Utterly Distraught & DISGUSTED That CNN Has Re-Hired Depraved ‘Jeffrey WONKING Toobin’ — I Am Done With CNN.

by Anura Guruge

Click here to access the CNN original. Google for plenty more coverage.

This is BEYOND THE PALE. I am so disgusted with CNN. That is it. I have been watching less & less of CNN. I will try & remove the channel from my ‘TV’.

I used to like & admire Toobin. I really did.

But, this was DISGUSTING. This was perverted. IF he was a TEENAGER I would gladly cut him slack. But, he was a 60-year old man. A father.

Disgusting. I hope ADVERTISERS have a say in this. Boycott CNN. Disgusting.

President Biden FINALLY Adds ‘Sign Language’ To ‘White House’ Press Briefings.

by Anura Guruge

I asked the question nearly a year ago (as you can see from the image at the top).

I noticed that it has come to pass under President Biden — THOUGH all media outlets (e.g., CNN) are NOT showing it! Can’t figure out why. MSNBC does so, from what I can see,

Have YOU noticed it. I no longer (SMILE) watch as many White House Press Briefings as I used to. They are not as entertaining as they used to be — BUT that is a good thing.

Though I cannot read sign language I am GLAD that it is available. Yes, I do like watching them. Some, as you know, are very expressive.

CNN, Covering The British COVID Vaccinations, Claims That The People of Cardiff, Wales, Are ‘English’!

by Anura Guruge

Well if the U.S. President, Trump, cannot distinguish between England, Wales, Scotland, N. Ireland & the U.K., I guess we shouldn’t expect CNN to get it right either. This was CNN’s ‘Brooke Baldwin’ doing today’s 1pm news.

Yes, she was very excited to get a live report from Cardiff — which happens to be the capital of Wales.

She was gushing …

She then says something along the lines of: “… the English people of Cardiff, Wales … among the first to get the vaccine …“.

Oh, dear!

English = England

Welsh = Wales

Scottish = Scotland

Irish = Boston (Smile).

2020 Trump v. Biden Election Polling — Didn’t We Learn Anything From 2016?

by Anura Guruge

This afternoon I heard John King, on CNN, prattling on about election polling. For a second I thought they were doing a clip from 2016. It was exactly the same. How Trump’s path to victory was torturous etc. etc.

They all got it wrong, entirely, in 2016. Don’t they have any shame?

I am so fed up of this charade. Aren’t YOU?

It is as if we learnt nothing from 2016.

I followed the CNN recommendation:

I have NO problem or concerns being a guinea pig for the COVID-19 vaccine. Does not scare I. I don’t think it will kill me & I am sure I can deal with any other symptoms. These could be famous last words.

I have previously taken part in a polio vaccine trial (unbeknownst) & in the 1970s I did volunteer & v. successfully take part in an asthma prevention drug trial (i.e. Intal). So, I am not new to this.

‘British Pathé’ Archives & Coverage Now Available From Streaming — Including Roku.

by Anura Guruge

Click image to access the official ‘British Pathé TV’ Website.

What interests I the MOST (SMILE).

Click to ENLARGE.

I grew up in Ceylon, in the 1950s & 1960s, seeing the 10-20 minute ‘British Pathe‘ newsreel each time we went to ‘the films‘.

It was MY precursor, all those decades ago, to today’s CNN & MSNBC.

So lots of nostalgia when it comes to deal ol’ ‘British Pathe‘.

PLUS, they are plugging the railroad documentaries they have. Have to watch this.

Right now, with LIVE cricket back, I do NOT have the the time. But, the 1st lull in the cricket … Here I come. SMILE.

Enjoy. This should be good.

Yes, I will get it on my Roku. That is what makes sense for I.

What Possessed ‘Jonathan Turley’ To Perform Hara-Kiri On His Credibility?

by Anura Guruge

Click to access CNN coverage. Google for plenty more.

This was disappointing and SAD. A grown man, who I used to think was pretty damn clever, just sacrificing his credibility and coming across like a total jackass — and I am NOT sure for why or for what?

I used to enjoy watching him on TV. He was good. But, today. It was like he had been drugged.


Nobody could have paid him ENOUGH to perform that hara-kiri. I doubt whether MSNBC or CNN will ever have him on one of their shows. So his meia access, at best, will be limited to Fox.

Shame. I felt real bad for him. Poor guy. Must be desperate — very desperate.

Sri Lanka, Alas, Got Its 15-Minutes Of Media Fame In The U.S. Today — 1st Time Many Would Have Heard The Name.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE. This from CNN. All media outlets featured the story.

Yes, yes, yes. There was the 2004 ‘Christmas’ tsunami — but, Sri Lanka had to share that tragic news with, at a minimum with Thailand & Indonesia.

Not so with the Easter 2019 atrocity. Sri Lanka on its own. TV news started with the Sri Lanka story. This was BIG.

I can assure you that this would have been the first time millions of Americans ever heard of ‘Sri Lanka’. I know that they don’t know.. I live with it every day.

As of now some will remember — alas with the ‘terrorist’ connotation.

Well, I guess we can’t have it all.

All Of The TV ‘Government Shutdown’ Clocks Are ONE DAY OFF — i.e., Day Short; ’12’ When It Should Be ’13’.

by Anura Guruge

CNN. Go to cnn.com and check.

MSNBC — TV channel. Photo of TV.


Because they are counting the DIFFERENCE.

It needs to be INCLUSIVE.

People do it all the time when they are doing dates.

They take the DIFFERENCE between the two days. For some applications that is ‘OK’, BUT not when you are counting something like a SHUTDOWN.

You have to INCLUDE Day 1, in this case, Saturday, December 22, 2018.

My calendar above shows it clearly.

But, try a simple example. Shutdown started Dec. 22. So, how many days shutdown at the end of Dec. 24. It is 3-days, NOT 2.

I actually saw Anderson Cooper talking about the shutdown being in its 13th day, above the CNN clock that said ’12’!
