    Lisa Ling is weird.

      “Weird” seems to be a prerequisite for employment at ZNN.

    “blistering twitter reactions” – Twitter Storms bring out the 6 year old child in people.

    • Sometimes I change the wording of a link because I need more space to add something, or I think of a more appropriate wording. I originally said ‘blistering’ twitter reactions, then changed it to ‘pointed’: gave me a little more space to add the ‘more’ link + better described the reactions IMHO.

      • Grandpa D

        I followed your lead and edited. 🙂

        • No problemo. Just thought it was an opportunity to explain why the link wording can sometimes change thru the course of the day.

  • I don’t want to go overboard with Stelter links today so I’ll use the comments to post this piece where Brian talks about Trump’s racist dog whistles and you can do with it as you will.

      Stelter is a tool.

    • GATXER

      I guess “white Hispanic” is not in force for this story.

      Brian Stelter is a media critic, so its ridiculous CNN uses him for political commentary, especially based on his total lack of experience/education in politics. I guess since Zuckers is known to dial into the CNN control room, he is able to speak to his known lackey via earpiece to give him talking points.

      • Over a week he probably gets more air time than most of their regular anchors do. He pops up everywhere from pre-dawn to late-night, opining on every subject under the sun. Not to make this a Stelter bash-a-rama but you don’t see Howard Kurtz on a dozen times a day commenting on everything from A to Z and beyond. I’m starting to think the Saturation Stelter strategy is designed to force CNN viewers to see him as a familiar face, to help his Sunday morning ratings. And that seems to have worked.

        • Minnesota Nice

          I would gladly host a Stelter b-a-r. My main beef with Stelter is he is not a journalist, he is a opinionizer. Much what he says isn’t based on fact, but his and Zuckers opinion and biases.

          • You must be mistaken. CNN doesn’t do opinion. I know that’s true because Don Lemon said it.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            There is something that Don Lemon doesn’t know from shinola, but I can’t remember what it is.

          • Cecelia

            To Brian Stelter the media is democracy’s phalanx against corruption. Holy Crusaders of truth… standing against the ignorance and tyranny of any redneck who criticizes them…

            Unless it’s Fox. With Fox, Stelter becomes the world’s biggest media critic/cheapshot artist.

          • Larry Kelly

            Zucker’s Pillsbury Dough Boy might take note that Holy Crusaders pretty much have a track record of being on the wrong side of history.

  • GATXER

    That Stelter tweet got a response that CNN is losing to the cat in the hat……..was great.

  • Seuss is misspelled.

    Why the disgraced racist ICEMAN has lost it example #44574646

    Whines Fox news is covering NK before PR at 9am

    Fox News finds #NorthKorea more important than Puerto Rico not doing a full report from #PuertoRico till 12:09 PM
    https://twitter.com/IceManNYR/status/914160983052087297

    Then at at 10am same thing
    FOX News starts their 12 PM hour with North Korea does quick report on Trump’s attack on #PuertoRico then goes back to #NorthKorea.
    https://twitter.com/IceManNYR/status/914174411560931328

    Then Fox News covers PR first and he says this:
    At 2 PM FOX News deems Trump’s attacks on the San Juan mayor more important to cover first before covering North Korea.

    • Heads I win, tails you lose. Classic newshounds dishonesty.

        Doing the same old crap year after year after year. Surprised he doesn’t put himself to sleep.

  • Mr Concha is coming up on Watters World.

    Judge Jeanine’s Opening Statement was powerful as usual last night but her news maker was the interview with Jason Chaffetz that excoriated Jeff Sessions. She got him to admit some damaging things about the current DOJ. I am hoping for follow up on the controversy this week

      Jeff Sessions is a dunce.

    Players that kneel, raise fists or otherwise protest should be expelled from the league. Any owner involved should be informed that his team will not be allowed to be involved in next year’s draft.
