Jake Tapper

CNN has shocked many recently with fawning coverage of North Korea at the Winter Olympics in South Korea. And they are receiving widespread criticism from both the left and the right. And while much of their coverage has been surprising and disgusting, it has not completely ensnared all of their employees. But the news they have put out has been shameful.

For instance, they angered a lot of people by declaring that the sister of dictator Kim Jong-Un was “stealing the show” at CNN:

But it got worse from there. Writer and CNN contributor Salena Zito had the courage to tweet out her anger over journalists trying to normalize North Korea, clearly falling for their propaganda. She said, “I am deeply saddened by how my profession has normalized and glamorized this murderous regime. And then we wonder why no one trusts us.”

To which CNN anchor Chris Cuomo objected to, launching a bizarre defense of North Korea because of… you guessed it: Donald Trump! Cuomo actually had the audacity to tweet out, “You don’t think having a President who lies about what is “fake” and actively maligns the free press out of convenience is a bigger reason for animosity toward us than how some decide to cover this bs?”

And to be fair, a lot of left-wing news outlets have put out puff pieces about North Korea:

But one CNN anchor was not going to put up with this ridiculous charade. Jake Tapper, anchor of The Lead decided to put out exactly where he stands on the issue. After Chris Cuomo essentially said he hated Donald Trump more than North Korea, Tapper tweeted this out:

And this:

And he retweeted Salean Zito’s tweet that so angered Chris Cuomo:

But unfortunately, the North Korean apologists and anti-Trump loons came out of the woodwork:

    CNN is now like Humpty Dumpty. No one can put that mess back together again. I limit myself to 5 mins per month of CNN. Hard to get thru even that…

    I have not watched CNN for many years

    • cathy rauwald

      I must admit, I tuned in CNN the night of the election, just to watch them squirm. Only time I actually enjoyed CNN.

    • Don Obie

      Salena Is intelligent, accurate, and courageous, a great journalist. She is contrasted by most every talking head on CNN. Aiding and abetting the enemy. CNN wishes the USA and all the Dems had Kim’s power to tell us what the truth is, and what collusion is, or if Despot Kim will take all his sister’s accolades and use that for her death sentence, like they did with the other family member bumped off at the airport.

  • Pat

    When you hit rock bottom, pull out a pick ax, you can always dig deeper. CNN confirms that liberalism is a serious disease of the brain.

  • donl

    Commie News Network is still in business? Amazing, must be Soros money.

  • Jmanjo

    I don’t watch CNN but I do se them make fools of themselves while I watch the WH press meetings. Tapper finally sees the dirt that CNN engages in. No wonder they are having money issues.

  • marten5

    North Korea put on a charm show starring that country’s propaganda minister and western media including CNN went for it, swallowing the BS hook, line and sinker.
    That media “anchors” actually able to defend their position with a straight face is quite interesting.
    If you want fairly decent news, try the South China Morning Post, Hong Kong or the Straits Times out of Malaysia. Also, if you want to see what people think about Trump and the United States, there are a large number of e-newspapers around the world printed in English. You’d be amazed.
    As a last resort, you can watch Fox, although they lean to the Right, they try to be fairly open in their presentations.

    I’ve refused to watch CNN since 1993 when they had a film crew in Somalia waiting on the beach for the “invading” Navy Seals, which led DIRECTLY to the Blackhawk Down fiasco.

    • Myke Britt

      Give credit where credit is due. BLACKHAWK DOWN AND AMERICAN SOLDIERS MURDERED BELONGS IN THE LAP OF HILLBILLY CLINTON.

  • Brian P Fussmucker

    Yah it’s really great to live in a country that satellites prove the only light at night emanating from that country is a nuclear missed launch . Trump making this country great again ever passing second and cnn ratings lose a viewer every passing millisecond

    • Myke Britt

      Why has the stories been stopped about the rural North Koreans being forced to dig up and eat their dead to keep from starving?

      • Brian P Fussmucker

        Because Kimmie family are better leaders than trump

  • Gooseguts

    M.P. “The U.S. imperial military…” When do we take countries for ourselves you blithering fool. Ask the nations that we’ve freed from nazis, dictators, etc. how we’ve taken them over and suppressed their citizens. Are you really that naive or just plain STUPID!?!?

    • reagangs

      Then there’s S Korea, free of NK communism.

  • 4lifeandfreedom

    The so-called “journalists” should be careful what they wish for.–Salena and Jake are certainly correct in what they tweeted. Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota(could not stand her on Fox and Friends) are examples of untrustworthy reporting, heralded by their hatred of Trump and their love for the evil Hillary. Maybe they would like to don orange pantsuits and enter her cell, also.

  • Edward Bennett

    THIS ADORABLE GUY MUST HAVE HIS HEAD UP HIS BUTT SO FAR HE IS NOT ONLY BLIND TO WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE WORLD HE DOESN’T HEAR TO WELL EITHER. THOSE US TROOPS HE TALKS ABOUT ARE STATIONED IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES FOR A NUMBER OF REASONS NOT THE LEAST OF WHICH IS PROTECTION FOR THE HOST COUNTRY AND TO SUPPLEMENT THEIR BUDGETS, THOSE BASES ARE NOT FREE, OH AND YES THEY ARE THERE FOR OUR PROTECTION ALSO , LIKE THE ONE IN SOUTH KOREA, THE ONE THAT KEEPS THE NORTH AT BAY. ADORABLE YOU ARE SUCH A JERKWAD !

  • George Durdin

    Our country is very sick and in a lot of trouble…….It is sad to say but apparently we need another Pearl Harbor or 9/11 to bring the American people back to their sense. Of course it doesn’t seem that today’s generations have the same backbone and grit of the “Greatest Generation”. We no longer have a FREE PRESS, but a bought and paid for media propaganda machine to be used to manipulate and brain wash the American people in to becoming zombies in an oppressive Democratic Socialist welfare state.

    • Myke Britt

      WHY NOT THE DNC HEADQUARTERS? THAT’S WHERE THE ENEMY LIVES!

  • reagangs

    I believe that his sister has a beauty line of products that she wanted marketed in the US, but couldn’t because of our embargo against NK.

  • Mainman12

    Can you say that the shills at CNN are “out of their minds”… if they have already lost all of their minds?

  • 101fitness

    Unbelievable!! If you hate the U.S. that much, why don’t you pack up and leave. Start a go-fund me account if you “can’t afford” it. Sell your food stamps, your free phone or just wing it. Make America much better by your leaving. Just think, you will be happier and I know we will be much happier.

  • Diane Jones

    I have not nor will I ever again watch CNN. To compare North Korea with any country is barbaric.
    He is the Hitler of the century. That’s not anything to be proud of. I think CNN must be paid for by the dark state and their cronies. They should be thankful that they live in a country by which they can say all the crap they say and not be shot or imprisoned. If they don’t like it here; LEAVE. We will help. take a boat, plane just get out.

    • bkeyes71@yahoo.com

      I will gladly donate to buy them tickets to get out of our country.

  • Myke Britt

    Jake Tapper surprises me, but I’m glad he still has a modicum of decency.

  • Todd

    Hey people just look at ALL the people trying to get into North Korea, I mean geee’s, they have A WALL just to keep the South Koreans out. but maybe the trick of North Korea is to keep its people SO weak from malnutrition that they can’t leave.

  • Wmichaelmic

    What should concern America the most is the fact that CNN has any viewership at all. If there are people that actually believe their propaganda, this country is in very deep trouble.

  • tdg54

    I don’t watch CNN. The young Cuomo is a goof, but he suffers from acute Trump Derangement Syndrome, so I’ll go easy on him and only say “thanks for the moronic comment, Chris.”

  • higgy01

    I wonder how long Ms. Zito will last at fake news CNN.

  • Jose Lopez

    These idiots on CNN are a bunch of socialistic communistic idiots who hate the freedom of the USA. Someday, if they keep on the track they are on these stupid people will reap what they sow.

  • RERJR

    Chris Cuomo’s vision of the Free Press seems to imply the press is Free to Lie at will. The press is franchised by our Constitution to educate the public with facts, not with political hate toward our President and unfounded praise for our nation’s sworn enemies.

    Seems like Chris might enjoy life more in North Korea. He would be a real rock star for Li’l Kim.

  • Big Ed

    It sounds like there are a number of people who think that North Korea is better than the US, many believing that NK is better in most every way. I think it would be a really good idea for us to gather them all up and send them to NK-because I just can’t stand to see so many people having to live in a hellhole like the US when they could be basking in the NK sun. I believe these idiots have a perfect right to say whatever stupidity they want (freedom of speech, etc.). But, I can also see how someone might want to punch them in their ignorant noses, and do it every time they opened their dumb ass mouths. I don’t necessarily like the idea of hitting someone because of what they say, but they are leftists and leftists (Antifa) love the idea of punching people because you don’t like their words.

  • bkeyes71@yahoo.com

    I try to never watch CNN, NBC, ABC and MSNBC also BBC, they are all anti- US.
