Conservatives are fighting for the minds and hearts of the American people—so if they can’t communicate directly to all Americans at their presidential convention, how will they win?
The Democrats and the media are ganging up on Republicans to keep their most important message silent. A major “news” outlet, CNN, is already tipping their hand during this convention.
Who is CNN’s audience? Once the go-to source of breaking news, for years the cable giant has been losing viewers to Fox News on the right and MSNBC on the left. Its coverage of the Republican National Convention is a prime example of how confused CNN really is about its own identity and that of its audience.
Joel B. Pollack noted two bizarre editorial decisions the cable channel made that seem blatantly biased:
CNN cut away from speakers who spoke out against illegal immigration at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland on Monday night, turning instead to its daily stable of talking heads, and coming back for a conventional politician’s speech.
Mary Ann Mendoza, Sabine Durden, and Jamiel Shaw, who each lost a child through crimes committed by illegal aliens, spoke from the heart about why they supported Donald Trump’s proposal to enforce immigration law and build a border wall.
The network did carry the live speech of Pat Smith, mother of Benghazi victim Sean Smith. But it bracketed her speech with fact-checking, suggesting that despite her feelings that Hillary Clinton was to blame, there was no direct link to the former Secretary of State. CNN’s fact-checker later labeled the claim that Clinton was responsible for the Benghazi deaths as “false.”
It’s hard to escape the conclusion that CNN is doing unpaid public relations work for the Clinton campaign and hoping millions of Americans don’t notice.
