CNN’s propaganda is used in numerous public school classrooms funded by taxpayers around the United States.
The cable network is under fire after one of its reporters, Andrew Kaczynski, threatened to release personal information about a Reddit user who created the “Trump bodyslams CNN” meme that President Trump slightly modified and tweeted from his official account. The anti-Trump network is considered the leading purveyor of Very Fake News by President Donald Trump and his supporters.
CNN already has a monopoly on airport customers through its “CNN Airport” network that broadcasts in 47 different airports. The U.S. government’s Federal Aviation Administration under President Obama granted CNN special rights to fly drones over American citizens for the purpose of “newsgathering and reporting.”
But CNN’s influence also reaches our children.
“CNN 10” is described by the network as (emphasis added): “a new, 10-minute news show that appears as a daily digital video on CNN.com. CNN 10 replaces CNN Student News, the network’s longest-running show that first aired in 1989. CNN 10 more effectively serves a growing audience interested in compact on-demand news broadcasts ideal for explanation seekers on the go or in the classroom. The show’s priority is to identify stories of international significance and then clearly describe why they’re making news, who is affected, and how the events fit into a complex, international society.”
The CNN Student News “Guided Worksheet” is featured on the websites for various K-12 schools around the country, including public school systems, as a simple Google search can reveal.
Here is the page for the “CNN Student News Graphic Organizer” on the website teacherspayteachers.com. Here are some of the recent comments from teachers (as recently as May 2017):
“This is a helpful tool for CNN kids news. We love it! Great for a sub too!”
“This is a great addition to the notetaking skills we’ve been working on and something that will really help some students focus on the important issues! Love the map idea! Great resource!”
“Great page to help focus my students’ attention when watching CNN student news! Thanks!”
“Love using CNN student news with my middle school kids. This would have been the perfect worksheet to use a couple weeks ago before our big current events project!”
“Exactly what I was looking for to use alongside the video. Thanks!”
“Simple, to the point, fantastic way to keep students accountable for the cnn student news we watch! Thanks for the freebie!”
“So simple, but so awesome! My students write a current events newspaper for our school each week. This will be very helpful in planning their paragraphs! Thank you!”

NY Times Homophobic Cartoon of Trump and Putin Insults More Than Impresses
The New York Times posted a truly bizarre animated short film yesterday on Twitter that was offensive to most people, but for totally different reasons. Some people were offended because it was two world leaders depicted as homosexual lovers, where other people were offended because homosexuality itself was used as the “punch line”. It’s clear this cartoon was not received well by many, and certainly insulted more than it impressed.
The overtly sexual short film, animated by two-time Academy Award-nominated Bill Plympton, was released last month and titled Trump and Putin: A Love Story. NYT Opinion tweeted the cartoon to their 600,000 followers under the caption: “In this episode of Trump Bites, Donald Trump’s not-so-secret admiration for Putin plays out in a teenager’s bedroom where the fantasies of this forbidden romance come to life.”

The animated short film NYT Opinion posted is part two of a three-part series titled “Trump Bites” where real audio clips of President Trump are used to depict what Plympton refers to as “animated fantasies”. Just eight days ago, a Kickstarter campaign was created to raise money towards Plympton’s dream of making “at least a dozen more” short animated films that would be added onto the series. The goal set was $60,000 for 3 more episodes, at the cost of $20,000 per cartoon, citing on the Kickstarter page that “Hand-drawn animation is not cheap” and “due to the sensitive nature of the content, our legal and insurance fees are substantial.” Neil Rosini has been hired on as lawyer for Plympton and his team in preparation for possibly being sued. Eight days into the campaign, and already $33,000 has been raised towards their $60,000 goal to create more in the “Trump Bites” series.
According to the Kickstarter page, other proposed cartoons for future episodes include:
“I would love to be a well-educated black…” Trump experiences the perks of being a black male in America.
“The medical deferment is feet…” What exactly was the problem with Trump’s feet that sidelined him during the Vietnam War? We take you inside the exam room.
“We had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake…” Presidents Trump and Xi frolic in a chocolate dreamscape while missiles fly to “Iraq… I mean Syria.”
The Times’ tweet was absolutely roasted in the comments from followers and those who heard about the disgusting cartoon and wanted to share their thoughts by calling it, “homophobic trash, obscene, garbage, and tasteless.”
The majority who left comments under the NYT Opinion post were baffled that they would attach their name to something as vile as this, with some noting that the homosexual community found it offensive to their cause.
The left want so badly to tarnish the historic meeting between Trump and Putin on Monday that they’re willing to throw an entire community they support under the bus.
LGBTQ activist Brian Sims commented, ““What on Earth makes you think that equating the love that millions of people across the planet feel for one another to the unconscionably criminal relationship between these two is OK?”
Chris Barron, a conservative strategist and key organizer of LGBT for Trump told Fox News that the cartoon is “a disgusting new low” for the New York Times. “Whenever the left wants to lampoon someone on the right they always play the gay card. This is exactly what they think of gay people – that our lives and our relationships are jokes. Something deserving of ridicule and scorn,” Barron said. “Most middle school children behave better than this.”
Curtis Houck, NewsBusters managing editor told Fox News that he doesn’t think the cartoon would have been acceptable during the previous administration, “If someone had done this with Barack Obama and any other male world leader, the calls of homophobia would be overwhelming.” Houck added that the animation was an example of “the lengths to which the media will go to show the public how far advances their cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome are.”
Even the extremely liberal site Vox.com was critical of the Times for the obscene cartoon. German Lopez from a Vox article from July 16th:
“The attempts at humor last year led Andrew Kahn at Slate to warn liberals to stop resorting to such homophobic jokes to attempt to mock Trump and Putin’s apparent camaraderie. Yet these jokes keep popping up, as demonstrated by the Times’s video.
The only way these jokes work is by demeaning gay people and reducing being gay to a punchline. The underlying implication here is that gay relationships are somehow extra funny — that Trump engaging in sexual acts with Putin is hilarious because it’s gay, and that Trump is lowering himself by submitting to sexual acts with another man.
In situations in which liberals are deliberately trying to find ways to insult Trump, it’s telling that they resort to suggesting Trump is engaging in sexual acts with another man. The suggestion is that the worst thing that could happen for these men is for them to engage in homosexual acts together, as if that devalues them as men, makes them submissive, or emasculates them.”

What can we take away from this stunt? The left is willing to exploit an entire community they normally would support if it’s in the name of hating our commander and chief, President of the United States, Donald Trump.
