We have now recognized for a very long time that CNN is, to place it
politely, sub-par within the intelligence division. However, by revelations
about Chris Cuomo, we’re studying extra concerning the corruption that appears to
prevail in that firm. Was it actually a secret from everybody at CNN that Cuomo
was collaborating together with his brother to smear “that Fox climate bitch” who
uncovered the 1000’s of deaths for which Andy Cuomo was immediately accountable?

Now we’ve the case of CNN producer John Griffin, who has
been indicted for sexual offenses involving underage women:

veteran CNN producer who labored “shoulder to shoulder” with now disgraced
ex-anchor Chris Cuomo has been indicted on prices of luring younger women to his
Vermont ski home for “sexual subservience” coaching.

Griffin, of Stamford, CT, allegedly used messaging apps to befriend and
persuade mothers of younger women, telling them “a lady is a lady no matter
her age,” and that he needs to be the one to “prepare” their daughters sexually,
in accordance with the indictment from the US Lawyer of Vermont.

So it was like The Handmaid’s Story, delivered to
life by a Democratic Occasion activist.

44, allegedly acquired at the least one mother of two daughters to carry the woman to his
Ludlow ski getaway, in June 2020.

was the mother’s accountability to see that her older daughter, simply 13, was
“educated correctly,” Griffin instructed her, in accordance with the indictment.

Yuck. Might Chris Cuomo have been unaware that his producer
was a degenerate? Or is that this simply the tradition that prevails at CNN, as
mirrored in Cuomo’s personal sexual
harassment points?

his LinkedIn profile, Griffin boasts of getting labored “shoulder-to-shoulder
with lead anchor Chris Cuomo, seeing him by every present and producing dwell
breaking information throughout the nation and all over the world.”

I haven’t watched CNN in years, besides as compelled to at
airport gates–a contract that, fortunately, has expired. CNN’s viewership is
declining quickly, however not as quickly as that corrupt community deserves.

UPDATE: A commenter factors out that no dialogue of CNN
corruption is full and not using a reference to Jeffrey Toobin. Good level! And
then there may be Don Lemon. These are tales for an additional day, however definitely
need to be remembered when contemplating the corrupt tradition of CNN.



Don’t They Imagine Us?

By Konstantin Kisin | Pill Journal

struggling to grasp the place all this vaccine hesitancy comes from. Let me
assist you to.

Think about you’re a traditional particular person. The yr is 2016. Rightly
or wrongly, you consider most of what you see within the media. You consider polls
are broadly reflective of public opinion. You consider docs and scientists
are reliable and unbiased. You’re an honest, cheap one that follows
the foundations and trusts the authorities.

Think about your shock, then, when Brexit, which you had been
assured couldn’t occur as a result of it was a fringe motion led by racists for
racists, occurs. The polls, which broadly predicted it wouldn’t occur, had been
flawed. The specialists and pundits who instructed you day after day that it wouldn’t
occur had been additionally flawed. “Oh effectively,” you say, “these items occur.”

Think about that quickly after Brexit, Donald Trump is working
for president. You’re instructed by probably the most reliable media retailers that he’s
going to lose. Some specialists say his
opponent has a 99% probability of profitable. Think about waking up the morning after the
election to find that the pollsters, specialists, and politicians you continue to
trusted had been flawed once more. Now the racist monster who you had been instructed would by no means
get close to the White Home is the chief of the free world.

“How did this occur?” you ask your self. How may
everybody I depend on for good data be so flawed? “It was the Russians,”
they inform you. “The Russians did Brexit, and so they acquired Trump elected too.”
Think about that for the subsequent three years, day after day, the media and politicians
you continue to belief preserve you updated on this story of Trump’s collusion with
Russia. They inform you the how, when, the place, and why: the dossiers, the
whistleblowers, the peeing prostitutes. Think about your desperation for issues to
in some way make sense once more.

Right here comes the Mueller report. Laborious proof of overseas
meddling in Brexit and the 2016 U.S. election is coming to set the world proper
once more.

Think about your shock, then, while you uncover that Brexit
had little to do with overseas meddling, and Robert Mueller has little or no to
report about Trump and the Russians. The collusion story, which dominated your
information consumption for the higher a part of three years, slowly dies down. Then it’s
gone. Nobody talks about it anymore. Think about that little by little, you’re beginning
to really feel that the occasions you had been instructed wouldn’t and couldn’t occur not solely
occurred, however occurred with out some form of malign interference. As an alternative,
tens of millions of your fellow residents merely voted for them. Within the American case,
it seems a lot of your fellow residents who merely voted for Trump come from
states which were devastated by an opioid epidemic enabled by a corrupt
system of incentives involving the Meals and Drug Administration, docs, and
Huge Pharma. (You may wish to pay attention to this. It can come up once more later.)

Once more, you ask, “How may this occur?” And once more, the
media retailers and political representatives you’ve all the time trusted have the
reply: racism.

“Your nation is racist,” they inform you. In case you’re white,
this may increasingly appear unusual to you. Apart from a handful of idiots, you’ve by no means met
a racist. In case you’re an ethnic minority immigrant like me, this appears even
stranger. Why would folks in one of the welcoming, tolerant international locations in
the world wish to persuade themselves their nation is racist when it’s so
clearly not?

However the proof is correct there in your TV display.
Think about your horror as a well-known and beloved homosexual African American actor is
assaulted by MAGA hat-wearing thugs who racially abuse him and put a noose
round his neck. In a prime-time interview, he cries whereas speaking
about it.

Think about your outrage as you see information stories of a bunch
of MAGA hat-wearing youngsters from a spiritual faculty contemptuously confront a
Native American elder. Skilled, grownup commentators on TV inform you
the child has a “punchable face,” and whilst you abhor violence, it’s laborious to
disagree. Think about that for days you watch protection of those occasions, with knowledgeable
after knowledgeable, pundit after pundit, sharing and fueling your outrage. Perhaps your
nation actually is racist. Perhaps you’re racist. Had been you all the time
simply blind?

Think about that quickly after, nevertheless, the Jussie Smollett
story seems to be an attention-seeking hoax: He made all of it up. Think about you
additionally rapidly uncover that the Native American elder was the one who confronted the
youngsters, and never the opposite means round. “If that is such a racist nation,” you ask
your self, “why would they should make up tales of racism?” As you ponder
this, you keep in mind that for years now, you’ve been anticipated to go together with
different, extra elaborate make-believe tales.

You’re anticipated to grasp that gender is just not as binary
as faculty, your eyes, and your individual expertise have led you to consider. No matter
you discovered about biology rising up is just not solely flawed, it’s pathological and
dangerous, in accordance to
the American Psychological Affiliation. You not know what number of genders
you’re anticipated to have the ability to acknowledge. You do know that asking questions is

Think about that you just nonetheless wish to consider the specialists and
the commentators, however now that requires you to consider your nation is racist,
that males are dangerous, and that gender is a social assemble, which is an thought you
nonetheless don’t actually perceive.

It’s at this level {that a} pandemic breaks out in China.

You’re initially unconcerned, however as terrifying scenes
more and more emerge from Italy and different international locations nearer to residence, it’s clear
that one thing massive is occurring. You watch nervously as politicians give press
convention after press convention, flanked by specialists, to elucidate the
state of affairs.

President Trump shuts down journey to the USA
from China. He has been broadly condemned as a racist repeatedly previously,
and the identical rationalization is given this time. It’s not simply People who inform
you Trump is racist for calling a virus that emerged in China a “Chinese language
virus.” In response, the mayor of Florence advises Italian
residents to struggle Trump’s anti-Chinese language bigotry by “hugging a Chinese language particular person.”
Shortly after, Home Speaker Nancy Pelosi, one of the revered and
highly effective Democrats within the nation, visits Chinatown
in San Francisco to elucidate that “there’s no cause vacationers or locals ought to
be staying away from the realm due to coronavirus considerations.”

“Thank God there are some wise, nonracist individuals who
aren’t overreacting,” you say to your self. Think about watching as Trump doubles
down on his racism by claiming the virus could have come from a lab in Wuhan.
“Nonsense,” you assume. You’re extra involved with how finest to guard your self
and your loved ones from this lethal illness than with its origins at this level
anyway. You take into account shopping for surgical masks, or utilizing home made ones—you’ve seen
guests and vacationers from Asian international locations put on them, and so they’ve been by
issues like this earlier than, so possibly it’s finest to observe their lead.

However the nation’s chief medical specialists inform you
to not put on masks, and to give attention to washing your fingers as a substitute. As lockdowns are
launched all over the world, you diligently observe all the foundations. You keep at
residence. You solely exit as soon as, and dwell off financial savings or authorities grants. You do
your finest to maintain your fingers clear, to not contact different surfaces that different
folks contact. Some political representatives make the solemn choice to close
down seashores, parks, and playgrounds, encouraging everybody to remain indoors.

You’re proud to be doing all your half. Because of you and
tens of millions of your fellow residents, the primary wave of the pandemic overwhelms sure
sizzling spots, however it doesn’t devastate the well being care system at a nationwide
stage. Whereas 1000’s sadly die, you’ve helped to guard these round you.

Think about your confusion as the identical individuals who spent three
months telling you not solely that masks don’t work, however that there are a number of
causes you shouldn’t put on or buy them, abruptly introduce masks mandates.
We’re “following the science,” they inform you. This appears to make little sense,
however a pandemic isn’t any time for questions. And who is aware of, possibly our understanding
of the science developed?

As you cautiously go to the grocery store, you discover that
masks have made folks much less prone to socially distance. You keep in mind studying
someplace that bicycle helmets work equally: They offer the wearer extra confidence,
and the result’s typically extra accidents and accidents, not fewer. “Foolish folks,”
you say to your self. “If solely they might observe the specialists.”

You flip in your TV and be taught that customers at your native
grocery store aren’t the one ones who’ve been ignoring the foundations. Nancy Pelosi
organized for a salon, shutdown by authorities decree, to open privately for
her—then publicly blamed the enterprise proprietor for violating the lockdown.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom is seen consuming dinner at one of the costly
eating places in America with a big group of unmasked folks indoors. Within the
U.Ok., Neil Ferguson, the epidemiologist whose projections had been used because the
foundation for lockdowns, seems to have damaged his personal guidelines to get some motion
together with his married lover. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s chief adviser, Dominic
Cummings, drove midway throughout the nation to make sure he had a greater place to
isolate. The journalists who berate him
for this are later discovered to have attended an unmasked, indoor celebration in
breach of the foundations. The lockdowns proceed.

Then a person is killed in Minneapolis by a police officer
arresting him for a petty crime. The person is African American. The officer is
white. The arrest and homicide are captured on video, which rapidly goes viral
all over the world. Think about your horror as you watch an officer of the legislation kneel
on one other man’s neck till he passes out and later dies. “That is disgusting,”
you say to your self. “I hope they throw the ebook at him.” In a single day, an enormous
marketing campaign for racial justice springs up all over the world.

Nobody explains what racism needed to do with the incident,
however they don’t have to. As by now, the West is racist, America is
racist, and police are racist. Subsequently any time a criminal offense has a white
perpetrator and an African American sufferer, there is just one doable motive.
The truth that an an identical incident led to the dying of a white man named Tony
Timpa in Dallas in August 2016 isn’t talked about for context.

Whereas the lockdown guidelines stay in place, the protests
in opposition to injustice spill out into public areas. Tens of 1000’s of individuals
crowd into the streets of main cities. Few of them put on masks, and social
distancing is nonexistent. Clashes with police ensue, and in the USA,
protesters loot shops, destroy companies, assault residents, and begin fires.
A retired African American police officer from St. Louis named David Dorn is
amongst dozens of people who find themselves murdered within the chaos.

The media describes these occasions as “largely peaceable
protests,” as broadcast reporters stand in
entrance of burning buildings. After months of harsh restrictions, the media and
political class provide no criticism of protests that violate each aspect of lockdown
coverage. After months of telling you to remain at residence to keep away from spreading COVID,
docs clarify that
moderately than being a possible type of tremendous spreading, “protest is a profound
public well being intervention.”

Huge tech corporations go into overdrive to cease the unfold
of what they name disinformation. Different factors of view concerning the
efficacy of masks and lockdowns, in addition to the origins of the virus itself,
are more and more blocked, flagged, and censored. Makes an attempt to debate the
destructive impacts of lockdowns on well being and psychological well-being, particularly that
of youngsters barred from going to high school, are suppressed. Because the yr runs on,
with a pivotal U.S. election looming, Trump guarantees an enormous push to develop a
vaccine. Then-Sen. Kamala Harris, working for vice chairman, says that
if Trump suggested folks to take a vaccine, she wouldn’t take it.

On the eve of the election, a serious media outlet releases
a dangerous report about Hunter Biden, son of presidential candidate Joe Biden.
The story alleges corruption that will implicate his father, in addition to drug
use, paying for prostitutes, and extra. Twitter and different social media platforms
instantly forestall the story from being shared. The media strains up
commentators to say the story was, but once more, “Russian disinformation.” As soon as
Hunter’s father wins the election, it turns into clear that a number of key parts
of the story are probably correct, and the laptop computer from which the knowledge was
recovered is just not in truth a Russian decoy, however Hunter Biden’s laptop computer.

In the meantime, within the U.Ok., the publicly out there variety of
COVID sufferers and deaths nationwide seems to have been inaccurate. For
a while, any British citizen who died at any level for any cause after
having examined constructive for COVID was counted as
dying from COVID, even when it was from a automobile crash. The
official determine is later revised once more.
The variety of people who find themselves in hospital due to COVID additionally seems to be

Now {that a} bigot is not president of the United
States, closing nationwide borders to guests from different international locations is not
thought-about xenophobic. In truth, it’s broadly advocated within the media. Likewise,
it’s not thought-about racist to detain folks on the border, to place them
in holding cells, to deport them, or to easily flip them away.

The supposedly racist conspiracy idea that the virus
got here from a lab in Wuhan is now additionally open for dialogue. It even seems to be like
probably the most credible rationalization of the origins of the virus. Think about your horror
as you be taught that the rationale 1000’s of individuals died within the first wave of the
pandemic was that aged sufferers with COVID had been allowed, and typically
compelled, to be launched again into nursing houses. In truth, it was a private
choice by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, brother of CNN anchor Chris Cuomo. Gov.
Cuomo’s writer later suspends promotion of a ebook he wrote within the meantime.
It’s about his management through the pandemic.

In the meantime, Texas and Florida, which largely remained open
and averted draconian lockdowns, appear to have made out OK. Children have been going
to high school, companies have stayed open. You take a look at COVID dying charges by state,
and neither Florida nor Texas cracks the highest half.

It’s at this level that vaccines grow to be the principle focus
of presidency coverage and media commentary.

The identical individuals who instructed you Brexit would by no means occur,
that Trump would by no means win, that when he did win it was due to Russian
collusion but additionally due to racism, that you could observe lockdowns whereas they
don’t, that masks don’t work, that masks do work, that social justice protests
throughout pandemic lockdowns are a type of “well being intervention,” that ransacking
African American communities within the identify of combating racism is a “largely
peaceable” type of protest, that poor and underserved youngsters locked out of
shuttered faculties are “nonetheless studying,” that Jussie Smollett was a sufferer of a
hate crime, that males are poisonous, that there’s an infinite variety of genders,
that COVID couldn’t have come from a lab till possibly it did, that closing
borders is racist till possibly it isn’t, that you just shouldn’t take Trump’s
vaccine, that you could take the vaccine developed through the Trump
administration, that Andrew Cuomo is a good chief, that Andrew Cuomo is a
granny killer, that the variety of COVID deaths is one factor after which one other …
are the identical folks telling you now that the vaccine is protected, that you could
take it, and that should you don’t, you’ll be a second-class citizen.

Perceive vaccine hesitancy now?
