The wanks at Blab and others on this side of the political Great Divide are yukking it up because Brian Stelter got canned the other day. I dunno what to think of that, I pulled the plug on CNN probably close to 10 or 12 years ago. I never saw Stelter perform. Or any of the other barking seals, really.
Now the chattering skulls over there are saying they want to get back to “real” journalism and I get that. The problem is that they started doing yellow journalism. Guys like Stelter may be the paid actor that deliver the lines….but it’s his bosses that I hate and loathe. They are the reason CNN sucks. Those guys hate me, my race and my gender. They lie with everything they say… and they are still very much present and in charge at the network.
Even if they sacked the creepy neoliberal jews that run things on the executive level over there… I dunno if I’d ever consider them as a trusted source. I have sources now - blogs, social media, alt tech… and they are run by guys that don’t insult me, advocate for my erasure or my enemies, that welcome my input and will even respond to me directly whereas the mass media will censor me without a second thought. They made it plain that they didn’t need or want my participation in the public square as they defined it… so I left. I have no need of CNN…even if they cleaned up their act.
I’d like to see the same thing happen to the CBC up here in Canada. To be sure, I hate and loathe them for the same reason I do with CNN. But they are govt funded; and their ratings make CNN’s look stellar. The CBC is so bad that not even the lefties are watching it. They cost us billions of dollars a year.
Would you ever trust these guys again?
