Anderson Cooper

Opinion/Analysis: CNN’s COVID-19 panel is a joke

If you had any remaining doubt that the “progressive” left has become a party of emotions and fear rather than one of science and facts, question no further. Just consider this week’s news from our nation’s torchbearer of elite arrogance. On March 13, 2020, the Cable News Network (CNN) proudly announced that its upcoming town hall on the coronavirus pandemic will feature 17-year-old Greta Thunberg, alongside a panel of other “medical experts.” The program will be called “Coronavirus Facts and Fears,” and in addition to Greta, the panel will include Sanjay Gupta, Richard Besser and Kathleen Sebelius. Anderson Cooper will join the group as the program’s host. Now, let’s consider the credentials of this panel of “experts” who will presume to lecture all the rest of us as to how we should live our lives. Sanjay Gupta and Richard Besser are both MDs who hold terminal degrees in medicine, but Kathleen Sebelius, Anderson Cooper and Greta Thunberg do not. They have no such education and hold no such degrees. Mrs. Sebelius describes herself as “a politician” who served as the secretary of Health and Human Services under President Obama. She goes on to say that, before becoming secretary, she served as the governor of Kansas. Mrs. Sebelius takes special care to remind us that she was only the “second woman to hold that office” and that she was the “first female chair” of the Democratic Governors Association. But what of her education? Mrs. Sebelius has an undergraduate degree in political science and an MA in public administration. She has no education in medicine. She does not hold a terminal degree in anything. Her qualifications are essentially that she is female and a political hack. What about Mr. Cooper? Well, his own bio states the following. He is an “American broadcast journalist and the primary anchor of the CNN news show ‘Anderson Cooper 360.’” It goes on to say that Mr. Cooper does have an undergraduate degree but he has no advanced degrees. He has no education in medicine or science. Zero. His “expertise” includes that he’s gay, a celebrity and a Vanderbilt, i.e., he hails from one of the wealthiest families in our nation’s history. Now on to Greta. As I am sure you know, young Greta is a “Swedish activist who has gained international recognition for promoting the view that humanity is facing an existential crisis arising from climate change.” In other words, we’re all doomed. “How dare you,” she shouts as she pretends to understand things that she doesn’t understand. Greta just turned 17 and has not graduated from high school. She has no degrees in anything, let alone any in science or medicine. Her fame is that she’s a precocious scold. Stated differently, her credentials are that she knows nothing. Now, I’m the first to agree that Drs. Gupta and Besser have earned the right to be heard (However, for the sake of open debate, it might be nice to include at least one or two of the tens of thousands of MDs in the nation who disagree with them). But, why in the world should we listen to anything coming from Mrs. Sebelius, Mr. Cooper or Greta on these matters? These are the best “experts” that CNN could find? Are we really to consider these three to be our betters when it comes to the science of contagion, pandemic, virology and immunology? Stop and think about it. These are the people who call us “science deniers” while ignoring their own “science.” These are the people who deny the truth every time they stumble onto an “inconvenient truth.” The science of “global warming” proves untenable so they switch to “climate change.” The science of “born that way” proves false, so they turn to “sexual fluidity.” The science of “flattening the curve” proves insufficient, so they just move the target again..

Thanks to Dr. Everett Piper, Phd., for that brutal assessment of the upcoming special on CNN.  For more of Dr. Piper’s piece, click on the text above.  CNN is a total joke, and this upcoming so-called “townhall” is just the latest example of it.  Stop and think about it..  What possible value could Greta Thunberg, a 17-year old with ZERO medical knowledge, education, or experience possibly contribute to such a discussion?  “Save the planet?”  Gimme a break..  Same is true for Mrs. Sebelius.  The panel IS a “joke” as Dr. Piper rightly asserts.  But, it’s par for the course for CNN, which is why we RARELY (and I mean RARELY) post anything from them here at The Daily Buzz.

Conway on Anderson Cooper’s Eye-Roll: I Face Sexism Often in TV Interviews

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway reacted this morning to an interview she did Tuesday night in which CNN host Anderson Cooper noticeably rolled his eyes. Cooper had brought Conway on his show to discuss President Trump’s decision hours earlier to fire FBI Director James Comey. Conway said this morning on “Fox & Friends” she encounters sexism often when she goes on TV for interviews, recalling how Hillary Clinton’s campaign complained of facing sexism by voters. Conway asked whether Clinton or a spokesperson for a Democratic president would have ever faced such treatment. “Can you imagine rolling your eyes, having a male anchor on a network roll [his] eyes at Hillary Clinton, a female representative spokeswoman for President Obama or President Bill Clinton? I think not,” said Conway. She also reacted to reports that the White House did not have a messaging strategy ready to go when the Comey firing was announced. According to Politico, the president became “enraged” at the negative coverage and the fact that no one was defending his decision. Conway said when the president looks at “most shows,” he sees panels skewed heavily against him, sometimes by a 6-to-1 ratio. “You had people using words to describe the actions of the president himself that are just incomprehensible. And presumptive, of course, all the presumptive negativity,” she said.

Anderson Cooper is a poster child for that self-righteous, arrogant, smug, liberal elitism very prevalent in the dominantly liberal mainstream media.  We posted an article here a couple weeks ago about that “smug” attitude, and with the liberal gay crowd (like Anderson and Rachel Maddow, among others), its even worse.  Anderson is a nauseating, obnoxious, smug, liberal tool.  But because he’s gay, he probably doesn’t even realize how offensively sexist he’s being.  In his mind, it’s probably ok to act that way toward a conservative female with whom he disagrees.  But, Kellyanne is exactly right when she points out that there is NO way you’d EVER seem him or any other liberal personality on tv do that to Hillary, or anyone on the staff for Bill Clinton or Obama.  You’d NEVER see that!  But, again, because Kellyanne is conservative, and working for Trump (whom they loathe), it’s ok to be an ass like that.  CNN should suspend Anderson for his brazenly disrespectful attitude toward Kellyanne…and ALL of those self-righteous, sanctimonious women in the U.S. Senate and House should do a “march” on CNN’s DC office demaning as much.  You know they’d do it if it were one of their own.  Anyway, to see the full interview, and see a video of Anderson rolling his eyes, click on the text above.
