Posted on 04/22/2019 9:57:58 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
Compare the legal backgrounds of Harvard's Alan Dershowitz versus sleazy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti. Who has the more distinguished career? Yet CNN chose Avenatti over Dershowitz for the go-to person for legal analysis of the Trump-Russia collusion probe. Why? Well, despite Avenatti falling way short in legal background compared to Dershowitz what qualified him to be an almost daily guest on CNN for a long period last year was that he promised the imminent demise of the presidency of Donald Trump.
Alan Dershowitz described to Howard Kurtz on Fox News' MediaBuzz on Sunday how CNN which characterizes itself as the the network of "apple" facts slipped on the Avenatti banana peel of its own making since his prognostications all proved wrong.

hell, they thought he was presidential!...............
And yet, you’ll be a lifelong lib! Idiot!
Of course they chose Avenatti over Dershowitz.
Dershowitz left the liberal plantation. They can’d abide that.
Dershowitz, at times, demonstrates some common sense....not desired at CNN.
It’s about the agenda, not the truth. As a liberal, you should know.
Dershowitz complains about this so much, now it sounds like he’s just whining about it. Clearly, he likes to be on TV. I wonder how much he is paid.
As for liberals watching CNN, what's there not to like?
Birds of a feather, flock together.

That had to hurt, at the time. But, it was a results-oriented “advice” that was sought, so its understandable in retrospect.
I wonder if Avenatti had any reputation other than as a flashy money-chaser at the time the decision was made.
Revenge, a dish best served cold.
I dunno. Avennati knows porn. That’s basically what CNN is - #nevertrump porn.
It’s all for the best. When the history of this affair is written CNN’s face to the world and the very symbol of Democrat righteousness is going to be Creepy Porn Lawyer. That’s what it was all about, kids, nothing more.
Dershowitz is a liberal, of the sort that should be in a museum. Very few exist these days, at least as spokes-critters for the “liberal position.” What we (and it seems most self-identified liberals today) used to know as “liberals” have no place in either the MSM nor the dem party. Walter Cronkite, even with his leftist bent, would never be hired by CNN or most other news outlets today, being “too right-wing.” John F. Kennedy would have long been driven out of the dem party. Stalinists, or even Maoists, have taken over the leadership of the democrat party, although Pelosi tries to paint the images that she has some control. She doesn’t. When someone like Biden needs to apologize for being “White,” you know there’s a problem with the heart and soul of that party.
As a liberal, he can be counted on to take consistent positions, as opposed to the leftists who blindly support Obama, Hillary, Steyer, Soros, and all their minions. They really don’t give a damn what damage they do to America nor Americans, as long as the will of their masters is done.
There are principled liberals. They include Dershowitz, Camile Paglia, Tammy Bruce (though she may now be more “small ‘l’ libertarian” now,” and the late Christopher Hitchens. I disagree with many of their stands, but they all have, or had, my respect.
Avenatti lends his legal expertise and authority to the analyses that CNN wants to hear. Avenatti is much more credible than Dershowitz to those who can accept only a particular warped perspective. It works for people who believe something to be true because they say it is true and for no other necessary reason, reality being strictly a mental construct.
One of the early leftist crimes was co-opting the word “liberal” to mean commie-destroyer-of-western-civilization.
You assume all of these old time liberals would not have ‘evolved’ with the times. Just as an example, the Lion of the Senate Teddy Kennedy was once pro-life....
Slightly off topic, but where is Johathan Truley? His voice is one of the most important - haven’t heard from him on this report yet.
Y’know, for a bright guy and a good attorney, Dershowitz is a bit of a dumbass. How many times has he seen the Dems turn on someone who refused to tow the party line? Why would he think they wouldn’t do it to him?
It’s kind of analogous to the guy who marries a woman who cheated on her ex-husband (or vice versa): “Well, she’d never do that to me...”
