WATCH: CNN Throws Massive Temper Tantrum, Check Out The Reason Why

So childish.

Published

Left-leaning news network CNN is not exactly in the good graces of the White House, given how hard they’ve fought against the Trump administration over the last year and a half, doing anything and everything in their power to take non-stories — like the Russia probe — and turn them into weapons of political mass destruction.

The president and the network have been at each other’s throats on numerous occasions, with Trump labeling CNN “fake news” and even going so far as to toss their reporters out of press conferences.

Well, that war is continuing to rage on as the network has been banned from an EPA press event, a move that really ruffled the feathers of host Brian Stelter.

Stelter suggested that the government agency couldn’t be held accountable unless CNN was there, and lead anchor Wold Blitzer agreed. “Yeah, it’s pretty outrageous indeed,” he said, according to NewsBusters. “And another reporter inside saying there were empty seats in that room. Brian Stelter, first of all, how are the Associated Press and CNN responding?”

“By saying this is unacceptable, especially because as your banner on screen says the EPA chief has been embattled,” Stelter said. “Everywhere you turn, there seems to be another scandal involving the EPA. This is an agency that cries out for accountability coverage right now and we need to know what the heck is going on in [EPA director Scott] Pruitt’s office, and with his deputies, and with his agency. And instead, what we’re seeing is the door being closed, and in some cases literally.”

“Let’s be honest Wolf, both of us know there’s always a push and pull between the news media and government,” Stelter continued. “That’s the way it is. But government agencies have been pushing harder lately, much more aggressively closing the door, sometimes literally. Especially in response to reporters who are pursuing accountability stories, trying to hold the government accountable.”

Perhaps the good folks at CNN would actually be allowed to participate in press events if they’d stop dedicating so much of their time and energy to lying their rear ends off each and every time they cover a story about the president?

Most people know at this point that CNN will not tell them the complete facts of a story unless they fit the narrative they want to push. What doesn’t fit they twist or completely fabricate. Why would the administration want these people present if they know they won’t do their job as journalists and uphold the integrity of the profession by reporting facts?

Until these folks stop and smell the coffee, they should expect to be treated this way.

Liberal Legal Scholar Slams Twitter Over Censoring Trump; Declares ‘Free Speech’ Ultimate ‘Loser’

Published

on

Jonathan Turley, a constitutional law scholar recently warned that Twitter’s choice to fact-check and hide certain tweets from President Trump threatens the concept of free speech in the Unites States. Turley, a liberal, published a blog Friday that said, “Twitter is now making the case for government action to monitor and control social media. The ultimate loser will be free speech.” Thursday night, President Trump reacted to some of the violence and looting happening in the city of Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd, calling those responsible for the chaos “thugs” and threatened to cut loose the military in the city to get control over the situation. In a now hidden tweet, Trump said, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.” Twitter then hid the tweet, requiring users to click an arrow in order for it to be seen, stating that it broke the rules by “glorifying violence.” Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “I am still leery of the government intervening on social media,” Turley wrote. “Free speech has few advocates in this fight. It is primary a struggle between Twitter, Trump, and the Democrats over who controls such speech.” Turley said he did not agree with the content of Trump’s tweets about the Minneapolis protesters but that they should not be censored. “Twitter had the chance to admit error and return to neutrality in the interest of free speech. It is clearly more concerned with expressing its views than preserving its forum,” he said. “Frankly, I would not care about such self-inflicted wounds except that free speech will likely suffer the collateral damage from Twitter’s glorifying speech controls.” Turley is right. Twitter has had plenty of opportunities over the last few years to change their strategies involving the engagement of content posted to their site. Instead, they…

Twitter Tags White House Tweet With Warning Label Over Message It Says Broke Rules About ‘Glorifying Violence’

Published

on

Twitter continues to go at it with President Trump, even after he signed an executive order that labeled social media platforms as publishers, thus opening them up to lawsuits over silencing opinions. The White House poked Twitter and basically dared them to put a warning label on the president’s tweet concerning the violence in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd for a second time. They did. One would think that Twitter would get the message, but they aren’t. Guess they’ll have to get sued a bunch and lose a lot of money before they finally understand that folks, especially the president, aren’t going to take the censorship anymore. Here are more details from The Washington Examiner: Twitter said the White House account “violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence” after it repeated a tweet from the president that called the protesters “THUGS” and implied they could be shot. This happened after Trump first posted the tweet on his personal account early Friday morning, and Twitter placed a warning label on it. https://twitter.com/JTHVerhovek/status/1266363516153364480 “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen,” the tweet read. “Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!” Twitter didn’t remove the tweets posted by the White House and from Trump’s account, but they are hidden and require users to click an arrow in order for them to be seen. There is a message placed over the tweets that says: “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.” As you can see, liberals…
