CNN Political Analyst Joe Lockhart loves Twitter. He Tweets as much as anyone at his “news” network and often uses his platform to lambaste President Trump and GOP lawmakers. When disgraced debate moderator Steve Scully swore that his Twitter account had been hacked last week before Tweeting a disparaging remark against President Trump, Lockhart claimed we could “take it to the bank.”
Unfortunately for Lockhart, the bank seems to be empty now that Scully has admitted he lied. One America News’ Jack Posobiec resurfaced Lockhart’s original reaction in a Tweet that hasn’t aged well at all.

There is zero chance Lockhart is not aware that Scully lied. Again, he spends more time on Twitter than a teen girl spends on TikTok. But he has been conspicuously silent, something he never does. He has an opinion about pretty much everything and has Tweeted specifically about Scully several times over the last week. The fact that he has not retracted these Tweets or acknowledged that he was wrong tells us he does not believe reports that Scully lied.
Is he in denial? Is he simply ashamed? Or is he a standard CNN talking head who is obligated to keep the narrative as anti-Trump as possible even if that means intellectual dishonesty and sticking his head in the sand? I’ll go with option three.
CNN has been pushing their anti-Trump narrative since the moment he secured the Republican nomination for president in 2016. They have invested tens of millions of dollars and tens of thousands of man-hours painting the President in as negative of a light as possible. It behooves them to bury anything that vindicates President Trump, and this falls under that category. If Lockhart hasn’t responded to the Scully news yet, he’s never going to because CNN will not allow it.

Then again, maybe he still believes Scully’s original stance and sees the sudden shift as part of the vast right-wing conspiracy.
It’s no longer applicable to categorize CNN or any of their political analysts as “journalists.” They are partisan hacks worshiping at the Democrats’ altar, and as Jack Posobiec noted in response to Joe Lockhart, the Cathedral is cracking.
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
