CBS "News" Fired Catherine Herridge As She Was Pursuing Stories About Joe Biden's Decrepitude -- And Then Seized Her Notes, Including the Names of Her Confidential Administration Sources

Why don't you trust the media, bigot?

Jonathan Turley wrote of the suspicious timing of the firing:

The timing of Herridge's termination immediately raised suspicions in Washington. She was pursuing stories that were unwelcomed by the Biden White House and many Democratic powerhouses, including the Hur reporton Joe Biden's diminished mental capacity, the Biden corruption scandal and the Hunter Biden laptop. She continued to pursue these stories despite reports of pushback from CBS executives, including CBS News President Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews.

Nick Arama from RedState:

This concerned many that this could "chill" reporting and sources providing information to reporters. Some like Turley and journalist Brit Hume said they had never heard of anything like this before.

Now SAG-AFTRA is coming to Herridge's defense, demanding that CBS "News" give her back her notes and the names of her informants:

SAG-AFTRA strongly condemns CBS News' decision to seize Catherine Herridge's reporter notes and research from her office, including confidential source information. This action is deeply concerning to the union because it sets a dangerous precedent for all media professionals and threatens the very foundation of the First Amendment.

It is completely inappropriate for an employer to lay off a reporter and take the very unusual step of retaining and searching the reporter's files, inclusive of confidential source identification and information. From a First Amendment standpoint, a media corporation with a commitment to journalism calling a reporter's research and confidential source reporting "proprietary information" is both shocking and absurd.

The retention of a media professional's reporting materials by their former employer is a serious break with traditional practices which supports the immediate return of reporting materials. We urge CBS to return this material to Catherine in support of the most basic of First Amendment principles. We are encouraged by recent outreach by CBS News to SAG-AFTRA on this matter, and we are hopeful that it will be resolved shortly.

I would always laugh darkly when Brit Hume would claim that CBS News is a straight-shooting organization because it's run by David Rhodes, supposedly not a leftist. Just merely the brother of Obama's Brain, Ben Rhodes.

Brit Hume's sense of who is or who is not leftwing, and who is an objective or even conservative-leaning "news professional," is about as well-calibrated as Meghan McCain's.

In related media corruption, CNN anchor John Avlon is running for Congress as --

Wait, this can't be right.

It says here that John Avlon is a Democrat, and apparently a MAGA-hating liberal extremist Democrat, but I know my eyes must be deceiving me, because when he was on CNN he claimed to be an objective journalist without fear or favor for either party.

And yet... I can't shake the nagging feeling that someone is lying to me here.

Former CNN host and political analyst John Avlon is running for Congress. He announced his candidacy for New York's 1st congressional district.

He's running as a Democrat - did you have any doubts? - and it's all about saving democracy because of Trump. Are you a MAGA minion? He's coming for you.

Finally, some news from last week that I missed, but a great way to start the weekend:

Ratings-disaster CNN is looking to cut $50 million from their insipid partisan propaganda-anchors' bloated salaries!

Doomed CNN, a far-left propaganda outlet that spreads conspiracy theories and violence, is looking to cut "more than $50 million" in anchor salaries.

Let's start with the current salaries. You are not going to believe how much these assholes are reportedly paid per year:

Anderson Cooper: $20 million
Wolf Blitzer: $15 million
Jake Tapper: $8.5 million
Chris Wallace: $8 million
John Berman, Kate Bolduan, Sara Sidner: $1 to $2 million

Jake Tapper might be forced to economize and hire smaller and less-skillful bulls!

My dick just said "Bitches leave" like Clarence Bodikker in RoboCop.
