I always enjoy listening to Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL). He did not disappoint when he ripped into CNN for fake news on the House floor. It was glorious. He called CNN the “fake news king” which is spot on. The fiery speech detailed three separate instances of CNN deliberately getting the facts wrong and spreading fake news as propaganda for the left.
Brooks started out with, “Mr. Speaker, while CNN has had a rotten, no good, horrible week, the American people have had a great week because last week exposed the CNN vitriol, prejudice, bias, and deception that crown CNN the Fake News King.” For any American paying attention out there it has been obvious that CNN is guilty of all of that so much more.
First Brooks took on the phony BuzzFeed story against President Trump. The story accused Trump of suborning purgery through Michael Cohen… that Trump told him to lie to Congress. It was so dishonest and so unprovable that it got a rare response from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who in no uncertain terms called it a lie.
As bad as that was, even worse was CNN’s smearing of the Covington Catholic High School students. That one is going to get them sued for libel. They painted the boys as racist thugs in MAGA hats when the exact opposite was true. Nathan Phillips, the elder Native American, is a professional leftist activist and antagonist. He aggressively got in the boys’ faces with his drum after the Black Hebrew Israelites spewed vicious hateful rhetoric at the Native Americans and the teens. The only place that really covered that detail in-depth was The Blaze.
Last but certainly not least, Brooks covered CNN doing a fact-check “on illegal alien and border security crime data comments by various Republicans.” CNN brought politics and opinion into the mix and tried to skew data and facts. They tried to take direct aim at Mo Brooks over that one and failed miserably.
Here is the full text of Brooks’ speech on the House floor – it is an absolute shredding of CNN and I thoroughly enjoyed it:
“Mr. Speaker, while CNN has had a rotten, no good, horrible week, the American people have had a great week because last week exposed the CNN vitriol, prejudice, bias and deception that crown CNN the Fake News King.
“First, CNN Fake News story Number 1.
“For two days, CNN drooled over President Trump impeachment propaganda in a BuzzFeed report that was so bad it prompted a rare public rebuke and “not true” proclamation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
“CNN, Strike One!
“Second, CNN Fake News story Number 2.
“CNN viciously and wrongly attacked, ridiculed, slandered and maligned Covington Catholic High School students by portraying them as racists.
“By and large, these teenagers at a pro-life march were white, males, Catholic, and, heaven forbid, President Trump supporters with Make America Great Again hats! CNN’s prejudice against this profile blinded CNN to reality.
“Had CNN done its homework, CNN would have reported from the very beginning that the students were the victims of African American racists who hurled insults at and sought to intimidate white teenage students and the victims of Native American political activists who rudely accosted the students, beat a drum in their faces, and yelled that white people should leave America!
“Did “Fake News” CNN report from the very beginning this racism against white people and how remarkably well these Catholic High School students handled this situation? No. Sadly, CNN’s bias and prejudice did not allow that.
“CNN, Strike Two!
“Third, CNN Fake News story Number 3.
“CNN did a poorly researched “fact check” on illegal alien and border security crime data comments by various Republicans, including me.
“The segment opened with New Day host Alisyn Camerota deriding “fact-free fear-mongering” from “[Trump] supporters.”
“If you support border security and protecting American lives you are a fact-free, fear mongering, Trump supporter who must be attacked at all cost? Is that really CNN’s viewpoint?
“CNN’s John Avlon then falsely claimed I said a border wall is the way to keep death-dealing drugs out of America when I clearly stated a border wall is a necessary subpart of a broader border security strategy required to slow down drugs crossing over our southern border and save American lives.
“That truth didn’t fit CNN’s blind fealty to open border, Socialist Democrats so CNN deceived rather than tell the truth.
“CNN next showed me stating that federal officers apprehended roughly 2,000 illegal aliens per year for homicides on American soil. That’s fine. That’s true.
“The federal government’s Immigration and Custom Enforcement and Removal Operations Reports state federal officers apprehended 1,886 illegal aliens in FY 2017 and 2,028 illegal aliens in FY 2018 for homicides committed on American soil.
“But CNN’s John Avlon attacked this federal crime data by citing an unrelated Politifact analysis and making an “apples and oranges” comparison that misunderstands the difference between the words “homicide” and “murder.” While all murders are homicides, not all homicides are murders. Murders are a subpart of the word homicides.
“In any event, the Politifact analysis involved another person, not any of us, was about “murders,” not “homicides,” and disagreed with nothing that I said.
“CNN, strike Three! You’re OUT!
“Mr. Speaker, is CNN “the most trusted name in news” as it claims? No!
“Not when its reporters, fact checkers, and newscasters are so blinded by vitriol, prejudice, bias, and hatred for President Trump that they cannot think or see straight.
“Not so long as CNN is nothing more than an apparatchik for radical, open border, Socialist Democrats; not the truth, and not the American people.
“Mr. Speaker, CNN has earned its Fake News crown and, based on last week, is not at risk of losing its crown anytime soon.
“Mr. Speaker, I yield back.”
Slow clap for Mo Brooks. More truth in one sitting than CNN reports in a year.

New York Times Editor: We’re Switching From Russia Collusion To ‘Trump Is Racist’
The New York Times and others have repeatedly tried to take down President Trump with libelous statements on the Russian collusion front and have failed spectacularly every single time. Now, New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet has accidentally admitted that for two years his far-left newspaper was “built” around spreading a hoax. Oops. But it’s never too late to shift propaganda in this political war.
He was secretly recorded saying just that and it got out. Baquet also admitted the Times’ staff is loaded with left-wingers “who cheer us when we take on Donald Trump, but they jeer at us when we take on Joe Biden.” Do tell. I’m shocked I tell you. Simply shocked.
What is actually shocking is this recording comes by way of the leftist rag, Slate. They got their mitts on the recording of a company-wide meeting Baquet held with his staffers and it is an illuminating look at how leftist media utilizes and manipulates propaganda for political effect. Why Slate would let that out is puzzling, to say the least.
Baquet has now admitted that for two long years his leftist newspaper was “built” around the Russia Collusion Hoax: “It got trickier after [inaudible] … went from being a story about whether the Trump campaign had colluded with Russia and obstruction of justice to being a more head-on story about the president’s character. We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well.”
Truly well? Do you mean by lying and falsifying facts? They did that very well. There was not a shred of evidence that Trump colluded with Russia yet the NYT reported on it as fact for two years and in actuality, made stuff up to fit that narrative.
So the NY Times (D-NY) is back to hosting political strategy sessions on how to destroy @realDonaldTrump. Collusion failed. Obstruction came up short. Now they’ve returned to the favorite cry of every liberal who’s losing an argument: RACISM! A sad commentary on “news” in America https://t.co/en4Y8nQCOa

But the New York Times has seen the light, so to speak. The Russia collusion hoax hasn’t worked so now they are switching tactics… Trump is now a racist and everything will revolve around that lie: “Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story. I’d love your help with that. As Audra Burch said when I talked to her this weekend, this one is a story about what it means to be an American in 2019. It is a story that requires deep investigation into people who peddle hatred[.]”
The truth is that if Trump were actually a racist it would have come out decades ago. This is a last-ditch effort to besmirch a sitting president so a communist can take his place in the next election. It’s subversion and in my book… a form of treason.
You can still taste the salty leftist tears from being disappointed that Mueller did not take down Trump: “The day Bob Mueller walked off that witness stand, two things happened. Our readers who want Donald Trump to go away suddenly thought, “Holy shit, Bob Mueller is not going to do it.” And Donald Trump got a little emboldened politically, I think. Because, you know, for obvious reasons. And I think that the story changed. A lot of the stuff we’re talking about started to emerge like six or seven weeks ago. We’re a little tiny bit flat-footed. I mean, that’s what happens when a story looks a certain way for two years. Right?”
So, while the NYT, WaPo, and other lefty rags spewed lies and propaganda, outlets such as Breitbart, The Daily Wire, and The Daily Caller among others did real reporting and told the truth. For their efforts, a number of them have been banned on social media.
“Baquet pretty much spends the rest of the 90 minutes meeting fielding questions from individuals who are supposed to be professionals but who only want to know how they can call Trump and his supporters racists even more often.
“You see, according to the Times’ staff, everything is racist because everything really is racist.
“You probably think that whole “everything is racist” thing is me being sarcastic. Here’s a direct quote from a staffer [emphasis added]:
“Hello, I have another question about racism. I’m wondering to what extent you think that the fact of racism and white supremacy being sort of the foundation of this country should play into our reporting. Just because it feels to me like it should be a starting point, you know? Like these conversations about what is racist, what isn’t racist. I just feel like racism is in everything. It should be considered in our science reporting, in our culture reporting, in our national reporting. And so, to me, it’s less about the individual instances of racism, and sort of how we’re thinking about racism and white supremacy as the foundation of all of the systems in the country.
“Good grief. What a dispiriting and not-at-all surprising look at the ignorant whack jobs in charge of our media — and in the case of the New York Times, not just the media, but what is considered the elite of the media elite. What are they obsessed with? What do these conspiracy-loons see everywhere in 2019 America…?
“Here we sit in the most tolerant, diverse country in the world just a few years after having twice elected a black president with the middle name “Hussein,” and the people in charge of the media are breaking down into pools of self-pity because they want to scream racist at us even more than they already have.
“And again, let’s not forget that the only way they can try to pretend America is racist is by way of massive hoaxes: the Very Fine People Hoax, the Covington Hoax, the George Zimmerman Is White Hoax, the Hands Up Don’t Shoot Hoax, the Jussie Smollett Hoax, and the countless hoax hate crimes they spread over and over and over again without scrutiny.”
Good grief is an understatement. The NYT does not cover real news anymore like the rising tide of anti-Semitism in this country. They are too busy protecting terrorists and radicals, while smearing the president and conservatives, to do their actual jobs.
The New York Times openly admits that anti-Jewish hate crimes don’t interest the Times because white supremacists are not behind them: “If anti-Semitism bypasses consideration as a serious problem in New York, it is to some extent because it refuses to conform to an easy narrative with a single ideological enemy. During the past 22 months, not one person caught or identified as the aggressor in an anti-Semitic hate crime has been associated with a far right-wing group, Mark Molinari, commanding officer of the police department’s Hate Crimes Task Force, told me.”
But young white males are domestic terrorists according to these people. Geez. Not communist Antifa or Black Lives Matter or the Nation of Islam or the Black Panthers… white boys are the ticket, y’all.
Since the media is out of Russian ammo and they detest Trump, they have to have another way of smearing him and throwing the race card is their final desperate move in this political dance. Nothing else has stuck to Teflon-Don. Look for them to cry ‘racism’ non-stop for the next two years in their latest contrived hoax against the president. But you won’t hear them cover actual racism because it does not fit their political narrative. It has to be Trump, Trump, Trump! or it’s not news.
The NYT is a peddler of hate. No wonder they had to stop publishing political cartoons because the editorial staff can’t recognize blatant anti-Semitism. These aren’t journalists anymore… they are Brown Shirts. They feel they’ll get away with calling Trump a racist. After all, they got away with the Russian crap for two years.
Wow! The Deputy Editor of the Failing New York Times was just demoted. Should have been Fired! Totally biased and inaccurate reporting. The paper is a Fraud, Zero Credibility. Fake News takes another hit, but this time a big one!
