CNN continued to stoke fear of President-Elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Scott Pruitt to lead the Environmental Protection Agency on The Lead Thursday.  “’At the risk of being dramatic. Scott Pruitt is an extension threat to the planet.’ That's quite a charge,” host Jake Tapper said, as he read a tweet from Dan Pfeiffer, a former adviser to President Barack Obama. He was speaking to reporter Rene Marsh who brushed way Republican grievances with the agency before giving a report smearing Pruitt.

On Thursday's CNN Newsroom, Carol Costello boosted liberal criticism of President-Elect Donald Trump picking several retired generals to his Cabinet.

The anchor later hyped that "some...say a militarized view of America got us into...the Iraq War. It created problems at Abu Ghraib. It created the mess that is now Guantanamo Bay. So, do they have a point?"

In their two-hour-long documentary, The Legacy of Barack Obama, Wednesday, CNN allowed former Obama adviser Fareed Zakaria to set his sights on Congressional Republicans as he claimed their opposition was fueled by a deep-seated racism. “That fierce, unrelenting opposition, would haunt the next eight years and what began as whispers is now discussed openly,” he pontificated as ominous music played, “Did race play a role in the brick wall of Republican resistance to Barack Obama?”

On Tuesday afternoon, CNN Newsroom and The Situation Room both ran reports highlighting liberal groups that went public with a letter attacking National Security Advisor-designate, retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn for having "inflammatory views" and making "Islamophobic remarks," as they called on President-elect Donald Trump not to follow through on appointing him to work in his administration.

The letter notably uses as one of its sources a CNN.com article and includes some of the very distortions perpetrated by CNN that NewsBusters has been hitting the news network over for the past few weeks, as various CNN shows have repeatedly played edited clips from two of Flynn's speeches that omitted references to "radical Islam," making it appear Flynn was attacking all Muslims as a "cancer."

In an exclusive phone interview with Donald Trump on Wednesday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt grilled the President-elect on his use of Twitter, fretting: “I have not seen you backing off fights on Twitter. In the time since you were elected, you’ve targeted the cast of Hamilton, The New York Times, China, Boeing, the media, and SNL.
