Editor’s Pick: CNSNews on CNN’s Softballs to Offensive Omar

December 7th, 2021 10:15 AM

On Monday, CNSNews Morning Managing Editor Susan Jones reported on a softball Sunday interview CNN anchor Jake Tapper conducted with controversial far-left Congresswoman Ilhan Omar in which he gave the Democrat “a platform to condemn the ‘hateful, bigoted comments’ made about her by Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert,” but “never mentioned the ‘hateful, bigoted comments’ for which Omar was forced to apologize in February 2019.”
