First CNN Messes Up on the Obama Ruling, Now They Think Whitney Houston is a German Drag Queen

You have to wonder if CNN is slipping under the pressure of having the worst ratings of the last 20 years.  We saw that the network got it wrong on the ruling for Obamacare.  That was bad enough.  Now, during a conversation about Whitney Houston, one of the producers actually put up a video of a drag queen who was impersonating Houston.  The last time we checked, Whitney Houston didn’t have that little thing between her legs that would make her a man, so maybe they have to work with their fact checkers.

We still love CNN, especially since they try to keep it objective.  But they’ve got to do a better job of making sure they stay on point; those 22-year old interns aren’t quite doing the job, and we’re shocked that such a prestigious network would make such a blatant error.  There was also interesting situation a couple of years ago where the network played a rap song that used the n-word.  Well, at least they apologized for the incident, which is more than we can say for Fox News.  Check it on YourBlackWorld.net:

You might think that during a serious interview about the fabulous life of Whitney Houston, you would know that she is not a 5’9″ German guy, but apparently CNN does not.  During an interview with LL Cool J about the life of Whitney Houston, Piers Morgan aired generic footage that they thought was Houston, but was not.

Instead, the footage featured a drag queen by the name of Ikenna Beney Amaechi.  Amaechi makes his living imitating Whitney Houston, but never thought he’d be on CNN during a serious conversation about Houston’s life.

    This wasn’t an accident at all. They knew exactly what they were doing in another traditional white person attempt at belittling and mocking the value of a black person’s life. I can’t expect more from white people. They have no souls.

    Have you noticed they are leaning more to the right and are more anti President Obama. Subtle things, but pay attention,

    Dead giveaway- S(he)’s not a beautiful brown color.

    The profile ( not to insult ReRe) looks more like Rihanna and nothing like Whitney.
    But again she’s not a pretty shade of BROWN.

    No mistake, just White Coonery at its lowest common denominator. Keep up the good work CNN, sometimes you forget the World is watching you.

      dey de devil! The Hon. Elijah Mohammed Proved from Their own “Holy” Bible that “Satan comes but to kill, steal and destroy”, this is what they have been doing through out history, killing. stealling and destroying;
      Character, Nations, Philosophies, Peoples, Cultures, Natural Resources, eventually (if we let them) this entire planet!

    Cant be more explicit than that.The Honorable Elijah Mohammed Shared tht fact years ago by proving from the Holy Bible that Satan only comes to Kill, Steal and
    Destroy and thats exactly what these people jhave done throughout history.

    You must be kidding, CNN, prestegious?. That yellow journalistic garbage come no where to be credible, whay says prestegious.Maybe becaus their is so many gay men working at CNN, they think every body is gay or a drag queen.The closet at CNN door has swang wide open, there is nobody left in it.Now if only those at NBC, would come out they we could say the media is no longer bias.
    But Whitney a drag queen, I think not, maybe she return as one but nobody knows but CNN, they have a special connection with the other side.

        ANA, you wrote
        >>Ed please, you must learn to spell or use your spell check <<

        There should be a comma after "Ed, as his name is not "Ed Please". Additionally, you failed to put a period at the end of your sentence. While Ed is finding his spell-check, perhaps you should find a grammar-check. Afterwards, make better use of the stones you throw and toss them into a pond to cleanse them of all the judgment and self-righteousness. GEESH! Just stick to the subject matter and stop trying to prove that you’re smarter than Ed. IT DIDN’T WORK and nobody cares!

      A little work on grammar and punctuation would not hurt, either.

    I would classfied all White People like who ever said that about Whitney Houston, i don’t watch CNN, because the Media will say anything that might increase their Rating.
    I like watching PBS, but what ever they say i will research to make sure they are telling the truth, and they are lying, i call them out.

    We know Whitney Houston is NOT a German Drag Queen and it would be a waste of time to debate that even with CNN who RATING is in the TANK.

    You should never believe what you hear or see on the TV. CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX. they all have the same information, but spin it differently. CNN has sold their soul.

    May I suggest ABC CBS and Fox, compare and then decide where the truth lies. I’ve found CNN and NBC, MSNBC are very bad at checking facts and are prone to sensationalism, they realize some people will believe just about anything if it’s on the 6 O’clock news. They pay people to keep it stirred up, ask Al what his job is on MSNBC.

    There is no way that this was an ERROR on CNN’s behalf. How can you say it was an error, when the person who put the clip up, had to have known where he got it. This was not one of Whitney’s concert’s so when the person retrieved the clip and it said where it was from, why did they still obtain the clip and air it. Just shameless all around.


    Get out of here with your promotion of FOX (AKA KKKNEWS)
    That right winged bises station does not tell it like it is. It tell is like it’s WHITE. And Al Sharpton is no where near BIASED. Just because he goes after any and everybody who tries to hurt the middle class does not mean he does not report facts. He is a man of God who never attacks anyone in a mean spirited way. And if he ever gets something wrong, he always apologizes for it, like a man. Unlock those bigots and closet racists over at FOX. In the words of the Reverend Al Sharpton

    NICE TRY-But We Gotcha.
