It’s always adorable when a CNN hack forgets to step outside the glass house before throwing stones.
OMG are you really that lacking in self awareness?

You work for CNN.

Diamond and Silk are sticking with their story that they’re being censored by Facebook, despite some very large holes in their narrative:
I've confirmed with Facebook that Diamond and Silk were contacted by email and phone by Facebook several times before their Fox News appearing saying no one had reached them. I have the emails.

Oh, and ThinkProgress bothered to actually look at Diamond and Silk's engagement numbers and found no evidence of any censorship. https://t.co/brcPf1g7WW
Great job, everyone.

And Fox News is giving them a platform:
So uh, this is still happening? Diamond and Silk are still claiming that Facebook has only reached out to them on Twitter. Is Fox goes to try to verify any of this or nah? pic.twitter.com/KZsoMhqUbY

And CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy just can’t believe what he’s seeing. Can you imagine? A prominent media outlet fostering the spread of misinformation?
I know we shouldn't be surprised, but it's astounding how Fox News allows individuals to go unchallenged while spreading misinformation on its platform. https://t.co/LxWaFTtwpz

Just astounding. And totally unprecedented.
Given @CNN's performance post-Parkland, woulda thought your threshold for "astounding" would be tougher to cross.

Remember how CNN continually spread misinformation with the victims of a shooting because they liked the message? https://t.co/nZCfbBGxud

Like you @CNN folks and the Hogg kid, for just one example? Yes, astounding.
— Jimmy MacSavage 超自然小弟弟 (@JimmyMcSavage) April 12, 2018
Should we count the number of times David Hogg was on CNN, making bogus claims and the hosts allowing him to get away with it. “The NRA terrorizes children.”
Isn’t that misinformation?
— Jay Caruso (@JayCaruso) April 12, 2018
Last time we checked, yeah.
Remember that time Stelter admitted he didn’t challenge Hogg on certain things?
— Brian Flood (@briansflood) April 12, 2018
Is that not what CNN did with David Hogg?
— Amber Athey (@amber_athey) April 12, 2018
In literally every single live TV interview, anchors have to decide when to interrupt, and when not to interrupt. This is not a surprising or new idea! Sometimes anchors get it 100% right, sometimes they don't. That was the point of my comment. Sadly, partisans distorted it.
— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) April 12, 2018
CNN anchors didn't stop Hogg from saying the NRA were "child murderers." The "fact checkers" were silent. Instead, Alisyn Camerota told Hogg how brave and eloquent he was. So don't lecture about other networks going soft on guests. We won't even get into the Town Hall!

Um…..shall I bring up David Hogg? It's not cool for any network to do it, but you guys have done it as well so don't act like an angel. https://t.co/FdEYTIAxRj
— Mary #FlyTheW (@mchastain81) April 12, 2018
Exactly. They’ve been doing it for years.
You idiots actually really did that at CNN with David Hogg. Thats a fact. And you have done it many many other times as well. Shut the hell up
