CNN’s Anderson Cooper ran a segment on his show “Anderson Cooper 360” Thursday night polling women on whether they believed Judge Brett Kavanaugh or his sexual misconduct accuser.
“By show of hands, how many of believe Judge Kavanaugh when he says this didn’t happened,” asked CNN’s Randi Kaye to five Republican women.
All of them raised their hands in support of the Supreme Court Nominee.
“How can we believe the word of a woman on something that happened 36 years ago when this guy has an impeccable reputation,” asked Lourdes Castillo de la Peña. “There is nobody who has spoke ill-will about him. Everyone that speaks about him, this guy’s an alter boy, you know a Scout. Because one woman made an allegation, I’m sorry I don’t buy it.”
“In the grand scheme of things there was no intercourse,” said Irina Villarino. “There was maybe a touch. Can we really, 36 years later – she’s still stuck on that, had it happened?”
When asked why the accuser would come forward, considering the damage the accusation has done to her personal life, the women replied in kind.
“She’s also destroying his life, his wife’s life, his children’s lives,” Villarino said. “I mean why didn’t she come out sooner if she’s telling the truth?”
Jim Acosta Calls Conservative Media a “Disinformation-Industrial Complex” and “Potential Existential Threat”
Project much, Jim?
CNN’s Jim Acosta appeared on Brian Stelter’s Sunday morning show “Reliable Sources” to call conservative media a “potential existential threat” that could “cause more suffering.”
Referring to the on-screen graph that shows a significant drop in engagement with Trump-related articles, Stelter asked Acosta if he thought this “quiet period” was temporary. Acosta replied as follows:
“I think it is temporary. I do think what this country faces right now […] I describe it as the disinformation-industrial complex, and that is Trump and his people, conservative outlets like Fox News, and then conservative websites and organizations aligned with the president, and conservative platforms. These three pillars of this disinformation-industrial complex essentially helped put Trump in power, kept him in power, sustained his grip on the Republican Party, and it remains a threat to our democracy. It is the reason why there were hundreds of Trump supporters storming the Capitol on January 6. And until that poison, that toxin, is drained from the national political discourse in this country, Brian, I do think that these forces represent a potential existential threat to this country and have the potential to come back and cause more suffering in the days to come.”
Acosta does not seem to realize, however, that the popularity and influence of right-wing outlets like Big League Politics are direct consequences of “journalists” like him and networks like CNN. They’re the original traffickers in disinformation and in fanning the flames of fearmongering. Alternative conservative media would not have taken off if the mainstream media weren’t so unbearably leftist.
