For years, CNN and the liberal media have been lying about Conservatives. They have been calling them racist, sexist, homophobic, and every other deplorable word. They have even downplayed or celebrated violence against Conservatives.
The Virginia GOP shooter is a good example of what their hateful rhetoric leads to. But despite all of that CNN Chief Jeff Zucker attacked President Trump for causing violence against reporters with his words. Zucker also tried to claim that you can never question the job of the media because the freedom of press is a part of the First Amendment.
“This is what happens when you try to delegitimize an institution that is trying to do its job. It is shameful on the part of the administration and other politicians to cause a frenzy against something that is guaranteed in the Constitution of the United States,” said Zucker.
“It does a disservice to this country and its position in the world and allows a heightened sense of rhetoric against journalists and media organizations,” said Zucker.
He said that it is “unconscionable and dangerous and they should know better.” He made these remarks right after the shooting of Scalise. The shooter was driven to shoot Scalise after watching the mainstream media. CNN is trying to take the blame off of themselves but they will fail.
