Some lunatic is sending bombs to top Democrats and CNN.
CNN media critic Brian Stelter says, “Even as a media reporter, who looks inward every day, I don't want the story to be about us.”
He then spent all day yesterday making it all about CNN.
The network spent all day talking about the bomb sent to CNN and then also mentioned that bombs were also sent to Obama, the Clintons and George Soros.
Stelter said, “I specifically said I wasn't blaming Trump for the crimes of a madman.” Which makes us wonder, how does Stelter know it’s a man?
And while Stelter wasn’t blaming Trump, his boss Jeff Zucker was.
"There is a total and complete lack of understanding at the White House about the seriousness of their continued attacks on the media," he said. "The President, and especially the White House Press Secretary, should understand their words matter. Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that," Zucker said.
While we agree with Zucker’s statement, the same could be said for CNN.
On a daily basis CNN rages against the President and those on the right. Trump and Fox News rage against those on the left.
Neither side is clean on this.
Cable news is as much to blame for the division of this country as Donald Trump is. Blasting the other side as Brian Stelter, Don Lemon, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson and others do, is surely going to get people worked up. It takes just a few people that are not mentally stable to do something like mail bombs to people.
It’s just a matter of time before we see an act of domestic terrorism that will costs lives.
The blood will not only be on the hands of the President, but the cable news networks as well.
Maybe it is time that the cable news outlets take a step back from trying to divide this country.
