Today, America demarks one year of Biden’s house-on-fire. While his legislative agenda was burned to ashes last night, his illegal OSHA mandate for private business was also buried in a shallow grave by the Supreme Court, his media sycophants are still cheerleading for the team and hurling insults at the other sideline.
CNN has plenty of Democrat cheerleaders — Brian Stelter and Don Lemon come to the fore. But Brianna Keilar can’t be ignored, even though America seems to ignore her and her show “New Day.”
“New Day” just produced a lengthy commentary, with Keilar devoting an entire segment to bashing Fox News, the “mothership of misinformation,” and the captain of the ship, Tucker Carlson. Keilar smugly ran through the sins of both Fox News and Carlson.
Sorry, I’m not going to dissect the entire commentary. But here is the theme — Fox isn’t news, it’s propaganda, and its chief propagandist is Tucker Carlson.
We can’t discuss the wave of disinformation jeopardizing American democracy without talking about the mothership: Fox. I don’t call it news, even if they do, because it’s not news. #RollTheTape #DemocracyInPeril pic.twitter.com/9yafVMwqfJ

She began with a cut of Carlson saying J6 wasn’t a terrorist attack or an insurrection. She then cuts to Christopher Wray discussing domestic terrorism, and J6. Cut back to Keilar with a smug “HMMMMmmmm?” look on her face.
Brianna reminded her four viewers that the DOJ has, in fact, charged individuals with “sedition.” But all the clips she showed to try to own Carlson were from before AG Garland charged people with sedition. The axiom that the government can “indict a ham sandwich” is apt here.
Keilar concluded with a pretty odd wrap-up. She cut to clips of Carlson and Jesse Watters talking about the Kyle Rittenhouse case being a “clear-cut case of self-defense.”
“And when Fox needs to fill up its primetime lineup, who do they install, Tucker-light (Watters) who has fashioned himself in the image of Fox’s demigod of delusion and disinformation.”
Huh? It was self-defense Bri. Rittenhouse was found not guilty, Bri. I know you and the CNN crew don’t agree with the verdict, but that’s not an own of Fox. It’s another self-own, rake-to-the-face.
Anyway, cut back to Bri.
“Actually it’s a clear-cut case of how to cultivate an echo chamber, or a gremlin. Water it, feed it, until it multiples. The only thing that stops it? Sunlight.”
Smug Bri face is then shown, side-to-side, with a clip from the movie “Gremlins,” with the Gremlins singing Christmas carols.
CNN is just as bad at metaphors as it is at attracting viewers.
