CNN: Please ignore the climate change deniers we pay to appear on CNN to engage in climate change denial

Not the Onion:

CNN posted a video on Monday evening urging people not to listen to climate change deniers, and instead pay attention to experts, like the channel’s meteorologists.

The video begins with brief clips of four prominent Republicans — President Donald Trump, Rick Santorum, Tom DeLay, and Kimberly Guilfoyle — each casting doubt upon climate change during TV appearances. It then transitions to a debunking of myths frequently pushed by people like them.

There’s just one little problem:

Two of the four clips CNN is urging people to ignore — the comments from Santorum, who is a paid CNN commentator, and DeLay — are from interviews on CNN.

According to current free speech theories being propounded by various reactionary centrists who oppose “political correctness,” if CNN doesn’t pay Rick Santorum to appear on CNN in order to spout lies about the financial incentives of people who refuse to engage in climate change denialism, then CNN is engaging in censorship.
