Last night on his show, Tucker Carlson revealed that sources very close to CNN told him the network has orders to discredit Donna Brazile in order to protect Team Clinton.
If this is true, I think it’s a safe bet that Hillary Clinton is sinking.
And CNN, like the orchestra from the Titanic, will keep playing a lilting waltz as her fortunes go down.
Sure, most Democrats might be crowing “Country over Party!” — not that they mean it.
But at CNN they’re sticking with “Clinton über alles!”
As an aside, this is kind of an “I told you so.” Here’s what I wrote the other day:
There are too many trails that would lead back to them for Donna to be a candidate for “Arkancide.”
Instead, I think they will settle for marginalizing and professionally destroying Donna Brazile.
And here’s what Tucker said last night (hat tip the Daily Caller):
“According to highly informed sources we spoke to – highly informed – top management at CNN directed its employees to undermine Brazile’s credibility. Anchors and producers were vocally offended by her attacks on their friends, the Clintons. If you’ve been watching that channel, you may have noticed CNN’s anchors suggesting that Donna Brazile cannot be trusted, precisely because she took part in efforts to break the primaries for Clinton.”
This seems like a particularly stupid plan of attack, if you want my opinion.
While it’s true that Brazile gave Team Clinton the questions. It is equally true that Team Clinton happily took them.
In other words, neither party comes out of this smelling like a rose.
But the fact that CNN is under strict instructions to continue shielding Hillary Clinton does make me wonder.
Are they doing it because Clinton is still very powerful within the Democrat Party structure?
That seems unlikely to me.
It’s probably more plausible, given both Hillary’s and CNN’s history, that this need to shield Hillary is because the SS Clinton is taking on water.
I think CNN is fully aware of just how damaging the information in Brazile’s book really is.
The Clintons have a long history of smearing anyone who threatens their wealth, power or position.
Just ask Paula Jones, Linda Tripp, Kathleen Wiley or Juanita Broaddrick. Actually, they may be the only people you can ask because everybody else is dead.
CNN chose to become part of the Clinton smear team during the election.
And their willingness to protect Hillary in the face of mounting problems is already well known.
Keep in mind that when Hillary dropped like a sack of potatoes on September 11, 2016, it was CNN that quickly played Public Relations Firm on her behalf.
They were the ones who assured us that there was nothing to see here. She just had pneumonia. So move along.
Trust me. They knew just how bad that collapse was for the Clinton campaign. So they did their part – like the faithful orchestra on the Titanic – and played a happy tune as Hillary sunk to the pavement.
To me, knowing CNN is ordering its on-air talent to dismiss Brazile is a great big red flag.
Maybe it’s a gut thing, but I get the feeling Hillary Clinton’s troubles run far deeper than what Brazile has revealed over this past week.
In other words, Donna Brazile’s book may just the tip of the iceberg.
