CNN passive aggressive towards OANN

During the coronavirus briefing today, I heard a question from OANN and noticed that CNN did not pan to the reporter. The camera stayed focused on Trump the whole time.

If it was just the one time I could brush it off, but I've noticed this before.

I guess they don't want to be the booster rocket to Chanel Rion's rising star?

1. Why would anyone want to promote a fake news

website like OANN? They are a fringy rightwing propaganda group that specializes in praising trump. They are worse than Fox. Don't support them.


Their reporter is not a "rising star", she's a Trump activist who was booted out of the White House briefing room for flagrantly violating social-distancing rules, placing other reporters at risk.

This is not a good person that you're praising.

8. I'm no fan of the OANN and offer no such praise

Sometimes sarcasm gets lost on forums I guess.

I am observant though. I notice these odd little details. There must have been a directive from the top on that one.

2. Maybe they're concerned about a "panty peek"...

... if it was a female OANN reporter?

3. OANN isn't a news network. The fact that anyone in America thinks that it is is a damning indictment

of American education and intelligence.

5. Neither is Fox "news", but they sure have turned almost 1/2 of a great country

into a cult of ignorant, hyped up, gun-toting yahoos.

7. That much damage was hardly done by Fox alone. There's a whole bubble of insanity that feeds itself,

and Fox covers up their total lack of credibility by constantly saying how credible they are. You know, the typical right wing playbook.

4. CNN's Standards and Practices does not allow them to broadcast fellatios.

There may be children watching.

9. The OAN reporter has often been attending these things without permission from the press association

That's why you sometimes see her standing in the back. It may be that the pool video is trying to not give her coverage on those days she's not supposed to be there.
