<p>Speaking of the hysterical outrage machine being turned up to a 10 after Donald Trump&rsquo;s birtherism statement Friday morning, the pathetic behavior by the media continued into the afternoon as CNN host Ashleigh Banfield and media reporter Dylan Byers worried that Donald Trump and his supporters could undermine the media to the point that the country would look like Saddam Hussein&rsquo;s Iraq.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Before going any further, it&rsquo;s important to call out the hypocrisy from Banfield and Byers for their despicable and desperate fear-mongering concerning a dictator seeing as how their own network helped harbor one for years.&nbsp;</p>
