    A freelance CNN contributor reportedly tweeted praise for Hitler on Sunday amid the ongoing hostilities between Israel and Hamas. In a since-deleted post, Adeel Raja, a journalist based out of Pakistan, wrote, “the world today needs a Hitler,” the Washington Examiner reported. Raja has freelanced for CNN since 2013, according to his LinkedIn account, working on several stories for the network during that time, the report said. After learning of the post, CNN cut ties with Raja.

    James O’Keefe, founder of Project Veritas, teased the release of tapes revealing CNN’s bias while on an editorial call with the network’s president Jeff Zucker. O’Keefe informed Zucker on the call that his organization had been recording the insider calls for months before inquiring “do you still feel you’re the most trusted name in news.” Zucker, failing to address O’Keefe’s question, responds “thank you for your comment. So, everybody, I think in light of that, we’ll set up a new system, and we’ll be back with you, we’ll do the rest of the call later” before appearing to end the...
  • CNN Opinion: What Trump is trying to achieve with 'Obamagate'

    CNN ^ | May 16, 2020 | By Julian Zelizer, CNN Political Analyst
    With the nation in the middle of a horrendous pandemic, President Donald Trump has decided to devote much of his time fueling the "Obamagate" conspiracy. Trump went on a Twitter rampage this past week, sharing falsehoods and misleading claims that promote the conspiracy theory that former President Barack Obama led a supposed "coup" to sabotage his presidency. But when a Washington Post reporter pressed Trump earlier this week to explain what Obama did, the President failed to clarify and said, "You know what the crime is. The crime is obvious to everybody. All you have to do is read the...
  • (CNN) US coronavirus death count likely an underestimate. Here’s why.

    Health experts are warning the national count of Covid-19 deaths in the United States could be underestimated as the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread. This could be especially true because the reporting data can lag by an average of one to two weeks, according to the latest guidance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's. Also, deaths due to Covid-19 "may be misclassified as pneumonia deaths in the absence of positive test results, and pneumonia may appear on death certificates as a comorbid condition," the CDC noted, adding that "analyses to better understand and quantify reporting delays" for...

    Political activism in journalism is nothing new. But it is rarely so evident. “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dominates in abortion case,” reads the headline to a news report this week by CNN Supreme Court reporter Ariane de Vogue. If it were just the headline, the unusually excited tone could be forgiven. But there is so, so much more. “If there is any question whether 86-year-old Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who has spent her life steeped in issues concerning women's rights, is slowing down after four bouts of cancer, it was not evident Wednesday morning in Washington,” reads the report's opening...

    CNN anchor Don Lemon on Tuesday night addressed a segment from the weekend that drew criticism from President Trump in which the host laughed after a guest mocked supporters of the president. "Ask anyone who knows me," Lemon said at the end of his show Tuesday while addressing the segment. "They'll tell you: I don't believe in belittling people ... for who they are, for what they believe or where they're from." Lemon said that while he found the "joke" from the guest to be funny at the time, he "didn't catch everything that was said." "I was laughing at...

    Three years into President Donald Trump’s first term and the news media still don’t understand how we got here. Saturday, CNN Anchor Don Lemon show blasted Trump, his administration and his supporters. It was almost like CNN was trying its best to create a clip Trump could use in an ad to win his second term. That meant Lemon, who last June said he might have to leave TV because of “toxicity,” laughed uproariously at his own toxic TV show. And the network that regularly complains about “hateful speech” by the administration, actually promoted the incident.

    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump is dishonest about a whole lot of things. But he is rarely as comprehensively dishonest as he has been about his dealings with Ukraine and the impeachment inquiry they have triggered. Relentless deceit has seemed to be his primary defense strategy in the court of public opinion. Trump has made false claims about almost every separate component of the story, from his July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to the whistleblower who complained about the call to Democrats' impeachment inquiry hearings. The President is dissembling about so many different topics at once that it...

    President Donald Trump often refers to the mainstream media as “the enemy of the people,” and in a violent fake video shown at a conference for his supporters at his Trump National Doral resort in Miami last week, he takes matters into his own hands, according to footage obtained by the New York Times NYT. American Priority, a pro-Trump group, held the three-day conference, where Donald Trump Jr., former White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis were all scheduled to speak, the Times reported. The video shows Trump’s head superimposed on a man who shoots and...

    “It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” – Samuel Adams. This week, a CNN insider will blow the whistle and through Project Veritas will release dozens of recordings made of officials at the highest levels of CNN, revealing a political agenda, bias and misconduct hidden from public view. This series of tapes — which we think will be the biggest story of the year for Project Veritas — blends two extraordinary series of events; a brave insider secretly recording at work and...

    A CNN photo editor has resigned after anti-Semitic tweets he sent in 2011 surfaced, including one in which he mentioned “Jewish pigs” killed in a terror attack in Jerusalem, according to reports. Mohammed Elshamy, 25, a former photojournalist with the Turkish Anadolu news agency, quit late Thursday after an employee of Israel’s Government Press Office flagged some of his offensive tweets, the Times of Israel reported.

    Four years ago, 32-year-old Sam Sally left her hometown in Indiana for a vacation in Turkey. The family went from a mundane life of sports cars and a delivery business to joining Islamic State fighters and seeing their son become the face of ISIS propaganda against America. During the trip, Sally claims her husband, Moussa, duped her and her children -- Matthew, 10; Sarah, 5; and her two youngest who were born in the so-called ISIS caliphate -- into joining Islamic State militants in Syria. Sally said, "All I saw was a bunch of drug-using thugs that came from their...

    CNN’s Alisyn Camerota confronted a literal Nazi who is currently poised to nab the GOP nomination for Congress — and the interview predictably derailed, as the Nazi ranted about “the Jewish media.” Arthur Jones, a holocaust denier, anti-Semite, white supremacist and all around lunatic is set to become the Republican nominee for an Illinois congressional seat near Chicago — and appeared on CNN to defend himself. “It is shocking to hear how vocally and unapologetically racist you are,” Camerota opened the interview. “Are you a Nazi?” Jones contended that he does not call himself a Nazi, but an “American patriot...

    (CNN) - After almost a full year of Donald Trump's presidency, and with a new year freshly started, I think it's safe to say that we're all exhausted. I remember thinking after the first few months of 2017 went by, "He can't possibly keep this pace up -- governing by tweet -- it's unsustainable." Clearly, I was wrong. Just three days before 2018 began, in an impromptu interview with The New York Times, President Donald Trump declared that one of the reasons "I'm going to win another four years is because newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if...

The first, and the one less traveled, leads to a thoughtful, fact-driven exchange of ideas. The second (more popular) route leads to bitter back-and-forth filled with tired stereotypes or racially inflammatory barbs. November 15th, 2016 When did our tolerance stop be tolerant?

Interesting clip.

    The murders of three white men by a black supremacist gunman in Fresno received limited media attention on Tuesday, most notably at CNN. CNN’s dearth of coverage of the shootings, carried out by 39-year-old Kori Ali Muhammad, an African-American Muslim, stands in stark contrast to its reporting of other non-political news events: the manhunt for a Cleveland man who killed a 74-year-old man on Sunday, a sexual harassment scandal involving Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, and a child custody battle involving radio host Alex Jones. A review of CNN’s broadcast through primetime shows that the Fresno killings received no mentions...
