Our Failed Media: CNN (part infinity)

Breaking CNN!

Last night, Sen. Professor Warren cut through CNN’s BS-framing of the question:

“Look, there are a lot of ways that we try to change our energy consumption, and our pollution, and God bless all of those ways. Some of it is with lightbulbs, some of it is on straws, some of it, dang, is on cheeseburgers, right? There are a lot of different pieces to this. And I get that people are trying to find the part that they can work on and what can they do. And I’m in favor of that. And I’m going to help and I’m going to support.

“But understand, this is exactly what the fossil fuel industry hopes we’re all talking about. That’s what they want us to talk about.

“This is your problem.” They want to be able to stir up a lot of controversy around your lightbulbs, around your straws, and around your cheeseburgers. When 70 percent of the pollution of the carbon that we’re throwing into the air comes from three industries, and we can set our targets and say, by 2028, 2030, and 2035, no more. Think about that. Right there.

“Now, the other 30 percent, we still got to work on. Oh, no, we don’t stop at 70 percent. But the point is, that’s where we need to focus. And why don’t we focus there? It’s corruption. It’s these giant corporations that keep hiring the PR firms that — everybody has fun with it, right, gets it all out there — so we don’t look at who’s still making the big bucks off polluting our Earth.”

CNN is such a dumpster fire.

    This response from Elizabeth Warren was masterful, and is why I get so pissed off when Progressives suggest that she should drop out of the race and leave a clear lane for Bernie Sanders.

      Warren is like most professional women in society today. Women who are all overly prepared with plans, intelligent and thoughtful yet have to hurdle the hypocritical and negative double standards that the worthless beltway media places on female progressive candidates. It doesn’t help when the purist ponies online trash her for changing her ideologies and political stances over time since Bernie has supposedly always championed progressive causes, but has been mainly ignored by the media and both political parties.

      She and Bernie are the two best candidates who will probably be shunned by both the DNC and the worthless beltway media for a neo-liberal hack like Biden to keep the horse race interesting and close. Biden sadly is unfortunately showing his age and isn’t the candidate needed to take on fat nixon.

    I like what Warren is saying. She seems to have real plans. I do worry if she can appeal to a big enough crowd to win. A big plus to her would be to hear the conservatives cry.

    She’s right as usual. The fossil-fuel industry knows that the days of convincing people (outside the irreducible minimum core of the most gullible ideological morons) that global warming is not happening, are pretty much over now. But they can still hope to make us waste our energy arguing about trivia for a few more years, instead of focusing on the real problem.

      Warren like Bernie, scares both the rich and the worthless beltway media as they know she has plans to shake things up by challenging the ‘masters of the universe’ by having them and others pay for their misdeeds with either regulations or increased taxation.

      Expect her to be shunned by both the DNC and the beltway media by early spring.

      Even Allstate (worst insurance company due to denial of valid claims – as a business model) recognizes climate change as a problem (although this ad doesn’t mention the actual words). Maybe insurance companies could be allies if they could just connect the dots between climate change and less profit for their stockholders.
