The powers that be at CNN were in full outrage mode yesterday after Republican Sen. Martha McSally called Manu Raju, one of their congressional correspondents, a liberal hack, and refused to answer his questions.
After the incident, much of the minimal airtime left over from trashing Donald Trump all day was expended in defense of Raju and the network, which they clearly feel, has been unfairly besmirched. Ive got two words for them: toughen up.
A statement from their PR department said, It is extremely unbecoming for a U.S. Senator to sink to this level and treat a member of the press this way for simply doing his job. Oh no, not unbecoming. What is it when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calls Fox News Tucker Carlson a white supremacist sympathizer? Is that unbecoming or is that speaking truth to power?
Speaking of Fox News, or as your anchors like to refer to it, a different network, usually with a smug smirk of superiority and some quip about how CNN only trades in facts, what should we make of your attacks on that network? Your media critic Brian Stelter has an HBO special coming out called, After Truth: Disinformation and the Cost of Fake News. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Fake news? I thought that was dangerous rhetoric that threatens the republic. How dare you undermine the institution of the news media?
As a guy who grew up in Philly Id like to inform CNN that you dont get to come to the playground, smack everyone around and then run to the teacher when they hit you back. So here are a few jabs for you purveyors of pure, unbiased truth. Lets run down the

CNN has nothing to smirk about after losing/settling two major lawsuits that cost them close to 80-100 million bucks.
Looks like it is time to send a contribution to McSally’s campaign. Reward Republicans when they show some spine.
Anderson Cooper remarked ‘if she can’t answer that question, should she be in Congress?’
Wonder if he said same when Omar would not answer ...and continues to refuse to answer....when asked about her MANY questionable behaviors???
Everyone at CNN are liberal hacks.
That is actually a rather generous and mild description of them.
I thought it was great. They just keep pointing out how far to the left they are.
Since when does Anderson pooper sCooper decide who will represent the citizens of Arizona?
I have two words for haughty CNN: Nick Sandmann
sorry, DNC activists do not get to claim the privileges of the press
Many people have two words for CNN. I won’t mention the former, but the latter word is ‘OFF!’
McSally simply spoke the truth. It will probably get her re-elected.
Funny how “liberal hacks” can’t handle the truth. CNN is nothing more than a septic tank overflowing with leftist morons.
I’m suspicious here. McSally has been such a milquetoast figure up to now. This whole thing seems choreographed and she is definitely trying to get mileage out of it.
And of all the dirtbags at CNN to counter punch at it seems odd she would explode at this guy. There’s plenty more worse than him at CNN. Much worse.
The whole situation is odd. I”m enjoying it, don’t get me wrong, but this looks to be a case of political theater.
Hey CNN, stop being garbage and you wont get treated like garbage.
Even before I read your entire post I knew what your two words would be.
Same words I think of when CNN is mentioned.
I prefer to think of them as an open CESSPOOL, with the lib morons floating around on the surface.
McSally’s right - he’s a liberal hack... And CNN? They fold like a cheap suit.
Isn’t Mumu’s mug shot in the dictionary illustration for “Liberal Hack” next to the CNN logo?
