Lemon Squeezed: “It’s My Duty To Call Trump A Racist!”

Don Lemon Party is confused about journalism.

Don Lemon, possibly CNN’s dumbest anchor, spoke recently at an event sponsored by the magazine Variety. During a Q&A session Don Lemon Party was asked about calling President Trump a racist live on air. The answer Lemon Party gave seemed to indicate that he was confused as to the true nature of “objective journalism.”

According to Don Lemon Party you have an obligation to call someone a racist on live television if you have “evidence” that indicates it. I would ask Lemon Party exactly what evidence he has that Donald Trump is racist. Did Lemon Party’s team of investigative reporters unearth Trump’s version of Mein Kampf in which he details his “final solution” for the “minority problem?” Does Lemon Party have a picture of Trump at a Klan meeting pouring gasoline on a cross in preparation for a classic Southern Democrat cookout? Maybe he partied too hard on live television one night and merely hallucinated this evidence.

This…is CNN…

Speaking of Don Lemon Party he also let it slip during that same event that CNN was no longer going to be covering Trump rallies live in real time:

“There will be no rallies that run in real time,” Lemon said at a Variety event on Friday. “There will not be so much space for candidates to let them ramble on. The American people will demand that. We will expect more truth from our candidates.”

According to Variety, Lemon referenced “CNN’s decision to carry live coverage of Trump rallies without much commentary as something that won’t be repeated.”

During the 2016 campaign, Trump used his rallies to give his perspective on issues like illegal immigration and trade that went counter to the legacy media’s preferred narrative. He even highlighted “Angel Moms” and people of color whose families were victimized by illegal immigrant crime—like Jamiel Shaw Sr.—that the legacy media had conveniently chosen to ignore.

The legacy media aired many of Trump’s rallies unfiltered because they never thought he could actually win the presidency. But the joke eventually ended up being on them, and now the legacy media seem intent on not making the same “mistakes.”

CNN is such an objective news organization that they aren’t going to let people see Donald Trump raw and unfiltered. Why give the audience the opportunity to think for themselves? Better to give them plenty of analysis from intellectual heavyweights like Lemon Party, or True Republicans like Ana Navarro. Besides, someone might get offended, and we wouldn’t want that.

Don Lemon Party and CNN as a whole bristle with barely contained rage whenever President Trump refers to them as “fake news.” They are so completely oblivious to the fact that Trump calls them fake news because they are fake news. How many times has CNN been called out for outright lying during their coverage of President Trump? More importantly, how many times has the Mainstream Media as a whole been called out for their blatant lies about President Trump?

Being an objective journalist does not mean interjecting your personal opinion into a news story. An objective reporter does not tell people that the President of the United states is racist, especially when they lack any evidence for such a charge. A true journalist certainly does not have Lemon Party’s attitude of “guilty until proven innocent.”

The job of an objective reporter is to report the news honestly and without bias. The true journalist digs into all sides of a story and presents the issues of the day in an even-handed manner. A real journalist teaches people how to think critically about an issue rather than telling them what they need to think.

Don Lemon Party and CNN don’t want to be referred to as “fake news?” Fine.

Then maybe they should stop acting like fake news.
