(Liberty Bell) – We all know that CNN is pretty much the scum of the earth as far as news organizations go, what with the ridiculous left-wing slant they have — and yet try to pretend like the rest of us don’t notice it — and the war they have against President Trump, but the ridiculousness of this network keeps reaching new levels I didn’t even know existed.
Heck, the way it is now, none of us probably realized just how far gone down the rabbit hole this company has gone, but we can get some sort of idea by taking a gander at who they put on their “expert” panel to discuss the issue of climate change.
None other than Greta Thunberg.
Yes, that’s right, folks. A teenager with basically zero science background who has suffered with mental health issues for years, is now being touted as an expert by CNN.
And they wonder why they have no credibility left?
Here’s more from NY Post:
An upcoming CNN town hall on the coronavirus pandemic will feature 17-year-old Greta Thunberg alongside a panel of medical experts.
The program, “Coronavirus Facts and Fears,” also includes CNN broadcaster Sanjay Gupta, 50, former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, 71, and former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director Richard Besser, 60. CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, 52, will host alongside Gupta.
However, social media watchdogs are foaming at the mouth over the choice to place a teen climate activist on a panel with public health experts.
“What place does Greta Thunberg have in this town hall?” asks Twitter rabble-rouser Yashar Ali to his 618,000 followers. His rhetorical question was liked by more than 12,000 since this morning.
Her name is a top trending term on Twitter, with some 30,000 mentions on the platform in just a few hours.
And why wouldn’t folks be up in arms over this? You have a wacky teenage girl being used as a gimmick to help push a radicalized agenda over an issue that scientists don’t even agree on, which is no doubt eventually going to blow up all over this girl and cause her all kinds of problems in the future.
Liberals will do anything to make their solutions to fake problems, which also involve massive government intrusion into the private sector, easier to swallow for the masses, including using a child.
In a follow-up tweet, Ali clarified his rhetorical tweet with an explanation: “I understand that but this is a panel of top health experts and administrators. A climate activist would be better suited on a different panel. She’s not a climate scientist. It’s a matter of placement.”

CNN’s social media was soon served with an onslaught of virtual eye-rolls.
“Greta Thunberg? Now, she’s a COVID expert? @CNN is a joke!” reads a top response to the network’s Wednesday announcement. “Not picking on the kid,” said another. “Picking on a ‘news’ network for featuring a child to inform the public.”
“I remember when my thread about E. coli in Romaine lettuce went viral and trended on Twitter only to have CNN put Food Babe on the air to discuss the issue,” tweeted Dr. Eugene Gu, referring to another controversial health “expert” in the media. “Greta Thunberg on this panel is an improvement from that at least.”
Of course, liberal loonies from Hollywood rushed to defend Thunberg as some sort of child prodigy who possess the key to solving all of the world’s issues, starting with climate change.
“Unqualified men appear on cable all day every day, bloviating endlessly, but Greta Thunberg is a bridge too far? Ok,” tweeted writer Roxane Gay.
“She’s has extraordinary knowledge and she is the next generation that is left to clean this mess we’ve made. They wouldn’t have her there if she wasn’t a powerful voice,” wrote Oscar-winning actor Patricia Arquette.
“It’s a town hall, not a meeting of scientists,” another follower noted. “Some of their previous guests have been chef Jose Andres, director Spike Lee, author Laurie Garrett, etc etc.”
Look, no one truly understands climate change. So much of the science available right now contains contradictions that it’s really hard to know what is really happening. Even if it is happening, there are no doubt free market solutions that exist to help stop it from continuing. Government is most definitely not the answer to what ails us and the liberals in this country need to stop using a kid to push their agenda.
