Neil Cavuto wants to know how CNN feels being called to the carpet by a president – or president-elect.

Cartoon Sums Up What CNN’s Trump “Journalism” Really Amounts To

Robert Gehl asks: how does it feel?
Neil Cavuto wants to know how CNN feels being called to the carpet by a president – or president-elect.
Because Fox knows.
For eight years, the nation’s top cable news network has been the whipping boy for the Left, led on by Barack Obama.
Well, now it’s payback time.
On his “Your World” program Thursday night, Cavuto gave a three-minute commentary about President-Elect Donald Trump’s refusal to take a question from a CNN reporter while calling them “fake news” at a press conference earlier this week.
“Ouch!” he started. “How’s all that going down, CNN?”
“It’s insulting, isn’t it, being called to the carpet by the next leader of the free world after years of giving the present one all but a free pass. You can’t figure out suddenly not being in.
“It bugs you when someone questions whether you’re ‘fair,’ doesn’t it? Or cuts you to your journalistic core, doesn’t it?”
“Take it from me, taking truth to power can be powerfully unsettling if that power sets its sights on you, and attacks you, and dismisses you, and ignores you. It didn’t matter so much when it wasn’t about you before, CNN.
“Very different now that it’s you being singled out, CNN. Doesn’t seem very fair now, does it? The shabby treatment of your reporters not very nice now is it? That’s life, I guess, not fair, often not balanced. Now you’re experiencing what we have been living. Now you’re the ones royally foxed. And the irony is, I feel your pain. You never came to our defense so allow me to come to yours.”
“You are better than BuzzFeed,” he continued. “But the buzz is you’re getting fed to the wolves. Isn’t it obnoxious and unfair how some celebrate your plight? Kind of feels like the way you celebrated ours doesn’t it? They say payback is a bitch. If only you take a moment to rewind the tape and see the shoe is on the other foot. Or am I confusing it with the one kicking you in the ass? You see it’s hard to tell from where I sit. Back then your silence was deafening. Very different now, isn’t it? And I suspect, just suspect, not much fun is it? Weird.”
Wow, that was brutal.
