President Trump has chosen Heather Nauert to replace Nikki Haley as the United States ambassador to the United Nations, and CNN is in a fine froth. The Daily Caller reported Monday that “CNN launched an attack on President Donald Trump’s pick for United Nations ambassador, Heather Nauert, that inadvertently turned the microscope on itself.” CNN hit Nauert for a 2009 Fox News presentation called “Terror from Within,” featuring Frank Gaffney, Tarek Fatah, and me. Yes, that’s right: seventeen years after 9/11, the establishment media is trying to destroy someone by associating her with people who oppose jihad mass murder.
The Daily Caller notes CNN’s hypocrisy: “A review of interviews on CNN reveals that they have, in fact, interviewed Gaffney, Spencer and Fateh [sic] on multiple occasions. CNN’s most recent interview with Spencer occurred in 2015 — six years after Nauert interviewed him for the webcast.” So once again the fake news propagandists at CNN trip on their own feet.
But the real issue here is that CNN propagandist Andrew Kaczynski, the author of CNN’s hit piece, actually believes that he can ruin Nauert’s chances of becoming ambassador to the UN by associating her with opponents of jihad terror and Sharia oppression of women, gays, and others. State Department deputy spokesman Robert Palladino played into the hands of those who hold this warped perspective when he told CNN that when a journalist interviews people, that “does not mean the moderator agrees with the views expressed.”
