There sure are a lot of PC Un-speakables these days! m/r
This week's World's Smallest Violin Award goes to Fake News Network CNN — specifically to be shared between Fake Newsman Jake Tapper and Fake Newsman Chris Cuomo, both of whom took whiny umbrage at being called Fake News while purveying Fake News.
Cuomo, who really needs to eat more brain food, even possibly more brains, said that being called Fake News while purveying Fake News is like being called the N-word. He later apologized, but not enough. He should have added banging his head repeatedly against a wall while saying, "Stupid, stupid, stupid," over and over again.
As for Tapper, he harried and berated a largely conciliatory presidential spokeswoman, Kellyanne Conway, for almost half an hour about how hard it is out there for a Fake Newsman to always be called a Fake Newsman while being Fake. "When it comes to the Trump administration," Tapper whined, "I would much rather be covering immigration, I would much rather be covering trade, and I would much rather be covering draining the swamp, and counter-terrorism, but instead, every day, there are these sprays of attack and sprays of falsehoods, coming from the White House. It would be better if they were not coming from the White House — for me and for you." Anyway, I think that's what he said, though it was tough to hear him over the screeching of the teensy-tiny little itsty-bitty violin playing in the background throughout.
The problem is this: CNN — like the New York Times, like the network news departments at NBC and ABC and CBS — is virtually the definition of Fake News, a phrase made up by the left to attack Trump but which blew up in their faces like a trick cigar when it turned out everyone knows what liars they've been for the past sixteen years at least.
