I wouldn’t quite say I’m boycotting the CNN brand, since I did watch the CNN/YouTube debate. However, I generally speaking prefer to get my rightwing propaganda from Rupert Murdoch, who’s a bona fide professional and has been doing that sort of thing for years. The CNN-based alternative is amateurish and absurd. For example, Rick Perlstein describes a recent broadcast from Glenn Beck of CNN’s Headline News franchise:
Al Gore’s not going to be rounding up Jews and exterminating them. It is the same tactic, however. The goal is different. The goal is globalization. The goal is global carbon tax. The goal is the United Nations running the world. That is the goal. Back in the 1930s, the goal was get rid of all of the Jews and have one global government.” He continued: “You got to have an enemy to fight. And when you have an enemy to fight, then you can unite the entire world behind you, and you seize power. That was Hitler’s plan. His enemy: the Jew. Al Gore’s enemy, the U.N.’s enemy: global warming.” Beck added: “Then you get the scientists — eugenics. You get the scientists — global warming. Then you have to discredit the scientists who say, ‘That’s not right.’ And you must silence all dissenting voices. That’s what Hitler did.
See, it’s exactly the same.
