Don’t kid yourself: The corporate liberals care nothing about protecting women

Ever since the #MeToo movement started, we’ve been told by democats that we must #BelieveWomen.

Yet when it comes to telling womens’ stories of abuse and harassment, the media and progressives do everything they can to bury the stories to protect their friends in high places.

Apparently it’s only acceptable to #BelieveWomen when they accuse republican men (even with scant-to-no proof).

NBC killed Ronan Farrow’s expose on Harvey Weinstein in their desire to protect predators.

ABC News spiked a story exposing the truth behind pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Obviously, the above two stories have a certain power couple connection – the Clintons. Funny how the two alphabets killed these stories at the time Hillary Clinton was running for president. Just a coincidence, I guess.

Now comes word that Nike is apparently victim-shaming a women runner who claims that Nike’s former trainer, Alberto Salazar , put her through physical and mental abuse.

The NY Post reports that athlete Mary Cain, while working with Salazar on Nike’s Oregon Project, the coach forced her to lose weight and ignored her acts of self-harm. Just 17 at the time, Cain describes scenes where Salazar would weigh her in front of her teammates and publicly shame her if she wasn’t hitting her weight.

Nike cut ties with Salazar this year after he was banned for 4 years from athletics for doping offenses.

Nike says they will launch an investigation and from their statement: “These are deeply troubling allegations which have not been raised by Mary or her parents before. Mary was seeking to rejoin the Oregon Project and Alberto’s team as recently as April of this year and had not raised these concerns as part of that process.”

The NY Post says that other women are backing Cain’s claims. From their report:

Multiple prominent runners, including New York City Marathon winner Shalane Flanagan, have spoken out in support of Cain. Olympic runner Kara Goucher backed up Cain’s allegations and criticized Nike’s handling of the situation on Twitter Friday.

“So [Nike] responds to [Cain],” Goucher wrote. “Takes the time to victim shame Mary, before saying they will investigate. I hope you come to me, because I have stories to match all of Mary’s claims and so much more. Don’t let this be more lip service, actually do something.

As a result of this scandal, Nike CEO Mark Parker is stepping down to become executive chairman of the company on January 13, 2020. He endorsed Hillary Clinton for president in 2016.

Just another example of progressives’ and their double standards: They claim to care about women yet put politics, power and profits over the truth and well-being of women.

More #FakeNews: ABC airs Kentucky gun range video as Turkish “bombing” of Syria

ABC apologized for their “mistake:”

“CORRECTION: We’ve taken down video that aired on “World News Tonight” Sunday and “Good Morning America” this morning that appeared to be from the Syrian border immediately after questions were raised about its accuracy,” the network tweeted. “ABC News regrets the error.”

This was NO MISTAKE. It was an attempt to sway peoples’ opinion about President Trump and his recent actions in Syria.

The MSM is ramping up their attempts to influence the 2020 elections. Don’t be fooled by the #FAKENEWS.

Read about the whole “apology” here.

Black advocacy groups want a “civil rights audit” of CNN

Al Sharpton approved.

From Hollywood Reporter: CNN is facing calls to diversify its executive ranks from two prominent organizations that advocate for African-Americans, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the National Association of Black Journalists.

The broadside began on Tuesday, when the NABJ blasted the network, saying it is “concerned about the lack of black representation within the ranks of CNN’s executive news managers and direct reports to CNN president Jeff Zucker.”

The organization, which pointed out that CNN has no black executive producers, called for a “civil rights audit” of the network. After a late January meeting was canceled, it pushed again for a meeting with CNN’s leadership, which is unwilling to meet with the NABJ if one of its top officers, Roland Martin, is present. Martin, who serves as vp digital for the NABJ, has a contentious history with CNN, his former employer, and has been critical of the network.

“We have made it abundantly clear that we would be more than happy to sit down with the rest of their leadership team as soon as possible, and that offer still stands,” CNN said Tuesday in a statement. (A spokesperson would not comment for this story.)

But, the NABJ is not budging. “We ain’t meeting unless I’m in the room,” Martin said on his digital show, #Roland Martin Unfiltered.

The NAACP joined the fray on Wednesday night, criticizing CNN and Zucker. “CNN’s lack of black representation in leadership roles is troubling and another example of the media industry’s reluctance to address an issue that continues to plague newsrooms across the country,” the organization said. “NAACP finds it offensive that CNN president Jeff Zucker refuses to address this issue.”

CNN leadership is said to internally echo a commitment to hiring more diverse employees, including executives, but did not address the company’s diversity goals in the released statement. “The relationship between CNN and NABJ is very important to us,” the network said Tuesday. “As we have told them many times, we look forward to a thoughtful discussion about how both of our organizations can continue to work together.”

The organization joined the NABJ in asking CNN parent company WarnerMedia to “conduct a diversity and inclusion audit of all its news divisions.”

More advocacy organizations are expected to issue statements criticizing CNN’s executive-level diversity and unwillingness to unconditionally meet with the NABJ, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Barring a meeting with CNN leadership, the NABJ is pushing for a meeting with the network’s owner, AT&T, and CEO Randall Stephenson.

“It’s vital to point out that not once has CNN disputed anything in the NABJ letter when it comes to their lack of black executives,” a person involved in the effort said. “Their deflection to a personal issue hasn’t gone unnoticed by black staffers at CNN and NABJ members.”

The NABJ has recently met separately with the leadership of Fox News and CBS News, including executives Suzanne Scott and Susan Zirinsky, and has a meeting scheduled for next week with ABC News.
