At least “the day the music died” got a song written about it. The day of Journalism’s death didn’t get a lousy Obit.
When did it happen? And how did it die? This pic has the answers. Read on for proof.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo straight up admits it.
Witness CNN’s Chris Cuomo, the man who called Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort a liar and debated Rudy Giuliani for 32 break-less minutes on the ridiculous liberal interpretation of Trump’s Second Amendment statement, wax eloquent during a 2014 segment during which he and another host were discussing Clinton’s potential entry into the race.
“It’s a problem because she’s doing what they call in politics “freezing pockets,” because the donors are giving her money thinking she’s going to run, that means they’re not going to have available money for other candidates if she doesn’t.” Cuomo said. “And I don’t think she’s going to give it to them. We couldn’t help her any more than we have, she’s got just a free ride so far from the media, we’re the biggest ones promoting her campaign, so it had better happen.

Here’s an open letter to the ass-kissing media:
An Open Letter to The Ass-Kissing Media
June 16, 2015
To Whom it May Concern:
Let me start off by saying, you’re not all bad. There are good people in every profession just like there’s corruption in every profession. I’m talking about the media that puts the Clintons on a pedestal and makes Senator Marco Rubio look like Miami’s #1 gangster. Yeah, I’m talking about you. How’s the view from there? Ya know, from Hillary’s ass? Because that’s where you’re all living right now. Picking stories that will be favorable with the ~youth~ or the ~elite~ instead of reporting the newsworthy stories. That’s not doing your job, and this is not a popularity contest. Did you sit with the cool kids at lunch?
Yes, I know the media tends to have a liberal bias. That’s been established. However, the major newspapers and publications in this early election season already has Hillary hand picked out as America’s favorite. No, this doesn’t come as a big shock to me, but how about giving the other candidates a chance? Or was that not specified in your contract with the Clinton Foundation? *cough* New York Times *cough*
The truth might hurt but it’s time we put our big girl panties on and do our jobs. Give Benghazi and the Clinton Foundation’s donors the coverage it deserves. These are big freakin’ deals that need to be discussed. The fact that Marco Rubio has some speeding tickets? Not earth shattering journalism, honey. Even Barry paid off his parking tickets just weeks before he launched his campaign, awk. How about how Marco Rubio owns a boat? I don’t think the voters really care. Or let’s try how the Clinton Foundation welcomes foreign countries, who severely lack in human rights, as donors? Yeah, this is kind of a big deal. Especially since Hillary claims to be for the women, and these countries treat women as animals. Yup, big deal. How about you spam my Facebook newsfeed with that.
Another thing that irks me to my core, is when you are too proud to admit your mistakes. When you get the chance to take a stab at a Republican candidate, which you will, they’re humans and make mistakes too, make sure you report correctly. If you don’t, you’ll look like an asshole, and you don’t want that. Earlier this week, the Weekly Standard, posted an article along with a tweet from their staff writer about how Carly Fiorina’s campaign attacked Hillary Clinton’s new Instagram account. Little did they know, the statement came from Carly’s Super PAC rather than Carly’s campaign. This makes a big difference since campaign laws strictly prohibit a candidate and their campaign staff from speaking to/coordinating with a Super PAC. Therefore, statements made by a PAC could be very different from what a candidate thinks or says.
The staff writer later corrected the article and followed up with a tweet that said “if the distinction matters to you…” UM, EXCUSE ME?! Since when did we brush off the difference between a lie and the truth? Once again, put on your big girl panties and own up to your mistake.
I know all of this will continue and that the mainstream media will continue to favor Washington’s golden girl, Hillary Clinton… I just pray that someone will take the step forward towards unbiased journalism. When we do this, we will allow the voters to make an informed decision. Besides, I think the history books will care more about Benghazi rather than Marco Rubio’s boat. Just sayin’
