In what has become routine business at CNN, New Day played and then praised a Jimmy Kimmel Live skit mocking Republicans. The skit was a trailer spin-off of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets only instead of Harry Potter, it was Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). The idea being that the GOP’s Senate bill is a secret that will wreak havoc on America.
Washington Post media blogger Erik Wemple wrote a profile of CNN New Day anchor Alisyn Camerota that was posted Thursday, but the first eye-catching thing is she has a new novel coming this summer about a morning cable-news anchor working for a CNN-like network with the letters FAIR! CNN boss Jeff Zucker proclaimed without giggling that other networks have "partisans," while CNN only has "personalities."
BREAKING NEWS: GOP members of the Senate Intelligence Committee are sexist. That according to CNN New Day at least. On Wednesday morning, CNN Senior Legal Analyst Jeffery Toobin confidently proclaimed that Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) was interrupted during Tuesday’s hearing not because she was out of control, but because Republicans are sexist.
On Wednesday morning, CNN New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota interviewed former senior advisor to President Obama Valerie Jarrett.
Camerota’s first question was a tough one: “So what is it like for you and President Obama to watch the Trump administration unfold?”
As two Republican officeholders and one Democrat appeared as guests in separate segments on Friday's New Day, CNN hosts repeatedly pressed the two Republicans from the left about the Paris Accord, but the Democrat was simply asked what his views were without challenge. Both Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota were preoccupied with whether President Donald Trump believes global warming is a "hoax," with Camerota so fixated that she spent most of one interview pressing on that same question over and over again. Camerota's Republican guest eventually called out some of her reasoning as being "silly."
On Thursday's New Day, CNN's Alisyn Camerota was seen pressing Republican Senator Mike Lee from the left on President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on global warming. But, later in the program during an interview with Democratic Senator Ed Markey, the same Camerota merely asked for his reaction and then did not challenge his left-wing response.
Thursday morning, CNN’s New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota had to be reminded by Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) that then-FBI Director James Comey testified on May 3 that he had received no pressure to end any FBI investigation...
On Thursday morning, CNN's New Day was at it again, pushing Democratic talking points. Co-host Alisyn Camerota and CNN reporter Suzanne Malveaux were perplexed that House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) would subpoena for information regarding the unmasking of Americans’ names, such as Michael Flynn’s, in intelligence reports.
As Minnesota Democratic Senator Al Franken appeared as a guest on Wednesday's New Day to plug his book, Al Franken, Giant of the Senate, CNN co-host Alisyn Camerota and other CNN staff off screen were inspired to laugh out loud at the liberal Senator joking about hating Republican Senator Ted Cruz. After the two discussed that Franken's staff are under orders to talk the retired comedian out of making jokes at inappropriate times, Camerota began reading from his book about his negative views of the Texas Republican.
Even though the media has been pushing hard the Russia-Trump collusion narrative for over six months now, CNN is still denying that the media has any agenda on the matter. Despite the investigation turning up no evidence, CNN has been particularly obnoxious in ignoring this fact. On New Day Tuesday morning, host Alisyn Camerota scoffed after former White House Chief of Staff under Bush Senior, John Sununu, accused her network of reporting their own “version of events” that assumed collusion, without showing any evidence that actually transpired.
On Friday's New Day on CNN, during a discussion in which panel members fretted over Republican reaction to GOP Rep.-elect Greg Gianforte violently attacking a reporter, The Atlantic's David Frum managed to inject race into the discussion as he theorized about what Rush Limbaugh would have done if Gianforte were a black Democrat. Frum: "Had the congressman been a black Democrat, imagine what Rush Limbaugh would have said. Rush Limbaugh called the attack 'studly' and 'manly.' Imagine -- it would have -- you would have had an explosion of racial provocation."
On Thursday morning, CNN’s New Day linked President Trump’s frequent criticism of the liberal media to Montana Congressional candidate Greg Gianforte’s violent incident with a reporter Wednesday evening. Appearing on the morning show, The Washington Post’s Karoun Demirjian whined: “You’ve got this kind of culture of, you know, reporters are the enemy going on and it depends. You see a lot of Democrats pointing the finger at the President right now. Saying you created, you helped create, at least, this culture where people..."
