CNN must’ve hated Monday even more than Garfield the cat does. The “news” network’s reputation, already covered with more mud than a Louisiana pickup truck, took several more hits on Monday.

First, newly-fired anchor Chris Cuomo threw CNN boss Jeff Zucker under the bus, claiming that Zucker was fully aware from the start of all the “help” Cuomo gave his brother Andrew. CNN issued a statement that Cuomo had made “a number of accusations that are patently false,”and “This reinforces why he was terminated for violating our standards and practices, as well as his lack of candor.”

Also, Chris Cuomo is reportedly preparing to sue CNN for the $18-$20 million remaining on his contract. A CNN insider said they have no intention of paying him, that there’s a standard morals clause in the contract allowing for immediate firing if you do anything of disrepute, and there would be an uproar if the network paid him a settlement.

Frankly, if you can’t fire someone for doing what Cuomo did, then what can you ever fire anyone for? Oh, and in a related story, Cuomo announced that he will also no longer be doing his SiriusXM Radio show, “Let’s Get After It with Chris Cuomo.”

Meanwhile, the farcical trial of actor Jussie Smollett also produced an unexpected mudball aimed at CNN.

Smollett claimed in testimony that the reason he didn’t want to turn his cell phone over to Chicago Police was that CNN anchor Don Lemon texted him that the cops didn’t believe his story. So once again, a claim that a CNN anchor was abusing his inside journalist contacts to secretly help someone the network was covering.

If that doesn’t remind you enough of Chris Cuomo, recall that the openly gay Lemon is already facing a lawsuit by a man who accused him of sexual assault and battery in a Long Island bar. The accuser called CNN “a network rife with predators and perverts,” and “a predator-protecting machine.” He said they have tried to buy him off and scare him off, but he’s looking forward to forcing Lemon to testify under oath because he wants some accountability. He said, “They are complicit. This is who they are.”

And will Lemon face any repercussions from CNN? Many are skeptical…

All this had even some CNN staffers fretting on-air that all this negative news might damage CNN’s credibility and undermine the public’s trust in CNN.

Noooo!! Say it ain’t so! The network that spent four years breathlessly pushing the Russian collusion hoax, that told us Nick Sandmann was a racist who confronted a Native American and Kyle Rittenhouse was a murderer, and that claimed Joe Rogan treated his COVID with horse medicine might have lost the public’s trust?!

Hey, CNN, I finally have some much-needed good news for you. You can’t lose what you didn’t have in the first place.

    Amen to your recent comments about the "CNN Smollett, Lemon,Cuomo debacle".Seems the tragic lack of integrity at any level would be obvious to anyone in the public but only if you know the fundamental difference between a lie and the truth.

    CNN or, as I "fondly" refer to them, the Clinton News Network, rightly deserve to be shut down. After all, their history of histrionics regarding conservative subjects is well known. Personally, as far as Cuomo and Lemon are concerned, my reaction is to laugh (LOL). IT does good to see the Liberals confronted with their basic lies.

  • Bob Zoerner

    This just reinforces my thoughts on CNN. They are so one sided and report positively on the left and always quick to report (fabricate) exactly what they want their viewers to see. For me, they lost their credibility years ago.

    When I think back to the time when there was Sam Donaldson and Edward R. Murrow and Chet Brinkley on TV giving us the news it seems like a lifetime ago, and actually it was! How could one profession slide so far downhill? Actually many other professions have slid along side of them, namely media, entertainment, professional sports, the Christian church (I'm Catholic, so I speak with authority), and big business. It seems that the only place we find real honesty and integrity are with the little people. The mom & pop cafe, the one owner boutique, local pastors, and little league coaches. If you've ever read THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS by C S Lewis you saw that the devil never gave up. He tries every trick. Fame brings it's own reward (curse) and many, many people give in to to the devil without knowing it. They get blinded by fame, money, and power. They think it's happiness.

    Hey Gov,
    Since CNN only has a following of a couple dozen, I doubt that this will impact their credibility.

News To Go

Important Health Alert

The CDC reports that the over-the-counter, preservative-free eye drops EzriCare Artificial Tears may be linked to a potentially deadly bacterial eye infection. If you use eye drops, read the details at the link and stop using these particular drops until further notice from the CDC.

Breaking News

As we were preparing to send the newsletter this morning, word came that the FBI this morning conducted a search of President Biden’s Delaware beach house for classified documents. Naturally, without TV cameras, rifles or helicopters. I hope they remembered to check the vegetable drawer of his fridge.

“Biden’s Border Crisis, Part One”

The House Judiciary Committee is set to hold its first hearing today on the record-breaking illegal immigration crisis at our Southern border. The hearing is called “Biden’s Border Crisis, Part One,” so apparently they didn’t get the message from the White House that this is all the Republicans’ fault for preventing Biden from fixing it.
