CNN Guest Claims Trump May Be Responsible for 'Many More Million Deaths' Than Hitler or Stalin


CNN is the epitome of agenda-driven bias.

In fact, the company reveals its objective several times an hour — that is, to air anything that denigrates President Donald Trump.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that Trump never does anything worth criticizing. Neither am I against a robust discussion that is critical of one of his actions or policies.

But CNN needs to stop pretending it’s anything besides a mouthpiece for the Democratic Party.

CNN is a privately owned company. It can be a left-wing propaganda dumpster fire if it wants to be. But it needs to at least stop claiming it’s objective journalism.

Why do I think so poorly of CNN?

The first reason is that both my eyes and my ears are connected to my brain.

I don’t need another reason but I have one.

A more recent reason — and there are many, many, more — is Brian Stelter’s Sunday segment.

Do you think CNN should apologize for this segment?

During his show, “Reliable Sources,” Stelter was doing the incredibly difficult work of journalism by asking his guests, “how crazy is Donald Trump?”

“Calling Trump crazy hides the fact that we’re crazy for having elected him and even crazier for allowing his crazy policies to persist,” said guest Allen Frances, a former chairman of psychiatry at Duke University.

“Trump is as destructive a person in this century as Hitler, Stalin and Mao were in the last century,” Frances continued. “He may be responsible for many more million deaths than they were. He needs to be contained, but he needs to be contained by attacking his policies, not his person.”

At this point, Stelter called him out for this blatant lie.

I’m kidding.

Stelter said nothing and let his guest ramble on.

“20-45 million people were killed under the Mao regime, Hitler was responsible for the deaths of more than 20 million people,” Twitter account ‘The Reagan Battalion’ tweeted. “This segment is shameful.”

Stelter responded to being called out, claiming technical difficulties kept him from hearing the comment or he would have interrupted.

“I agree that I should have interrupted after that line. I wish I had heard him say it, but I was distracted by tech difficulties (that’s why the show open didn’t look the way it normally does, I had two computers at the table, etc.) Not hearing the comment is my fault.”
