CNN has spent four years going after Donald Trump nonstop.
With Joe Biden likely to become president, the so-called mainstream media are now going after people who supported Trump.
And one CNN host suggested Trump supporters were un-American for an insane reason.
CNN host Brian Stelter is supposed to serve as the network’s media watchdog, objectively assessing which stories the media got right and wrong.
However, his ironically titled show “Reliable Sources” is nothing more than a hate machine aimed at right-wing media platforms.
The target of Stelter’s latest ire was the app Parler, an alternative to Twitter that’s owned by conservative media personality Dan Bongino.
During a segment on his show, Stelter argued that conservatives and Republicans abandoning platforms like Twitter for Parler was bad for democracy.
It’s always a little amusing when @CNN worries people are going into their own partisan bubbles. (Lack of self-awareness????)

The lack of awareness of his own network’s left-wing bias while purporting to be an objective news channel is stunning.
Platforms like Parler wouldn’t even be necessary if Twitter didn’t have such a thick and pervasive left-wing bias.
The most stark example was the Hunter Biden laptop story that was openly suppressed by Facebook and Twitter.
Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said his platform was slowing the dissemination of the story, and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey blocked the spread of the New York Post’s article on the subject.
The Post article wasn’t even allowed to be shared through direct messages.
That’s just one data point of the censorship happening on Twitter.
Videos from Trump have also been blocked because they violated some arcane Twitter policy, but the rules aren’t fairly applied.
Several prominent conservatives have been banned from the platform for arbitrary reasons, and Twitter also controls which stories trend regardless of how popular they are.
Even left-wing feminist Meghan Murphy was banned from Twitter for tweeting, “Men aren’t women tho.”
Dorsey admitted in an interview with Joe Rogan that such a tweet fell afoul of the platform’s misgendering policy.
So stating a biological reality is considered a form of hate speech.
That’s why conservatives are flocking to Parler.
If Twitter can censor the president of the United States and the New York Post, anybody is fair game for the tech overlords.
