“We want to tell you a story about collusion, a real one — an actual collusion that’s currently in progress.”
This is how Tucker Carlson’s March 27 monologue began, and it’s a particularly stunning and entertaining address, even by Carlson’s very high standards.
He began by pointing out this past weekend the two-year investigation into President Trump and associates found no collusion with Russia. “This was very good news for America–we don’t have a spy in the White House. But it was apocalyptic for the Democratic Party and their press agents in the news media.”
Having invested everything into the collusion delusion, the left was stunned, and they remain numb.
“Befuddled politicians stammered on television, trying to figure out what to say about the news,” Carlson said. “Viewers of liberal media outlets didn’t want to hear anything about it. Huge numbers of them just quit watching immediately. On Tuesday night, CNN’s 8 p.m. show lost nearly 50 percent of its viewers.”
Catastrophic. What to do? … Well, Nancy Pelosi, being the wizened sage and leader of the party stepped up and her kingdom of sycophants dutifully listened.
“On Monday, just hours after the collusion story collapsed, Pelosi announced that the Democratic Party would be switching gears.” Carlson continued, “Going forward, Democrats would focus intently on health care, just like she disingenuously claimed they always had.
“‘We’ve never taken our focus away,’ she said. ‘I hope that it focuses the press on these issues.'”
The facts of how quickly the media turned their attention and the attention of their remaining viewers to health care are mind-blowing.
“At CNN,” Carlson reported, “they were paying close attention to every word Pelosi uttered. To Jeff Zucker and the anchors who work for him at CNN, Pelosi isn’t just a politician, she’s the leader of the party — their party. The party under whose banner Zucker has said he may someday run for office.
“When America’s most powerful Democrat speaks, CNN listens with pen in hand. These are marching orders, and the network swung into action immediately. The rundowns of every primetime show were scrapped and rebuilt. Gone were the segments about office towers in Moscow and Carter Page’s spying and Don Jr. going to prison. In their place, long editorials about health care. The Democratic health care plan is sensible and necessary, CNN told us. The Republican plan – cruel and heartless.”
Fox News and Carlson’s staff closely monitor the programming and news reports on rival news channels and networks. Carlson reported that, incredibly, every show between 7pm and midnight on Tuesday was crisply marching in step to Pelosi’s orders.
“Every single show talked about health care,” said Carlson, “and every single one channeled Nancy Pelosi’s views on health care. She could have been writing the scripts; maybe she was.
“Nobody hit that topic harder than an anchor called Chris Cuomo. Cuomo is the son of the former Democratic governor of New York and the brother of the current Democratic governor of New York. He spends a lot of time telling you what a committed journalist he is, probably because his instincts are so obviously political. On Tuesday night, the governor’s brother read his party’s talking points as if off a cue card.”
Don Lemon followed suit as did all the other CNN soldiers under Jeff Zucker. “The president says the GOP is going to be the party of health care,” Lemon said. “Then why is his Justice Department saying the Affordable Care Act should be struck down? The president has said again and again that he wanted to protect pre-existing conditions. Is this yet another lie from the president?”
“Yet another lie on health care,” Carlson said. “At no point did any of the anchors on CNN mention what was so glaringly obvious. In the space of just 24 hours, that channel went from the Russia conspiracy network to an extended advertisement for the Affordable Care Act, as written by Barack Obama. The viewers, those who remained, must have wondered what the hell was going on. Where’s my segment about how Don, Jr. is going to prison. I want to hear more about that. But no. On Pelosi’s orders, it was ‘Health Care Week’ on CNN.”
Remaining on message, Carlson reported, starting at 6am Thursday morning and all day long, CNN “regurgitated Pelosi’s talking points,” word-for-word about health care. “Republicans will make you sick, only Democrats will make you well. Every single show made that point. If you were stuck in the airport, it was like living in North Korea. A speaker bolted to the wall above your head blaring an endless loop of propaganda you can’t turn off.”
Other networks like MSNBC are on track with the same messaging, but CNN seems to be in the early lead for PAC of the year.
Carlson concluded, “CNN is not a news outlet, it’s a super PAC. It is running unregulated campaign ads 24 hours a day. Someone ought to call the FEC about it.”
There should be no doubt that most of the media is taking orders from Pelosi and the Dems. https://t.co/hkFstrvzW5

I believe that if real investigations were opened into this horrendous attempted coup that we would find that many in the media were complicit. They are true aiders and abbettors to the massive rampant corruption coming out of the Democrat party.???

Couldn’t agree more…@CNN is the propagandist arm of the Democrat party. Nothing more, nothing less… Prove me wrong.
