Aly Goes Ballistic!

July 12, 2017

That was weird: Approximately 47 minutes before Carpe Diem posted, “Aly Goes Silent,” New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota had gone ballistic! In a CNN article entitled, “Alisyn Camerota: Why I’m Breaking Up with Twitter,” Aly goes on a rather rabid rant, declaring, “Dear Twitter (attn: trolls), It’s over. I’m breaking up with you. I know it’s sad. We’ve been together a long time.”

Elaborating, Aly writes, “You’re a shadow of your former self, the one I was first attracted to. It’s no fun to be with you anymore. You’ve become mean and verbally abusive. In fact, you gross me out. You’re a cesspool of spleen-venting from people who think it’s acceptable to insult other people in public and anonymously.”

Realizing, perchance, how her harshness may need to be abated re her fans, she remarks, ” I don’t mean to be harsh. Occasionally, you do let a nice, thoughtful person sneak through with a positive comment or constructive criticism. And I want you to know how much those messages have meant to me…. For years, these comments made all the negativity worth it — especially coming from those users who stood up for me and fought the trolls on my behalf. God bless them.”

But, then, perchance to her devoted Fox & Friends Weekend fans, she remarks or, more charitably, her harsher critics, Aly continues, “Of course, some of this is my fault. I’ve been leading you on. I’ve made you think I like you more than I really do. The truth is, I haven’t cared about you for a long time — in fact, I’ve been avoiding you.” Cutting to the quick, she adds, “I go weeks at a time without reading you, leaving you to prattle on thinking you have my attention….So, I’m done. I’m moving on. I’m looking for something else, something real and lasting.”

Offering a sop to her besotted loving acolytes, she promises, “And to the tens of thousands of folks who took time to follow me, I trust we’ll find a kinder place to reconnect.”

Hope you really will, Aly.

Aly Goes Silent

July 11, 2017

NYT: “Some [CNN] hosts have considered abandoning their social media accounts because of abuse.” Apparently, New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota has abandoned her Twitter Tweeps for the security of a “foxhole” at CNN. But, seemingly, her co-anchor Chris Cuomo has her covered for the time being.

The author noticed this morning that he was following one less person and/or entity. When he investigated, he realized it was none other than the lovely Aly whom he had followed for virtual aeons in Twitter time. When he went to @AlisynCamerota, the site simply said, “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!” When he checked @NewDay and clicked on the @AlisynCamerota link it said the same. However, the @ChrisCuomo link worked as usual.

Guess Aly was one of those CNN hosts that abandoned her social media accounts (at least, Twitter). Post President Trump’s win, Aly has seemed to take the loss of the 2016 Democratic party standard bearer–personally. The lovely Aly seems always to be smirking, rolling her eyes, or evidencing some negative body language when she interviews a pro-Trump interviewee: And, the panels always appear to bash Trump relentlessly to the delight of her and Chris. Not to mention the “Russia, Russia, Russia” meme.

Aly and Chris, it may be painful: But, it is time to move on. Donald J. Trump is the forty-fifth President. And, you need to start covering what Americans care about, i.e., their economic, physical, and existential well-being. Buck up!

 

Chris Cuomo Finally Admits CNN Anti-Trump

July 11, 2017

Kellyanne Conway: “You guys have made a business decision to be anti-Trump.” New Day co-host Chris Cuomo‘s concurred, “And, you guys have also made a decision.” [Italics added for emphasis]. Wow!

It was a rare moment in media history when Chris admitted to his viewers that CNN had made a business decision to be anti-Trump instead of being unbiased in its coverage of POTUS. For political junkies, the practically thirty-five-minute interview was practically partisan polemic porn. The two fought with a Coliseum-like feral ferocity showcasing CNN honcho Jeff Zucker’s early morn co-anchor Chris with the first successful Presidential campaign manager Kellyanne.  The New York Cuomo scion versus the New Jersey girl scrapper: And, the girl ate the boy’s lunch.

Epic must-see TV! Especially the last few minutes. Vid, supra, may be NSFW depending on your workplace. Enjoy at your own risk!
