It takes a fairly large amount of testicular fortitude to be CNN, we’ll give them that. The sheer absurdity of their behavior is truly something to behold these last few months.
Once considered a source of “news”, CNN has long eschewed that vestige in favor of the far more lucrative endeavor of entertainment. With scripted programming and well-time cliffhangers within their “unscripted” news coverage, the network has become an addictive source of light and sound for the liberal left.
The election of populist President Donald Trump was fuel to the fire for the kings of fake news, who have been showing signs of implosion for years. Now, with the Catalyst-in-Chief constantly feeding them successes to spin into sorrow, CNN has been forced to up their game in terms of salaciousness, resorting to paparazzi tactics and tabloid taboos…like sending a reporter to a citizen’s home to confront them about their support for Donald Trump.
“Not content with wall to wall coverage of the evidence-free allegation that the Trump campaign worked with shadowy Russian entities to the detriment of Hillary Clinton, the news network is now apparently stalking private citizens.
“Florine Gruen Goldfarb runs the Team Trump Broward County Facebook page, which CNN claims, ‘posted numerous times about events that were promoted and encouraged by the Russians.’
“A CNN reporter turned up to doorstep Goldfarb, repeatedly attempting to get her to acknowledge she colluded with Russians.
“Goldfarb responded by saying all the people who physically attended her meetings were Trump supporters, not Russian bots.
“’I don’t want to have anything to do with you,’ Goldfarb tells the reporter, but he continues to confront her for over a minute.”
Reactions from around the web were wildly critical of CNN, whose antics have been described as “doxxing” – the internet-age practice of digging for the personal information of an opposing figure and using that information to harass or harm them.
This is yet another example of the mainstream media’s descent into sheer madness in the face of a citizen-President. Trump was supposed to fail. That was the narrative CNN was banking on, and without it, they are a loss for words. Their desperate acts are just now exposing the weakness of the organization, with poor Florine Goldfarb being forced to act as a partial martyr to the cause.
