CNN’s Don Lemon Becomes Hate Hoax Apologist Overnight

While the accusations are far, far different, this “court of public opinion” is in fact the same figurative judicial institution that condemns Brett Kavanaugh still to this day.

Don Lemon

We live in strange times, my friends, as the liberal left continues to turn toward socialism and antisemitism in some strange repeat of not a century ago.

Hate is in the air, both literally and in the sense of aura surrounding the act.  Television “news” networks, sensing an opportunity to race bait you into watching a commercial break, have been working overtime in recent days, attempting to downplay their once exuberant belief in the story of Jussie Smollett.

Smollett, an actor, has now been implicated in at least one hate crime hoax, in which police say the television star paid two on-set extras to racially harass him for his own publicity.

Smollett has been arrested on charges of filing a false report, yet CNN’s Don Lemon seems to still find the actor a victim…somehow.

During his opening monologue, Lemon told his viewers that the story was “personal” since he and Smollett had been acquaintances and were in constant communication since the alleged incident and that Smollett told Lemon what he said had happened to him, which he admitted raised lots of questions.

He stressed that while Smollett is “innocent until proven guilty,” he still “squandered the good will of a whole lot of people” if his story wasn’t true.

“He even lied to a lot of people… including me. And that’s not cool,” Lemon said to his viewers. “He squandered the good will of very high-profile people who one day may be running this country like Kamala Harris and Cory Booker and people like President Trump.”

But then came a perspective that perhaps crossed the line for many viewers.

Lemon insisted that Smollett has already “lost the fight in the court of public opinion,” but he hesitated to blame him for that defeat.

While the accusations are far, far different, this “court of public opinion” is in fact the same figurative judicial institution that condemns Brett Kavanaugh still to this day.

Worse still, this puts Don Lemon squarely in the corner of a near-serial hate crime hoaxer.

Giuliani Jilted: Fox News Bans Rudy and Son from Appearing on Network

This, after Rudy was integral in bringing Fox News to the mainstream.

Published

on

In the latest bit of fallout from Donald Trump’s first term as President, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has been banned by Fox News.

Giuliani, who served as the personal attorney for Donald Trump during much of his presidency, is currently in legal limbo, having lost his ability to practice law in New York while facing a rather sizable defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems.

Now, as many continue to wonder how much influence Trump will have on the future of the Republican Party, Giuliani has taken a major publicity hit.

Prior to a scheduled appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Sept. 11, “Fox & Friends Weekend” co-host Pete Hegseth apparently called the former New York City mayor the night before and apologized, telling him he had been canceled from their guest list.

The decision was particularly troubling for Rudy.

A source close to the former New York City mayor told Playbook that Giuliani was upset by the decision because he had “done a big favor” for Fox Corp. founder and Chairman Rupert Murdoch.

“He was instrumental in getting Fox on Time Warner so it could be watched in New York City,” the source told Playbook.

Giuliani’s son Andrew is also reportedly banned from the network, although no official reasoning has been given for either action.

CNN’s Cuomo Accused of Heinous Sexual Assault, Complete with Tone-Deaf Apology

As of this writing, Cuomo is still employed by CNN.

Published

on

Just months after his brother finally succumbed to heavy public pressure to resign as Governor of New York, Chris Cuomo is now facing similar accusations of sexual misconduct stemming from  workplace incident in 2005.

Andrew Cuomo, the disgraced Empire State Lawmaker, was accused by no less than 9 women of sexual abuse, assault, and harassment during his time in the governor’s mansion.  During the public fallout, it was determined that he had reached out to his brother Chris Cuomo, the CNN anchor, in order to pool PR resources – something that the younger Cuomo apologized for on-air.

One has to wonder what sort of apology is on the horizon now.

In a guest essay for the New York Times, former executive producer Shelley Ross outlined an incident where Cuomo, who came under fire this year for giving private advice to his brother New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo during his sexual harassment scandal, squeezed the cheek of her buttock without her permission in 2005. She also produced an email where Chris Cuomo appeared to admit to the incident and apologize for his behavior.

“At the time, I was the executive producer of an ABC entertainment special, but I was Mr. Cuomo’s executive producer at ‘Primetime Live’ just before that,” she wrote. “I was at the party with my husband, who sat behind me on an ottoman sipping his Diet Coke as I spoke with work friends. When Mr. Cuomo entered the Upper West Side bar, he walked toward me and greeted me with a strong bear hug while lowering one hand to firmly grab and squeeze the cheek of my buttock.”

Cuomo’s apology email has also been heavily criticized, as it appears to show more defense to Ross’ husband than to her.

Cuomo, who was 34 at the time of the alleged incident, asked Ross to pass along an apology to her “very good and noble husband,” and also “I apologize to you as well, for even putting you in su]ch a position.” He added he would remember his lesson the next time he was happy to see her.
