Monday, CNN host Don Lemon suggested censoring President Donald J. Trump during his scheduled Tuesday night speech at 9pm ET. It was the second time in recent memory that CNN has done this.
“Do you think it should be – I don’t know – a delay of some sort?” Lemon asked on his show “CNN Tonight.”
He was interviewing fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo.
“Because people believe it,” Lemon continued. “The President will say what he has to say, people will believe it whether the facts are true or not, I guess that’s the chance you’re taking.”
Even Cuomo, a radical leftist himself, looked puzzled by the proposition.
“And then, by the time the rebuttals come on, we’ve already promoted propaganda, possibly – unless he gets up there and tells the truth.” Lemon continued.
CNN? Afraid of “promoting propaganda?” How would promoting propaganda be any different from the network’s normal daily activities?
Cuomo challenged Lemon, telling him that wanting a border wall is not “propaganda.”
Just six days ago, CNN hack “reporter” Oliver Darcy suggested censorship of Trump’s live press briefings.
Big League Politics reported:
CNN “reporter” Oliver Darcy, who was instrumental in getting radio host Alex Jones de-platformed from the internet’s major social networks (so much for the “free press”) is on another crusade, this time advocating to censor President Donald J. Trump.
“Worth pointing out: News organizations get a lot of criticism when they tweet out Trump’s dubious claims without offering the reader more context. But networks are running his pool sprays, giving Trump huge platform to peddle all kinds of nonsense. Why not hold & vet claims 1st?” Darcy Tweeted Wednesday afternoon.
Darcy wants to stop his viewers from having unfettered access to Trump’s full press briefings, instead giving his network the opportunity to subjectively decide what angles it will take to report on Trump. It is far too easy for ordinary Americans to call out CNN for their lies and narrative twisting when they can simply refer back to the full tape and see what Trump said while speaking live.
The cable nets are tipping their hand more than usual out of pure derangement. They are terrified that he will rail against the Democratic Party’s open borders agenda, and that Americans might agree with him. The Orwellian suggestion by the press to suggest the censorship of anyone, let alone a sitting President, should be enough to make Americans wary of cable news.
UNBELIEVABLE: Don Lemon suggests that Trump's speech be delayed so it can be edited and kept from Americans.
Chris Cuomo (the voice of reason) corrects him and says wanting a border wall isn't immoral or wrong.

As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen
Right on cue.
With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.
For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”
This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.
Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”
On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”
“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.
And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.
The left is so predictable, isn’t it?
