CNN complains about lack of diversity on Coronavirus team

Only CNN could find outrage in the team looking to combat the Coronavirus. Apparently diversity is more important than ability in a crisis.

CNN political writer Brandon Tensley quipped,

Who are these experts?…They’re largely the same sorts of white men (and a couple women on the sidelines) who’ve dominated the Trump administration from the very beginning...[comparing it to Obama’s handling of the Ebola virus in 2014] Neither was it so abysmal in terms of gender diversity. (Of course, to contextualize, Obama’s administration, on the whole, was far more diverse than Trump’s.).”

Commentator Dave Rubin retorted,

Sir, I’ve discovered the cure to the Coronovirius! We can create an intitiode and spread it worldwide within 12 hours.”

“Bob, we’ve told you repeatedly if you aren’t a non-binary latinx disabled lesbian you’re not allowed to talk.

Welcome to 2020. Where finding a cure ASAP takes a backseat to diversity. Liberal logic.

One imagines that the Chinese authorities have a similar lack of diversity on their team to combat the Coronavirus.

Trump Derangement Syndrome in Space

Yes, it didn’t take long for the liberal media to find yet another talking point to mock Trump for supposedly ripping off Star Trek’s ‘Starfleet Command’ logo. CNN’s Jim Acosta pushed the narrative in a tweet. The BBC and other mainstream media outlets jumped on the band wagon to have a potshot at Trump. This is truly stuff that kindergarten kids do in a playground.

Unfortunately for Acosta, the Air Force Space Command has had the following insignia since it’s inception in 1982. As you can see the delta and globe shapes comes from that.

The delta symbol, the central design element in the seal, was first used as early as 1942 by the U.S. Army Air Force and was used in early Air Force space organization emblems dating back to 1961. Perhaps Star Trek channeled the US defence forces, not the other way around.

The orbit design in the new logo is also identical to NASA. The star clusters are also similar.

We only need look at the other US military branches in the US to see the outer circumference is consistent. Here is the Department of the Air Force replete with Roman numerals.

It is amazing that this is even news. However the mainstream media so desperate to paint Trump as stupid, can’t help itself by resorting to such low resolution barbs. As is so often the case, a little bit of effort reveals the lack of rigour within media outlets to get to the truth.

So much for high-brow journalism. Everything is driven by clickbait and ‘trending’ stories. They can’t let high quality investigative journalism drive audiences. Then act surprised when ratings keep falling.

Which begs the question, who is stupid? The mainstream media or Trump?

Trump was the people’s handgrenade. They never expected the Dems to pull the pin

Two interesting videos which expose the despicable nature of this impeachment trial.

One video is the mainstream media saying Ambassador Sondland tied Trump to a quid pro quo. As he clearly states he only “presumed” and that absolutely nobody told him. Hearsay is being counted as good as real evidence. Schiff has been so crooked during this trial claiming he didn’t know the whistleblower’s identity but shutting down Lt Col Vandiman to prevent him from saying his name.

The second is the way the Dems have shifted the narrative from quid pro quo to bribery. In the 3,500 pages of sworn testimony the word is mentioned once and not referring to Trump but toward allegations about Joe Biden. Amusing that a mainstream media poll discovered that “bribery” was the biggest catch word that would justify an impeachment so Trump Derangement Syndrome has got the better of the Democrats and the impeachment is now shifted towards bribery allegations.

Regardless of the evidence, Democrats will vote for impeachment. The Senate will reject it and this will be a show trial with no benefit to anyone other than to expose the lengths the Dems will go to pull down a sitting president. A waste of time and money which if anything has exposed how much corruption was in the prior administration to have a former Ambassador to Ukraine testify she had been pre-prepped by the State Department to know how to handle questions on Hunter Biden’s involvement at Burisma, clearly understanding the massive conflict of interest. Yet no other companies in the Ukraine required such preparation. Hmmmm.

Say, has anyone heard any stories on Joe Biden lately? Mysteriously absent.

This is not lost on the American people, as much as they weren’t fooled by Bill Clinton’s chance meeting on an airport tarmac with then AG Loretta Lynch, a few days before her testimony answering questions about his wife. Grandkids and golf is all they spoke about apparently.

Yeah, right.

TDS is a mental health issue. The Democrats have spent his entire presidency trying to pin anything on him they can – Russia, Ukraine, Stormy Daniels etc etc. As vulgar and unorthodox as his methods may be, the results are way better than anyone predicted. Most Americans who voted for him weren’t seeking his advice on morals and behaviour. He was there so the left behind could lob a handgrenade into decades of political incompetence, which apparently is all his fault, not career politicians.

The irony is that the Democrats have pulled the pin on themselves and done no favour a for re-election in 2020. If he wins they know they’re the ones he is coming after. That petrifies them.

Trump is living rent free inside CNN’s head

If CNN needed any further evidence of why its ratings continue to be so disastrous, look no further.

While Trump has so many well known areas for improvement, does CNN honestly believe that anyone without Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) will give such reporting any marks? Worth a segment? Perhaps CNN should chart it’s fake news in a similar way? Surely outstrip Trump’s misspellings. Or should we laugh at the climate alarmist network’s predictions on rising sea levels when they’ve recently moved to new premises at Hudson Yards, by the Hudson River in NY.

CNN isn’t alone. WaPo, the fabled “Democracy Dies in Darkness” newspaper showed its own incredible pettiness when it fact checked Trump’s claim that there were 1,000 burgers stacked a mile high. “FACT CHECK: at 2 inches each one thousand burgers wouldn’t reach 1 mile high.

Theatre of the absurd.

Surprised?

Who’d a thunk? The irony is that Trump should be leading to higher ratings but it is having the opposite effect.

Completely despicable

Another reason to like Rep Tulsi Gabbard, although she is nowhere in the polls despite her straight talking. If there was a Democratic Party candidate that even marginal Republicans could lean toward she is it.

CNN moderator Anderson Cooper asked what Gabbard thought of Trump’s withdrawal from Syria. The answer he got was a little more pointed than he expected.

Gabbard said,

Well, first of all, we’ve got to understand the reality of the situation there, which is that the slaughter of the Kurds being done by Turkey is yet another negative consequence of the regime change war that we’ve been waging in Syria…

…Donald Trump has the blood of the Kurds on his hand, but so do many of the politicians in our country from both parties who have supported this ongoing regime change war in Syria that started in 2011 — along with many in the mainstream media who have been championing and cheerleading this regime change war…”

…now she gets really serious…

“…The New York Times and CNN have also smeared veterans like myself for calling for an end to this regime change war…Just two days ago, The New York Times put out an article saying that I’m a Russian asset and an Assad apologist, and all these different smears. This morning, a CNN commentator said on national television that I’m an asset of Russia. Completely despicable.”

#CancelWhitePeople Sarah Jeong dumped by NYT

What irony that The NY Times finally came to the conclusion what the majority knew about potty mouthed Sarah Jeong, albeit 12 months too late. The picture above shows a selection of tweets before she was hired by NYT. Despite that, NYT defended her hire.

CM wrote back in August 2018,

“Was Jeong not aware that 8 of the 12 board of editors are currently white? Not that the board’s racial identity should have any bearing on disgraceful bigotry displayed by her.

The only point at stake here is whether The NY Times will defend and maintain consistent standards it would certainly hold if a white editor raged on about people of other colour. This isn’t a rally or #boycott (please no more boycotts) to get Jeong sacked. On the contrary. In free market thinking the question is whether The NY Times exercises rational judgement and sees that from a commercial perspective defending the indefensible might not be good for growing the business or encouraging a shrinking pool of paying advertisers to rent more space?

After the election of Trump, the newspaper changed its slogan to “The truth is more important now than ever.” For someone to espouse such bitter hatred so candidly in social media forums which have a half life of infinity, her truths are for all to see. The truth in The NY Times’ slogan is also on display.

How could The NY Times possibly hope to uphold the highest levels of ethics and moral high ground by defending her? In her press blurb the paper is effusive with praise citing, “Sarah has guided readers through the digital world with verve and erudition, staying ahead of every turn on the vast beat that is the internet.“ It is also quite telling that Twitter didn’t think she broke the very standards that would see conservative voices banned for far less offensive tweets.

CM wonders what the Harvard Law School has to say about its deeply talented alumni who served as Editor of the Journal of Law and Gender? Perhaps she just missed the ethics classes because she was too busy battling to make sure the correct pronouns were used in the articles on identity politics.”

Now the NYT has terminated her contract. Undoubtedly her contribution was as empty as her Twitter bile. She will now be a contributor, a rather large downgrade from being on the editorial board. She tweeted about the NYT paying attention to subscriber numbers, something the paper might have considered at the start.

Maybe her impact was one which didn’t ring the turnstiles at NYT. It is likely the same reason why The Guardian begs for charity instead of coming to terms with the fact that the content maybe the problem.

Note NYT is offering Aussies an 80% off subscription deal for a year.
