Gone are the simpler days when CNN hosts told us it was “ILLEGAL” for the general public to possess the Clinton Wikileaks emails. But instead, it’s “different for the media.”
Now the bubble is burst and we know full well that CNN prides itself on manipulating emotions and fear. The last scoops of Project Veritas before they were banished from Twitter showed the world that.
Today CNN darling Chris Cuomo had to man up and admit it was a mistake for him to advise his brother, Andrew, who also happens to be the Governor of New York. A Governor that’s also facing controversy from an avalanche of sexual harassment allegations.
The CNN host said it went against the principles of impartiality in journalism for him to get involved with advising his brother on how to navigate the PR fallout.
"Being a journalist and a brother to a politician is unique and a unique challenge. And I have a unique responsibility to balance those roles,” Cuomo told the audience.
He suffered a 45 percent drop in ratings in recent weeks.
However, that takes us to Cuomo’s colleague, Don Lemon. Who coincidentally decided to also make a statement about what it means to be a journalist.
Lemon does a victory lap about Democrats leading Congress and the White House. "The only party now that is operating in reality is the Democratic Party. The Republican Party is obsolete, the Republican Party is not dealing and living in reality. So you can not negotiate with a party that does not operate on logic.”
At the very least Don Lemon admitted he doesn’t have any meaningful solutions to offer. But then he had this to say after making a fully partisan remark that the Republican Party is all-in-all somehow beyond saving: "I’m not a political person. I’m a person who lives in reality. I’m a journalist."
Don Lemon isn’t a journalist. The CNN host openly fellated former President Obama's career on air while stewing in anger over the very existence of Trump. It’s that same so-called journalist that previously said on-air that Meghan Markle’s lived experiences were enough in charging Britain’s Royal Family of racism, and that we didn’t need to hear their side.
Don Lemon was more than happy to take a significant ratings hit as well, post-Trump. If he doesn’t care about his job performance first and foremost, Don Lemon is no journalist at all.
Both of CNN’s smooth brains said the Black Lives Matter riots were justified in contrast to what happened on January 6th at the US Capitol.
