The joke that may have lost John Kerry all his friends at CNN

Secretary of State John Kerry probably doesn’t have many friends left at CNN after the jab he delivered to the network at Saturday’s prestigious Gridiron Club dinner.

Although jokes and satire are a long-standing tradition at the annual dinner of “Washington’s most prestigious press group,” Kerry’s response to a question from CNN’s John King, though absolutely the truth, probably fell flat with the powers that be at CNN.

According to Dylan Byers from Politico:

During a humorous and well-received speech, Kerry, the evening’s headliner, said that CNN’s John King had asked if the former Massachusetts Senator was considering another presidential bid in 2016.

Kerry’s response: “I am out of politics — and based on the ratings, so is CNN.”

Ouch. And though rare to hear from it Kerry, the truth hurts.

    Since it is impossible to know who among us knows best, we trust the competitive efforts of many to help us see better ways of doing things.

    After finding out that Fox’s CEO is a muslim, I don’t watch any television news stations at all. When all Americans revolt at the lies we are told by the media, they will change their ways. I get all my news on the net. You should try it.
