    CNN hires Trump’s former campaign manager

    Look past the fact that the Trump campaign’s door hadn’t yet hit Corey Lewandowski on his way out. Look past Lewandowski’s non-disclosure agreement that prevents him from sharing any confidential or disparaging information about Trump if he feels the unlikely urge to do so. Look past the reports of Lewandowski’s hostility toward women, including the grabbing of a female reporter in a confirmed incident he lied about. Look past his campaign’s continuous animosity toward journalists. Look past all those factors to give CNN the benefit of the doubt with this hire—perhaps Lewandowski does have some special insight—and the rationale still doesn’t hold after the commentator’s first few appearances.

    Take Lewandowski’s analysis of a Trump trade speech Tuesday: “This is Mr. Trump’s best speech of the presidential cycle. This is right on message, his core message of putting Americans first. This is about bringing jobs back to America.” Such banal shilling is by no means new to cable shows, and neither is the employment of political hacks. And to be fair, CNN interviewers have so far done a good job of pressing Lewandowski on his Trumpa fides. The question is why the network would reward all of Lewandowski’s reprehensible traits—particularly his former campaign’s utter disregard for the truth—in return for broken-record cable commentary. No need to speculate on why Americans’ trust in media remains at an all-time low.

  • Video: President Obama says when people concerned with fairness in the criminal justice system “attack police officers, you are doing a disservice to the cause” Also ,”any violence directed at police officers is a reprehensible crime and needs to be prosecuted.” “Even rhetorically, if we paint police in broad brush, without recognizing that the vast majority of police officers are doing a really good job and trying to protect people…fairly and without racial violence…then we’re going to lose allies in the reform cause.” “In a movement like Black Lives Matter, there are always going to be some folks who say things that are stupid or imprudent…and I don’t think you can hold well-meaning activists…responsible for everything uttered at a protest.”

    So we didn’t get the public option then because that would have been too efficient, and cost jobs?
