Looking For The Very Best In Opinion Manipulation? Try CNN! Now With Added Bias!
Tonight I read the very first article that CNN has featured as a lead-in story on Libertarian Presidential candidate Gary Johnson. The headline for the article was "Why is Gary Johnson Still Running" and pretty much just hammers the man for two supposed gaffes:
1) He could not name a single world leader, or specifically a current leader in the Americas, that he admired, and 2) that he did not immediately recognize the name of the Syrian city of Aleppo when asked how he would help the besieged city,
The first sentence of the article, BTW, was "Gary Johnson is the new punching bag of the 2016 campaign."
Those bits, the ones that take entirely out of context a thinking man's need to actually ponder a question, give it real thought and consideration and not just reply with a flippant, media-friendly sound bite, are straight out of Joseph Goebbels playbook.
Guess what that bill of goods is trying to sell you?
And guess what the opinion piece featured directly below the "article" about Gary Johnson was titled?
If you said; "Not Into Hillary? I Wasn't Either". You are correct.
Guess what bill of goods that article is trying to sell you?
CNN has a specific political agenda, plain and simple. There is no possible way that any intelligent, rational human being cannot see that. It is not and has never been an impartial, independent news outlet.
