CNN's Dylan "scoop machine" Byers writes a story for the network's website in which he talks about how the anchors at Fox News and Fox Business have thrown out the sticks to the facts anchoring and replaced it opinion and editorial about the Paris attacks.
Byers writes, "Their emotional statements have included fierce criticism of President Obama, zealous calls to military action and a robust anti-refugee stance.
While such editorializing is routine for primetime personalities like Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity, and from the network's stable of conservative contributors, it is a rarer thing for the Fox news anchors. Asked if the network had given anchors the green light to express their views on air, a Fox News spokesperson declined to comment."
Then SM (scoop machine) turns his attention to CNN's Jim Acosta and how he posed a question to President Obama in regards to ISIS.
"I think a lot of Americans have this frustration that they see that the United States has the greatest military in the world, it has the backing of nearly every other country in the world when it comes to taking on ISIS," CNN's Jim Acosta said to the president. "I guess the question is -- if you'll forgive the language -- why can't we take out these bastards?"
Byers writes, "A CNN spokesperson declined to comment on Acosta's framing of the question."
So let's get this straight...a CNN spokesperson refused to comment to a CNN Reporter.
That explains so much.
