People don’t call CNN the “Clinton News Network” for nothing.
The network has been in the back pocket of the Democratic establishment for years.
Conservatives have sworn off watching CNN… and with ratings in the toilet, CNN is afraid of alienating its liberal base.
In fact, CNN is so afraid that it’s IGNORING a major story that could bring down some of the biggest Democrats in Congress.
How’s that for biased?
CNN has refused to inform its audience of a growing scandal tying prominent Democratic politicians and activists to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious racist, sexist, and anti-Semite.
Even other left-leaning news outlets like The New York Times, ABC News, CBS and The Washington Post, are giving this story some serious press. But CNN is covering it up.
According to The Daily Caller, at least eight Democrats are known to have met with Farrakhan, who routinely calls Jews “satanic,” has said that white people “deserve to die,” and doesn’t believe women should have careers. That list includes the likes of Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison (the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee), Illinois Rep. Danny Davis (who said Farrakhan is an “outstanding human being”), Rep. Maxine Waters (California) and Rep. Al Green (Texas).
Yes, the same Maxine Waters and Al Green who have been trying to impeach President Donald Trump.
The leaders of Women’s March have also declared their support for Farrakhan and have refused to denounce him even as they alienate other progressives by supporting a rabid anti-Semite. The group’s co-president, Tamika Mallory, even compared Farrakhan to Jesus.
So why isn’t CNN (the self-proclaimed “most trusted news source”) covering any of this?
To-date, CNN has published one article noting Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic speech but it did not include the new evidence of ties between Farrakhan and Democratic politicians. CNN has yet to publish a single article outlining the new evidence of relationships between Farrakhan and Democratic politicians.
CNN’s on-air coverage of the Farrakhan scandal has been limited to a one-minute segment on Jake Tapper’s “State of the Union,” and one question that Wolf Blitzer posed to Ellison at the end of an interview in February. Aside from those two brief instances, the Farrakhan scandal has been entirely missing from CNN’s on-air coverage.
Why? Because CNN is terrified of alienating its Democratic base.
So the network runs non-stop hit pieces about Trump, while ignoring sitting members of Congress meeting with the leader of an officially designated hate group.
Can you imagine of Trump was meeting with hate group leaders? It’s all CNN would talk about.
Even as of today, CNN has yet to publish an article informing readers of the new ties between Democratic politicians and one of America’s most notorious racists and anti-Semites.
CNN’s answer to plummeting ratings is to play dumb and not report REAL news that could upset Democrats.
And that’s just pathetic.
