Don Lemon: We Should Censor The President, Put In A Fact-Check Delay

 

Last night CNN host Don Lemon suggested that perhaps President Trump’s planned immigration speech should be delayed so that truth monitors can go through and edit it before it’s aired to the American people. CNN and some other networks made a big production on Monday about whether or not they would air the speech at all, but in the end, decided they will run the president’s remarks live.

 

 

DON LEMON: But let’s talk about news because you talked about the President’s address that we’re going to carry. It’s tough, and this is, I think, maybe the first time — I would imagine. Listen, I haven’t been in news for that long, almost 30 years, but not that long. That network presidents and executives have to wonder should they carry it live, should they do a live fact-check. How do you handle this because you’re giving the president of the United States — which he should be given the bully pulpit, he owns it. But you’re giving him the opportunity to speak to the United States unfettered—to speak to the people of the United State and this President has a problem with the truth. So what do you do?

 

CHRIS CUOMO: You let him speak, and then you hold him to account. You know, I’m old enough to remember, D. Lemon, back in 2014 when then-President Barack Obama —

 

LEMON: About executive action.

 

CUOMO: Yeah, but here was the difference. They were savvy. Axelrod, we’ll have to talk to him about this. They didn’t ask the networks for time. This time the White House has asked for time. So they made the decision, the broadcasts, not to carry President Obama talking about the 2014 executive actions. But he didn’t ask for the time. So this time the White House did. He’s getting the time. I think that’s the right move. I know a lot of people are upset about it. I hear you. I read my Twitter feed. I get it. But I think it’s also the right thing to do. And it’s the right thing to do to check him and that’s what we’ll do.

 

LEMON: Listen, I’m not saying that we shouldn’t do it, but do you think it should be — I don’t know — a delay of some sort, and then you can — because people believe it. The President will say what he has to say. People will believe it whether the facts are true or not. I guess that’s the chance you take with any president.

 

CUOMO: Yeah.

 

LEMON: But this one is different. And then by the time the rebuttals come on, we’ve already promoted propaganda possibly, unless he gets up there and tells the truth.

 

CUOMO: He has his right to make the argument to the American people. And by the way, wanting barriers along the border is not propaganda.

 

LEMON: No, no, no.

 

CUOMO: It’s not immoral. It’s not wrong.

 

LEMON: The facts about that, though, who wants it, who doesn’t, how much it actually does protect. Like you said, it’s not a panacea it’s not a cure-all, there are other aspects, other technologies that go along with that.

 

CUOMO: 100 percent, and that’s our job. I have no problem with this. I see no problem with this. I believe that fears of people saying that, you know, “you should limit the exposure of this president to the American people.” I dismiss that notion entirely. I think that is anathema to American political exchange.

 

LEMON: Wait, wait, wait.

 

CUOMO: I’m not saying you’re calling for it. I’m saying when I hear it, that’s what I think.

 

LEMON: No, I understand. I don’t think limiting it. I do think — and I said this before. I do think the strategy or whatever it is that you did in the past is different with this President because — or this administration. They will call for a briefing or a press conference or whatever, and then not answer any questions and then just promote something politically, not take questions, and maybe at the last second, like he did with President Obama — President Obama was not born in, you know, Africa, then he goes away and doesn’t take any questions. Or like they did last week, the stunt in the briefing room.

 

I just think you have to be more strategic and more responsible to the viewer with this administration because it doesn’t matter. We always say, it doesn’t matter who’s first. It matters who’s accurate, right? If we get it right. I think we should apply the same parameters that we do with that. We want to be accurate. We don’t have to be first. We can monitor what the President is saying, monitor what’s being said in the briefing room. And then if it’s newsworthy, if they’re taking questions about a topic that’s important, then we can get to that topic, we can go there. We can break in and say, “listen, Sarah Huckabee Sanders is taking questions about the border wall right now. Let’s go.” But if it’s a political stunt, why do we even have to do it and, I don’t know, just expose the viewer and the American people to propaganda?

They were savvy. … They didn’t ask the networks for time. THE COMPLICIT MEDIA DID WHAT EVER OBAMA OR HILLARY WANTED THEM TO DO.This time the White House has asked for time. So they made the decision, the broadcasts, TO CONCEAL(now ot to carry)President Obama talking about the 2014 executive actions. But he didn’t ask for the time. So this time the White House did. He’s getting the time. I think that’s the right move. I know a lot of people are upset about it. I hear you. I
Did you mean the free press concealed anything Obama did that might not play well with the public?

The media and the politicians did what other nameless faceless ( to the public) people told them to do. ‘And do not cross them, they have six ways to Sunday to get you.’ Trump is writing his own script. There’s your ‘crime’.

Lemon is so easily described from Romans 1:

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Romans 1:18‭, ‬21‭-‬21‭, ‬24‭, ‬28‭-‬31 KJV

Don Lemon, the bitter little fruit, is propaganda! We need an end to backwards world. Evil is evil, good is good! Tired of MSM saying President Trump is lying when everything they say and do is the real lie. Enough is enough! If I were grotesquely wealthy I’d sue these traitors out of existence. Don Lemon says white males are terrorist and so on, but his boyfriend is a white man! Go figure that logic.

The progressive liberal mind doesn’t lie. They truly believe it’s truth, they believe every word they speak, and always see the Right as the liars and angry people etc.

You can’t reason with their minds. You can’t explain or show reality of truths or facts, it’s impossible for them to grasp.

If you were to show them face to face any truths you see, they won’t see it and quickly spin it around and change the subject, leaving your head spinning???

They are Fools and “NO” one can convince a fool, all you do is become a greater fool yourself trying to convince a fool.

So I think maybe don should STFU does he really just talked about censorship BY the media? Maybe he should remember his “God” President obama saying “If you like your doctor you can keep or doctor” when he accuses the President of lying.

WTF?

I have concerns about the steel slat barrier. We’ve all watched illegals climb up slatted barriers that are already in place along the Southern border. The proposed sharp tops can easily by defeated.

So, I think there will still be a lot of illegals going over the barriers, though we won’t have nearly the number coming across the border as now.

I think the border patrol officers have figured that out and have decided that is preferable to a wall that reduces the number of crossers to near zero. That way, we still need as many agents as we do now. It’s a jobs issue.

But, between a border with slatted barriers all along it, or no more barriers than we have now, I vote for slatted barriers.
