Most rational and reasonable individuals expect that when someone says something about you that isn’t true, you would hopefully acknowledge that and perhaps apologize for misspeaking. Moreover it may have been a simple mistake and most of us would perhaps be OK with that, as long as there was a reasonable explanation.
However when a news organization purposely and continually goes to extremes to discredit someone simply to push their own perverse agenda by reporting dubious information as factual “news” then that news organization should be regulated to those cheesy celebrity gossip magazines you find at the checkout counter at you’re neighborhood supermarket, reporting on the 102-year old woman who just gave birth, to an alien.
And that’s where the premiere number one phony muckraker CNN finds itself, at the “kiddy-table” for spreading “FAKE NEWS!”
The White House has finally had enough of CNN’s blatant and unprofessional antics of pretending to be an objective news organization, from rigging a Democratic town hall debate to knowingly reporting unsubstantiated news from an untrustworthy source.
The smackdown of CNN by the White house will no doubt have repercussions all across the mainstream landscape, and of course it about time.
A spokesmen for the White House admitted saying; “We’re sending surrogates to places where we think it makes sense to promote our agenda,” but then added the ban was not permanent.
By refusing to send administration spokespeople or surrogates to CNN shows, the White House is employing the same tactic used by then Republican Candidate Donald Trump, when Fox’s Megyn Kelly aggressively went after Trump at the Republican Debate, Trump decided to simply freeze her out, and he did, appearing on both Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity shows respectively.
And while the dust-up proved to be a temporary bonanza for Kelly, propelling her into the national spotlight, in the end her show “The Kelly File” took a nose dive among her loyal followers, and suddenly left the network to take a daytime spot at NBC.
No doubt CNN is feeling the squeeze as reporters complain, “The White House is trying to punish the network and force down its ratings.”
SHARE if you think CNN should be boycotted for attacking our President with unfounded allegations and spreading fake news!
