Far left journalist Jeremy Scahill teed off against CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, the mainstream media and military personnel for their coverage of the airstrike against Syria.
After President Donald Trump ordered the strike, that followed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad attacking his own people with chemical gas, Zakaria said Trump “became President of the United States” that day.
On Sunday, Zakaria again praised the president for “striking a blow against evil.”
Scahill, one of the founders of “The Intercept,” told CNN’s “Reliable Sources” that he found the coverage of the attack to be “atrocious.”
“CNN needs to immediately withdraw all retired generals and colonels from its airwaves,” he demanded before turning his attention to Zakaria and MSNBC’s Brian Williams.
“You know, Fareed Zakaria––if that guy could have sex with this cruise missile attack, I think he would do it,” Scahill said.
“Brian Williams seemed to just be in true love with the cruise missile strike in a despicable way, invoking Leonard Cohen’s name” he added.
Williams was roundly mocked on social media for describing the “beauty” of the missiles while quoting a Cohen song.
Scahill then lambasted CNN for having military personnel on its airwaves and called for them to be removed.
A view that host Brian Stelter called “extreme.”
“The fact is that when you talk about famous generals … I think that the American people deserve to know what was the private sector record of these individuals when it came to the weapons industry or profiting in the private sector off the proliferation of U.S. wars that happened in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and elsewhere,” he said.
“I appreciate the skepticism,” Stelter said. “I worry sometimes that it turns into cynicism.”
