In an interview with former presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson, CNN's New Day co-host Chris Cuomo repeatedly tried get the prominent Donald Trump supporter to backtrack on his RNC speech in which he linked Hillary Clinton to known radical Saul Alinsky.

It’s hard to tell if CBS is in or out when it comes to the legalization of marijuana. Tuesday's segment on CBS This Morning painted a pretty rosy picture of the California initiative to legalize recreational pot. Opinions of the ethics of pot legalization aside, the piece only provided one example of negative criticism of the initiative if passed, and quickly glanced over that in order to repeatedly bring up the pros of the measure.
Less than a week after the Dallas terrorist attack, and the liberal media has once again focused on providing attention to Black Lives Matter (BLM) protestors across the nation.

In a decision that has rocked the political landscape, FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday announced that the FBI will not recommend prosecuting Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

In a display of awe and admiration, the cast of CBS This Morning were stunned to learn of the “generosity and trust” of Canadian families who currently host Syrian refugees in Toronto.

Sometime people can’t hold in a good laugh, but the hosts of CBS This Morning had a real difficult time holding in their giggling as they interviewed the star of the new show Braindead, Tony Shalhoub, who plays a Republican senator who has alien insects eating away at his brain, causing the lifelong politician to become a hardcore conservative. During the segment, the hosts of the show couldn't help themselves as they alluded the fact they felt that real life Republicans suffer from the same affliction as the ones on the show.
The Pope is at it again, this time issuing an apology to the LGBT community over the Catholic Church’s messaging over the nature of homosexuality and other LGBT related issues. During the segment discussing the Pope’s statement on CBS This Morning, co-hosts Gayle King, Norah O’Donnell, and Charlie Rose fawned and praised the Pope’s bending to the liberal tradition of raising up Christian figures who embrace the LGBT community, while attacking Christians who refuse to allow secular worldviews to bend their faith.
During an interview with the cast of CBS This Morning, Bernie Sanders got a fiery reaction from the cast as they pestered him for not dropping out and endorsing presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

In typical liberal fashion, the hosts of CBS This Morning provided a friendly forum to the Democratic National Committee Chair and and Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, while covering the House Democrats and their protest over gun control legislation. In a fashion that made it appear as if the hosts supported the Democrats’ childish behavior, co-host Gayle King took on a more conversational and supportive tone with the Congresswoman, instead of doing her due diligence as a journalist.
While reporting on Taylor Swift’s open letter to Congress regarding a drastic reform of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, CBS This Morning focused the story primarily on how Swift, along with many other high-profile entertainers such as Paul McCartney and Trent Reznor, felt YouTube was exploiting the artists' music by not taking a more proactive role in targeting and removing videos and other content that play licensed music without explicit permission from the artist or their record company.
Reports on ABC's World News Tonight on Monday and Good Morning America on Tuesday both downplayed the controversy, with correspondent Linzie Janis briefly remarking: "When asked his name, the gunman responds, 'My name is I pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi of the Islamic State.' Authorities initially redacting that pledge, but later releasing it caving into criticism." There was no mention of Republicans calling out the administration nor any use of the word "controversy."
In an already polarized political climate leading up to the convention season for the Democrats and Republicans, CBS This Morning threw the spotlight on a left wing activist group known as Color of Change.
