Donald Trump just watched this major ally betray him to CNN

Published

Donald Trump has few allies in the so-called “mainstream” media.

The President counts on a handful of outlets to cover him fairly.

But Donald Trump just watched this major ally betray him to CNN.

Matt Drudge set the agenda in the conservative movement for decades.

Ever since his website broke the story that Newsweek spiked a report about Bill Clinton having an affair with Monica Lewinsky, the Drudge Report became a “go-to” destination that helped shape American political discourse for decades.

But in recent months, many Americans have soured on the Drudge Report.

The site took on an increasingly anti-Trump tone and became indistinguishable from fake news CNN in its coverage of the President.

President Trump recently tweeted out his frustration with the Drudge Report after the site posted a headline ripping Trump for saying the United States had moved past the peak of the coronavirus outbreak.

“I gave up on Drudge (a really nice guy) long ago, as have many others. People are dropping off like flies!” the President tweeted.

In another sign that Drudge had moved Left, Drudge teamed up with fake news CNN to dispute the President’s claim.

“The past 30 days has been the most eyeballs in Drudge Report‘s 26 year-history,” Drudge told fake news CNN. “Heartbreaking that it has been under such tragic circumstances.”

The coronavirus pandemic provided a boost in traffic for all news sites and TV shows. With sports shutdown, Americans spend more time consuming news about the outbreak trying to figure out when their lives will begin to return to a semblance of normal.

Before the coronavirus outbreak there was evidence Drudge’s web traffic slipped as readers abandoned the site as it drifted left.

From September 2019 to December 2019 Alexa – which tracks web traffic – showed Drudge declined in popularity plummeting from the 637th most visited website around the globe to the 844th.

In addition, from July to November Drudge shed nearly 30 percent of its audience.

Now in the latest spat with the President, Drudge running to CNN to contradict President Trump will only alienate more readers.

    If I understand your article about Drudge, anyone who questions Trump or disagrees is automatically fake news and liberal? If Trump disagrees with someone or something they are automatically wrong no matter what?

    Dr. Shiva was correct when he said that President Trump is surrounded by sharks.

    The President has a penchant for speaking loudly and often about the left and those who are actually insane enough to ascribe to the left’s foolishness. I wish he would use more thoughtfulness when tweeting, but fact is, he is more often than not factually honest when he attacks the FAUX news.

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

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.
