Dunce’s cap for Russiagate coverage should go to CNN (by George Galloway)

If there was a dunce’s cap awarded to the most gullible – or worse, complicit – news outfit in the whole ‘Russiagate’ affair, it would surely go to CNN.

The small consolation is that its ratings have plummeted in direct proportion to its fake news agenda. Unless trapped in a hotel room in Ulan Bator and having already read the Gideon’s Bible, nobody in their right mind goes looking for CNN.

However, other media do, of course, amplify their prevailing narrative. This is that the Democratic Party didn’t lose because they chose the only person in America who could possibly lose to Donald Trump, but because a bearded man with snow on his boots smelling of vodka and speaking with a thick Russian accent fooled everyone into voting for the GOP. And where no such man can be identified, then a Western cipher can be demonized as his proxy.

So unhinged has CNN – the last hold-out of the Russiagaters – become that they have now piled new levels of ordure on the political prisoner Julian Assange in a much touted “Special,” heaping speculation upon speculation on what they hope is the coffin of a man they once lionized.

Because, dear readers, in a now-forgotten coincidence, it was CNN that in a way brought Julian Assange into the public limelight. They interviewed him a number of times, including once in 2010, when they sent their team to showcase the then-pale-blonde ascetic wonderkid of the whistleblowing business. That was way before RT had aired Assange’s show ‘The World Tomorrow’ – because that suited CNN’s agenda then, in the way that burying him does now.

Full disclosure: Julian Assange is a friend of mine and so opportunists seeking his crucifixion to serve an anti-Trump agenda cut no ice with me. Furthermore, I work for RT, and know personally the fine broadcasting professionals traduced in a disgraceful way by the CNN “Special.”

Julian Assange was hiding in plain sight by having his own show on RT. That’s how espionage works nowadays in the fevered minds of CNN. And he appeared on news shows throughout the world – any one of which could have “passed him a USB drive” when they went into the Ecuador Embassy to film him. He even appeared on my show on TalkRadio, whose proprietor could of course be a (deep) undercover Russian agent.

The fatal flaw in all of this, of course, is that the DNC computers were never hacked in the first place, not by a “master-hacker” or even a schoolboy in his bedroom. That’s why their servers were never examined by the FBI, Mueller or anybody else wearing any kind of official badge.

The scandalous behavior – including CNN’s own (now Fox) contributor Donna Brazile – through which the Democratic Party rigged their own Primary process to defeat Bernie Sanders and procure the coronation of the aforementioned Mrs Clinton was not hacked but leaked. Not by Russians but by Americans. Not by RT but by Democratic Party insiders, disgusted as they should have been at the shameless Tammany Hall shenanigans going on in their party.

The real target of fading, failing, flailing CNN was not Julian Assange but Donald Trump. His administration is currently trying to incarcerate Assange in the gulags of the US injustice system for the crime of publishing the truth. That’s the real scandal.

 

NEWSDon Lemon ‘Hot Mic’ Moment Highlights How CNN Helps Democrat Politicians

By

CNN host Don Lemon was caught on a hot mic congratulating Democrat presidential aspirant Cory Booker, exposing yet again how CNN actively works to help the Democrat politicians the network ostensibly is covering.

Here is the gaffe, which says all you need to know about the seriousness of Lemon’s interviewing skills. “Nice job,” Lemon tells Booker:

Fox News’ Donna Brazile says she will “forever regret” leaking the 2016 presidential debate questions to Hillary Clinton from her perch as a CNN contributor.

But that’s just CNN’s modus operandi. Their motto at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, after all, was “unmatched access.”

Behold this clip of Larry King telling then-candidate Bill Clinton in 1992 — also on a hot mic during a commercial break — that CNN boss Ted Turner would “serve” Clinton after Clinton’s election to office.

Paul Ryan, NBC Executive Will Serve on Board of Fox News’ Parent Company

By

The new parent company of Fox News has chosen its board members, and some of them are highly questionable.

According to several Tuesday morning reports, former “Republican” Speaker of the House of Representatives Paul Ryan is among the group. The failed 2012 Vice Presidential candidate has been friends with the Murdoch family – owners of Fox – for years.

“Ryan and three other board of directors were appointed on Tuesday. It was a necessary step as the Murdoch family wraps up the Disney-Fox deal,” according to CNN. “Disney is acquiring most of 21st Century Fox, including its movie studio and entertainment cable channels.

The parts of Fox that are not being acquired by Disney will be a standalone entity, simply called Fox, the report said. Fox will be the parent company of Fox News, according to the report.

Trending: Fox News Hires Donna Brazile After Suspending Judge Jeanine

The other notable board member of the new Fox is Rolando Hernandez. Hernandez is the CEO of Telemundo, the Spanish-speaking news organization owned by NBC.

The new announcements come as Fox viewers are particularly miffed at the network. The company suspended Judge Jeanine Pirro for non-controversial comments about Sharia Law, and then subsequently hired former Democratic National Committee head Donna Brazile as a commentator. Both signify a move towards the political left.

Big League Politics reported:

The former head of the Democratic National Committee who ensured that Hillary R. Clinton won the party’s presidential nomination in 2016 has joined Fox News, just days after the network announced that Judge Jeanine Pirro’s show would be cancelled for this entire week.

“I fully admit that in my previous lives as a campaign staffer, presidential campaign manager and Democrat Party official, my own lack of civility in the heat of battle has been on full display. And it wasn’t pretty,” Donna Brazile said in an op-ed explaining why she joined the network.

“Brazile, a veteran Democratic strategist, will offer political analysis across both FNC and FOX Business Network’s daytime and primetime programming,” according to a statement by the network.

An admitted leftist who has fought to destroy conservatism has now joined the ranks of the formerly-conservative network. It is another move towards the left for the the network, which has effectively become CNN-lite.

CNN, Democratic Party accused of conspiring against Sanders with ‘stacked’ audience at Q&A event

Screen Shot 2019-03-01 at 6.14.50 PM

CNN and the Democratic Party have been accused of trying to sabotage Bernie Sanders after the network masked the political affiliations of audience members who pelted the senator with questions during a town hall event.

The Vermont senator found himself bogged down in complicated policy issues – and apologies – after fielding questions from audience members whose political loyalties and possible ulterior motives were obscured by CNN. The eyebrow-raising oversight was first spotted by Paste Magazine, which accused CNN, in concert with the Democratic Party, of “stacking” the audience against Sanders by not being upfront about who was tasked with asking the senator questions.

For example, a young woman identified by CNN as a student at American University suggested that Sanders had turned a blind eye to his campaign’s alleged sexist behavior during the 2016 primaries, and asked what the democratic socialist would do to make women feel more included in his 2020 presidential bid. Curiously, the network failed to disclose that the student also happens to be an intern at a major DC lobbying firm – an odd coincidence considering her question was adapted from a Sanders-bashing talking point popular among corporate-friendly Democrats.

CNN was similarly tight-lipped about the backgrounds of other audience members selected to interrogate Sanders.

One audience member labeled as a “George Washington student” was later revealed to be an intern for a Democratic fundraising organization, the Katz Watson Group, and was previously a campaign fellow for ‘Hillary Clinton for America’.

Town hall moderator Wolf Blitzer introduced another audience member as a mother of two who is “active in the Maryland Democrat Party.” It turns out the innocuous mom was actually the chair of her county’s Democratic Central Committee.

CNN conceded that it should have been more transparent about its question-askers.

“Though we said at the beginning of the Town Hall that the audience was made up of Democrats and Independents, we should have more fully identified any political affiliations,” the network said in a statement.

Edward Hall, an economist and co-founder of the Occupy Wall Street movement, told RT that CNN’s deceptive identification practices were “par for the course” and part of a “long-running disease” in US politics, which uses in-fighting to protect corporate interests.

This isn’t the first time that CNN has given Sanders a raw deal. In one notable example, the network was taken to task for declaring Clinton the Democratic candidate even though, at the time, she lacked the required number of pledged delegates to clinch the nomination. Emails published by WikiLeaks famously revealed that CNN contributor Donna Brazile passed town hall debate questions to Hillary Clinton during her 2016 primary against the Vermont lawmaker.
