Just when you thought the mainstream media couldn’t sink any lower – here comes CNN.
They’ve just been stepping in one giant pile of sh** after another, haven’t they?
It’s not bad enough that they ran with a total hoax and called it “news.” No, they manage to sink even lower with every passing day and now, the American public puts them DEAD LAST among major news outlets in terms of trust and reliability.
But their latest stunt might be the worst yet. And it strikes me as something that would have been received with complete outrage by the left if, say, Fox News did it. I mean, talk about outrage…
During one of its most recent broadcasts, the CNN talking heads discussed a scenario that was so far out in left field, so unrelated to any REAL current or breaking news event, that one would have to assume the network was taking a wishful thinking fishing trip.
As Breitbart reported:
“As the nation prepares for the peaceful transfer of power on Inauguration Day, CNN is dreaming up scenarios whereby the Obama administration can keep power if President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence were blown up as they prepared to take to oath of office.”
That’s right; CNN’s big news of the evening of January 18 was a discussion between Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer and correspondent Brian Todd about what would happen if Trump, during his inauguration, were somehow killed.
Just LOOK at this crap:
And then they went on down the line, imagining a killed-off Pence and so forth, until finally, the natural consequence was to put a Democrat in charge. Namely, they discussed the possibility of Secretary of State John Kerry taking over, or perhaps President Obama’s undersecretary for political affairs, Tom Shannon.
But can you imagine the expressions of shock and anger that would come from the left if a network did this during Obama’s two swearing-in ceremonies? There’d be riots in the streets!
The left’s first reaction would be to sling the R-word, racist, as far and wide at the conservative side of the political world as possible. And when that racist label grew old, the left would then talk about the travesty of a Republican base and conservative camp that just wanted to see Obama fail – that already had it in for Obama to fail at the presidency, before he even took office.
But discussing Trump’s sudden and tragic death during the inauguration? Apparently, at CNN, that constitutes a breaking news segment.
Guess they’ll just keep finding new ways to be outrageously disgusting…the stories are beyond embarrassing now, aren’t they?
