CNN President Jeff Zucker rips Trump, Sarah Sanders after explosive device received

Per Fox News:

“Hours after CNN’s New York City headquarters were evacuated over an explosive device Wednesday, the network’s president, Jeff Zucker, issued a statement condemning President Trump and White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, saying they ‘should understand their words matter.'”

Can you believe the chutzpah of Jeff Zucker, president of the unceasingly critical and profoundly biased CNN, complaining about Trump’s “attacks” on the media? Apparently Trump never got the memo to all Republicans that they are never to stand up for themselves and fight back against the leftwing media’s siege on them, as this is the standard that’s long been practiced. Or maybe Trump got the memo and he laughed at it before crunching it into a little ball and hurling into the trashcan.

Based upon research conducted by the Pew Research Center, the Washington Examiner concluded, in December of 2017, that:

“The media’s coverage of President Trump has been overwhelmingly negative, more than three times more critical than the initial coverage of former President Barack Obama and twice that of former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.”

What’s that you were saying about words mattering, Mr. Zucker? Does this apply to the millions of words printed and spoken by the mouthpieces at CNN during every minute of every day? Is it possible that your biased and unrelenting criticism of Donald Trump and his administration has led to the growing hostility by your devoted readers, some of whom have increasingly engaged in the physical harassment of members of the Trump administration and other conservatives?  Let’s tweek your quote just a bit and see if your own words can be just as easily applied to you:

There is a total and complete lack of understanding in the so-called “mainstream” media about the seriousness of their continued attacks on the President and his administration. CNN, and especially some of its more hostile reporters, should understand their words matter. Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that.” – CW

Yep – it works!

Pot, meet kettle.

  1. I do not know about these so-called bombs, but I do know that just about every man I know could make a REAL bomb and put it in a “proper” mailing packet.

    These appear to be cartoon bombs in “look at me” envelopes from Wyle E Coyote.

  3. Zucker is doing that Dem thing again, where they accuse us and/or the president of the very thing they’re guilty of doing. His problem is he doesn’t know when to quit and it sounds like he actually believes that garbage they pump is the truth. CNN is the biggest laughing stock of the media, so for him to try and blame this on Trump makes them all the more ridiculous.

    Trump also said that “the media also has a responsibility to set a civil tone and to stop the endless hostility and constant negative and often times false attacks and stories.” That means you, Zucker. Give it a rest.

    • I remember after the Oklahoma City bombing when some on the Left tried to blame that terrible act on Rush Limbaugh. Not only was the logic absurd given that Limbaugh has never called for violence, but if the mere act of criticizing someone can be blamed for inspiring violence, then it would stand to reason that Limbaugh’s critics were inciting violence against HIM. The same twisted logic applies in this case with Zucker. If Trump’s criticism of the media makes him responsible for bomb threats against the media, then by his own reasoning Zucker’s criticism of Trump means Zucker is responsible if any lunatic should attempt to get violent with Trump. Nice circle, eh? And of course we will never know to what extent the “resist” rhetoric and hatred constantly spewed at Trump from the Left has inspired people to be violent against him because he has the good fortune of being protected 24/7.

  4. My husband and I believe these devices were meant as a diversion and to smear the right. Today, we’re hearing all about DeNiro getting one… apparently none of the 9 known ones have gone off and/or are fake…. Movies are fake, too, so it wouldn’t surprise us to learn DeNiro had something to do with this or was even behind it.

    • I don’t know about DeNiro, Foguth, but I hope you’re right. I think it’s very telling that none of the devices have exploded. Either someone is bad at making bombs or they were never made to go off. Why send bombs to your enemies that aren’t really bombs unless…maybe they aren’t really your enemies? Whatever the case, we should know very soon if the FBI does its job and doesn’t let the politics of it get in the way (after what we’ve seen with the Deep State it occurred to me that if this does turn out to be a false flag there might be some Deep Staters in the FBI who would favor sitting on that info for as long as possible. See how cynical they’ve made me?). I watch a lot of true crime-solving shows and the FBI is extremely good at finding the clues that identify bomb makers and bomb senders. Within 48 hours they will most likely know the precise origin of every component right down to the bubble wrap.

      • I don’t know about DeNiro, either, but do wonder if one or more of the recipients might not be the sender. I mainly wonder that since none of the actual devices have blown up, which suggests they aren’t really dangerous.
        This morning, a friend sent me this & it seems quite wise:
        So who is behind the nasty “bombs” sent to notable Democratic and media sources?

        Republicans? If so, its about the dumbest thing they could do. To what benefit? The media and Democratic politicians will blame Republicans. And what would Republicans get?…nothing.

        Democrats? A brilliant “October surprise” which the media will run with like gangbusters. Liberal politicians are already “on it” like glue.

        Deep State Bureaucracy? Maybe some sympathetic CIA or FBI black ops folks volunteered their expertise.

        How to tell:

        #1 Since the event required sophisticated knowledge of bombs and target addresses it shows skilled people did this. If they covered their tracks it shows very skilled people did this. Nut cases?…even smart ones aren’t that good. So it is likely done by black ops people for the Dems or Republicans.

        #2 If the bombs are found to be “neutered” without a valid triggering device it says the sender did not intend to kill. So who would do that? Someone who does NOT really want to kill the folks being “targeted”. ……..DEMOCRATS!

        #3 If the bombs have real triggering devices then look for a nut-case with brains

        Regardless of who sent them, I hope the truth is found and the guilty go to jail.

      • Whoever sent the bombs was almost certainly acting alone or with perhaps just one other person because, as you said, it’s probably the most counter-productive thing you could do if you want to help your own political party. The shootings of Steve Scalise and other Republicans by a loony leftist a while back only served, fairly or not, to cast a negative pall on the Left and make heroes out of his targets. That surely wasn’t his goal but it goes to show that people can sometimes be so blinded by their anger that they just aren’t considering the bigger picture and how their actions might backfire.

        I think it’s certainly possible that there’s a rogue Trump-supporter or anti-leftist out there who’s responsible but I believe it’s equally plausible that this is the work of an unhinged anti-Trumper trying to create the false perception of violence from the right. Either one is a lunatic, but it’s a sad testament to the times we live in because it should only reflect on the actual culprit(s) yet we are all waiting on pins and needles to learn the truth because we know how it’s going to be weaponized for political gain.

  5. Interestingly the Dems are the only ones calling for violence though. I wonder what Zucker has to say about that?
