  1. All these years CNN saying they were non partisan & down the middle ALL ruined by TRUMP
    LOVE IT! lol

      • CNN wishes to undo a presidential election it thinks was decided by cretins.

        The Manadrin-Class at CNN and elsewhere, has been apoplectic in its discovery of such a loss of control.

        This class wishes to rule over our national life and to mute all dissent.

  2. Zucker would have preferred to go for racism or rape, but “bullying” will have to do.

  3. Jim Acosta determined to be the CNN’s Fake News King –

    CNN’s Jim Acosta gets fact about intelligence community’s Russia assessment wrong, calls it ‘fake news’

    CNN’s Acosta slammed for saying Trump held ‘fake news conference’

  4. CNN’s Zucker once again is going to try to play the victim card. Luckily nobody is buying it, except his lacky Stelter.

  5. If true that Kazynski’s (sp?) home address was made public, that is wrong just as CNN’s ridiculous behavior towards the Gif creator was wrong. It’s only been a couple of weeks since Rep Scalise was shot. Looks like all calls for more civility in political rhetoric have been completely forgotten.

    • I agree entirely with this being wrong.

      I thought it was appropriate tit-for-tat when that was done to the staffers at that newspaper which published all the names and addresses of people who were on local gun registeries, but I don’t see why it was necessary here.

  6. On a different topic (but speaking of heated rhetoric), anyone know what the Twitter back and forth between Greg Gutfeld and Cheri Jacobus is about? Both seem pretty fired up!

  7. Its a weird week when you turn on MSNBC and a Elected Democrat is on talking about how they must defend states rights and the host isn’t having a stroke……….then you remember Trumps president and suddenly states rights matter again.

  8. I might agree with Jim Acosta on letting “friendly” reporters ask questions if I could forget the entire Obama years and the fact that a Obama appointee wasn’t hosting a news program on CNN right now.

  9. So CNN instead of doing some news , decided to waste some resources to find a man who made a gif of them the president happened to use, he also did some other things on reddit too, but they went through all that , instead of doing some news stories of matter instead of president tweets gif. They also did more coverage of President tweets about MSNBC hosts than MSNBC did. CNN under Zucker has been take one thing and run it into the ground (it started with the plane)

  10. Today’s most popular links:
    5 get the Zuck out
    4 it wasn’t fake
    3 ‘turned heel’
    2 menace to the free press
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 Rothstein: CNN ‘reeling’ after several staffers’ personal info leaked.

  11. Disgraced Racist Newshound™ whines this:

    I wonder why a Fox News Channel news show is using a conservative pundit as a substitute anchor?

    misses that on CNN @ same time a OBAMA appointee was a filling as the news anchor

  12. Mr. Concha on Tucker did a prosecutor’s summation of CNN’s messups that Clarence Darrow couldn’t save them from a guilty verdict.
