Indeed, June 1993 was a very long time ago. It was also the last time weekend ratings for CNN’s Saturday programming were as low as they were this year, and keep in mind that neither MSNBC nor Fox News were even in existence at that time. Also, note that those ratings include the viewership for CNN’s incomparable Brian Stelter… couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy.
While CNN was seeing strong ratings during the Trump Era, they were also lifting their skirt. CNN showed America and the world their true character: They were/are nothing but political activists with a far-left agenda. They fed their mind-numb, ignorant viewers a steady diet of ‘Trump is a Russian puppet’ for three years. Their minions nodded their heads, and CNN thought that were kicking ass. But in reality, they were absolutely destroying their reputation.
No, the reason why CNN and others are starting to report accurately on the dumpster fire known as the Biden Administration is not that they’ve seen the light and are now practicing journalistic integrity, it’s because they see the writing on the wall. They recognize that their cronies in government are going to lose power if they keep their wagon hitched to Biden.
Paging Politico: here is Ron DeSantis addressing the question of insurance at a public event this week. The issues Governor DeSantis has tackled range from tax relief to education to cancer research. Finding Ron DeSantis doing his job as a Governor is very easy even for a private citizen like myself. So, to paraphrase Brian Stelter, “with major newsrooms and desks and operations that work hard on verifying information,” the only reason that Politico wasn’t able to track Ron DeSantis is they were not trying very hard.
No serious Republican has endorsed this extreme racist French theory” that there is a Jewish plot to “replace” white Americans with Muslims and Africans (racist because it involves Jewish plots and refers to specific races and religions). Republican objections to the Democrat plan would be exactly the same if Democrats were importing blonde-haired blue-eyed yodeling Scandinavians to shift the US electorate to the Left.
Democrats have a history of politicizing horrific events like the one in Buffalo. They’re actively calling for restrictions on the first amendment, which essentially means they will determine what language best suits their political goals. So who is going to make this determination? Joe Biden’s Orwellian Disinformation Board? God help us all.
When you are in a knife fight in a back alley with a thug and you punch back after he has punched you, it would not be accurate for a “journalist” covering the fight to say that you are “contributing” to the fight, that is, making things worse by fighting back (not, of course, unless you are a Republican and the thug is a Democrat). Kayleigh’s point was that by identifying the culture war Trump was not making it worse.
So, why was Todd sent packing to the minor leagues? What did he do that was so egregious? Todd’s problem was his ratings. CNN and MSNBC are committed to leftist programming to a level that borders on religiousness, and Chuck Todd is one of their top preachers. But ultimately, networks need to make money, and when no one is watching your programs, change is inevitable.
Now, I don’t care about Kilmeade or his historical inaccuracies and resulting histrionics that would have made good B movie children’s fare in the 1950s. He is only one of many who cheat or are simply ignorant, at a historical presentation by omitting basic facts or not knowing them in the first place. And though Kilmeade is primarily a sports contributor and humorist he is hardly schooled in history.
According to reports of the court proceedings, Buck was fond of “meth-fueled sexual encounters” with men with whom he would provide temporary housing and/or monetary compensation. He would offer the drugs to the individuals and once intoxicated, inject them with excessive doses. Once his victims were sufficiently intoxicated or unconscious, he would act out his fetishes and perform various sex acts on them.
A buzz throughout the industry began to circulate last month that things had become so bad, with subscriptions to the premium service coming in far below their overly optimistic expectations, that extensive layoffs at CNN+ were imminent. And there’s no doubt that these failures are the driving force behind the apparent seller’s regret that Wallace himself is now experiencing.
And adding one smarmy guy from Fox News (Chris Wallace), who most loyal CNN viewers wrongly think is a “Republican bad guy,” isn’t going to boost your broken brand. Also, there aren’t enough Fox viewers who “love” Chris Wallace and are willing to follow him to CNN to make a dent in their subscriptions. I’d be shocked if there were 5 of those people on planet earth.
In Schiavo’s case, criminal proceedings may yet ensue. According to NewsMax.com, Florida’s Department of Children and Families had received 89 allegations that Schiavo had abused his wife – but Judge Greer (surprise!) ruled that DCF summaries of those allegations must remain secret to everyone except (surprise!) Michael Schiavo himself. However, The St. Petersburg Times and the Tampa Tribune have now filed lawsuits for the release of the abuse summaries.
Leonardo DiCaprio is still yapping about global warming – or is it climate change this week, I forget. He’s demanding that we give up our cars and freeze to death in the winter to save the planet that he promised would perish 20 years ago. It’s a slap to our face every time he boards a private jet to attend an environmental conference in Switzerland.
CNN and MSNBC have reportedly both traveled to Washington, DC, in recent weeks to pitch Psaki on leaving the impossible job of defending Joe Biden’s failing presidency towards a lucrative job with their news organizations. With ratings plummeting at both networks, the discussions have probably included offers for Psaki to assume a prominent role in their schedules hoping she would quickly boost their rating and become the next star in network news.
Perhaps by the “Big Lie” CNN means the lie by the Biden administration that single male illegal immigrants are being turned away at the border that was exposed when bodycam footage acquired through a Freedom of Information Act request “shows federal contractors dropping off migrants at the Westchester County Airport in White Plains, N.Y., last summer, with one contractor on the scene saying the Biden administration was ‘betraying the American people.’”
During the Gulf War in 1991, CNN shined like no other news network before. Their access to official military footage, embedded reporters, and around-the-clock coverage of the conflict reset the standard for war reporting, and we all tuned into the network to watch America kick the crap out of Saddam Hussein. It was at this time that CNN’s slogan of “The most trusted name in news” might have been accurate. But not anymore.

In the case of Jussie Smollett, the saga that has evolved this last year has been more of a comedy than the drama Smollett had written and acted out. Every facet of this case proved the hoax that Smollett attempted to perpetrate on the American public. In an almost smug disregard for the truth and the common sense of everyone familiar with the case, he insisted on defending his innocence.
