On August 17, CNN published a story with the headline: “Here Are All The Active Hate Groups Where You Live.” Was it a concise list of Nazi groups? No. It was the SPLC “hate map” and the “917 hate groups” that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) designated as dangerous. The post was just SPLC’s regurgitated map and list, given without comment, context or qualification.
In the aftermath of Charlottesville, when the term “hate group” is used, images of the KKK and neo-nazis immediately come to mind.
However, according to CNN, the real hate groups to watch out for are the conservative organizations, specifically Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), the Family Research Council (FRC), American Family Association and ACT for America.
On Friday, CNN sent out an alert for an article suggesting Americans are murderers and are responsible for the death of a woman killed in a flood. Why? Because Americans contribute to climate change. This misuse of alerts normally reserved for actual news is nothing new. CNN now promotes propaganda via mobile alerts on a regular basis.
Given the fundamental dishonesty of almost any discussion of workplace "diversity" and "inclusion" in the leftist media, it was inevitable that someone would grossly mischaracterize the critique written by now ex-Google employee James Damore as an ode to male chauvinism. CNN has done just that, hysterically and falsely claiming that Damore argued that "women aren't suited for tech jobs for 'biological' reasons." He did no such thing — and on Twitter, CNNMoney.com writer Jackie Wattles essentially admitted it.
The author of a Tuesday column on CNN.com called on companies and organization to make "gender-neutral" language mandatory in the workplace, as American society supposedly needs to "move beyond the assumption that everyone should assimilate into the categories of male or female." Heath Fogg Davis, a transgender academic, proposed that employers should "require that everyone adopt a gender-neutral pronoun." Fogg Davis contended that such language would "minimize the opportunities for others to evaluate our gender and risk getting wrong something so important."
The establishment press and the left began to build a template after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the U.S. Their argument, which eventually gained traction with protest movements during the Iraq War, claimed that any serious attempt to kill, imprison, expel, or otherwise punish terrorists would only help the enemy recruit more terrorists. A CNN reporter and an opinion writer are now claiming that an equivalent of this bogus argument should apply to the attempt to rid the nation of the scourge of the MS-13 gang.
CNN actually sent out this mobile alert Tuesday. You would think the alert aspect of their app is meant for news notifications, but CNN just can't help itself as they continue their war on the president.
In an appearance Sunday morning on ABC's This Week, New York Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer teased his party's economic plan which will be unveiled Monday. One hopes, probably in vain, that it incorporates an understanding of basic economics. Schumer betrayed the fact that he has little to no such understanding when he declared that "gas prices are sticky," and that when the "price for oil goes up on the markets ... it never goes down." This Week host George Stephanopolous was to so interested in pushing Schumer about "single-payer" health care, aka a full government takeover of health care, that he didn't even notice (or pretended not to).
Al Gore was just one of the climate alarmists to link a recent iceberg calving to “the climate crisis.” The Guardian blamed climate change even before the massive iceberg A-68 broke off from the Larsen C ice shelf.
Gore tweeted “The Larsen C ice shelf has broken away from Antarctica, a jarring reminder of why we must solve the climate crisis” on July 12. Scientists studying the ice shelf said the opposite.
Why does Donald Trump bash CNN as an ideological purveyor of fake news out to get the President? Just look at the cable network’s app and see what headlines they are blasting out to viewers. Story after story shows an obsession with Trump and his children and no objectivity or perspective is apparently needed. As of 11:37pm ET on Tuesday night, four out of the top five stories on the CNN app were about Trump Jr. What was the fifth story? “Special ops forces among 16 dead in Marine Corps plane crash.”
The media fawning over Barack Obama never ends, despite his having left office six months ago. Lefty news sites such as CNN, Bustle, Refinery 29 and The Huffington Post continued that fawning with a simple selfie photo of Obama with a cute baby at the Anchorage International Airport.
Throughout the 2016 election, journalists were technically correct and yet unrelenting in their criticism of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump’s reliance on the accuracy of entirely insignificant and unscientific surveys that reflected well on his candidacy and debate performances. On September 27, for instance, CNN posted a “fact-check” article, arguing that Trump “[misled] people by citing unscientific, unrepresentative Internet polls” in the wake of the first presidential debate in the general election. The Washington Post similarly argued that “the online polls are, again, garbage,” and impugned Trump for mentioning them in his speeches.
