    What is CNN up to?

    This new story on CNN is bizarre. Instead of fake news, it is now engaged in creating news. One that is speculating on the assassination of President elect Trump and Pence. Why is CNN still in business? Where are the FCC and the FBI and the board of directors of CNN? Are they insane?

    Jack:  I was on CNN's website this morning and saw nothing about what you are claiming.  Please post the link where you got this information.

      Kind of lazy in your old age? I know you have a hard time finding the truth about things but try a Google or YouTube search.

      Jack:  I watched that yesterday.  It was not about assassinating Trump.  It was about the line of succession if any president elect was taken out before he actually becomes president.   Here is the actual feed.

      I actually watched the segment last night peoplepower and can assure you that Wolf Blitzer played out the scenario. He should be hauled in and question by Secret Service. Can you imagine if they did that to the left's messiah Obama? Mike would flip..

    I know jack! PP you haven't learned how to do a  google search yet? Better learn before CNN and the rest are a thing of the past. If you can't find it here it is, don't say I never did anything for you:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxIG4dduqy0

    The Daily Caller said it best

    "These guys are in mourning, and they’re desperate for any glimmer of hope that they can cling to the power they crave above all else.

    They couldn’t get out the vote on Nov. 8. They couldn’t coerce the electors to overturn the results.

    They couldn’t convince America that this is happening because of the Russians, or fake news, or Comey, or whatever.

    They have failed, in every way it’s possible to fail, and they know it.

    So why not openly fantasize about the incoming administration being killed en masse?

    It’s all they’ve got left."

    But what wouldn't you expect from CNN, the creator and foremost propagator of fake news stories?

    Gerald Celente says the main stream media is on the way out. Mr. Celente in an interview with USAWatchdog.com says the mainstream media (MSM) went all in for Hillary Clinton with actions associated with propaganda and not news. What’s going to happen to the MSM in 2017? Celente, who is Publisher of The Trends Journal, says, “It’s gone, and that is the top story coming out in the next Trends Journal too. . . . We are forecasting that this is the end of daily newspapers. They’ll go down to a couple of days a week. The flipside is more people to USAWatchdog.com and other media. We are not alternative media. They are the alternative media. They are the media that only promotes the establishment. The establishment is Hollywood to the White House to the media, and the people are disgusted with it. This is bigger than a populist movement.”

    The MSM is now so discredited that it is beyond the point of no return. Celente goes on to say, “I was saying up until recently about the mainstream media that they still have the clout to set the tone. Now, they don’t. Look at how many newspapers supported Hillary Clinton in editorials, all of the major papers, and it didn’t amount to anything. The facts are there, and again look at the numbers. The bottom line is they are falling out of profitability, and they can’t sustain themselves. That’s the bottom line. News Corp., and one after another, its business is 20% down. You can’t keep a business going like that.”

    I hope he is right, the daily newspaper dies in 2017, he has been right on so many predictions.

      Jack:  The link didn't work.  Just go to CNN and search for Wolf Blitzer.  You will see the entire broadcast.  It is quite interesting and DTMB.  Shut up, I'm never too old to dig out the truth.

      I saw the befogging and beginning of Network News going bad when they sent into everyone's home pictures of the Vietnam conflict(war).My dad said learned writing teaches us about war. Obscene photos teach us about the photographer. War is hell

      PP You're just mad because this isn't your Q&A and you can't delete me like you do when I destroy your rants on your hub pages.

      funny for someone that always demands that I provide links... He never lives up to his own double standards, but what can I say, I do look forward to challenging his narrative on here.

    This is a very good question as the comments so far show just plain old nastiness. Interesting that these gentlemen carry over personal grudges rather than really addressing the issue -- reflective of folks who probably watch the cable and network news a whole lot.
    I watch CNN and Fox simultaneously most mornings for about 15 minutes at the gym during the cardio part of my work out. Sound off with captions and the ticker at the bottom.
    It seems to me that there are four types of watchers. 1. The clear minority(based of ratings) who believe it. 2. Those who just get immediately angry at it.(watching like a car wreck on the side of the road) 3. Those that get angry because they think other people buy this crap. 4. Those who just do not in any way take it seriously because it is not and never will be again -- News.
    I was checking out at the grocery store this pm after I had seen CNN at the gym. I looked at the enquirer and their stories actually looked more plausible than CNN's.
    Freedom of speech and press. Now mean "whatever sells". For those who defend this Blitzer BS you have to look no further than at the word "assassination" to know that CNN was not just talking about who follows who in succession. Because if they did mean that they would have said "what happens if DT has a heart attack".

      Isn't interesting how two people can watch exactly the same "news" and their perception of the exact same broadcast can be entirely different...go figure.  It's kind of like Trump, what you see and hear is what you want to see and hear.

      Mike you are so right. You can even take that a step further -- same person different mood - different perception. If they changed election day to Saturday or Sunday would it change the votes? Silly question, but it makes you think.
