Statement from the Candidate

In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

Do Cameras Determine The News? CNN Thinks So.

Much has been made of a temper tantrum that CNN’s Jim Acosta had recently when  White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced that the news agencies would have to leave their cameras turned off during the scheduled Q & A session for which they had assembled. In an attempt to get the cameras turned on Acosta repeatedly harassed Spicer by interrupting him and keeping him from speaking with other news reporters in the room.

Is CNN not familiar with radios and their ability to report the news without pictures? Does CNN think that, like comic books, pretty pictures are needed so their viewers will be able to retain some attention during a nightly the news report? Who has decided that only video recordings can accurately transmit the news of the day?

CNN is so desperate for TV ratings, and Mr. Acosta is so anxious that his face be seen by the viewers of CNN news, that they are insisting that they be allowed to capture the news by video recorders, while not paying enough attention to covering and reporting the news accurately and honestly. In other words, they concentrate more on reporting fake, lying news rather than on just simply reporting the news as it happens. Maybe the plain, straight forward news is not flashy or colorful enough for the big shots at CNN, or maybe reporters like Mr. Acosta consider themselves to be media stars and just like to generate a little extra news by making a ridiculous mountain out of a mole hill with his little “why can’t we turn the cameras on” performance.

If the liberal news organizations would concentrate less on the mode of reporting and would halt the lying reporting of the news that they have perfected, and if they would spend more time on non-partisan, non-confrontational reporting of the news, perhaps their ratings would rise as a result. But liberal news organizations are so intent on creating news that is critical of Donald Trump that they are losing credibility as reporters of the news altogether.
