While the Comey hearing into Russia was and remains a big story, CNN’s John King admitted Thursday afternoon that the media will not give much (if any) attention to Jim Comey stating that he was disturbed by then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch telling him in the midst of the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal that he should refer to it as “a matter,” not “an investigation.”
During a midday segment on Middle Eastern relations and terrorism, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer interviewed former ambassador to the U.N., Iraq, and Afghanistan Zalmay Khalilzad. Blitzer and CNN ostensibly were interested in having Ambassador Khalilzad as a guest on the program for his expert analysis and insight. However, instead of discussing policy, Blitzer instead deliberately derailed Khalilzad’s academic breakdown of the issues in favor of pushing him to criticize President Trump.
Hillary Clinton came out of the woods to deliver another vicious anti-Trump speech Friday afternoon and the media couldn’t get enough of it. Clinton was delivering the commencement address at her alma mater Wellesley College, and both MSNBC and CNN took precious time out from their endless Russia conspiracy coverage to gush over the failed presidential candidate’s “fiery” “takedown” of our president
During Tuesday’s Situation Room, CNN host Wolf Blitzer repeatedly nudged guests to accept the notion of impeaching President Donald Trump following a New York Times piece claiming that Trump told then-FBI Director James Comey in February to end the Mike Flynn probe.
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.
It only took four "precise" words to utterly deflate Wolf Blitzer on the May 3 Situation Room on CNN. Those four deflationary words came courtesy of Senator Dianne Feinstein. A transcript is below but it is absolutely necessary to watch the video to see just how instantly poor Wolf's entire attitude changed. One moment he was assertively asking a question in a bold tone and the next moment his balloon burst leaving him weakly sputtering in obvious frustration.
On Friday afternoon, a slew of CNN personalities could barely contain their approval with the German journalists who questioned President Trump, swooning how they exclusively stuck to the wiretapping claims and should be given “kudos” for their questions from the left.
Following a joint statement on Thursday from Senate Intelligence Committee leaders refuting President Trump’s claim about being wiretapped by his predecessor, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and David Chalian could barely contain their glee, heralding the “clear rebuke” of the “third grader” in Trump who, they claim, could put the issue to rest if he apologized to Barack Obama.
On CNN's New Day Tuesday, co-host Chris Cuomo recapped his interview on the show yesterday with Iowa Representative Steve King as the Republican congressman "just trying to provoke conversation." This comes in the midst of King facing backlash over a tweet, agreeing with far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders.
Prior to the Friday afternoon White House press briefing, CNN’s Wolf attempted to tamp down on the Trump administration’s positive vibes regarding the February jobs report, wondering if President Donald Trump is really able to “claim credit” for such a strong month.
On Sunday’s series premiere of ABC’s Time After Time, Dr. John Stevenson aka Jack the Ripper (Josh Bowman) was finally caught in 2017 by friend H.G. Wells (Freddie Stroma) after stealing Wells’s time machine from 1893. When they met at a New York City bar, however, Stevenson boasted about the accessibility of guns in 2017 and how he’s “an amateur” compared to the 21st century’s violent criminals.
Amidst the media’s full-court press on Thursday to seize the scalp of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a panel on CNN’s Wolf gloated about Sessions’s predicament, misled viewers on the possibility Sessions committed perjury, and argued he’s delegitimized the Department of Justice (DOJ).
