CNN Launches Attack on Fox News Host Martha MacCallum. There’s Just One Problem.

Due diligence is a critical component of solid journalism. Now. Someone just needs to tell CNN that.

A CNN reporter launched a false attack on Fox News host Martha MacCallum by using a deceptively edited video Wednesday evening that was from a hardcore left-wing hit group. The video’s purpose was to inaccurately portray an exchange MacCallum had with a retired FBI agent.

MacCallum featured the FBI profiler and forensic linguist Jim Fitzgerald to discuss the rash of bomb packages delivered throughout the day. Fitzgerald is uniquely qualified to discuss the topic, given he helped to catch the infamous Unabomber.

Speaking about the different potential scenarios of who could have been behind sending the devices, Fitzgerald explained that it could be someone on the political Right, a foreign entity looking to meddle in U.S. elections, or a false flag attack staged by someone on the political Left.

“A false flag, they also call it black ops, [is] some kind of an operation where a crime, or a letter, or something is done to make it look like it belongs to one entity when it actually in real life belongs to the other,” Fitzgerald said. “And I’m by no means locked into this theory, but I’ll tell you this Martha, these devices were either made and sent by a right-wing guy who doesn’t like the Dems — and we can’t rule out international aspects to this, Russians messed with our 2016 elections just using Facebook, could they have done this? — the other [possibility] is that false flag.”

“And there could be someone in there, some Democrat, that low-level person, I’m not suggesting anyone on the top, but who just decided, ‘I’m going to put this out,’ because two weeks before a major election, who’s going to look like the bad guy here? The Republicans,” Fitzgerald concluded.

MacCallum responded by saying, “Fascinating,” before launching into her next question.

CNN’s Oliver Darcy tweeted a video clip from Media Matters that cut out most of what Fitzgerald said. The clip only included him saying:

…the other [possibility] is that false flag.

And there could be someone in there, some Democrat, that low-level person, I’m not suggesting anyone on the top, but who just decided, ‘I’m going to put this out,’ because two weeks before a major election, who’s going to look like the bad guy here? The Republicans

What this little clip failed to show was that Fitzgerald also discussed how it could very well be a right-wing person or even a foreign entity responsible for the activity. He also noted that he was not sold on the “false flag” theory.

The heavily edited clip also did not mention that he was an expert FBI profiler, noting that he was a “Fox News guest.”

Here’s what Darcy posted along with the deceptive video clip:

“It’s the responsibility of @marthamaccallum to make sure that after her guest spreads an unsubstantiated conspiracy theory on her air, she immediately corrects it for viewers and provides them the facts. Instead she simply replies, ‘Fascinating.'”

The real question here is how many times has CNN jumped to conclusions and perpetuated conspiracy theories without waiting for the full facts on a situation to be gathered and disseminated for the general public?

How about that whole Russian collusion stuff? Or when Brian Stelter suggested that Fox News manufactured the crisis at the U.S.- Mexico border. Or the time a CNN analyst hypothesized that the Boston Bombing could be the product of right-wing terrorists?

Conveniently, they seem to have forgotten all about those situations.

Here’s the full video with MacCallum and Fitzgerald:

Yovanovitch Testifies In Impeachment Hearing Of Being ‘Kneecapped;’ Trump Says Everywhere She Worked ‘Turned Bad’

Published

on

Former ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch decided to do a little bit of finger pointing during her testimony during Friday’s impeachment hearings, targeting Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and discussing her sudden removal from her diplomatic post. President Trump returned fire and stated that every place Yovanovitch worked “turned bad.” Check out the details from Fox News: During her appearance, Yovanovitch, a career diplomat who served both Republican and Democratic presidents, relayed her story of being suddenly recalled by Trump in May, saying she believes Giuliani played a key role in telling people she was not sufficiently supportive of the president. “I do not understand Mr. Giuliani’s motives for attacking me, nor can I offer an opinion on whether he believed the allegations he spread about me,” Yovanovitch said. “If our chief representative is kneecapped, it limits our effectiveness to safeguard the vital national security interests of the United States,” Yovanovitch said. After the hearing started, Trump began attacking her, tweeting, “Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad.” He added, “It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors.” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1195356198347956224 As the impeachment hearing kicked off on Friday, the White House released a new transcript of the president’s initial phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The transcript showed the president agreeing to meet with Zelensky — without any sort of preconditions — in the first official phone call between the two world leaders. Devin Nunes, ranking member of the Intelligence Committee read the whole letter during his opening statement. A separate call that happened between Trump and Zelensky is what started the impeachment inquiry, and the GOP is saying this new transcript helps solidify Trump’s argument that he didn’t do anything wrong in his conversation with the Ukrainian president-elect. Yovanovitch’s removal from her post as the ambassador to Ukraine is…

Planned Parenthood Puts On Pole-Dancing Fundraiser For All-Ages, All-Genders; Includes ‘Pleasure Education’

Published

on

Planned Parenthood’s Northwest and Hawaii political action group is putting on an event entitled “Femme Fest” in Olympia, Washington, which is being offered and opened to “all genders and ages,” which will feature “clitoris and pleasure education” workshops and a “Wicked Sexy Pole Dance Showcase.” Here’s more on the event from TheBlaze: “Join Pilates at Play and Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest & Hawaii as we celebrate our sexuality and enjoy an irreverently playful night of fundraising, fitness, sex talk, and exotic pole dance performances,” an announcement for the event reads on Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s website. The fundraiser comes after a recent school board vote in the nearby Battle Ground school district to scrap a comprehensive sex education curriculum that many feared promoted an LGBTQ+ agenda. In fact, the board not only suspended its use of the specific sex education curriculum under fire, known as FLASH, but eliminated the requirements for the district to teach sex education in general, unless required by the state. Presently, Washington law only requires that school districts teach about HIV and AIDS prevention. Planned Parenthood’s event will also have an educational portion comprised of sessions designed to teach attendees about making sex education something that’s mandatory in the state of Washington. Information about how to pleasure the “clitoris” will also be made available. Here’s a glimpse at the whole schedule: 4 – 5 p.m.: Pilates and Barre Class Sampler 5 – 5:30 p.m.: Sexy Floor Work Lesson 5:30 – 6 p.m.: The Art of Feminine Sensual Movement 6 – 6:30 p.m.: Clitoris and Pleasure Education with Planned Parenthood 6:30 – 7 p.m.: Sex Ed in Washington State Informational with Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest and Hawaii 7- 9 p.m. Wicked Sexy Pole Dance Showcase presented by Pole at Play LifeSiteNews reported that this isn’t the first…
