On Saturday's CNN Newsroom, during an interview with former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, CNN host Ana Cabrera failed to inform viewers of some very important facts as she discussed the Colorado Democrat's successes in passing gun control in his home state in 2013. As the CNN host asked the Democratic presidential candidate about the issue of how to get at least some Republicans to go along with such measures, she failed to note that violent crime has increased substantially in Colorado every year since the passage of more gun control in 2013.
Closing out Friday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, host Brooke Baldwin closed with a lengthy, tear-filled commentary tacitly promoting the need for gun control, expressing disgust with anyone who’s not a liberal (like her), and further underlying the liberal media’s penchant for instilling fear in racial minorities and the wider public that they could be mass shooting victims.
On Wednesday's New Day show, CNN was still showing its transparent bias in favor of more restrictions on gun rights as gun control skeptic Congressman Brian Babin was pressed on his views while supporters of gun control were allow to give their prescriptions for more gun control with little challenge.
Gun-grabbing crisis vultures just can't let the latest mass shootings go to waste. “Red flag” laws are now all the rage in the Beltway as the magic pill to prevent homicidal maniacs from wreaking havoc on the nation. Even President Donald Trump has endorsed the idea of preemptively confiscating people's firearms if they are deemed a “threat.” But if you want to know how this American version of China's social credit system would work in practice, let me remind you of how Veterans Affairs recklessly red-flags “disruptive” citizens without due process, transparency or accountability in the name of “safety.”
Less than a day after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was subjected to death threats from protesters outside his home and threatening Twitter hashtags (#MassacreMoscowMitch and #MassacreMitch), two CNN shows downplayed the protesters and one also featured 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bill de Blasio expressing support for one of the hashtags.
On Monday's New Day, the three-hour CNN show treated viewers to a parade of one guest after another who pushed for more gun laws in reaction to the weekend's mass shootings. Even Republican-leaning guests like CNN contributor John Kasich and former Donald Trump advisor Anthony Scaramucci came down on the liberal side of the issue. No one noted the argument that the killers in both El Paso and Dayton cose targets that were gun-free zones, or pointed out that nearly all new gun laws proposed would have had nothing to do with the circumstances of either attack.
The past couple of weeks have brought the latest example of liberal news outfits like CNN and MSNBC suddenly taking notice of a recurring problem in immigration enforcement under President Donald Trump's administration which also happened during past administrations, including that of Barack Obama. A number of shows pounced on the story of natural-born American citizen, Francisco Galicia, who was detained by CBP and handed over to ICE in a process that took over three weeks because of suspicions that he was an illegal immigrant, in spite of him having his birth certificate on him, as a number of news reports suggested that his detention was racially motivated, with much of the coverage omitting aspects of the story which help explain why the detention happened in the first place.
While he’s received some praise during his congressional career, the liberal media’s use of sudden respect boiled with Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX) announcing that he won’t seek reelection. And, as with many cases of when GOPers either retire or pass away, the liberal media used the occasion to lament how their hated opposition just isn’t as respectable as it used to be. Throughout the day on Friday, CNN put that truism on display.
Channeling Bernie Sanders on Wednesday’s Hardball, MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host and Trump friend-turned-foe Joe Scarborough loudly pontificated about the “un-American” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) aka “Moscow Mitch” for not, in his mind, sufficiently pushing back against Russian meddling and trying to destroy the health care of millions.
Congressional reporter Carl Hulse enjoyed piling on Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell just a bit too much in Wednesday’s lead New York Times slot: “Pressure Mounts On Senate Leader To Secure Ballot – Some in G.O.P. Softening – McConnell Impedes Bills, and Seethes Over Tag of ‘Moscow Mitch.’” It’s Hulse’s favorite kind of story: Democrats gleefully putting Republicans under pressure, with Hulse cheering them on. Hulse tends to condone whatever political tactics the Democrats use against Republicans, however disreputable they might be: "Democrats pressed their advantage. And why not? The hashtag #MoscowMitchMcTraitor was trending on Twitter, and Senate Republicans of all stripes were being asked about the blockade."
On Wednesday's New Day show, during a panel discussion of the previous night's Democratic presidential debate, CNN political analyst April Ryan gushed over candidate Marianne Williamson because she brought up the issue of the U.S. government making reparations for slavery.
Over the past couple of weeks the media has told us it is beneth all standards of common decency to question the patriotism of one's political opponets, unless that opponent is a Republican. On Tuesday's MSNBC Live NBC national security correspondent Ken Dilanian declared that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has nobody but to blame for himself when people call him "Moscow Mitch" or a Russian asset.
