WILL CAIN (HOST): CNN, if you look at their front page, looks like it's January 7. I'm serious. It could be January 7 if you went to CNN.com. How do I know that? Because look at the headlines right now: Revelations show the extreme danger Trump poses. Subhead: In Trump's crazed final days in office, the top military officer was shaken by his refusal to concede and feared he might attempt a coup. It goes on and on like this all about January 6. I mean, still January 6.

That's their primary news story, that and COVID. All they talk about is COVID, and, boy, are they fear-mongering. They are here to tell you you are about to die if you don't get vaccinated. Of course, first, it was locked down, keep out of school, shut down your business. Then it was wear your masks everywhere you go, wear your masks outside, and now it's vaccinations.

Do you really think this is about getting society to a safer, more healthy place? I mean, flash the graph up one more time, CNN. 607,000 people dead. You are only finding these moments to instill more fear, to get more ratings.

If I'm going on to your website on July 16 and it looks like it did on January 7, you're hanging on to what got you to the top, baby. That's when your ratings were soared. And you're going to ride that thing out until it is completely ground into the dirt. And by the way, it almost is. But you should be ashamed. You should be ashamed for this fear-mongering. Just like I said a minute ago, you have no moral high ground. No matter how much you try to preen, you are morally inferior.

And this story should highlight it because as you've moved from lockdowns to mass vaccinations, did you talk about this, the offshoots of your policies over the past year? And this isn't limited to CNN and it's not limited to Democrats, Republicans embrace shutdowns as well. And then there's this over the year 2020, overdose deaths reached 93,000 in America. 93,000 overdose deaths. That's up almost 30% from the year prior. 30%, and that's just an overdose. What about depression rates? What about suicide rates? What about lost learning year? What about mental illness from seeing fear and risk everywhere you turn? What about loss of livelihoods? For sure. Sure. CNN. Keep promoting your fear porn. Got to hang onto those January 7 ratings.
