Remember when CNN tracked down the guy who made an animated GIF of Donald Trump wrestling the CNN logo and threatened to dox him? We’d thought KFile had quietly faded away, but it’s back, just in time for the recall election of California Gov. Gavin Newsom. Radio host Larry Elder is the leading Republican in the race to replace Newsom, and CNN is her just in time to report on Elder’s long history of sexist remarks, having combed back as far as 1996 to find material.
Top California recall candidate Larry Elder has a long history of making disparaging comments about women https://t.co/HmX0epGr60

Andrew Kaczynski, Em Steck, and Drew Myers report:
… a CNN KFile review of his comments, dating back to 1996, shows a lengthy history.
In another previously unreported comment from a January 2017 radio show, Elder mocked women attending the Women’s March as “obese.”
“When you look at all these women that have marched — something like 2 million women — Donald Trump has probably gotten more obese woman off the couch and in the streets, working out, than Michelle Obama did in eight years,” he said on an episode reviewed by CNN.
He’s obviously dangerous and must be taken down.
The funniest part of this is @KFILE pretending to be offended by talk radio humor like a joke about getting obese women off the couch to march against Trump. @larryelder has millions of listeners and eons of audio recordings and the best @CNN can do are these lame examples #fail https://t.co/Cz6jywKWLl

“Glass ceiling? Ha! What glass ceiling?” Elder said in a 1996 ad.
Oh! Here come the hit pieces! This is a great sign. Gavin is scared!

Translation – we don’t want @larryelder to win so we will smear him. Right on. Solid journalism.

You can tell how scared the entire media entity is of this election. Even with Newsom cheating they know Elder has a shot. pic.twitter.com/LGbrP8TvpX

You remain the best marketing arm of the DNC

So does Andrew CUOMO. What’s your point?
— BeeQuiet58 (@cct41us) August 20, 2021
Is this the same CNN whose nightly host helped his brother strategize against women who said he’d sexually harassed them? And he still has a job in media?

Gavin cheated on his wife and married his mistress.

Wait! This is more important than the Taliban’s treatment of women? Lets do a story on that please🤪

Treating women like adults is not disparaging.

Wow! Where were you when Hunter's laptop came to light last October?

Never forget that Hunter Biden said the n-word in a text to his lawyer and the “anti-racists” in the media went about their merry way.

Hunter has an exclusive pass to say it.

Larry is Black.
So if you can't attack him as racist, you attack him as sexist. https://t.co/gFW0uxaRgf

It never changes. The piece of crap Communist News Network @CNN will attack a Republican, hell even a Libertarian, Independent like @larryelder. But won't attack not one Democrat. https://t.co/CfLGg3CuVx

Why are you so invested in this CNN?

Would it be better if he exposed himself on a zoom call?
— Jing Jackson Wang (@JingJacksonWang) August 20, 2021
You can do that — expose yourself masturbating in front of women on a Zoom call — and still work for CNN.
Every Republican candidate who seizes on MSM oppo research to attack another Republican, when the obvious result will be to suppress the overall recall vote, is effectively a stalking horse for @GavinNewsom. The recall format lets you make a positive case for yourself. So do that
