OK, someone was not thinking over at CNN.

Although I’m not sure “thinking” is one of CNN’s strong points.

But here is the real media outrage:

Rep. Keith Ellison is angling to become head of the DNC.

He is well-known as an Israel-basher, he has praised his friend Louis Farrakhan, and it is now reported that his 2008 trip to the Hajj in Saudi Arabia was funded by a Muslim Brotherhood-connected organization.

But crickets from the MSM.

Instead, non-stop coverage of Steve Bannon and the “racist, anti-Semitic, sexist, homophobic” Breitbart News.


A “furious” Jake Tapper blasted CNN and his own show, The Lead, for displaying a phrase on Monday night’s show that outraged many viewers who claimed on social media the program was normalizing anti-Semitic comments.
