ESPN pulls Asian-American announcer from Virginia football game because he has a Confederate general’s name
In the wake of the events in Charlottesville, Va., ESPN decided to pull one of its announcers from calling a University of Virginia football game — because his name is Robert Lee.
Lee, an Asian-American sportscaster who started with the network in 2016, was moved to a different game “simply because of the coincidence of his name,” ESPN said, referencing the Confederate general Robert E. Lee.
No. I am not kidding. Watch.
Yes, precisely. ESPN believes its audience is so inherently daft that it cannot possibly begin to readily differentiate between a young Asian sports commentator and a dead, old Confederate Army Caucasoid general with a beard and long hair.
If you think that’s wondrous — but wait. There’s more.
The American Media Maggots actually believed that on Tucker Carlson’s Monday show he was gravely serious when he said that President Trump looking at the sun during the solar eclipse was “perhaps the most impressive thing any president has ever done.” YGBFKM.
No. I am as deadly serious as the man in this video.
It’s a joke but it’s not a joke. No, it’s much more serious than that. Wait, it’s perhaps the most seriously insightful thing in months.
Nathan McDermott of CNN bit. Big time.
The UK’s Claire Phipps at the Guardian also chomped.
Binkowski is even more serious. This is her specific Tweet. Grok that.
At least the bald dude had a semblance of a clue, but not much. Wait until you see and hear the reactions of the American Media Maggots who were truly and nakedly beyond stupid. Who best to point out said stupidity but Tucker Carlson himself and Greg Gutfeld.
Just as the humorless Leftists have time and again proven themselves bereft of facts, much less compassion, they continue to subvert America hand-in-bloody-hand with the American Media Maggots, Antifa, anarchists and the willing complicity of Demorats.
I’ve said before and continue to say: “you can’t write this shite.”
Still, the Left-embracing American Media Maggots fundamentally cannot believe anyone would deign to possess the temerity to label them Fake News.
As they simultaneously bleed cash, readers, advertising and — Leftist journalistas themselves. I wonder why the AMM doesn’t dare to speak about the heinous, slashing cuts in newsrooms all across the fruited plain? And the fact that their ponderous corporations pay for shite?
And these days: frightened news. Cowardly news. Bleeding dollars, laying off staffers, hemorrhaging readers. They are losing power, control and money. They are in Desperation Mode and, as with anyone who is desperate, they are not thinking straight. But could they ever?
Just as we learned despicable things about Planned Parenthood, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas is uncovering despicable things about, finally, the American Media Maggots in the guise of CNN.
You need to see these videos and hear these videos because, naturally, CNN will not even address them on-air. Likewise other media groups will eschew them. But James O’Keefe has done nothing but prove over and again in how much disdain and contempt CNN holds you, the viewer and news consumer.
Jeff Zucker and CNN believe you to be — and in many cases you are, save the bulk of my readers — completely ignorant dupes. They expect you to buy their bullshit because of the long and careful crafting of their brand which, now, is beginning to unwind and literally fall apart despite their so-called “best efforts.”
Their first video features a CNN Supervising Producer named John Bonifield who readily admits that the Russia theme regarding President Trump is, first, unmitigated bullshit and, second, a theme pushed by CNN CEO Jeff Zucker over and above most everything else.
Then, this second video from Project Veritas.
The third American Pravda, CNN video.
And the fourth American Pravda CNN video.
Why are these videos named “Pravda” you ask? After the Russian newspaper whose sole job during the Cold War was to act as nothing more than an arm and organ for the Soviet government and Communist party. Nothing more. It literally trotted out the Party Line. Just as CNN does for the Demorats and Leftists.
Remember, if you will, that it was CNN who told us it was illegal for us proles, us commoners, us groundlings, us serfs, us rabble to actually look at Wikileaks when, on the other hand, it remarkably was not so for CNN.
Right. Because only they have the lock on real news. Only they can determine what is appropriate for us to see and hear. Only they possess the wisdom and authority to truly vet what can be considered as actual news for the masses, thoroughly prepped, sifted, edited and as it were, for consumption by CNN’s lessers — namely, us.
Let’s watch and listen — from CNN’s own video footage — how the network somehow managed to “lose” or cut off reporters when the information got too close to actual facts or negative impressions involving Hillary Clinton.
Having been exposed as fake news by a president who is a bare-knuckled brawler, and having taken some very serious hits himself from CNN and all makes and models of other news outlets since his first hour in office, the video below was Tweeted by Trump this past Sunday, July 2nd.
Creative, yes, but horribly offensive? Worse than bear scat? Not hardly. In fact, it was creative and amusing. Did I larf out loud? No, but I rarely do that these days.
However, instead of taking a large cup of shut-the-fuck-up, CNN did the one thing they really ought not to have done. It made a huge deal of the video and said, in essence, that CNN and reporter’s lives would be lost and the earth would stop rotating on its axis due to this video, not unlike the one which clearly predicated the Benghazi attack in 2012. Howard Kurtz explains by way of Bret Baier.
Even CNBC wrote this about the video and CNN’s reaction.
CNN faces backlash over handling of doctored Trump video
The network said late Tuesday it had identified the Reddit user who originally posted an old WWE video of Trump “roughing up” pro wrestling maven Vince McMahon
CNN said online that it had decided not to publish the user’s name because he is a private citizen who apologized
CNN says safety concerns led to its decision not to reveal the identity of the man behind a doctored anti-CNN video. Yet the way the decision was explained and deep distrust of the network among President Donald Trump’s supporters provoked a backlash Wednesday.
The network said late Tuesday it had identified the Reddit user who originally posted an old WWE video of Trump “roughing up” pro wrestling maven Vince McMahon, superimposing the CNN logo over McMahon’s face. Trump tweeted a link to the video, with some modifications, and it has become the president’s most-shared social media post yet, according to Twitter.
Blackmail indeed by a corporation worth billions of dollars and having a massive cadre of attorneys on tap against one citizen whose privacy was violated so that CNN could save a modicum of face. I ask one thing: look at 18 USC 241 below. Then ask yourself if the section could be applied to CNN.
18 U.S. Code § 241 – Conspiracy against rights
If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same.
Is CNN also exposed for prosecution under a New York law, PEN § 135.60, regarding “coercion in the second degree”?
One of my favorite hosts, Tucker Carlson, weighs in on the CNN blackmail issue.
Even the Associated Press can sack up and admit it made mistakes. From Breitbart.com:
Associated Press Admits It Published Fake News About President Trump and Russian Ties
by Penny Starr
The Associated Press issued a “clarification” on Friday regarding articles it published on multiple days, from April through the end of June. Those articles claimed 17 U.S. intelligence agencies agreed that Russia not only tried to influence the 2016 presidential election but did so to benefit Donald Trump over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
The clarification read:
WASHINGTON (AP) — In stories published April 6, June 2, June 26 and June 29, The Associated Press reported that all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies have agreed that Russia tried to influence the 2016 election to benefit Donald Trump. That assessment was based on information collected by three agencies – the FBI, CIA and National Security Agency – and published by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which represents all U.S. intelligence agencies. Not all 17 intelligence agencies were involved in reaching the assessment.
Do you see? Do you understand? This information became accepted as patently true, beginning and continuing the meme recognized today by Leftists and certainly many on the right, to include Michael Medved, that all 17 alphabet agencies signed off on the Russian idea. When in fact they had not.
An article the Associated Press (AP) published on June 22 not only gave false information about the number of intelligence agencies cited in it but criticized Trump for questioning the reporting. Trump also pointed out that if any Russian hacking into the election took place, it took place when former President Barack Obama was in office.
But what is CNN instead doing? It is doubling down on “we’ve done nothing wrong.”

CNN Losing to FX, Nick-At-Nite, TLC as Scandals, Controversies Take Toll
by Adam Shaw
CNN, rocked by a fake news scandal and accusations of blackmail, is taking a significant hit in its primetime ratings, losing not only to Fox News and MSNBC, but also to FX, TLC, The Discovery Channel — and even children’s TV network Nick-at-Nite.
It appears the network is suffering in the ratings as a result. As first reported by The Federalist, cable ratings for June 26 — July 2 show that while Fox and MSNBC occupy the first and second slots for ratings 8 p.m. – 11 p.m., CNN is in 13th place.
This means that the “most trusted name in news is being beaten by Fox News, MSNBC, HGTV, USA Network, TBS Network, the History Channel, ESPN, the Discovery Channel, FX, TLC, Nick-at-Nite, and Investigation Discovery.
CNN is nothing like an impartial, objective network. They are everything but. They have done their level best to get balcony seats in the theater of their own demise. It wasn’t easy. It was long, hard, difficult work. But they’ve finally broken through to the point where more and more people are truly beginning to realize that CNN is in fact fake news.
Sights are now being set on other networks and media organs. Trust me on this.
Oh hell, wait. I can’t publish this post without including a final CNN parody.
Now that one made me larf out loud. Ahem. I continue.
Yes, CNN allowed three reporters to “resign” over fake news, the result of a retracted Russia story. But they have obviously not seeing the light. I don’t believe they can.
Let’s be honest. CNN is acting just like Hillary Rodham Clinton for the exact same reasons. They both can’t admit that November 9th ushered in a new president. Neither of them can admit they may be even the slightest percentile responsible for their current plights. They are the victims. It’s always someone else’s fault. Never theirs.
They complete lack the ability to conduct introspection. To possess insight. To focus their own incredibly-critical and judgmental eyes inwards.
There is a new paradigm shift coming for the American Media Maggots.
Oh wait; I don’t mean for the better.
Okay, okay, I couldn’t pass this one up either. Again I actually had to larf out loud.
Certainly CNN expected a Syrian interviewed on live TV would yield a clear and quick condemnation of President Trump’s recent actions in Syria against Bashir Al-Assad’s chemical attack on his own civilians.
The American Media Maggots — like defense attorneys who, faced with the facts against them shift into personal ad hominem attack mode — have decided the only choice remaining to them is to double down with stunning celerity on cheating, scapegoating, minimizing, hiding, obfuscation, ignorance and, now, labeling. Time to re-brand and, moreover, stigmatize news sources other than their own.
Let’s start with some refreshing truth and, unfortunately, regress from there to the lies, ploys and Alinsky-like deception crafted to push the Leftists’ narrative of control.
Do you hear ANY of these examples trotted out by the American Media Maggots in their campaign of control? Of course not. They cannot abide truth. The last thing the “fake news” bleats are about is truth. Cognitive dissonance of the Left.
Welcome to the new normal. Aided and abetted by the Standard Leftist List.
The AMM are losing control. They don’t care for it one bit. The election, of course, told them so. The faces of the American Media Maggots were slammed into the hard and textured concrete sidewalk of reality, receiving completely unanticipated bloody injuries and broken facial bones.
The facts don’t lie. Print ads diminished by 15% during this third quarter at the largest newspaper publisher in the United States, Gannett — producer of USA Today and over 100 other brands. Revenues were down 17% at McClatchy (where I used to work in the 70s, having met Eleanor McClatchy herself), 19% at the New York Times and a massive 21% at the Wall Street Journal. Newspapers tried to make up revenue in the digital domain but that was no panacea because — you didn’t see this coming? — Millennials don’t like to pay for online entertainment (such as music and videos) and as far as they’re concerned, newspapers were entertainment. Who would pay for newspaper content when they could get everything they wanted from John Stewart or Steven Colbert?
I’d suggest that another of the reasons the American Media Maggots and social media happen to find themselves in this critical situation is due to their both manufacturing fake news and deleting real news.
Paul Watson explains.
The same media that gave Hillary 98% chance of winning & hoax rape stories is lecturing us about “fake news”
The American Media Maggots and social media are doubling down with censorship and the denigrating of non-major news sources. If it’s not ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, the New York Times, LA Times, etc. — then it’s not real news they say.
Witness, most recently, the major social platforms’ tsunami-like predilection towards censorship regarding “extremist content.” Who determines “extremist content” you ask? Well, if you have to ask the question you already grasp the answer. When you declare “fake news” you also inherently declare censorship and the elimination of free speech.
The AMM believe they have few options left because, even with the all-out 24/7 assault against Donald Trump, “their” candidate didn’t win. Part of the loss includes the realization that people were not paying sufficient attention, in their minds, to the so-called “mainstream media.” In other words, that the MSM was the only game in town.
Mark Zuckerberg outlines Facebook’s ideas to battle fake news
by Abby Ohlheiser
A week after trying to reassure the public that it was “extremely unlikely hoaxes changed the outcome of this election,” Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg outlined several ways the company might try to stop the spread of fake news on the platform in the future.
“We’ve been working on this problem for a long time and we take this responsibility seriously. We’ve made significant progress, but there is more work to be done,” Zuckerberg wrote in a Friday night post on his own Facebook page. He then named seven approaches the company was considering to address the issue, including warning labels on false stories, easier user reporting methods and the integration of third-party verification.
Just who are considered purveyors of “fake news”? That’s correct; mostly right-leaning or conservative sites, listed as Drudge or Breitbart.
But let’s state the obvious about the Drudge Report. It is nothing more than an aggregator of news. Drudge simply recaps various stories, news-sites. His sources are frequently Leftist US media, to include the NY Times, LA Times, and all the Usual Suspects. How in the hell is the Drudge Report “fake news”? That makes no sense whatsoever.
They have lost their “gatekeeper” status and desperately seek to lock it back up. This is what assails and offends the most. CNN’s Chris Cuoma sums it up best with this brief video, which is breathtaking in its arrogance.
Leftists insisted you couldn’t possess those emails. Unless you printed them out, of course. Cuomo could have advised people to read these emails online at Wikipedia. He did not. Additionally, the bulk of Leftists stated the emails were themselves false. But you cannot have your cake and eat it too. Either the emails are fake or it’s illegal to possess stolen federal documents and a violation of the USC. You justified the release of Trump’s tax papers, which was illegal. You didn’t seem much upset with that, NYT.
Fake news polls, AMM? Fake rape stories on any number of occasions, AMM? Cars that tip over, AMM? Dan Rather lying about George Bush? Hundreds of false discrimination stories? Rick Jones? Sharmeka Moffitt? Reza Aslan? Tahera Ahmad? Anti-gay tip receipt? Duke University? Michael Nifong? Oberlin KKK hoax? Tawana Brawley? Grand Valley State University black chick? Joseph Baken? CAIR’s staged videos? CNN interviewing their own cameraman, claiming it was an anti-Trump protester on Don Lemon? “Trumpers violent” when it was in fact Leftists who burned, hit, stabbed, cut, destroyed property around the US? HRC having a “98% chance of winning”?
The “Fourth Estate” exists only as, now, a PR firm for Leftists and Demorats. We’re on to you. You are in fact naked.
How shallow be thy memory, American Media Maggots. Where an anti-conservative meme exists, you jump on it and provide vast amounts of time, headline space and copy inches. Because you have an anti-conservative theme to catch.
And in this process the American Media Maggots have lost their credibility for a myriad of reasons. But the persons and situations responsible for their current plight need go no farther then each and every newsroom around the country, 95% of whom are registered Demorats, Greens or Socialists. This is why, when asked, journalists will never ever tell you for whom they voted in any way. They won’t even own it, hiding under the cloak of “impartiality” which is the last thing they are. Craven cowards all. Like Hillary Rodham Clinton, they absolutely cannot tell the truth. There are no such animals as “impartiality” in today’s newsrooms.
Any old person can report or make the news now. Photos and videos are everywhere. “Real” journalists aren’t required any more — and by “real” journalists I mean those schooled at the feet of Leftist elite universities and subjected to the pathological, intolerant, unrealistic, biased, limited, bitter, moribund thoughts of the Left. “Journalism” is now a wide-open game unconfined by ideology, cash or structure.
More ludicrous is the thought embraced by the AMM — as I briefed above — that Millennials or GenZ’rs are going to PAY for your content. Good luck with that shite. They have no idea what a “newspaper” or a subscription IS.
You want fake news? How about these, to begin? The examples are simply endless.
Leftist journalists believe they are infinitely more sophisticated and enlightened than the bulk of their readers or viewers, and certainly more so than us commoners, groundlings, proles and serfs, the unwashed and unrefined rabble who dare to vote, act, speak, write or advocate against their superior insight and their elitist cultured views. Their Perriers beat our crass and crude Budweisers any day. Just ask them.
In a brief moment of clarity, Kanye West admitted.
Then there was the Washington Post’s loving clasp of “fake news” via TheIntercept.com:
THE WASHINGTON POST on Thursday night promoted the claims of a new, shadowy organization that smears dozens of U.S. news sites that are critical of U.S. foreign policy as being “routine peddlers of Russian propaganda.” The article by reporter Craig Timberg — headlined “Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say” — cites a report by an anonymous website calling itself PropOrNot, which claims that millions of Americans have been deceived this year in a massive Russian “misinformation campaign.”
The odd thing is, PropOrNot.com simply lists sites it considers propaganda and — I sure hope you’re sitting down for this one — most of them lean to the right. Further, it establishes no evidence and fails to release the names of its “editorial board” or any names at all, for that matter. It simply claims that it’s the Russians, the Russians, the Russians. Despite the fact that one month before PropOrNot came out (November 30th), the FBI (via the NY Times) divulged it had no evidence to conclude Russia was behind Trump or the hacking or the campaigns. See my post here.
Leftist Google got into the game by removing “fake news” that per capita black people commit more crimes than Caucasoids (they do, shown by FBI statistics) as indicated by that huge Righty UK organization known as the Guardian. Except that the Guardian does not lean right. Damn. Now that’s inconvenient.
Let’s not forget the “journalists” who colluded with the Clinton campaign as proven by The Telegraph and Wikileaks. They provided an extra crispy chunk of fake news.
Of course, Hillary Clinton had to enter the mix with this.
Hillary Clinton’s answer? Government intervention.
So Michelle Malkin countered logically and demolished HRC’s arguments.
Let’s not forget that Hillary Clinton is a personal purveyor of fake news as she claimed back in 2008 that she landed in Bosnia under sniper fire.
She also claimed that the Benghazi attacks were the result of a “terrible video” created in the US which caused the Libyan natives to go immediately berserk.
That was a monstrous lie, because Hillary Clinton already knew that night — as she wrote to the Libyan president and her own daughter Chelsea in emails — that video had nothing to do with the Benghazi attacks which resulted in the deaths of four Americans; it was instead an “al Qaeda-like group.”
Clinton’s answer: the government should determine what’s “real news” and what isn’t. Excellent. Just like Russian submarines and ships, let’s put a governmental Political Officer in each and every newsroom around the United States. Let’s license bloggers. The answer from Leftists is always to remove freedoms instead of expanding freedoms. Clamp down on free speech when it doesn’t correspond with their world. It’s about banning and censorship.
Even the proven faker Brian Williams got into the mix regarding “fake news.” That the American Media Maggots covered him at all, is that not the ultimate in insanity? An individual who was fired to lying about news given column inches and air time about “fake news”?
Obama couldn’t leave well enough alone and had Rolling Stone create fake news. From BizPacReview.com:
Obama tells ‘Rolling Stone’ Dems lost partly because ‘Fox News is in every bar and restaurant’
by Michael Dorstewitz
In a post-election interview with “Rolling Stone,” President Obama blamed his party’s failure to reach out to blue-collar workers on the proliferation of 24-hour cable news — specifically Fox News Channel.
“Part of it is Fox News in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country,” Obama said.
Throughout all of this, however, please note the recurring theme. At no time can fault be laid at the feet of the Demorats or Hillary Clinton for any reason whatsoever. And, of course, Obama is incorrect because CNN or HLN is on in every bar or lounge or waiting area across the nation, period. Obama lies and Rolling Stone helps create fake news.
Hillary Clinton, Brian Williams, the MSM, Barack Obama having the temerity to lecture me about fake news? I mean, honest to God, you can’t write this shite.
Speaking of God, just when you thought “fake news” couldn’t get any more stupid, it got more stupid when Pope Francis weighed in. When you compare “fake news” to coprophagia, you simply look the moron. Note to Pope Francis: stick to God and leave the coprophagia to the AMM.
Let us not forget the biggest, most shameful lies were started by Leftists and then promulgated by Leftist media such as, say, Obama’s insistence that if we like our doctor under the ACA we can keep our doctor whilst, simultaneously, Jonathan Gruber was larfing it up in various meetings and conferences explaining how it was all a massive “ruse for the rubes.” Ben Rhodes reveled in how Obama’s actual anti-Israel and pro-Muslim policies. These are lies of both commission and omission.
If you want a real hoot, read the Kelly Riddell article at the Washington Times entitled “Top 10 ‘real’ news stories that turned out to be fake.” She skewers the shite out of Obama, Ferguson, BLM (“hands up don’t shoot”), the Iran Deal negotiated with “moderate Iranians,” Bowe Bergdahl’s exchange, Benghazi and the video, climate change and hurricanes, Fidel Castro was a great guy with fabulous free Cuban healthcare, cops are killing blacks at an unprecedented racist rate, Steve Bannon is a white supremacist and the biggest LIE of all: Trump will lose horribly to Hillary Clinton.
The bottom line is this: the American Media Maggots are quaking and frightened to their very core. They are now the thing they accused George Bush of being: incurious. They no longer ask questions. They’d rather the government provide their talking points. So now their livelihoods, their credibility (though the vast number of “journalists” in any given newsroom couldn’t likely spell or define the word), their cash flow is on the line. Their very survival.
No one “owns” the truth. Not the Right, not the Left. And like anything else that is consumed, the phrase caveat emptor pervades. If you cannot detect actual “fake news” then you resemble a Stegosaurus: a walnut for a brain and a ganglion of nerves in your hips to make your legs work.
One must be a wise consumer of news. And beware.
Because, American Media Maggots, no one trusts you any more.
First, please watch the video. Joe Scarborough is entirely correct. Watch the Leftist chick on his right, listen to what she says, how she says it, her body language.
Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on last Monday’s (11-28) Morning Joe on MSNBC.
But because I am “fake news” (and other Conservatives like me), what I display here must be wrong. Ginned up. False. Right?
Unless. . .
It would appear that Joe Scarborough is accurate and Miss Smarmy Pants is bleeding condescension, arrogance, is contemptuous, dismissive, and would rather leave facts behind as soon as humanly possible.
Joe Scarborough dared to speak the truth. You are hated, American Media Maggots, quite precisely because you and Leftists/Demorats are so alike, reveling in your hypocrisy.
That is a major factor for the AMM hemorrhaging readers and advertisers. That is also a major factor in your creation of the “fake news” theme, because you are also losing your gatekeeper status. You are in a fight and you’re assembling more weapons with which to combat those considering abandonment.
SCARBOROUGH: “You still don’t get it. You’re still being hypocritical! You can get it wrong in the primary, that’s fine – you can get it wrong in the general election but you keep getting it wrong!”
You’re losing your fastidious and once-ubiquitous grip.
