    Airports and the agony of watching CNN

    August 13, 2016
    By Silvio Canto, Jr.

    Over the last week, we traveled to a niece's wedding and had a chance to spend some time with my recently widowed mother. It was the kind of family quality time that we all yearn for...except for having to watch CNN at hotel lobbies and airports.

    On Tuesday night, the day so many at CNN thought that Mr. Trump had issued a call for NRA people to eliminate Mrs. Clinton, the panels at CNN were somewhere between silly and hysterical. It was the kind of selective outrage that we've come to love from liberals who went mute when far worse things were said about President Bush or V.P. Cheney.

    At one point, I looked around the gate, and nobody was watching...wonder why! I got so fed up that I was following the Rangers-Rockies game on my phone!

    On Wednesday, I reconnected with the world and found that CNN had dropped to third, which is a fancy way of saying that you are last in the cable news business. In other words, there are only three, so third means last.

    According to TV Newser, it was something like this:

    FNC: 2.035
    MSNBC: 1.407
    CNN: 807

    So even MSNBC, the laughingstock of cable news unless you think President Bush knew of the 9-11 attack in advance, beat CNN by quite a lot.

    My guess is that people watching MSNBC are so far gone that they are not even hearing the anti-Trump bashing. On the other hand, CNN reaches a lot of people at public places, and most of them just looked at the phones and prayed that the flight was not delayed.

    Maybe Mrs. Clinton will defeat Mr. Trump. It goes without saying that Mr. Trump has not helped himself much since clinching the nomination in Indiana, or over 90 days ago.

    At the same time, there is a point where media bias is so obvious that even the people forced to watch CNN at airports just look the other way and find something else to do with their lives.

    Let's look at the treatment of Mr. Mateen, the gay-basher, Taliban-sympathizer father of the Orlando terrorist. He showed up feet away from Mrs. Clinton at a rally, then endorsed her, and everybody at CNN was looking to blame it on staff. On the other hand, David Duke endorsed Mr. Trump, and you'd think it was the end of the world as we've known it!

    Then there is the latest email dump! Many in the media defend Mrs. Clinton by saying it was "staff" again. Whose staff are they? They work for Mrs. Clinton, who happened to be secretary of state at the time this was going on.

    Trump has work to do, but his enemies in the media are showing so much bias that a backlash in coming, and perhaps already underway.

    CNN is obsessed with defeating and destroying Donald Trump. The constant use of the term "dog whistle" when speaking of Mr. Trump is a certain turnoff.

    People in airports may be ignoring CNN---but this is often the business traveler. It is the college kiddies on the road trip circuit and pot foraging expeditions to legal pot states, that believe this garbage. But hopefully this dismay will spread. People often do take their cues from higher status persons.

    CNN was on in the waiting room at my Dr's office and it became so offensive, I waited in the reception area. I just couldn't listen to another minute of it.
