Jimmy Dore Dismantles CNN Over Anti-War Attack
CNN. SMH. Cable News Network seems now to have become Censorship News Network. CNN.com posted an article over the weekend that went after alternative voices across the political spectrum on YouTube. The article, titled Exclusive: YouTube ran ads from hundreds of brands on extremist channels, really puts CNN's credibility as a journalistic organization into question.
While the article calls out some truly reprehensible channels, it goes the extra step of grouping channels - right and left - who have antiwar stances in with the this group.
The article opens with the following assertions and labeling to make sure you get the point.
Ads from over 300 companies and organizations -- including tech giants, major retailers, newspapers and government agencies -- ran on YouTube channels promoting white nationalists, Nazis, pedophilia, conspiracy theories and North Korean propaganda, a CNN investigation has found.
The article claims that YouTube, a major competitor with CNN for ad dollars, ran ads on channels promoting ideas like those above. The article's writers took the further step of reaching out to companies to let them know their brands were besmirched by YouTube. The article concludes with the self-interested solution that companies avoid advertising on YouTube until the problem is fixed.
Swept up in all this nonsense was comedian and progressive commentator Jimmy Dore, host of the Jimmy Dore Show on YT. Dore's stance on our never-ending wars often result in him calling out networks like CNN, Fox, and MSNBC for their eternal love affair with war.
CNN, or at least the writers of the article, decided to fire back at Dore. Jimmy is a persistent and articulate opponent of the always another enemy strategy of the Military Industrial Complex. As any good comedian knows, you never let a heckler get the last word. Dore absolutely dismantles CNN and by extension the entirety of the MSM for their role in selling us one military conflict after another.
Good for you, Jimmy!
