CNN has long been known for its anti-Trump bent and for its questionable reporting.
But now CNN reporters are taking it too far with their outright lies and fabrications.
That’s why Americans cheered when Donald Trump made Jim Acosta pay for his latest lie and left CNN reeling.
Everyone knows news organizations are for profit companies.
While they have always claimed to be the “arbiters of truth” and the “last line of defense for the freedom of speech”, in fact they were all always profit-making companies reporting on the news that sells.
So, the Fake News Media isn’t really all that new.
They’ve always decided what stories were worthy of running and which ones weren’t. This was especially true with the advent of television news.
But now, it seems they aren’t letting profits decide any more.
Newspapers are failing all over the country, and television news networks are struggling to hang on.
So, what has been the media’s way to handle this? Turn even more partisan, even more left-wing to turn away the remaining sane viewers.
The result? Even more bankrupt and failing news organizations. Turns out using profit to decide the news was actually a better strategy.
CNN may be the prime example of this decision to ignore viewers to promote their executives’ left-wing agenda.
Once the leader in news, 24 hours a day, and long considered a trusted source for news without all the bias, CNN has now literally become the public affairs firm of the Democrat Party and radical left-wing activists.
Nowhere is this truer than in their coverage of President Donald Trump.
The once proud network has gone out of its way to attack the President at every turn.
And arguably the most famous of the CNN reporters who attack, demean and arguably libel the President is Jim Acosta.
You remember Jim Acosta. The CNN White House correspondent who had his White House pass taken away for hitting a female intern who was trying to get him to stop yelling at a presidential news conference.
Yes, that Jim Acosta.
Well, on the President’s recent trip to India, Acosta was at it again. And in a showing that made most Americans cheer, President Trump did not back down, and in fact took the gloves off when Acosta called the President a liar.
During an afternoon press conference while in India, Acosta asked President Trump if he would make a pledge not to accept foreign assistance in the 2020 election, to which the president replied, “I want no help from any country.”
“I haven’t been given help from any country. And if you see what CNN, your wonderful network said, I guess they apologized in a way for — didn’t they apologize for saying certain things that weren’t true?” the president asked Acosta, referring to CNN’s despicable and untruthful coverage of so-called Russian interference in the 2020 election.
Acosta replied, “Mr. President, I think our record on delivering the truth is a lot better than yours sometimes, if you don’t mind me saying.”
But that wasn’t the end of the exchange. The President fired back, “Your record is so bad, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. You probably have the worst record in the history of broadcasting.”
Acosta and other reporters present were stunned. And CNN has been trying to explain away the President’s comments ever since.
Of course, this president and CNN have a long track record of hostility with each another.
While it’s hard to explain the network’s rabid hostility to the President (after all aren’t members of the media supposed to be impartial observers and reporters of facts).
But one can certainly understand President Trump’s hostility to a network that has dedicated its airtime to pushing false narratives that are proven untrue in a concerted effort with Democrats and so-called “Never-Trump Republicans” to overthrow the current administration.
And it is quite refreshing to a majority of Americans that Trump, unlike his predecessors in the White House, isn’t afraid to dish it out to leftist reporters whose only goal is to make him look bad.
Now the question is, will CNN and its reporters like Jim Acosta learn to stop being hostile and serving as the useful idiots for the Democrat Party and instead do their job: Report facts.
That is probably too much to ask.
