Within a half-hour of President Trump concluding Saturday's coronavirus briefing, CNN brought on Brian Stelter so they could wail in agony about Trump starting the meeting by berating the press. As usual, CNN painted the liberal media as "really crucial" in this crisis, and the president as a "very dangerous" oaf.
In a horrendous lie on CNN Sunday afternoon first flagged by the Trump campaign, CNN hosts Ana Cabrera and Boris Sanchez displayed a gross arrogance, immaturity, and snarkiness in repeatedly lying by telling viewers on Saturday and Sunday that President Trump initially chalked up the coronavirus to having been “a hoax.” Fact-checker after fact-checker (and even liberal ones) decried this falsehood, but in Zuckerville, such gaslighting is not only encouraged, but it’s become a requirement to survive at CNN.
Being one of the liberal media’s more beloved candidates in the 2020 race, it made sense that CNN Newsroom was in awe of former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s speech announcing that he would quitting the race, calling it “awesome,” “presidential timber,” “well done,” and Obama-like in “oratory” with “that even-Stephen baritone” voice.
Liberal cable hosts have found an unlikely new cudgel with which to attack President Trump: former National Security Adviser John Bolton, who recently panned the President’s North Korea policy as having “failed.” TV journalists on Monday treated this critique from Bolton as lucid and credible — yet these same networks back in 2018 described Bolton as a “dangerous” advocate for “war with North Korea.”
CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter apppeared on their Newsroom show on Saturday afternoon to preach an early sermon that the dismissive impeachment chatter of Fox News opinion hosts "hurts all of us because it makes it impossible to have a debate about the facts." Stelter seems to avoid the notion that when you tell the Fox audience that facts that are unfriendly to the liberal narrative aren't facts, but "Fox News conspiracy propaganda stuff," you're already unwilling to debate.
Over the past couple of months, as there have been signs that President Donald Trump is finally making progress in turning the tide on illegal border crossings, Fox News Channel has given substantial coverage to several critical successes while the other networks have barely touched these developments.
On Saturday afternoon, CNN followed up on its Friday morning hosts gushing over the NFL's Ryan Russell coming out as bisexual by continuing to do its part to promote gay rights as CNN sports analyst Christine Brennan predicted the NFL must "encourage" more gays to come out so that it can be "viable" in the future.
With Antifa still assaulting and harassing peaceful “right-wing” marchers, police, and journalists in the streets of Portland, Oregon on Saturday, CNN Newsroom host Ana Cabrera and the network found it controversial that President Trump would want to accurately brand the extreme far-left group as the domestic terrorists that they were. She would tee up New Mexico Congresswoman Debra Haaland to defend the group as “peaceful protesters”.
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.
After hosting the first two-night debate of Democratic candidates at the end of June for the 2020 presidential election, CNN decided to add some drama to the process of selecting participants for the second round, which will take place on July 30 and 31. That choice drew fire from James Poniewozik, chief television critic for the New York Times, who slammed the selection as giving the Thursday night program “the appearance of a Powerball drawing and just as much depth.”
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.
