(National Sentinel)Â Fake News: You can tell the goofballs and hacks who work forÂ CNN are getting desperate about their consistentlyÂ low viewership as evidenced by their increasinglyÂ testy exchanges with supporters of and advisors to POTUS Donald Trump.
It got testy again Thursday evening during an exchange between Chris Cuomo and presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway in a discussion over Paul Manafort’s conviction and former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s plea deal this week.
The kicker (or corker) came when CuomoÂ actually tried to assert to Conway thatÂ CNN has more integrity than the Trump White House.
This, from “Fake News Central,” where viewership and ratings routinely come in lower thanÂ blockbuster ratings kings like The Home and Garden Network.
â€œWhere in the Manafort trial is Russia collusion Trump?â€ Conway challenged Cuomo after he said that.
â€œI donâ€™t care,â€ Cuomo replied.
Of course, he doesn’t. All he and his network ‘care’ about isÂ getting a duly-elected president tossed out of office,Â journalism andÂ integrity be damned.
â€œYou should care,â€ she responded.
â€œThe president lied about what he knew about these women,â€ Cuomo said, â€œhe should not lie to the American people, in their face, time and again. The Washington Post does a blow by blow take-through, itâ€™s the first lie theyâ€™ve ever flagged in their fact-check.â€
First of all, Cuomo isn’t a mind reader so to arbitrarilyÂ claim someone is “lying” is factually untenable and, possibly, libelous.
Secondly,Â even one of their own hacks, former Obama administration official Van Jones admitted the “Russian collusion” narrative was BS,Â despite the fact thatÂ CNN is still pushing it.
That’s someÂ real integrity there, Chris.
â€œJust because you are saying that, wait, I have a very simple question for you,â€ Conway said. â€œWhy is it not important for you to replay and talk about the presidentâ€™s own words, why donâ€™t you show him answering that question?â€
â€œBecause heâ€™s lying,â€ Cuomo said.
â€œNo, you donâ€™t want people to see him answer the question,â€ she charged.
Where’s your crystal ball, Chris?
Cuomo then played the tape that Cohen released of him and Trump allegedly discussing a hush money payment — but Conway challenged him to playÂ another tape.
â€œYou know what tape I want to hear?â€ Conway interjected, as the hack sighed in desperation.
â€œExcuse me, tell us whatâ€™s on the tape of Chris Cuomo and Michael Cohen,â€ she asked, â€œwhatâ€™s on the two hour tape with the two of you?â€
â€œTons of stuff,â€ he said.
â€œOK, well tell us! Transparency, accountability, facts first, why?â€ Conway said mockingly.
â€œIâ€™ll tell you why I canâ€™t,â€ Cuomo responded, â€œbecause Iâ€™ll tell you why, because thereâ€™s a little difference you and me, and the shop youâ€™re working for, integrityâ€¦â€
â€œThe White House? How dare you!â€ she shot back.
â€œYou should admit heâ€™s lying,â€ Cuomo responded, â€œand you donâ€™t, and thatâ€™s why people donâ€™t trust you. Thatâ€™s why, right there.”
Uh,Â who don’t people trust, Chris? After all, it’sÂ your network that doesn’t rate. And do you ever rememberÂ anyone from CNN challenging the truthfulness of Barack Obama, especially to this degree?
Yeah, we don’t either.
Why Kellyanne bothers to spar with these empty-headed anti-Trump hacksÂ pretending to be journalists is beyond us. There’s no point to it and itÂ isn’t journalism.
Cuomo and the rest of theÂ CNN lineup prove that every day.
