Duncan: It’ doesn’t have to be public, just so long as everyone knows

There is one thing that jumps out at me concerning the resignation of Zucker at CNN and the reaction, particularly within CNN to these events that really drives the point home

At Wednesday night’s meeting in DC, Cuomo’s former colleagues made it clear there was no love lost.  

‘An outside observer might say, “Well, looks like Chris Cuomo succeeded. He threatened. Jeff said, We don’t negotiate with terrorists, and Chris blew the place up.” How do we get past that perception that this is the bad guy winning?’ he said.

‘I think the issue is that it’s not a perception. What Jake just described is actually what happened here,’ echoed Chief White House Correspondent Kaitlan Collins.

Now I could write volumes about how, with rare fictional exceptions, it is unwise to tangle with a Sicilian who knows your secrets and holds a grudge (or do you think it’s a coincidence that all the Gov Cuomo criminal probes are closed by I digress) but the real story isn’t that team Cuomo exposed Zucker’s secret.

The real story is every person at CNN who is complaining about this scandal knew about it all along and these so called members of the 4th estate whose job it was to inform the public kept their mouths shut for years.

This is consistent with DaTechGuy’s 4th Law of Media Outrage

The degree of media exposure of the corruption or illegality committed by any individual or organization under investigation is directly proportional to its distance from the media’s ideology.

This was a repeat of the Harvey Weinstein story. As long as he was useful to the left the left/media was delighted to be 100% behind him and keep his actions a secret but once they became known in public circles suddenly he was beyond the pale.

But once the public knew what everybody at that table knew he became expendable per DaTechguy’s 2nde law of media outrage:

The level of acceptance of the positions and/or actions of any group or organization by the left and media is directly proportional to their current or potential value in electing liberal Democrats.

The idiot was no longer useful so he was out and those in media are outraged not because of the scandal but because the scandal was made public to those who should never know what the media gatekeepers don’t want them to know.

What a bunch of dishonorable bastards
