Is CNN Now Producing Campaign Videos for the Democrats?

For all intents and purposes, CNN is now producing campaign videos for the Democrat Party. Someone schooled on campaign finance laws might be able to make a case that this amounts to an in-kind contribution the Democrats, seeing cost of production and the airtime CNN gave them for free and all.

“Trump shocks with racist new ad days before midterms” shouts the title of the CNN video that was run numerous times yesterday. Obviously pointed at the casual young Low-Info viewer, done with a black female voice-over with popular millennial voice fry. The video itself can’t be embedded but can be seen here, and the original Trump ad referred to in the vid can be seen here. This from the CNN video:
"The new web video, tweeted by the President five days before the midterm elections, is the most extreme step yet in the most inflammatory closing argument of any campaign in recent memory. 
The Trump campaign ad is the latest example of the President’s willingness to lie and fear-monger in order to tear at racial and societal divides; to embrace demagoguery to bolster his own political power and the cause of the Republican midterm campaign. The web video — produced for the Trump campaign — features Luis Bracamontes, a Mexican man who had previously been deported but returned to the United States and was convicted in February in the slaying of two California deputies. 
The ad recalls the notorious “Willie Horton” campaign ad financed by supporters of the George H.W. Bush campaign in the 1988 presidential election. Horton was a convicted murderer who committed rape while furloughed under a program in Massachusetts....."
Who is it that’s lying here, CNN? By what measure does the new ad featuring Bracamontes “recall” the “notorious” Willie Horton ad? It’s CNN that’s recalling the Horton ad by bringing it up to tie the two together. The media playbook on this is pretty clear: Any suggestion from a Republican that unfettered immigration could be a problem is racist by definition, because all immigrants are non-Americans by definition, and as such it really means Republicans want you to hate all foreigners.

And if the suggestion involves violent crime by a non-American, that’s the epitome of racism and “dividing us” because to suggest any non-white person could be a violent murdering criminal – even one who actually is a violent murdering criminal – is the same thing as implying this about all non-white persons. Lost in all this, of course, is the fact that because immigration laws were not enforced, a police officer lost his life. That would seem to be more important than anything else being talked about here, but it’s not, because . . . this is CNN.

MSNBC Joins CNN: Beaten in the Ratings by a Wet Sponge

Squinty and Meat Puppet are Devastated 

Gloom, Despair and Agony on Me they're mumbling in cable news land. According to the latest Nielsen Media Research, MSNBC and CNN failed in the ratings to even beat home improvement shows and children’s cartoons.
DC - According to Nielsen, Fox New Network marked its 26th consecutive week as the top network in total day viewers. Competitors MSNBC and CNN both struggled to match Fox’s dominance, falling to third and 16th in primetime, respectively. 
CNN had a horrible week, managing just 669,000 primetime viewers and losing to the following networks: HGTV, USA, Food Network, TLC, Hallmark, and more. MSNBC fared much better in primetime, finishing third behind HGTV. 
HGTV and Nickelodeon — home of Spongebob Squarepants — wiped the floor with CNN and MSNBC in total day viewership. Nickelodeon finished second in total day with 914,000 viewers while HGTV finished third with 814,000. MSNBC trailed behind in fourth place with 763,000, while CNN tied for 9th with the Food Network at 535,000 viewers.
There is not much hope for the one trick pony CNN. But MSNBC, well maybe more Al Sharpton and Joy Reid would help. Yeah, That's the ticket!

The Meme Police

This is very news organization has been reporting this week about how states are refusing to turn over voter data to the administration over privacy concerns, while tracking down a private citizen and threatening to publish his personal information if he doesn’t stay on the straight and narrow. In a week when we celebrate freedom, it’s a good reminder that threats to our liberties don’t come solely from government.

....and it looks like the incorrigibles at 4chan are Going After CNN
