Seizing on the news that three CNN journalists responsible for a retracted story about an investigation into the ties between a Trump ally and a Russian bank had resigned, as well as a bogus James O’Keefe “sting” video purporting to show a CNN producer casting doubt on the network’s Russia coverage, Bernstein urged Trump to take swift action to put the network out of business.
“For anybody that is still watching CNN, shame on you,” Bernstein fumed. “Shame on you, because you are supporting communism.”
Bernstein—whose own stringent “editorial standards” allow him to proclaim that all Muslims should be eradicated, that John Podesta is a “serial murderer and hit man” who personally killed Seth Rich and that both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are secretly gay—blasted CNN for having absolutely “no editorial standards and guidelines.”
“You make the North Korean media look honest,” he said, “you bunch of creeps.”
“President Trump, please, pull CNN’s license,” Bernstein begged. “They do not need to be broadcasting anything. Nothing! There is no reason for CNN to be in existence. That place should be shut down for treason, for espionage, for sedition, you name it. I would love the see the Justice Department literally file complaints and lawsuits against CNN.”
