Dana Loesch once thought CNN was the ‘Biggest Bunch of Idiot Blockheads’. Now she works for them

CNN hired Dana Loesch as a political contributor last week; however, MediaMatters dug up some blog posts dating back several years in which Loesch calls CNNthe biggest bunch of idiot blockheads,” (June 6, 2009) “state-run media,” (March 2010) and said that the network was the home to “tinfoil hats” (Sept. 2008).

The new CNN hire also wrote that Anderson Cooper got his job “by benefit of silver spoons” (Feb. 2008).

Loesch wrote all of this on her blog “The Dana Show: The Conservative Alternative.”

CNN tells TVNewser, “CNN has always been a news organization committed to having political analysts and commentators from across the entire political spectrum. As an independent news organization we don’t take sides. Naming someone a ‘CNN Contributor’ doesn’t mean we endorse their political viewpoint. Instead, it means we have added them to our wide of range of voices which also includes invited guests and analysts on our TV networks, as well as opinion leaders on the CNN.com Opinion section.”
