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.

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.

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.

In late February, the City University of New York announced that it had tapped Princeton economist and New York Times blogger Paul Krugman for a distinguished professorship at CUNY’s Graduate Center and its Luxembourg Income Study Center, a research arm devoted to studying income patterns and their effect on inequality. About that. According to a formal offer letter obtained under New York’s Freedom of Information Law, CUNY intends to pay Krugman $225,000, or $25,000 per month (over two semesters), to “play a modest role in our public events” and “contribute to the build-up” of a new “inequality initiative.” It is not

As predictable as the media silence to follow comes the news that New York City´s new left-wing mayor, who ran on a platform based in large part on raising taxes, paid an effective 8.3% tax rate in 2013 based on a total income of over $200,000. Mayor de Blasio and his wife made $167,047 in income, $52,000 in rental income on a second home in Park Slope, and reported charitable donations that totaled just 3% of their income, or $5,597.

Who’s Attending Eric Holder’s Off The

Attorney General Eric Holder‘s planned meeting with mainstream media outlets’ Washington bureau chiefs have been stalled after the Justice Department indicated that the conversations would be off-the-record. The New York Times‘ executive editor Jill Abramson was the first to decline the invitation, and shortly after the AP, CNN, CBS News and The Huffington Post followed suit. With much of the debate over the DOJ’s subpoena guidelines revolving around reporter James Rosen, Fox News clearly has a vested interest in the outcome of the meeting. While there appears to be a mini-campaign among Fox anchors to send Rosen himself to the meeting

Sorry, Rev, but Christianity isn´t

Here’s a thought for the day: Most people are “nice”, but Christians should be nice with a purpose. I am not a fan of the sitcom Rev, which depicts a vicar trying to be kind to his parishioners – with hilarious consequences. His congregation is small, full of delinquents, and the eponymous clergymen is often driven to drink by their unholy antics. Justin Welby disagrees with the show’s depiction of Anglican life because he notes that many churches are growing. The Rev’s, by contrast, conforms to a self-lacerating vision of Christianity as nice but niche. But self-laceration is the stock-in-trade of the

Louisiana GOP: Mary Landrieu ad fakery

Louisiana Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu, in a neck-and-neck race for re-election, is taking a lot of criticism over a new ad -- her first this season -- depicting herself taking on "Washington" to protect the interests of Louisiana´s oil and gas industry. What Landrieu did to invite the ridicule was to re-create for her ad producers her own performance in a Senate hearing -- complete with set, supporting cast, fake nameplate, and even phony news chyrons -- to show her standing up for her state. The unspoken message of the ad -- something Landrieu could never say directly -- is that

When recently asked what she was most proud of from her time as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton replied that the office was like a “relay race.” “When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton,” she said. Mrs. Clinton was unable to cite any specific achievement, though she did make the rather dubious claim that “I think we really restored American leadership in the best sense.” Even some of her most ardent admirers couldn’t figure out a good answer to the question about her greatest achievement, during a discussion on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” As Ed

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will spend $50 million this year to build a nationwide grassroots network on gun control in a direct challenge to the National Rifle Association, The New York Times reported. The new lobbying group, called Everytown for Gun Safety, will encompass other gun control groups funded by Bloomberg, Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, the report said. Bloomberg told the Times the strategy will focus on expanding the background check system for gun buyers at the state and national levels.

Last week, the president’s lap dog blew his dog whistle. In case you didn’t know, in politics a “dog whistle” is coded language that has a superficial meaning for everybody, but also a special resonance for certain constituencies. Using dog whistles lets politicians deny they meant to say anything nasty, bigoted, or controversial. Speaking to the National Action Network the day after a testy but racially irrelevant exchange with Republican members of a House panel, Attorney General Eric Holder said, “The last five years have been defined . . . by lasting reforms even in the face of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly,

Former Vermont governor Howard Dean (D) says Democrats would be in strong position to win back the U.S. House majority this year if not for the troubled rollout of the federal health-care Web site last fall. "I think we would have won the House had the Web site not collapsed," Dean, a former Democratic National Committee chairman, said in a brief interview with Post Politics Tuesday evening. He called the battle for the House a "struggle" for Democrats but predicted the party would retain control of the Senate. The flawed rollout of the health-care Web site "was a problem because we had

The administration’s “smart diplomacy” does not include providing aid to those who fight internal oppression or outside aggression and whose victory potentially would obviate the need for direct U.S. action. Hence, President Obama gave Iran’s Green Revolution the cold shoulder in June 2009. He denied aid, and then dragged his feet on delivering aid to non-jihadi rebels in Syria. Now, it should come as no surprise, he is unwilling to provide Ukraine with military aid or intelligence to defend itself against Russian aggression.

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

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

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
