As part of the media’s hysteria-filled reactions to the disturbing event out of Montana Wednesday night in which Republican congressional candidate Steve Gianforte allegedly body slammed The Guardian’s Ben Jacobs, CNN senior media reporter Dylan Byers blamed it on “anti-media rhetoric” and “civility” from conservatives.

Jeffrey Toobin pretty much let the cat out of the bag about the real desired purpose (by the Democrats and the mainstream media) of the investigation by the new Special Counsel Robert Mueller in the May 19 New Yorker. He basically concedes that there is a good possibility that no criminal evidence of collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and the Russians will be found. What he reveals, and it is no big surprise to anyone who follows politics, is that the information collected during the course of this investigation could be politically damaging to President Trump if it is released.

On Thursday's The Lead, during a discussion of President Donald Trump's just concluded press conference, both host Jake Tapper and Jeffrey Toobin oddly made the same mistake in wrongly claiming that President Trump had stated that he could "only" speak for himself about whether his campaign colluded with Russia. In fact, what the President actually stated was that he could "always" speak for himself as he also claimed that his campaign "certainly" did not collude. Oddly enough, even though CNN replayed the relevant Trump soundbite during the discussion, neither Tapper nor Toobin even noticed they were misquoting him.

A week to the day after President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, a memo he purportedly written claiming Trump asked him to end the Mike Flynn investigation was leaked to The New York Times. In the aftermath of the first story, CNN Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin flew off the handle and compared it Watergate. A week later, Toobin was again jumping to conclusions and ignoring the sketchy facts. “Three words: Obstruction of justice,” he exclaimed to Wolf Blitzer on The Situation Room

CNN claims it’s right down the middle, somewhere between the left-wing MSNBC and the more conservative-friendly Fox News Channel. But an MRC study of an entire day of CNN’s coverage shows the network spent almost all of its time covering the Trump presidency, with a heavily skewed roster of anti-Trump guests and on-air commentators.

On Monday’s New Day, CNN guest and liberal George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley calmly dismantled the media’s hysteria over President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey, toeing the line between concern for what happened and suggesting the “rhetorical spin” be toned down.

In the immediate aftermath of the firing of FBI Director James Comey, CNN was a hub of outrageous hyperbole and rancor. Five days after the event, and CNN is still that hub. On Global Public Square, Fareed Zakaria claimed Trump was a “danger to American democracy.” Meanwhile, on Reliable Sources, analyst Carl Bernstein claimed the firing was worse than Watergate. “I think this is a potentially more dangerous situation than Watergate and we are at a very dangerous moment,” he told CNN’s Brian Stelter and Jeffrey Toobin.

Primetime cable hosts, reporters and contributors from MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow to CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin unleashed hell on Donald Trump after news broke of FBI Director James Comey’s firing. All night on Tuesday, journalists obsessively compared Trump’s move to Richard Nixon’s “Saturday night massacre” of special prosecutor Archibald Cox during the Watergate scandal.

Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan wasn’t hired as a reader’s advocate, to check the newspaper for accuracy and fairness. Instead, she often serves as a cheerleader for aggressive liberal advocacyu, especially against President Trump. So on Thursday, her column hailed partisan CNN commentator Jeffrey Toobin for his “fiery analysis” of the Comey firing.

NewsBusters even drew a nod, if only to note that perhaps Toobin was great because conservatives “tut-tutted” his tirade.

Appearing on CNN Wednesday afternoon to participate in the network-wide meltdown over James Comey’s ouster as FBI Director, longtime liberal journalists and CNN political analyst Carl Bernstein invoked Watergate but went further, fretting that “this is terribly dangerous moment in American history.”

All the media could talk about Tuesday night was how President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. As unfounded speculation about Trump’s assumed guilt swirled, CNN political commentator David Gregory was in a visible rage over the whole ordeal. At the end of the eight o’clock hour, he declared that the firing was a display Trump’s “disdain” for the rule of law. But what was on full display was Gregory’s disdain for the Trump administration

Washington, DC was rocked Tuesday evening when news broke that President Donald Trump had fired FBI Director James Comey. According to a memorandum from Deputy Attorney General Rob Rosenstein, Comey was recommended to be fired for going over the head of Attorney General Loretta Lynch on July 5, 2016, and holding a press conference about Hillary Clinton’s e-mail investigation. But according to CNN’s Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, the FBI director was fired because he was hot on Trump’s trail.
