From day one, CNN has made no secret about their vitriolic hatred for Donald Trump and everything he stands for. Wikileaks exposed the “Clinton News Network” doing everything they could to hand Hillary Clinton the presidency, even going as far as leaking debate questions to the Clinton campaign, via then DNC Chair, Donna Brazile.
And who can forget CNN host Chris Cuomo’s recent comment: “This really speaks to incompetence. They can’t keep the president-elect from making a fool of himself on Twitter.”
The Trump administration has had enough.
Politico is now reporting that the Trump administration is refusing to allow any of their spokespeople or surrogates on CNN. White House officials say the ban is not permanent.
The report also included a quote from a CNN reporter, who said “The White House is trying to punish the network and force down its ratings,” adding “They’re trying to cull CNN from the herd.”
Actually, CNN’s ratings are already in the toilet.
On inauguration day, Fox News channel more than tripled the ratings of CNN and MSNBC… combined. Everyone knows CNN has become an arm of the Democrat Party. What CNN doesn’t understand is that when their opinions, disguised as news, becomes this predictable, it becomes boring.
Since the inauguration, Trump surrogates have been making the rounds on all the major Sunday news shows with the exception of CNN’s “State Of The Union.”
In early January, CNN published a fake report about Trump being vulnerable to blackmail due to Russian evidence of Trump spending time with Russian prostitutes. At a press conference the next day, Trump refused to take a question from CNN reporter Jim Acosta, who shouted out to him to answer his question since he was attacking his news organization. Trump responded that he wouldn’t take his question because he represented “fake news”.
It is so refreshing to finally have a Republican president who is a fighter, and who is not afraid to take on the liberal media fearlessly, and head-on.
The winning seems to never stop, and watching our new president slay liberalism never gets old.
Maybe this will make CNN start to treat Republicans more fairly. But don’t count on it.
