Via News Busters
CNN has blurred any distinction between reporting and editorializing not only on television, but also on their own website. On Thursday, CNN Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr raged against President Trump just like every other correspondent and host on CNN….this time in a commentary on CNN’s online opinion page.
Starr is employing the usual cant about how free speech and a free press is a core value of America that our Soldiers are sworn to die to defend. Therefore, once again, CNN and their Obama-loving, Hillary-voting pals are the embodiment the First Amendment and anyone who resists their propaganda is opposed to freedom:
……”At what was supposed to be a presidential speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars this week, the President, as he almost always does, attacked the media, saying, “Don’t believe the crap you see from these people — the fake news.” Many in the audience cheered. And Dunford had just been there the day before. The VFW scolded its members on their reaction to Trump, saying it relies on the media to cover veteran’s issues.
But there had been a little noticed, more worrisome incident. In March, Trump appeared at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar near San Diego. Speaking before hundreds of marines, he again pointed to reporters covering the speech and called them “fake news,” leading hundreds of uniformed personnel to applaud wildly for a political statement attacking a press corps they are sworn to defend….”
……In the cockeyed liberal logic of CNN and Starr, Mattis and Dunford need to condemn the president (and defend CNN) or we have politicized the military.
At the risk of being just as repetitive as CNN, we should remind the Pentagon brass that CNN falsely accused the U.S. military of gassing Laotians during the Vietnam War.
CNN channeled Iraqi propaganda about America bombing baby-formula factories.
CNN couldn’t show enough Abu Ghraib photos worldwide as it explained how each image was a terrorist recruitment poster.
CNN broadcast grainy footage of terrorists calling themselves the Islamic Army of Iraq showing their snipers time and again shooting and presumably killing American soldiers, to demoralize the folks at home. There’s even more listed here.
Newsflash for Starr: There are good reasons why you have zero credibility and even less sympathy from the public.
For the entire length of Barky’s corrupt regime, the media had its lips firmly planted on his ass. The only exception is Fox News, which refused to kowtow to his emperor complex. While the main stream media dutifully performed fellatio on Obama, Fox News hit the SCOAMF right between the eyes with well deserved scathing criticism.
The Cult of the Black Jesus Obama was in full swing for Obama’s presidential campaigns. An infatuated male CNN correspondent wrote love letters to Obama and kept an archive. Evan Thomas deified him. Brian Williams usually brought knee pads for Obama interviews. Chris Matthews got ‘a thrill going up his leg’ every time he heard Obama speak. Curtis Sittenfeld, ( a female by the way) loves, loves, loves Obamessiah so much, she’d suck his dick if she had the chance. It’s some of the most disturbing, perverted behavior ever displayed by leftwing media.
Obama and his media tools were infuriated that Fox News was the one holdout; the one network they couldn’t control or get to cooperate with the Party Line.
Dear Leader didn’t like to be contradicted.
In 2011, he launched an “Attack Watch” department to supplement his Ministry of Truth , to counteract “unfavorable stories”. His media tools at MSNBC are all too glad to oblige. One notable event took place during an MSNBC ‘Morning Joe’ broadcast, which featured a discussion of the White House targeting Fox News. An email arrived from the White House on the air to ‘correct them’ about an exchange between former WH spokesperson Robert Gibbs and Jake Tapper. One of the commentators, Mika Brezinsky actually made the ‘correction’.
Any opposition to the media’s barrage of bullshit is met with self-righteous accusations from assclowns like Starr who think the military exists to goose step to the leftwing party line and not have differing opinions.
The military is sworn to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, including the free speech rights of military personnel and veterans who don’t buy their rhetoric.
See how that works?
