CNN’s new leadership declared that they want to end the biased journalism that has been a hallmark of CNN over the past few decades.
It sounds like Don Lemon is having a little bit of an argument about the idea of being an objective and impartial journalist, something he doesn’t know how to do. Because he believes Republicans are a threat to society, he doesn’t believe it’s fair to be “fair”.
Hear his bizarre rant and witness the absurdity and lunacy.
Bitter Don Lemon lashes out on-air seemingly against new CNN boss Chris Licht as the “people who are in charge of what we…the American press puts out” and decries the desire to treat GOP fairly.

We sit around talking about these things, and we want to give false equivalences to Democrats and Republicans. This is not the situation we are in right now. Republicans are doing something very dangerous for our society, and we must acknowledge it. Lemon stated that Americans must recognize that journalists are doing something that is very dangerous to our society.
We can’t pretend that Republicans are a good party. Let’s hear what they have to say. There are many questions to be answered about the past president of the United States and why they continue to allow his antics to continue for so long. He isn’t accountable. They don’t speak out. They have to answer for it. They have to answer why they are there, regardless of whether or not they agree with abortion rights. They must answer those questions if they are to appear on CNN.
Part of this is in keeping with the Democratic effort to demonize Republicans in an Alinsky-like effort to boost their chances in the next midterm elections.
Another part of the story, the funniest part, is that Lemon, CNN’s leader, has made a public hissy fit about wanting to return to journalism. He allegedly wants to be objective and not just sell the lemon-flavored swill he has been selling for years. Lemon appears to be telling his bosses, “You’re wrong,” “I’m right” and “Republicans — half the country” are all he is saying. Don, this is nonsense. If you want to raise a red flag and tell your bosses you are failing at your job, you can keep going.
It seems unlikely that Don’s new bosses will like his rant. One has to wonder if there is a coming of age. This is one way to improve your network.
The other side of this story is the absurdity of the claim. He wanted to paint all of the GOP with this ridiculous claim that a few extremists were involved in a three-hour riot.
The Democrats are now embracing all sorts of extremist ideas and seem to be doing all they can to destabilize the country’s norms. They advocate for the end of the electoral college, packing Court, eliminating the filibuster so that there is no minority opinion and they control everything and even encourage intimidation of Supreme Court justices. This isn’t just random extremists. That’s the Democratic Party, right there. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi came to the aid of the Portland rioters who attacked the federal courthouse. The federal agents who were responding to the attack on her called themselves “storm troopers” because they tried to grab rioters. She was arrested after they saw them and took them to the police station. Was there any concern about the attack against democracy?
Don Lemon, who defended Antifa, called it “Anti-fascist.” He downplayed the BLM/Antifa protests that lasted months and caused many deaths, injuries, and homes to be destroyed, and compared them to the Jan. 6 riot of three hours. Lemon said that a “shoe can’t be replaced” and suggested that people who compared the Riots to reality were “not operating in real life.”
Secoriea Turner was not killed by Republicans, Don. And any other victims. She is not a shoe and she was not among the people who were killed in the Antifa/BLM riots. This video will forever remind me of the pain and the emptiness that I saw on her mother’s face and her father’s faces. This is what I think of when I think of “extremism”.
“They say Black Lives Matter. You killed your own.” Secoriya Williamson, father of 8-year-old Secoriea Turner, addressed the public during a press conf. today after his daughter was shot and killed last night while riding in a car w/ her mother in Southeast Atlanta. @11AliveNews pic.twitter.com/odowRbSXsq
