CNN goes first two weeks of October without any program reaching 1 million viewers

The network once known as the “most trusted name in news” started to lose public trust after its massive fake news about Iraq's alleged nuclear weapons, that actually never existed. This fake news cost the lives of thousands American soldiers (and countless Iraqis) and billions of dollars lost on a fake war against nothing. CNN continues to lose trust for its biased news against whoever did not vote for Biden, and its promotion of an extremist hate-culture against "the other" 84 million American voters. The result of dividing USA is that the fanatical network has gone 21 days without averaging a 7-digit viewership.

NYT claim: “China’s Bullying Is Becoming a Danger to the World and Itself”

Thomas Friedman claims in the New York Times that China is becoming dangerous, because it’s controlling more and more critical elements that until now were controlled by only the USA .

He sees the Chinese regime as “brutal” because the communist party is controlling China in the same way as Big Tech and Wall Street are controlling the USA.

He believes that China does not have the right to take back control of its offshore Taiwanese province, but seems to have no problem that the USA controlled Afghanistan, Iraq and Yemen, plus Panama and Puerto Rico; that the UK controls Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Caribbean islands; that Spain controls Catalonia; and that Germany controls Bavaria.

Thomas Friedman is a very talented writer. His world is a flat, one-dimensional world indeed, but he is very talented writer. A writer with a lot of blood from the Iraq war on his hands, but still a very talented writer.

Here is his column, for your judgement.
