CNN just doesn’t “get it”…and probably never will…
Oh, it just keeps getting better and better.
In the ongoing series of James O’Keefe/Project Veritas videos that have been exposing the extreme bias of CNN and their deliberate efforts to push fake news stories in their not-so-subtle efforts to take out President Trump, we now know that they believe that millions of everyday, working Americans are stupid…
In fact, they think that American voters are “stupid as sh*t”, at least according to one Jimmy Carr, who apparently works on CNN’s morning show, New Day.
Carr is a CNN producer who was caught on the video saying (about Donald Trump) that “on the inside, we all recognize he is a clown, that he is hilariously unqualified for this, he’s really bad at this, and that he does not have America’s best interests … We recognize he’s just f*cking crazy”.
He confirmed that this is the prevailing attitude of those who work for the network by saying, “90% of us are on board with just the fact that he’s crazy.”
CNN has been stepping on their own appendages so often in the last month that they have become the laughing stock of media. Between their forced retractions of fake stories and firings of editors, the Kathy Griffin “beheading”, their spinning of the Johnny Depp “time for an actor to kill a president again” remark into this being somehow the fault of Mr. Trump…now comes O’Keefe’s undercover videos.
The videos reveal that CNN’s president Jeff Zucker directed his reporters to keep reporting on “Russia”. For nearly a year, the MSM – especially CNN – have kept the Russia/Trump conspiracy theory front and center at the expense of far more significant news. This despite the fact that no less than nine separate investigations have revealed – to this date – nothing, nada, zip, zero evidence of any actual “collusion” between Trump, his campaign workers or his transition team and Russia. The second video released by O’Keefe has CNN’s Van Jones evidently calling the Russia story a “big nothing burger”.
In short, they are pushing a narrative front and center that has no substance, for only two reasons – ratings – and to continue to attack a president they neither like – nor can comprehend how it is that he won, over their favored candidate.
Here’s the problem for CNN – and it was revealed inadvertently by the hapless Jimmy Carr when he said that “90%” (of CNN employees) “were on board”. These people are living in a bubble. Very much like clueless celebrities from Hollyweird, they have no connection to normal, everyday people who largely supported Trump. Because they exist in this bubble, they have no contact with people who live in the real world. Those folks who live in “flyover” country are incomprehensible and irrelevant to them. It’s like middle class Americans don’t exist to these “geniuses”.
And that’s another problem – these elites in the media and the entertainment industry have vastly overrated their mental capacities. They presume to lecture everyday Americans who work to pay their bills, because if they see them at all, it’s only in the context that they present an obstacle to their socialist-utopian vision of a globalist, borderless society. As long as they are wealthy and can live in gated communities, they simply cannot relate to the problems that exist for most folks that are having to deal directly everyday with the problems that the elites’ “utopia” creates for everyone else.
Donald Trump won large swaths of these people because he both saw – and articulated what everyday Americans know and see.
CNN smugly calls millions of Americans “stupid as sh*t”, and then can’t believe or understand it when millions of American react by detesting them.
The fact is that when they continually attack Donald Trump with deliberate distortions and out and out lies, Trump supporters will not see this merely as an attack on Trump – they see it as an attack on themselves, their values…indeed the very country in which they grew up.
As long as CNN continues to remain in their bubble, and continues to push their propaganda at all costs, they will indeed – never get it.
