I missed the threads for the last eight years where you were calling for Fox News to be shut down because of unfair and often fake criticism of President Obama ... could you direct me to those threads? They must be here somewhere or you'd just look like an incredible hypocrite. Thanks.
On the other hand, calling for the declaration of a news agency as a traitor because they disagree with your politics is a very dangerous trend. Just think about it for a moment, and let me share with you.
My biggest personal concern is civil rights. Equity before the laws for all people. Aside from that, I would be considered fairly conservative in my political beliefs ... I'm in favor of a balanced budget or at least moving toward one, I'm in favor of a strong military, I'm in favor of gun rights, and freedom of and from religion. My ideas about the power and size of the Federal government would probably be best described as moderate, but, I'm very much in favor of the government being constrained by the actual powers provided for in Article I.
Of course CNN is biased. Every outlet is biased. Every newspaper. Every blog. And this has long been know in American politics stretching back to George Washington.
This arbitrary, extremist, absurdist and utterly un-Constitutional strike against a member of the American press is wholly and entirely without merit. It smacks of totalitarianism. You simply cannot classify the whole of what CNN (or any other group) as "fake."
If it is fake and it is as "damaging" as you claim, then the President can sue CNN in court for defamation. Why aren't you calling for that? Is it because you know that these claims would completely fall apart in the eyes of justice and rationality?
Fox has NOTHING on the Clinton news network

The Cable News Network (CNN) is becoming so radical and obsessed with drumming up negative emotions against the President of the United States, and our country in general, that I'm starting this thread to document specific instances.
At one time, CNN's fake news was just an annoyance. As this ATS thread pointed out, it was even somewhat humorous during the gulf war.

I take it you'll be running from that Truth then? Good luck with that.
