CNN Hires Hack Trump Adviser to Spout Gibberish About Economics: …I would like to pause for a brief moment to commemorate the act of journalistic malpractice CNN has just committed by hiring conservative scribbler and Trump adviser Stephen Moore as an economics analyst. It is a doozy. …

In economics circles, Moore is looked at as a sort of tragicomic figure, the supply-side gang leader who can’t count straight. …

CNN has a habit of veering wildly from serious journalism from its Washington bureau or its online KFile investigative team to vomit-worthy infotainment in which toadies like Jeffrey Lord or—previously—Corey Lewandowski defend whatever the heck Donald Trump has just said. (The network has a lot of airtime to fill, and it fills it with mostly useless discussion panels.) You can guess which side the pendulum just swung to with Moore’s hire.

A network that is serious about delivering factual information instead of propaganda to viewers would not have made these hires.
