CNN host Brian Stelter announced Sunday that the network will ‘live fact check’ the Republican National Convention, prompting critics to ask why the network didn’t do the same during the snore fest that was the Democratic National Convention.
Stelter declared that because there will likely be a “stream of disinformation” at the RNC this week, CNN will “cut away” from the event as and when it needs to correct GOP claims.
Stelter also hilariously slammed other networks for being biased.
“There is an asymmetry in our media…where Fox is off there on the right in ways that other networks are not, in the middle or on the left,” Stelter said, further claiming that “one side” lies “a whole lot more than the other.”
“SHOULD TV NETWORKS AIR RNC IN FULL?” @BrianStelter advanced rationale for nets not to: “Television nets are going to have interesting choices to make…about whether to cut away if there’s this stream of disinformation happening live.” Promises CNN will cut in w/ “fact checks. pic.twitter.com/7GBgDSdiaI

Many were quick to highlight the sheer hypocrisy of Stelter’s tantrum:

Did @CNN cut away from DNC with “objective” fact checks?

Who didn’t see this coming from this clown? Stelter’s job is to make the media the center of attention. And then no one moans louder when people he doesn’t like gives him that attention. https://t.co/OJrGOJoBY5

Indeed, before the RNC has even begun, CNN has been working to spread misinformation about those speaking at the event, describing former Covington High School student Nick Sandmann as a person who “sued major networks over a viral video,” and the McCloskeys as a couple who ‘waved guns at protesters’:

CNN just described Nick Sandmann as:
“sued major media outlets over viral video”
Isn’t it nice how CNN didn’t include how they slandered Sandmann and had to pay him untold amounts?

Sandmann noted recently that he will use the opportunity at the RNC to burn the leftist media:
The left is mad I decided to speak because it’ll be the first time I testify about the media.

Four Months Later: Pelosi Condemns Rioting
“It’s what happens when you realise your internal poll numbers are through the floor”
Almost four months after the worst rioting and looting in history took hold in practically every major city in the US, the majority of which are run by Democrats, Nancy Pelosi finally said something about it.
“We support peaceful demonstrations. We participate in them. They are part of the essence of our democracy. That does not include looting, starting fires, or rioting,” Pelosi said Thursday, adding “They should be prosecuted. That is lawlessness.”
Only took her nearly 4 months to make this statement. https://t.co/rUt9OgKUbm

Note, that Pelosi did not mention BLM or Antifa, or name any group responsible for the destruction.
Many expressed the same theory about why Pelosi suddenly decided to address the matter:

Indeed, a series of new polls reveals that the majority of Americans believe there is a war being waged against police officers, and that support for the ‘black lives matter’ movement has dropped even further, with many more now seeing little distinction between the movement’s ‘protests’ and violent riots.
Senator Kennedy: ‘There Are Times When I think Pelosi Has Eaten Tide Pods’
Says Speaker is “bone deep down to the marrow foolish”
GOP Senator John Kennedy used a startling cultural reference to portray his belief that believes Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is crazy, saying that he often thinks she has ‘is one of those people who tried Tide Pods’ laundry detergent.
Appearing with Sean Hannity, Kennedy was addressing Pelosi’s obsession with the $3.4 trillion coronavirus bill.
“Sean, with respect, there are times, particularly recently, when I think Speaker Pelosi is one of those people who tried Tide pods,” Kennedy hilariously stated.

“I want you to think about what she proposed today, this is what the speaker is threatening to do,” he continued, adding “She is threatening to keep the House Democrats in session and prevent them from going home and running for reelection unless the Senate Republicans agree to the speaker’s $3.4 trillion coronavirus bill.”
“On the one hand we can vote for Pelosi’s $3.4 trillion bill or we can agree to allow her to put the House Democratic majority into jeopardy. That’s just bone deep down to the marrow foolish,” Kennedy urged.
Kennedy further emphasised that Nothing is going to get done while the Democrats refuse to back down over something that is never going to come to fruition.
“Senator Schumer and Speaker Pelosi aren’t going to agree to anything until we agree to spend a trillion dollars bailing out New York and California and that’s not going to happen in your or my natural life,” Kennedy added.
Kennedy’s assessment of Pelosi’s sanity comes on the heels of Mad Money Host Jim Cramer calling Pelosi “crazy Nanncy” right to her face, before instantly apologising:
Jim Cramer: “What deal can we have, Crazy Nancy? I’m sorry, that was the president. I have such reverence for the office. I would never use that term …”

Report: Biden Lawyers Up In Preparation For “Extended Legal Battle” Election
Democrats are not going to accept the election result if Trump wins
The New York Times is reporting that Joe Biden has hired hundreds of lawyers, including two former solicitor generals, and has created an entire legal division to fight an extended battle after the election.
The report notes that Bob Bauer, a former White House Counsel under Obama will help oversee the operation, with Donald Verrilli Jr. and Walter Dellinger, the two former solicitors general, heading up Biden’s “special litigation” unit:

The report also notes that Biden has employed hundreds of independent law firms, with former Attorney General Eric Holder serving as a liaison between them and the campaign.
The stated aims of the unit are to “combat voter suppression,” “guard against foreign interference,” as well as ensuring “voters cast their ballots correctly.”
“There are some unique challenges this year,” Bauer told the the Times, adding that “We’re not going to get caught up in alarmist rhetoric they [the Trump campaign] are using to scare voters.”
“The constant return to the issue of fraud is itself a voter suppression tool,” he added.
The move plays into the Democratic narrative that Biden will win the election over a long drawn out period, and that President Trump will try to claim a quick victory and even refuse to leave the White House.
The narrative has been pushed hard by the likes of the Clintons, who have repeatedly urged Biden not to concede defeat under any circumstances.
In reality, new polls indicate that Trump has a huge lead:
This also jives with the paltry numbers seen attending Biden rallies:
All indications are that Trump will win on election day, yet the Democrats will refuse to accept the result:
