Dick Cheney Says to CNN’s Barbara Starr: Trump Took Us To Point Where We “Don’t Need You Guys Anymore”
WILL TRUMP MAKE THE MSM IRRELEVANT OR HAVE THEY ALREADY DONE THAT TO THEMSELVES?
Over the weekend, former Vice President Dick Cheney and Former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta discussed the new era of foreign policy under President-elect Donald Trump with CNN’s Barbara Starr at the Reagan Library. The media seems to be worried about Donald Trump’s tweets. That is when Cheney provided the following comment as to why maybe the MSM is in such a huff over Trump’s tweets, do they feel that they will be made irrelevant and not needed anymore? Funny line. I bet the media never thought they would miss Dick Cheney.
Honestly, since it is pretty much obvious, especially after the last election cycle that journalism is dead, maybe it is the media that made their own-self irrelevant.
“I think one of the reasons people get so concerned about the tweets is it is sort of a way around the press. He doesn’t have to rely upon, uh, rely upon — this is the modern era, modern technology. He’s at the point where we don’t need you guys anymore.”
FMR. VICE PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY: One of the most important things [President-elect Trump] can do is exactly the opposite of what his predecessor did. With respect to Iran and nuclear weapons, and don’t make the mistakes that the situation he is inheriting from the Obama administration represented. With respect to our status in the world, the capabilities of our forces, the belief on the part of I believe many of our friends and allies that they can no longer trust the United States or count on our guarantees. I think we need to do major progress and reverse the Obama policies and not that’s not a place for President Trump to start.
BARBARA STARR, CNN: But Secretary Cheney, Mr. Vice President, you are someone who has a long history of being very precise in your words, in your thinking and your analysis. I’m not aware of anytime you ever said anything very casually. [Laughter]
CHENEY: Oh, now, Barbara.
STARR: At least that I can’t recall. I heard that Air Force general that you fired. Um, that’s another story we’ll get to later.
So, c’mon, let’s hear it. What are you — what is your, you know, you hear this casual language. And when I say that don’t go out tweeting that I am anti-this or anti-that. The language of tweets is not necessarily as nuanced and contextual as U.S. foreign policy is. I think that is something that we can all agree on. So when you see this, seriously, what concerns does it cause you? If you were sitting with him and could give him some advice about all of this — about language, about meaning of words — what would you say? What would your advice be?
CHENEY: Well, I, first of all, am not sitting with him.
STARR: Would you if asked?
CHENEY: Would if I asked?
STARR: Would you?
CHENEY: Certainly, if the President of the United States asks for advice. I would have been happy to advise Barack Obama but he never asked me. [Laughter]
STARR: So, again, language and words. [Laughter]
STARR: You see, the man never says anything casual.
CHENEY: I think he needs to be careful but he’ll learn as he goes along. I think he is putting some brains and good people with him. I am a big fan of Mike Pence. I know Mike well from his 12 years in the House and I think he’s a great choice as Vice President. He’s going to play a major role. I think Mr. Trump is taking very, very seriously the job that he has gotten now. Staffing up the administration.
I think one of the reasons people get so concerned about the tweets is it is sort of a way around the press. He doesn’t have to rely upon, uh, rely upon — this is the modern era, modern technology. He’s at the point where we don’t need you guys anymore.
CNN Producer Caught On Hot Mic Joking About A Trump Plane Crash & Reporter Laughs (Update: CNN Apologizes to Trump)
I THINK IT IS SAFE TO SAY THAT CNN IS A BIAS AND DISGUSTING MEDIA OUTLET …
CNN has been caught once again being bias against president-elect Donald Trump and this time it was hardly funny and a laughing matter. While CNN was gathered at the Carrier plant in Indiana, prior to President-elect Donald Trump arriving to give a speech to the Carrier workers regarding the deal he made that saved roughly a thousand jobs to remain in the United States rather than being sent to Mexico, the CNN news crew decided to joke around about a pretty gross and reprehensible topic. A CNN producer was caught on a hot mic saying,“If I do this, it means he’s landed, .. and That means his plane’s crashed…just kidding.” UNREAL.
Can you imagine the outrage from the MSM had some one from FOX News had said something like this regarding Obama? Hmm? Donald Trump is 100% correct to call out the bias and factually incorrect liberal media. This is yet another example of the media bias and double standard. As if a media individual had done this with a Democrat president, they would have been fired.
While CNN was gathered at the Carrier plant in Indiana yesterday, waiting for President-elect Donald Trump to arrive to give a speech regarding the deal that kept roughly a thousand jobs in the U.S., the crew decided to joke around about a pretty grisly topic.
In video obtained by FTVLive, correspondent Suzanne Malveaux was prepping for her live broadcast from Indianapolis. She can be seen discussing what she needs to say on air, what items to touch on, doing sound checks, asking for water, etc.
However, at one point, as they were getting close to going live, a producer can be heard off screen talking about signals she would give if Trump’s plan had landed. It then went south rather quickly.
“That means his plane’s crashed…just kidding,” the voice can be heard saying, while Malveaux’s eyes bugged out. She then tried to smile it off.
The video showed Malveaux — who joined the network in 2002 — reacting with a stunned face but laughing at the remark.
“An unfortunate and inappropriate remark was made by one of our producers off camera yesterday,” a CNN rep said in a statement, Business Insider reported.
“We have apologized to the Trump transition team, and the producer has been disciplined.”
Trump routinely lambastes the media in general but has also singled out some outlets for verbal abuse, including CNN.
Who knew, maybe the LEFT should have used comedian, late night talk show host Jon Stewart as a political consultant after all. In the end, whatever the Democrat strategy was of calling Trump voters racists, lost badly. It was those same people who elected Barack Obama two times previously that the Democrat party decided to attack.
Former talk show host Jon Stewart slammed the “hypocrisy” of the left for supposedly rejecting stereotypes while painting Donald Trump voters as racist.
Mr. Stewart, former host of “The Daily Show,” sat down with CBS’ Charlie Rose in an interview aired Thursday to discuss his new book, “An Oral History” and weigh in on Donald Trump’s stunning Election Day victory.
“I thought Donald Trump disqualified himself at numerous points,” Mr. Stewart said. “But there is now this idea that anyone who voted for him has to be defined by the worst of his rhetoric.
“Like, there are guys in my neighborhood that I love, that I respect, that I think have incredible qualities who are not afraid of Mexicans, and not afraid of Muslims, and not afraid of blacks. They’re afraid of their insurance premiums,” he continued. “In the liberal community, you hate this idea of creating people as a monolith. Don’t look as Muslims as a monolith. They are the individuals and it would be ignorance. But everybody who voted for Trump is a monolith, is a racist. That hypocrisy is also real in our country.”
LOBBYISTS BEING REMOVED FROM POLITICS … HOW COULD THIS BE A BAD THING?
Following the ’60 Minutes’ interview with Donald Trump where it was reported that there were lobbyists in the Trump transition team, an interesting thing happened. They were all removed. Vice President-elect Mike Pence reportedly ordered the removal of all lobbyists from president-elect Donald Trump’s transition team. Being able to change on the fly when you see an issue or flaw is a good thing, not a bad one. The liberal New York Times can spew all their nonsense they want about Trump transition being in disarray, identifying flaws and correcting them are a good thing, that is what one does in business as opposed to beating a dead horse, or donkey. But then again, we all know what the people think of the media.
Vice President-elect Mike Pence reportedly ordered the removal of all lobbyists from president-elect Donald Trump’s transition team, The Wall Street Journal wrote on Tuesday night.
The decision was one of Pence’s first since formally taking over the team’s lead role. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was abruptly dismissed from the post last week.
Critics have excoriated Trump for including lobbyists, Washington insiders, and Republican Party veterans among his team, suggesting it contradicts the anti-establishment message that defined his campaign.
“[Americans] do not want corporate executives to be the ones who are calling the shots in Washington,” Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren said earlier Tuesday. “What Donald Trump is doing is that he’s putting together a transition team that’s full of lobbyists — the kind of people he actually ran against,” she said.
Donald Trump tweeted, “Very organized process taking place as I decide on Cabinet and many other positions. I am the only one who knows who the finalists are!”
MRC/YouGov Poll: 69% Think Media is Dishonest … 78% of Voters Say News Coverage of the Presidential Campaign was Bias
THE MEDIA HAS FINALLY BEEN EXPOSED TO BE BIAS, DISHONEST AND UNTRUSTWORTHY ...
One of the biggest losers of the 2016 presidential elections was the news media, from top to bottom. A recent MRC/YouGov poll showed that 69% of voters believe the media to be dishonest and untrustworthy, while another 78% stated that the new coverage of the presidential campaign was biased. Of those who believe the media was bias, nearly a 3-to-1 majority believing the media were for Clinton (59%) vs. for Trump (21%). Maybe one of the most telling and disastrous finding of this poll for the media was that 97% of voters said that they did not let the MSM affect or influence their vote. Can you say, the MSM is now irrelevant?
The Media Research Center (MRC) announces the findings of a new post-election poll on what actual voters thought about the media’s influence on the 2016 presidential race. The MRC/YouGov poll was conducted on November 9 and 10.
- 7 in 10 (69%) voters do not believe the news media are honest and truthful.
- 8 in 10 (78%) of voters believe the news coverage of the presidential campaign was biased, with nearly a 3-to-1 majority believing the media were for Clinton (59%) vs. for Trump (21%).
- Even 1/3 (32%) of Clinton voters believe the media were “pro-Clinton.”
- 8% of Trump voters said they would have voted for Clinton if they had believed what the media were saying about Trump.
- 97% of voters said they did not let the media’s bias influence their vote.
This should be a wake up call for the liberal media, but it is most likely not. They still appear to be spewing their liberal bias agenda in their news as pointed out by Legal Insurrection. However, one thing is for certain, the American voters rejected their bias and was able to see through the lies.
