Where’s the Proof?

Featured image Speaker Kevin McCarthy has announced the commencement of an impeachment inquiry. In response, the Biden administration wrote its press lackeys, instructing them in how they should cover the proceedings: “Covering impeachment as a process story – Republicans say X, but the White House says Y – is a disservice to the American public who relies on the independent press to hold those in power accountable,” Sams wrote in the letter, »

This Is CNN

Featured image Check out this remarkable exchange between CNN’s Fareed Zakaria and Joe Biden. Is there a single person in the USA who holds the view of Biden described by Zakaria?

Trump vs. CNN

Featured image Donald Trump’s “town hall” appearance on CNN last night has liberals gnashing their teeth. They don’t understand why CNN would give Trump a forum, they are appalled that the audience was in Trump’s corner, and they are frustrated that Trump dominated the event, with CNN’s Kaitlan Collins unable to keep Trump under control, let alone embarrass him. Inevitably, CNN’s host ignored the pressing issues of the day and went straight »

Report: CNN Banned Lab Leak Investigation

Featured image Fox News reports that a “well-placed CNN insider” says the network’s then-president Jeff Zucker told staffers not to investigate the “lab leak theory” behind the origins of COVID-19 because he thought it was a “Trump talking point.” Take it for what it is worth, since the “well-placed insider” is not identified. (Not that that would stop CNN.) But it has a ring of truth. Over the last six years, “news” »

The Round Mound of Commentary?

Featured image Rumor has it that NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley may be going to work for CNN. CNN staffers are not happy about it: Page Six has confirmed that execs have been in talks with the NBA legend and longtime broadcaster about appearing on the news channel in hope he can help the numbers to rebound.

Lowlights of the Day

Featured image It wasn’t a great day for news.

CNN Blues

Featured image The New York Times has a lengthy piece on Chris Licht’s brief but troubled tenure as the CEO of CNN. The article is sympathetic and somewhat revealing. This comes near the top: A chorus of media pundits has pounced on every tidbit of bad news. Mr. Licht’s early programming efforts aimed at repositioning the network as broader and less partisan have prompted howls of criticism, with former MSNBC host and »

Who Owns Science?

Featured image Science is a method that can, in principle, be practiced by anyone. So no one can “own” it. But don’t tell that to the United Nations and the World Economic Forum. This is chilling: Melissa Fleming, Under-Secretary for Global Communications at the United Nations at [World Economic Forum] ‘Disinformation’ event: “We partnered with Google,” said Fleming, adding, “for example, if you Google ‘climate change,’ you will, at the top of »

Stelter Goes to Harvard

Featured image Brian Stelter was fired by CNN as part of the network’s effort to shift its image away from far left commentary and toward mainstream news coverage. While at CNN, Stelter used his platform to aggressively promote Democratic Party themes, and in particular to make war on CNN’s more successful rival, Fox News. But Stelter has landed on his feet: he is going to Harvard. Stelter broke the news on social »

Trump Sues the B*stards

The lawyers’ letter, with exhibits, is long, but its point is simple. The »

Tweet of the Day, Schadenfreude Edition

Featured image We wrote here about the financial bloodbath at CNN+, which is shaping up as one of the great media disasters of all time. Poor Chris Wallace! He didn’t want to be associated with people who don’t hate Donald Trump, so now he is associated with people whom no one wants to watch. In fact, he seems to have become one of them. But I digress. Here is the tweet, from »

CNN+: A Bomb of Epic Proportions

Who’s Toobin who?

Featured image CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin appeared as the keynote speaker at our Cardozo Society dinner in 2009. I had the opportunity to have an unpleasant conversation with him during the happy hour before the dinner. He must be one of the most repulsive people I have ever met, and that was long before Toobin was exposed, well, you know the rest. Let’s just say exposed sufficiently to get himself »

How Corrupt Is CNN? [Updated]

Featured image We have known for a long time that CNN is, to put it politely, sub-par in the intelligence department. But, through revelations about Chris Cuomo, we are learning more about the corruption that seems to prevail in that company. Was it really a secret from everyone at CNN that Cuomo was collaborating with his brother to smear “that Fox weather bitch” who exposed the thousands of deaths for which Andy »

Goodbye, Chris
