Michelle Malkin has a thing or two to say about fake news… and CNN! The blunt conservative woman completely exposed the unabashed bias going on at the cable news network both during the 2016 presidential election and now that they are covering president-elect instead of candidate Donald Trump.
“It’s the condescending attitude that is rendering them more and more irrelevant,”Michelle Malkin said of CNN. “Because look, these people, especially on the left, do not think that anybody who doesn’t think like them can practice journalism…These people have no intellectual honesty, no integrity.”
Malkin said she was among the first wave of citizen journalists and conservative bloggers who called out the fake news being delivered by the mainstream media. She specifically cited CNN as a purveyor of sham news and making up their own set of facts when covering Republicans.
Michelle Malkin and Sean Hannity pointed to CNN Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour as an example of a liberal whiner trying to claim Donald Trump is a threat to the free press. The talking heads are in a panic because they are being called to task over their biased coverage and being kept out of the loop for the first time in modern history.
“I have covered enough of my colleagues, who have ended up, as I put it, in cages in kangaroos courts in places like Cairo or in Moscow, on trial for being inciters…” Christiane Amanpour said. “I feel I have to stand up for my own tribe in the United States.”
Enough with the drama, mainstream media. You are not under attack by Donald Trump—you are merely being ignored and put in the penalty box until you start behaving like true journalists!
Donald Trump has every right to lambaste any network or reporter who churns out fake news and covers him unfairly. His brutally honest insults DO NOT equate to an attack on the free press—it simply indicates he will exercise discretion when deciding which networks and so-called journalists will get interviews.
“If the press would cover me accurately and honorably, I would have far less to ‘tweet’ about. Sadly, I don’t know if that will ever happen,” Donald Trump tweeted. Michelle Malkin said the mainstream media “hates” Trump for utilizing new media to reach We the People. She is absolutely right.
“There’s always been this sort of dependent relationship between most of these career politicians and the Washington, D.C. press corps,” Malkin said. “They matter less and less now, and in large part it is because of citizen journalism.”
The mainstream media have been forced to sit back and watch as their power to control information is being circumvented. The liberal pundits see the writing on the wall—one day soon they too will become as antiquated as the morning newspaper.
