A New Trend: No Longer Using CNN as a Source for Content

A new trend has been occurring over the last several months: more and more people don’t want to use CNN as a source. Whether it is because CNN has lost all credibility or because it constantly reports fake news, issues retractions or makes big mistakes, many clients of mine refuse to have a CNN link in their content.

Every month, I work with dozens of clients producing content. The content ranges from blog posts to white papers to journalistic articles. These clients all have the same thing in common: they want in-depth, supported and well-written content.

But many, not all, of my clients are now making an interesting request: do not use CNN. They’ve never said that about any other website or publication before.

Ostensibly, clients don’t want it in their work because the Counterfeit News Network isn’t necessarily a legitimate news source anymore.

I’ve really been surprised by this new development. I have been professionally writing for about a decade ago and this is something completely new to me.

My New Piece at The Conservative Institute

Remember when I said in my last post that my workload has piled on in recent months? I was not kidding.

You can find me on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at The Conservative Institute, a new conservative media outlet. Its mission is to avoid clickbait articles and focus primarily on real conservatives news analysis.

Today, I published my first piece entitled ” WATCH: U.S. City Makes Veteran Take Down American Flag on D-Day.”

Here is a brief excerpt:

Come the Fourth of July, you may need to think twice before raising more than one American flag on your property after an incident took place in a Sacramento suburb. On June 6, the D-Day anniversary, Galt officials told Navy veteran Ronald Raeta and his wife, Sherri, to remove one of their two flag poles or be fined for violating city code.

The Raetas had installed two flag poles on the front lawn of their home and raised two American flags. Soon afterward, a complaint was made to city hall and a representative paid a visit to the Raeta residence.

Think Liberty: A New Weekly YouTube Channel

Despite my workload expanding and free time being limited, I have decided to launch a new weekly YouTube channel called Think Liberty.

Every week, I will post one five- to seven-minute video talking about three international issues, and dissecting each of those topics from a libertarian perspective. The first episode of this new endeavour covered the U.S. war on cash, Calgary’s bid for the 2026 Olympics and Argentina’s 100-year bond.

I’m a writer. Therefore, I’m not much of a raconteur like Orson Welles or an orator like Conrad Black (only in my dreams). But I will try my best in communicating effectively and outlining libertarian viewpoints on specific matters.

Here is Episode 1 of Think Liberty:

My Summer 2017 Reading List

Summer is finally here, and you know what that means: more reading!

My initial goal for the June-to-September period was to take a break from reading fiction, particularly Agatha Christie. However, as you can see from the image above, I got my hands on another Christie classic – the very first Hercule Poirot mystery.

For the next couple of months, I will be sinking my teeth into economics and fiction.

Here is my list:

“The Mysterious Affair at Styles” – Agatha Christie

“The Problem with Socialism” – Thomas DiLorenzo

“Hitler’s Beneficiaries” – Gotz Aly

“Wealth, Poverty and Politics” – Thomas Sowell

“Old Goriot” – Honore de Balzac

A talk with Leesa Donner on new special counsel for Trump-Russia probe

You have probably heard by now that the United States Justice Department has appointed a new special counsel for the Donald Trump-Russia investigation.

I speak with Leesa Donner, editorial director of LibertyNation, about the headline news. We talk about former FBI Director Robert Mueller, what this means for President Trump and how long the investigation may take.

Here is the video:
