      By Laura Anthony and JOCELYN GECKER



      DAVIS, California --

      A crowd protesting a far-right commentator's appearance at the University of California at Berkeley hurled smoke bombs, broke windows and started fires Wednesday night, prompting officials to call off the event.

      The decision came two hours before Wednesday's talk by Milo Yiannopoulos (yuh-NAH'-poh-lihs), a polarizing editor of Breitbart News, after some 1,500 people had gathered outside the venue.

      But officials said it was a smaller group of protesters dressed in black and in hooded sweatshirts that showed up as night fell to break windows and throw smoke bombs and flares. Fires were deliberately set, the university said.

      "This was a group of agitators who were masked up, throwing rocks, commercial grade fireworks and Molotov cocktails at officers," said UC Berkeley Police Chief Margo Bennet.

      Bennet said police determined at that point they couldn't guarantee security, canceled the event and evacuated Yiannopoulos from the building.

      There were no immediate reports of arrests or serious injuries, she said.

      President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Thursday morning to comment, tweeting: "If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view - NO FEDERAL FUNDS?"

      Prior to the burst of violence, hundreds of peaceful demonstrators carrying signs that read "Hate Speech Is Not Free Speech" had been protesting the appearance for hours.

      As the evening wore on, crowds of protesters cleared away from outside the building. By 8 p.m. the crowd had thinned and at least 100 protesters that remained danced to a brass band playing music and marched off campus and into a main avenue.

      Yiannopoulos, a 32-year-old right-wing provocateur, is a vocal supporter of Trump and a self-proclaimed internet troll whose comments have been criticized as racist, misogynist, anti-Muslim and white supremacist. He was banned from Twitter after leading a harassment campaign against "Ghostbusters" actress Leslie Jones.

      His visit to Berkeley was sponsored by the campus Republican club. The university has stressed it did not invite him and does not endorse his ideas but is committed to free speech and rejected calls to cancel the event.

      "The event has been cancelled," Yiannopoulos posted on his Facebook page. "I'll let you know more when the facts become clear. One thing we do know for sure: the Left is absolutely terrified of free speech and will do literally anything to shut it down."

      The Berkeley College Republicans said its "constitutional right to free speech was silenced by criminals and thugs."

      "Their success is a defeat for civilized society and the free exchange of ideas on college campuses across America," it said in a statement.

      The university, which had requested assistance from police in nine UC campuses, sent a notice to all students earlier Wednesday that warned of crowds near the student union, where the 500-seat, sold-out event was scheduled.

      Yiannopoulos' talks have sparked protests, shouting matches and occasional violence at stops around the country. A man was shot and wounded at protests outside his Jan. 21 talk at the University of Washington.

      Rowdy protests at UC Davis Jan. 13 prompted campus Republicans to cancel his appearance at the last minute. His final stop was supposed to be UCLA on Thursday but the invitation was rescinded, making Berkeley his grand finale.
















      Stunning Fake News – CNN Promotes Conspiracy Theory That Milo Organized Berkeley Protests Against Himself…

      Posted on February 3, 2017 by sundance

      CNN has continued to lead the way in manufactured news cycles through the past two years. However, last night on Don Lemon’s show they took fake news broadcasting to new levels of ridiculousness.

      During a segment with Robert Reich, Don Lemon and Reich promoted a conspiracy theory that Milo Yiannopoulous actually manufactured the Berkeley protests in an effort to shut down his own speech:



      Robert Reich […] Don, and I want to be very, very clear. I was there for part of last night, and I know what I saw. And those people were not Berkeley students. Those were outsiders, agitators. I’ve never seen them before. There’s rumors that they actually were right-wingers, they were part of a kind of a group that were organized and were ready to create the kind of tumult and danger you saw that forced the police to cancel the event.

      Don Lemon […] “You think this was a strategy by Yiannopoulos or right-wingers to — they put this on so they could — in an effort to show that, you know, there’s no free speech on a college campus like UC Berkeley?”

      Robert Reich […] I wouldn’t bet against it, Don. You know, again, I saw these people. They were very — they all looked almost paramilitary. They were not from the campus, and I’ve heard, you know, again, I don’t want to say factually, but I heard that there was some relationship there between these people and the right-wing, and the right-wing movement that is affiliated with Breitbart News.

        Secret Service Puts The Atlantic on Blast for Fake News

        Steve Clemons, Washington editor at large for The Atlantic, began a series of Tweets on Thursday claiming that Secret Service manager-level personnel were forced to resign and were escorted out of the Old Eisenhower Executive Office Building (EEOB).

        Over the course of the next hour, Clemons continued to Tweet the erroneous information and included statements he attributed to Secret Service managers.

        Breitbart Texas reached out to the Secret Service who confirmed they contacted Clemons via Twitter advising him his story was not accurate. “His story was false,” Secret Service Spokesman Joe Casey told Breitbart Texas in a phone conversation Friday night. “It was not Secret Service personnel who were fired or escorted out of the building.”
        It appears Clemons was in a rush to get his story out before confirming his facts because he had a plane to catch from Tokyo to Washington, D.C.

        The Washington Examiner actually contacted the Secret Service and reported that officials denied Clemons report calling it “absolutely false.” The Washington news outlet described Clemons as, “a longtime left-wing think tank writer who now serves as the Washington editor at large of the Atlantic and National Journal.”
        “He has retracted his false report,” Secret Service Spokesman Casey told Breitbart Texas.
        After getting wifi on his flight, Clemons began to realize his error and backtracked on his Tweets.
        The @SecretService responded that they are not the agency that had management changes last night. Another Agency did.

        Clemons admitted he made an assumption about what agency the fired workers reported to instead of getting a statement from Secret Service or the White House.
        In apparent frustration, the Secret Service Tweeted directly at Clemons advising, “Your reporting continues to be false. Still waiting for you to contact us for official statement.”

          Conway: Media inciting mob violence

          By Rick Moran

          Somebody prominent on the left must call out the media and the "activists" who are getting close to actually inciting violence against President Trump and Republicans.

          Trump aide Kellyanne Conway told Sean Hannity yesterday that this "lack of respect" was inciting the mob in the street to commit violent acts, despite not even knowing what they were demonstrating against.
          "The coverage never changed, it never progressed, it never matured," Conway, who serves as counselor to the President, told radio host Sean Hannity. "It never took on the aura of respect that it deserved, and if you are not showing the President and his main spokespeople respect, then you're not showing the office respect, and you are inciting mob mentality if not mob violence. You are encouraging people to go out there and unpeacefully protest and block airport entrances for people who are going to visit a sick parent and can't make their flight, or are going for a bereavement call and can't make their flight."

          "There's nothing peaceful and nothing Democratic about folks who are out there just trying to re-litigate the election and protesting things they know nothing about," Conway continued. "If you surveyed these protesters, I guarantee you, you'd have a very low level of literacy when it comes to 'why are you here, what does that executive order do and what does it not do?'"

          Earlier, the President's top adviser said she didn't see a difference between coverage of Trump during the campaign and the coverage of him as president.
          "I only care, Sean, if people are being disrespectful to the President of the United States. That is unacceptable. I was raised to respect the Office of the President and its current occupant no matter who it's been, and I just think you can't really show a difference in the coverage of Donald Trump among some of these outlets and some of these reporters and tweeters, between when he was running for president, when he became the nominee for the Republicans, when he was the president-elect, and now when he's President."


          This is not even remotely similar to charges made by the left that putting a bulls-eye over a congressional district led to the shooting of a congressman. These are barely disguised calls by prominent Democrats and media outlets to create an explosion of violence in the streets that not only threatens the civic order, but plays to the advantage of Trump opponents who seek to terrify ordinary people into opposing the president.

          Is she exaggerating? Here's the sitting senator from Virginia, Tim Kaine, encouraging street protests against Trump:
          "Then, people coming out in protest of these orders. So, the way we get outside the bubble is we take advantage of this tremendous public outcry against the administration. What we've got to do is fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, fight online, fight at the ballot box, and now there's the momentum to be able to do this. And we're not afraid of the popular outcry, we're energized by it and that's going to help us do our job and do it better."
          Kaine knows full well that many protests across the country have turned violent, and for him to agitate for more, when a responsible lawmaker would have advised calm, shows only the heights anti-Trump hysteria has reached.

          Mashable is reporting that there have been over 12,000 tweets and Facebook postings calling for the assassination of the president. Both platforms have policies against overt threats to kill the president, but the postings continue.

          Trump has been in office for only 13 days. He is just getting started implementing his agenda. Unless something drastically changes, the next few months could be the most violent in America since the race riots of the 1960s. What leftists like Kaine and other prominent liberals don't seem to get is that there is a dedicated cadre of activists who see violence as a way to gain power and influence. By playing to the worst of the ideological left, they threaten to bring chaos and death to our streets.

          No more irresponsible campaign against a political opponent from either party has ever been waged.

            Errors From The Press Are Piling Up In The Opening Weeks Of The Trump Administration

            Alex Pfeiffer Reporter

            6:52 PM 02/04/2017

            Journalists can’t seem to get their stories straight in the opening weeks of the Trump administration, whether in tweets or in articles where falsehoods have been spread almost daily.

            The mistakes have not just been from newer liberal news outlets such The Huffington Post or BuzzFeed, but from legacy media like Reuters, The Washington Post, and The New York Times.

            What follows are several botched stories or conflicting reports since President Trump took office.

            The Trump administration eases sanctions on a Russian intelligence agency.

            Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2017/02/04/er...#ixzz4Xm5giXht

            NBC reported Thursday that the Trump administration was easing sanctions on the FSB, one of Russia’s primary intelligence agencies. Peter Alexander, NBC’s national correspondent, tweeted, “US Treasury Dept easing Obama admin sanctions to allow companies to do transactions with Russia’s FSB, successor org to KGB.”

            Less than an hour later, he wrote, “Source familiar w sanctions says it’s a technical fix, planned under Obama, to avoid unintended consequences of cybersanctions.” His initial and incorrect tweet received nearly seven thousand retweets and the correction has less than 300 retweets.

            Vanity Fair is still running the uncorrected article: “Russian Stocks Surge As Comrade Trump Eases Relations With Vlad.”

            The Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice were blindsided by Trump’s executive order on immigration and refugees.

            The New York Times came out with a report this past week titled: “How Trump’s Rush to Enact an Immigration Ban Unleashed Global Chaos.”

            It stated: “Gen. John F. Kelly, the secretary of homeland security, had dialed in from a Coast Guard plane as he headed back to Washington from Miami. Along with other top officials, he needed guidance from the White House, which had not asked his department for a legal review of the order. Halfway into the briefing, someone on the call looked up at a television in his office. ‘The president is signing the executive order that we’re discussing,’ the official said, stunned.”

            Secretary Kelly, however, later strongly denied this report during a press conference Tuesday. “We knew it was coming. It wasn’t a surprise,” Kelly said.

            NBC had their own story about Trump blindsiding officials. John Harwood tweeted, “senior Justice official tells [NBC News] that Dept had no input. not sure who in WH is writing/reviewing. standard NSC process not functioning.” This tweet received over 3,000 retweets. (RELATED: NYT/CNBC’s John Harwood Advises Clinton Campaign, Gloats About Provoking Trump At Debate)

            A few days later, CNN reported that an internal memo showed that the DOJ had in fact approved Trump’s executive order.

            Steve Bannon went to visit Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly to convince him to temporarily ban certain green card holders.

            The Washington Post’s Josh Rogin forgot to ask the White House for comment about the movements of a White House official for a story he published Saturday.

            Rogin reported Saturday: “White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon wanted to stop Kelly in his tracks. Bannon paid a personal and unscheduled visit to Kelly’s Department of Homeland Security office to deliver an order: Don’t issue the waiver. Kelly, according to two administration officials familiar with the confrontation, refused to comply with Bannon’s instruction.”

            The report was spread by journalists on Twitter and picked up by New York magazine, The Week, and Mother Jones.

            However, an editor’s note was later added to Rogin’s story. It states: “Prior to publication of this column, The Post sought comment from the Department of Homeland Security but not from the White House. We should have done both. After publication, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told The Post that Stephen Bannon did not travel to see Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly on the evening of Jan. 28.”

            It was also Rogin who reported that the entire senior administrative team at the state department resigned in the opening week of the Trump administration. The columnist failed to mention that only one undersecretary of state stayed in the transition from the Clinton to Bush administration.

            The Trump administration forces the resignations of several senior Secret Service officials.

            The Atlantic’s Washington editor-at-large Steve Clemons tweeted Friday that Secret Service management level personnel were forced to resign Thursday night and escorted out of the Eisenhower executive office building. He subsequently tweeted that one of these “fired” Secret Service agents “speculates” that Trump is “restructuring the service.”

            A Secret Service spokeswoman told The Daily Caller that Clemons’ reporting is “completely false.” The Secret Service even tweeted at him “Still waiting for you to contact us for official statement.” Clemons has not deleted his false tweets which have received thousands of retweets.

            Trump thinks Sean Spicer overdid it in his first appearance. Or does he?

            White House press secretary Sean Spicer used his first appearance behind the podium on Jan. 21 to scold the press for what he perceived as dishonest reporting about the crowd size at Trump’s inauguration. Spicer was aggressive and loud during his statement, and The New York Times subsequently reported that day that Trump believed Spicer went too far.

            Two days later, The Washington Post reported: “In Trump’s mind, Spicer’s attack on the news media was not forceful enough.”

            The Associated Press and CNN can’t agree about whether Trump threatened to send troops into Mexico.

            The AP, arguably America’s most reputable news source, reported Wednesday that President Trump threatened to send troops into Mexico while on the phone with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto. “You have a bunch of bad hombres down there,” Trump told Peña Nieto in the excerpt provided to the AP. “You aren’t doing enough to stop them. I think your military is scared. Our military isn’t, so I just might send them down to take care of it.”

            Hours later, however, CNN would report that the AP excerpt was an internal readout of the call and not the actual transcript. CNN said Trump actually told Peña Nieto, “You have some pretty tough hombres in Mexico that you may need help with. We are willing to help with that big-league, but they have be knocked out and you have not done a good job knocking them out.”

            “The excerpt of the transcript obtained by CNN differs with an official internal readout of the call that wrongly suggested Trump was contemplating sending troops to the border in a hostile way,” the CNN report said. This report by CNN came shortly after Jim Acosta, CNN’s White House correspondent, tweeted, “Source on Trump foreign leader calls says POTUS offered EPN the help of US troops to help get the ‘bad hombres.'”

            The White House denied that the AP report was true, but the following day said that Trump’s comments were “lighthearted,” making it unclear if he indeed threatened to send troops into Mexico.

            Reuters screws up the timing of Trump’s executive order.

            Reuters confidently reported two weeks ago: “U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to sign executive orders starting on Wednesday that include a temporary ban on most refugees and a suspension of visas for citizens of Syria and six other Middle Eastern and African countries.”

            The order from Trump, however, came that Friday. Reuters also reported Thursday that, “Yemeni officials say warships, likely American, shell al Qaeda positions.” Another Reuters reporter subsequently stated that “US officials say this is not true.”

            Bitter Much? CNN's Stelter Questions AL Talk Host's Presence at WH Presser via Skype
            By Tom Blumer | February 4, 2017 | 10:43 PM EST

            As Curtis Houck demonstrated at NewsBusters on Wednesday, the historic step of including four outside-the-DC Beltway journalists at White House press conferences via Skype is not sitting well "with many establishment media types."

            The aggrieved folks at CNN are particularly upset. :boohoo: Houck noted that the network's Dylan Byers reported, in Houck's words, that the move "upset some in the White House press corps" because it would "divert attention from what in-house reporters wanted to talk about."

            Based on Brian Stelter's reaction to Friday's Skype presence of an Alabama talk radio host, it would appear that another of their objections is that outside questioners might draw attention to what Beltway-area reporters don't want to talk about.

            Stelter appeared on Wolf Blitzer's one-hour early afternoon Eastern Time show on Friday.

            Transcript (bolds are mine throughout this post):

            WOLF BLITZER: Brian Stelter is with us as well.

            Let's talk about these press briefings themselves. Jim Acosta raised the issue -- they're a bit more produced with special guests, Skype questions, timing. What's your take?

            BRIAN STELTER: Not to be the pessimist here, but it is beneficial to have local reporters weighing in asking questions. It does, however, take away time from the journalists who are in the room, who spend every single day covering these foreign and domestic issues for the entire country. ['And takes away from our time to make stuff up regardless of what the W.H. tells us'.

            One downside of these Skype questions is that they're bringing in conservative talk radio show hosts as well. They certainly have a role to play. Conservative talk radio show hosts like Dale Jackson who asked a question from Alabama certainly have an important role to play in the media ecosystem but when you're having questions from people like that, you're not getting as many questions about important domestic and foreign policy matters. :boohoo:

            So there's just a tension here, back and forth. I think Spicer wrapped up pretty early today. He was not asked about that Bowling Green Massacre mistake by Kellyanne Conway, said that on MSNBC yesterday. She's not apologized for it and Spicer did not follow-up.

            But I agree with your guest, the importance here of establishing a baseline about the unemployment numbers and the jobs figures. The fact that this White House seems to be agreeing with the numbers and not disputing them, not trying to challenge them, is significant. The president woke up and tweeted a whole lot of things, a whole lot of wild things this morning. And there was barely any time to follow-up about that in this briefing today. Yes, it's a relatively normal day as David was saying but we're still seeing a lot of disruption on a daily basis, via the president's Twitter account.

            Stelter's viewers who don't know better will certainly believe that the question from conservative talker Dale Jackson must not have been about "important domestic and foreign policy matters" relevant to "the entire country."

            Let's go to the briefing transcript and see what Jackson's question was:


            SEAN SPICER: Let me go to the fourth Skype seat. Dale Jackson from WVNN Talk Radio in Huntsville, Alabama.

            DALE JACKSON: Sean, thank you very much for taking questions from outside the elite media bubble there in D.C. My question is about immigration. Donald Trump made this the forefront of his campaign, the foundation of it, yet the DACA and DAPA programs still exist. And I learned from a member of Congress yesterday that the Trump administration is still issuing the work permits that (inaudible) individuals.

            Question one is, when are these programs going to be ended? And question two, when will they stop issuing work permits to these individuals?


            MR. SPICER: Thanks, Dale. I think as you know, Secretary Kelly just assumed office. We are reviewing these programs. We've made it very clear that we'll have further updates on immigration referring to DACA and DAPA. The President has made significant progress on addressing the pledge that he made to the American people regarding immigration problems that we face, and I think we're going to see more action on that in the next few weeks.

            Last time I checked, Brian Stelter, immigration was an "important domestic and foreign policy matter" about which "the entire country" is concerned.

            Americans who follow the news around the country are deeply concerned about the impact of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and DAPA (Deferred Action for Parental Accountability). Arguably encouraged by DACA's existence, a combined 108,000 unaccompanied children crossed southwest border in fiscal 2014 and 2015 alone. A virtually identical number of "family unit apprehensions" also occurred during those two years.

            DACA gives unaccompanied children "a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit." DAPA involves "a three-year, renewable work permit and exemption from deportation" for "certain illegal immigrants who have lived in the United States since 2010 and have children who are either American citizens or lawful permanent residents."

            The impact? "Just under half of the nation’s unauthorized immigrant population – estimated currently at about 11 million – could have potentially benefited" from these two programs.

            Even though a Supreme Court deadlock kept in place a Circuit Court ruling blocking these programs from being implemented, Jackson's question would appear to indicate that the Obama administration and its still-in-place apparatchiks inside the Trump administration are proceeding as if the ruling doesn't exist. If that's indeed the case, the talk host's impatience with the new administration is fully justified, and Spicer's answer appearing to confirm the lack of immediate action is wholly unsatisfactory.

            The Beltway press corps inside the "elite media bubble" to which Jackson referred had eight years to ask President Obama and his press secretaries meaningful questions about illegal immigration. All too often, what we got instead were wastes of time, including a breathless inquiry about an Obama weekend father-daughter outing.

            At the same time, Stelter clearly considered whether Kellyanne Conway would "apologize" for her "Bowling Green massacre" mistake and parsing President Trump's tweets far more important matters than Jackson's apparently unimportant question on illegal immigration. If this really reflects what journalists inside the Beltway "really want to talk about," Team Trump ought to seriously consider going to an all-Skype, all-outside-the-Beltway format.

            For the record, Conway admitted her error at roughly the same time Stelter was bloviating, and the world can now go on.

                Trump Declares CNN, NYT, CBS, ABC And NBC Are "The Enemy of The American People"

                If you thought yesterday's press conference was "ranting and raving", it appears President Trump just turned the anti-'Fake news'-media amplifier up to '11', declaring CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS , The New York Times (yet not The Washington Post) as "enemies of the American people".

                Incidentally, this was the second tweet, after Trump removed the first version one, which some thought was deleted as it was just a little too "aggressive" but as it turned out, simply ommitted ABC and CBS.



                As a reminder, Trump and chief White House strategist Steve Bannon have both referred to the media as the "opposition party."
                "The mainstream media has not fired or terminated anyone associated with following our campaign," Mr. Bannon said. "Look at the Twitter feeds of those people: they were outright activists of the Clinton campaign." (He did not name specific reporters or editors.) "That's why you have no power," Mr. Bannon added. "You were humiliated."

                "You're the opposition party," Mr. Bannon said. "Not the Democratic Party. You're the opposition party. The media's the opposition party."

                  CNN’s Don Lemon Walks Off Show After Guest Accuses Him Of Reporting Fake News (VIDEO)

                  Cristina Laila Feb 18th, 2017 3:14 pm

                  CNN has come under heavy fire from many people for reporting fake news including President Trump who called CNN ‘very fake news’ at his last presser. CNN can dish it out, but they can’t take it! After bullying Trump and colluding with Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election cycle they are finally getting a dose of their own medicine.



                  Of course CNN was blathering on about the cost to keep President Trump safe and how to make it fiscally better for the American people…all of a sudden liberals want to watch pennies and be fiscally responsible. I guess we’ll just have to suspend reality for a moment to forget about the trillions of debt Obama racked up.

                  Don Lemon: “Paris, what do you think?”

                  Paris Dennard: “I think this is fake news. This is not…this is not a news story.”

                  Don Lemon: “What about it is fake, Paris? Are we going down this road again?”

                  Paris Dennard: “Yeah we are! The President is not breaking any laws.”

                  Don Lemon: “…Please stop with that stupid talking point that this is a fake news story!…”

                  Paris Dennard: ” Don this is a fake news story in my opinion….”

                  This is where Don Lemon couldn’t take it anymore, cut off his guest and walked off his show!
                  Don Lemon: “Ok, thank you very much everyone. Thanks for watching. Have a great weekend. Good night all.”

                  What’s really funny is watching Don Lemon try to lecture someone on what the definition of fake news is. Congrats to CNN for being promoted from ‘fake news’ to ‘VERY fake news’!

                    Is James O'Keefe About To Smoke CNN? Tells Hannity He's Set To Release "Hundreds of Hours" Of Newsroom Footage "Wikileaks Style"

                    by ZeroPointNow
                    Feb 21, 2017 11:39 PM


                    James O'Keefe of Project Veritas is set to unleash holy hell Thursday on #FakeNews network CNN. Well, he didn't exactly say it was CNN, but it was heavily implied. Apparently the network has a mole...

                    O'Keefe is known for undercover sting operations which have led to such bombshells as the DNC's paid agitator network, the outing of "DisruptJ20" / Antifa organizers which took place at comet ping pong - and netted three arrests (including a suspected pedophile), and most recently New Hampshire election fraud.

                    Today O'Keefe was interviewed on Sean Hannity's radio show where he revealed that a major network has been "stung"


                    O'Keefe: In the next 48 hours, Project Veritas, like Wikileaks, will be releasing hundreds of hours of tape from within the establishment media. Our next target is in fact, the media.

                    Hannity: How long have you been working on this?

                    O'Keefe: We've had people on the inside come to us. Just like Julian Assange has people come to him, we've had people, sources come to us and give us information, and we're going to be releasing it "Wikileaks Style" this week.

                    Moments later:


                    Hannity: Can you give us a hint what organizations are going to be impacted by this?

                    O'Keefe: It's one that Trump has really been talking about, you can probably use your imagination.

                    Hannity: So, it's CNN...


                    Listen here:
                    James O'Keefe reveals to Sean Hannity that a "Wikileaks Style" release of information is coming on Thursday. #FakeNews #CNN likely target. pic.twitter.com/fd0B2fcYz5
                    — ZeroPointNow (@ZeroPointNow) February 22, 2017


                    In other words, a closeted Trump supporter working deep inside hyper-liberal CNN just gave O'Keefe a ton of behind the scenes footage of "The Most Trusted Name In News." My guess is we're about to hear a bunch of establishment media puppets revealing their extreme hatred for the sitting President of the United States.

                    Remember that time CNN employees were laughing about Trump's plane crashing? If O'Keefe's release is anything along these lines, popcorn sales are about to go through the roof...
                    @CNN jokes about Trump's plane crashing during the election. Stay Classy. pic.twitter.com/e4KNcQBPAj

                      Posted on February 23, 2017 by sundance

                      This is almost too stunning for words. Seriously, not kidding.



                      In a twitter response to a person concerned about allowing adult males in the restroom facilities of women and girls, CNN host Chris Cuomo -a father of two girls himself- says the girls are the problem, and the parents are “overprotective” and “intolerant” for not wanting their 12-year-old daughter exposed to men in the restroom.




                      (Link To Tweet)

                      If this is the progressive position, the 2018 mid-term election will be a landslide to remove the remaining Democrats from all federal offices.

                      This is absurd Moonbattery.



                      CNN’s Chris Cuomo Suggests 12 Year Old Girls Are The Problem If They Don’t Want To See A Male’s Genitals In Locker Rooms

                      Cristina Laila Feb 23rd, 2017 2:31 pm 209 Comments

                      CNN’s Chris Cuomo thinks that a 12 year old little girl is the problem if she doesn’t want to be in a locker room with a male where he can expose his genitals to her. He also said that if her father had a problem with it, he is either overprotective or intolerant. There are no words for the level of degeneracy this man has sunk to. What kind of society do we have when it’s not even a priority to protect our daughters from sexual perversion?



                      Chris Cuomo received a lot of backlash for his tweet so he tried defending his position by saying that he has 2 daughters. He claims he has the same instinct to protect, however; he’s such a slave to his doxies that ‘equality’ for all eclipses logic. Equality means having your 12 year old daughters exposed to a male’s genitals at school. Unbelievable. Shame on you, Chris Cuomo.

                      i wonder if she is the problem or her overprotective and intolerant dad? teach tolerance. https://t.co/DbxAkrrH7n

                        Donald Trump Bars CNN, NYT, LAT, Politico From White House Briefing

                        by Lisa de Moraes
                        February 24, 2017 11:12am





                        Shortly after President Donald Trump vowed to “do something” about the “cunning” media who he once again called “the enemy” of the American people, CNN announced on air it had been barred from today’s White House briefing.

                        CNN reports New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Politico also were told they were not on the White House list, for today’s off-camera briefing.

                        The New York Times reported it, CNN and Politico were not allowed to enter White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s office, calling it “an usual breach of protocol.”

                        Breitbart, Fox News, Washington Times, and One America News Network were among those given entry, CNN reported.

                        Today’s off-camera gaggle is distinct from the formal on-camera White House Press Briefing, held in the White House’s official briefing room and led by Spicer, which is not scheduled to take place today. It is not unusual to forego the on-camera press briefing on days when POTUS delivers a major speech, as happened this morning at CPAC.

                        CNN reports it was told by Spicer that the briefing was intended as a much smaller pool-coverage gathering, which typically means one print reporter, one radio reporter, etc. Spicer said he decided to expand the list of invitees as he saw fit, to include conservative-leaning news organizations; Spicer told CNN the intent was not to exclude certain news orgs, the cable news outlet reported.

                        Nonetheless, the White House Correspondents Association has protested today’s move, and some organizations, including Associated Press and Time magazine, have said they are boycotting, though it’s unclear if they were on the Trump Administrations list of the Invited.

                        Shortly before news of the briefing broke, Trump promised his administration is going to “do something about” the press, telling CPAC attendees he wants to bar use of unnamed sources.

                        “They shouldn’t be allowed to use sources unless they use somebody’s name,’ Trump told an enthusiastic crowd of conservatives at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference gathering outside Washington, D.C.

                        In attacking the press, Trump was making good on a pledge made at CPAC one day earlier by his chief strategist Steve Bannon, who had promised the relationship between Trump and the media is “not only not going to get better, it’s going to get worse — every day.”

                        “[The press] are corporatist globalist media that are adamantly opposed to a economic nationalist agenda like Donald Trump has,” the former Breitbart chief said, and Trump parroted one day later.

                        “He’s going to continue to press his agenda. And, as economic conditions get better, as more jobs get better, they’re going to continue to fight,” said Bannon, referring to the media as “The Opposition Party.”

                        More to come…

                          Three CNN Employees Resign Over Retracted Story on Russia Ties

                          “CNN has accepted the resignation of the employees involved in the story’s publication,” a network spokesperson says

                          Three CNN employees have handed in their resignations over a retracted story linking President Trump to Russia, the network announced Monday.

                          Thomas Frank, who wrote the story in question; Eric Lichtblau, an editor in the unit; and Lex Haris, who oversaw the unit, have all left CNN.

                          “In the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on CNN.com, CNN has accepted the resignation of the employees involved in the story’s publication,” a network spokesperson said in a statement Monday.

                          On Thursday, CNN investigative reporter Thomas Frank published a report involving an investigation of a Russian investment fund with possible ties to several Trump associates.

                          According to CNN, an internal investigation found that “some standard editorial processes were not followed when the article was published.”

                          Citing a single unnamed source, the story reported that Congress was investigating a “Russian investment fund with ties to Trump officials.”

                          CNN explained Monday that “these types of stories” usually would go through several departments, including fact-checkers, journalism standards experts and lawyers.

                          But the network says there was a “breakdown in editorial workflow” which “disturbed the CNN executives who learned about it.”

                          The network’s investigative unit was told during a meeting on Monday that the retraction did not necessarily mean the facts of the story were wrong. But, rather, “the story wasn’t solid enough to publish as-is,” according to one of the people briefed on the investigation.

                          The story, which only appeared on the network’s site, was quickly disputed on Friday, as one of the people mentioned in the story — Trump ally Anthony Scaramucci — took issue with Frank’s reporting, insisting he “did nothing wrong.”

                          “Once it was determined that editorial processes were not followed, CNN deleted the story from CNN.com,” the network said Friday on its site. “Soon thereafter, the story was officially retracted and replaced with an editor’s note.”

                          The piece “did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted,” the note said. “Links to the story have been disabled.”

                          The editor’s note also added an apology to Scaramucci.

                          “CNN did the right thing. Classy move. Apology accepted,” Scaramucci tweeted the next morning. “Everyone makes mistakes. Moving on.”

                          Haris, Lichtblau and Frank had solid reputations among their colleagues.

                          Frank worked as reporter for USA Today and Newsday before joining CNN. Lichtblau is a former New York Times Pulitzer-Prize winning reporter. And Haris was the executive editor of CNN Investigates.

                          “On Friday, CNN retracted a story published by my team. As Executive Editor of that team, I have resigned,” Haris said in a statement. “I’ve been with CNN since 2001, and am sure about one thing: This is a news organization that prizes accuracy and fairness above all else. I am leaving, but will carry those principles wherever I go.”

                          Still wondering why this particular fake story, among so many, became radioactive enough to warrant a full retraction & now firing people.
