Student Claims CNN Rewrote Town Hall Question, Told Him to ‘Stick to the Script’

A Florida student claims that CNN rewrote his question for the network’s Wednesday night town hall debate on gun violence. Colton Haab, a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 17 people were shot and killed last week, says he did not attend the event when he realized it would be a “total waste of [his] time.” CNN denies that it scripted questions for any of the participants at the town hall, which was attended by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch. On “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Thursday, Haab said he was contacted several days ago by a CNN producer who asked him to write a speech to deliver at the event, in addition to questions to ask. He said after some back and forth, he was eventually provided with a question that was not his own words. “They had taken what I had wrote and what I had briefed on and talked about, and they actually wrote the question for me,” Haab said, agreeing with Carlson that it seemed “dishonest.” He said that’s why he decided not to attend the town hall. “Originally, I had thought that it was going to be more of my own question and my own say. And then it turned out to be more of just a script,” Haab said. “And [the producer] had actually said that over the phone, that I needed to stick to the script.” When Carlson asked if he believes other students’ town hall questions were reworded, Haab said “absolutely.” “Honestly, it was very shocking to me, because we just went through such a horrific tragedy,” Haab said. “For them to take that and make such a big newscast over what they want to hear, it was very upsetting to me.”

CNN slammed for glowing puff piece about Kim Jong Un’s sister at Olympics

CNN is getting dragged online for writing a glowing puff piece about North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s sister appearing at the Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea — with a headline claiming she was “stealing the show.” The article, published Saturday afternoon, began with these cooing words about the woman who gave South Korean President Moon Jae-in an invite to visit North Korea: “If ‘diplomatic dance’ were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un’s younger sister would be favored to win gold. With a smile, a handshake and a warm message in South Korea’s presidential guest book, Kim Yo Jong has struck a chord with the public just one day into the PyeongChang Games.” It barely referenced the North Korean regime’s murderous ways — and critics called out CNN for it. Still, despite the almost-immediate backlash from people on both sides of the political aisle, CNN has not taken down its story. When Fox News reached out for comment, CNN would not say whether it would remove the story or discipline any editors over the controversial article. CNN anchor Chris Cuomo defended his left-leaning network by throwing in a dig at President Donald Trump. He tweeted to one reader, “You don’t think having a President who lies about what is ‘fake’ and actively maligns the free press out of convenience is a bigger reason for animosity toward us than how some decide to cover this?” He also bashed a Reuters story on Kim Yo Jong, writing, “This is a murderous regime that is stifling a population. Progress has to be evidenced by a lot more than this no?” Jonathan Chait, writer for New York magazine, mockingly cheered the CNN piece: “Also stealing her country’s meager wealth to live in opulence while they starve. But doing it in style. You go, girl!” Conservative commentator Michelle Malkin chimed in, tweeting: “Next up: An EXCLUSIVE @CNN investigative report on Kim Jong Un’s sister’s workout playlist, favorite boba tea flavors, and nighttime skin care routine. #SLAYGIRLFRIEND” Fox News’ Brit Hume tweeted: “Does this puff piece mean she’s gotten over her dictator brother’s murder of her other brother?” Speaking for the millennial audience, David Mack of BuzzFeed tweeted: “yasss kweeen! werk it as you oppress your people! gettttt that crime against humanity, gurlllll!” The CNN piece did mention at one point that Kim Yo Jong’s brother, the North Korean Supreme Leader, “has ruled with an iron fist since coming to power,” running prison camps and killing senior officers to preserve his power. The article did not mention the reign of terror brought about by their father, Kim Jong Il.

CNN claim that an unmonitored asteroid could slam into earth during government shutdown is debunked

Sadly, this is CNN. CNN personalities already blame virtually everything on President Trump and now the network has floated a theory that the earth could be jeopardized by an asteroid because of the government shutdown — but don’t worry, experts have already dubunked the fake news. CNN correspondent Tom Foreman said on “The Lead with Jake Tapper” that NASA could potentially stop monitoring asteroids during the shutdown. “A big one, by the way, is expected to brush by Earth on February 4,” Foreman said on Friday’s show. He explained that this occurred back in 2013 during the Obama administration when the government last shut down. “For more than two weeks, NASA reportedly stopped monitoring potentially dangerous asteroids,” he said. Foreman might not be the best when it comes to measuring things, as he said the anticipated asteroid will “brush by earth,” but it will actually be roughly 2.6 million miles away, according to “NASA representatives say there’s no chance that it will collide with Earth,” reported. Center for Near-Earth-Object Studies at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory Paul Chodas told the site, which bills itself as “the premier source of space exploration, innovation and astronomy news,” that the asteroid CNN hyped “has no chance — zero — of colliding with Earth on Feb. 4 or any time over the next 100 years.”

CNN has really become a laughing stock.  It’s almost as bad as MSNBC; utter garbage and fake news.

President Trump reveals winners of his ‘Fake News’ awards

President Trump revealed the winners of his self-proclaimed ‘Fake News’ awards Wednesday night on Twitter — with The New York Times topping the list. CNN also came out as a “winner,” with the left-leaning news network making the list four times. The list, published on, noted that “studies have shown that over 90 percent of the media’s coverage of President Trump is negative.” It went on to call 2017 “a year of unrelenting bias, unfair news coverage and even downright fake news.” Coming in first place was The New York Times’ Paul Krugman for his prediction that the stock markets would never recover from Trump’s election. In a bit of irony, the Dow Jones industrial average closed above 26,000 for the first time on Wednesday. The Times was followed by ABC News’ Brian Ross for his botched report that Trump advised former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to make contact with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign. The list pointed to a false CNN report that Trump had early access to “hacked documents” from WikiLeaks, a video that suggested Trump overfed fish in a visit with the Japanese prime minister and a report that former FBI Director James Comey would deny saying Trump was told he was not under investigation. The Times appeared on the list again for a false report that the Trump administration hid a report on climate change. Newsweek sent out a tweet Wednesday evening acknowledging its “award.” The final “winner” on the list, as Trump described it: “And last, but not least: ‘RUSSIA COLLUSION!’ Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!” The website carrying the results of the “Fake News Awards” crashed because it was flooded with visitors after Trump tweeted out the link. Without naming anyone, Trump also tweeted out his praise for the “many great reporters.” He continued, “Despite some very corrupt and dishonest media coverage, there are many great reporters I respect and lots of GOOD NEWS for the American people to be proud of!” Click here to see the full list of winners of the 2017 Fake News Awards.

This is so great!!!  President Trump calls out these glaring, factual errors by the dominantly liberal mainstream media.  There is NO question that they are clearly guilty of not only anti-Trump bias.  That’s a given.  But, they create fake news.  If you’ve not seen that list yet, click on the text above.  Excellent!!   🙂

CNN doctor Sanjay Gupta claims Trump has heart disease

CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta disputed President Trump’s clean bill of health this week, claiming that the numbers actually suggest the president has heart disease. “The president has heart disease,” the neurosurgeon, who has never examined Mr. Trump, declared on “New Day” Wednesday, adding that the president needs a medical plan to prevent a major heart problem in the near future. Dr. Gupta said the presence of calcium in Mr. Trump’s blood vessels has greatly increased since 2009, and that the coronary calcium score released by the White House on Tuesday indicated that the president had already well surpassed the threshold for having heart disease and being at risk for a heart attack. Dr. Ronny L. Jackson, a rear admiral in the Navy and a longtime White House physician, determined during Mr. Trump’s first medical exam in office that the 71-year-old president is in excellent physical and cognitive health. During a nearly hourlong press briefing Tuesday, Dr. Jackson said the president does not have heart disease. “No, he does not have heart disease,” he told Dr. Gupta at the briefing, the Washington Examiner reported. “I think he had great findings across the board, but the one that stands out more than anything to me is his cardiac health. His cardiac health is excellent.” Speaking on CNN, Dr. Gupta pushed back against Dr. Jackson’s claims. “They’re going to be increasing the medications, including the cholesterol-lowering medications to try and combat that, but there’s no question, by all standards, by all metrics, anyway a doctor or cardiologist will look at it, the president does have heart disease,” Dr. Gupta said, The Hill reported. A White House official told the Washington Examiner that it had nothing to add to Dr. Jackson’s statements. “The question was asked and answered very clearly. Perhaps Dr. Gupta should take the cognitive exam?” the official said. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during a press briefing Wednesday that Dr. Jackson is “the only credible source when it comes to diagnosing any health concerns” of the president.

And, Dr. Jackson, who actually performed a physical examination of Pres. Trump, was the personal physician for Presidents Bush (43) and Obama.  He is a non-political medical doctor, and Navy admiral with impeccable credentials…and again, ACTUALLY evaluated the President.  By extreme contrast, Dr. Gupta is a former Hillary Clinton adviser, and was on Obama’s short list to be a Surgeon General (essentially a political appointment), and has never examined the President.  You be the judge of who is probably more correct, and who is just a political hack creating fake news to further CNN’s anti-Trump agenda.  To read more about Dr. Jackson’s evaluation of President Trump, scroll down about 4 articles.

Starnes: CNN is a race-baiting, anti-Trump network

Leave it to the mainstream media to concoct some sort of wild-eyed theory that President Trump’s promise to say “Merry Christmas” is some sort of coded language for white nationalism and white supremacy. CNN host Don Lemon was among the most high-profile mainstream media minions to advance the race-baiting narrative. “This is a dog whistle to the base because no one has ever stopped using Merry Christmas,” the Clinton News Network host said during a Dec. 21 broadcast. In reality, the entire CNN network is a dog whistle for race-baiting, anti-Trump, America-bashing pinheads. And I said as much on Tuesday’s edition of “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel. But CNN is not the only mainstream media outlet to get its tinsel in a twist over the president’s frequent use of the words, “Merry Christmas.” Consider this headline from Newsweek: “How Trump and the Nazis Stole Christmas to Promote White Nationalism.” At first glance, I just assumed one of the copy editors had slurped a bit too much egg nog. But it turns out, Newsweek was dead serious. “Trump has been using the so-called war on Christmas to wage a culture war that pits multicultural liberals against Christian conservatives. He began doing this long before Christmas. Meanwhile, some members of the religious right support Trump’s most nationalist, race-baiting form of political rhetoric, including his reclaiming of Christmas,” Newsweek declared. Newsweek moaned about how the president is “promoting a version of the holidays that excludes members of other religions, and that his crusade to bring back Christmas is part of a larger attempt by the president to define America as a country for white Christians alone.” Apparently Newsweek is unaware that many African-Americans and Asian-Americans and Hispanic-Americas celebrate the Christmas season, too. “Wishing people merry Christmas’ instead of ‘happy holidays’ is thus in line with Trump’s decision to ban citizens of Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States, critics say. It fits neatly with his refusal to condemn white supremacists when they march against diversity, and with his condemnation of athletes who protest police brutality against black men,” the magazine noted. Far be it from me to offer psychological advice, but it sounds to me like Newsweek is a few nuts shy of a fruitcake. However, the mainstream media holds fast to its belief that Christmas is supposed to be some sort of all-inclusive, one-ornament-fits-all, religiously-neutral holiday. And yet they don’t seem to have a problem with the exclusivity of other religious holidays — like Ramadan. Why don’t we hear Don Lemon demanding that Muslim holidays be inclusive? I believe I know the answer. It’s because the attacks on President Trump and Christmas have nothing to do with inclusivity. It’s about marginalizing people of faith and silencing Christianity in the public square. In fairness to CNN and Newsweek, President Trump is sending the nation a coded-message. He’s telling us that it’s OK to say “Merry Christmas.” He’s telling us that he understands and recognizes the reason for the season. And in spite of what Don Lemon or CNN or Newsweek says, Christmas will always be an exclusively Christian holiday — a moment for us to celebrate the birth of the newborn King.

Exactly!!  And that’s what has the dominantly liberal mainstream media going ballistic!  For the past 8 years, they’ve had free reign to make fun of, and look down on Christians.  It’s really been the only form of politically correct bigotry allowed anymore.  Then along comes Donald Trump who stuffs it back in their face.  Kudos to veteran culture warrior Todd Starnes for that outstanding, and timely, piece.  CNN and Newsweek are gargage.  Thanks for reminding us, Todd!  Excellent!!    🙂

Opinion/Analysis: Jake Tapper, CNN’s finest, defends ‘Allahu akbar’ as ‘beautiful’

Jake Tapper, of CNN fame, spoke in the aftermath of the terror attack in New York City by saying — get this — that the phrase “Allahu akbar,” reportedly uttered by the suspected terrorist, is actually a phrase of beauty, in the right circumstances. Yes — and, in that vein, so was Heil Hitler, depending on the source and context of the utterance. But this is how the media rolls. When Islam meets terror, and Allah’s at the root, count on the mainstream, lamestream of the media world to find any which way possible to dig up a defense. Breitbart picked up the televised exchange, between Tapper and CNN’s crime and justice reporter, Shimon Prokupecz. It went like this: “Tapper: Shimon’s got some breaking news on this “horrific incident.” Shimon: “That’s right Jake. So what we’re told, I’m told by three sources now that the NYPD and the FBI are investigating this as a terrorism incident. Our understanding is that, according to witnesses … they’re telling police that they heard the driver saying, yelling, ‘Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar,’ during this incident.” And Tapper’s response? “The Arabic chant, Allahu Akbar, God is great, sometimes is said under the most beautiful of circumstance and too often, we hear it being said in moments like this,” he said. Oh please, make it stop. It’s bad enough the leftists of the country can’t take even the most mundane and common sense of national security protections to stave off radical Islam terror attacks — like clamping the borders, for example. But now we’ve got to listen to tripe like Tapper‘s, that uses a terror attack — a terror attack committed by an Islamic believer in the messaging and violent means of ISIS — to propel a politically correct view of the phrase “Allahu akbar?” Sorry, Tapper. Allahu akbar is what it is. And what it is, at least in the minds of Americans wearied by Islamic-tied terror, is a rally call to violence. Calling it beautiful, especially in context of discussing the latest terror hit on American soil, is indicative of a mind blinded by political correctness, disconnected with reality — and even, sadly, a heart that’s apathetic and callous toward the innocent victims of the “Allahu akbar” terrorists.

Jake Tapper is an out-of-touch liberal that really has no clue just how breathtakingly stupid he is.  Jake doesn’t get just how offensive his idiocy really is to those who have been the victims of these lunatic, evil, Islamo-fascists.  There is NOTHING whatsoever that is “beautiful” about Allhu Akbar when its being yelled by these Islamic terrorists.  NOTHING.  It boggles the mind that there are actually people who watch this moron.  Thanks to Cheryl K. Chumley for bringing this eye-rolling story to our attention..
