ANDERSON COOPER VILLIFIES, RATHER THAN INTERVIEWS, HIS GUESTS
May 8, 2010
Dear Mr. Cooper,
Forgive me, sir…I must have misunderstood the intent of your show. Was I wrong to believe you were a component of the free press, a professional journalist?
I was very confused about the manner in which you attempted to attack your guest, Lt. Col. Lakin, as opposed to engage him. Did I miss something?
Maybe I got it all wrong, Mr. Cooper, but it looked like your intentions were to discredit this principled, highly-decorated, honorable warrior, who demonstrated his dedication to the Constitution and the American people.
Unlike you, sir, Col. Lakin has put his life on the line on many occasions just so ingrates like you could heap abuse on him. He is obviously a much better man than you.
Now in my book, your conduct last night places you in the same incredibly unique category as that of Ms. Ma’am Boxer. You both represent an insult to the American people and especially intelligent society. You knowingly participated in disseminating false and misleading information with regard to the eligibility issue, a subject about which you proved your gross incompetence. Because I believe you did so deliberately, in my opinion, you are also guilty of the crime of misprision. Further, in my view, this is a violation of the FCC license under which your broadcast network operates. So in principle, at the very least, CNN should be sanctioned and fined for your transgressions.
But not to worry, Mr. Cooper; the damage has been dramatically contained due to the small size of your viewing audience. That is with the exception of those like me who just tuned in out of curiosity to see CNN live up to its reputation for biased reporting. I am happy to say you certainly met my expectations!
Your actions and behavior were classic Alinsky-style techniques. It is hard to imagine that the management of CNN and you really are this stupid. Hey…but I suspect you drink enough Kool-Aid and as a natural consequence it has distorted your judgment, your ethics, your morality and your humanity.
But take heart! The American public sees right through your treachery. A brief glance at the CNN ratings confirms this fact.
The losses at CNN continued a pattern in place for much of the last year, as the network trailed its competitors in every prime-time hour. (CNN still easily beats MSNBC in the daytime hours, but those are less lucrative in advertising money, and both networks are far behind Fox News at all hours.)
But it is all relative, isn’t it, Mr. Cooper…CNN beat out MSNBC in the ratings. WOW…what a coup. Next thing you know, you will start paying viewers to watch you, maybe even offer unimaginable incentives…compliments of the American taxpayers, of course, via the White House.
So maybe the viewing public is not as dumb as you first thought….Maybe the public sees through your criminal intent. Maybe, just like Rep. Joe Wilson, the viewing public does not like liars and propagandists. What do you think? But really, who cares what you think; certainly not most of your viewers.
You know, Mr. Cooper, throughout history, every traitor has had a price…what was yours?
