CNN is going through a rough patch.
The network has no idea what to do with itself now that Donald Trump is out of office.
And The Washington Post just wrote the most absurd thing ever about CNN.
The Washington Post’s Jeremy Barr published a puff piece on CNN praising the network for shedding its reputation for straight news and diving head first into becoming an anti-Trump propaganda channel.
That’s to be expected.
Left-wing activists in the media often cover for one another.
What set off howls of laughter was The Washington Post promoting the story on social media claiming network President Jeff Zucker directing CNN to become a pro-Democrat Party outlet had no effect on ratings.
Under network president Jeff Zucker, CNN’s once studiously neutral team now call out politicians, share their feelings and occasionally cry on air. It doesn’t seem to hurt ratings. https://t.co/RCTBBnyxV3

That may have been true before Donald Trump.
When Trump was in office, Americans were addicted to cable news and CNN set record ratings.
But since Trump left office, CNN’s lost two thirds of their audience.
Recently, not one CNN primetime show drew in more than 800,000 viewers, which was a sharp fall from January’s average of 2.74 million.
Critics contend that CNN turning into a full-fledged anti-Trump channel may have been good in the short term as it provided Trump haters on the Left a safe space to consume their news, but that in the long term it alienated the millions of Americans who just want the news and not bias or political slant.
These facts were all available to Barr and The Washington Post when this tweet was posted.
Critic contend it was ignored because like CNN – The Washington Post is in the narrative business – and the narrative they want to push is that anti-Trump propaganda is actually news and there is a wide audience for journalists shedding the mask of objectivity and showing their true colors as political activists.

The Washington Post tried to bully companies with one enraging tactic
Donald Trump woke up tens of millions of Americans.
He showed them that the press is simply an extension of the Democratic Party.
And The Washington Post tried to bully companies with one enraging tactic.
Many reporters for corporate press outlets are not journalists, but activists.
They believe their goal is to bring about social change, i.e. promote left-wing causes.
The New York Times essentially said as much after the election of Donald Trump in 2016.
That naked partisanship in the media has only intensified.
And it was taken up another notch after the Supreme Court leak of a draft opinion from Justice Samuel Alito that signaled the reversal of the horribly decided Roe V. Wade case.
Democrats have been screeching and wailing about abortion, and they have deployed their foot soldiers in the media to get active.
Now, video game reporters for The Washington Post are pressuring gaming companies to comment publicly on the abortion debate.
Post video game beat reporters Nathan Grayson and Shannon Liao wrote a piece entitled: “As Roe v. Wade repeal looms, video game industry stays mostly silent.”
The reporters essentially called up video game companies in hopes of coercing them to give rhetorical or financial support to the Democrats’ pro-abortion cause.
When Grayson was called out on Twitter for his absurd column, he responded that “game companies were extremely vocal following george floyd’s murder, covid-born anti-asian hate, etc. silence here is telling; it suggests broader disingenuousness.”
people are suddenly losing their minds over this piece (lol), so let me spell out the rationale behind it:

Grayson is just now learning that major corporations often virtue-signal when it’s easy for them to do so.
But that isn’t the case with the abortion issue.
Abortion is incredibly divisive with national support split roughly right down the middle.
Also, the pro-life side gains majority support after the first trimester.
According to polling data, 65% of Americans are against second-trimester abortions, and 81% are against third-trimester abortions.
The current position of the Democrats is government-funded abortions on-demand up until the point of birth.
That is wildly outside of the mainstream.
Video game companies are not in a rush to jump on that grenade, especially in light of Disney getting smacked by Ron DeSantis and Florida Republicans for jumping into politics.
Even if the companies were completely sincere, as Grayson has perhaps imagined, there is zero reason to believe they would always side with the Left.
The CEO of a video game company can donate to causes related to George Floyd while also being against abortion.
This is why it never pays for companies to pander to the Left.
The demands will never stop.
Taylor Lorenz got caught in a lie that blew up in her face
Washington Post reporter Taylor Lorenz is endeavoring to be the worst person in journalism.
She routinely releases people’s private information while playing the victim when others do it to her.
Now, Lorenz got caught in a lie that blew up in her face.
Taylor Lorenz’s attempt to destroy a Twitter account called Libs of Tik Tok went up in smoke.
Lorenz doxxed the woman who runs the account and even showed up to her house.
She committed thousands of words to a Washington Post hit piece against Libs of Tik Tok because the account is so effective at shining a light on the insanity of the Left.
But the stunt backfired; Libs of Tik Tok has nearly doubled her follower account from 648,000 to 1.2 million in two weeks.
Now, Lorenz is back in the news again for hurling accusations at a different media-related figure.
Lorenz accused a reporter for The Drudge Report of harassment, then said she was joking when it turned out she was wrong.
Lorenz got in a back-and-forth with Oliver Darcy of CNN of all people.
Darcy wrote in a blog post that, “Taylor Lorenz walked back an allegation on Monday that an editor for the Drudge Report had repeatedly harassed her after she was contacted by Matt Drudge himself. Lorenz tweeted Monday that she had been ‘relentlessly’ harassed by a Drudge Report editor who had threatened to use the site to destroy her career. It was a serious allegation and so I checked in with Drudge who told me that he had ‘never contacted her, nor has anyone associated with the DRUDGE REPORT.’ Drudge, who made clear to me he was not pleased with the allegations against his site, forwarded me an email he had sent Lorenz asking for a correction.”
However, Drudge contradicted Lorenz who said she had spoken to him.
Lorenz wrote, “For anyone who saw my post abt this man claiming to be from Drudge calling me non stop, good news: I heard from Matt Drudge & this man has zero power over Drudge! He’s claiming to be an editor all over the internet but he’s not. Sorry to disappoint everyone saying Drudge is based.”
After the lie blew up in her face, Lorenz claimed it was a “joke.”
She then took a dig at Darcy and Drudge on Twitter, “Lol I didn’t even know Drudge Report was even still around. I still think someone claiming to ruin my career on the Drudge Report is objectively hilarious! I know you’re thirsty for media news, maybe u can report on someone claiming to destroy me on Geocities next.”

Lorenz is the poster child for privileged progressives who pretend to be the victim.
The Left is training generations to believe that victimhood is the highest form of virtue, and reporters like Lorenz are the result.
Psychotic Washington Post reporter is attempting to destroy one left-wing critic
Democrats have given up on attempting to win the argument.
Instead, they just slander and silence people who challenge their narrative.
And a psychotic Washington Post reporter is attempting to destroy one left-wing critic.
Washington Post hatchetwoman Taylor Lorenz has scraped together a career in journalism by doxxing and exposing people to online harassment for expressing views she does not like.
She has done it many times, then cried crocodile tears when it happened to her.
Lorenz is back at it again, this time doxxing the woman who runs the Twitter account Libs of Tik Tok.
Lorenz thought it was newsworthy to expose the name of the woman, and harass her family members.
The “crime” committed by Libs of Tik Tok was posting public videos of unhinged leftists talking about themselves and their insane ideas.
It turns out that the Left hate it when people hold a mirror up to their faces.

But this is truly bad in the eyes of Lorenz and other members of the Left.
People are not supposed to see the insane things liberals say in public spaces.
Lorenz wrote, “The anonymous account’s impact is deep and far-reaching. Its content is amplified by high-profile media figures, politicians and right-wing influencers. Its tweets reach millions, with influence spreading far beyond its more than 648,000 Twitter followers. Libs of TikTok has become an agenda-setter in right-wing online discourse, and the content it surfaces shows a direct correlation with the recent push in legislation and rhetoric directly targeting the LGBTQ+ community.”
Her complaint is essentially that Libs of Tik Tok is effective in exposing the lunacy of the Left.
And the account does not target the LGBTQ+ community; it targets people that parrot insane talking points like men can get pregnant, i.e. the Left.
Lorenz’s hit piece appears to have backfired.
In under one day, Libs of Tik Tok went from 648,000 followers to over 800,000.
It turns out that there are a lot of people who are fed up with the fringe radicals.
