Fear mongering meets comedy in news

You know CNN has gone downhill. But do you want to know how far down they’ve gone? They hired someone to mock them. That’s right, in case they hadn’t realized it.

In desperation for viewers, they brought on Comedy Central comedian, Colin Quinn. He told Anderson Cooper in an interview that it was a political and cultural humor that took no sides. He said all he wanted from the program is for people to just laugh.

Okay, on the face. But let me understand this: all week long CNN tells us what dangerous times we are in, on the verge if not in Constitutional crisis, the likes of which we have never experienced before. Be very afraid for what calamity our country is now in because of Trump in the White House. From scholars to the street, fear is very real and justified.

Now they bring on a guy to make you laugh at it all. Yes, laugh at the polarization, the division, the incessant identity politics and the ridiculous nature or state of our political system. It’s over, he says, we’re done. But we are supposed to laugh ourselves into a frenzy over it. Right. The country is lost and we are on the cusp of civil war.

So tell CNN that all their hogwash, fear mongering is for naught because we are now going to laugh our asses off at it all. Yep, that’s just what I was thinking. Laugh your asses off at the catastrophic crisis that CNN makes of it all. But will liberals think it is funny?

I wonder if this is going to be a regular thing as they claim? It sure does set the tone for their “news” coverage though. On a side note, he is funny and makes some points but then drifts right into the anti-Trump rants. Though that is probably why they hired him. Ironic how it makes much of CNN’s apocalyptic scare tactics look so petty by comparison.

So now they are trying comic relief on their audience? Kids do not try that at home.

The right has been laughing a while. There comes a point beyond jokes. Is it funny?

But maybe it is a metaphor? CNN and Comedy Central have just switched places now.
