If you thought CBS could NOT humiliate themselves worse than they did when they announced they were leaving Twitter right after Elon reactivated President Trump’s account, you don’t know our idiotic mainstream media very well. These people have no “bottom” when it comes to looking like complete and total jackasses. CBS made this grand announcement, during a mass hysteria moment when many leftists were melting down on Twitter.
Here’s what they said:
CBS News is halting its activity on Twitter over Elon Musk’s turbulent and potentially devastating moves following his takeover of the company.
“In light of the uncertainty around Twitter and out of an abundance of caution, CBS News is pausing its activity on the social media site as it continues to monitor the platform,” Jonathan Vigliotti, CBS News national correspondent, said in a report about the latest chaos at the company on the “CBS Evening News” Friday.
Now, they’re back, less than 24 hours later, with a new message.
National Review reported on this silliness:
The announcement came on the heels of Elon Musk’s pledging, on Friday, to reinstate formerly banned Twitter accounts, including those of Jordan Peterson, Kathy Griffin, and the Babylon Bee. On Saturday, Musk issued a public poll via his own Twitter account to determine whether users wanted Donald Trump to be allowed to rejoin the platform. Despite Trump’s account’s reinstatement, the former president has not yet expressed any willingness to return to the platform, since he has set up a rival social-media outfit.
Following these developments, CBS decided to suspend all of its official social-media activity on Twitter, including its flagship account with nearly 9 million followers. This announcement came at a difficult time for Musk, as he tries to navigate Twitter toward financial solvency after massive layoffs, high-profile resignations, and uncertainty over his new monetization initiatives. Some pundits initially speculated that CBS’ move might be the first in a series of media outlets’ rushing to ditch Twitter.
Well, that certainly didn’t happen. They’re back and tweeting away.
These people are all completely insane.
Here’s what CBS said in their second deranged tweet: “After pausing for much of the weekend to assess the security concerns, CBS News and Stations is resuming its activity on Twitter as we continue to monitor the situation.”

What exactly are they “monitoring” anyway? Good Lord, these people are stupid.
And they all wonder why trust in our crazy, emotionally unbalanced media is at record lows. Who can take these nincompoops seriously?
Here’s what people online are saying:
“Lmaoooo you didn’t even last 24hrs”
“Congrats on making yourselves look like a complete joke.”
“CBS don’t go away mad, CBS just go away.”
“After pausing for much of the weekend, I have assessed that you’re a bunch of partisan clowns instead of a serious news organization. I continue to monitor the situation.”
“This is not an airport, no need to announce your departure or arrival.”
“no one cares if you leave”
“Go away. You sound like you think you are some type of authority here. You are nothing but propaganda that nobody wants here.”
“Lol… You people are clowns”
“You were unable to stay off Twitter for a day—that’s how addicted you are to peddling leftist propaganda.”
“During that pause, everyone on this app was safe from misinformation.”
“Why is CBS monitoring the situation? You don’t own Twitter. Only Elon can monitor Twitter. If you don’t like it. Shop for a commie platform that you’re comfortable with.”
“Congrats on being the CNN PLUS of Twitter boycotts”
“You people are pathetic.”
“I wonder why trust in corporate media plunges to the lowest level ever?”
Liberals have a mental illness. It’s called “Trump Derangement Syndrome” and it literally makes people do unexplained, mentally unstable things.
We need to find a cure. FAST.
