CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Frets Over Trump Enemy Comment: “We love the American people”

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Frets Over Trump Enemy Comment: “We love the American people”

“Everybody’s always criticizing us and not happy with our coverage”

https://youtu.be/I04DLv45TNo

Trump recently took a dig at the media on Twitter, specifically NBC News and CNN, following the North Korea Summit in Singapore. Who can blame him? We all know exactly what the coverage would have been like if Obama had attempted to broker peace on the Korean peninsula.

Here’s Trump’s tweet:

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer was upset about this and even mentioned it on the air. Matt Vespa reports at Townhall:

CNN On Trump Trashing Them: ‘We’re Not The Enemy Of The American People. We Love The American People.’

CNN did not take kindly to the words that President Trump used to describe them. After his historic summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, Trump lashed out at the news media, saying fake news is the “biggest enemy” to the country. The president specifically called out CNN and NBC…

Well, journalists are foot soldiers of the elite. They don’t think they’re ever wrong. And they get riffled like no other when they’re called fake or an enemy of the people. After years of Republicans more or less tolerating and accepting the bias in the media, we have a guy in the Oval who fights back.

If the media slaps Trump, he delivers an upper cut. I’m okay with this, especially since the media has caught Trump Derangement Syndrome. Everyone knows they want this denuclearization summit to collapse in the hopes of booting him in 2020. Folks, this is a network that couldn’t accurately report on how Trump fed koi fish with the Japanese prime minister.

David Rutz of the Washington Free Beacon has the details on what Blitzer said:

CNN analyst David Gregory attacked Trump for being unoriginal, saying all politicians don’t like the press.

“Everybody’s always criticizing us and not happy with our coverage, whether it was President Clinton or President Bush or President—they’re all criticized,” Blitzer said.

Blitzer went on to say a lot of Trump’s supporters believed the charge, which was “a really, really awful situation.”

“We are not the enemy of the American people. We love the American people,” he said.

Here’s the video:

Maybe it’s just me, but when I hear Wolf Blitzer declare his love for the American people, all I can think of is this classic scene from Mel Brooks in History of the World Part I:

If CNN loves the American people, they sure have a funny way of showing it.

CNN hates everything about the country from its history, racial make up, language, flag, industry and The Constitution itself.

Shouldn’t he be saying, “We are the American people” ? Or at least part of it?

But I suppose that would diminish their status.

We hate you, Wolf, because you hated us first.

Wolfie can stick this in his corn cob pipe and smoke it.

@jbourque

You nailed it.

    Actually, my first exposure to the quote was “we are the American people”, i.e. a misquote of what Wolf actually said. Given that, it was hard to miss when I saw the words he actually used. The misquote gave him too much credit?

Geez, some people can dish it out, but can’t take it when it comes their way!

LOL, this is too awesome! What better way to signal complete and utter disconnect from the American people than to declare you love “the American people” . . . with whom you don’t identify in the least.

After all, we’re on the Deplorables Adventure ride at Disney World for these people. Keep your headphones or ear buds firmly in place as we pass the Deplorables sanctuary; they’ve been known to have ideas and to express them . . . with words!

Yet they still wonder #WhyTrumpWon

CNN and NBC (and the FBI, apparently) have no idea how overpowering the smell of their contempt for us is.

As for asshat Blitzer – FFS there is no better example of the vacuous idiocy of the press, a master of the ‘How does it feel to be a widow and to have watched the dismemberment of your husband?’ school of journalism. Also dumb as a box of rocks – Google him on Jeopardy. Don Henley was way ahead of his time with Dirty Laundry.

These DNC propagandists hate and despise us so much they think we needed DJT to come along and tell us that. I’ll just cover just a few instances, only one my own experience. I had a reporter tell me to my face that if he didn’t get the information he wanted from the Navy he’d simply lie and force the USN to respond. I forget what organization he worked for because this is close to 28 years ago. But I believed him because a reporter did exactly that to my executive officer when he was a LT.

When we’d conduct port visits we’d often set up static displays of our aircraft and bring tour groups aboard. A reporter had infiltrated one tour group in Hong Kong (back when it was still British; we wouldn’t do it now that it’s CHICOM), and my XO didn’t know there a was a reporter in the group. People in the tour group could of course ask us questions, and the guy who turned out a reporter asked a lot of them. My XO thought there was something a bit odd about it, but he answered the questions the best he could within the bounds of security.

The next day he was called in to see the Air Wing Commander and got royally chewed out for talking to the press when he wasn’t authorized to do so. The reporter had published a completely BS article about how the USN was trying to provoke a war with China. The reporter clearly had this piece of fiction already written. He just needed a few choice quotes he could take out of context and fill in some blanks. And he got them from my XO.

First of all, he didn’t know he was talking to the press. And he couldn’t help but blurt out, “But I thought they were on our side!” when he saw what paper it was in.

It was in Stars & Stripes.

He had already warned us never to talk to the press because none of them are on your side. Which is why I believed the reporter when he said he’d make up lies about us.

Recall Jayson Blair? He claimed to have traveled to West Virginia to talk to Jessica Lynch’s family, once when she was still missing and once after she had been rescued. He claimed to have talked to her father when he never did. He said that tobacco fields and cattle pastures were visible from their home when there were no such fields or pastures anywhere near their house. He even made up a dream he claimed Lynch’s mother told him she had.

It was all a pack of lies. He never traveled further than his Brooklyn apartment although he’d file his equally fictional expense reports.

It turned out the family was aware of Blair and what he was writing through the press. The had never met him personally, and they knew he was lying about them. When some reporters did go meet them, the reporters asked why they didn’t say anything? They told the reporters they just figured that’s what reporters did for a living; lie.

It was still available online the last time I looked. Search for the NYT op-ed by former CNN news chief Eason Jordan, “The News We Kept To Ourselves.” It had to be the most self-serving, dishonest op-eds I ever read. He apologized for reporting unfiltered Saddam Hussein propaganda, but claimed CNN had to do it otherwise their local employees would be in danger. And I thought, “Don’t you know how to avoid that? Don’t open a bureau in a totalitarian dictatorship and hand the dictator hostages.” But they valued the tagline, “This is CNN, Baghdad” more than they valued the truth. Talk about fake news; they were simply stenographers for a dictator.

Nothing has changed. When reporters go to Gaza to report the “news” Hamas confiscates their passports and insists on reviewing anything they write before they file it. And they have to work out of the “Hamas Press Office” which is just another official building dedicated to terrorism. So naturally it means Israel can’t strike a legitimate leadership target because essentially these outlets are handing Hamas human shields. And since it’s been going on so long and it’s such common knowledge I have to conclude that they want to be Hamas’ human shields and propagandists because they’ve chosen sides.

Later after being forced out at CNN Eason Jordan still pretending to be a journalist accused US forces of targeting reporters in Iraq. He made the accusation at that pretentious conclave in Davos, Switzerland. It was so over the top that even Barney Frank, also attending, demanded evidence. Naturally he had none because the Lynch family was right. Reporters lie for a living. If you’re the wrong kind of “inferior” then our “betters” in the LHMFM will lie about you.

Never give a pre-recorded interview to a TV “news” crew unless you have your own camera present to record the interview. That’s so when they deceptively edit the video you have the evidence to burn them. If you’re ever asked for an interview (you are secretly recording this, right?) and the reporter wants to go over the time limit because “talking to you is just so interesting” that’s the red flag the reporter has a pre-written hit piece and the reporter just haves’t gotten the gotcha quote yet that they can take out of context and round out the piece.

And Wolf Blitzer et al at CNN and other DNC propaganda operations think we’d never figure all this out until DJT came along to start “poisoning our minds.” Speaking of poisoning minds, why hasn’t the NYT voluntarily returned Walter Duranty’s Pulitzer? He carried water for the dictatorship in the USSR, lying about the Holodomor and the “revolutionary” reign of terror decades before CNN would ever exist.

    “”It was in Stars & Stripes.””

    No worse than any of the military Times group of papers. Everything was slanted left.

According to a poll conducted by Monmouth University earlier this year, 77& of Americans believe the media lies. According to Gallup, a majority of Americans haven’t had confidence in the media since 2007.

I hate the msm! But here is the view that helps to understand them. They don’t hate middle America but they think that we are not educated like they are and that we do not have their logic.So they treat us like we would treat a mentally handicapped person who has to be talked to differently than others. They see no insult in this view. They have no idea why anyone who is sane would own a gun. They see no earthly reason why we need border security. Don’t know why we don’t have a single-payer healthcare system. They see no hypocrisy in watching a Michael Wolf or a Samantha Bee say disgusting things about a sitting president or his family but scream if one on the right says or does something similar about one of their own. They truly think they are better than us and do not understand why we don’t appreciate the effort to help us. It doesn’t make it right but it does help to see why they don’t get any better.

    So the MSM is just self-projecting what they really are onto the rest of us…………

    “They don’t hate middle America…”

    Yes they do. Middle America stands in the way of their commie paradise.

    Arminius in reply to inspectorudy. | June 15, 2018 at 10:22 pm

    I don’t disagree. But it’s why I said:

    “…If you’re the wrong kind of “inferior” then our “betters” in the LHMFM will lie about you…”

    We’re all their inferiors as far as the media is concerned. But if after they ‘splain the world to us slowly, loudly, and using small words and you still reject the idea of having them tell you about the world then you’re wrong kind of inferior and then they will hate you.

    Surprisingly there are people who actually buy what they’re selling. And then they’re the right kind of inferior and they don’t hate you. But they’ll still lie about you. They’ll tell you things like, “The only possible reason you could have not to vote for Barack Obama is that you’re a racist.” And, again surprisingly, a lot of people did vote for Obama just to prove they’re not racists.

I’m so old I can remember when it was worth listening to Wolf Blitzer. The dude is riding or actually coasting on his reputation as a reporter from the First Gulf War. He’s long since milked that cow dry. Hang it up Wolfie–you are years past your sell by date.

    Must disagree. Blitzer was never worth listening to. Nothing more than a lousy prompter reader from the very beginning. With the most annoying voice & demeanor to boot.

    Did I mention I’ve never much cared for the guy?

    MajorWood in reply to Comanche Voter. | June 17, 2018 at 6:25 pm

    I still like when Mike Meyer’s alluded to him as Howitzer Cannon-guy in SNL. Are we sure his name wasn’t made up just to cover the Gulf war?

    My favorite part of the MSM these days are the comments following news articles, where it is apparent that the readers aren’t buying the party line. It is in the comments where one finds the truth in the matter. The followup to the shooting incident in Newark last night was hilariously truthful as the commies in control tried to spin a completely different chain of events. It is rarely the crime, and almost always the coverup which brings people down, and the dem politicians are now learning that they aren’t immune.

Hey Wolf, we don’t love you, we despise you, as we despise all anti-American commie loving hacks.

Wolf and CNN should just get jobs with the FBI. They’d all fit right in.

Smug liberals (especially hollywood imbeciles) think they’re in wolf’s elite class by agreeing with him.

What a doofus.

Slap him.

CNN has ruined their brand name with half the U.S. forever 🙂

    Arminius in reply to G. de La Hoya. | June 15, 2018 at 10:36 pm

    Not just CNN but nearly all the media. Have you ever heard of the Gell-Mann Amnesia? It’s when you read an article or watch a TV news segment on a subject you know well and realize the reporters, editors, producers, anchors, etc., is completely clueless. They have no idea what they’re talking about. Sometimes they are so clueless they get cause and affect reversed. It’s like if you examine the corpses of people who died from complications of diabetes and discovering everyone who died was injecting insulin. And the reporter concludes “Insulin is killing diabetics!

    And then you read the next article or watch the next segment which isn’t on a subject you know very well. And you believe it!

    Yeah, I don’t suffer from Gell-Mann Amnesia. I just figure they’re lying to me all the time. I’ve been like that for at least twenty years if not longer. I only watch CNN when I’m in an airport departure lounge. And sometimes I’ll see a segment that seems interesting. And then I’ll wonder if any of it was true.

Trump also called NBC out as fake news in that tweet.

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/leader-pakistani-taliban-killed-u-s-drone-strike-afghanistan-say-n883446?cid=sm_npd_nn_tw_ma

“…Prior to the Afghan Defense Ministry stating that Fazlullah had been killed, several members of the Pakistani Taliban told NBC News they had been unable to make contact with him and other senior commanders since receiving word of the strike.

They said they feared four other top commanders may also have been killed.

‘Most of our people are seriously concerned ‎after they heard about the killing of our leader, but the top leadership is out of access…'”

I’m not so sure it’s the American people that our media loves. Something tells me NBC would never doxx their Taliban friends like CNN doxxes Americans.

For years the media, and CNN and Blitzer in particular, have been perfectly clear about how much they hate us, how they hold us in contempt, and consider themselves superior to us in every way.

Their whining is music to my ears. If they succeed in ending the rule of law and destroying the country, they are going to be horribly surprised at what happens to them.

He’s a moral sheep in wolf’s clothing.

A corrupt propagandist since day one.

@Blitzer “We love the American people” You don’t talk down to people you love … you’re a liar.

My timeline about Eason Jordan was a little bit off. When he made the remarks in 2005 about US forces deliberately targeting journalists he was still in charge at CNN. It was those remarks that he couldn’t substantiate that forced him to resign.

https://www.weeklystandard.com/easons-fable/article/6463

Despite the fact that CNN was forced to respond several times with non-apologies and tortured explanations for his remarks, none of the major national news agencies reported on it until Jordan resigned. And then they refused to give their viewers/readers the full story. They essentially whitewashed it as Ed Morrissey explains.

“FOR TWO WEEKS Eason Jordan has been engulfed in a blogswarm. During remarks at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, the now-former CNN executive accused the U.S. military of DELIBERATELY TARGETING JOURNALISTS IN IRAQ FOR MURDER. The unleashed fury of the blogosphere eventually overcame a media blackout to force Jordan from his job, discredit the American media, and start a debate on the nature of blogging that derived directly from the mainstream media’s attempt to cast the entire effort as a partisan witch hunt.

But the media has no one but itself to blame–as it stubbornly refused to acknowledge the existence of the controversy, with major national outlets making Eason Jordan’s resignation their very first report of the story. Even worse, the media had the story first, and buried it.

The story started slowly, with a lone entry on the official WEF weblog, Forumblog.com, by Rony Arbovitz on January 28. Rony wrote:

During one of the discussions about the number of journalists killed in the Iraq War, Eason Jordan asserted that he knew of 12 journalists who had not only been killed by US troops in Iraq, but they had IN FACT BEEN TARGETED. He repeated the assertion a few times, which seemed to win favor in parts of the audience (the anti-US crowd) and cause great strain on others…”

He had apparently made this accusation several times throughout his career, accusing US forces in Somalia (1993) and Afghanistan (2002). And the best part as far as I’m concerned in terms of exposing the media for the propagandists that they are? The 1993 accusation was pure Iraqi propaganda.

“* A first-person account surfaced of Jordan forcing a CNN reporter to read a prepared statement written by the Iraqi Information Ministry while representing it as a straightforward news piece by CNN in 1993.”

As I said in an earlier post, these “American journalists” don’t carry water for dictators and terrorists because they are forced to. They do it because they want to.

To be fair, one of the people strained by Jordan’s anti-American remarks in Switzerland was Barney Frank, who rightfully pushed-back and said that U.S. forces do not deliberately target journalists for murder. As noted in this non-sequitur of a non-apology from CNN as they showed they don’t know the fist rule of holes. When you find yourself in one, stop digging.

‘Many blogs have taken Mr. Jordan’s remarks out of context. Eason Jordan does not believe the U.S. military is trying to kill journalists. Mr. Jordan simply pointed out the facts: While the majority of journalists killed in Iraq have been slain at the hands of insurgents, the Pentagon has also noted that the U.S. military on occasion has killed people who turned out to be journalists. The Pentagon has apologized for those actions. Mr. Jordan was responding to an assertion by Cong. Frank that all 63 journalist victims had been the result of ‘collateral damage.'”

Except of course that isn’t what Jordan said. There were other journalists at the conference where Jordan made those remarks and they fully backed up Rony Arbovitz’s report. Jordan claimed that US forces had deliberately targeted journalists. And note CNN left out that Jordan had made the same claim in 1993 (he may have forced a CNN anchor to read the statement written by Saddam’s propagandists, but he willingly repeated it on several occasions so he obviously agreed with the dictator) and 2002.

Clearly CNN concluded that since, out of professional courtesy, the other majore national news outlets were simply going to ignore the story they were free to rewrite history.

Perhaps the critics would quite down if they listened to the people instead of lecturing and trying to indoctrinate them.
