ELDER PATRIOT – Fox’s Neil Cavuto added insult to injury for CNN during his commentary yesterday:
Remember when Barack Obama singled out Fox News for daring to present a Fair and Balanced assessment of his presidency? Obama even ordered his justice department to investigate Fox’s James Rosen in an attempt to discredit him.
There was also a report released by Judicial Watch, “that it has uncovered documents from the Obama Department of Treasury showing that the Obama administration, contrary to its repeated denials, attempted to exclude the Fox News Channel (FNC) from a round of interviews with Treasury’s “Executive Pay Czar” Kenneth Feinberg. The documents, which include email exchanges within the Department of the Treasury and between Treasury and White House staff, also provide colorful evidence of an anti-Fox News bias within the Obama White House.”
So when Cavuto took a swipe at CNN he knew whereof he spoke:
“It didn’t matter so much when it wasn’t about you before, CNN. Very different now that it’s you being singled out, CNN. Doesn’t seem very fair now, does it? The shabby treatment of your reporters not very nice now is it? That’s life, I guess, not fair, not balanced. Now you’re experiencing what we have been living. Now you’re the ones royally foxed.”
“Isn’t it obnoxious and unfair how some celebrate your plight? Kind of feels like the way you celebrated ours doesn’t it? They say payback is a bitch. If only you take a moment to rewind the tape and see the shoe is on the other foot. Or am I confusing it with the one kicking you in the ass? You see it’s hard to tell from where I sit. Back then your silence was deafening. Very different now, isn’t it?”
Writing this is so satisfying that I’m going to take a turn kicking CNN while it’s down, too. CNN, you are guilty of violating every tenet of journalistic integrity. You ran a scurrilous claim that the president-elect engaged in perverted sexual activities without checking the veracity of it and then you complain when the president-elect (a married man with a family including a young boy) won’t take your question, you really believe you’re above reproach don’t you? Hell, you think you’re above even common decency.
When James Rosen was shut out by Obama it was because he asked the serious questions about policy that you wouldn’t.
CNN, your brand of unbalanced journalistic malpractice is the reason you’re the lowest rated cable news network by far getting lapped three times by Fox News.
Just a suggestion, CNN, start presenting the views of “We the People” occasionally instead of peddling the propaganda of the global elites 24 hours every day.
