CNN Connects Trump to Bomber in Vile Bout of Semantic Gymnastics

This is unacceptable and unbelievable, and it could have only happened at CNN.

All throughout the wall-to-wall coverage of the attempted serial bomber yesterday, one message was persistent:  No one was blaming the President.

The corporate media of cable television spent a great deal of time making sure to cross their t’s and dot their i’s in this regard, making sure to allow the viewer to draw their own conclusions as the investigation and manhunt continues.  They understood full well that the first 24 hours of their coverage must remain at least somewhat impartial, in case they are made to look like fools before the sun rises again.

Now, after the colloquial requisite of 24 hours of pure “journalism”, the liberal ideologues are back at it on CNN, airing a graphic that very clearly stated the point that they wanted you and I to believe:

Do you think Democrats will push out Representative Ilhan Omar over her anti-Semitism?

The phrase “Trump’s targets” is not only disingenuous, but inarguably dangerous.  The media was targeted by a serial bomber, and their reaction is to connect them to the President of the United States, with no evidence, the very next day?

This may be why America’s distrust of the media is so prevalent in this new world of Trumpian politics and the realtime efficacy of Twitter; there is always going to be room for the contrarians and the conspiracy theorists.

CNN’s assertion that the bomber is working on behalf of the President, however indirect, has been forever emblazoned in this abhorrent linguistic choice, thanks to the decisions made by senior staff at the network.  These chyrons are just tossed together by a gaggle of interns and sent directly to air.  Ever.  There are layers of approval for things like this, and CNN chose to portray this crime as such.

All the while, the network was continuing to deplore the President for his weeks-old remarks on the mainstream media.

POTUS and George Conway Trade NASTY Narratives Online

Conway’s insinuation of Trump’s mental condition set the President off.

George Conway

After President Trump’s extended Tweet storm this past weekend, it comes as no surprise that there would be some residual precipitation throughout the week. The Commander in Chief, who is an avid and proficient Twitter user, has been using the platform to circumvent the mainstream media as of late.  The reason being is simple; the MSM is slanted and biased in ways that our nation would never have imagined possible. Of course, due to the freedom of the internet, (or what’s left of it anyway), there are plenty of characters who spend their days attempting to garner the attention of the President via the Twitter platform.  Often these short and biting pieces of drivel sail right past ol’ 45. Not today, however. Kellyanne Conway’s husband George is ‘a total loser,’ Preisdent Donald Trump claimed on Tuesday, less than 24 hours after the Washington lawyer blasted him on Twitter as mentally ill. And the president’s 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, claimed ‘Mr. Kellyanne Conway’ is ‘jealous’ of his more-famous wife’s success after being bounced from a low-prestige job at the U.S. Department of Justice. ‘He barely worked @TheJusticeDept and was either fired/quit, didn’t want the scrutiny? Now he hurts his wife because he is jealous of her success. POTUS doesn’t even know him!’ Parscale tweeted Monday night. George Conway and President Trump have feuded quite publicly in the past as well, but this latest spat seems to have arrived with a newfound intensity, thanks in no small part to the President’s increasingly combative behavior. But can we really blame Trump for this shift in attitude?  Given what passes for “news” these days, we’re not so sure.

O’Rourke Accused of Wrongly Appropriating “Beto” by Latino Journalist

Looks like “Beto” may have to go back to “Robert Francis” for the time being…

Beto O'Rourke

The mainstream media has been tiptoeing around Robert Francis O’Rourke’s name for some time now, but it seems that the jig is up. “Beto” is what O’Rourke refers to himself as, and there is an extremely specific reason why.  As a politician living in El Paso, Texas, the Latino demographic is of the utmost importance for the democratic presidential candidate. “Beto” is a Mexican nickname, short for “Roberto” and O’Rourke has certainly used this to his advantage in politics. Now, a prominent Latino journalist is bashing “Beto” for the appropriation of the nickname, comparing the move to “stolen valor”. In fact, in a USA Today column, Ruben Navarrette said that the “Beto backlash” among Latinos reminds him “of the idea of stolen valor, the righteous outrage felt by combat veterans when others who didn’t see action claim medals they don’t deserve.” Navarrette said that numerous Latinos “— unlike the media, which is run by white liberals who are fascinated by other white liberals — refuse to go loco for Beto” because O’Rourke has not been with the community when it mattered on issues like immigration. Navarrette continued… “For instance, at a time when Latinos feel under siege by ethnocentrism and anti-immigrant demagoguery, where was O’Rourke on the explosive immigration issue during his three terms in the House of Representatives?” Navarrette asked. And this wasn’t the first time that the journalist went after Robert Francis O’Rourke, either. In a previous column last month addressing “cultural appropriation,” Navarrette noted that though O’Rourke, whom he dubbed “the Hamlet of West Texas,” has likely “never gone out and told a group of Mexican-Americans that he was a member of the tribe,” it seems like “he doesn’t mind if some Latinos jump to that conclusion and vote for him because of some misplaced sense of ethnic…
