CNN hired Dana Loesch as a political contributor last week; however, MediaMatters dug up some blog posts dating back several years in which Loesch calls CNN “the biggest bunch of idiot blockheads,” (June 6, 2009) “state-run media,” (March 2010) and said that the network was the home to “tinfoil hats” (Sept. 2008).Media Matters for America has also ripped her anti-CNN attacks while on its payroll:
The new CNN hire also wrote that Anderson Cooper got his job “by benefit of silver spoons” (Feb. 2008).
Loesch wrote all of this on her blog “The Dana Show: The Conservative Alternative.”
Last week, CNN hired Dana Loesch as a political contributor. Loesch previously called CNN "the biggest bunch of idiot blockheads," "state-run media," home to "tinfoil hats," and accused the network of having a "blatant disregard for objectivity." Loesch also wrote that Anderson Cooper got his job "by benefit of silver spoons."
Loesch: CNN Is "State-Run Media." From a March 9, 2010, post, headlined, "CNN Joins Coffee Party on the Astroturf":
Loesch: "CNN Are The Biggest Bunch Of Idiot Blockheads." On June 16, 2009, Loesch linked to a post on Anderson Cooper's website and wrote: "CNN are the biggest bunch of idiot blockheads. They've been using Tweets from Iranian protesters and using their names along with the updates, essentially painting a target on the backs of these people. Unbelievable. No wonder media is begging for a bailout." [The Dana Show blog, 6/16/09]
I hope that conservatives continue to wake up in these numbers. We went from 1,500 participants on February 27th to around 8,000+ on Wednesday. Several people have asked me if we will take action - and by action, in case DHS is watching, means legislative action. As I've said before, I don't believe that you can make the case to change a law by breaking it. Before people can take action they have to be awake - and I feel that this first wave of protests have done just that, they've woken up a mass of people that have been verbally browbeaten into thinking that they are a small minority or that their political ideals are dead. Wednesday proved that conservatism is emphatically not dead and no matter how hard the mainstream media tries to stuff this story at the end of their newscasts, in the backs of the metro sections, or ignore it completely, they can't mis-report it out of existence. Our progress isn't measured by whether or not CNN loves us but you could say that our progress can be measure by how badly certain outlets want to shut us up. [The Dana Show blog, 4/17/09]
Is this lady out of her mind, and she is worse than either Malkin or Coulter at this point of the game. This nimrod will NOT let go of "union thugs beating up Gladney" nonsense, even when she's proven wrong. She's scheduled to be on John King, USA tonight.
