Dana Loesch at CNN 1 year later (AND still lying)

Over a year ago today, CNN (or TeaNN) hired the disgraced far-right Teahadist cretin Big Journalism Editor-In-Chief by the name of Dana Loesch.

Here are some of the CNN-related highlights (or not-so-highlights) by Loesch:

February 17th, 2011: Loesch misleadingly declared Michelle Obama's initiative to promote breastfeeding is "nanny state behavior."
On tonight's John King, USA, Dana Loesch was complaining about the breastfeeding promotion as a "nanny state tactic." She was on her anti-Obama high horse. Her counterpart Leigh Ann O'Connor, defended the use of breastfeeding supplies for women.  

DANA LOESCH, RADIO TALK SHOW HOST: I kind of have to answer yes and no with this. And I don't think it's necessarily Michelle Obama that's trying to do this. I don't necessarily think it's the first lady, but rather some of the actions that the administration has taken.
Look, I am all for breast feeding. I myself breast my children until they were well passed a year. And I think it's fantastic and advocacy for that. I'm a very vocal support it. 

But at the same time, from a conservative perspective, I have to question what the White House is doing, because breast pumps actually fall under medical devices, which as you know, under the health care law, those devices are going to be hit with a massive excise tax. So, don't make something tax deductible that you're taxing, just don't tax it. That's sort of the first criticism I think I have over it. 

But the second thing and this I don't think necessarily pertains to the first lady, but the way that the White House is kind of positioning itself towards this -- as far as breast feeding is concerned, I realize that the White House is trying to exert some influence over businesses to offer, to be more breast-feeding friendly -- again, fantastic. But I don't think it is the government's role to direct business in that. Leave that choice up to the individual businesses, to the parents, to the individual, period.

March 8th, 2011: She compares Sebelius and Democrats to "terrorists."

A few hours ago, evidence of St. Louis's leading hatemongersewer mouth, and CNN contributor Dana Loesch comparing Kathleen Sebelius and Democrats as "terrorists" was leaked, via ThinkProgress. 

DANA LOESCH: Absolutely. Well I hope that you are successful in negotiating. I feel like we’re negotiating, and I’m just going to say this, I feel like we’re negotiating, sort of, with, it seems like terrorists to do this to our economy, especially right now. Quite honestly it does. That you would be able to– 

Of course, her guest, Teahadist looncase Michele Bachmann (R-MN06) supports Loesch's vile rant. And typical of Dana The Devil, her loonytunes antics will get worse as time goes on.

April 8th, 2011: Loesch rudely talked over Democratic Congresswoman Jackie Speier on the now-cancelled In The Arena.
Last night on CNN's In The Arena, Dana Loesch made a fool of herself yet again on national television. She was opposed by Democratic Congresswoman Jackie Speier from California's 12th Congressional District, who earlier this year made a passionate defense of Planned Parenthood. 

Loesch was also scheduled to be on Anderson Cooper 360 last night, but thankfully CNN canned her at the last moment and replaced by another Conservative, Susan Molinari, who was a GOP Congresscritter from New York. She is supposed to appear on CBS's The Early Show later today (check local listings, airs on KMOV at 7-9AM CDT) and on CNN later this afternoon. 

Of course, she did the usual routine of talking over the others when they're speaking. Eliot Spitzer put her in her place when she claimed that the "Government should shut down due to Planned Parenthood holding up everything." No, the GOP would've been blamed if there was a shutdown, which was temporarily averted just before 10:00PM CDT last night. Better yet, Planned Parenthood was NOT cut.

May 19th, 2011: She falsely accused "Obama of siding with the terrorists over Israel."

Today on KTFK's The Dana Show, CNN "Contributor" and Axis of Evil ringleader Dana Loesch was accusing Obama of being "supportive of terrorists." This is not the first time she has accused Democrats of being "terrorist enablers." 


June 29th, 2011: She wanted the country to default so Obama and the Democratic Party can lose in 2012.

On last night's Anderson Cooper 360, Dana Loesch was back on and guess what she did? Went back to her bread and butter-- which was lying, misinforming, and being childish to other guests. Her idea to cut the deficit: more tax cuts for the rich and gut Medicare. And of course, she blamed the Democrats for the debt problems, with no facts to back it up. Loesch also supports this country defaulting for the sake of defeating Obama and the Democratic Party. 

At least Begala and Gergen have enough sense to tell the truth--especially on the Republicans rooting for the economy to fail so that they can attempt to win the Presidency come 2012, unlike a certain moron who hosts a radio show on KFTK.

July 18th, 2011: Loesch suggested that "mosques should have to disclose ties to any anti-American organizations."
On today's CNN Newsroom, St. Louis's leading hate jock Dana Loesch went on the air and made this statement: "Mosques should disclose if they have "ties to any organizations that present a conflict of interest to US security." 

LOESCH: Well, really quickly, 55 percent of American oppose tax hikes in the debt ceiling talks. But according to -- going along with Herman Cain's discussion here, I'm against mob rule.
But I believe that any sort of mosque that's built in a community needs to disclose whether or not it has ties to any organizations that present a conflict of interest to American security. I think that two-way street is fair, so hopefully we can have more of that in the future.
CARDONA: It is as far from presidential you can get. It's downright shameful. Would he ask the same of Christians, of Buddhists, of Hindus, of Jewish people wanting to build those kinds of institutions and places of worship in their communities?
He is in essence equating American Muslims, Americans in their community with al Qaeda and with Osama Bin Laden, downright shameful.
DOMINICK: This is so stupid and insulting. Herman Cain and anybody who shares this kind of idea that says you can't build a house of worship is a joke. It's insulting.
I'm no fan of religion myself, but this is too sad. He actually has a lot of executive experience. He should focus on that. Muslims have helped disrupt every plot in America. We need to be their friend, not their enemies and that's exactly what he's doing.


August 15th, 2011: Loesch defended Bachmann's question-dodging on AC360.
On last night's Anderson Cooper 360serial misinformer and CNN "Contributor" Dana Loesch was on the show spewing out numerous falsehoods and defending Michele Bachmann's question-ducking and flip-flopping. She also was on earlier in the day telling the same lies. Cornell Belcher was Loesch's opponent, and as usual Belcher hammered her telling lies. She claimed that Romney is a "Big Government RINO." Let's not forget this man ran on a social conservative platform during the 2008 Republican Primaries for President. She thinks Texas Governor Rick Perry is a Moderate Conservative, but Perry is a far-right homophobic secessionist loon and who is Bush 2.0. 

September 2011: Loesch was on to spew multiple falsehoods.

Why does CNN allow Dana Loesch on? Simple. Makes them more money and gets the right-leaning audience from Fixed Noise.


October 18th, 2011: On Anderson Cooper 360, she baselessly declared the "Nazis support the OWS Movement.
CNN "Contributor" and St. Louis's Leading Hatemonger Dana Loesch took to CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 last night to make outrageous statements about the Occupy Wall Street Movement, baselessly implying that the "Nazis love the movement." Patently false. 
And how many times does CNN's hosts get away with allowing Dana Loesch to spew out lies with little or no pushback?

In January 2012, her widely infamous "I'd drop trou and do it too" remark ended up significantly cutting her on-air time on CNN, and was condemned by at least a few CNN personnel, including the  usually Liberal-leaning Roland Martin (who is suspended by CNN for his anti-gay tweet).

Recently, Loesch has seldom ever been on the network.
