Sean Hannity just blew the whistle on how CNN operates. Hannity, the king of cable ratings, has been under attack from jealous competitors for years.
They say he is too close to Trump, they say he is an opinion journalist, not a straight news guy as if that was a bad thing.
It’s a dumb argument for the goons on the left to fall into because Hannity admits to anyone he is in the opinion business.
Hannity is open with his audience and transparent to America, love him or hate him. CNN? Not so much according to a bombshell report from a former 60 minutes reporter.
Widely respected former 60 Minutes journalist Lara Logan blasted CNN propagandists Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon Wednesday night on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show.
“What I really want to know,” she asked, “Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo … are they opinion hosts?”
Logan has been on a mission of late, pointing out the bleeding elephant in the room to all who will listen–that is, the standard of objective news reporting is on life support in America today.
Lamenting the blossoming biased news reporting through many major media outlets, on Hannity, Logan specifically wondered how programming on CNN like the Cuomo-Lemon duo is masqueraded as news to the audience.
“I’m not a politician, right, and not a political reporter. My concern as a journalist,” said Logan, “is trying to figure out what the facts are and trying to figure out what people are actually representing and what they’re trying to do in the election.
“And as journalists, it seems to me, our job is to do that. That is our duty. But what I really want to know, Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, are they opinion hosts? Are these opinion shows or news programs? That is an important distinction. And people tell me, American people, that is what they want to know. When they turn on the news they want the facts. When they turn on an opinion show like yours they want your opinion.”
She continued, “So where do these people stand?
“As an organization, where does CNN stand? Have you taken a political position or have you not? The problem with what has been happening in the media as far as I’m concerned is that we claim the middle ground. We claim to be objective and we are not. That is dishonest.”
“On the CNN website,” media reporter Joe Concha of The Hill stated, “they are listed as anchors and clearly they are giving opinions.”
