During the 1990s, CNN became known as the “Clinton News Network.” This was due to the fact that the producers of the 24-hour news channel appeared to be in the tank for Bill Clinton.
No matter what scandal broke, CNN would never ask then President Bill Clinton difficult questions. In fact, many of their commentators and producers gave him a pass, often making excuses for his poor decisions and bad behavior.
After Bill Clinton left office, many jokingly called the station the “Communist News Network” due to its left wing leanings. Conservatives were blasted daily by the anchors and commentators while liberal Democrats were painted as the saviors of the world.
We all knew this to be true, but in all honesty, we had no proof of the bias we knew existed.
But that all changed during the recent election cycle as CNN was once again labeled the “Clinton News Network.”
But with Hillary Clinton’s stunning defeat at the hands of political outsider Donald Trump, I want to propose a new acrostic for CNN — the “Compromised News Network.”
Prior to this election cycle, conservatives, Tea Party loyalists, and Republicans — anyone who didn’t march in lockstep with the DNC Gestapo — knew CNN leaned to the far left. And now we have the proof!
Proof Number 1. Donna Brazile, the interim head of the DNC, received questions before two primary debates and passed them along to the Clinton Campaign.
This revelation was huge because it shows that CNN was in the tank for Hillary wanting her to win the primary.
Brazile’s contracted with CNN was later suspended when she became acting chair of the DNC, but the favors for and desire to see Clinton win the general election didn’t cease.
Politico reported, “A CNN employee, speaking on background, suggested Brazile may have met the woman who was supposed to pose the question about lead poisoning during a service event planned the day before the debate. As for the town hall event, a follow-up email from Brazile posted by WikiLeaks on Monday and other emails obtained by POLITICO seem to point to [CNN contributor] Roland Martin, a TV One host who was co-moderating the Town Hall, as the source of the questions.”
Not wanting to damage the image of the dishonest DNC, who, already had one chairperson fired in disgrace over the summer, the Compromised News Network allowed Donna Brazile to resign.
Proof Number 2. The never biased fair-minded Wolf Blitzer (<– tongue firmly planted in cheek) also appears to be “compromised.”
The DNC was asked by someone at CNN to submit questions to be asked by Blitzer to then primary hopefuls Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.
How do we know this? Emails obtained by WikiLeaks from DNC research director Lauren Dillon explaining that CNN had contacted them (let that sink in), looking for questions to ask Trump and Cruz during the Republican interviews on the network.
Daily Reporter writer Chuck Ross explains, “[A] group of DNC staffers submitted numerous questions for Blitzer to ask of the real estate billionaire. But the interview ended up being cancelled, Dillon informed the DNC staff in a follow-up email.”
“‘CNN said the interview was cancelled as of now but will keep the questions for the next one 🙁 Good to have for others as well,’ Dillon wrote.”’
“‘Boo,’ DNC deputy communications director Christina Freundlich responded.”
These recent revelations are just two examples which have come to light. Any rational thinking person knows there are more, but they may never be discovered.
My advice to Donald Trump? Don’t give a single interview to the “Compromised News Network” during the next four years. Do not allow any current White House staffer to go on CNN. Do not call on CNN during a press conference, and regulate them to the back row of White House briefing room. Why?
Because CNN, the Compromised News Network, has proven that it is not a real news outlet. It is a propaganda machine!
