One liberal news organization just beat back attempts to unionize in this hilariously hypocritical episode

Published

on

Left-wing online media outlets are known for their radical brand of liberalism.

And this includes complete support for unionization efforts around the country – just not at their places of business.

That’s why many Americans found news of one liberal news organization beating back unionization attempts and selling out their principles so hilariously hypocritical.

Left-wing media types are quick to promote forced unionization attempts of companies and governments around the nation.

They scream and bang their fists and sing the “Look for the Union Label”.

But when it comes to union efforts in their own organizations, principles be damned.

Take “The Young Turks” for example, the massively popular YouTube show and the producers’ wider network of liberal content.

If you have heard of them it is likely because of their epic 2016 election night meltdown. The video and clips of it have become viral since the episode aired.

There’s no denying it, these guys are as left-wing as they come.

In fact, “The Young Turks” founder Cenk Uygur is running for Congress as a far-left candidate. He was even briefly endorsed by Socialist Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, until Uygur’s history of vile anti-woman remarks was exposed.

Sanders withdrew the endorsement.

Even so, The Young Turks are still very supportive of Sanders, and they shouldn’t be discounted as a big leftist force – they get 200 million views a month on YouTube.

So, given their leftist, some would say socialist bent, it can be assumed they would be all in favor of their staff’s announcement that they were seeking to unionize.

As it turns out, not so much.

It seems their principles stop where their wallets begin.

“A week after TYT Union was formed to represent production and post-production workers at the popular liberal channel, the group announced that company leadership had refused voluntary recognition of the union,” The Washington Free Beacon reported Friday.

The refusal by The Young Turks, came shortly after their hero Sanders proposed penalizing companies that refuse to recognize unions.

Amazingly this is just the latest occurrence of a left-wing news outlet resisting unionization.

In a news release from the union, the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), a majority of employees at The Young Turks signed union cards. At that point, the union asked for recognition from The Young Turks and was denied.

If The Young Turk’s favorite candidate is elected and has his way, that will change.

Sanders said, “when a majority of workers in a bargaining unit sign valid authorization cards to join a union, they will have a union. If employers refuse to negotiate in good faith, we will impose strong penalties on those companies.”

In a tweet from the union, the IATSE voiced its outrage.

“This is a disappointing decision from an organization that presents itself as progressive,” the union said. “Join us in telling [The Young Turks] to respect their so-called principles and respect their workers!”

The great irony here is that The Young Turks are supporting and promoting a presidential candidate who would to punish them severely for their refusal to recognize the union.

They won’t be the only leftist news outlet that would feel the “Bern” if Sanders is elected.

Far-left ThinkProgress fired its entire unionized staff.

BuzzFeed, endured a walkout when unionizing employees were upset with their company’s delay in recognizing the union.

Left-wing publication Vox also had a union walkout last year.

The Young Turks and these other left-wing media outlets have proven they don’t practice what they preach when it comes to unionization.

    Is it really “news” to identify leftists as hypocritical? Tom Steyer made his billions in the energy industry, mostly coal, and says he wants to shut it down. Michael Bloomberg demands gun control while having armed security guards, and he supports restricted use on money is elections while bragging about how he “bought” the House majority for Democrats and drives his own candidacy with hundreds of millions of dollars. Elizabeth Warren demands integrity of public officials and business executives while she lies with impunity. Hypocrisy is endemic among “progressives.”

CNN is freaking out after Tucker Carlson played one video that could shut them down for good

Published

Tucker Carlson isn’t afraid to speak the truth, especially when everybody else is afraid to.

That makes him a major enemy to fake news networks like CNN.

And now CNN is freaking out after Tucker Carlson played one video that could shut them down for good.

With coronavirus forcing most of America into quarantine in their homes, anti-Trump news networks are working overtime to pump out anti-Trump propaganda.

They are constantly spreading lies to allege that Trump has allowed the virus to spread, and that every coronavirus-related death is his fault.

But in making these claims the network is outright ignoring many inconvenient truths, as Tucker Carlson pointed out on a recent airing of his Fox News show.

Carlson played a number of video clips showing officials in New York City, where the virus has hit the hardest, downplaying the virus, and even encouraging people not to practice social distancing, which Trump has championed.

In a clip from February 2, New York City Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot touts their preparedness for the virus, and encourages people to continue their lives like normal, even attending an upcoming parade.

“The risk to New Yorkers for Coronavirus is low and our preparedness as a city is very high,” Barbot begins. “There is no reason not to take the subway, not to take the bus, not to go out to your favorite restaurant, and certainly not to miss the parade next Sunday. I’m going to be there.”

Carlson also plays a clip featuring Democrat New York state Senator John Liu stating that “there’s really no need to panic and to avoid activities that we always do as New Yorkers” and that “diseases originate from anywhere or from particular places in the world.”

Along with Liu, Carlson also plays a clip from another Democrat New York State Representative Brian Kavanaugh, who insisted “it is very important that we ensure that we don’t have misinformation and many in the media have been covering this issue as if it’s, you know, a terrible plague that people have to avoid.”

Finally, Carlson details a number of Tweets from New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio that he posted in earlier in March, encouraging New Yorkers to “go out on the town despite coronavirus.”

If CNN were an honest network, they would talk about facts like these.

But of course, they aren’t an honest network, and only care about smearing President Donald Trump, even when the claims they make aren’t actually true.

Do you approve of President Trump’s response to Coronavirus?

Nancy Pelosi was shaking with rage after Devin Nunes exposed her scheme to take over the media

Devin Nunes isn’t afraid to take on the Deep State and their anti-Trump allies.

That’s why he is one of the Left’s biggest enemies.

And he just left Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage after exposing her scheme to take over the media.

It’s no secret that the mainstream media is run by the Democrat Party.

They spend every on-air moment available to smear President Donald Trump in order to try to defeat him come November.

But thankfully, more and more Americans are realizing that the mainstream media is entirely fake.

And it is people like Rep. Devin Nunes who are on the front lines exposing that fact to the American people.

In a recent interview on The Trevor Carey Show, Nunes blew the whistle on an insidious plan spearheaded by Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to further take over news outlets in order to promote her party’s agenda.

He points out that in the recently passed coronavirus stimulus plan, Democrats attempted to sneak in retirement plans for community newspaper employees.

It doesn’t take a genius to understand that this sort of move is just the first step towards creating outright government-run media outlets, which will undoubtedly support the Deep State’s anti-Trump agenda.

“If you don’t think that 90 percent of the media, including many of the local media, if you don’t think they’re working for the Democrats, you are fooling yourself,” Nunes said. “Why would they put that in there? They put that in there because they want these retirement plans, they want to socialize the news media.”

Nunes goes on to explain that this effort is simply a way to “promote their party to stay in power,” which he says is “not surprising.”

But Nunes explains how efforts like this are actually backfiring, with more and more Americans no longer trusting the media.

“I really think it was a misstep,” Nunes continued. “What they don’t understand now is that we’re approaching now half of America that when they see stuff in the fake news, they actually believe the opposite. They don’t realize that they’re having that effect.”

“It’s starting to backfire on them, not nearly fast enough,” Nunes concluded. “They’re causing panic, they’re really hurting the economy, meaning the press and their Democratic allies.”

This prime time CNN host just made one outrageous claim amid the coronavirus crisis that will leave you speechless

Published

Fake news CNN is peddling panic and hysteria in hopes of boosting their abysmal ratings.

At the same time, they are desperately trying to push a narrative they think will hurt President Trump in November.

And this prime time CNN host just made one outrageous claim amid the coronavirus that will leave you speechless.

CNN has been consistent in their messaging since the onset of the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S.

In their biased view, President Trump does not know what he is doing and is single-handedly responsible for all of the heartache, suffering, and death that has come with this pandemic.

CNN also makes sure to remind their audience that Trump acknowledging the origin of the virus – China – makes him a racist.

On Monday night, CNN prime time host Chris Cuomo responded to Trump’s daily coronavirus task force briefing, where Trump said, “Unfortunately, the enemy is death. It’s death. A lot of people are dying, so it’s very unpleasant. It’s a very unpleasant thing to go through.”

Cuomo responded, “He said the enemy is death. The enemy is not death. The enemy is disinformation, inaction, lies, division . . . These are all the things this virus is testing in our society as much as it’s testing our bodies.”

While Trump has been working to give daily updates and provide Americans with much needed facts and sobering information, Cuomo took the time to push the Fake News Media narrative forward and insinuate that Trump and his administration are the enemy of the United States.

Cuomo was partially right in one respect. The enemy is disinformation, inaction, lies, and division – but not coming from the Trump administration.

All of those things have come out of communist China’s propaganda machine amid the coronavirus and America’s Fake News Media is running with it because they hate President Trump and want to see him defeated in November.

The real enemy all along has been and still is the Fake News Media and people like Chris Cuomo who have sowed seeds of division in our country for years and worked directly to push the radical Left’s agenda on American people.

Now they’re pushing communist China’s agenda. And at what cost?
