In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


CNN Spends the Morning Beating Up Sean Hannity

And why not? He has the number one show on cable news, and he’s with evil Fox.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Early in the morning, CNN legal analyst Carrie Cordero argued that Hannity shouldn’t enjoy any legal privilege through his dealings with Cohen. Cordero said it wouldn’t be normal for a lawyer to work in confidence for a client without being formally retained.

Later, CNN media analyst Brian Stelter said Hannity should have disclosed to his viewers that he had a relationship with Cohen, someone he was covering on his Fox News show. Stelter said Hannity blurs the lines between reporting and entertainment.

After that, CNN had American Conservative Union Chairman Matt Schlapp, who was pressed by CNN host Alisyn Camerota if Hannity is a journalist.

To be clear, Hannity should have disclosed any ties or “advice” he was getting from Michael Cohen before assailing the FBI for raiding Cohen’s offices. Not only does Hannity have a conflict of interest because he has a relationship with Cohen, but there could well be information about Hannity himself in the documents the feds seized.

That said, this is hardly the Profumo Affair – look it up, kids – and CNN itself has a conflict of interest, hoping to take down a ratings monster with whom they can’t compete.

  1. Oh, how they’d love to hear how Sean used Cohen to pay off a disgruntled femme fatale after a affair went wrong.
    Why should Sean announce that he knew Cohen and talked to him on occasion, or even if he used his service for some legal matter?
    Since Sean or his agents didn’t join the legal proceeding to keep Cohen’s work product confidential, so there’s probably no there – there.

    1. I agree. Next there will be a story on Home Depot and Sean will be accused of not telling is audience he shopped there once – well, just browsed – didn’t really buy anything, just asked questions.

  2. CNN is in deep trouble, ratings-wise.

    “Not A Single CNN Show Is In The Top 20 For Cable News”

    From the story:
    “For the week of February 12-18, the network’s total primetime viewers were 27% lower than the ratings at a comparable time in 2017.”


    “CNN had significant declines in February, with ratings dropping 19% in total day and 16% in prime, where the network returned an average audience of 979,000 total viewers–behind MSNBC (1.805 million) and Fox News (2.766 million).”

    979,000 total viewers out from a country of 320,000,000 people?

    No sane person, or those interested in fair news reporting is watching CNN. It’s over for them.
