Jeffrey Lord Points Out CNN and Media's Hypocrisy On Protecting The First Amendment: 'First Amendment for Me But Not for Thee'


During Tuesday’s edition of The Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham and her panel reacted to CNN’s lawsuit against the Trump administration for revoking Jim Acosta’s “hard pass.” The panel included two former CNN employees, Jeffrey Lord and Howie Kurtz. Lord, the author of a new book called Swamp Wars, pointed out that CNN has demonstrated selective moral outrage when it comes to their support for the First Amendment. According to Lord, “When people are out there attacking Fox News advertisers or trying to get Fox destroyed, when they are going after conservative contributors or commentators, whether it's on Fox News or in conservative media, they are silent on all of this and so to is the White House Correspondents’ Association.” Lord pointed out that he attended a White House Correspondents’ Dinner where they were “all about the First Amendment.” Following the dinner, Lord said he asked Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity if the Correspondents’ Association had ever defended them “in their various troubles when people were trying to take them off the air.” Lord summarized the establishment media’s philosophy as “First Amendment for me but not for thee.”
