OMG are they serious?! WaPo ‘white knighting’ for CNN is the most 2019 media thing EVER and we can’t stop laughing
Awww, poor CNN. They helped create an angry, divisive, even violent environment and NOW they don’t know how to deal with their own karma.
Yeah, they’ll have to forgive us if our ‘give a crap about poor CNN’ is broken.
And watching the Washington Post all but white knight for them is the most 2019 media thing ever:
CNN increasingly sees itself as subject to threats after incidents involving Cuomo, Lemon, Ryan https://t.co/FFSYtBSja8
— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) August 16, 2019
“We are living in a time where journalists are being confronted with orchestrated provocations on Sunday afternoons while out with their families, and shakedowns from people looking to make a quick buck,” the executive said. “All because of where they work and their commitment to holding those in power accountable. License to do so is being given from the highest levels of office in the country. It is dangerous, and it is wrong.”
CNN has come in for frequent criticism from Trump as “fake news” and an “enemy of the people.” In October, a Florida man, Cesar Sayoc, sent inoperative mail bombs to prominent Democrats and to CNN’s office in New York, prompting evacuation of its building. Sayoc, whose attorneys described him as an obsessive Trump follower who is mentally ill, was sentenced last week to 20 years in prison.
Notice they leave out how divisive and nasty CNN has been but what else would you expect from WaPo?
"Threats" they faced this week:@ChrisCuomo threatened to toss a guy down some stairs@donlemon sued for allegedly rubbing himself & shoving his hand in a guy's face@AprilDRyan's bodyguard stole a lib journalists' camera and roughed him up

Oh yeah, those poor CNN pundits.
Has CNN replied to all of these incidents?

Other than to defend Cuomo? Pretty sure they have not.
On the bright side, Cuomo cemented “Fredo” as his nickname-for-life
