After a series of retractions, a damaging undercover video just released, and the ever-present trust issues, how do you think CNN should win back the trust of their viewers?
What would be the best way for them to look like a reliable and serious source of information?
They think using a puppet on a toddler show to promote an agenda is the best way…
Popular “Sesame Street” character Elmo sympathized with refugee kids in an interview Monday with CNN, remarking that they are just like kids in America.
Elmo was part of a panel including CNN reporter Clarissa Ward, Sherrie Westin from Sesame Workshop, and David Miliband from the International Rescue Committee.
“Did you find that the Syrian little girls and little boys were a lot like your friends here in America?” Ward asked Elmo.
“Yeah, they really were,” said the “Sesame Street” character. “It was very interesting because they like to play and learn just like Elmo and all of his friends at Sesame Street.”
Naturally, things eventually turned into a direct attack against Trump and his temporary travel ban:
Miliband also addressed the US Supreme Court’s decision to uphold parts of Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban and the President’s stance on refugees.
“It’s worth saying, perhaps especially today, that this country, the US, receives very few refugees and there’s a lot of fear and loathing being put out.”
During the strange video, CNN (and Elmo) failed to mention that the temporary ban is meant to improve vetting procedures for refugees from countries designated by the Obama administration as risky when it comes to terrorists.
They did not mention that most refugees would prefer to have stabilized safe zones in their region, rather than coming here.
They did not mention the terror risk involved in bringing refugee children over with adult family members.
They were just pushing a message that would have impressionable children think President Trump is a monster who cares nothing for people. What a new low, CNN. What a new low…
