CNN anchor smashed by college freshman [Tom Woods]

A single act of defiance by a college freshman, taking under a minute, just warmed my unfortunately cynical heart.

The Atlantic sponsored a roundtable at the University of Chicago called “Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy.”

Well, that was a shade too Orwellian for this particular freshman, who stood up and asked the following of CNN’s Brian Stelter:

My name is Christopher Phillips. I’m a first-year at the college.

You’ve all spoken extensively about FOX News being a purveyor of disinformation. But CNN is right up there with them. They pushed the Russian collusion hoax, they pushed the Jussie Smollett hoax, they smeared Justice Kavanaugh as a rapist, and they also smeared Nick Sandmann as a white supremacist. And yes, they dismissed the Hunter Biden laptop affair as pure Russian disinformation.

With mainstream corporate journalists becoming little more than apologists and cheerleaders for the regime, is it time to finally declare that the canon of journalistic ethics is dead or no longer operative?

All the mistakes of the mainstream media, and CNN in particular, seem to magically all go in one direction. Are we expected to believe that this is all just some sort of random coincidence, or is there something else behind it?


I wouldn’t change a single word of that.

Stelter meandered but never answered the questions. Why are these alleged “errors” always in one direction? No response.

Stelter’s response began:

“I think you’re describing a different channel than the one that I watch. But I understand that that is a popular right-wing narrative about CNN.”

It didn’t get any better than that.

Congratulations to Christopher Phillips for understanding the world so clearly and being so well spoken while only a college freshman.

What he was doing in that brilliant minute is what I’m trying my best to do every weekday with the Tom Woods Show.

And on top of the show, I have a no-censorship private group for those good folks who support the show. Here’s a quick way to know what’s really going on, as opposed to whatever CNN is reporting.

If you like and appreciate the work of ol’ Woods here, I hope to see you inside:
