#CNN Analyst: ‘Right-Wing Extremists’ Could Be Behind #BostonMarathon Bombing

April 15, 2013


Less than two hours after the horrific bombing at the Boston Marathon, CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen was already speculating that “right-wing extremists” could be behind the attack. He told CNN anchor Jake Tapper:

I’m reminded of Oklahoma City, which was a bombing, which was initially treated as a gas explosion. First reports are often erroneous.

Then Bergen went on to offer up this “first” report:

Once the device — if it a device — is found; what kind of explosives were used. So for instance, if it was hydrogen peroxide, this is a signature of al Qaeda. If it was more conventional explosives, which are much harder to get hold of now — that might be some other kind of right-wing extremist. … We’ve also seen, for instance, right-wing groups  trying to attack the Martin Luther King parade in Oregon in 2010.

So Bergen starts off with comparing what happened at the Boston Marathon to Oklahoma City and then suggest right-wing extremism, even though — like the rest of us — he knows nothing.

“The Most Trusted Name In News.”

NOTE: There has been speculation on Twitter that CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said something similar. I have found nothing that indicates that is true.



How easy is it for a PalArab to lie on CNN?

November 23, 2012

This morning, after the incident on the Gaza border, CNN interviewed Diana Buttu, former PLO spokesperson.
See how she avoids answering anything, and how she lies with impunity without the interviewer making even a half-hearted attempt to blow holes in her statements:

0:19 – “The young man who was killed today was actually a farmer, who was trying to go farm his fields. There is absolutely no evidence that this was a demonstration,…”

She says this while the video is showing a demonstration! And Ma’an adds:

A relative of the dead man, who was at the scene, told Reuters that Qudaih had been trying to place a Hamas flag on the fence. He added that an Israeli soldier had fired into the air three times before Qdeih was hit in the head by a bullet.

So he was not only demonstrating – he was right at the fence and ignoring warning shots while apparently climbing it!
When asked about the bus bombing in Tel Aviv, rather than condemn it, Buttu says:

 0:51 – “Well, the incident regarding the bus occurred before the cease-fire took place – Look, I think we have to put this in its proper perspective…”

and then going on about how it is all about the “occupation.” The implication is that a bus bombing is a legitimate act of war.

She then goes on to say that violence is inevitable for people under “oppression” – in other words, saying that Mahmoud Abbas’ calls for “popular resistance” is simply not going to work, and Palestinian Arabs will always resort to violence. Again, the interviewer didn’t press her on this matter, asking her if she felt this was their right, or what she thought about the bus bombing or the rocket fire on civilians.
She then completely ignored a decent question about whether an Islamist political takeover of the Palestinian Arabs was inevitable, answering with a terse “no” without explanation and then went back to her playbook of pretending that Israel was the only one to benefit from the Fatah-Hamas split and of course that they were using it to build new settlements – something that hasn’t been done in, oh, about a decade – and somehow ethnically cleansing Arabs:

“getting rid of as many Palestinians as possible.”

Again, no pushback from the host on this obvious lie.
And then Buttu goes on to say that negotiations are not ever going to work, and that the only path to peace is by having the world pressure Israel and support her murderous cousins who just terrorized a couple of million Israelis.
Gee, thanks, CNN, for allowing a propagandist liar to spew forth for three minutes without a single challenge. Great work.

So, What DOES It Take to Get Fired By CNN, Fareed Zakaria?

August 13, 2012

Zakaria plagiarized a piece he wrote for TIME magazine (Breitbart)…He also posted the same plagiarism at CNN. As Friday wore on, CNN and TIME both went from “no comment” to suspending Zakaria, a journalist praised for his perspective on foreign policy. …As a journalist he’s especially known for his anti-Jewish sentiment.  (commentary) Fareed Zakaria is guilty of plagiarism. He has admitted copying a portion of a New Yorker essay and apologized. Time, where Zakaria works as a columnist, has suspended Zakaria for a month, and CNN—owned by the same parent company—has suspended him pending an investigation. This represents a mere slap on the wrist for someone whose standard speaking fee is $75,000. Yale University lecturer Jim Sleeper notes, however, Zakaria has a perch not only at CNN and Time, but also at Yale University, where he sits on the Yale Corporation, the University’s governing board and policy-making body. There is no greater academic sin than plagiarism. Students can be expelled for plagiarizing papers, and professors can be fired. To let Zakaria off the hook on his own recognizance would be to eviscerate the principle of academic integrity for which Yale says it stands. Whether Yale President Richard Levin will do the right thing, however, is another issue. While Levin has distinguished himself as a master fundraiser, he has also shown a disturbing willingness to undercut free speech (ironically, with Zakaria’s acquiescence), compromise academic integrity to foreign interests, and embrace fame over principle.

Christiane Amanpour Returns to CNN

April 12, 2012

Did anyone forget that Amanpour in Haiti accused Israeli doctors of stealing organs?

(cnn) Christiane Amanpour will host a new daily foreign affairs program on CNN International that will launch on Monday, April 16, it was announced today. Beginning with the program’s launch, the 30-minute daily broadcast of Amanpour, will air weeknights at 3:00pm, and replay at 5:00pm. All times are Eastern. “We are delighted to have Christiane back at CNN,” said Tony Maddox, executive vice president and managing director for CNN International. “Christiane’s sophisticated, incisive journalism is needed now, more than ever to add context and depth to the world’s biggest news and stories,” Maddox said.

The thing with Sanchez is it isn’t that anyone at CNN disagreed with him… they were merely pissed off that he exposed the network’s bias. Amanpour has got that femme-fascist vibe that the media likes however.If Rick Sanchez had a twat he’d be back too.

Why does Youtube keep on deleting the proof that Khader Adnan is a terrorist?

February 22, 2012
On the left is a video where CNN tries to sell the public that Khader Adnan is denied due process and that he supposedly is being held without evidence that he is a threat to the public. Notice how unfriendly the woman is to Regev who is quite professional. On the right is a video of Khader Adnan that Youtube keeps on censoring.
Seems like there is a conspiracy to hide the truth here… doesn’t it? Can anyone explain how the media gets away with this? should this video get censored… I just uploaded another copy of it here.

CNN Tilts East: Fires 4 Jewish Journalists in Jerusalem

February 13, 2012

Media_httpbarenakedis_hnepl(americanthinker.com)CNN has reportedly fired most of the Jews in its Jerusalem bureau, cutting half the bureau, but leaving Arab workers, and reviving charges of CNN’s pro-Arab slant.
CNN denies the charges, claiming a budgetary down-sizing, but two producers in the CNN Jerusalem office confirmed that four of the eight-person bureau, all Jews, were told they were being fired, leaving only one Jewish producer.

We strongly reject any suggestion that the reorganization in the Jerusalem bureau is in any way based on the small number of contract employees concerned being Israeli, particularly given CNN’s long history of working with locals in the region, declared a CNN spokesman, cited by Media-bistro.

Media Bistro, Dreuz.info and several Israeli media sources confirmed that CNN had fired Jewish workers with between ten and 25 years of experience. But several of the sources suggested that CNN’s was not so much anti-Jewish as pro-Arab.
“They are moving more and more of their activities to the Gulf,” said an ex-CNN correspondent who asked not to be quoted on the record, and, in fact. CNN made Abu Dhabi its fourth global hub in late 2009, along with New York, London and CNN headquarters in Atlanta. Sources in the foreign press in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv said that other media were cutting back in Jerusalem, and following the money and moving resources to the Gulf. CNN seems to be leading the pack, hosting many shows out of its new studios in Abu Dhabi City as well as CNN’s Arabic shows from Dubai City also in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

So economic considerations, alongside politics may explain the Jerusalem dismissals, but they sit in the long shadow of CNN’s record of sucking up to Arab extremists – – like Saddam Hussein and Yasser Arafat, and trying to ingratiate itself with both.
Well after the Gulf war, CNN’s news director Eason Jordan admitted trading soft coverage of Saddam in return for exclusive access in Iraq. So it might be a good idea to be wary of CNN claims of not discriminating against Jews or sucking up to Arabs.
CNN has often belittled terror attacks on Israelis, as in the 2011 murder of the Fogel family (i.e.the stabbing murder of both sleeping parents, a four year-old, an eleven-year-old and the beheading of a three-month old baby). CNN described the massacre as “what the Israeli army calls a ‘terrorist attack’.”
Israel protested CNN’s report at the time, and CNN did not respond publicly. On other occasions, CNN’s top reporters and commentators have minimized Iran’s nuclear plans, suggested that Arab-Islamic terror is a minor problem or that Arab-Islamic terror is equivalent to Jewish or Christian terror. Christiane Amanpour’s series “God’s Warriors” compared Arab terrorists to Jewish settlers and Christian preachers.
For his part, Fareed Zakaria has spent the best part of the last three years in the psychological state of denial, repressing the idea that Iran wants atomic weapons. Zakaria praised Barack Obama’s original idea of engaging Iran, and he recently criticized President Obama for putting pressure on Iranian leaders who really just want to be talked to, Zakaria said. The host of CNN’s GPS show said that even if Iran got nuclear weapons it was not a big problem, because Iran’s leaders were rational.
CNN is supposed to cover events on this planet, and instead of firing its Jewish employees perhaps it should jettison some of its space cadets. Whatever CNN claims, it is time to realize that CNN does not really stand for Cable News Network, but rather Certainly Not News
