Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, October 17, 2016

Over the course of the 2016 election, CNN hired four Trump supporters -- Kayleigh McEnany, Scottie Nell Hughes, Jeffrey Lord, and Corey Lewandowski -- to act as full-time Trump surrogates and defend their candidate on-air. CNN has defended its hirings by suggesting that surrogates like Lewandowski are needed to provide "balance," especially after several of CNN's traditional Republican commentators expressed their opposition to the GOP presidential nominee.
This isn't entirely the fault of the professional Trump surrogates. CNN pays them to be Trump apologists; their jobs depend on them defending their candidate regardless of how ridiculous it makes them sound. In other words, the network incentivizes them to be intractable.

CNN also tells us that its illegal for average citizens to look at the Wikileaks DNC emails, but they can because they are a "media organization"...


Praise be unto him..

Every time Hillary gets blasted by WikiLeaks we get on of these stories.

Of course CNN is covering their but by having surrogates from both sides because they are propagandists who seek credibility from the less thinking citizens.

This does not by any means mean they have not spent more time on Trump's personal conversations as they have Hillary's FOIA emails she deleted. Or the classified emails, lap tops, cell phones she destroyed.

One of these things is illegal.

Guess which one.

I'd say child molesting or war crimes but you Trumpeters would be offended.

Gather my children and I will impart wisdom to your growing young minds.

It is not enough to satisfy ones appetite through self deception.

It leaves you empty and too weak and stupid to look for better nutrition.

Your welcome...

All 4 of them are whirling dervishes - spinning clowns who can't be taken seriously.

I won't watch CNN when they're on.
