Corrections went out of style, bombshells fizzled, and too much of what we watched and read felt like insider propaganda

I believe in solving problems, not sharing them.


Jeezus, no kidding. One "bombshell" after another turned out to be squibs/ fake news.

Goodbye, kind world (George Monbiot) - In common with all those generations which have contemplated catastrophe, we appear to be incapable of understanding what confronts us.



CNN Settles $275M Lawsuit With 'Punchable' Teenager Nick Sandmann

CNN settled its $250 million lawsuit with Covington High School Student Nicholas Sandmann for an undisclosed sum on Tuesday.

Sandmann was viciously attacked by left-leaning news outlets over a deceptively edited video clip from the January, 2019 March for Life rally at the Lincoln Memorial, in which the teenager, seen wearing a MAGA hat, appeared to be mocking a Native American man beating a drum (a known political grifter who lied about the incident, and stole valor).

Around a day later, a longer version of the video revealed that Sandmann did absolutely nothing wrong - but not until the media had played judge, jury and executioner of Sandmann's reputation.

Interestingly, this wasn't covered by any major-media outlets except CNN and USAToday.

ETA: I see WaPo was HOURS behind the front runners in getting this out! But it still hasn't gotten widespread media coverage.

Good.

Look at the WaPo being quick to report on it. Are they trying to avoid having to pay up for their part in all of this?

Funny that they don't mention their own role. I look forward to CNN reporting on the WaPo.


I do hope that this is a strategy employed by the lawyer to set a president and that they're going to go to trial on future cases. It's a shame that CNN is getting off so easy.

Good for Nick, now he's a multi-millionaire set for life! I wish some leftist psycho Indian lunatic would get in my face. Not for any possible lawsuit money mind you, I'd just like to kick the shit out of him. Man that'd be so sweet!

As Part Of Settlement With Nick Sandmann, CNN Hosts Must Wear MAGA Hats During All Broadcasts

ATLANTA, GA—According to a report, as part of the settlement with Nick Sandmann, CNN hosts will be required to wear MAGA hats throughout every broadcast.

"Let the punishment fit the crime," counsel for Sandmann said as Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, Anderson Cooper, and Wolf Blitzer all solemnly donned Make America Great Again caps.

Hosts were seen with downcast expressions as they commented on the day's events, MAGA hats in place.

Sandmann says the hosts will be forced to wear the hats until they've learned their lesson, which could take a while. "Just be careful you don't make an expression some could construe as 'smug.' Wouldn't want you to get punched or your lives to get ruined, or anything like that."

CNN hosts must also finish every broadcast by saying, "Good night, and I am a big, fat dummy, while Trump is the best president we've ever had."

Brian Stelter requested an exemption and was allowed to wear a clown nose instead, as usual.
