Over the weekend, CNN allowed three different Georgia Democratic officials to appear as guests on air to attack the newly passed heartbeat bill that Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp plans to sign into law, outlawing abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected. Arguments in favor of the ban were totally absent as no right-leaning guests were included to argue their point of view.
On Saturday's CNN Newsroom with Ana Cabrera, CNN's Nia-Malika Henderson claimed that the reason freshman New York Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is so often attacked by conservatives is because she is "incredibly charismatic," "a young Latina," and "incredibly eloquent." The CNN reporter named everything except the actual reason -- her self-identified "socialist" views were so popular with her party's base that she defeated an entrenched Democratic incumbent.
On Thursday, CNN broke an incredibly startling claim by Michael Avenatti, the former lawyer of adult film star Stormy Daniels, who claimed to possess a tape of R&B singer R. Kelly engaging in sexual acts with an underage girl. Perhaps equally surprisingly CNN host Ana Cabrera claimed some at her network had watched the tape, though she offered no explanation as to how the network had access to it. Cabrera also did mention the LA Times's reporting from earlier that day that Avenatti would be relinquishing control of his law firm after being accused of illegally concealing millions of dollars.
Over the weekend, calls mounted for Virginia Governor Ralph Northam to resign over racist photos that were found in his medical school yearbook. Yet the Democrat’s controversial comments supporting a radical abortion law proposed by his party was swept under the rug by the media. CNN even went out of its way to silence any conservative guests who tried to bring up that story on their network this weekend.
On Sunday evening, CNN Newsroom host Ana Cabrera provided a sympathetic forum to transgender activist and former Navy SEAL Kristin Beck to complain about a new policy by the Trump administration that puts restrictions on the recruitment of transgenders by the military for the future.
CNN Newsroom presented a predictable reaction to President Trump’s Saturday afternoon remarks that offered a compromise to Democrats on immigration and government shutdown, blasting Trump’s speech as “inflammatory” filled with “misinformation and scare-mongering tactics” trying to still make “Trump’s little racist wall” happen.
On Friday, the New York Times published an article revealing that the FBI opened a probe in 2017 to investigate whether President Donald Trump was acting as a Russian agent. CNN hosts spent more than three hours over the weekend brandishing the report as “devastating” news for Trump, but gave only a minuscule portion of the coverage included any reference to the disclosure by the Times that “no evidence has emerged publicly” which implicated the President.
On Saturday's CNN Newsroom, host Ana Cabrera was joined by CNN's Brian Stelter to bemoan the fact that President Donald Trump reacted to criticism from conservatives by holding firm on border wall funding and rejecting a plan to delay a shutdown of the government. Stelter complained the conservative media's "entertainment wing, that's the Sean Hannitys of the world....have an enormous amount of influence."
Appearing on Saturday's CNN Newsroom and again on New Day Sunday to discuss the international summit on global warming, CNN correspondent Nick Paton Walsh repeatedly fearmongered about the possibility of "catastrophe" in a decade if "drastic" changes are not taken to combat global warming.
On Sunday evening, CNN Newsroom ran a full report in which correspondent Drew Griffin bemoaned EPA acting head Andrew Wheeler's efforts to cut regulations, as well his past ties to the coal industry and his work for Republican Senator James Inhofe, whom Griffin derided as a "climate change denier."
On Sunday evening's CNN Newsroom, during a segment with liberal CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill, host Ana Cabrera wrongly claimed that President Donald Trump had lamented that it is a scary time for "white men" when in reality his actual quote did not mention race at all but referred to "young men."
On Saturday's CNN Newsroom, host Ana Cabrera did not bother to fact check former Senator Barbara Boxer when the far-left California Democrat wrongly claimed that President Donald Trump "wants to put women in jail" for having abortions.
