Doublethink has its limits. Every now and then there’s a breaking point where people realize that they are being asked to believe the exact opposite of what they were previously told was unassailable truth. This CNN story may be one of those inflection points.

CNN aired a 3 minute segment earlier this week that can only be described as jaw-dropping. Watch it for yourself. Go on, watch it.
[…] It’s almost too unbelievable to take in what you’re watching. CNN is giving air time to an Al Qaeda spokesman to talk about how they’ve changed their name so it’s now perfectly good and logical for the West to be supporting them in Syria now.
Oops, did I say “Al Qaeda spokesman?” Of course I meant a “Jabhat al Nusra spokesman.” But I guess that’s “Jabhat Fatah al-Sham” now. Emphasis on “sham.”
No, none of this will be particularly surprising to my regular readers. Remember, after all, that it was only two months ago that the U.S. requested that Russia stop bombing Al Qaeda in Syria. (“Is the war on terror over?” asked Brandon Turbeville at the time. “Can we have our rights back?”)
