    Greenwald gets it about right. He does that now and then.

  • Lurker

    All these years CNN saying they were non partisan & down the middle ALL ruined by TRUMP
    LOVE IT! lol

    • Larry Kelly

      He just got them to come out of the closet. I always could detect the mendacity.

      • Cecelia

        CNN wishes to undo a presidential election it thinks was decided by cretins.

        The Manadrin-Class at CNN and elsewhere, has been apoplectic in its discovery of such a loss of control.

        This class wishes to rule over our national life and to mute all dissent.

  • Larry Kelly

    Zucker would have preferred to go for racism or rape, but “bullying” will have to do.

    Jim Acosta determined to be the CNN’s Fake News King –

    CNN’s Jim Acosta gets fact about intelligence community’s Russia assessment wrong, calls it ‘fake news’

    CNN’s Acosta slammed for saying Trump held ‘fake news conference’

  • Minnesota Nice

    CNN’s Zucker once again is going to try to play the victim card. Luckily nobody is buying it, except his lacky Stelter.

  • Saintsfan720

    If true that Kazynski’s (sp?) home address was made public, that is wrong just as CNN’s ridiculous behavior towards the Gif creator was wrong. It’s only been a couple of weeks since Rep Scalise was shot. Looks like all calls for more civility in political rhetoric have been completely forgotten.

    • Cecelia

      I agree entirely with this being wrong.

      I thought it was appropriate tit-for-tat when that was done to the staffers at that newspaper which published all the names and addresses of people who were on local gun registeries, but I don’t see why it was necessary here.

      • GATXER

        I saw it on twitter….all that was released is what was available by just typing in his name in google.

        • Cecelia

          The availability of the info isn’t the point. To compile it into a list is still exposure.

          • GATXER

            I agree with you no reason to do it…………….but they didn’t really compatible it ….they just did a screen print of a site that does that to almost everyone in the usa

            came from here:

            https://www.spokeo.com/Jim-Acosta

          • Cecelia

            At a particularly incendiary point in time.

          • GATXER

            I agree no reason to do it…..but they didn’t have a staff of reporters track his address down and blackmail him….that was CNN.
            if CNN wanted to stop they anti-cnn memes….the messed up big time.

            take a look at this Ive seen some really fun ones.

          • Cecelia

            Who is this “they”?

          • GATXER

            Dont know for sure……..The one I saw came from reddit………but if you go to spokeo you can look anyone up…….they just did a screen print from it………took them @10 seconds.

            Sucks that they did it…..but not even close to what CNN did.

          • Cecelia

            The motive is precisely the same as that of CNN with no particularly good reason for it.

  • Saintsfan720

    On a different topic (but speaking of heated rhetoric), anyone know what the Twitter back and forth between Greg Gutfeld and Cheri Jacobus is about? Both seem pretty fired up!

  • GATXER

    Its a weird week when you turn on MSNBC and a Elected Democrat is on talking about how they must defend states rights and the host isn’t having a stroke……….then you remember Trumps president and suddenly states rights matter again.

  • GATXER

    I might agree with Jim Acosta on letting “friendly” reporters ask questions if I could forget the entire Obama years and the fact that a Obama appointee wasn’t hosting a news program on CNN right now.

    • Larry Kelly

      Did John Harwood ever ask Obama a non-puff question?

    Fitting that America’s Newsroom is in the 1-2-3 for fourth of July…

  • sky303

    So CNN instead of doing some news , decided to waste some resources to find a man who made a gif of them the president happened to use, he also did some other things on reddit too, but they went through all that , instead of doing some news stories of matter instead of president tweets gif. They also did more coverage of President tweets about MSNBC hosts than MSNBC did. CNN under Zucker has been take one thing and run it into the ground (it started with the plane)

    I wonder why a Fox News Channel news show is using a conservative pundit as a substitute anchor?

    misses that on CNN @ same time a OBAMA appointee was a filling as the news anchor

      I could be wrong. Mr. Freeze might actually be stupider than Andy.

    Fox has suspended Charles Payne amid allegations of sexual harassment –

    http://www.latimes.com/business/hollywood/la-fi-ct-charles-payne-fox-business-20170706-story.html

    In short, allegedly Payne was carrying on an affair with an unnamed contributor for 2-3 years. After the affair ended, the contributor is alleging that her appearances on the network dried up.

  • Larry Kelly

    Mr. Concha on Tucker did a prosecutor’s summation of CNN’s messups that Clarence Darrow couldn’t save them from a guilty verdict.
