Kayleigh McEnany dropped the hammer on Jim Acosta and sent him running for the hills

Published

on

CNN’s Jim Acosta thought he had White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany backed into a corner.

At a recent press briefing, Acosta glibly asked a question about Twitter “fact-checking” President Trump.

But Kayleigh McEnany dropped the mic on Jim Acosta with her response.

Kayleigh McEnany is winning the hearts of Trump supporters as she calls out the media’s hypocrisy.

This week, she sparred with the infamous Jim Acosta from CNN.

Acosta was waxing poetic about Twitter “fact checking” President Trump’s recent tweet about mail-in voting leading to voter fraud.

He claimed the president has “put fact-checkers to work across the world” and ended by asking if the administration was trying to “silence fact-checking.”

That’s when McEnany stepped in – rattling off a laundry list of Fake News authored by CNN.

The truth is, the American people would love to see more fact-checking.

But the problem is the mainstream media has totally abdicated their responsibility for accurate reporting in favor of writing anti-Trump propaganda.

So the media’s “fact checks” are nothing more than another weapon in their arsenal to smear conservatives.

Like when The Washington Post labels Trump campaign ads using former Vice President Joe Biden’s own words as “doctored” in attempt to dismiss the fact that Biden is mentally unfit for office.

Meanwhile, they turn a blind eye when Biden blatantly lies – like when he claimed “150 million Americans” were killed with guns since 2007.

That would’ve been half of the U.S. population!

What do you think of mainstream media so-called “fact-checkers?” Are they nothing more than a tool to attack President Trump?

    President elect Trump and President Trump have been under fire since he first announced his candidacy.None more vicious and underhanded as that Fake News Network CNN . They have since day one, attempted to smear and color Trump in any number of salacious manners and out and out lies,and misrepresentations.While all CNN “talking heads” engage in this tripe,none so vigorously and with little to no actual facts as those which come from Jim Acosta’s lying filthy mouth.

    CNN is NOT the Cable News Network. It has proven it self to be the “Clintonesque Newspeak Nonsense”! “Clintonesque” for full of lies like the Clintons; “Newspeak” from Orwell’s “1984”, where words are used to indicate opposite of what they mean; and “Nonsense” for what they peddle at all times. Why would anybody with any common sense listen to it or sponsor it?

    Kayleigh is a great spokesperson ! She calls out the fake news with courage and grace. The fake news needs to tell the truth, but I don’t think they know how. Kayleigh is telling it like it should be. I like her way of handling the fake reporters/Trump haters.

    Does anybody real believe a word the new lady says? I guess the same people believe her that believe President Trump’s daily ‘contradictions’ or as most people would call them, lies. Or as Vice President Agnew called them, ‘damn lies’ – the day before he resigned. I will pray for President Trump and all of you, your brother in Christ, Larry.

    Jim Acosta is a really unintelligent person, even for a fake news reporter. Fake News CNN is appropriately represented by this fool. It is cheap, entertaining fun to watch him get run over by every Press Secretary.

    Jim Acosta is a bully who tries to throw his weight around and then he is outsmarted by a woman. CNN has a enough of a bad rep and should try to help themselves by removing Acosta who is all about promoting himself and not the truth.

    There are hundreds of young journalists working at CNN and other Main Stream media that want to do real news. I know because I was one of them back in 1974. I am now retired from The AP and CBS after nearly 40 years. However, these young journalists who were probably thrilled to get a job at a big news organization are now frustrated. They are being told to report on things that they know are not true. They sit in daily news agenda meetings with top editors and hear the story lines of the day are “get Trump.” Journalism is dead — and I and other retired news people – grieve.

    “Jim Acosta is a bully who tries to throw his weight around and then he is outsmarted by a woman.” MRP is a misogynist evidently, as he believes that men must be inherently smarter than women, and is lamenting that Acosta was “outsmarted by a woman”, intimating that women are more stupid than men.

    Acosta is s dolt of extreme magnitude, and nobody likes him to boot. He’s an arrogant whiny little girly man.

    And let’s not forget Biden’s lie about the death of his first wife. He blamed it on a drunk driver and ruined a man’s life. Yet, it was Joe’s WIFE who crossed the center line and caused the accident.

    It’s not fair that Trump only picks women who are intelligent to be on his staff and doesn’t allow women who think like Peelousi or Clinton on.

    Larry -pray for Hillary-she’s done more lying, making dirty deals to fund her foundation that pays them highly but not so much to the needy and she’s very forgetful-not a good sign. Put your prayers toward the aborted babies that your party espouses.

CNN executives just got the worst news of their lives when they saw these shocking numbers

Published

on

They were once considered the “king” of network news.

But lately CNN has been more like the court jester.

And CNN executives just got the worst news of their lives when they saw these shocking numbers.

It’s no secret CNN has been on a downward spiral over the past decade.

The network’s ratings haven’t come close to matching those of Fox News, to the point where it seems that they’re not even trying anymore.

And lately, it’s only gotten worse for CNN, as the network’s shows have even failed to beat the ratings of cooking shows and infomercials at times.

But the latest news about the network has even CNN’s own multi-millionaire executives scrambling for a soft place to land.

In fact, things are so bad at the network that invented the 24-hour news cycle that their restructured parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery, is planning massive cuts across the board.

The news comes as CNN is reportedly on pace to miss annual profit expectations – both internally and on Wall Street – by a substantial, larger-than-expected margin, as their ratings continue to plummet.

The corporate-controlled media outlet’s profitability is expected to decline to just $956.8 million in 2022, which would be the first year since 2016 that the troubled network has seen its profits dip below the $1 billion threshold.

The New York Times reported that CNN’s adjusted profit expectations fall significantly short of its initial 2022 target of $1.1 billion, according two people familiar with CNN’s operations.

In addition, though it seemed they couldn’t sink any lower, CNN’s ratings have yet to find a new bottom.

This quarter, the network’s average primetime viewership has dropped to just 639,000, a whopping 27% decrease from the same time period last year.

Despite its considerable resources – and the fact that every doctor’s office in America plays it all day, every day – the network continues to place a distant third behind Fox News and MSNBC.

The Times reported that CNN has invested millions of dollars into its coverage of the war in Ukraine, all in the hopes it would increase viewership.

That has not happened.

And the network is still paying costs related to its now-defunct CNN+ streaming service, which includes the salary of former Fox News anchor Chris Wallace.

The streaming service was highly touted and promoted heavily by the network, but as it turns out, no one wants to pay for the same leftist drivel they already weren’t watching for free.

The little-watched streaming service lasted just a month before it became one of the very first casualties of the Warner Bros. Discovery merger after executives shut it down back in April.

All expectations indicate Warner Bros. Discovery will enact drastic cuts and layoffs across its operations – especially at CNN – in the coming weeks, as CEO David Zaslav cleans house and fulfills his pledge to find at least $3 billion in savings for shareholders.

That process has already began, as Warner Bros. announced it won’t release its latest D.C. Comics franchise, Batgirl, despite reportedly pouring $70 million into its production, or a new Scooby Doo movie it reportedly budgeted $40 million for.

The studio also canceled the disaster of a TBS show that is Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.

Full Frontal’s ratings also consistently under-performed, as its disgusting host made increasingly nasty, bizarre, radical left-wing pronouncements, like calling Ivanka Trump a “cunt” and urging her viewers to harass Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito.

Of course, CNN’s new president, Chris Licht, told employees back in May that he didn’t expect Warner Bros. Discovery to enact more layoffs at CNN after the shutdown of CNN+.

But that looks like quite the empty promise now.

Erin Burnett allowed baseless attacks on Matt Gaetz by this top Pence staffer

Published

on

The war between supporters of Donald Trump and supporters of Mike Pence is heating up.

And Pence’s troops are finding allies in the corporate-controlled media.

That’s why Erin Burnett allowed baseless attacks on Matt Gaetz by this top Pence staffer.

There is an ancient proverb that says the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Of course, that’s not really true – an enemy is still an enemy.

But former Vice President Mike Pence’s team sure seems to think so.

That’s why they keep showing up on corporate-controlled media outlets, like CNN and MSNBC, spewing their anti-Trump vitriol and trying to promote Pence’s longshot bid for the 2024 Republican Presidential nomination.

And it’s why, for now at least, leftist talking heads, like CNNs Erin Burnett, are pretending to cozy up to the Pence forces.

That’s exactly what happened in a recent CNN interview she conducted with former Pence Chief of Staff Marc Short.

In fact, not only did she allow Short to attack Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL), she allowed it to go so far that Short actually made claims so outrageous they could result in legal action.

Former Vice President Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff, Marc Short, actually went so far as to accuse Rep. Gaetz of being a child trafficker. 

This libelous charge came after Burnett told Short the Congressman said the former Vice President would never be elected President.

Here is the actual exchange that took place:

BURNETT: “To take it back to Washington where you just referred, Matt Gaetz, obviously, a very loyal Trump ally at this point, fired at the Vice President, the former Vice President today, and the comments that Vice President Pence was making.”

“Here’s what Matt Gaetz said.” (Burnett then played the video of Gaetz’s comments).

REP. MATT GAETZ (R-FL): “Our America is proudly ultra MAGA, not some low energy roadside RINO safari. On that note, let me just say what everybody here knows. Mike Pence will never be President. Nice guy, not a leader.”

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BURNETT: “Marc?”

SHORT: “Well, I don’t know if Mike Pence will run for President in 2024, but I don’t think Matt Gaetz will have an impact on that. In fact, I’d be surprised if he’s still voting. It’s more likely he’ll be in prison for child trafficking by 2024.”

“And I’m actually surprised the Florida law enforcement still allows him to speak to teenage conferences like that. So, I’m not too worried what Matt Gaetz thinks.”

This shocking exchange shows just how deep the hatred of Donald Trump runs not only in the media, but also in the power corridors of Washington, D.C.

Marc Short is a life-long D.C. insider, and clearly his hatred of the former President runs deep.

He is even willing to work with CNN leftists, like Erin Burnett, to make unfounded and scurrilous charges about a U.S. Congressmen.

And Burnett, of course, is well-known for her radical leftist agenda and is all too wiling to work with the likes of Short to promote her anti-Trump, socialist agenda.

Her ilk can’t get enough of Team Pence’s help.

Liz Cheney’s post-Congress CNN gig may be in jeopardy over this hypocritical flip-flop

Published

on

Liz Cheney is trying to cozy up to Democrats.

They are her last political life line at this point.

And Liz Cheney’s post-Congress CNN gig may be in jeopardy over this hypocritical flip-flop.

Rep. Liz Cheney (RINO-WY) appeared on CNN, as she is wont to do these days, to fulfill her role of the Republican who will simply repeat “Orange Man Bad,” over and over again.

Cheney also clubs other Republicans who are not on board with her anti-Trump crusade.

And in response to a bill put forward by Democrats recently, CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Congresswoman Cheney about her previous stance on gay marriage.

“One issue, one question about a vote that you passed. You are one of 47 House Republicans who voted this week to codify same-sex marriage protections,” Tapper said. “The culmination of a remarkable personal evolution for you. You used to oppose same-sex marriage. That infamously went to a public falling out with your own sister. What’s your message to any Senate Republican who’s on the fence about voting for this bill?”

That “remarkable personal evolution” has always been about political expediency for Cheney, of course.

She even threw her own sister under the bus in order to win an election.

“Freedom means freedom for everybody” Cheney obediently responded. “I’ve said that my initial opposition ten years ago to same-sex marriage was wrong. I love my sister very much and her family very much. I believe that given the decision that we saw from the Supreme Court in the suggestion that the additional rulings could be at risk. The suggestion in Justice Thomas’s opinions about that means that we have got to step up and make sure that we’re providing protections.”

“So certainly, ensuring that we’ve provided that kind of protection for same-sex marriage is very important,” she continued. “So I would urge my Republican colleagues in the Senate to follow suit and to do the same.”

First, the fear-mongering about gay marriage going away is a political ploy from Democrats.

In the Dobbs decision, Justice Samuel Alito explicitly said that overturning Roe v. Wade did not threaten same-sex marriage.

There is no political will to do so.

In Justice Thomas’s concurring opinion, however, he pointed out the flaw of substantive due process issues.

He’s a constitutionalist who will point out bad case law when he sees it.

Democrats’ attempt to remake Rep. Cheney into a paragon of moral virtue is laughable, especially considering her – and her family’s – war-mongering past and present.
