CNN Accidentally Allows Someone To Tell The Truth On Air

Less than a week after CNN scrambled to do damage control when their chief medical correspondent was wrecked by Joe Rogan over Ivermectin lies, the network may have another fire to put out...



Indeed, just days after anchor Don Lemon tried to 'networksplain' Rogan's argument, host Brian Stelter made the mistake of allowing former NYT Editor Bari Weiss on air to discuss examples of why the world has gone mad.

Stelter's first mistake, of course, was having Weiss on his show.

His second mistake was assuming she didn't have receipts when she said the world has gone mad.

"Where can I start? Well, when you have the chief reporter on the beat of COVID for The New York Times talking about how questioning or pursuing the question of the lab leak is racist, the world has gone mad.

When you're not able to say out loud and in public there are differences between men and women, the world has gone mad.

When we’re not allowed to acknowledge that rioting is rioting and it is bad and that silence is not violence, but violence is violence, the world has gone mad," Weiss said.

"When you're not able to say the Hunter Biden laptop is a story worth pursuing, the world has gone mad.

When, in the name of progress, young school children, as young as kindergarten, are being separated in public schools because of their race, and that is called progress instead of segregation, the world has gone mad. There are dozens of examples."

Stelter's third and final mistake was asking Weiss "who" is to blame?

People that work at networks like, frankly, like the one I’m speaking on right now, who try and claim that it was racist to investigate the lab leak theory,” Weiss shot back, adding later that CNN and the MSM's actions were "disinformation by omission."

Watching Stelter's face alone is worth the price of admission.

It's because Trump and his followers repeatedly refer to Covid-19 as Kung Flu. It doesn't matter whether it came from a lab or the exotic animal trade. It looks like vendors and farmers may have falsified permits for animal in the markets. The Chinese authorities couldn't find one for bats or pangolins but found that all of the permits for exhibits' animals were illegal. Local authorities are probably at fault as they were also slow in responding to controlling the virus spread, forcing the central government to deploy the army to lock down Wuhan.

If you go around flinging racist epithets, you've pretty exposed your true nature and you have no right to complain about it. We're not on playgrounds flinging insults. Adults are expected to think and behave accordingly.

Some people are severely ignorant enough to attack all Asians as we saw before.

A lot of the news material is essentially clickbait targeted at generating revenues from people who have a very high sensitivity to a certain point of view and look for affirmation or confirmation.

Ray Dalio says the workplace is never going back to the same way it was pre-Covid

“The future of the workplace is going to be characterized by probably two things — customization and technology. We’ve been given a gift to be able to rethink what we are doing,” Dalio said Wednesday at CNBC’s @Work Summit. “I don’t think we are going to go back to the old world.”

This guy is walking clickbait, always pontificating about things outside his narrow niche of macro trades. It's sad that QE-forever has made so many geniuses who can tell everyone what to do.

Colin Powell had been previously infected with Covid-19 and vaccinated as well

news.yahoo.com

Crucially, Powell suffered from a blood cancer known as multiple myeloma — precisely the kind of “immunocompromised” condition that experts have said from the start could lead to lower vaccine efficacy. In fact, the vaccines seemed to work especially poorly in patients afflicted with that type of cancer, even after a booster shot. (Powell also suffered from Parkinson’s disease, a neurodegenerative condition.)

Analysis: Bitcoin futures highlight some pitfalls for new ETFs

"There is no free lunch, however," said Martha Reyes, head of research at digital asset prime brokerage and exchange BEQUANT.

"An ETF based on futures is not ideal as there is a cost to rolling into the futures contracts, given contango ... translating into underperformance versus the underlying asset," she said.

Traders typically roll over futures to switch from the short-term contract that is approaching expiration to another contract further out in months. This rollover entails a cost.
