CNN has officially gone off the deep end, incensed by the victories of Donald Trump and the continued treasonous bumbling of Obama era politicians.
As Hurricane Donald continues to blow the roofs off of our government’s liberal holdovers, one story of corruption and collusion has risen to the top of the storm surge: Obama colleague Susan Rice’s “unmasking” of Trump staffers during the 2016 presidential election.
The unprecedented and illegal move not only provided democrats with unearned access to the inner workings of their opponent’s successful campaign, it violated the privacy of the then-citizens working for the soon-to-be elected Trump. This enormous breach of protocol and affront to basic human decency is a verifiably gargantuan story for the fledgling administration, who have been busy fending off all manner of leftist attacks, and trending news data proves that.
CNN, however, has different idea.
“CNN Tonight’s Don Lemon went so far as to announce he would ignore the news at all costs.
“While interviewing a Democratic congressman, CNN’s Chris Cuomo claimed it was ‘demonstrably untrue’ Rice sought surveillance of the Trump team, even as that’s exactly what yesterday’s reports prove.
“Over the last 24 hours, the network has also repeatedly called on its chief national security correspondent — who was also a political appointee in the Obama White House — Jim Sciutto, to dismiss the reports as a non-story; Sciutto has even excused Rice claiming ignorance of the unmasking scandal two weeks ago, arguing Rice ‘wasn’t aware’ what unmasking Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) was referring to.
“And on Tuesday’s ‘New Day,’ anchor Alisyn Camerota openly pleaded with Sen. John McCain to write-off the news as unimportant.
“Last night, Lemon began ‘CNN Tonight’ with an announcement that the Rice report a ‘fake scandal ginned up by right-wing media and Trump’ that he would not be baited into justifying with coverage.
“‘On this program tonight, we will not insult your intelligence by pretending,’ it’s legitimate, he said. ‘Nor will we aid and abet the people trying to misinform you, the American people, by creating a diversion. Not going to do it.'”
Well Don, that would be your job, were you an actual journalist working for an actual news organization.
Instead, Lemon and CNN have proven once again that their immense liberal bias and refusal to admit when they are in the wrong should exempt them from the rights given to the press. In no way does Lemon’s ignorance of this story jibe with the opinions of a majority of Americans, who have been hard at work attempting to decipher Rice’s double-speak on the subject.
When you couple Rice’s strange excuses with the mainstream media’s distortion of the situation, the American people are being hoodwinked. This is a massive story that deserves actual journalistic endeavor. If Don Lemon and CNN are unwilling or unable to provide that, they are not worthy of their place among the media “news” outlets.
