Three men down … Three CNN employees, from their much-touted “investigative team,” have resigned their positions after botching a story last week regarding Trump associates’ supposed ties to a Russian investment firm. The story was later retracted. I highlighted the mess in yesterday’s email. Speaking of which, the Buzzfeed link about the ordeal was incorrect yesterday. Here it is.
CNN host thinks we should praise CNN … CNN media critic and host of “Reliable Sources” Brian Stelter thinks the proper response from conservative publications should be praise of CNN for the move. In his daily email, Stelter discussed how two conservative columnists were impressed with what CNN did to correct the situation and then called out other conservatives for not being pleased. Sorry, Brian, you guys bring this on yourself – all … the … time.
O’Keefe strikes … James O’Keefe and his team at Project Veritas got a CNN supervising producer to admit that CNN’s Russia coverage is all about “ratings.” And that they “don’t have any big giant proof.” The producer, John Bonifield, also added that President Trump is right to say the media is “witch hunting me.” Watch the video, and catch my take at Conservative Review.
How do we stop the mainstream media from warping the national narrative? We push back together. With the truth. Be the first to receive CRTV’s free weapon against the worst the media has to offer. Introducing WTF MSM!?
Really, I do … On Monday, NBC’s national correspondent Peter Alexander tweeted: “HAPPENING NOW: This is today's White House press briefing that you will not see. TV cameras, again, not allowed.” Attached to the tweet was a picture. Of the briefing. That anyone with functioning eyes could see.
More “Trump causes violence” porn on MSNBC … Despite the documented increasing incidents of left-wing violence against Americans, MSNBC had Rep. Keith Ellison, D.-Minn., on to talk about the Scalise shooting on Monday. Ellison blamed Trump’s language. He did not blame Antifa, or roving bands of students, or any of the other things from his fellow travelers. No, he assigned blame to Donald Trump for creating an environment where Steve Scalise gets shot.
They seem surprised … A study came out proving what anyone who understands Econ. 101 knows, that raising the minimum wage hurts minimum-wage workers. They lose hours and income. The Washington Post’s “Wonk Blog” published the results and made sure to add the words “very credible” to the title. Because when conservatives talk about this, it apparently isn’t credible.
