Analysis: For CNN, anyone on the left is ‘anti-hate’ — even violent masked mayhem-driving thugs

Apparently CNN thinks violent leftists can’t be “hate groups.” How else to explain the network downplaying the violent actions of Antifa, a group the Obama administration determined were perpetrators of “domestic terrorist violence?” That’s exactly what we saw with CNN’s coverage of the “Unite the Right” rally in Washington, D.C., this Sunday. About 40 white nationalists left their parents’ basements to gather in the nation’s capital on the anniversary of the deadly Charlottesville riot. This time, the racists were dramatically outnumbered by 200 violent and masked Antifa anarchists. Antifa behaved as they always have—violently. Fox News reported, “Members of Antifa were seen launching eggs, fireworks and water bottles at police officers and the Secret Service, beating people in the street and threatening members of the media…” Media covered the violence in real time on social media. There is film of the violence. Peaceful demonstrators captured the violence on cell phone video and posted attacks on the police and media for the world to see. Americans have watched for years now as Antifa has attacked members of the media, police and even innocent bystanders. The increase of violence so alarmed the Obama administration that “’Federal authorities have been warning state and local officials since early 2016 that leftist extremists known as ‘antifa’ had become increasingly confrontational and dangerous, so much so that the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence,’ according to interviews and confidential law enforcement documents,” as Politico reported in September 2016. Yet this weekend, the mask-wearing thugs – their violence well-documented for everyone to see – were actually described by CNN as an “anti-hate” group. That’s right. A CNN screen banner during coverage of the violence announced, “Anti-hate groups dramatically outnumber white supremacists in DC.” Apparently, for CNN, you can throw things at cops and attack journalists but as long as you’re on the left-wing hate-Trump end of the political spectrum that’s some A-OK anti-hate expression going on out there. This is one of the reasons Americans have lost trust in mainstream media. They aren’t asking for news with which they agree all the time, they simply want the actual news. Gallup reported in 2016 “Americans’ trust and confidence in the mass media ‘to report the news fully, accurately and fairly’ has dropped to its lowest level in Gallup polling history.” In CNN’s case, the American public see a previously respected news organization abandon its duty to report the news in order to promote the fiction that Americans are divided and President Trump is at fault. That’s the bottom line here—there is such an investment by legacy media to cast the president as a racist, and dividing the American people as a result, that even an event as clear as this had to be manipulated to fit that narrative. The actual news is this: the average American could get more people at a backyard barbeque or poker game than the racists managed to organize this weekend, even with nonstop national news coverage. And 200 violent anarchists used it as yet another opportunity to put on masks, riot, and chant slogans about evil America and capitalism. A divided America this does not make, however the media chooses to cover it. It was a pathetic gathering of irrelevant malcontents spewing hateful messages that Americans reject en masse, but desperate for the attention they knew the mainstream media would give them. For CNN, it also showed their desperation to mold it into their latest Trump-hating narrative about an America they imagine and loathe. The good news is, Americans no longer allow other people to feed them a false reality. We’re told the nation is divided by race. Yet, African-American support for the president has doubled in the last year, from 15 percent in 2017 to 29 percent now, according to Rasmussen. In a recent Harvard Harris poll, Hispanic support for the president increased 10 points. This is happening because in real life everyone’s lives are improving due to the president’s policies. But CNN needed to frame a clearly hate-filled event in a way that confirmed their fiction of racism stoked by President Trump. Here is the irony: CNN cast as “anti-hate” a group designated by the Obama administration as dangerous and violent – and they did it because they can’t see past their own hatred of Trump and anyone who voted for him.

Exactly!!  And well said, Tammy.  NY Times best-selling author, and radio talk-show host Tammy Bruce was the author of that spot-on analysis.  Excellent!!   🙂

Limbaugh: Jim Acosta’s peers upset that voters can finally stand up to ‘garbage people’ insults

Rush Limbaugh says journalists who chastise the behavior of President Trump’s supporters at rallies are really upset that Americans can respond to “garbage human” insults in 2018. The man behind the “golden EIB” microphone celebrated 30 years on air by telling listeners how much has changed over the decades. Mr. Trump’s Tuesday rally in Tampa, Florida, along with anger over the heckling of CNN’s Jim Acosta, prompted a monologue on media bias. “Let me just share with you a report here from somebody at Politico,” the conservative said. “‘Politico reporter Marc Caputo mocked attendees of President Donald Trump’s Tampa rally Tuesday night, referring to them as toothless ‘garbage people.’ After nearly 11 hours, Caputo posts an apology. ‘I need to apologize for tweeting caustic remarks after seeing a reporter berated & abused. Hate begets hate. My comments referred ONLY to those jeering and swearing at the man, not a broad swath of people. But the fault is mine for causing confusion and feeding anger.’” At issue were rally attendees who shouted “CNN sucks” while the network’s chief White House correspondent spoke with colleague Wolf Blitzer. Mr. Limbaugh essentially said that modern technology and various social media platforms allow viewers to regularly see that they are viewed with contempt by journalists. “[Trump voters are] basically a bunch of disjointed, angry people who cannot adapt to the transforming of American culture and society [to reporters],” Mr. Limbaugh said. “They are a bunch of toothless, brain-dead people sitting on the deck out in front of the shack playing the banjo as Burt Reynolds and the boys go rafting by. That’s what [reporters] think of your average Trump voter, and this guy just happened to let it out.” The radio host also asserted that Mr. Acosta “secretly and privately loves” the attention he’s getting because he goes out of his way to be adversarial with the president. “Outside of this, he’s a typical CNN no-name,” Mr. Limbaugh said. “But Trump and his administration have singled him out because Acosta decides to play rude, decides to be a provocateur. He knows Trump is gonna hit back, and I’ve maintained that Acosta loves it secretly every time it happens.” “Acosta gets to go out and play like he’s actually at war and that there are real bullets being fired and he’s risking his life to go to a Trump rally and report what’s going on there,” he continued. “What they really can’t stand is that Trump still sells out and the people there are still madly in love with and totally supportive of Trump.”

Exactly!!  And well said, Rush!  As usual, “El Rushbo” nails it with an insight that nobody else talks about.  Jim probably DOES relish the spotlight…and yet he’s such a brazen disingenuous, liberal hypocrite.  Anyway..  Congrats to Rush on his 30 year anniversary behind the “golden EIB microphone!”  We hope you’re around another 30!  “Dittos!!”   🙂

CNN’s Mudd: Trump Is a White, Rich Guy Saying ‘I Don’t Like People Coming In Who Don’t Look Like Us’

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” network counterterrorism analyst Philip Mudd reacted to President Donald Trump criticizing Europe’s immigration policies. During an interview with British tabloid The Sun, Trump said, “I think what’s happened to Europe is a shame. I think the immigration allowing the immigration to take place in Europe is a shame. I think it changed the fabric of Europe. And unless you act very quickly, it’s never going to be what it was, and I don’t mean that in a positive way. I think you’re losing your culture.” Mudd answered, “This is not about culture. This is about race. I guess if we don’t want immigration in the united states we get rid of little Italy and Irish out of Boston, Mexicans out of the Southwest and rid of Asian americans out of the west coast and my hometown which was revitalized by Cubans, they’ve got to go home too.” He continued, “The difference he’s talking about, and I see this as a white guy, it’s brown people and black people going into Europe, people from embattled states in Africa and people form the Syria conflict. If we want to talk about this straight, we shouldn’t talk about culture. We ought to talk about race. It’s a white guy who is a rich guy from Manhattan saying I don’t like people coming in who don’t look like us.”

No, you stupid tool..  That’s NOT what he said at all, you race-baiting, agenda-driven, liberal hypocrite!  He said Europe has a certain culture.  That’s true!  And, when you import in vast numbers people from other cultures, it changes that culture.  That’s simply a FACT.  Ask the poor women and young girls who were preyed upon, and raped, on New Year’s eve in Germany (Berlin, Munich, etc) by Muslim males who came from Syria and elsewhere.  Germany is the poster child of what has happened to Europe when Muslims from northern Africa and the Middle East (who aren’t even vetted) suddenly show up in large numbers.  Look at the 44% rise in homicides in London in 2017 thanks, in large part, to the same.  Trump is 100% correct in saying that mass immigration to Europe from these predominantly Muslim nations is changing the culture of Europe.  He just doesn’t give a damn about political correctness, and is the only one honest to just say it…probably knowing that self-righteous, tools like Philip will use the opportunity to play the race card.  Nice try.  Your name is Mudd.  How appropriate..  And people still wonder why Trump calls CNN, MSNBC, NBC, and others “fake news.”..

Q2 Cable News Ratings: Fox News Dominates; Far-Left CNN Sinks

Fox News again dominated for the second quarter of 2018 not only in cable news, but in all of cable, while CNN landed in last place by a country mile. For the eighth straight quarter, Fox was the most-watched network in all of cable. With an average of 1.409 million total day viewers, Fox attracted nearly as many eyeballs as MSNBC and CNN combined. MSNBC averaged just 930,000 viewers, while CNN nosedived with an average of just 658,000. During primetime, Fox snagged an average of 2.447 million viewers, compared to MSNBC’s 1.736 million. With just 929,000, the far-left CNN could not even average a million.

Wow..  Who out there actually watches CNN anymore?  Anyway, for more on this article, click on the text above.

Ex-CNN producer blasts Jim Acosta for ‘self-serving antics’

A former CNN producer took to Twitter on Friday to blast Jim Acosta, the network’s White House correspondent, for what he called Acosta’s “self-serving antics,” saying they “give all good journalists a bad name.” The posts by Steve Krakauer, a former senior digital producer for the network who is now is a top executive at Commerce House, a Dallas-based advertising firm, were prompted by a question that Acosta shouted to President Donald Trump on Friday during a White House event on the economy and tax cuts. Trump used the event as an opportunity to extend condolences to the victims and survivors of Thursday’s tragedy at the offices of the Capital Gazette, where five employees were slain by a gunman who was later taken into custody. Acosta tried to link the shooting to past criticisms that Trump had leveled toward members of the media, including calling them “the enemy of the people.” As the audience applauded at the end of the president’s speech, Acosta shouted from the back of the room: “Mr. President, will you stop calling us the enemy of the people, sir? Will you stop calling the press the enemy of the people, sir? Mr. President, will you stop calling the press the enemy of the people, sir?” The question drew no response from Trump. “Truly an embarrassment, on multiple levels,” Krakauer tweeted about Acosta’s performance. He continued in a subsequent tweet: “On a day journalists could honor the memory of fellow reporters tragically killed due to a deranged person with a vendetta going back years, Acosta tries to shift the blame to Trump,” Krakauer wrote. After the White House event, Acosta tweeted about his own performance: “I tried to ask the president if he would stop calling us the enemy of the people. He did not respond,” Acosta wrote. He added: “We also had a few folks who shushed is in the audience. Of course we are not going to be shushed.” Acosta is no stranger to controversy. Earlier in the week, the reporter drew shouts of “Go home!,” and “Fake news, Jim!” at a Trump rally in South Carolina. One rallygoer, identified as Maria Rojas, personally confronted Acosta, telling him he doesn’t respect the country.

It is beyond mind-boggling that Jim still has a job at CNN.  But, then again, it’s CNN which has no journalistic credibility.  To see that tool actually making an ass of himself, click on the text above.

CNN star Jim Acosta shamed at Trump rally as crowd chants, ‘Go home, Jim’

Supporters of President Trump angrily heckled CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta in South Carolina Monday, shouting at him to “go home” and dubbing him “fake news Jim.” Chants of “Go home, Jim!” broke out among attendees at Trump’s rally at Airport High School in West Columbia, where the president stumped for Gov. Henry McMaster in the state’s gubernatorial primary. One rallygoer, identified as Maria Rojas, personally confronted Acosta, telling him he doesn’t respect the country. “I do respect the United States, yes I do,” Acosta told the woman in videos posted by an Associated Press reporter. Rojas is seen pointing at Acosta, and swatting her arms in his direction, and shouting to “take him out” of the building. Acosta is heard saying, “I have every right to be here ma’am.” The reporter later said on CNN that “while we have had some people come up to us and be very nice this evening, I did have an elderly woman come up to me … and said that we at CNN should get the ‘f’ out of this auditorium.” “She then turned to the crowd and whipped them up into a frenzy,” Acosta said. “We are here to do our jobs and report the news and report on this rally and we’re not going anywhere.”

HAHAHA!!  Looks like he’s getting a taste of his own medicine..  How’s it feel, Jim?  What a tool..  To see a video of this event, click on the text above.    🙂

Jim Acosta ripped for wildly different coverage of Trump, Obama meetings with celeb activists

CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s reporting on celebrity activists is under fire after recent remarks about Kim Kardashian West’s Oval Office meeting with President Trump. The network’s chief White House correspondent found out on Wednesday evening that the internet never forgets. His decision to pan a prison reform meeting between Kardashian West and the commander in chief was greeted by industry colleagues who reminded him of his coverage on this same issue under former President Obama. “She shouldn’t be here, talking about prison reform, it’s very nice that she is here but that’s not a serious thing to have happened here at the White House,” Mr. Acosta said after the celebrity implored Mr. Trump to grant a pardon for Alice Marie Johnson, a great-grandmother serving a life sentence for a nonviolent drug offense. Mediaite’s Joseph Wulfsohn, Fox News, the Daily Caller, and the conservative blog Hot Air were just a few of the media outlets to revisit Mr. Acosta’s coverage of the same issue with singer John Legend. “Acosta sat down with the Grammy-winning artist and discussed his music, Black Lives Matter, and yes, prison reform, something Legend at the time was planning on meeting with Obama about,” Mediaite’s Joseph A. Wulfsohn wrote Thursday. Acosta was genuinely engaged with Legend during the interview and took him seriously not only as an entertainer but as a political thinker.” An April 24, 2015, tweet by Mr. Acosta included a picture of him with Mr. Legend that said, “After #WHCD tune in for a must see interview with the great @johnlegend who joins us this Sunday on @CNNsotu.” Fox News contributor Stephen Miller tweeted the CNN reporter with a side-by-side comparison of coverage during the Obama and Trump years but received no response. CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment when contacted by Fox.

Boy, what a shocker…lol.  Jim Acosta is the worst type of self-serving, hypocrite in the dominantly liberal mainstream media.  It’s stunning that the White House allows him to have credentials.  What a loser..
