Larry King Lays Out Nasty Truths About Former Employer

Remember, folks: CNN only exists to sell commercials.

There is undoubtedly a struggle occurring within the media today, with their very existence seemingly on the line at every turn of the page and every cut to commercial.

Sure, some of this animosity has come to us from the Oval Office, with President Trump insisting that the corporate media is out to get him.  In some cases, there is little doubt that his accusations hold water, but it is his bombastic nature that has allowed the media to defend themselves so earnestly.

The real problem is, and this shouldn’t be a shocker to anyone:  The mainstream media isn’t news, it’s entertainment.  They aren’t doing a service to the country at all; they are simply providing a platform for advertisers to target you.

They lead you into commercial breaks with cliffhangers.  They scare you with lines like “something in your house could kill you, find out what tonight at 11”.

So, should it really surprise us that longtime CNN host Larry King has finally called them out for it?

In speaking with Rick Sanchez of RT America, King had the following to say:

“Two things, Rick — the internet and cable news. Could you imagine cable news in Watergate? And they don’t do news anymore. In fact, RT is one of the few channels doing news. RT does news. CNN stopped doing news a long time ago. They do Trump. Fox is Trump TV and MSNBC is anti-Trump all the time. You don’t see a story — there was vicious winds and storms in the Northeast the other day – not covered on any of the three cable networks, not covered. Not covered! So when CNN started covering Trump — they were the first — they covered every speech he made and then they made Trump the story. So, Trump is the story in America. I would bet that ninety-eight percent of all Americans mention his name at least once a day. And when it’s come to that, when you focus on one man, I know Donald 40 years — I know the good side of Donald and I know the bad side of Donald — I think he would like to be a dictator. I think he would love to be able to just run things. So, he causes a lot of this. Then his fight with the media and fake news. I’ve been in the media a long time, like you — longer than you, Rick. And at all my years at CNN, in my years at Mutual Radio, I have never seen a conversation where a producer said to a host “pitch the story this way. Angle it that way. Don’t tell the truth.” Never saw it. Never saw it.”

Sure, Larry went a bit off the rails toward the end there, but his points about the state of television media are as poignant as they are uncomfortable.

Resistance Rises Against Michigan Governor As Biden Running Mate Decision Draws Near

Very interesting…

It seems that Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is watching her chances of being chosen as Joe Biden’s vice president for the upcoming election are getting slimmer by the minute as more and more resistance to her governorship rises up after two very unflattering stories emerge about her and how she’s handled the coronavirus pandemic in her state. However, she’s not alone in scrutiny. Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico is also being criticized for her handling of the crisis. The criticisms of both women have happened simultaneously, after reports emerging detailing how they violated their own lockdown rules for personal benefit. Here are the details from The Washington Examiner: In April, Lujan Grisham reportedly purchased jewelry from a close friend who runs a store in Albuquerque despite issuing an order just days before, asking that New Mexicans only leave home for food and medical supplies. “We are in really tough financial times as a state. It mirrors the incredible, personal sacrifices that happen every single day because people have limited their ability to work, telecommuting, and many people, in fact, have lost their jobs,” she said on April 3. Lujan Grisham’s office maintains that she did not violate the order because the transaction was “entirely contact-free,” as Lujan Grisham had a friend pick up the purchased piece of jewelry at the owner’s home. Republicans in the state noted that curbside pickup from stores wasn’t allowed until May 1, weeks after Lujan Grisham bought the jewelry. The New Mexico Republican Party posted up a tweet on Wednesday saying, “Our Governor is the latest Democrat to decide that the rules they impose on their citizens to address the COVID-19 pandemic don’t apply to her. A bombshell report reveals that the governor violated her own stay-at-home order to stock up on some high-end…

Lindsey Graham Suggests It’s ‘Not A Bad Idea’ For Senate Judiciary Committee To Hold Hearings On Police Violence

Published

Sen. Lindsey Graham has come out and stated that the idea for the Senate Judiciary Committee to hold hearing regarding the subject of police violence against black citizens isn’t a bad idea. This suggestion comes after the violent and tragic death of Minneapolis resident George Floyd, after a law enforcement officer put his knee against his neck while attempting to detain him. As of right now, the city of Minneapolis is full of angry residents who have taken to the street, rioting and looting over the incident, burning some local businesses to the ground. Graham made an appearance on the Hugh Hewitt radio program on Thursday where he was asked whether or not the Senate Judiciary Committee should look into instances of police brutality against black citizens. Graham answered that this is something he most definitely intends to pursue. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “I think a lot of African Americans have a legitimate claim to a hearing on the issue of police violence against African American men in these situations. What do you think, Senator Graham?” Hewitt asked. “You know, that’s not a bad idea at all,” Graham responded while adding that he does not want to interfere with the investigation into the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who was pronounced dead at a hospital after a Minneapolis police officer pinned him down by placing a knee on the back of his neck for approximately eight minutes until he became unresponsive. Graham suggested that folks need to take a few steps back from things and really look at the overall picture of the incidents of police violence against black citizens and the frequency with which they keep occurring. “To take a 30,000-foot view of things: Why does this happen? How often is it? Is it…
