UNBELIEVABLE … CNN Host Chris Cuomo Says ‘Fake News’ Insult is the ‘Equivalent of the N-word for Journalists’
AS IF THE LIBERAL MSM COULD NOT GET ANY MORE RIDICULOUS AND BE MORE INSULTINGLY WRONG …
So are black Americans going to boycott CNN after this misguided and insulting comment? CNN’s Chris Cuomo said that be believes using the term “fake news” toward the media is the equivalent of the N-words for journalists. WOW. How could anyone be so arrogant and ignorant to make such a ridiculous comment? A note to Chris Cuomo, CNN and the rest of the MSM … the use of the word “fake news” to describe what you people pass as news is NOTHING LIKE THE N-WORD! Is this really what the liberal news thinks of black people? That some how they are in the same boat of racism and bigotry as some because they are being called out for what is bias journalism with a liberal agenda?The smug Cuomo said, you better be right if you are going to charge a journalist with fake news. REALLY? How about the journalist better get the story right and actually do the sourcing before they spew their liberal agenda based reports?
I cant wait for the backlash on these foolish comments and the apology.
CNN host Chris Cuomo said on Thursday that he believes hurling the “fake news” insult at journalists is similar to when people use racial slurs against minorities.
“I see being called ‘fake news’ as the equivalent of the N-word for journalists, the equivalent of calling an Italian any of the ugly words that people have for that ethnicity,” Cuomo said on SiriusXM.
“That’s what ‘fake news’ is to a journalist,” the CNN host continued. “It’s an ugly insult, and you better be right if you’re going to charge a journalist with lying on purpose.”
UPDATE I: You knew it would not take long for the apology as I am sure the phones and social media lit up at CNN after Chris Cuomo compared Fake news to the N-word. Cuomo could not text fast enough the following apology, ‘I was wrong. Calling a journalist fake -nothing compared to the pain of a racial slur,’ he wrote on Twitter Thursday afternoon. ‘I should not have said it. I apologize.’
Donald Trump Calls CNN Fake News At Press Conference in Wake of Release of an Unverified Dossier by Buzzfeed (VIDEO)
DONALD TRUMP CALLS CNN FAKE NEWS …
Yesterday at President-elect Donald Trump’s first press conference, he called out and put CNN News in its place by calling them “fake news”. In the wake of the release of the unverified dossier released by BuzzFeed and run with by CNN, Trump called CNN for what they were. The fact of the matter is that CNN wanted it to be true, that’s why they ran with this unsubstantiated report. They never would have done this to Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. But they are so willing to go after Trump that any and all journalistic standards are thrown to the wayside. Personally, the individual was acting so rude and disrepectful, I would have had hi removed if he didn’t shut up.
“Your organization is terrible!” Trump fumed, trying to move on to another reporter, despite Acosta’s pleas that he be allowed to ask a question, since Trump had slammed his network.
“Don’t be rude,” Trump responded. “Don’t be rude. No, I’m not going to give you a question . . . You are fake news!”
CNN’s Don Lemon Defends Chicago Black on White Hate Crime, Kidnapping & Assulat … “I Don’t Think It Was Evil, Just Bad Home Training” (VIDEO)
LIBERALISM REALLY IS A MENTAL DISEASE … JUST LISTEN TO CNN’S DON LEMON DEFENDING THE HEINOUS HATE CRIME ASSAULT ON A MENTALLY DISABLED MAN …
This is how low the liberal media and CNN has sunk. Yesterday, CNN anchor Don Lemon actually defended the viscous and despicable hate crime attack on a white, mentally disabled man by four black teens. Lemon stated, “I don’t think it was evil, just bad home training”. Are you serious? To not say what this was, is not only insane, it is racist. I am sure Mr. Lemon would have quite a differing opinion has the roles been reversed. How long can CNN actually employ this man?
Hey Don, why don;t you have another drink.
More despicable actions from CNN … Dem CNN Contributor Unsure if Chicago Attack on White, Special Needs Man Is a Hate Crime
Symone Sanders, a CNN contributor who previously served as press secretary for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I., Vt.) presidential campaign, was skeptical on Wednesday night that the torture of a white man with special needs constitutes a hate crime.
CNN host Don Lemon assembled a panel late Wednesday evening to discuss the gruesome video that shows a white man with special needs being tortured by a group of African-American teenagers. The video had been posted to Facebook Live, and the four suspects have since been arrested by the Chicago Police Department. The suspects in the video shout, “Fuck Donald Trump! Fuck white people.”
While discussing the video, Lemon noted that the Chicago Police Department is investigating whether the attack could be labeled a hate crime. He then asked Sanders whether she would classify the incident as a hate crime.
Sanders first denounced the crime, describing it as “sickening,” but then questioned whether the act should be described as a hate crime.
“We can’t callously call things hate crime,” Sanders said. “Is this hate for Donald Trump or pure hate of white people? That matters.”
Sanders tried to explain her distinction between what she would view as a hate crime versus a crime committed against someone because of their political beliefs.
“Because someone does not like your political leanings and they do something bad to you, that is not a hate crime,” Sanders said.
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.
