GOP Congressional Candidate Bob Corlew Blasts CNN for ‘Pushing Out Stories With Headlines That Fawn Over North Korea’

Former Tennessee Chancery Court Judge Bob Corlew, a candidate for the Republican nomination in the 6th Congressional District, released a statement today “regarding the recent controversy of the flattery of North Korea’s Kim Yo-jong, the sister of North Korea’s brutal totalitarian leader Kim Jong Un, by CNN and other mainstream media outlets.”

“Instead of highlighting our American athletes that are competing in the Olympics, CNN and other mainstream media outlets are pushing out stories with headlines that fawn over North Korea and their totalitarian regime,” Corlew said in the statement.

The statement continued:

“I have been to the Indo-Pacific region many times and have heard first-hand accounts about the looming threat that hangs over South Korea and Japan every day. This effort by major news networks to glorify this violent and repressive regime is completely unacceptable. This should be a time of national unity as we cheer on our fellow Americans who are representing our country in the Olympic games.”

Bob Corlew has been to the Indo-Pacific region numerous times in his role as International President of Lions Club International, the world’s largest service club organization serving in over 200 countries. Corlew served as International President in 2016 and 2017.

Corlew, a resident of Mt. Juliet, is one of three candidates vying for the Republican nomination in the 6th Congressional District to replace Rep. Diane Black (R-TN-06), who is not seeking re-election to Congress but is instead seeking the Republican nomination for governor.

Former Tennessee Agriculture Commissioner John Rose and State Rep. Judd Matheny (R-Tullahoma) are also in the race for the Republican nomination in the 6th Congressional District.

The primary will be held in August.

    Recent Wilson County property purchaser and major Rutherford County property owner and longtime resident, former Rutherford County Chancellor Robert Corlew blasts an independent media outlet for their private, albeit unpatriotic, reporting of our US Athletic team while when responsible, as the Court, in decisions to permit the infiltration of idealogical systems into Rutherford County has placed the citizens of Tennessee and this nation in peril. Who are you trying kid Tennessee Star? This candidate is toxic.
