In CNN We Trust ?
by Ron Spangler
While we were watching today's memorial events paying tribute to the fallen heroes and victims of Sept 11,2001, CNN interrupted with a completely bogus news alert. In their zeal to be the 1st with reporting breaking news they managed to create a national scare involving police, FBI, and the FAA.
If you listen to the audio that the CNN reporters were listening to it should have been clear this could not be real. In the audio conversation you can hear one of the Coast Guard simulating shots being fired by saying "bang, bang, bang." Remember when kids played cops and robbers or for older people cowboys and Indians? Our guns were our voices shouting bang, bang, bang I got you.
CNN is blaming the Coast Guard and President Obama supporters have supported CNN all day. However this evening after Homeland Security Director Napolitano called for an investigation of the Coast Guard's actions, Fox News reported a White House spokesman said the White House stands behind the Coast Guard.
Does this mean President Obama has thrown CNN under the bus with all of his other one time supporters?
Meanwhile CNN is spinning the ACORN scandal for all its worth. After refusing to air anything on the Baltimore employees trying to help cover up a would be child prostitute business that was fortunately a scam, they finally covered it by reminding everyone that the 'under cover reporter' was another conservative activist that had his own agenda to air.
Later on after Fox News released a second tape this time in Washington D. C. Wolf Blitzer had the same CNN reporter on spinning the story again. At the end of the spin she reported the D. C. tape and informed the public that the employees had been fired.
So now the "Most Trusted Name In News" blames the Coast Guard for not telling CNN they are going to do their job and practice what they will do in case a suspicious boat refuses to follow the orders of the Coast Guard. They also blame the conservative activist for ACORN employees being willing to participate in child prostitution by not reporting the pimp and prostitute to the police.
At the end of Wolf Blitzer's reporting one of the reporters had advice for today's politicians and associations like ACORN. Paraphrase, 'In today's internet environment with everyone having a camera and Youtube, if you are with someone outside or inside that you don't know, be very careful what you say.'
Good advice CNN, we really must protect the crooked politicians, pimps, and child prostitution rings from those bad conservatives with a hidden agenda.
The Most Trusted Name In News, Really ?
