11 reasons to pull CNN's credentials

Why you should care about increasing secrecy in White House and Senate
Inch by inch by inch, the Trump administration is rolling back press access, which means less information for the public.
And by press access, CNN means CNN.

Fox News and the rest of the TV outlets get called upon at press briefings. The reason CNN does not is because CNN no longer bothers with even the facade of fairness.

Why does CNN deserve to be treated like dirt?

Let me count the ways.

1. The 27-cent foreclosure story on December 15. That was a lie.

2. Linking the Golden Showers story. That was a lie.

3. CNN interviews a "man on the street." That was a lie. It was a cameraman.

4. Trump turning Supreme Court announcement into a reality show. That was a lie.

5. Spicer has Super Soakers. That was a lie.

6. Muslim ban. That was a lie. His two executive orders covering more than 8,000 words do not include the word "Muslim" or "ban."

7. House rolls back rule restricting gun sales to severely mentally ill. That was a lie.

8. Rape and domestic violence could be pre-existing conditions. That was a lie.

9. Comey expected to refute Trump. That was a lie.

10. Saudis pledge $100 million to an Ivanka fund. That was a lie.

CNN tells lies big and small about things of import and about things of little consequence.

Its work is sloppy, snarky, and sorry -- although the network never apologizes.

Why should any Republican give that network the time of day? Because CNN has press passes?

Pull them then.

As Nancy Sinatra tweeted in January, “That’s not true. I never said that. Why do you lie, CNN?”

On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.

And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

  1. CNN has lied to us since (likely before) the days of Eason Jordan.

  2. CNN is likely to come under the control of ATT soon if it buys Time Warner. What this will do to its functions I have no idea but it could put a damper on Zucker. CNN is now just another circus network, but without any new acts for months, all reruns and in Russian. I don't think Zucker cares about press creds. He would like them pulled, in fact, to create some heat to impress any new and massive content hungry owners. He is now ringmaster for a small entertainment company, judged by his Bosses only for box office and advertizing demographics. Unlike Obama he has no self deception in the Pericles costume he wears or the the Grecian columns he performs before each day. He knows ATT is not going to fund fantasy Trump murder in Central Park like his present masters. It has its own reputation to defend, and on a much bigger stage. After all, Trump is president with worldwide influence over them. Jeff is just a rich peon but he would probably like to stay rich.

  3. Thanks, Don. Great to have those reminders handy!

  4. You omitted the biggest CNN lie: that they are a news source.

  5. CNN was the main cheerleader for "Hands Up, Don't Shoot"-which was all The Big Lie.

    They got a lot of cops killed with their fact-free moral grandstanding. CNN beat the drum until they got Ferguson burned down. They should send a card to Zemir Begic's family. What--you don't remember his name, CNN? He's the Bosnian immigrant beaten to death with two hammers for being white the night CNN incited its riot.

    CNN: Reporting so bad, it kills people.

  6. Slim Trim 2000

    It you wish to experience rapid weight reduction, but you would like to make things as simple as possible, then do each of the above things. If you prefer to drop some weight, it's best you speak to somebody who is well-versed in the approach. Keeping yourself hydrated is another easy way of guaranteeing that you drop some weight.

    Preparing your site for visitors is similar to preparing your home for a party before inviting the guests. Daycare expenses, the demand for another vehicle, and an excessive amount of time away from the children are a few of the public drawbacks. There is absolutely no fee related to this training, but there's a price to pay.

  8. When it comes to CNN and MSNBC I am not concerned at all.
