Although we likely didn’t need any more proof that the mainstream media has become a circus in 2019, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer donned his metaphorical clown shoes once again.
Impeachment has been a catalyst for the implosion of the infotainment industry as of late. The hyperbole has hit hyper speed in recent weeks, as CNN and Fox News continue to pull themselves apart in diametrically opposed rants meant to increase ratings and revenue, each one attempting to outdo their competitor in the drama department.
The latest “made to go viral” moment comes to us from Wolf Blitzer, longtime CNN host, who purposefully attempted to annoy White House adviser Kellyanne Conway with an inexcusable and unprofessional comment on her marriage to frequent Trump critic George Conway.
“It’s a political question, it’s a substantive question and I don’t want to talk about your marriage because I know that there are issues there,” Blitzer said before a shocked Conway interrupted.
Conway then went off.
“What did you just say? Did you just say there are issues there? You don’t want to talk about… why did you say that?” Conway asked.
“I think you embarrassed yourself,” she said. “I’m embarrassed for you because this is CNN now. I looked up to you when I was in college and law school. I would turn on CNN to see what Wolf Blitzer had to say about war, famine, disruption abroad, I really respected you for all those years as somebody who would give us the news. Now the news is what somebody’s husband says on a different network.”
The moment may very well have been a planned stunt by the beleaguered network, who were facing a down day in the ratings due to the lack of public impeachment hearings scheduled for Thursday.
