When it comes to “journalism,” CNN is setting a new standard, and it isn’t a good one. Here’s the latest example in a tweet linking a story by CNN’s “chief climate correspondent” about teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg:
Her manner is level and unflinching, her voice soft and halting and she admits she may be the most reluctant activist in modern times. But something about her raw honesty around a message of blunt-force fear turned this girl from invisible to global. https://t.co/ltZXPZLIym

Tons of fawning and Dem narrative pushing, zero actual journalism.
Holy crap, this is actually a tweet sent out by major news org.
No quotes or person attributed to said quote & no mention this is an opinion piece…….just full-fledged propaganda to brainwash the masses.

The desperate desire for messianic characters for the Left to follow would be funny if it weren’t so authoritarian in its ambition.
This over-the-too portrayal is a prime example of the religiosity underpinning #ClimateChange activism.

One of THE most annoying things about global media conglomerates is the way they pretend that someone a teenager "goes from invisible to global" without large powerful manipulative forces. Not "raw honesty." They don't promote "raw honesty" if they don't agree with it. https://t.co/C8yoHWK3kn

That CNN tweet sounds like it could have been written by Sarah Silverman.
