CNN International = Let’s
Trash America Network

Center for Individual Freedom, by Quin Hillyer

Basel, Switzerland: Abroad for the past eight days attending to family matters, I have had plenty of time to do various and sundry chores while CNN International aired in the background. It’s awful. It’s level of anti-U.S. bias is astonishing. Again and again its reports include small (and sometimes not-so-small) digs against the United States. Much of its coverage is of third-world horrors which, I guess, are indeed news, although the overall tone of lefty crusading is rather annoying. But almost any time the United States is mentioned, the tenor of the mention is negative.

Marriott´s rooftop war correspondent negative toward the US, I´m shocked. The amount of money we´ve spent on imports since Reagan began pushing free trade is staggering. In the tens of trillions. We´ve helped lift hundreds of millions out of extreme poverty. We´ve made countries prosperous. But we´re evil capitalists who don´t want to pay global climate taxes.

Gosh, between ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CBS, CNN and now CNN-I, it´s an awfully tough call to give any single one the title of "Trash America Network."

Let´s call it a tie and send them each a trophy.

The problem isn´t CNN - the problem is that the other international MSM "news" outlets make CNN seem positively pro-American and conservative. In terms of tone and content, the vast majority of the world has a choice between MSNBC and MSNBC. And that´s on a good night.

I read the article and I could not agree more with the author. It is all over Europe as well as Canada, Mexico, Central and South America. All this anti-America garbage. Some how we are all "evil" people...

Really? We have the First through Twenty-Seventh Amendments that guarantee our freedoms beyond any country in the world.

Please go to another country. Try to wear your mini-skirt, show your face, wear your hair long, high heels, bathe, use contraception, try divorce, not get raped by your brother, cousin, uncle or father and then get killed for "adultery".

Other than the US, all other countries are basically stuck in between the third and tenth world. Starting with Socialism and ending in Feudalism or Tribalism

The US has the best military, law enforcement, health care, education, tolerance to all people, affirmative action, 50% living off other people, low poverty and takes care of the rest of world through massive foreign aid and ginormous philanthropy.

Hey, if you want to hate the US, then we should close our wallet, business and travel. See how long you last...


Wait until some earthquate, tidal wave, tsunami (sp?), or some other natural disaster occurs...who are the first people on the scene? The Lithuanians, the Colombians, the Nigerians, the French or the Swedes?

Without our technology...the Russians and the Chinese would still be living in the tundra.

And without our freedoms, the likes of CNN would never be aired to trash the US. By the way, who even watches that channel? They are a notch above MSNBC whose only platform is to worship Obama and trash GW Bush who has not been in office since 2009. As they blamed Bush for Katrina, I think they also blamed Bush for Sandy.

My son spent his Junior year as a Notre Dame student going to school in Mexico. The only news he had of home was CNN international. The tone of the news and the constant unopposed negative slant about his home was demoralizing and he had to be deprogrammed when he returned. My wife used to call it the Clinton News Network and frankly CNN fits right in with Obama´s apologizing for everything American. If WE view ourselves in a self-loathing manner, how else should we expect the world to see us?

#6 makes many great points.

As we pause and think about the strangeness of the raging anti-Americanism, i suddenly wonder, hey! The Great BO changed all this, didn´t he? And then he went and got re-elected.

So, why doesn´t the world love us now? (rhetorical question)

As the rest of the world careens into the new Dark Ages and screams out for rescue, well, we´ll be of no help. We´re on our way down too.

I remember this year when I had work done on my car I was in the waiting room and they had cnn on I asked the one employee if he could change the channel to e.s.p.n.??
He said he didn´t have the remote control and wouldn´t you know it some mind numbed
robot of the state controlled media started
to complain that she liked cnn.
Cnn had that breaking story about our ambassador was killed in the middle east and the first thing that came out of my mouth was "This is propaganda",turns out later that I was right.
I told that woman several times she was watching propaganda and got frustrated by her ignorance and walked out!!
This country is getting what it deserves because this is one very ignorant race of people.

CNN also runs in waiting rooms, in the atria of big buildings, everywhere an anti-American driving beat. Considering their ratings, it is a wonder that they get this star treatment. I suppose they allow it for free or something? Or the other channels haven´t thought of doing this, or can´t win the argument? Maybe we need to request Al Jazeera instead, or the BBC. Nobody will think they are learning about America, and besides, both of those reflect some actually successful commercial models.

This reader mocked Heartbleed, posted his

Here´s a lesson in online security: Passwords are important. They keep your information safe. Crucially, they also prevent other people from impersonating you. Unfortunately, one of The Switch´s readers learned that the hard way. On a story explaining how the Heartbleed bug could slow down the Internet, a commenter scoffed at the "Heartbleed thingamajig," arguing that the Internet´s handwringing over security was mostly overwrought: I couldn´t give a flying fig about the Heartbleed thingamajig. Two years already the thing has been running loose ... and not a word of someone crying over its damage. Say ... does anyone really know its origin?

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

INDIANAPOLIS | A Portage airman was among the Hoosier troops stationed in Germany that Gov. Mike Pence met Monday on the first stop of his jobs mission to Indiana´s largest European trading partner. Lt. Benjamin DeLaCruz, a 2007 Portage High School graduate, helped show the Republican governor and first lady Karen Pence around the sprawling Ramstein Air Base and participated in a discussion with the governor about the role of U.S. forces in Europe. "On behalf of the men and women serving overseas, I would like to thank Gov. Pence for visiting Ramstein today," DeLaCruz said in a statement released by the

Cults In Our Midst: Patty Hearst
And The Brainwashing Of America
The Federalist, by Stella Morabito    Original Article

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

Chevron, Dole cases expose lawyer corruption

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers. These rulings are welcome

Not all of the Pulitzers were

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Another sob story in the left-wing media about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev? Yesterday it was the turn of The New York Times, under the headline, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Isolation.” Needless to say, the ACLU is up in arms. Boo-hoo-hoo. And if he were in general population, rest assured the headline would have been, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Fear of his Life.” Needless to say, the ACLU would be up in arms. This one was perfectly timed — on the first anniversary of the Joker placing one of his kettle bombs in front of little Martin Richard, who had moments

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
