspirator in the Capitol Hill riot.
The January 6 House Select Committee wants to talk to Hannity, which spurred Stelter to ponder:
“So I think it really comes down to that key question: what’s he hiding? What does he know over the past year that he hasn’t told his viewers or told the public? Is he in on it in some way? As we know, we’re learning about this vast conspiracy. Was he in on it in some fashion? If not, I’m sure he’ll want to share that as well.”
The Left always accuse the Right of trafficking in conspiracy theories, but this is base conspiracy theory nonsense.
And it’s coming from “the most trusted name in news.”
This is why Donald Trump constantly called CNN “fake news.”
Leaked text messages show that Hannity implored former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to get Trump to issue a statement and tell protesters and rioters to go home, which Trump did.
Hannity said via text, “Can he make a statement? Ask people to leave the Capitol.”
That doesn’t sound like someone who was egging on an “armed insurrection.”
But Democrats cannot let go of the bombastic January 6 narratives.
They cannot run on policy, so they have to run on fear-mongering about the end of democracy.
“[Hannity] certainly knows more than he has shared about what happened between Election Day and the insurrection. I think that’s absolutely true because he was on the phone. He was texting and all of this, of course…goes to the bigger issue: the pro-Trump media set the stage for the riot. And that’s something the 1/6 committee wants to explore.”
Stelter is not alone among Democrats in believing that January 6 was a grand plot between Trump and right-wing media to install a dictatorship.
And they say right-wingers are conspiracy theorists.
