Well isn’t this interesting. CNN’s Oliver Darcy, who personally led the charge to have Alex Jones and InfoWars banned from Twitter, was on the air last week calling President Trump’s social media summit “alarming and dangerous” because it was just a gathering of “right-wing trolls.” In no way should the White House give a forum to the extremists.
Trump inviting right-wing extremists/trolls to the White House is maybe the clearest example of him seeking to validate fringe political allies. He's also boosting those people, of course, while working simultaneously to tear down legitimate news orgs. It's alarming & dangerous. pic.twitter.com/ADwvQ5rZh0

“Trump inviting right-wing extremists/trolls to the White House” is “also boosting those people,” complained the guy whose network decided on Tuesday to give a platform to white nationalist Richard Spencer.
Today on its valuable airwaves, CNN gave a platform to white nationalist Richard Spencer. There is literally nothing productive Spencer brings to the conversation. Whoever made this shameful decision should be fired. https://t.co/rKTTyc1OUY pic.twitter.com/o060SS47ZD

Does Darcy consider this CNN validating the opinions on those on the fringe of politics? Richard Spencer deserves a TV hit, but Alex Jones must be driven from all social media? What’s the deal here?

When you are so desperate to constantly attack Trump that you'll bring on Richard Spencer to tell you what you want to hear.

I’m so disconnected from cable news that when I find out @cnn paid Richard Spencer to come on today and say racism is good I don’t even know if I should be surprised.

There are all of like two dozen real white supremacists left in America, and if the DEM media didn't give them a platform for their bigotry they'd be stuck sieg hieling in their mom's basement with no one knowing they even exist!

@CNN trying desperately to keep white nationalism a thing. Losers!

Maybe Darcy and Brian Stelter will look into how a declared white nationalist was given airtime on their network? We know they miss Michael Avenatti hanging around, but come on … have some standards.
If only CNN had a media team who could get to the bottom of why their network put an actual Nazi on the air today.
