Tells you all you need to know about the state of ‘journalism’ today.
Via Daily Wire:
On Tuesday, CNN trumpeted that the network had won the Walter Cronkite Award, administered by USC’s Norman Lear Center and announced by the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, for the Parkland Townhall in which NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch was booed and even called a “murderer.”
Annenberg professor Marty Kaplan, director of USC’s Norman Lear Center, took a shot at President Trump, chortling, “If the press is the ‘enemy of the people,’ then being on this ‘enemies’ list is a badge of honor for these exceptional journalists.”
Hilariously, the Norman Lear Center titled its press release announcing the award, “Cronkite Award Proves That Facts Matter.” It stated, “CNN Parkland Town Hall, a two-hour special, aired only seven days after 17 students and teachers were murdered by a gunman at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. In this ‘compelling and powerful’ forum, moderator Jake Tapper deftly gave generous space to speak to gun control advocates, politicians, Parkland students, parents and a representative from the NRA. The program helped ‘advance the national conversation on gun control and violence,’ the jury said.”
