CNN certainly has a high opinion of itself, don’t they?
After months of bashing President Trump and doing their best to cause as much chaos in our country, they are now acting like the victim when they are called out for their diversionary tactics.
President Trump has been calling CNN fake news since they have chosen to only report half-truths and at times boldfaced lies. The media has been livid after being called out for their lies, and now they are going one step too far with their victim card. In a narcissistic op-ed was recently released by a Notre Dame professor explaining how members of the media should be treated as U.S. military men and women who risk their lives on a daily basis, you can imagine the outrage.
Here is more from Daily Wire:
In a bizarre CNN Op-Ed, a management professor at the University of Notre Dame compared the members of the media to the members of the U. S. military who risk their lives to preserve freedom.
“We thank soldiers for their service because they devote themselves to protecting our freedoms, and we should. But we should also thank the media for the same reason — especially when the stakes have never been higher,” reads the article, written by Notre Dame’s Joseph Holt.
Needless to say, this claim faced a lot of criticism, but none as much as from Marine veteran and deputy editor of The Daily Caller News Foundation, Dave Brooks.
Here is more from Daily Caller:
The op-ed, written by Notre Dame professor Joseph Holt and titled ‘The Press Isn’t The Enemy, It’s The Protector,” tried to compare members of the media with soldiers in the military.
“This professor wasn’t even talking about journalists who do put themselves in harm’s way. He was talking about White House reporters who go to the press briefings and instead of asking questions, they pull out a soapbox and deliver sermons until Sarah Sanders shuts them down,” Brooks said.
“Then they head to Twitter like it’s their personal diaries and make the stories about themselves,” he added. “To compare the two does a disservice to our service members and those men and women who signed up to protect the nation.”
Here are some more reactions:
This is weapons-grade nuts. Wonder what the @CNN Media team thinks about this comparing soldiers (who put their lives on the line to save us) and journalists. This is disgusting. https://t.co/uousJsbqF9

When my wife’s grandfather, a WWII Vet, was dying in hospice a few years ago, he was still clutching his M1, fighting the Germans in his mind. To compare the duties of the press to the lifelong sacrifices made by our military is detestable. https://t.co/8mj6mNP2IO

These people need to sit down and shut up already.
