For 20 years the right wing propaganda machine, aided by divisive radio broadcasts from Limbaugh, Ingraham, and more recently Jones, have made vile and unethical attacks against a real President, Barrack Obama, public servant Hillary Clinton, and others. All of these attacks were proven false, but not a single repercussion was taken by any of the networks.
When one of the best newsmen of our time made a mistake on NBC, he was removed from his nightly broadcast. Brian Williams was maligned by his own network which refused to support what appeared to be an honest mistake. During the same time period, FOX Noise’ most popular fake-journalist, Bill O’Reilly was exposed for fictionalizing his journalistic accomplishments. He remained on air and no punishment was administered. There is a double standard in the media for those who support Democrats and those who hide the truth to protect the right wing.
CNN is unfit to be called a ‘news agency.’ They refuse to attack Trump and his circle of sinners with all of their journalistic power, and bow to them when they claim ‘foul.’
I will admit that I considered it bad taste when comedian Kathy Griffin held up a mock bloody head of Donald Trump, but it was not as offensive as it might have been had I received the same opportunity. I love my country and despise the worst president in American history. CNN decided to fire her and eliminate all future broadcasts.
Today CNN fired Reza Aslan.
When Trump misrepresented the most recent terrorist attacks in London and denounced all Muslims once again, Aslan could not control his anger at Trump’s ignorance.
“The president is a man baby that must be ignored in times of crisis,” Aslan tweeted.
He did not end his valid criticism of Trump.
“This piece of s— is not just an embarrassment to American and a stain on the presidency. He’s an embarrassment to humankind.”
Aslan later apologized for using an expletive, but CNN bowed to the Trump administration and fired him.
My advice is to never watch CNN again. It is not a member of the fourth estate, and will succumb to the most immoral and unfit president ever to soil the sheets in the White House.
Any fake-news agency which supports Trump is acting in an immoral and anti-American manner. CNN was once a respectable news information network, but has lost all respect from myself and others who promise to offer the truth without restriction.
My one hope is that Anderson Cooper and Jake Tapper will accept offers from other news agencies and leave CNN. There is no room for cowardice in today’s political environment. Democracy is in danger, and the first amendment is under attack by your illegitimate president.
America’s future is in danger of receiving an expiration date. We, the American people must fight for our nation. Profit before people is encouraging the end of the fourth estate as the singular entity which once offered the truth about our nation’s government to the American people capitulates to ‘political correctness.
Boycott CNN, FOX Noise, and other fake-news networks which refuse to support the truth and the American people; that includes ABC, CBS, and NBC.
Please re-post; thank you.
