Politico Defends North Korea and Iran From ‘Mean’ Trump Tweets

Published

on

Politico wrote a bizarre article Tuesday in which it defended North Korea from Tweets written by President Donald J. Trump.

“Trump regularly uses Twitter to heap abuse on his perceived enemies and at times raise the specter of violence, such as when he tweeted last year that if North Korean leaders continued with their rhetoric at the time, ‘they won’t be around much longer!’ Critics say the tweets violate Twitter’s terms of service and warrant punitive action,” Politico said.

The odd defense of the murderous dictatorial regime in North Korea was published in the context of Politico’s report that even the President is not immune from being booted from the platform, according to Twitter legal and policy chief Vijaya Gadde and CEO Jack Dorsey.

“We have to balance it with the context that it’s in,” Dorsey said according to Politico. “So my role is to ask questions and make sure we’re being impartial, and we’re upholding consistently our terms of service, including public interest.”

Politico reported that a Trump Tweet directed at the Iranian government was over the line, and that it “prompted calls for his removal from the platform.”

“NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE,” Trump said in a July Tweet directed at Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

The larger context of the debate is the ongoing censorship of conservative viewpoints by leftist-owned tech giants in Silicon Valley like Facebook, Google and Twitter.

Dorsey is set to testify Wednesday before the House Energy and Commerce committee after an internet backlash over the censorship of conservative ideas on his platform. He was reluctant to testify, but gave in when the committee raised the possibility of a subpoena.

CNN Host Admits He Was “Snookered” By Avenatti After Felony Extortion Conviction

Mainstream media outlets like CNN were instrumental in making Avenatti a political celebrity.

Published

on

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin admitted he felt “snookered” by disgraced attorney Michael Avenatti after the former political celebrity’s felony conviction for extortion on Friday night.

Toobin struck a penitent tone for his own network’s role in promoting the now-convicted felon. Avenatti was a regular on liberal mainstream media outlets such as CNN and MSNBC throughout 2018, frequently boasting of outlandish lawsuits that were set to finally take down President Trump.

In hindsight, after the “creepy porn lawyer’s” dramatic rise and fall, CNN is largely left with egg on their face for ever having taken him seriously. Toobin admitted this in the segment, showing more reflection than many of his mainstream media colleagues are inclined to undergo.

I feel kind of snookered, because I took him seriously.”

Avenatti has been convicted for a scheme to extort tens of millions of dollars from sporting company Nike. He faces up to decades in prison in upcoming sentencing proceedings, and is currently housed in solitary in New York’s Metropolitan Correctional Center. He’s also set to face even more criminal charges in California, related to accusations he stole lawsuit rewards from his legal clients.

Avenatti’s rise and fall from cable news darling and pugnacious anti-Trump “fighter” to disgraced felon facing a possible life sentence is about as dramatic an arc one could expect to see a public figure undergo.

CNN and MSNBC now face some serious sole searching for their role in promoting the fraud, having taken his boisterous claims at face value for almost a year and even implicitly promoting his ridiculous presidential admiration. At least Toobin appears willing to admit his role in feeding the CPL’s ambitions.
