If she were a guy, she’d be a dickhead. Poppy Harlow, lacking the the humanity to see what she has done, and unable to apologize for her offensive coverage of the Steubenville verdict, is outraged over the backlash from this puke-worthy coverage of the two Steubenville dirtbags who raped an unconscious girl. Yay Team!
As a matter of fact, she’s not only Outraged, she’s taking it personally.
Instead of apologizing or listening to the complaints that the network was soft on rapists due to their Steubenville rape convictions coverage, CNN is outraged and dismissive.
Today The Wrap reported:
Poppy Harlow, covering the events in Steubenville, particularly hard.
“Poppy is taking this extremely personally as a woman,” said one executive. “She’s outraged that someone would think she’d do such a thing” as slant her coverage toward rapists. “It’s gotten so out of control.”
Thataway, Poppy. Blame the people you offended. It goes well with your style. Shame on you for even trying that schtick on the people you know you offended with your Let’s Hug A Rapist coverage.
You should take it personally Poppy. Because so do the rest of us. As a matter of fact, Candy Crowley’s comments that pretty much amounted to “That’s what you get for joining the military” on the subject of rapes in the military was already the only tipoff I needed to convince me that CNN loves them their rapists and the victims of rape just plain always ask for it. But to cover Steubenville’s little barn animals as if their sweet, promising lives were ruined by their victim is just a final straw.
You can cover whatever you want however you want to, because I would rather have pins in my eyes than ever watch anything CNN has to say any longer.
And by the way, this was NOT the “first time” we heard from these two scumballs, so you are wrong. Richmond did a revolting interview with ABC pre-trial, where he lied like the little bastard he is and blamed his victim. The only reason that little bastard was crying was “Nobody will want me now”. Meaning, he won’t get drafted by a team. Boo Effing Hoo.
And Mays had THIS to say, pretrial, although it wasn’t on National TV.
“I got Reno. He took care of it and shit ain’t gonna happen, even if they did take it to court.”
These two boys are scumballs. The only reason they are “Sorry” is because they got caught.
So fuck you, Poppy. Your “outrage” doesn’t even come close to the ourage you invited. If you have a daughter or ever do have a daughter, you had best pray that a barn animal like Richmond or Mays, with their ‘Promising Futures,” never take her to the prom.
**Note to readers: “Reno” is the POS coach who knew about the rape but kept it quiet. He’s the Paterno of high school. Unfortunately for him, the DA isn’t done with him either.
