CNN used to be a trusted news source. But as soon as candidate Donald Trump came on the screen they lost all ability to deliver fair and balanced news. At this point, the only people that watch their news programs are travelers stuck in airports.
CNN could have used the virus pandemic to rightly criticize President Trump where he was falling short on response, instead they made themselves look like fools at levels no one could have imagined. They first criticized President Trump for taking the virus seriously when “the flu was obviously more dangerous.” They very quickly flipped the script and said that he wasn’t taking it seriously enough because it was going to kill millions of Americans. Have they got anything right in this entire mess? No, seriously. Can you think of a single example?
To prove this point, we have to look no further than CNN’s most watched news host Chris Cuomo. He’s top talent at CNN yet he’s easily one of the least reliable “journalists” at the network. This story will show you.
Ever Since President Trump went on record saying that doctors were hopeful that a treatment involving hydroxychloroquine would be successful, the liberal media have been out to prove him wrong. They have gone after the drug in every way they can. They screamed relentlessly about a study that suggests the drug isn’t very effective at saving COVID patients who are already on ventilators (so far nothing has proven helpful at that stage). At the same time, they ignored more than a dozen studies that show how the drug lowers the duration of infection and reduces the risk of going onto a ventilator in the first place.
President Trump then blew up the media’s collective heads when he said that he was currently on a hydroxychloroquine regimen — as prescribed by his doctor. The media has had countless “experts” on to say how it’s dangerous and going to kill him. Pelosi even pretended like she’s worried for his health (while calling him fat).
Chris Cuomo did a segment explaining how President Trump is risking his life and taking the medicine away from people who need it more.
That last one is particularly rich. If you recall, Cuomo tested positive for the Wu Flu and reportedly quarantined himself in his basement for a couple of weeks. His emergence was the cringiest segment in CNN history (and that’s saying something).
In a great twist of irony, his treatment course for dealing with the virus was leaked. You’ll never believe what drug Cuomo took, at the behest of his doctor, to fight off the infection. That’s right. Cuomo took hydroxychloroquine (along with other medications). He ended up with a lower-than-average time of infection. He never needed to be hospitalized. It’s almost like his case perfectly lined up with what all of those studies have been saying.
So, even while Cuomo’s words criticized and ridiculed the President for his stance on hydroxychloroquine, Cuomo’s actions did something else entirely. Hypocrisy aside, Cuomo’s case is just more evidence on the heaping pile that proves President Trump right. Yet again. The media can’t be trusted to tell the truth when it comes to this administration. If we had a nickel for every time the President made a fool of the media, we wouldn’t be worried about the economy.
