CNN 'shuts up' conservative

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, American Thinker

This is a sad yet comical metaphor for the left’s view about civility. Polite yet pugnacious former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli was featured on CNN’s Chris Cuomo show Monday to discuss Charlottesville. With him as counterpoint was former Bernie Sanders press secretary Symone Sanders, who in 2016 said, "[W]e don't need white people leading the Democratic party right now." Both guests told the other to "shut up," yet only Cuccinelli was asked to apologize.

CNN Fires Me

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

To criticize, condemn, or mock these Nazi-style tactics by calling out the group in question and its leadership by name is — which as CNN has just demonstrated in my case — hazardous. Media Matters went to work on CNN using their old and now very well used playbook. As they turned their tactics on Rush Limbaugh and now Hannity, they have just done the same to me. And CNN folded.

Jim Acosta Can't Handle the Facts

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

When (Trump aide Stephen) Miller was done, (CNN reporter Jim) Acosta complained, "You called me ignorant on national television." The Washington Post "fact-checker" squad must have agonized as it underlined Acosta as the ignorant half of this exchange. If it did, kudos to the Washington Post for breaking the mold.

CNN's White-Whale Russia Obsession

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Obviously, the left thinks Russia is its silver bullet for Trump's impeachment, and CNN is its channel for obsessive round-the-clock prosecution. That's why it's laughable that The New York Times recently reported CNN is lagging in the ratings behind "the more ideologically driven coverage of Fox News and MSNBC."

Was The Russian Lawyer's Meeting With Donald Trump Jr Part Of A Deep State Plot?

Connect the dots and it looks like the same group of dictator-friendly Democrats who got the the spurious dossier on then-candidate Donald Trump into the news have chosen this moment to leak information on Donald Jr. to keep the phony Russian collusion story alive.

Dear Russian Agents, Send Help

Please, send us what you have so we can better expose the deceit and hypocrisy of those who would fundamentally change America by undermining the rule of law and liberty. And maybe – just maybe – the GOP in Washington will see that what’s happening from within to undermine our constitutional republic and way of life is nearly as horrible as what you Russians are trying.

Trump Grinds the G20, the Bureaucratic Underground, and CNN into Hamburger

Clarice Feldman, American Thinker

Trump's speech prefaced the G20 meeting in Hamburg, where leftists rioted, burned, and looted while the G20 leaders ponced about and wined and dined in style, apparently oblivious to the havoc which their open border policies and multiculturalist mindset had birthed. As Trump worked successfully on trade and defense issues in Europe, his administration was quietly plugging security leaks and maladministration in our own bureaucratic underground.

Trump’s Tweets Awaken The Living Dead

When Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Lindsey Graham are the voices and faces of the Republican Party it reminds us of scenes from our favorite zombie movies.

We Should Cheer CNN’s Ritual Suicide

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

As much as it is a joy to see CNN shred its pretenses and act openly as we always knew it wanted to, this sort of thing is not good. There is a cultural war underway already, and this only makes it more likely to get worse. When the media takes a side, it makes the other side its enemy. That’s a conscious choice. And CNN seems happy to help feed the fire by embracing its liberal fascist id.

Trump Provokes CNN’s Self-Immolation, America Relieved

Roger Kimball, American Greatness

Like every politician, Donald Trump will require a modicum of good luck to succeed. Many things, including many things utterly beyond his control, could derail his presidency. But when it comes to handling his many domestic enemies and opponents, it looks to me like Trump is playing three-dimensional chess while they struggle to master checkers.

Project Veritas Drops Another Video Bomb Of CNN Producer Mocking Chris Cuomo

Nick Givas, Daily Caller

CNN associate producer Jimmy Carr says Chris Cuomo is only anchor of CNN’s “New Day” because his brother is governor of New York in yet another undercover video from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas. In the video posted Wednesday, Carr said of Cuomo’s rise, “I don’t have a brother who’s the governor, so … ”

More Fake News From CNN

CNN reports that 44 states have "refused" to provide voter information to President Trump's Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity are patently false, more "fake news."

When Opposing A Revolution Was Good For Business

Today, as in the time of the American Revolution, the media elite oppose the revolution that the American people are making, not because its goals are unjust, but because opposition to the revolution is good business. 

The media will do anything to bash Trump — and now they’re hurting

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

It is remarkable that, if it weren’t for the unproven allegations of Trump collusion, the media would have no interest in the Russia story at all. This despite the fact that leading officials, including both Democrats and Republicans, have called the interference an “act of war.” But it’s a strange war — one that is important only to the extent Trump can be linked to it. Otherwise, who cares?

Did The Left Just Start The Civil War It Has Been Threatening?

Hodgkinson’s attack on the Republican congressional baseball team wasn’t mental illness. Read his writings, read the political manifesto in his letters to the editor and it doesn’t require an FBI investigation to recognize that this was the first “lone wolf” attack in the Left’s long-planned American civil war.

The CNN 'Scholar' Throwing Excrement

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

CNN says it should be viewed as "the one nonpartisan cable news network," presumably unlike MSNBC, and certainly unlike Fox News. But after CNN host Reza Aslan uncorked vicious and profane anti-Trump tirades, CNN cannot plausibly keep this man on the payroll and say it's "the one nonpartisan cable news network," or a haven for civilized discourse.

Pittsburgh Not Paris Rally: You Can Do It Too

The Fairfax County GOP’s Pittsburgh Not Paris rally was a huge success garnering media coverage all over the world. We urge our conservative friends to do the same thing in their communities. Put the notice out on social media, hit your email list, make some signs and send us pictures and a short report on your success.

Kathy Griffin Gets Her Comeuppance

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

There is no real repentance here. Everyone knows that this was an apology offered to save her line-crossing business. The left wants her to cross the line to smash conservatives in the mouth. Incivility is the most satisfying kind of "resistance." Does anyone doubt she will return to her nasty routine once Franken & Co. get her "back on her feet"?

Tell CNN Kathy Griffin Has To Be Fired

FLASH: CNN terminates Kathy Griffin as host of New Years Eve show. We urge CHQ readers to call CNN headquarters to demand that Kathy Griffin be fired for choosing to promote herself with such a vulgar and offensive image. Tell CNN that if the network stands for the values of decency, civility, and tolerance then Kathy Griffin has no place in their line-up.

Hypocrisy In The Anti-O'Reilly Army

L. Brent Bozell and Tim Graham, Investor's Business Daily

Women deserve a workplace where men don't harass them for sex. But that's what these sanctimonious liberal journalists care about. It just doesn't matter how brutal the alleged rape of Juanita Broaddrick was. What matters is that Bill O'Reilly had to go. Bill Clinton is laughing.
