CNN 1 AT&T 0

May 12, 2019

A little more than a month ago, AT&T’s purchase of TimeWarner was finalized. That acquisition gives a telephone company access to big bucks in entertainment, streaming media and news and information.

One of the businesses that AT&T acquired was Left-of-center CNN. CNN is for Progressive “journalists” what Liberty University is for political conservatives–“Home.”

Unfortunately, the telephone executives in charge of WarnerMedia are from the American Southwest and MidWest, not the Left coast, and they feel in their bones that the tilt at CNN needs balance.

So, John Stankey, the Midwestern fella in charge of WarnerMedia, has made some changes that are visible to some viewers of CNN. Nothing dramatic, but there are subtle differences, namely Republican officeholders are interviewed.

Balance is good, but there is balance and the appearance of balance. Witness yesterday’s interview of Florida Congressman Ted Yoho by weekend anchor at CNN, Christi Paul.

Christi Paul is a contender for the Tokyo Rose award that I began to give to Leftist female “journalists” in February of last year. The current “Winner,” Mika Emilie Leonia Brzezinski, a shrill voice heard too often on MSNBC”s “Morning Joe,” may now be displaced by Christi Paul.

Apparently, Ms. Paul got the news from Mr. Stankey that CNN needs balance, so she interviewed Ted Yoho about critical national security issues.

My former office in Gainesville, Florida was just down the street from Cong. Yoho’s constituent office, so I got to know this Ocala veterinarian. When you were concerned that your horse might go lame, Ted Yoho was the man to see. He was good with sick and hurt animals, and everyone liked him.

If your boss tells you to introduce balance at CNN, Ted Yoho is the perfect person to put on camera and interview him about the Mullahs in Teheran, Vladimir Putin and trade with Communist China.  As intended, Ted looked like a dummy and Christi Paul looked as good as ever as she sent AT&T a message: “Don’t screw with CNN’s crowd of Leftists.”
