Here is the thing that is so amusing about CNN… Pretty much every day the far-left network engages in numerous acts of self-humiliation. A Don Lemon or Chris Cuomo or Jake Tapper or Brian Stelter says or does something that forever stains their character, that reveals the hideous person beneath … and for what?
If CNN had anything other than tragic ratings, if CNN were in second place or even close to second place, I could understand the shamelessness, the tabloid approach to covering politics. But CNN’s ratings are not only awful, they are miraculously awful. Not only is CNN in far-last place, The Least Trusted Name In News does not even have a breakout star or show. Throughout all of last quarter, and only in competition with two other networks (MSNBC and Fox), not a single CNN show — not even one — placed in the top 20.
Think about how awful CNN is to accomplish such a thing, to only have two other networks to compete with and still not place even one show in the top 20 throughout an entire quarter.
Here’s another scenario that might makes sense of CNN’s relentless campaign of self-degradation… Let’s say CNN’s ratings are just as bad, but with breaking stories and smart reporting, CNN is having an impact on public opinion and the news cycle. If that was the case, I could understand the freak show, because having an impact matters. And if it takes a freak show to have an impact, so be it. Except…
CNN has no impact at all. All of the Big Stories CNN broke this year turned out to be fake news, and ever since Carl Bernstein’s disgrace, CNN has pretty much stopped reporting. Like a prize fighter who got knocked out, the anti-Trump channel seems scared to get back in the ring. So what does CNN do instead…?
CNN is now a 24/7, left-wing echo chamber of hate, violence, and flamingly awful hot takes; a safe space by way of an anti-Trump safe space by way of panel after panel after panel of unimpressive people who all agree with one another signaling their own virtue and spewing poison at their political enemies.
So here is my theory as to why CNN has decided to become a full-time freak show…
Nothing CNN chief Jeff Zucker has tried over the last five years has succeeded. Nothing. His morning show, which should have been his crown jewel, is one of the lowest rated shows in all of cable news.
Overall, Zucker has failed utterly in lifting CNN’s ratings out of far last place. In fact, CNN sheds viewers by double digits most every month.
Even worse have been CNN’s attempts at journalism. Pretty much everything CNN reports is eventually uncovered as fake news. Because of this, CNN’s reputation is in tatters, beyond repair — the network is a national punch-line, a laughingstock.
So that leaves Carnival Barker Zucker and his Circus Geeks with only one option — to put on the freak show. The only thing CNN has left, the only way CNN can garner attention anymore is through self-abasement, is to capture our attention as we wait to see just how low Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, Jake Tapper, Brian Stelter and the rest are willing to go.
All CNN has left is to bite the heads off of chickens in the hopes it will go viral, because that is, well, something — that is at least some level of celebrity, some form of attention.
In other words, CNN is in a position where it has nothing to lose. Things could not possibly get worse, so why hide? Why be professional? Why be decent? With nothing left to lose, CNN staffers are free to reveal themselves as the unscrupulous, mean-spirited, clueless, angry babies they really are.
And there is no doubt that President Trump’s ongoing successes combined with last week’s confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and Kanye West opening his eyes to the 50 year failure of the Democrat Party, has freaked out the CNN freaks in ways we have never before seen.
This week was a week of all new lows at CNN; 17 by my count, and I probably missed a few.

Vandals targeted the Metropolitan Republican Club in Manhattan on Thursday evening in an apparent politically-motivated intimidation campaign.
In exclusive statements to Breitbart News, officials with the Metropolitan Republican Club said Antifa had been trying to shut down their event on Friday evening with conservative pundit Gavin McInnes.
According to one official, members of Antifa had harassed the online ticket vendor Eventbrite, which the GOP Metropolitan Club used to sell tickets for the McInnes event at their headquarters.
The official said Antifa had “desperately” been trying to get the Metropolitan Republican Club to cancel the McInnes speech. The group’s latest attempt came shut down the event involved vandalising the club’s 1930s, pre-war building and leaving a threatening letter, which Breitbart News has obtained.See more photos and read the rest of this article at breitbart.com.

While speaking at an event for Democratic candidates in Georgia, former Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder suggested to the crowd to “kick” Republicans.
Holder said, “It is time for us as Democrats to be as tough as they are, to be as dedicated as they are, to be as committed as they are.”
He continued, “Michelle says, ‘When they go low, we go high.’ No. No. When they go low, we kick ’em.” Continue reading at breitbart.com.
