WTF is Going On at CNN? Scandals Explode for Fake News All-Stars April Ryan, Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo

Slurs, sexual accusations, and assaults mire Fake News Network

AUGUST 14, 2019

Something’s happening at CNN.

No, we’re not talking about the network’s record low ratings.

CNN anchors can’t seem to stay out of trouble.

This week three different CNN anchors have been the focus of major controversies – and it’s only Wednesday.

Chris “Fredo” Cuomo

On Monday, a video went viral showing Cuomo Prime Time host Chris Cuomo threatening to kill someone after the guy called him “Fredo,” a term referring to the dumbest, most treacherous brother in the Godfather movies.

“Punk ass bitches from the right call me Fredo. My name is Chris Cuomo, I’m an anchor on CNN,” Cuomo told the man, before adding, “It’s like the N-word for us. Is that a cool fucking thing?”

Eventually the exchange escalates and Cuomo threatens to kill the guy.

“I’ll fucking ruin your shit. I’ll fucking throw you down these stairs like a fucking punk,” he says.

Watch the video:

And see Infowars’ interview with the Twitter user who uploaded the encounter, “THAT’S THE POINT with Brandon”:

Don Lemon

Then, we learned about a salacious lawsuit against CNN Tonight host Don Lemon, accusing him of grotesque sexually-charged behavior at a New York bar.

From Zero Hedge:

A man named Dustin Hice is suing CNN anchor Don Lemon for assault, alleging that the anchor attacked him at a bar in the Hamptons last summer, according to Mediaite

Hice noticed Lemon at Sag Harbor dive bar Murf’s in July 2018, where he allegedly approached Lemon, “tried to get Mr. Lemon’s attention and offered to buy Mr. Lemon a drink,” the suit claims. The CNN host declined the drink, saying he was “just trying to have a good time.”

The lawsuit then alleges that Lemon approached Hice later in the night, “put his hand down the front of his own shorts, and vigorously rubbed his genitalia, removed his hand and shoved his index and middle fingers in Plaintiff’s moustache and under Plaintiff’s nose.”

While shoving his fingers in Hice’s face, Lemon allegedly asked him “Do you like pussy or dick?”

Hice says in the lawsuit he left the bar “shocked and humiliated.”

Now that’s f**ked up…

April Ryan

Next, reports emerged that a security guard for CNN contributor April Ryan was seen assaulting a reporter who attended one of her events.

According to Mediaite, a reporter for a local paper called New Brunswick Today was accosted when he tried to go into an event where Ryan was set to make a speech.

Mediaite reported:

“During the intro, this man came up to me, mentioned my video camera & asked me ‘Who are you with?’” Kratovil wrote on Twitter. “I gave him my card & explained that I followed the proper channels to cover the event. I asked if he had a card & he responded by saying he was ‘with the speaker.’”

Kratovil said the bodyguard then took down his camera and carried it out of the room. Surveillance video shows him getting violently dragged out of the event by the man. “Get off of me motherfucker!” Kratovil is heard shouting.

Just what in the heck is going on over there?

Speaking to Fox News, one media critic said any normal organization would have implemented policy changes by now, but that doesn’t seem to be happening at CNN.

“This was not a good week to be CNN. In addition to its abysmal ratings, three of its top news personalities are embroiled in scandal and controversy,” Cornell University Law School professor and media critic William A. Jacobson told Fox News.

“In a rational world, CNN leadership would implement a dramatic course correction, but there is no sign that rationality prevails at CNN,” he said.

Watch: Liberal Journalist Roughed Up Trying to Cover April Ryan Speech Pressing Charges? CNNLOL: ’When I Speak I don’t have news covering my speech’

CNN political analyst April Ryan is under fire over a video purportedly showing a man identified as a security guard getting into a physical altercation with a local news editor who was covering an event that featured her as the keynote speaker.

Ryan reportedly told the crowd, “I don’t have news covering my speech.”

Local news editor Charlie Kratovil of New Brunswick Today attended the New Jersey Parent Summit at the Heldrich Hotel August 3 and says he covered it for hours without any issues:

Later in the day, Joel Morris – who Kratovil identifies as Ryan’s security guard – approached the reporter, demanded to know what organization he was with, and allegedly threatened to take Kratovil’s camera down.

“I declined to acquiesce to this threat from a stranger,” Kratovil wrote.

“Just as Rep. Payne was praising Ms. Ryan for her recent @rcfp ‘Freedom of the Press’ award, the public relations people started to gather around me at my table, pressuring me to stop recording,” he continued in a Twitter thread, detailing what led up to the altercation.

“As soon as things started going south, I began recording audio of our conversation,” he added:

He was warned by others to stop recording and told that Ryan would not take the stage as long as he had his camera rolling. Kratovil exited the room to discuss the matter further. Ryan’s security guard whispered something to Ryan as she spoke on stage, and he reportedly unplugged Kratovil’s camera:

At that point, Ryan reportedly told the crowd, “When I speak, I don’t have news covering my speech”:

Things quickly escalated, with Shennell McCloud, executive director of Project Ready, allegedly demanding Kratovil’s removal. At that point, Kratovil says Morris grabbed him and forced him out of the hotel lobby:

Surveillance video also captured the incident:

Kratovil said he intends to press charges:

Notably, Kratovil is a Trump critic who has stood with Ryan and her network’s supposed devotion to “freedom of the press,” but he now says Ryan is at a crossroads.

“I think that the President deserves much criticism for his administration’s lack of transparency, his own irresponsible rhetoric towards the media, and his childish attacks on individual reporters like Ms. Ryan,” Kratovil said, according to Fox News.

“Her reputation now depends on finally addressing this situation head-on and proclaiming that what happened that night in New Brunswick cannot be tolerated,” he added.

Ryan has yet to publicly address the incident.

This is just the latest episode in a drama-filled week for CNN. Primetime Chris Cuomo has been under fire over a video that surfaced Monday, showing the anchor raging and threatening violence against an individual who referred to him as “Fredo” and comparing the pop-culture nickname to the “N Word.” A CNN spokesman affirmed that the network believes the term is an “ethnic slur” despite several CNN contributors and guests using it on-air.

CNN’s Don Lemon is also in the hot seat after being accused of assault, according to a lawsuit filed over the weekend:

Representatives for CNN PR have not respond to Breitbart News’s request for comment.

CNN Anchor Don Lemon Accused of Being Sexual Predator in Explosive Civil Suit

The plaintiff accuses Lemon of sexual assault that has caused him “emotional pain and suffering.”

By Shane Trejo

CNN fake news anchor Don Lemon has been one of the most sanctimonious anchors criticizing President Donald Trump since he was elected into office, but the open homosexual is now being accused of grotesque sexual improprieties in an explosive new civil suit.

Plaintiff Dustin Hice alleges that Lemon accosted him at Murf’s, a dive bar in the Hamptons. Hice was working as a bartender at a different Hamptons bar at the time, and claimed he approached Lemon after recognizing him from his CNN appearances in a friendly manner.

According to the lawsuit, Hice “tried to get Mr. Lemon’s attention and offered to buy Mr. Lemon a drink” but the CNN host refused the drink offer and then said he was “just trying to have a good time.” This is when things began to get strange.

“Mr. Lemon, who was wearing a pair of shorts, sandals, and a t-shirt, put his hand down the front of his own shorts, and vigorously rubbed his genitalia, removed his hand and shoved his index and middle fingers in Plaintiff’s mustache and under Plaintiff’s nose,” the lawsuit claims.

Lemon then allegedly asked his victim, “Do you like pussy or dick?”, which forced Hice to leave the bar “shocked and humiliated” at the surreal encounter with the fake news reader.

Hice was overwhelmed with “feelings of shame, humiliation, anxiety, anger, and guilt,” which impacted his work in the Hamptons. He claims he was made into a laughingstock in the area after sharing the intimate details of his victimization to others. Hice’s full complaint can be read here.

CNN is standing by the alleged predator Lemon, and denigrating Hice’s reputation based on posts made on his social media accounts.

“The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts,” a spokesperson for CNN said to Mediaite. “This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon. Don categorically denies these claims and this matter does not merit any further comment at this time.”

Hice’s lawyers, from the Nesenoff & Miltenberg law firm based out of New York, pushed back against CNN with the following statement:

“The assertion that Mr. Hice would put himself through the painful process of filing a sexual assault lawsuit against his attacker all because he doesn’t like a cable TV station is ludicrous. Rather, he took down his social media accounts on the day he filed the lawsuit against Don Lemon because he’s a private citizen and wants to protect himself from CNN’s heavy-handed tactics.”

Big League Politics will continue to report about these developments as the civil case proceeds in the court of law.

CNN RELABELS GUEST AS “CONTROVERSIAL PASTOR” AFTER HE REFUSED TO CRITICIZE TRUMP

Watch corporate media scramble to control narrative in real-time

By Ben Warren

CNN altered the description of a guest mid-interview to “controversial pastor” after the guest refused to criticize Trump; his bio had originally described him as one of the “faith leaders.”

After interviewer Don Lemon had pressed Reverend Bill Owens multiple times if he or other faith leaders had anything to say about Trump’s “attacks on leaders of color” during their Monday White House meeting, the interview – along with Owens’ descriptor chyron – shifted to a grilling of Owens’ past remarks, his Christian faith, and if he could even be taken seriously.

See the change for youself below:

CNN Twitter screenshot“So I know it’s hard for you, you think it’s hard to believe that Trump is racist,” said Lemon. “But he’s repeatedly used racially charged language. He consistently attacks black and brown elected leaders.”

“So, why is that hard to believe? Pastor?”

Owens responded by saying Trump is a leader of all colors who doesn’t racially discriminate who he attacks.

“I find President Trump a leader of all colors,” said Owens. “He attacks who he will. He’s his own man. I can’t dictate what he should or shouldn’t do.”

“But he does not just attack black people. He attacks anybody. And you know it.”

Lemon then used that response to attack Owens’ faith.

“So as a man of faith, as a Christian he attacks anyone,” said Lemon “It sounds like you’re condoning attacks? Is that Christianly or Godly?”

Watch the full interview while keeping an eye on the 2:34 mark to note the chyron change and shift in tone:

recent tweet from Owens explains his opinion on the encounter.

“When we heard from CNN, I weighed the costs and decided that I can’t carry out our ministry unless I’m willing to get out of my comfort zone and bring our message to Left-leaning media and the people who watch it.”

CNN’S LEMON SAYS AIRING TRUMP RALLIES IS LIKE GIVING HITLER A PLATFORM

CNN’s Lemon Says Airing Trump Rallies Is Like Giving Hitler A Platform

Lemon argued that Trump should be censored because the Holocaust began with “little lies.”

By Steve Watson

CNN host Don Lemon declared Tuesday that news networks airing President Trump’s speeches is akin to providing a platform for Hitler to spread Nazi propaganda.

Lemon argued that Trump should be censored because the Holocaust began with “little lies.”

“Think about Hitler,” Lemon urged, following Trump’s huge rally earlier in the week.

“If you could look back in history, would you say ‘well, I’m so glad that that person was allowed a platform so that they could spread their hate, and propaganda, and lies.” He asked.

The host also called Trump a racist, claiming that the fact he has not apologised to five black men wrongly accused of rape 30 years ago proves it.

“How the president feels about the Central Park Five, that can be a life or death issue for people like me,” Lemon claimed.

Lemon’s CNN colleague Chris Cuomo said the comparison of Trump to Hitler is a step too far.

“Comparing anything to an extreme like a Hitler weakens the argument because you are now taking a guy who says things you don’t like and comparing him to a genocidal maniac,” Cuomo said.

The comparison comes amid a furor surrounding comments made by Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who compared border detention facilities to Nazi concentration camps.

Ocasio-Cortez refused to apologize for the comparison Wednesday, instead doubling down and declaring “If that makes you uncomfortable, fight the camps – not the nomenclature.”

DON LEMON INVOKES HITLER WHILE DISCUSSING MEDIA’S ROLE IN COVERING TRUMP

Don Lemon Invokes Hitler While Discussing Media's Role in Covering Trump

CNN hack’s comments too extreme for Chris Cuomo

JUNE 19, 2019

CNN anchor Don Lemon made what he himself described as a “extreme” comparison between President Trump and Adolf Hitler while arguing that such “bad people” shouldn’t be given a platform.

During their nightly hand-off, his primetime colleague Chris Cuomo began by describing 2020 as the most “definitional” election in his lifetime. Lemon appeared to attempt to shame Trump supporters, and asked them if they will “continue to fall for the o-ke-doke.” But then he questioned the media’s responsibilities in covering Trump’s candidacy.

The “CNN Tonight” anchor urged Cuomo to “think about the most despicable people in history” and warned him that he was going to use an “extreme example.”
