On Monday’s edition of New Day, co-host John Berman had on former CIA director under George W. Bush, retired General Michael Hayden to discuss Hayden’s controversial tweet comparing the Trump administration’s zero tolerance policy towards illegal immigration to the Nazi concentration camp of Auschwitz. In a rare yet commendable “man bites dog” act of journalism, Berman pressed back against this ludicrous claim after Hayden doubled down.
On Friday’s edition of New Day co-host John Berman had Congressman Matt Gaetz (R) of Florida on to ask him about his thoughts on the Inspector General’s Report regarding the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton e-mail probe.

On Wednesday’s edition of New Day, host Alisyn Camerota invited CNN Senior Media Correspondent Brian Stelter and CNN Media Analyst Bill Carter to discuss examples of media bias and hypocrisy.

On Monday’s edition of New Day, co-host Alisyn Camerota had Tony Schwartz, co-author of president Trump’s The Art of the Deal, on as a guest to discuss the upcoming summit between president Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

On Thursday’s edition of CNN’s New Day, co-hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota “reported” on an interview that Anderson Cooper conducted the night before with former Fox News contributor, Lt.

The catastrophic fallout from Samantha Bee’s “C” word incident received surprisingly fair and reasonable coverage yesterday from CNN’s New Day. Sadly, that lasted just twenty-four hours, when this morning on New Day, hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman had on comedians Maysoon Zayid and Alise Morales to discuss Bee’s vile comments.
