CNN Faces Credibility Crisis

As viewers continue to flee from CNN, the Fake News outlet is using the opportunity to downsize its staff while sliding into new, luxurious headquarters. With less than half of Fox News Channel’s average, its prime time lineup is tallying behind TLC as well as Investigation Discovery and the Hallmark Channels, according to media watchdogs. Media expert Joe Concha is predicting these numbers will only get worse with the outlet’s liberal 2020 propaganda in full swing. In other words, the American people have had their fill of fake news.

Here’s more from Fox News…

CNN is suffering a credibility crisis as viewership for the once-proud network continues to crater with no apparent plan in place to fix things anytime soon, according to media watchdogs and insiders.

CNN’s audience shriveled in the second quarter of 2019, averaging only 541,000 total viewers, less than half Fox News Channel’s 1.3 million average. But CNN struggled even more during the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m. ET, finishing as the fifteenth most-watched network on basic cable behind networks such as TLC, Investigation Discovery and the Hallmark Channel. CNN averaged a dismal 761,000 primetime viewers while FNC averaged 2.4 million.

The Hill media guru Joe Concha told Fox News that CNN’s freefall may not be slowing.

“The numbers warrant concern, yes. Q2 was a particularly news-rich quarter highlighted by the release of the Mueller report and all the aftermath and controversy following it, plus the launch of several high-profile Democratic candidacies including Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg to propel 2020 coverage into high gear,” Concha said.

Nike Drops Patriotic Sneaker After Kaepernick Whines

Just ahead of the Fourth of July, Nike has dropped a Betsy Ross-themed patriotic sneaker…because former San Francisco 49ers anthem kneeler Colin Kaepernick whined about them. The shoe, called the Air Max 1 USA, had already been shipped to retailers according to a report by The Wall Street Journal, but Kaepernick’s offense over the “racist” Betsy Ross flag-you know, with its slavery connotations-was enough to have the company pull the entire line of $140 sneakers with a whitewashed excuse, claiming they “featured the old version of the American flag.” In short, Lefty Kaepernick ordered Nike to just NOT do it.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Just don’t do it.

That was the message ex-NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick delivered to Nike over the planned release of a USA-themed sneaker, which featured a Betsy Ross flag on the heel, according to a report.

Nike nixed the released of the Air Max 1 USA after having already sent the sneakers to retailers because the protesting quarterback said he felt the use of the Betsy Ross flag was offensive and carried slavery connotations, sources told The Wall Street Journal.

Citing people familiar with the matter, the Journal’s report stated: “After images of the shoe were posted online, Mr. Kaepernick, a Nike endorser, reached out to company officials saying that he and others felt the Betsy Ross flag is an offensive symbol because of its connection to an era of slavery.”

Project Veritas Exposes Google Plot Against Trump

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas just exposed Google executive Jen Gennai explaining how the Left wing’s Internet leviathan plans to prevent “the next Trump Situation.” Among her standout claims: “We’re also training our algorithms, like, if 2016 happened again, would we have, would the outcome be different?” The video did not last even 24 hours before Google-owned YouTube removed it, approaching 50 thousand likes and a million views, from its platform, citing a “privacy violation.” As for Gennai, she’s playing the victim and claiming to be “set up” and her words taken out of context. It’s time for an anti-censorship hammer from conservatives in Congress…an election hangs in the balance.

Here’s more from American Greatness…

James O’Keefe’s explosive video exposing Google’s political agenda appears to have ruffled some feathers in the media world.

Jen Gennai, the Google executive seen talking to Project Veritas undercover journalists about Google’s plans to prevent “the next Trump situation,” has already published a response complaining that she was taken out of context.

And the bombshell video didn’t last even a full day on YouTube before it was removed from the platform.

Piers Morgan Predicts Trump 2020 Victory

Liberal British journalist Piers Morgan rigorously debunked liberals pretending they have a chance to defy President Trump’s 2020 re-election odds. “When Trump launched his 2020 campaign on Tuesday night in Orlando, Florida, I didn’t sense I was watching a guy who’s going to lose. In fact, I got the complete opposite feeling,” Morgan wrote in the Daily Mail. “Trump exuded the confident all-conquering swagger of someone who defied all polls and logic last time, and fully intends to do so again.” Trump’s favorability opinion at 43.8%-more than six points higher than when he won the 2016 election-may be the best evidence that Morgan is right.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

In a piece for the Daily Mail on Thursday, British journalist Piers Morgan explained, quite thoroughly, why he thinks Trump is going to win the 2020 election. And not just win it, but win it easily. “When Trump launched his 2020 campaign on Tuesday night in Orlando, Florida, I didn’t sense I was watching a guy who’s going to lose. In fact, I got the complete opposite feeling,” Morgan wrote. “Trump exuded the confident all-conquering swagger of someone who defied all polls and logic last time, and fully intends to do so again.”

He’s spent two-and-a-half years bombarding Americans with relentless self-aggrandizing tweets, speeches, rallies and media interviews – all designed to keep his base pot boiling.
And his strategy has clearly worked.

Google Emails: “Hatred of Christians and Conservatives”

Conservative author, filmmaker, and lawyer Mike Cernovich revealed to Breitbart News that Google internal emails obtained through a discovery process related to an anti-discrimination lawsuit proves anti-Christian and conservative hatred throughout the company’s communications. Cernovich told host Alex Marlow that the findings were “fantastic news and a huge legal development.” “It’s very, very rare to get that kind of look under the hood at Google, and that’s exactly what’s going to happen in this case.” This suit may very well blow the doors open to the massive anti-conservative, anti-Christian censorship by the Silicon Left, and it’ll be long overdue.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Author, filmmaker, and lawyer Mike Cernovich said that a review of Google’s internal emails via the discovery process in an ongoing anti-discrimination lawsuit against the company will reveal its hatred of Christians and conservatives throughout its organization. He offered his remarks on Tuesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.

Marlow invited Cernovich’s comments on the latest developments in the aforementioned anti-discrimination class action lawsuit filed against Google.

“This is actually fantastic news and a huge legal development,” replied Cernovich. “Maybe a lot of people don’t realize what discovery is. Discovery is a process whereby a lawyer is allowed to go through every email that Google has sent and received internally.”

YouTube to Ban “Hateful” Videos

Google-owned YouTube announced on Wednesday that it will ban videos promoting or glorifying racism and discrimination as well as those promoting “conspiracy theories.” “Today, we’re taking another step in our hate speech policy by specifically prohibiting videos alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion based on qualities like age, gender, race, caste, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status.” According to YouTube, “[I]t will take time for our systems to fully ramp up and coverage will gradually expand over the next several months.” The move comes after the video platform saw fit to “de-monetize” conservative Steven Crowder’s viral comedy show following complaints that his jokes were offensive and not PC. In short, the “Left Valley” continues censorship of conservative voices with draconian criteria for what is considered inoffensive.

Here’s more from Yahoo News…

YouTube announced Wednesday it would ban videos promoting or glorifying racism and discrimination as well as those denying well-documented violent events, like the Holocaust or the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting.

The announcement by the Google-owned video-sharing platform was the latest of a series of tech industry moves to filter out hateful and violent content, which have spurred calls for tougher regulation.

“YouTube has always had rules of the road, including a longstanding policy against hate speech,” a company statement said.

“Today, we’re taking another step in our hate speech policy by specifically prohibiting videos alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion based on qualities like age, gender, race, caste, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status.”

Netflix, Disney Threaten Hypocritical Georgia Boycott

Disney has now joined Netflix and others in the entertainment industry in threatening to boycott filming and production in Georgia after the state’s governor signed “heartbeat” protections into law. Except the Left wing elites see no problem in continuing to do business in Egypt and Jordan, where abortion is illegal and China, where abortions are routinely forced on women by the government in accord with its strict one child policy. According to The Daily Caller, Disney even recently opened a $5.5 billion resort in Shanghai without a peep of alarm about the internment of more than a million Muslims in internment camps. Hollywood’s political correctness is merely a domestic ideology convenient only when it aligns with traditional Leftist intrigues.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Entertainment giants Netflix and Disney are threatening to pull their business out of Georgia over the state’s recently-enacted “heartbeat” abortion bill but maintains unwavering partnerships with countries like Egypt, where abortions are illegal, and China, where Muslims are being held in internment camps.

Earlier this week, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos issued a statement on the growing movement in Hollywood to boycott Georgia over the new pro-life legislation which prohibits abortions if a baby’s heartbeat is detected, which is roughly six weeks into the pregnancy.

“We have many women working on productions in Georgia, whose rights, along with millions of others, will be severely restricted by this law,” Sarandos said. “Given the legislation has not yet been implemented, we’ll continue to film there, while also supporting partners and artists who choose not to. Should it ever come into effect, we’d rethink our entire investment in Georgia.”

Netflix Threatens to Boycott Filming in Georgia

Netflix is the latest Hollywood elitist company to threaten Georgia with a boycott after the state’s new abortion restrictions were signed into law. Netflix reports it may “rethink” filming and their “entire investment” there if the law isn’t scrapped, but conservatives are already mounting their own boycott threats against Netflix if it follows through, and with the success of conservative and Christian films in recent years, pressure from Hollywood may result in an entirely separate cottage industry. We approve!

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

In response to Georgia’s new law prohibiting aborting babies with a detectable heartbeat, Netflix said that the company may “rethink” filming in Georgia if the law goes into effect. In response, some conservatives are saying they will consider boycotting Netflix if they follow through on the Georgia boycott.

In a statement to Variety, Netflix’s chief content creator Ted Sarandos said the company will work with the ACLU to fight the Georgia law in court.​

“We have many women working on productions in Georgia, whose rights, along with millions of others, will be severely restricted by this law,” Sarandos said. “It’s why we will work with the ACLU and others to fight it in court.”

Another Facebook “Hate Agent” Revealed

Breitbart just released another bombshell on Facebook’s “Hate Agents” internal list: conservative author and terrorism expert Brigitte Gabriel. Facebook has already confessed that the list is divided into three levels tracking its users’ “signals” as far back as three years. According to the spreadsheet, Gabriel was specifically flagged for “1 lifetime deletion for hate speech-dehumanizing” after speaking at a Christians United for Israel event where she referred to “Arabs as Barbarians” in the context of giving martyrdom status to suicide bombers who kill Jews. This is just one small facet of the Silicon Left’s censorship of the Right ahead of 2020.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Lebanese-American conservative author and terrorism expert Brigitte Gabriel is also on an internal list of “Hate Agents” maintained by Facebook, Breitbart News can exclusively reveal.

Breitbart News exposed the existence of the “Hate Agents” list last week, after a Facebook insider leaked a partial screenshot showing black conservative leader Candace Owens was also on the list. The insider, who leaked the information to Breitbart, also shared a partial image of the list.

Following the leak, Facebook admitted that the list exists, but stressed that Owens had not yet been investigated.

Rep. AOC Mistakes Fellow Democrat for a Republican

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) very publicly and egregiously condemned a fellow congressman in her own party for posing with a cardboard cutout of her… mistaking him for a Republican. “GOP: Let’s post our older male members next to cardboard cutouts of young female legislators,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in the now deleted tweet. Except it was Representative John Yarmuth (D-KY). “Maybe if @AOC spent more time interacting with lawmakers and less time making coloring books, she’d recognize the other socialist Democrats in her caucus,” tweeted the National Republican Congressional Committee.

Here’s more from New York Post…

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fired off a tweet on Thursday calling out Kentucky Republicans for posting a photo of an older GOP lawmaker posing with a cutout of her — turns out the politician was a Democratic colleague.

“GOP: Let’s post our older male members next to cardboard cutouts of young female legislators,” the freshman Democrat wrote in the now-deleted tweet.

The problem is that the lawmaker in the photo is Rep. John Yarmuth, a Democrat from Kentucky.

The National Republican Congressional Committee, which works to elect Republican members of the House, quickly pointed out the mistake.
