WOW! Larry King Just Dropped A TRUTH BOMB On CNN
A good long time ago, CNN used to be a place that you could go to when you wanted to get some actual news.
Now it’s nothing more than a group of liberal cheerleaders that happen to have some television broadcasting equipment in front of them. Trust me CNN, it doesn’t make you special.
It doesn’t make them right either.
Former CNN host Larry King declared earlier this week that his erstwhile employer “stopped doing news a long time ago,” opting instead to mainly cover President Donald Trump.
King told his RT Television colleague Rick Sanchez (also formerly with CNN) on Tuesday that during the 2016 primary election, CNN covered Trump “as a character.”
“They carried every speech he made,” King said. “They carried more of him than Fox News at the beginning. And so they built the whole thing up and the Republicans had a lot of candidates and they all had weaknesses.”
Sanchez argued CNN gave Trump so much airtime because “they didn’t think he was going to win.”
“I guess it’s to their regret,” said King, whose eponymous program ran from 1985 to 2010.
The 84-year-old further contended that “CNN stopped doing news a long time ago. They do Trump. Fox is Trump TV and MSNBC is anti-Trump all the time.”
“There was vicious winds and storms in the Northeast the other day — not covered on any of the three cable networks. Not covered!” King said. “So when CNN started covering Trump — they were the first, they covered every speech he made — and then they made Trump the story.
“So, Trump is the story in America. I would bet that 98 percent of all Americans mention his name at least once a day. And when it’s come to that, when you can focus on one man, I know Donald 40 years — I know the good side of Donald and I know the bad side of Donald — I think he would like to be a dictator. I think he would love to be able to just run things.
Veteran Washington journalist Chris Wallace had some stern words for CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Thursday, following his combative exchange with Trump the previous day and some questions for the journalist’s employer.
