Russia, Russia Russia and CNN. What could go better? Add Kellyanne Conway. In a bruising thirty plus commercial free knock down, CNN and the absurd interview that occured should move the needle on their ratings down even further. CNN Now Losing To Nick-At-Nite In Prime Time Ratings War
Better yet, Tucker Carlson has the low lights of the interview. I give you his take on the action, and if you have any interest in the complete absurdity of CNN, the second video will do it.
Tucker Carlson Rips Apart Chris Cuomo For His Ridiculous Interview With Kellyanne Conway
Here is the full thirty minute interview in this absurd commercial free interview with Chris Cuomo.
The buzz yesterday because CNN was on the ropes over the threatening of someone who dared to create a anti CNN Gif on twitter, later picked up by Trump, was amazing. Because the world got to see how perverse CNN was. First I give you a short clip with Tammy Bruce expressing exactly how bizarre it was, then the amazed folks at CNN.
But for some reason, CNN host Alisyn Camerota expressed surprise and delight that the guy who created the video of Donald Trump taking down someone with the CNN logo superimposed on his face has apologized — after CNN unmasked him and tracked him down.
As Mike Lachance has reported, CNN tracked down the clip creator and threatened to dox him—to expose his identity and location—if he backed off his apology.
CNN and other media are pushing the line that if was proper to unmask the guy because he also had racist and anti-Semitic anonymous posts. But that’s not why CNN did this. CNN tracked the guy down because he creating a GIF mocking CNN, that then was used by CNN’s arch enemy, Trump.
Camerota is either extremely naive—or extremely cynical. Co-host Chris Cuomo wasn’t so wide-eyed, telling Camerota “when exposed, and identified, he then decided to apologize.”
But Camerota wouldn’t quit her Pollyanna impersonation, saying that she saw the apology as a possible “glimmer of hope.”
But it wasn’t the addendum. CNN threatened him that if he ever did it again, they would expose him, thus putting him at risk for what they already agreed would happen. Blackmail. That is what it is.
Maybe someone could forward this tidbit of information over to the Clinton Crime Network aka CNN just for the facts. Acosta is having a meltdown as well as many of his colleagues in trying to determine fact from fiction. Or rather, whether they should even bother to care, I give you this:
With mainstream media reporters telling their audiences that the end is nigh over the Trump White House decision to hold fewer press briefings on camera, few are mentioning that the move is not without precedent — with President Bill Clinton’s White House turning off the cameras in the ’90s because they weren’t “necessary.”
Dee Dee Myers in 1993 on why Clinton White House stopped on-camera briefings
But a March 1993 C-SPAN interview with then-White House Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers is putting a wrench in that particular narrative. In that interview, Myers said they stopped allowing cameras for White House briefings conducted by Communications Director George Stephanopoulos as they weren’t “really necessary.”
She noted that there were multiple briefings where cameras were allowed, and even the beginning of Stephanopoulos’s briefing was on-camera, but that the presence of cameras meant that the briefings were less productive.
“The briefing is more an opportunity to exchange ideas and to have a conversation about what’s happening,” Myers said, in a similar argument made presently by Trump administration officials. “That wasn’t really happening in a way that … as productively as we had hoped. H/T: Breitbart

This pic is priceless. We were led to believe the election was going to be a nail biter… maybe a recount. Once again. American wants to make America Great Again! Pajama boy goes back to his parents house and learns the 6th district red carpet isn’t out for him. Shades of November CNN.
Legal insurrection summed it up with my observation and description precisely:

As I often do on election nights when Democratic disappointment is likely to be highest, I watched MSNBC. First I watched Rachel Maddow, then Lawrence O’Donnell.
The MSNBC coverage was nothing short of delusional. The “a loss is really a win” approach was pervasive. Hope sprang eternal.
Maddow in particular continued to spin Trump Russia conspiracy theories. O’Donnell went on and on about how the Republican healthcare bill would be the doom of Republicans. A phrase used frequently on O’Donnell’s show was that this was an “ominous win” for Republicans because the margin was lower than when Tom Price won — ignoring that the Republican outperformed Trump’s win.
CNN was not quite as bad, at least they had on Larry Sabato to make a wake up call for Democrats. But even on CNN, most of the commentary was playing that same “a loss is really a win” theme.
I don’t think Democrats understand that their *Resistance* strategy is not working. But they are so emotionally invested in it, they can’t see their way out.
Hint Sally, if one believes in Sharia one is not Progressive. Amazing isn’t it. How there is zero discussion of exactly what Sharia law entails and specifically how it handles the LGBT Community. Sally’s website says thus which no doubt explains her ignorance:
“a former community organizer who prefers baggy clothes and doesn’t own a television.” — The New York Times
Sally, who is gay and a CNN commentator might want to visit the CNN newsroom, take a look at some videos, especially this one done by CNN and watch how Sharia law deals with the LGBT Community since she doesn’t own a T.V.
Sally Kohn, a former senior strategist at the Soros-funded Center for Community Change, had been hired as a Fox News Contributor previously.
Kohn worked at the Center for Community Change, one of the leading Soros-funded groups, for six years, from 2004—2010. During this period, the group received $5.8 million from Soros’s main vehicle, the Open Society Institute (OSI).
“Sally Kohn makes the world safe for radical ideas,” her website says. In fact, Kohn is a far-left radical who attended the 2003 World Social Forum in Brazil, a meeting place for groups which say they are opposed to capitalism and U.S. imperialism.

Something today that might put a smile on your face as Debbie Wasserman-Shultz, head of the DNC spins spins to the point of absurdity. For the first 1:45 minutes she does her thing on Chris Christie. If you don’t have the time, move the clip up as she surpasses her previous idiocy when she defends Obama. Now we know why Christie is on the hot seat. When in doubt, it’s the bridge don’t you know?? Looks like CNN is trying to get back some of their ratings.
From the notes:
Published on Jan 8, 2014
Shortly after big news in the New Jersey traffic scandal broke today, the Democratic National Committee pounced, accusing Christie of engaging in a culture of “retribution” that led to this, despite Christie denying he had no direct knowledge of the scandal. CNN’s Don Lemon asked DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz what the difference is between Christie’s denial of direct knowledge for a scandal and President Obama’s.
Lemon took note of a few scandals where Obama said he had no prior knowledge of a number of scandals his administration faced. “He didn’t know about the NSA spying on allies, he didn’t know about the Obamacare website, he didn’t know that you wouldn’t be able to keep your doctor, so what’s the difference between Christie not knowing at the president not knowing?”
Wasserman-Schultz responded, “The difference is the issue that President Obama said he didn’t know about were policy issues, this is a scandal.” She dismissed the comparison, insisting that Christie has “created a culture in his office” where that type of behavior is permissible and he needs to be held to account for it.
