One thing we all have to love about CNN under Jeff Zucker is that they can always be counted on to do the wrong thing. Case in point… In yesterday's bombshell CNN story — no, not that one, this one — the story where CNN pretends it has done the correct thing in separating itself from the three fake journalists responsible for publishing fake journalism about the fake Trump/Russia story, the leftwing cable news network slips another piece of fake news in there, a defiant piece of fake news that is itself quite obviously fake news…
In a staff meeting Monday afternoon, investigative unit members were told that the retraction did not mean the facts of the story were necessarily wrong.
Yes, you read that correctly. Despite a full-retraction of the fake news, an apology to one of the targets of the fake news, and CNN losing three top members of its investigative team over the fake news, CNN is still publicly proclaiming that its fake news could be true.
This is what you call the full-Dan Rather, the fake but true defense that proves beyond any doubt that the levers of our establishment media are now in the hands of zealots and witch hunters, unconcerned with facts or truth, dismissive of common decency, and interested only in personally destroying those on the political right they see as something not-quite-human.
CNN, however, is something unique, as I said above, something that can always be counted on to do the wrong thing…
If there is a severed head of Donald Trump available, you can bet a CNN star will hold it up to the world.
If someone somewhere once called for a Republican lawmaker to be raped, you can bet CNN will hire him.
If there is a play going on somewhere that washes itself in the blood of President Trump, you can bet Jeff Zucker's employer sponsors it, you can bet his employees declare it a "masterpiece."
If there's a guy who believes 12 year-old girls should be exposed to naked men against their will, you can bet he works for CNN.
If what looks like a sniper scope is being pointed at the White House, you can bet it belongs to CNN.
If a joke is being told about Trump's plane crashing, you can bet it's being told on CNN.
If someone is openly calling for a riots in a poor, black neighborhood, you can bet it is being called for on CNN.
If a phony dossier that CNN knows is phony is being dropped into the world solely as a means to humiliate a Republican president, you can bet the man CNN considers its Precious Conscience is behind it.
And now we have a confession on video of what we have always known — that CNN knows the Trump/Russia hoax is a hoax but pushes it anyway…
…a confession that CNN would never apply the same level of "scrutiny" to Obama:
I think if we would have behaved that way with President Obama, and scrutinized everything that he was doing with as much scrutiny as we apply to Donald Trump, I think our viewers would’ve been turned off. I think they would have felt like we were attacking him.
... a confession that CNN treating Obama with kid gloves and serially-lying about Trump is driven solely by Jeff Zucker's desire to please the Left.
I think that there are a lot of like, liberal CNN viewers who want to see Trump really get scrutinized[.]
CNN could not attract more than 711K viewers last week.
CNN is in a credibility death spiral.
Even Trump can't resist piling on.
And if you want to finish off CNN (and save money doing so!), this is the only way that will ever happen.
