CNN President: ‘We Are Not Investigators’

A shocking display of honesty from Jeff Zucker.

Published

on

CNN’s president went to work spinning his network’s embarrassing coverage of the RussiaGate conspiracy theory, and offered up a surprisingly candid excuse for the cable titan’s failures.

“We are not investigators. We are journalists, and our role is to report the facts as we know them, which is exactly what we did,” Jeff Zucker told New York Times.

What exactly are “the facts as we know them?” Is that the new standard for reporting the news? Facts are facts. Determining whether something is a fact takes investigation. Splitting the two – reporting and investigating – is impossible.

This obvious truth was not lost on many of CNN’s critics.

“Wow. Good on CNN for just coming right out and admitting it. They don’t investigate. This is what I have been saying, they basically just read press releases and tweets,” reporter Tim Pool said on Twitter.

Pool, for the record, is not exactly a right-winger.

Donald Trump Jr. had some thoughts on CNN’s bogus excuse-making, too.

“I knew had low standards after watching multiple stories blow up in their face, but now journalists don’t have an obligation to investigate news before they report? Hate to break it to Zucker’s propaganda czar , but CNN is a national embarrassment,” he said.

Investigation and verification of facts are inseparable from reporting and journalism. CNN cannot wriggle its way out of the fact – so to speak – that the network took Trump’s guilt in its made up conspiracy theory as a foregone conclusion.

For that, it lost what little credibility it had left, and deservedly so.

CRINGE: CNN State Media Opines of “Joe Biden’s Arms Embracing America”

Embarrassing.

Published

on

CNN daytime host David Chalian spoke of Joe Biden in worshipful terms in a Tuesday segment, claiming that a display of lights intended to memorialize COVID casualties represented the 78-year old President-elect embracing the United States in his arms.

Chalian claimed that President Trump was disgraced, ignoring the fact that polls with a track record of accuracy in the 2020 election reveal the outgoing President’s approval rating is over 50%.

“Those lights that are just shooting out from the Lincoln Memorial… It’s almost like extensions of Joe Biden’s arms embracing America. It’s a moment where the new President came to town and convened the country in this moment of remembrance, outstretching his arms.”

Is this the incoming President, or Chalian’s father? North Korean state propaganda would be jealous.

Joe Biden has opted for the light display in the absence of an inauguration crowd, with the incoming President eschewing a traditional inauguration on account of coronavirus concerns. It’s expected that Biden will speak of ‘unity’ in his Wednesday address, but such a goal is more easily attained through action than through words.

CNN is poised to take on the role of a state propaganda outlet, carrying water for the neoliberal establishment and the globalist elite. Figures within the mainstream media organization expect its ratings and audience to crumble and decline, no longer possessing a captivated liberal audience eager for content targeting President Trump with predictable hitpieces.
