CNN's Cuomo Invites Kellyanne Conway To A Gish Gallop Debacle




 Gish Gallop
... is a technique, named after the creationist Duane Gish who employed it, whereby someone argues a cause by hurling as many different half-truths and no-truths into a very short space of time so that their opponent cannot hope to combat each point in real time.

Kellyanne Conway Gish Gallops Chris Cuomo
Last night CNN's Chris Cuomo solidified my belief many TV news production teams and on-air hosts are about ratings and little more. Cuomo has a tendency to seek and book conservative talking heads on his Prime Time show for his version of the CNN on-air guest combat model. The model has grown tiring and trite. Viewers know that the liberal guest will go Left; they also know the conservative guest will go Right. While biased I must state the conservative guest are more often than not GOP operatives who serve their wallets via lucrative CNN paychecks as well as Trump talking heads who serve their leader via spewing garbage.

What follows is a serious of video to make a case, Cuomo should avoid offering platforms for highly paid liars. That mission is well served by Fox News and Sinclair broadcasting along with many right-wing radio hosts.  

First a piece of Cuomo with Conway. The interview ran for 39 minutes and at times was outright excruciating in its silliness. There were moments when the host succumbs to Conway's slick offensive assertions he actually defended himself as if trying to wave of the wind from his face while standing in a Cat 5 hurricane. 
Huffington Post published a piece earlier today with Conway's husband, longtime Trump critic, seems to do what Cuomo should have done early in his 39-minute debacle.

And, Cuomo continued with the ridiculous.
After Cuomo allowed 39 minutes of a professional Gish Gallop employed by a person who lies form the moment he awakens until he lays down his iPhone in the wee hours, Don Lemon follow Cuomo's Prime Time with the most apropos question of 2018.  "Why?"

What follows is a prime example of TV journalism as it polices itself with necessary questioning of what might be a cheap ratings trick via Cuomo.  He obviously wants to have more conservative viewers during his time slot. But at what cost? Why offer a platform to a documented liar who works for a pathological liar whose shared mission is to pull the wool over the minds of certain segments of the population. 

Watch as Lemon's disbelieving nonverbals regarding Cuomo's comments. The Prime Time host's remarks about playing the victim to show core values of Trumpism is pure malarkey. "......they attack me!" They attack everyone other than Trumps family and Cuomo offering himself up on a metaphoric guillotine is pure bunk and not healthyTV news.


Yes, Conway performed well for Trump while Cuomo ...well...

Witches And Hexes Via Trumpism




Related imageIf the phantom guy who comments about my writing more and less relying on video to carry my message wants to comment on this pro-Trump activist, feel free to do so and I will publish the comment.

There is about enough need to comment on the comments from Amy Kremer as there was a need to challenge Trump's proclamation against Obama's birth, Trump Tower secret taping via Obama, and even less need when one considers Mexico paying for the wall. What we have here is entertainment for Trump supporters via wallowing in WWE like rhetoric. Actually, the fill-in host Ali Velshi should have in some way commented about the insanity of such statements on international TV. If hosts allow such spreading of Chicken-Little like insanity it lowers the credibility of the network and the host.

Mediaite and the video clip. 
The essence of trumpism: "...witches and hexes."

Actually, we shouldn't have experienced any surprise with that which emanates from Kremer's mouth. YouTube is full of video segments of her zany punditry on behalf of all things Trump (and US conservatism). How about a sample? What follows is one three minute example. Linked, here.
