Alisyn Camerota of CNN, a biased “news” network that publishes false reports on a regular basis, tried Thursday morning to pressure a Biden administration official into punishing conservative news outlets.
Speaking with White House communications director Kate Bedingfield, she first smeared the news networks that had openly and unbiasedly reported on the allegations of irregularities and fraud surrounding the 2020 presidential election.
“I was struck by something that President Biden said yesterday in his inaugural speech. ‘There are truths and there are lies.’ … and I heard that as a direct shot at some of the media companies that lied about the election results. We know who they are. They’re right-wing companies,” she said.
She meant companies like Fox News that addressed and scrutinized allegations of irregularities and fraud instead of burying them like CNN.
Note that CNN is the same network that eagerly gave credence three years ago to an absurd allegation of gang rape involving Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. It’s also the same network that presented disgraced, convicted attorney Michael Avenatti as a potential future presidential candidate.
After finishing her smear, Camerota then challenged Bedingfield to punish networks like Fox.
“And so if they continue to engage in lies, something that he is trying to combat, what is your communications strategy. Will you deny those networks any interviews? What happens if they revert to form immediately?” she said.
Camerota’s desire for censorship against those legitimate news agencies that broach stories that CNN dislikes comes as no surprise. In recent weeks, CNN’s “journalists” have clamored loudly for the silencing and censorship of conservative voices.
The irony is that CNN itself is a hotbed of perpetual fake news.
Here’s just one example from the same day that the interview above aired:
This is so transparently false, and a huge insult to thousands of people that have been working 24/7 to make the vaccine and current distribution happen.
There have been almost 36 million doses distributed to the states. Over 17 million shots administered by the states. https://t.co/eNK9Eiho0k

This is indisputably false. We are currently doing about 1M vaccinations per day. Biden and his team have promised 100M in 100 days. In other words, just to keep the current pace of what allegedly represents “no plan”. pic.twitter.com/s8bzPWdNbn

Here’s another lie — this one from this past weekend:

The CNN “journalist” who “reported” this particular lie proceeded to block all of the legitimate journalists who rightly called him out on his nonsense reporting.
Case in point:
Did you hear about the Trump supporter arrested with the fake inaugural credential? False.
CNN’s Jim Sciutto spreads one final bit of media misinformation pre-Biden. Then, when I pointed it out, instead of deleting it, he blocked me. @FourthWatch:https://t.co/UskP4P6lx5 pic.twitter.com/fqQ6Vtz52S

The interview Thursday continued with Bedingfield providing a vague non-answer answer in which she said the administration will “think about and factor in” when conservative outlets refuse to publish their preferred narratives.
“Now, obviously, if media companies are willfully lying or are not carrying forth straightforward, honest information from the president when we make him available or from administration officials when we make them available, of course, that’s something we’re going to think about and factor in,” she said.
It’s not clear what that means, though if Biden has any intention of following the path of former President Barack Hussein Obama, it may not bode well for journalists.
During Obama’s tenure, journalists who dared to challenge his administration faced some of the worst abuses in American history, as documented in an op-ed by The San Diego Union-Tribune published in late 2018.
“Obama’s administration prosecuted three times as many cases targeting whistle-blowers and leakers than all previous administrations combined. It said there was probable cause that a Fox News reporter was a ‘co-conspirator’ in a plot against the U.S. government because of his attempts to gather information about North Korea’s nuclear arsenal,” the board wrote.
“It secretly scoured the phone records of nearly 100 Associated Press reporters and editors for two months, which an editorial in The New York Times characterized as ‘a fishing expedition for sources and an effort to frighten off whistle-blowers.’ And in 2014, according to AP, the Obama administration broke its own record for censoring government files or refusing to provide files sought under the Freedom of Information Act.”
CNN, a loyal supporter of the Democrat Party that functioned as “Democrat State Media” during Obama’s term in office, was spared any of these abuses.
And now, with another Democrat in office, it appears the network is itching to see these abuses revived once again against its competitors and enemies.
