Posted on 09/03/2018 11:13:15 AM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
CNN swept aside journalistic ethics on Sunday by endorsing a blacklisting campaign with a glowing interview of Matt Rivitz, the founder of Sleeping Giants, a failed effort to censor Breitbart News by harassing and intimidating companies whose advertisements may (or may not) have appeared on the website.
The interview took place on Reliable Sources, a Sunday morning show that once focused on analyzing the media, but which in recent years has been turned into the editorial mouthpiece of CNN president Jeff Zucker, voiced through host Brian Stelter.
Sundays program was helmed by substitute anchor John Avlon, in for Stelter who had earlier used his vacation to dodge questions about CNNs failure to retract a false story about President Donald Trumps former lawyer, Michael Cohen.
Ironically, Avlon and Reliable Sources addressed the Cohen story without acknowledging that CNN had lied about the fact that Lanny Davis had been one of its sources. Avlons panel slammed Davis for backtracking on his version of events, then quickly shifted to talking about threats made against the Boston Globe.
Nor did CNN mention the fact that last week, a Mexican cartel boss was arrested two days after putting a $100,000 hit on a Breitbart News reporter a story that, had it happened to a CNN reporter, would no doubt have been the lead, not just on CNN, but on every mainstream media outlet in the country.

I sent a breitbart link to a friend the other day.
Her virus control system reported it as having a virus.
CNN is a clear and present danger to America.
They are a domestic enemy.
It is long overdue to get the FCC working on the MSM relative to the DELIBERATE TRANSMISSION of lies, distortions and misleading information. It is illegal. Food for thought.
Big tech and big media are trying to take away our voice. They think that only they should control the national conversation, while they hide behind the first amendment. The first doesn’t give them any such control.
So, when Senator Joseph McCarthy created a list of people who were communist sympathizers which was dubbed, “the black list” insofar as it was meant to deny them employment, that was wrong, but when CNN does it, it is righteous?
The media still decries McCarthyism a century later but they deny exposure to conservative ideas across all the platforms they control; CNN, Fakebook, Twitter, ABC, NBC, most universities... they call traditionalist ideas subversive and would suppress them by any means including violence.
I think we need a timestax ping here.
To the people, Senator Joseph McCarthy was a hero, and a great statesman.
CNN is low grade Charmin.
Only way for CNN to regain any ground is to black list all the others.
CNN is toast. The man behind the curtain has been exposed.
The left is full of petulant, selfish, immature little children who just HAVE to have their way. Worse, they have none of the innocence of youth - but are instead driven by hatred. They are throwing away liberty and freedom ‘for all’, in favor of coercing everyone to acknowledge and accept that they and their way of life are superior to all others. They are the closest embodiments of Stalin and Hitler our society has ever produced.
Her “virus control system” was mistaken if you are talking about content on breitbart.com and not elsewhere.
