If all of CNN were to burn entirely to the ground, taking all of its pundits and anchors with it, the world would have lost absolutely nothing of substantive value and would probably end up being a far better place. At least Fox News and MSNBC don't even pretend to be anything other than pseudo-partisan, corporatist shiatholes anymore. CNN is nothing but a cesspool of self-degradation. It's long since moved past pitiable and into the territory of outright, utter embarrassment.

That asshole Don Lemon?

At least that's what I thought I just read...

well no rational person believed him.  he wasn't exactly giving away State secrets or anything.

Lot of anger in that post.

Where did Don Lemon touch you?

I could have given him that heads up.

That's a different Don Lemon scandal.

That's hilarious.
Jussie?

So the police told a reporter info about an ongoing investigation. And this info was disseminated? Who could have seen that coming?

he was just trying to warn a brotha...

On the face, apparently, you need to read to the end of the story.
 
2021-12-07 11:14:56 AM  
If my friend had come into contact with law enforcement and I had the heads up they didn't believe him I would let him know unless I thought he was a danger to himself or others.

Prior law enforcement here. Everyone on the government side gets investigated for something at some point. Hard not to when anyone can submit anonymous complaints. We all always know. Unless it's some fed shiat from an action movie we all always know. From law enforcement to the court side.
 
2021-12-07 11:14:57 AM  
No surprise there.
 
2021-12-07 11:15:38 AM  
Did that asshole really think the cops bought his shiatty story from the get-go?

I don't know. Brianna Keller (is that her name?) she is very pretty to look at. Sometimes I put her on and "turn the sound down and say rude things."

In crime shows, usually the boss cop believes the framed suspect is guilty and that boss needs to get to the gym in 26 minutes.  The 95% of the remaining show has various plot twists and discoveries that point to multiple suspects and changing proof.  CNN ought to distance itself from fiction more.

Some shows actually have reporters imbedded in the investigation, who very often are suspected of the crime and annoying the cops.
 
2021-12-07 11:20:19 AM  
I think anyone who watched the video of the cops at his apartment or whatever could have come to that conclusion, he is still wearing the noose and the cop is like 'uh you want to take that off?' in this tone of sarcasm. You don't need don lemon to tell you that.

Assuming that plenty of folks around here still believe his story.

I came to point out the headline says "just days after Chris Cuomo was fired for helping his brother fight sex-pest claims".  Sex-pest claims?  What the fark, are they trying to play down sexual harassment?  Is this a common term for it?

When this story broke I called it. The detail that this uninjured man was still wearing the noose allegedly placed around his throat was so over-the-top ridiculous that had I been a cop I would have tried to talk him out of ruining his life by filing the report.

First thing that popped into my mind as well.

What gave him away is that he said he had no intention of calling the cops, yet he said he kept the noose on to show the cops what happened.  He said he only called the cops well after it happened and his manager talked him into it.

Well, that and everything else about the story.

A lot of people called it.

But if IIRC they were all racist, homiphobic bigots.

I feel like the problem is actually that Don Lemon won'ttouch him, and he so desperately wants to be held and caressed by Don Lemon.
 
2021-12-07 11:44:48 AM  
Wait...so a tv media star hires people to beat him up so that he gets more acting jobs and a tv news cable network broadcasts the story and one of the anchors, has a mutual interest in the story?

its like watering plants.

Even the weeds get some water.

I people watch. Can't stand looking at a tv screen in a waiting area when I can't hear the sound so I just sit there and people watch.

It is. They use the same phrase to describe Josh Duggar, the sex pest currently on trial for CSAM in the state of Arkansas where his father, Jim Bob Duggar, is running for state senate. The same sex pest Josh Duggar who molested his sisters and a fourth non-relative female over a span of three years (that we know of). This sex pest Josh Duggar, accused of possessing CSAM in the state of Arkansas, is the son of Jim Bob Duggar, who is running for state senate in a special election.
