Chris Cillizza of CNN puts crosshairs on Trump

Normally, I'd say this isn't really that big a deal. Not very classy, to be sure. Not something I would expect from a professional and supposedly unbiased journalist working for CNN... oh, wait. I would expect it from a professional journalist working for CNN because CNN is about as biased as you can get.

But remember when the left went after Palin for putting "crosshairs" on a map of a Congressional district where Gabby Giffords was later shot by a crazy vaguely-left lunatic? And remember when an assassin tried to murder everyone at a Republican Congressional baseball team practice? Or Rand Paul's neighbor violently attacked him?

So, yeah, I'm pointing out this sort of BS when it happens. It's time the left lived up to the rules they have been trying to impose on us.

Major media is paid by government agencies for specific content

Those who have been paying attention have known this was true for some time in the realm of entertainment programming. If you ever wondered why so many children's shows have ham-handed anti-drug messaging, wonder no more: running an anti-drug storyline was good enough to tick a box and get money from the government, so of course everyone did. But a new revelation indicates that a similar situation exists for news programming:

Amber Lyon is an award-winning journalist who worked for CNN. She says while working at CNN she was ordered to report fake stories, delete unfriendly stories adverse to the Obama administration (like the Nick Robertson report), and construct stories in specific manners while working for the left-wing network. Why? According to Lyon CNN is paid by foreign and domestic Government agencies for specific content. [Emphasis added]

They are also paid by foreign governments to not air things, with an example at the link above. I can remember when CNN previously admitted to not reporting the truth from Baghdad while Saddam Hussein was in power.

And other "news" organizations are doing the same; a recent example has the anti-gun Joyce Foundation sponsoring news on gun control in the Minnesota Post, something they have done before.

The line between news, journalism, advertising, and government propaganda has disappeared completely.

UPDATE: Thanks to SaysUncle for the link. It's not that this surprises me, it's that we now have proof.

UPDATE: And From the Barrel of a Gun too.
