Often while watching CNN, one can only just shake their head at the utter lack of self-awareness regarding many of their anti-Trump declarations. One such moment occurred during Tuesday’s edition of Anderson Cooper 360 when infamous plagiarist and CNN host Fareed Zakaria chastised President Trump, suggesting that no one believed what he said. And to add to the irony of the situation, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper agreed that it was a sorry state of affairs.
Do you remember when CNN's James Clapper was caught lying to the Senate Intelligence Committee in 2013 when he was still the Director of National Intelligence in response to a question about whether the NSA collected data on millions of Americans? Well, the good news for Clapper is he might be exonerated since it could be that it was not him but his "evil twin" that was the one who was doing the lying.
Clapper made the suggestion on Friday about his "evil twin" lying instead of him on CNN during an interview with Erin Burnett. Because President Donald Trump tweeted about Clapper's inconsistent testimony about his media contacts, Burnett had no choice but to ask him about it.
George Neumayr at The American Spectator made hay with the new House Intelligence Committee report that accuses former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper of leaking to CNN in January as CNN's Jake Tapper broke the story that senior intelligence officials briefed President Obama and President-elect Trump on the Christopher Steele "dossier." That would make sense...considering CNN is now paying Clapper to be a yapper to Tapper on TV.
During an interview you would not see on such liberal cable television channels as CNN or MSNBC, radio host Mark Levin slammed Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff (Calif.) while the conservative activist was a guest on Wednesday evening’s edition of the Fox News Channel's Hannity .
CNN: The news outlet that pompously declares they’re “the most trusted name in news” threw that out the window on Monday when their national security analyst and Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper suggested that President Trump was being treated like an intelligence asset by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
During the past week, most people who follow center-right news outlets and blogs became familiar with the name of Charles McCullough III. McCullough, the former Intel Community General Inspector who identified 22 "beyond classified" emails present on Hillary Clinton's home-brew server years after she had left her position as Obama administration Secretary of State, has appeared on several Fox shows revealing that he was harassed and threatened for reporting that finding to his superiors, and that he was promised that he would be fired once Mrs. Clinton won the 2016 general election (oops). Very few establishment press outlets have done anything with the story in the past six days, and the rare exceptions have used McCullough's revelations as a platform to take shots at President Donald Trump.
Amidst the media’s raging meltdowns on Tuesday over the possibility President Trump will trigger a nuclear holocaust with North Korea, liberal CNN analysts Jeffrey Toobin and James Clapper implored the media writ large to “dial this all back a little bit” with the “quite incendiary” rhetoric.
Hours after CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter published a Monday morning piece blasting conservative talk radio host Mark Levin for offering “an incendiary idea” that the Obama administration was surveilling then-candidate Donald Trump, Levin fired back with an open letter addressing Stelter’s “incredible” smear.
During Tuesday's edition of The View, ABC's weekday talk show, each of the five female co-hosts was delirious with joy as the panelists discussed Michael Flynn's resignation as the Trump administration's national security adviser. After Whoopi Goldberg stated that Flynn was "not feeling the love this morning,” fellow comedienne Joy Behar demanded that the 2016 presidential be “done again” because she believes that “the Russians handed the presidency to Donald Trump.”
Following the release of the intelligence report detailing Russia’s meddling in the U.S. election late last week, the Sunday morning shows were all abuzz with commentary with most of it critical of President-elect Donald Trump. But things were slightly different on CBS’ Face the Nation where radio host Tammy Bruce ripped in President Barack Obama for his meddling in the democratic election in Israel, all in a futile attempt to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
At the Associated Press late Thursday morning, Ken Dilanian, the wire service's intelligence writer, did a marvelous job of covering up the essence of Director of National Intelligence James Clapper's Worldwide Threat Assessment testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee.
The trouble is that if he were doing his job as our Founders anticipated he would when they gave the nation's press extraordinary and then unheard-of freedoms, he would have covered the story instead of covering it up.
On Wednesday night, the major broadcast networks failed to report on news that an internal memo was sent to members of the intelligence community by Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper praising their efforts on identifying the rise of ISIS after President Barack Obama blamed them for not doing so in an interview on Sunday’s 60 Minutes.
The memo was able to be obtained by Fox News and its chief intelligence correspondent, Catherine Herridge and it detailed how government intelligence has, for two years, “monitored, assessed and called attention to the expansion of ISIS.”
