I think we all know, or at least we should if we’ve been paying attention, how it is that President Trump feels about CNN, the network known to many of us as the ‘Crappy News Network’. And recognizing the network as we all do, as being one of the primary purveyors of ‘fake news, the president’s opinion of both the network and those currently employed by it, should come as no surprise. But a couple of the president’s more recent Tweets concerning his rather low opinion of the network apparently struck a nerve among some of those who work there.
Because it was during Monday’s episode of CNN’s “The Lead” that host Jake Tapper criticized President Donald Trump for his recent tweets about Jake’s network. You see, it was over that last few days that the president had Tweeted, “Fox News is MUCH more important in the United States than CNN, but outside of the U.S., CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly. The outside world does not see the truth from them!” Jake apparently disagreed with that portrayal.
And then what seems to have nudged Jake a little closer to the edge was when, just a few days later, the president Tweeted, “We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me). They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!” Personally, I tend to agree with the president’s assessment of things when it comes to those who seem to take such great pleasure in spreading what they know is bogus information.
And as expected, Jake seemed to take exception to the president’s tweets saying, “That is false. The amazing journalists at CNN International bring the truth to the world. They’re carrying out important, rare and often dangerous work. They have been for decades.” Now while I mean to offense to Jake, there are few, if any, who work for this supposed ‘news’ network who can be accurately identified as being bona fide journalists. And sadly it’s nearly to a person that there is very little interest in presenting anything that is not ‘fake news.’
And it was after going on to detail developments regarding Michael Flynn that Jake continued his rant by saying, “Now, that I’m I am sharing these facts with you, facts the president does not care for might explain why he seeks to discredit CNN and all media organizations who report on him without fear or favor, “The Washington Post,” “the New York Times.” The president does not care for us reporting these facts and seems that he does not want you to believe these facts.” Let’s be real, if there are two things that do not go together, it’s CNN and ‘facts.’
Anyway, it was then that the Jakester went on to say, “The president said he wanted to give an award based on which network is the most, quote, dishonest, corrupt, and/or distorted, but his problems with journalism seem to be rooted in the exact opposite. He hates that which is honest and ethical and precise. Ask yourself, why might that be.” I guess what I found most amazing about Jake’s idiotic little tantrum was the fact that he was actually serious, and also that he was able to make it all the way through it without so much as cracking a smile.
And I gotta say, Jake truly does deserve a big pat on the back from all of his colleagues there at the old ‘fake news’ network for his effort to defend his stellar organization against that mean, old President Trump. But let’s face it, the fact that Jake was able to lie so convincingly should be seen as a little worrisome, because if he can lie that convincingly when talking about a network that truly is little more than a spewer of endless leftist propaganda, then what else might he also be lying to us about, and just as convincingly? It makes you wonder.
But look folks, this is far from being rocket science. Jake is on what has become a long list of hundreds in the state-controlled media who openly advocate for wide open borders, unlimited and illegal immigration, and for every other leftist cause that’s out there. He’s a puppet on a string willing to say exactly what Jeff Zucker pays him to say in order to protect the DC Swamp from the president. And were it not for the efforts of the media clones like Jake, to protect members of the ‘The Swamp,’ it could likely be successfully drained in a single election cycle.
And I must admit that I do find it rather humorous that a CNN talking head feel justified in lecturing me on the subject of “honesty.” That takes some weapons grade chutzpah if you ask me. Propaganda is all well and good when it’s used to harass, and to indict, Trump’s campaign staff. CNN once ruled the cable news, then they chose to pick sides, and very obviously so, by adding a significantly liberal bias to everything they did. And it was the kiss of death. Look at them now with not a single credible ‘journalist’ among them, and yet they wonder what happened.
But you know, they truly are some rather arrogant, and yet pretty ignorant people. But then, doesn’t that apply to all liberals? They’re just not the brightest bulbs in the box. And it’s President Trump, unlike most Republican presidents who have come before him, who is willing to call them out on what they report when it is nothing more than fake news. He’s the first one in a very long time who’s not afraid to push back when he gets pushed. And morons like Jake aren’t used that. Which makes them angry, which in turn makes them whine. And nobody likes a whiner.
