The Lie Factory—CNN—Is Collapsing. Thank God. 

The Lie Factory—CNN—Is Collapsing. Thank God.

Paul Craig Roberts

CNN abandoned journalism and became a propaganda ministry for the Democratic National Committee and the corrupt upper echelons of the CIA and FBI. After three years of telling the most outrageous lies ever associated with an alleged news organization in an alleged democracy, CNN’s viewership collapsed. CNN turned propaganda ministry saw its primetime viewers shrink by 40%. Even insouciant Americans could see that CNN was nothing but a lie factory.

One would have thought CNN would have learned a lesson. But apparently not. The scum or fools, whichever it is, that runs CNN decided instead to tell even more lies. The propaganda ministry concocted an even less believable story than the ones that had driven away 40% of CNN viewers. The story “reported” by Alex Marquardt goes as follows:

Assange, being a Russian spy, turned the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he had asylum into a command post for arranging a US presidential election outcome that pleased the Russians. Marquardt spins a fantasy of how Assange from his embassy base, undeterred by Ecuadoran President Correa or the Ecuadoran ambassador to the UK, and aided with deliveries of hacked materials and suspicious meetings with Rusians and world-class hackers, undermined the American presidential election.

This gibberish from CNN comes after US Federal District judge Dabney Friedrich ruled that Mueller’s claim in his report of Russian “sweeping and systematic” meddling in the US election is nothing but an unsubstantiated allegation that constitutes nothing but an evidence-free indictment, thereby being an invalid indictment. The judge ordered Mueller to stop making false claims.

In other words, the Mueller report came up with nothing. Somehow CNN managed not to tell its viewers this basic fact.

Rafael Correa, the President of Ecuador during most of Assange’s asylum, branded the CNN story as “rubbish,” the purpose of which is to make the American people believe the obvious frameup of Assange that Washington is planning for him:

“What CNN and other media are saying is rubbish, but we’re used to it. They are prepping for the show [trial]. The reason is, when they extradite Assange to the US and sentence him to life, they want the backing of the public. They are setting the stage.”

Here we have two more reasons America is exceptional. The news consists of lies, and the function of the US Department of Justice (sic) is to arrange show trials and frame innocent people.

Gotta be impressed with the right wing ability for transference.

This Is How Fox News Brainwashes Its Viewers: Our In-Depth Investigation of the Propaganda Cycle




Oh and what the hell does God have to do with it???

I remember an America where God and your religion were reflected in the way you lived your life and interacted with people.

Today we have a huge cult that believes they personally Know God - I mean that’s the height of insanity, you petty, pathetic, self-obsessed EGO run wild. This is why America is sliding into a genuine living hell.

That you mr. alt-reality, you brainwashed sad saps


Well, that and unbridled avarice.

Thing is, Player probably believes Climate Change is some degree of hoax and white people are discriminated against, and taxpayers will pay for abortions. Hard to tell because he doesn’t say much, but since he’s saying CNN is rubbish, he’s revealing something. One fact-based network losing some of its share is really not much of an indicator of a change in the wind, but that’s typical Fox News, find a statistic that supports your conclusion and run with it.

Since 2004, Pew Research Center has issued an annual report on key audience and economic indicators for a variety of sectors within the U.S. news media industry. These data speak to the shifting ways in which Americans seek out news and information, how news organizations get their revenue, and the resources available to American journalists as they seek to inform the public about important events of the day. The press is sometimes called the fourth branch of government, but in the U.S., it’s also very much a business – one whose ability to serve the public is dependent on its ability to attract eyeballs and dollars.

As of August 2017, 43% of Americans report often getting news online, just 7 points lower than the 50% who often get news on television.

“The Lie Factory—CNN—Is Collapsing. Thank God.” Just how much do I agree with this statement? Answer – 100%.

Fox News has substantial growth as other networks are downsizing by 3,100 job cuts. In May CNN cut 100 employees. Right now, they are laying off by voluntary buyouts. Buyouts are use when removing upper management and contracts of disclosure are needed to prevent disclosure and liabilities.

CNN is seen in most US airports. The reason is that CNN pays the airports to leave the network on. And pays the all the related infrastructure costs. There are 323 million people who view CNN at airports. People have been complaining about CNN’s broadcasting at airports, but CNN has eight-year contracts with most airports. San Francisco’s contract is up next month, and the airport is not going to renew CNN’s contract. This will relieve the number of people watching news on cell phones at the airport.

Why is this happening? Why is Fox expanding and CNN downsizing? Simple, people don’t like FAKE NEWS! CNN has been forcing people to watch its broadcast at airports and the FAKE NEWS may end this market for CNN. At one time I thought CNN was great. Will not watch it today. It is not only FAKE NEWS, it has un-American values.

  1. Lausten that fox news is completely biased towards the right is uncontroversial. That MSM such as CNN claim to be objective (even left leaning), is.

Objective opinions are objective. That's what you're saying. News is not vetted scholarly information, it's up to the minute information that requires context and interpretation. TV news brings people on and introduces them as representatives of organizations that hold certain opinions. You could call that controversial if you want. I'd call it obvious. In an age where politicians are aware of how their message is presented via media, simply repeating what they say with no comment would be really poor journalism.

“TV news brings people on and introduces them as representatives of organizations that hold certain opinions”<

>Yes opinions but only those that conform with the corporate agenda.

Those opinions that challange power, the military industrial complex, the corporatation, capitalism - you could say the challenging the status quo politically and economically, rarely if ever get a hearing

player, your topic post has at least 2 glaring errors, I think. 1) Mueller got it right about Russia’s sweeping and systematic” meddling in our elections. He had evidence that supported that conclusion. There was no indictment of Trump himself, because the DOJ policy was NEVER going to allow that. (Yours and others spreading the LIES that there was no meddling by the Russians, gives cover to allowing them to continue on full throttle. It is even possible that they will actually change the voting machine votes this next time around, since Moscow Mitch won’t let legislators do anything about it.)

2)Your assertion that your Russian ass kisser Assange will get a life sentence is rather a stupid assertion. That ain’t gonna happen.

Tim, if you were to make a pie chart of voter meddling worldwide. What nation would be doing the most meddling?

Russia Isn’t the Only One Meddling in Elections. We Do It, Too. - Feb 17, 2018

US Interfered in Elections of at Least 85 Countries Worldwide Since … Aug 3, 2018

Voter meddling is reciprocal and between nations with the United States leading the pack. And there was meddling in the 2016 election. But it was not Trump. It was Hilary using the help of other nations including Russia. Our government departments had been doing meddling around the world, so when they got involved in America’s election they stepped over the line. The thinking by these department heads seems to be that Hilary was going to win, so there would be no problem is what is beginning to realized as this meddling is just starting to get revealed.


So mike, is ur point that the US has meddled in the affairs of other nations, in the past, thus we should now quietly acquiesce to having our elections raped by Russia?

or did u just want to get in another lie about Trump not doing anything wrong?
