“Billionaire John Malone: CNN Needs ‘Actual Journalists'” Newsmax

and

Foxnews is rid of two parasites. Good!

CNN’s ratings have collapsed over 50% in the past year and may be suffering from a credibility gap with viewers.

After several years of false and inaccurate reporting about a so-called effort by the Trump campaign to collude with Russia to manipulate the 2016 elections, CNN last week reluctantly admitted its reporting fell short of the facts.

Several probes, including that of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, found no evidence Trump or his campaign engaged in any collusion with Russia.

And the basis of the allegations were made in the Steele Dossier, an investigative report that had been paid for by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and found to be almost completely baseless.

Last March, a Hill-HarrisX poll found that 47% of registered voters believe CNN holds a liberal bias in its reporting.

In the wake of revelations about the Steele dossier, The Washington Post has moved to correct numerous stories that included false reporting, but CNN has refused to edit and notify their readers and viewers of false statements it had reported as true.” Newsmax

“In an open letter, Steve Hayes and Jonah Goldberg said: “Fox News still does real reporting, and there are still responsible conservatives providing valuable opinion and analysis. But the voices of the responsible are being drowned out by the irresponsible.

“A case in point: Patriot Purge, a three-part series hosted by Tucker Carlson.”

As Hayes and Goldberg noted on the Dispatch, an outlet they founded in 2019, Patriot Purge showed on the Fox Nation streaming service but was promoted on Fox News.

The three-part series recycles conspiracy theories about the Capitol attack, in which supporters of Donald Trump attacked Congress on 6 January in an attempt to overturn his election defeat by Joe Biden.

Hayes and Goldberg, formerly writers with the Weekly Standard and the National Review, said the series was “presented in the style of an exposé, a hard-hitting piece of investigative journalism. In reality, it is a collection of incoherent conspiracy-mongering, riddled with factual inaccuracies, half-truths, deceptive imagery and damning omissions.”

Goldberg told the New York Times he and Hayes had stayed on at Fox News in the hope it would recover independence from Trump.

But as goes the Republican party, so goes Fox News. In their resignation letter, Hayes and Goldberg wrote: “Over the past five years, some of Fox’s top opinion hosts amplified the false claims and bizarre narratives of Donald Trump or offered up their own in his service. In this sense, the release of Patriot Purge wasn’t an isolated incident, it was merely the most egregious example of a longstanding trend.”” The Guardian

Comment: In re CNN, this sounds as though people like Don Lemon are probably not going to survive this change of ownership at CNN. Blitzer used to be a “real journalist.” I hope he survives the purge and gets his head screwed on right.

With regard to Goldberg and Hayes, Goldberg is a thinly disguised Ziocon who, if memory serves, actually served in the IDF in one of their wars as some sort of air force ground staff and subsequently as a reservist. IOW he is a foreign soldier. Steven Hayes is a total fraud who published a book at the “suggestion” of Feith’s band of neocon distorters of available intelligence about Iraq and Iraq’s supposed assistance to AQ in its attacks on the US. This book was based on a series of DIA field reports that DIA itself had rejected as incorrect. But, pilgrim turcopoles, these rejected reports fit the narrative that Feith was pushing and so Hayes made a book out of this trash. pl

  1. TV says:

    Just more swamp rats.
    How soon before they show up on CNN or MSNBC as “conservative” commentators?

  2. Babeltuap says:

    Their overlords were fine running financially in the red if the propaganda was working but it failed. People by and large have tuned out and tuned into alt media. Many of the alt internet shows more than double views of legacy media on a daily basis.

    They tried to plug them with blacklisting and censoring but like water, it always finds a way to seep out. If anything, they created more free speech allys, not less. There are so many of them now legacy media has to dry dock their beaten fleet and re-configure it but that will also fail.

    It will fail because they refuse to admit none of the measures to contain the virus worked. The “super spreader” events was a lie, masks were a lie, distancing was a lie and lockdowns caused more harm to society than the virus itself just like Dr. Henderson of Smallpox fame said it would. He said people would lose faith in the government and the media with restrictive measures. So congratulations. We are now at this checkpoint.

    i am so happy Mr Malone is going to change things at CNN and get some real journalist and get rid of the the liberal liars. all we want are the true facts reported so we the public can inform our own opinions

    • TV says:

      Problem is:
      Where does he find “real” journalists?
      It seems that 99% of “journalists” are Democrat activists with press credentials.
      Journalism schools, like the rest of higher “education,” are 100% far left and far, far left.
      Aside from the bias, ever have personal knowledge of an event and then read/hear about it in the media?
      “Accuracy” that’s a funny word, what does it mean?

      • Fred says:

        TV,

        He could hire Project Veritas people. Other than Biden’s people going crazy and the FBI going after him it would work out great.

      • Bill Roche says:

        I always thought accuracy meant truth but what do I know. In an earlier life I had a job providing campaign materials to Nixon’s Advance Men. After a smashing Sunday Nixon rally, I got a call from a Chicago Advance Man for more stuff. Next morning I got to the office and asked “the boss” to explain the morning NYT coverage of the event. The Times said it was “tepid”. “Welcome to the world young man” said the boss and threw me Monday’s WSJ. It was September of ’68. I learned journalists don’t always tell the truth.

  4. BillWade says:

    There are you tube channels that get more views than CNN.

  5. Pollyella says:

    “Ziocon”: perfect, thanks, revered Colonel.
    I hope you & SWMBO are WELL at last 🎵, and Cheers for giving us your special insights every day.

  6. Fred says:

    Jonah Cuckberg is gone? Good riddance. I see the PTB are ressurecting the littlest chickenhawk, Ben Shapiro. I expect we’ll be seeing far too much of him soon.

  7. BillWade says:

    Don Lemon’s life could get exciting in the coming months, not only may he lose his job he’s also contending with a alleged rape case of a young waiter who will not accept a payoff, it’s been attempted 3 times now and I think it will have to go to court.

    Where’s the Ghislaine trial?

  8. mcohooter says:

    thank the lord.about time cnn cleaned up it’s act with issues provided

  9. Anyone wants to clear MSNBC cesspool and, especially, Rachel Maddow? I would also pay attention to the world-renown “expert” on KGB “operations” Malcolm Nance among whose accomplishments are being chief petty officer in cryptology, graduating some on-line college and, and I quote from his bio from WiKi:

    Nance took part in combat operations that occurred after the 1983 Beirut barracks bombings, was peripherally involved with the 1986 United States bombing of Libya, served on USS Wainwright during Operation Praying Mantis and was aboard during the sinking of the Iranian missile boat Joshan, served on USS Tripoli during the Gulf War, and assisted during a Banja Luka, Bosnia air strike.

    Boy, Red Banner (Andropov) Institute (I am sure) has a whole course on this dude in Intelligence Analysis and his portraits, most likely, adorn most Russian military and intelligence academies as the guy to be feared because of his “study of KGB operations”. G(R)U people tremble from this “intelligence professional” name alone. I am sure SVR has a couple of deep-cover agents working to eliminate him because he knows so much and discloses it to Rachel Maddow all the time on the air at MSNBC. The names of those SVR agents are Petrov and Boshirov. He should look out for them.

  10. Mikew says:

    I believe you are thinking of Jeffrey Goldberg in regards to a media person that served in the IDF. He was a prison guard over there. He worked for The Atlantic. A nasty ziocon.

    Jonah Goldberg is a pasty clown who never even had the resolve to do the IDF bit.
