Brave CNN talking head admits on Avenatti, ‘‘I feel kind of snookered because I took him seriously’
American Thinker ^ | 2/16/2020 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 02/16/2020 10:54:29 AM PST by RightGeek

So far, only one prominent MSM television pundit has passed the test of basic integrity that the guilty verdict against Michael Avenatti poses for his former fanboys and fangirls on CNN, MSNBC, and the alphabet networks. Jeffrey Toobin, CNN’s legal analyst, admitted to Anderson Cooper, who uttered not a peep of his own personal regret. The entire five and a half minute interview and transcript are embedded below, but go to 3 minutes and 46 seconds to see Toobin admit, “And frankly, you know, I feel kind of snookered, because I took him seriously,’ followed shortly thereafter by Cooper seeming to defend the coverage, stating,

“Well, I mean he was -- I mean, prior to even this Stormy Daniels story, he had won a large judgment in a class action lawsuit, I think it was, in California.”

...

The Washington Free Beacon has a delightful compilation of MSM fools making idiots of themselves with fulsome praise of the felonious fraud:

Unfortunately missing from this admirable selection is purported conservative Ana Navarro toying with blasphemy as well as idiocy, comparing Avenatti to the Holy Spirit.

Solution is “i over e” - intellect over emotion. Dearly missing from the lame-stream media.

Isn’t there a difference between taking someone seriously and humping their leg?

These people wanted to have his children.

Are these the same MSM legal analysts who are calling for Barr’s Impeachment/resignation? Tells a lot about their cognitive powers

You cannot accuse Avenati of committing fraud on these leftist shills because it is not fraud if the marks have the information or means to detect the fraud. They were willing dupes. We all knew he was a dodgy character.

Maybe they should all watch Tucker Carlson. Tucker pegged him, and nicknamed him CPL.

Whoa. This is a good sign. Ana stumbled onto some truth, there. Or, I should say, Truth. The Holy Spirit is indeed everywhere. In Him we live and move and have our being.

That goes for Ana and Avennati as well. If they would just sit still quietly for a moment and contemplate that, they might cease choosing so poorly.

'Course, that goes for all of us. The Holy Spirit is constantly praying to The Father through Jesus on our behalf to help us choose wisely.

If they had an ounce of shame ..they would give the bulk of their way over sized pay to charity.

Brian ‘Tater Head’ Stelter was in love with Avenatti.

Sadly, considering all the Democrat candidates, if he were running he might be their best.

If only he had stayed in the race, nobody could have investigated him.

He would still be a free man like Biden.

Had a good chuckle reading the article about CNN. Looks like CNN is turning into Comedy News Network.
