Left-leaning outlets like CNN, MSNBC, and NBC have been peddling Democrat talking points for years. But now they’re starting to lose favor with the mob.
And CNN HQ went up in flames thanks to an extraordinary backstab.
Something you learn about the Democrat Party after observing them for years is that they don’t allow dissent.
They are often said to be the “party of tolerance,” yet when anyone offers a differing opinion, they will throw them right under the bus.
And that even goes for people who accidentally say something opposed to the party line.
You either get it right, or face the consequences.
Now, CNN is getting a taste of its own medicine after flubbing a story about Dylan Mulvaney.
A CNN correspondent was accused of “misgendering” during a segment about the Bud Light/Dylan Mulvaney partnership, generating uproar on social media among leftists.
CNN correspondent Ryan Young referred to Mulvaney as a “he,” using the pronoun that corresponds to his biological sex when the trans-identifying TikTok star has demanded to be referred to as a woman, while reporting on Bud Light’s drop in sales following its partnership with the transgender influencer.
“One bar was telling us, basically, they’re not going to serve [Bud Light] because they don’t like the way Dylan Mulvaney was treated after this whole controversy started. He, of course, is the transgender person they were going to sponsor and go along with …” Young stated.
“[Trans activists] didn’t like how Bud Light didn’t stand by him after all this,” Young added, using the pronoun “him” when Mulvaney prefers “they.”
Ari Drennen, an LGBTQ news journalist for the far-Left media watchdog group Media Matters, chastised CNN for airing the segment.
“Unbelievably bad CNN segment -fails to interrogate where the Bud Light boycott came from -launders perspectives of people who think their grandchildren will be harmed by the knowledge that trans people exist -misgenders Dylan Mulvaney,” Drennen tweeted. “This segment could’ve run on Fox News!”

“CNN correspondent Ryan Young misgenders Dylan Mulvaney twice during report, calls her ‘he’ and ‘him,’” wrote former NBCUniversal executive Mike Sington.
“[CNN] has had trans positive pieces before, even on [Dylan Mulvaney] herself,” another Twitter user said. “It has run positive trans-advocacy segments (recently on [Michael Smerconish]). Misgendering trans ppl in 2023 is not a faux pas but intentional bad politics (as well as blatantly unprofessional). Do better [CNN].”
Mulvaney chastised individuals who use his biological pronouns in a TikTok video last October, stating it should be unlawful for journalists to use he/him when referring to the trans campaigner.
“When someone writes that I’m a child predator solely based on the fact that I’m a trans woman, well, that’s just bullying,” Mulvaney said.
“Or even worse in my opinion are, like, the articles written about me using ‘he’ pronouns and calling me a man over and over again — I feel like that should be illegal,” he added. “I don’t know, that’s just bad journalism.”
Mulvaney claimed on TikTok this week that he was in Peru on a solo trip “to feel something” and “feel safe” following controversy over his Bud Light relationship.
“I’ve seen a lot of llamas. The people here are so kind. Mulvaney remarked on TikTok, “I feel very safe here.” “It’s a little sad that I had to leave my country to feel safe but that will get better eventually.”
