One of the weirdest moments in CNN’s debate on Tuesday came when one of the debate moderators completely disregarded Bernie Sanders’s denial of making a sexist remark. It was such a botched moment that even the liberal Mika Brzezinski mocked CNN as “bizarre.” The moment occurred when moderator Abby Phillip assumed Sanders guilty of telling Elizabeth Warren a woman couldn’t be elected President.
CNN’s chief legal analyst admitted Friday morning that it was journalists' jobs to dismantle Republican talking points on impeachment. Minutes before the House voted to approve the impeachment articles against President Trump, CNN’s liberal panel broke in to bash Republicans for “lying” about Ukraine.
CNN journalists are still expressing remorse over how they covered the 2016 election, particularly as it relates to Clinton scandals. Despite giving an overwhelming amount of negative coverage to Trump, CNN’s chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin complained on Monday's New Day, they shouldn’t have given any attention to the Clinton private email server, calling it a “big nothing” that cost Clinton the election.
Dissent is, once again, the highest form of patriotism or at least it is according to CNN Inside Politics host John King. During his Tuesday show in discussing the war of words between President Trump and "The Squad," King compared their grievances against Trump and the country to the Boston Revolutionaries of 1773.
A war of words took to new heights on Monday between President Trump and four freshmen House Democrats when the President responded to attacks directed at him from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ilhan Omar (MN), Ayanna Pressley (MA), and Rashida Tlaib (MI). On CNN’s The Situation Room, Wolf Blitzer could hardly wait to pounce on the race card and made CNN part of the story after the women held a press conference.
On the eve of the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings, leaders of Allied nations came together to commemorate the brave men who sacrificed their lives in order to preserve freedom in the Western world and to liberate Europe from the totalitarian Nazi regime. Leaders of all nations reminded one another of the need to come together and do their part to prevent another world war from taking place. But the journalists at CNN New Day focused on reminding Donald Trump of this message.
A CNN New Day panel painted Kamala Harris as the loser in last night's CNN town halls. Three CNN journalists criticized her for not offering "something bold," instead using the "let's have a conversation about that" dodge. Alisyn Camerota got in a zinger at the end, suggesting that if Harris wanted to have a conversation, a town hall just might have been the right place to do it. Ouch!
Thursday afternoon, a CNN panel rehashed the media’s already tired complaint that female candidates face a sexist standard that their male opponents, do not: Their “likability” with the media. Inside Politics host John King and his guests praised a Marie Claire interview where several of these Democrat women running in 2020 complained about the sexist questions they get asked, as they touted Hillary Clinton for paving the way for these women.
During Tuesday’s edition of At This Hour With Kate Bolduan, the eponymous host and her panel reacted to the impending departure of United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who announced that she would step down from her post at the end of this year. While Haley stressed that she has decided to step down out of respect for term limits, citing her six-year tenure as Governor of South Carolina and her two years as US Ambassador to the UN, the CNN panel didn’t buy that explanation as the primary reason for her departure.
Don Lemon was so aghast about President Trump’s comments on Antifa being bolstered if Democrats sweep the Midterms this Fall, that he devoted three separate segments on his two hour show Tuesday night to it.
CNN on Tuesday freaked out over the Trump White House hiring Joseph diGenova, repeatedly dismissing the lawyer as a “conspiracy theorist.” In contrast, CNN in 2013 hired Van Jones as a host, a man who resigned from the Obama White House amidst connections to the 9/11 truther movement.
Towards the end of Thursday morning’s edition of CNN’s Inside Politics, the panel criticized President Trump's routine of watching Fox News in the morning and argued that he lives in a "parallel universe." The panel had discussed the fact that President Trump used the phrase “bombshell” to describe the latest batch of text messages between anti-Trump FBI employees Peter Stzrok and Lisa Page, after the morning news program Fox & Friends used the same term.
