This Was CNN
PJ Media, by Michael A. Walsh

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 1/2/2013 8:01:51 AM

Last night’s vulgar stunt by somebody named Kathy Griffin, performed on somebody named Anderson Cooper in the course of “covering” the happens-every-year ball drop at Times Square for CNN, should rightly mark the end of the network as a serious news outlet. (You can watch it here.) No one should be surprised. CNN and indeed much of American journalism, has been heading this way since advent of the Snark Generation — Harvard-educated princelings who, having failed to land a writing job on The Simpsons, took their tiny little sacks

One of our staffers had half a dozen small children in the room when this happened. She´s still trying to explain. She can´t.

Kathy Griffin is the skank who is or was dating Bristol Palin´s baby daddy. I think I read something about him being a deadbeat father. They deserve each other.

No 7 second delay? Of course there was, but CNN chose to allow this pig on the air and hoped she would do something like this. I am 62 years old. I remember my parents saying"maybe I have lived too long." Well maybe I have too. I am so thoroughly disgusted with almost every aspect of my country- Obama, Congress, union thugs in small town America, legalized marijuana, assisted suicide, the death of quality health care, the likes of CNN and MSNBC, ABC,CBS, NBC. Murder of our diplomats with no consequence, a lying administration, a pres who left skid marks to get back to Hawaii, free speech and the 2nd Amendment on the verge of disappearing. All in 4 short years. Feel free to add to the list.

She was once a guest on Paula Deen´s cooking show and had to be bleeped every third sentence. Her alleged mind is preoccupied with adolescent sexual innuendo and overt sexuality. She is, in short, an attention-seeking, vulgar opportunist who thinks she is funny. She is merely pathetic.

When I saw her on Paula Deen´s show, I thought, "I doubt she´ll be back". I hope not for Ms. Deen´s sake. As for CNN´s inclusion of her in their show, it was poor judgment at best. Anderson Cooper´s reaction was exactly as it should have been -- horrified, embarrassed and not wanting to be on the same show as Ms. Griffin.

She needs to grow up. Adults whose speech and actions are peppered with sexual references and gestures reveal a mind not capable of intelligent discourse nor dignity, an arrested-development that is more pathetic than amusing, more sad than funny.

Kathy Griffin and CNN deserve each other. She has no career and has proven repeatedly she´ll do anything to get attention. CNN is doing everything it can to insure its demise. Yet, how many of the pseudo-intellectual left still watch CNN and claim to be more informed than the knuckle-dragging members of the Tea Party?

FTA: But this is what comes of gleefully abandoning one’s standards, as American journalism did once it renounced “objectivity” and proudly endorsed the Leftist agenda of non-judgmental society wrecking.

I have no words to describe the travesty that is a creature such as Kathy Griffin. But what a great (sad) quote Mr. Walsh provided to start my 2013 list.

If it weren´t for the extensive cosmetic surgery, Kathy Griffin would like the over-the-hill, washed up act she is. She does what she does in a pathetic and sick attempt to remain relevant. That CNN continues its association with her says the same about its relevance.

Perhaps as/more disgusting were continual scenes of the rabid kissing as the ball dropped in Times Square. I think the Left (photographer) wants us to advance to Orwell´s 1984 by 2014; so they put such scenes before our young people as the way to behave.
Originally, a Happy New Year kiss was meant as a simple wish -- not bedroom behavior.
I agree with #8.

The third word in this article is "vulgar", which is too kind. Kathy Griffin is ugly despite her extensive plastic surgery, and what makes her ugly is her atrocious conduct.
Griffin epitomizes everything that is wrong with Hollywood.

Let me toss in the ´tinfoil hat´ angle.

Job #1 at the alphabets is covering up and distracting attention away from tsunami of scandal and lawlessness that is our Executive Branch.

This type of stunt refocuses public outrage away from government crime and raises the bar for scandal at the same time.

....also provides an opportunity for the officially gay anchor to appear conservative and moderate and even embarrassed about matters of the flesh.

Touching.

For those unaware, Kathy Griffin has been Cooper´s sidekick on his New Year´s Eve shows for a few years now, and each year she strives to top the previous year´s "outrage." They appear to be show-biz buddies; a year ago she did a segment on his daytime tv show highlighting her vacationing with him at his summer retreat. Any embarrassment Cooper is claiming about Monday night is wholly insincere. They probably rehearsed and ran lines ahead of time.

This annual gig goes over big with Griffin´s gay audience, which is to say 99 percent of her fans. (No doubt she is more popular with gays than Cooper himself is.) At 52 and basically blind in one eye following bad Lasik surgery a few years back, Griffin works harder all the time at her "shock" antics. Her mock "dating" of Levi Johnston was similar publicity garner-ing, as was her obscene remark about Jesus at the Emmys, etc., etc. The list is long. No one is happier than Griffin that she has reaped all this attention from her routine the other night; mission accomplished. She must be hugging herself. And CNN, equally thrilled, probably has signed her up for next New Year´s Eve.

Well, my wife and I missed it all. We subscribe to DishNet TV-5 from France and watched a great variety show time- delayed to EST. I don´t have to understand French to appreciate the beauty and talent. The pap served up on
the networks is far more than we can stand. Last year we vowed we would watch ´Everybody Loves Raymond´ reruns and go to bed at ten before we would watch any ´ball-drop´ from the networks.

#30 nails it. Griffin and Cooper have been buds for years, she actually was making homosexual jokes at his expense years before he came "out". I remember watching a stand up routine from Griffin about 10 years ago, she was relatively new on the scene and some of her stuff was funny. She ended the routine by taking off her pants and finishing the show in her underwear.

Count me in. I mentioned in my cigar lounge the other day that I´m glad that I´m 61 and not 21. I don´t want to be around to see what´s going to happen. Given the brain-dead, entitlement junky electorate and the inevitable demographic trends going the wrong way, America is probably not coming back. Romney would have been a temporary fix at best.

I´d kind of like to be in on some of the coming civil unrest though.

Griffin seems to be the female version of this "uncle". She is a sad excuse for a woman. Wouldn´t want to be around when she crashes, there will be no friends, no attention, and who up there will be listening?

It will only get worse. There is absolutely nothing on main stream television that is either funny or clean. I wish Carol Burnett could come back.

I spend my New Years with friends in a cottage on a lake that does not have television. Turn the set off and don´t pay attention to it. That is the only way to get away from it.

Simple statements

Its CNN, low scoring ratings and stupid stunts.

Its Anderson Cooper propaganda minister and braindead journelist, can anyone recall an interesting show with him on it?

Its Kathy Griffin rude, crude and not very funny. Why is she still employed? Why would anyone want to watch her standard stick of stupidity?

In other words a grade school level liberal publicity stunt. I am sure the network PR morons are saying it was a good thing to have a tramp trying to give head to a homo. I am sure they really believe that.

As low as our culture has sunk, it can and will sink lower. It would seem there´d come a time when too much is too much, the bar has a long way to drop. The progs love this, the outraged are identified and can be targeted. I´m reminded of the opening to ´1984´ as theater-goers laugh uproariously at the killing of refugees.

#49: exactly!
We own a tv for the sole purpose of watching movies (it´s more comfortable than huddling around a laptop) and playing video games. Everything else we get off the internet. Every time we find ourselves in a hotel room or staying with family who have cable, the hubby and I are always amazed at how there is nothing on worth watching; 1000 channels and nothing on.

#49, I have my favorite shows like NCIS and Person of Interest but I´ll never feel the same way about the actress that plays Abby on NCIS.

When she recently mentioned that she wouldn´t mind being stuck in an elevator with Michelle Obama, I was sick. Yes I know that the writers write those lines for the actors, but I believe a conservative actress like Patricia Heaton wouldn´t have allowed it.

I never watch CNN and totally avoided any and all "midnite celebrations" by going to bed at 9:30.

The calendar changed the next morning and zippy was still prez when I awoke.

I told my hubby that this is the first year, I was depressed on New Year´s Eve. I asked why would anyone want to celebrate the demise of our country. Of course, the Leftist Socialists are happy. As for Griffin and Cooper, they deserve one another - both filthy people.

#8 is so right. You can add the glorification of abortion, watching them be gleeful about killing babies cannot be described, it´s so awful. I am trying hard to still love my dear country, but it´s getting harder. I´m 66 and the negative changes are so difficult to watch, and I don´t think it will get any better ever. I´m glad I got to grow up during the 50s and early 60s, before things went crazy.

We never watch CNN, and the fact that they would have this disgusting skank on their New Years Eve show tells you all you need to know. We watched the Twilight Zone marathon and got to sleep before midnight. I avoid all of this type of stuff as best I can, but you still can´t avoid all of it.

I too, am in agreement with previous posters regarding living too long(75) and the moral decadence in our culture and politics....However, I stick around for my Grandchildren, who I get to influence from time to time with positive hopefulness...But the main reason for my persistence is that I´m so afraid that when the shooting finally starts, I will have passed...My most fervent desire is to be on the front line of retribution with my antique Winchester Octagon barrel,40 Caliber, giving it back to the gun-grabing bastards 185 grains at a time...There is absolutely nothing wrong with our form of government...It requires but a modicum of simple morality to function properly, and it has been undeniably demonstrated that the occupants in those seats of government have NONE!! Our tree is withering for lack of proper nutrients..and water..I have a bucket...the brigade is forming...

This equine-faced woman is so desperate to get attention she´ll do anything for it. What a pitiful, rotgut example of womanhood. She´s certainly made her mark with me; she makes me gag. Anderson and CNN knew exactly what they were getting when they invited her on. As I recall, she pulled another stunt in a similar situation a few years back - something to do with her chest. She is one sickening warthoggish water-buffalo. My apologies to any and all innocent and endearing warthogs and water buffalo out there. CNN is "the pits" and apparently likes it there. They ´giggle´ at all the wrong things.

Interesting to hear the perspective of the older folks around here. I´m 31, so presumably I have to live through plenty more of this garbage. It´s sad to watch.

I really thought things were far gone when Sandra Fluke addressed the Democratic convention. A woman demanding that other people subsidize her sex life against their will, and being hailed as a hero for it, seems like the apotheosis of cultural silliness in a nation increasingly prone to ineffectual naval-gazing. I have no confidence that we have seen the worst of it.

I remember watching an interview with the very elderly historian Jacques Barzun, in which he said our culture is decadent and will sooner or later hit the skids, but thankfully a regeneration will come out of that collapse, as it always does. Hey, that´s fine for Barzun -- he was old when he gave the interview, and he recently passed away. Am I supposed to be relaxed because stuff will get better 200 years from now?!?!

Kathy Griffin is on the David Letterman show right now. Everyone laughing and applauding - gay jokes, gay references, obscene references, ad nauseam. Watched to see if she had an apology for her revolting behavior. Stupid me. There aren´t words to describe her disgusting appearance. I wonder if the TV show of David Letterman (a current Kennedy Center Honoree) is always this vulgar and crass.

Agree, #8 and all those who wonder if they´ve lived too long. Every day there is another outrage against decency and our American way of life.

The TV in our home was turned on to the Dick Clark show just to watch the ball drop, and we were commenting on how awful New Year´s Eve programming has become. We didn´t even know who most of those people were. At midnight, we turned off the TV and had a family party, which we´ve done since the kids, now grown, were small.

If Anderson Cooper were a genuine newscaster, he would have asked to go to commercial, and come back without that "skank" as so many here have called her.

WASHINGTON — The mysterious American plane that landed at an airport in Tehran belongs to an overseas client, the bank that acts as a trustee for the plane confirmed on Friday. Scott Nielsen, an executive at the Bank of Utah, which according to FAA databases owns the plane, said that the executives had been trying to reach the real owners but “This is an overseas customer and they don’t operate under the same hours as we do.” Clients “can be an American they can not be one,” Nielsen said. “The service is used by all kinds of people for a

A lawyer who specializes in sex abuse cases says this week´s lawsuit against director Bryan Singer is but one of several Hollywood abuse cases that will come to light in the coming weeks. Today we learned of a suit against Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and a big Democratic donor, charging he drugged and sexually abused a 15-year-old boy back in 1999. Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident. Herman works as a sexual abuse attorney who previously sued

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines. The crew called him “one-take Romney,” and before he departed, they swarmed, extending arms around his shoulders and angling their iPhones for

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

What are the odds? I mean, Vladimir Putin does a call-in show and one guy who happens to get through—to ask a question in English—is Ed Snowden? That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

Detroit bailout plans just paper over

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services. Detroit is facing

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

President Obama today sought to make light of a stinging public rebuke from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who took the president to task for disparaging GOP lawmakers while seeking to make a deal on immigration reform. Obama, the No. 2 House leader said yesterday after a phone conversation with the president, should “stop his partisan messaging and begin to seriously work with Congress.” Hours before the president called Cantor, the White House had issued a statement in which Obama ripped House Republicans for favoring “extreme measures” and “seemingly preferring the status quo of a broken immigration system over meaningful reform.” “You’re always

As everyone knows, Brandeis publicly announced that they would award Ayaan Hirsi Ali an honorary doctorate--and then, under siege by nearly 30% of their professors, and by thousands of their own students, they publicly disinvited Hirsi Ali. This campaign was orchestrated by the Muslim Student Association and by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization which is the American face of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. Someone sent author Naomi Wolf a copy of my latest article about this scandal: “Brandeis Feminists Fail the Historical Moment.” It was my response to Brandeis’s shameful dis-invitation of Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

Secretary of State John Kerry evidently runs a tight ship, given the paucity of leaks that emerge from his office. So we know he is organized and disciplined. He is also an energetic risk-taker, jumping into high-wire negotiations with Iran, and forcing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table -- enterprises that could likely end in failure and ruin his reputation. This is a man with character. By contrast, his predecessor at State, Hillary Clinton, appeared to take few risks and has been accused of using the position of secretary of state merely to burnish her resume in preparation

"I´ve been vomiting. I lost 22 pounds. The pain is unbearable," said Margaret Figueroa, 49, on Wednesday. "My medication helps me function during the day." Figueroa suffers from a disease known as Arnold Chiari Malformation and Syringomyelia.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."
