Many Americans no longer consider CNN a news network.
Sean Hannity declared journalism is dead.
And Sean Hannity destroyed CNN with a major ultimatum.
As Great American Daily reports:
Last spring Donald Trump declared that the coronavirus originated in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Dr. Fauci and the corporate media—led by CNN—slammed Trump as a conspiracy theorist and claimed the virus jumped from bats to humans in Wuhan wet market.
But as the evidence piled up, the corporate media did an about-face and tried to pretend like it took the lab leak theory seriously from the start.
In fact, CNN contributor and New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman went so far as to claim that it was Donald Trump’s fault the media didn’t cover the lab leak origin story as aggressively as they should have.
Sean Hannity was having none of this.
On his Fox News program, Hannity ticked off all the evidence collected that made the lab leak theory not just possible, but probable.
“The new, compelling evidence that COVID-19 originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. You know, the lab that studied deadly viruses? From cell phone data showing a potential shutdown at the lab in the fall of 2019, reports of hospitalized workers in November 2019, China’s silencing of journalists and doctors and other whistleblowers. We have long now covered the very real possibility that the Wuhan lab was the origin, was the source of COVID-19. But during the Trump administration, so-called journalists, so-called fact-checkers, the media mob in general, they called this a debunked conspiracy theory,” Hannity told his audience.
Hannity blamed the corporate media for holding such hatred for Donald Trump that they regurgitated Communist Chinese propaganda about the virus originating in nature.
The popular Fox News host noted no corporate media member apologized to Trump.
“[The] abusively biased… media mob just hated Trump so much that you were willing to push Chinese propaganda from the World Health Organization to try and make Donald Trump look stupid… I’ll say it once again – Journalism in America is dead, it’s buried. And the great irony, every single one of these media mob outlets, all of them, they’re the ones that peddled in the massive Trump-Russia conspiracy theory lies. They spread the lies for three long years. They have never been held accountable, they never apologized, they never corrected the record,” Hannity added.
Hannity—as well as millions of Trump supporters—grant no credibility to the corporate media.
One of Hannity’s most famous sayings is “journalism is dead.”
Maggie Haberman going on CNN and admitting that reporters rejected the lab leak theory because Trump supported it and that they worried proving Trump right would help him win re-election goes to show just how right Hannity is.
