CNN Mocks Million Vet March as Tea Party Crazies
Breitbart ^ | 10/13/2013 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 10/13/2013 2:23:55 PM PDT by Mozilla

CNN.com covered Sunday’s “Million Vet March” in Washington D.C. against the Obama administration’s closure of military memorials by castigating the marchers as Tea Party kooks and fringe crazies. “At tea party-like rally, Obama told to ‘put the Quran down,’” the headline read. CNN derided the size of the crowd:

--snip--

CNN focused on one speaker, Larry Klayman, whom it quoted as stating, “I call upon all of you to wage a second American nonviolent revolution, to use civil disobedience, and to demand that this president leave town, to get up, to put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come out with his hands up.”

CNN then tried to lump in former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in with Klayman...

Nothing on Faux. Nothing on ABCDisney. Nothing on SeeBS. Nothing on MSNBO.

Only NBO and O-CNN carried any reports.

Even Matt “the Hat” Drudge was slobbering over a Tom Hanks lie-fest rather than cover this event.

We all should get all of the enemedia’s Veteran-insulting vomit while we can and keep it visible on YouTube and other areas.
Keep it all on record. Show them as the lapdogs that they are.

Don’t say that too loud, if you have seen their favorite news anchor, he might just take you up on that!

Gay CNN Anchor Gives Viewers Tour of Gay Bar, Gets Live Shot of Gay ‘Kiss-Out’

By Matt Hadro | June 26, 2013 | 14:57
   
Openly-gay CNN anchor Don Lemon treated his viewers to live coverage of a gay “kiss-out” and gave them a tour of “iconic” gay bar Stonewall Inn in New York City, on Wednesday.

“If you haven’t been to a gay bar, you’re about to go to one,” Lemon told CNN’s audience, during coverage of the reactions to Wednesday’s Supreme Court rulings. “I’m standing in front of the birthplace of the modern gay rights movement.” He gestured toward two men making out in front of the bar, noting “Right now, they’re holding a kiss-out in front.” [Video below the break.

CNN only wants to protect Obama, not respect the veterans who gave so much for this country and deserve our utmost respect for their courage and honor.

There are no journalists at CNN.

A Million Vet March with a cast of thousands invites ridicule. Why not call it something else?

CNN is telling their viewers that their grandparents are "crazy."

Either that, or they are appealing to non-citizens or recent immigrants, not the natural-born Americans.

There are some good reporters out there but few of them have national exposure.

Detroit Journalist Charlie LeDuff had this to say about local reporters who have looked the other way Kwame Kilpatrick destroyed what was left of Detroit.

Beware of the fangless lapdog media who believe these wolves are actually sheep. Those reporters and editors and publishers who want a chair at the banquet table and the cocktail party. These "journalists" trumpet turnaround. They write clever, superficial things. They give endorsements on their opinion pages without having had the courage to vet their anointed one.

He's got a libertarian bent but I suspect he feels the same way about the national media.

The Tea Party stands for the United States Constitution and less government. Isn’t it amazing even people like Karl Rove, Britt Hume, Bill O and most of the United States House criticize or demean the Tea Party....can so many be against the U.S. Constitution? Senators Cruz, Paul, and some other junior congressmen and senators understand this and are trying mighty hard to fix it. Help those who stand for our Constitution....those who aren’t are most of the problem we see in Washington today.

“CNN only wants to protect Obama, not respect the veterans who gave so much for this country”

Veterans don’t buy 10’s of millions of dollars in taxpayer-funded Obamacare propaganda ds, and huge amounts of Dem Campaign and issue ads.

Larry Klayman spoke the truth. He's a good man, with service in President Reagan's DOJ and founded Judicial Watch.

Really stinks that even Fox News won’t do anything on the March. I do know the people involved with the Truckers stopped coming on because they didn’t like national press reports so are refusing to do media. Plus they are busy with the protests. They joined the March today.

Funny how CNN etal can say the TEA Party is nothing but an isolated group of ‘radicals’ THEN have the wherewithal to say the 1M Vet march is full of TEA Partiers?

Typical of LIB Double Speak....

That is why they consider such statements as:
I was against the war before I was for it ... etc...
It depends what the meaning of is is.
I have visited 57 states....
That 3 letter word J O B S.....
As being entirely OK...

They all must have went to the Yogi Berra ‘school of double talk’.

Gee, I wonder why FoxNews spanks the back-side of CNN in ratings for years on end.

Perhaps the brain-trusts at CNN will figure it out one day. Doubt it. It will take at least one triple digit IQ for that to happen...

And I can only imagine how spectacularly a truly Conservative television network would perform. Fox continues to veer left with homosexuals, abortionists, feminists and a Scientologist in very visible positions. Until and unless Free Republic moves to a television platform, that medium remains in the enemy camp.

@Zhang,

I agree, this “MILLION THIS AND MILLION THAT” is really quite boring any more.

They should have boosted the occupy people’s stuff.

Can you imagine the confusion?

OCCUPY THE MEMORIAL!

The bureauKaRATZ goons might have thought it was their group and left it alone. The doofuses at CNN would have thought it was their group and left it alone.

Folks, if you wannabe a street fighter, you have GOT to be creative.

Learned that early on by being on the receiving end of Fast Eddie’s goon squad.

Union Thugs, what WONDERFUL, LOVELY people!

Indeed, why not? Somehow, so many organizers of these events are hung up on the full or partial alliteration, i.e., "Million Man March" and the like.

It does invite ridicule and they're stupid to not see that.

When I hear of the OWS crowd, I am reminded of a picture from then of them in a bank lobby- with the bank’s permission. They were in a circle, feverishly discussing some BS like they actually mattered. I laughed at them.

A couple of years ago when over a million protesters did shut down Washington, they ignored it just as much.

It doesn't matter what we call it. They will still ignore it until it really starts threatening their privileged rice bowls. Then they will scream bloody murder and call it a threat to democracy!

AMEN! Fox News seems to do just enough to fool a lot of Conservatives into thinking they are on their side, when they employ and support many repugnant people, and they run the same celebrity sleaze and gossip as news that CNN, MSNBC, etc. run.

Not surprising given who runs Fox News.
