I wrote earlier about the troubling CNN segment where there was discussion about how to shut down right wing media outlets like Newsmax and OAN, as well as how to shut down conservatives whose CNN apparently were disturbed had more following then them.

That’s a significant danger that can happen to any or all of us on the right when even the leader of the free world can be shut down by Big Tech. So that’s why we thank you, readers, for standing with us, because it’s troubling to see censoring efforts like these to try to shut down those around us.
But beyond the danger of censorship, what’s incredible from folks like CNN is the utter hubris they have and the lack of self-awareness they have.
Check out Jake Tapper in these two tweets, first tweeting someone else’s words.
“Those outlets that propagate lies to their audience have unleashed insidious and uncontrollable forces that will be with us for years."

“Those outlets that propagate lies to their audience have unleashed insidious and uncontrollable forces that will be with us for years.”
Then here he is responding to H.R. McMaster about the problem of lying media.

He’s furious that McMaster would even suggest there could be a question about CNN.
“There are channels in which lies are told and there are channels in which facts are told & people who want the lies, they don’t come here,” Tapper preened. “They go to a different channel”
Oh, please! CNN is a font of lies that well earned the president’s calling them “fake news.” They have Chris Cuomo interviewing his brother the Governor of New York and don’t care about the conflict of interest, painting Andrew Cuomo as a hero against the pandemic when his response was horrific, with thousands dying after his nursing home order and having the highest amount of deaths of all the states.

Tapper and his network pushed the Russia Hoax for four years and blamed innocent people for a high school shooting. If you have any respect for the truth, you don't watch CNN

What they’re concerned about is control. Maintaining the Democratic narrative on things and doing all they can to shut down those on the right. But now they can’t control the narrative, people have long since tossed them over. There are too many different media sources as competition. CNN can’t even make it in airports anymore, they even lost that little bit of viewership they had. If people can get the truth elsewhere, why would they ever go to CNN for the lies?
