  1. Deadpool 2Q2Q

    CNN best bet to surviving, is to show re-runs of the 3 stooges 24/7.

    Fake since day 1.

    No weapons of mass destruction, that was fake Blitzer.
    But 1/2 million dead Iraqis is not fake.

  2. Brian Stelter what a stooge, I guess its living proof even a total moron can get a job, I mean if this pathetic idiot is still working "Everybody's safe".

  3. Yup, just say what you want to say about me, just spell my name properly" ….. Trump knows there's no such thing as bad publicity when you're a star doing the right thing. Most entertainers know this. I know it and I'm not an entertainer. Piensalo.

  4. Obama weaponized the Justice Dept in an effort to insure that one of his fellow crooks followed him into power. Obama's admin was so corrupt and interested solely in self-enrichment – they were willing to destroy the fabric of our Govt to achieve their treasonous ends.

  5. If it had been anyone else but Trump – the treasonous excrement who gamed the FISA Court in their attempt to remove a duly elected President might have been successful. Trump may be the only person on the planet who could have weathered the criminal & treasonous machinations of these deluded anti-American monsters.

  6. Another piece of CNN’s recent reporting history

    Is CNN the most trusted name in news? Let's look at a recent example and you can come to your own conclusion about this. You had a big story that just broke the last couple of weeks that Michael Cohen, President Trump's former lawyer who has "flipped" against him in court, had information that proved or could perhaps sway a jury that President Trump knew about that infamous Trump Tower meeting before it happened.

    The media jumped all over this.

    CNN, citing "multiple sources," said that this was, in fact, the case. Among the bylines on that piece, Carl Bernstein of "Woodward and Bernstein" fame.

    So now you think to yourself, this has all the makings of a major scoop, right?

    But then there's a little problem: Cohen had already testified under oath to Congress that that was not the case. So his lawyer, Lanny Davis, knew that he was going to have to walk it back.

    CNN's scoop says that Cohen would say that Trump knew in advance, then we find out from Cohen's lawyer that's not the case. Lanny Davis comes forward and says there is no such information because that's not true and that he should have spoken about things a little bit differently. On top of that, you have BuzzFeed coming out with a story that says that the source for that initial Michael Cohen story, that big bombshell about how we were going to find out the truth about that Trump Tower meeting and what Trump knew and when he knew it – the source was Lanny Davis.

    Now, people are turning to CNN and saying, that was the big story you ran with, Lanny Davis says it's not only inaccurate, now we're being told that Lanny Davis was the source for the inaccurate story, don't you have to offer up some sort of retraction? Oh no. CNN claims that they have multiple sources and that they stand by their reporting entirely and that we don't know who their sources are so they're just not going to change anything.

    Folks, come on. Let's all be serious, let's be adults about this. There's no way when you look at this timeline that Lanny Davis wasn't somehow involved at least in this initial breaking news story that got a ton of traction at CNN. Nor is this the first time. There have been multiple stories at CNN that has had to correct in part or retract in whole. All of them are anti-Trump. When you're making the same mistake in the same direction each and every time, it feels much less like this is just an error of doing tough, gumshoe journalism and much more like perhaps there is an ideology at work.

    If CNN wants to be the core of the anti-Trump resistance as journalists, that's fine, it's their right. But I just wish they would be more honest about that. And I think that the public's understanding of where CNN stands on these issues is driving a lot of their reluctance to come clean about the fact that they're running with anti-Trump sources that they know to be untrustworthy or should know to be less than credible. And then when they get caught with their hand in the cookie jar? They don't want to correct it, they don't want to change it because it served the purpose at the time which was being anti-Trump.

    So is CNN the most trusted name in news? I'll let you answer that question.

  7. Do you all ever get sick of looking like fools? Nobody is watching you cnn. This is why… i really think you are all trying to help him trump. I am thankful for that.

  8. It seems to me what has been happening is the dems just keep throwing crap against the wall, then republicans have to clean it up every time. With the Barr criminal investigation now finally the dynamics change.

  9. Trump supporters are traitors and should be locked up. They would have kissed Hitler's boots. They are human scum gaslighting everyone.

  14. It's the ultimate irony that one of the most important position in the world isn't open to the kind of performance and standard of conduct scrutiny that you'd fine in even the most ordinary of companies. You can be one of the world's biggest idiot and you get to serve your term. Sad.

  15. Uh oh swamp, one … two.. durhams coming for you..your fabricated BS never ends then just gets exposed. Hey remember how Ford was a flop, still salty libtards

  16. well the media are idiots for allowing DOTARD TO MANIPULATE THE MEDIA AND THE INBRED. MEDIA JUST THE SAME AS THE INBRED SUPPORTERS.

  17. God this is so wrong. Orangeman is not 'lawless.' If he was a lawless monster every republican would have seen it and condemn him. He's being monitored 24/7 and even spied on ffs. Also, impeachment is a huge deal! normalization? wtf is that!? You mean it's fine to make the 'impeachment constitutional process' into a fcking tug-of-war game? "we dont like you, so we will impeach you." or "you go against us [left/right wing] or our ppl, we will impeach you."
    Impeachment is a constitutional process for a serious crime or crimes that ridicule our constitution, our nation. Trump's "crime" is using the potus office to investigate a [corrupted? left-wing] politician. Crime =/= investigation. Investigation =/= ridiculing.

  18. This is such a simple but important observation. Trump is incompetent, that should be enough. He is also a criminal nutjob, but the fact that he is so obviously not up to the job then sacking him should be a really simple process.

  19. It seriously took 3 years for CNN and the media to figure this out? Simply amazing that people in 2019 don't understand how Internet trolling has worked for 20+ years. Tonedeaf, slow, and braindead. Your pure ignorance of current culture got Trump elected. Trump himself has been using negative coverage to his advantage for FORTY years, even. Amazing that this is considered newsworthy. And yet, every single story remains anti-Trump for the braindead circle jerk of your viewership. Orange Man Bad Herp Derp!

  20. Pointing your finger at the federalist ???? CNN has been talking about Trump destroying our democracy every day for 3 years.

  21. Two whiney unconstitutional bitches!! Heres an idea, beat him in 2020 with a good plan on how the country should be run. High taxes and government control isn't a good plan !!!

  22. The pig Adam Schiff think Bolton the Warmonger is his safer.
    If i must be honest i think Bolton is the whistleblower, cause just after he get fired.
    This whole Ukraine shit begins to roll.

  23. THESE WHITETRASHES ON CNN ACUSE AN HATE WHITE FOR EVERYTHING.
    DO THESE WHITETRASHES THINK THAT THEY ARE PEOPLES OF COLOR.
    BTW WE THE PEOPLE OF COLOR DONT BUY YOUR CRAP, WHITETRASH.

  24. The Dems and the media want to impreach Trump based on their own fantasies conjured up around the Ukraine call, not because of the Ukraine call itself because the transcript has nothing impeachable in it.

  25. THIS NON JOURNALIST IS ONE OF MANY DOING MORE TO RE ELECT TRUMP WITH THEIR STUPIDITY THAN ANYONE ELSE. IMPEACH IMPEACH IMPEACH. WHAT A FUCKING 3 YEAR LONG JOKE. SOON BARR AND DURHAM WILL EXPOSE THE REAL TRADERS AND A TRUMP LANDSLIDE WILL FOLLOW.

  26. Anybody that listen 2 these two dweebs really needs to be culled from the Citizenry.I truly hope they have retraining center set up.

  27. Look how mad these retards are that they've been trying to slander Trump for four years and still can't shake his base hahahahahhahahaha

  28. No good news about Trump ever and I don't even like Trump but CNN is #propaganda as well as MSNBC and FOX Such bias

  29. Common capacity‐limited neural mechanisms of selective attention and spatial working memory encoding

    One characteristic feature of visual working memory (WM) is its limited capacity, and selective attention has been implicated as limiting factor. A possible reason why attention constrains the number of items that can be encoded into WM is that the two processes share limited neural resources. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies have indeed demonstrated commonalities between the neural substrates of WM and attention.

  38. Impeachment originally was a great ideal by the founders. What they didnt imagine was the weaponizing of it by both parties or the strictly loyalty to party over country. Though they did warn us of the dangers of a two party system and what do you know they where right.

  39. Well, they aren't impeaching him because it's not going to happen in the senate.

    If he controlled media coverage you guys would be out of business.
