On Friday, CNN New Day invited on the network’s race baiting Kamau Bell to talk about the upcoming episode of his show United Shades of America (a show about how America is racist). The episode will be about how Americans stereotype Chinese Americans.



CNN continues to whine that President Trump’s attacks on the media are a threat to democracy itself. Clearly, the media, especially this network, do not take criticism well. On Thursday’s New Day, CNN political analyst and Daily Beast Editor-in-Chief John Avlon went on a hyperbolic rant that portrayed the president as a “sinister,” “Orwellian” figure.



CNN is pulling out all the stops to defend ObamaCare from Republicans meddling. On Wednesday’s New Day, an ObamaCare supporter was brought on to denounce the GOP plan. Take a look at some of the questions reporter Clarissa Ward (filling in for co-host Alisyn Camerota) asked...



CNN has become a self-serving propaganda mill for journalists the past few months, reaching a new level of shamelessness. Wednesday’s New Day ran the headline, “TRUMP WHITE HOUSE INTENSIFIES WAR WITH MEDIA,” with reporter Clarissa Ward (filling in for co-host Alisyn Camerota) worrying that by labeling the media as fake and such, that the White House is putting the lives of journalists in danger...



During MSNBC's 9 a.m. ET hour on Monday, analyst Steven Brill wanted to make sure everybody understood that ObamaCare is a “conservative” policy: "Let me just remind everyone, the reason that they're in so much trouble is that ObamaCare was a more conservative version of the Republicans' health care proposals...it was so conservative." He added: "The only reason they opposed ObamaCare was that it had the president's name on it. It was the proposal that Richard Nixon wanted.”
 



On Monday’s New Day, co-host Chris Cuomo confidently proclaimed that the Trump administration is lying about the GOP health care bill: “It comes as the Trump administration vows there won't be any cuts to Medicaid. That's simply not true. So we'll take you through the spin and the facts.



On Friday’s Morning Joe, MSNBC panelist Donny Deutsch pushed the typical liberal “tax cuts for the rich” narrative as he slammed the Republican health care reform bill: "The other side of the aisle will call this as a redistribution of wealth. Obviously, parties are given to hyperbole, but the reality according to the Center [for] Tax Policy is that 90 percent of the benefits in this plan go to families making $700,000 a year..."



CNN hosts once again trotted out Jeffrey Toobin, their left-wing political commentator dressed up as a legal analyst, to trash Republicans. Toobin on Thursday expressed his frustration that the media is being distracted by Trump’s tweets when they could be talking about the horrors of the GOP health bill.



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.



CNN New Day was up to their usual antics Wednesday morning as they brought on two leftists to discuss the GOP’s “monstrosity” of a health care bill. Ezra Klein, Editor-in-Chief of the far-left publication Vox, and Andy Slavitt, former Acting Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services under President Obama, were chosen to analyze the GOP’s potential bill.
 



On the day of the much anticipated Georgia congressional special election, CNN New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota teed up Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff with grand questions about how important his potential victory would be: 



When Muslim teenager Nabra Hassanen, 17, was murdered Sunday, the media propagandized that it was a hate crime. They had no evidence to do so but they did so anyway. When the Fairfax County police dispelled the myth, they pushed harder.

 



Over the past few weeks, the Democrats/media have been pushing the narrative that evil Senate Republicans are hiding their non-existent health care bill from the public. CNN New Day host Chris Cuomo went as far as to say...



In the aftermath of the shooting targeting Republican congressmen in Alexandria, VA, the media has called for both sides to cool down their rhetoric. As if the vitriol and hate were equal on both sides. The truth is it isn’t. Huffington Post writer Jesse Benn is case and point. The Huffington Post has long been a place for the fringe left to spew their venom.
 



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 Tuesday morning, CNN Senior Political Commentator David Axelrod wanted to make sure people knew that President Obama too was “under siege” from the media and that they “felt it.” He spun, "“But there were times when we were completely under siege and you felt it.” 



Monday morning, CNN Senior Political Analyst Ron Brownstein suggested that when it came to withholding information in an open Senate hearing, there is no difference between private tobacco executives and the heads of the country’s intelligence agencies...



On Friday's CNN New Day, co-host Chris Cuomo attacked Republicans for being justifiably disturbed by James Comey's revelation on Thursday that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch attempted to interfere in the FBI investigation into Hillary's Clinton's e-mails during the 2016 campaign: "..they say it is really about President Obama's attorney general Loretta Lynch and why she tried to, in their terms, obstruct that investigation. That was their big take away from yesterday and that tells you everything about the political tribalism at play right now."



CNN senior legal analyst Jeffery Toobin once again proclaimed that Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice on CNN's New Day Friday morning. He stated that he thought “it’s even clearer that this is a case of obstruction of justice,” after the Comey testimony.



After the much hyped James Comey Senate hearing Thursday, CNN’s John King took a shot at Republicans later that afternoon. He argued that they wanted to “dramatically lower the standard for being President of the United States.”
