CNN’s Awful Week: Lies, Meltdowns, Ratings Collapse, New Discrimination Suit
John Nolte
11 Nov 2017

Drudge Report founder Matt Drudge, who knows of what he speaks, dropped a bomb Thursday with the newsy prediction that CNN chief Jeff Zucker is doomed. “Jeff Zucker out either way at CNN,” Drudge wrote before adding, “primetime ratings abysmal. Feud with President Trump too personal and ridiculous…”

Jeff Zucker out either way at CNN, primetime ratings abysmal. Feud with President Trump too personal and ridiculous…

CNN Communications

Replying to @DRUDGE
🙄 CNN is pacing to have its 2nd highest year in primetime since 2008 - behind only 2016 elex year. Those are the facts.
2:56 PM - Nov 9, 2017

If CNN was only in competition with itself and its own dismal ratings, that tweet would make sense. The problem for last-place CNN, though, is that it has actual competition in the form of MSNBC and Fox, both of which are shellacking The Least Trustws Name In News in every conceivable metric.

Moreover, when compared to the same month last year, CNN’s October 2017 ratings collapsed a whopping 52 percent. Meanwhile, Fox News is only down 26 percent, MSNBC down a mere 6 percent.

My reference to “last place” is not a specious one. Until CNN turned into a 24/7 RedBaitingAntiTrumpFakeNewsHateMachine, the left-wing network was in second place, beating MSNBC much more often than not. So not only has CNN lost more than half of its year-over-year viewers, it has lost its bragging rights over its left-wing counterpart at MSNBC.

And things continue to get worse, primarily through unforced errors caused by CNN’s blinding hate and rabid partisanship. Without a doubt, CNN has just suffered through its worst week since those hilarious weeks back in June when CNN staffers had to be fired over hate-sprees against President Trump, and a barrage of firings occurred after the network was caught red-handed telling one audacious lie after another.

To begin with, although CNN and its elite media brethren are covering this news up, on Thursday we learned that CNN is facing yet-another massive racial discrimination lawsuit — a class-action suit. And when you look back and remember the efforts CNN put into stirring up riots in predominantly black neighborhoods, this should surprise no one.

CNN’s public missteps this week, however, left all kinds of bruises.

Last-week Wednesday, in the immediate aftermath of the worst Islamic terror attack in New York since 9/11, and for reasons only clear to him, CNN’s struggling afternoon anchor, Jake Tapper, decided that it was a smart idea to misinform his viewers about the meaning of Allahu Akbar,” and do so in the most inappropriate way imaginable.

To make matters worse, rather than apologize and correct the record, Tapper chose to have a public meltdown over criticism of his inaccurate reporting.

On Monday, CNN’s twisted hatred for Trump red-lined with a double barrel of very fake news. In order to publish a false fact check, CNN deliberately edited out a portion of a Trump quote that would have disproven the fact check. Worse still, with the use of fake video, CNN was caught attempting to fabricate a Trump gaffe involving fish food.

Is a news outlet willing to lie about fish food willing to lie about anything? The asking of the question is your answer. Which brings me to Thursday…

For at least three hours, primarily led by Tapper (who apparently has never found a rake he won’t step on), CNN lied about Trump setting a precedent in China when he chose not to take questions from the media.

To make matters worse, once it was discovered that in 2009 then-President Barack Obama did not take media questions in China, again, rather than apologize and correct, Tapper was caught in a clumsy attempt to try and cover up his fake news fusillade. To his credit, Tapper’s CNN colleague, Jeremy Diamond, did apologize and retract.

Also caught in a scandal is CNN’s Chris Cillizza. With the release of Donna Brazile’s new book, we are learning that, during the 2016 campaign, concerns about Hillary Clinton’s health were legitimate but covered up by both Democrats and a cooperative media. And no one was more cooperative in that regard than Cillizza (who was at the Washington Post at the time).

CNN’s tombstone will read “death by fakenewsicide.” iscrimination-lawsuit-tapper-meltdown/

Speaking of fake news there are some interesting insights in this story (which by the way corroborates my suspicions that Wikileaks is not the impartial actor its reputation claims) 17/11/13/1715302/-Trump-campaign-coordinated-directly-with-Wikileaks-to-push-stolen-emails-provided-by-Russia?

There’s many great stories the press are missing and we’re sure some of your follows [sic] will find it,” Wikileaks went on. “Btw we just released Podesta Emails Part 4.”

Donald Trump himself tweeted, “Very little pick-up by the dishonest media of incredible information provided by WikiLeaks. So dishonest! Rigged system!”


If we publish them it will dramatically improve the perception of our impartiality,” WikiLeaks explained. “That means that the vast amount of stuff that we are publishing on Clinton will have much higher impact, because it won’t be perceived as coming from a ‘pro-Trump’ ‘pro-Russia’ source.” 

So Tromp took the info that the media was "missing" some juicy bits and turned that into "dishonest! Fake!"

And Wikileaks coached the team on how to release a little DT dirt to create an illusion of impartiality.

Charmed, I'm sure🕵
