CNN Scrapes Bottom

Posted on | February 14, 2013 | 23 Comments

John Hinderaker summarizes a panel on cop-killer Chris Dorner at The Third-Place Cable News Network Nobody Watches:

CNN’s panel is excited about Chris Dorner. They can understand why lots of people think he is a “superhero.” They think his deeds were “exciting,” like a “Denzel Washington movie,” and agree that Dorner shed valuable light on the critical issue of police brutality. Their panel is more or less a Chris Dorner fan club, with one lonely exception who thinks the most salient fact is that he was a murderer . . .

Meanwhile, according to The Third-Place Cable News Network Nobody Watches, it’s a potential “career ender” for Sen. Marco Rubio to take a sip of water during a televised speech.

    “Like a Denzel Washington movie”? I think not.

    Given Denzel credit. When he has played a gangster or alcoholic, he has them taking accountability at the end. That is not accidental.

    And unlike D.B. Cooper, Dorner did not engage in some property crime where no individual was actually hurt. Dorner was a monster. Remember he targeted and killed the daughter of a cop who was his representative at his discipline hearings as some sort of revenge. This is just further proof of the Democrat war on women. But hey, they can get free contraception…

    Of course CNN is scraping bottom, them being bottom feeders and all.

    CNN scrapes bottom? Try again. CNN hits bottom, digs even deeper. And i think third place is a bit high. You have (p)MSNBC, CNN, Fox, Al Jazeera, Comedy Central, and how many more that do a better job then the Commie Nuts?

    What weirdos! They don’t mind a fan club for Dorner, but taking a sip of water is a career ender. So glad I don’t have TV

    Dorner was a stereotypical bad cop.

    o Short temper — admitted he choked someone for “saying the n-word”

    o Lies under oath in order to create criminal accusations

    o Believes he’s above the law and acts on it

    Dorners’ leftist fans support him because he’s a black guy who went to war against the L.A.P.D. over unproven claims of injustice and seem to overlook the fact he’s a murderer. He’s part of the 13% of the U.S. population responsible for over 50% of all gun homicides and that seems more pertinent than any hollywood movie.

    CNN REDEFINES the Bottom.

    Whale shit is currently as happy as Jimmy Carter. (Having been equally edged out for the nethermost spot of US Presidents.)

    CNN is plumbing the Marianas Trench.

    Being a black guy who’s a murderer is a fairly common phenomenon in the black “community”.

    You have to understand what a difficult story this is for the StatzMedia to cover, Stacy, I mean, no one could find a picture of a 12-year-old smiling Chris Dorner…

    Quit ragging on CNN. Jake Tapper is playing the piano in the parlor as loud as he can to cover the noises coming from upstairs.

    Isn’t that guy the same one who co-authored a book with the convicted cop-killer “Mumia” who was such an icon to the left some years ago? Even though multiple witnesses and solid evidence proved he was guilty beyond any question?

    Isn’t common phenomenon an oxymoron like honest politician? Blacks commit more than half of all murders in the USA.

    CNN scrapes bottom? There are as yet unimaginable depths to which they aspire to plummet.

    If any of you have read Dorner’s “Manifesto”, this guy was out for vengeance. The only reason that these media pieces of garbage aren’t attacking him is because they agree with most of what he wrote. Lauren Ashburn is the only one that even remotely makes sense. Dorner didn’t even go after any of the people involved with the supposed wrongs he was inflicted with, he went after easy targets. Can you imagine if this were a Ron Paul Supporter or a Militia member? A prime example of media bias right here.

    Is that the FBI/DHS office above CNN?
