Call it the Clinton News Network… or the Crazy News Network.
By any name, CNN has become an absolute joke in the journalism community.
Forget policy, forget politics. Bash President Donald Trump and you get to appear on CNN.
This latest video, where CNN allowed a professor with crackpot conspiracies to go on air, PROVES why real Americans should never watch again.
In a Sunday appearance on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” Duke University psychiatry professor Dr. Allen Frances did the unthinkable.
Launching an insane attack against Trump’s mental fitness, Frances actually compared Trump to homicidal dictators Mao Zedong, Joseph Stalin, and… of course, Adolph Hitler (a favorite comparison of Democrats).
You can watch the video for yourself right here.
“Trump is as destructive a person in this century, as Hitler, Stalin, and Mao were in the last century,” Frances said with a straight face. “He may be responsible for many more million deaths than they were.”
Wait… what?! MILLIONS more deaths?
For the record, Hitler was responsible for 11 million deaths… Stalin was responsible for 20 million… and Zedong as many as 45 million.
Has Trump somehow been operating concentration camps and engaging in mass-scale genocide… with up to 45 million victims… under our noses? Apparently Frances believes so, but the rest of America must have missed it.
It’s the kind of grossly ignorant statement that should have Frances fired from Duke and blacklisted across all of academia. Ironically, Duke is located in North Carolina, a state Trump won in 2016.
Even worse, CNN hack and host Brian Stelter didn’t even question Frances’ ridiculous statement.
And after some major blowback on social media and from fellow journalists, Stelter seemed to realize his mistake and offered the lamest excuse imaginable.
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.

Of course, technical difficulties don’t explain all of the other times CNN has engaged in egregious behavior targeting Trump.
This is the network that made former Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti famous — that got Avenatti consideration to run for president — the same Avenatti currently awaiting trial on extortion charges!
This “Reliable Sources” (how’s that for an ironic name) clip is the latest proof that CNN can’t be trusted.
CNN is now devoted solely to Trump’s ruin, journalism be damned.
Given their ratings, the joke is on them.
