One of the biggest takeaways from Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate on ABC, was that the radical left wasn’t shy about telling the public what their plans for guns were. At one point, former Congressman Beto O’Rourke (TX) was raging and promised: “Hell, yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.” It was a radical declaration that went under-discussed during CNN’s post-debate analysis and didn’t seem to concern anyone on the panel.
As is usually the case with CNN, hosts are reduced to no more than puppets in Jeffrey Zucker’s play, willfully reading from nearly identical scripts as they peddle their daily doses of venom for not only President Trump, but anyone who stands in the way of their far-left, anti-gun, pro-abortion, and pro-Green New Deal vision (to name a few policies). So for seven hours on Wednesday, CNN’s primetime hosts began each of the ten 2020 Democratic presidential “climate crisis” town halls by asserting that Hurricane Dorian exists because of climate change.
CNN’s 10 back-to-back “climate crisis” town halls with 2020 Democrats were every bit a sideshow one could expect them to be. But there a few moments, Wednesday night, that stood out as particularly off the rails. Between advocating for global abortions, $16 trillion in new government spending, and insidious proposals to manipulate what you eat, it had some people pointing out it was a gold mine for GOP campaign ads.
The liberal media were irate Thursday and became the physical embodiment of the internet’s so-called “cancel culture” in the wake of news that former Trump press secretaries Sarah Sanders and Sean Spicer got new jobs on TV. During that night’s edition of the unfunny “Ridiculist” on AC360, CNN host Anderson Cooper bitterly lashed out at the two, declaring: “Tonight, let there be no doubt that big, shiny, elegant, gold-plated opportunities, gorgeous opportunities await those who deceive the country on behalf of President Trump.”
During Wednesday’s edition of Anderson Cooper 360, the eponymous host aired an excerpt of his lengthy interview with Stephen Colbert, host of The Late Show. Not surprisingly, the interview involved plenty of Trump-bashing on the part of both Cooper and Colbert.
It could be said that faux Republican, CNN global affairs analyst, and Washington Post columnist Max Boot has lost his mind, but the reality is he hasn’t been cogent for awhile. Showing a Trumpian-like inability to take criticism, CNN gave Max Boot space Tuesday night to accuse National Review and former NewsBusters intern John Hirschauer of being....white supremacists?
Even though Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren wasn’t on the debate stage Wednesday for night two of CNN’s Democratic primary debates, the network’s journalists still declared her the winner. After the debate finally wrapped up, CNN’s crack team of partisan journalists wasted little time in declaring Warren the stand out candidate.
CNN host Anderson Cooper pressed Warren on what her ideas would cost people, particularly union workers, who liked their health insurance. Meanwhile, MSNBC host Chris Matthews absolutely grilled the Senator about how much taxes would need to go up to pay for it all and her refusal to answer the question.
Appearing as a guest on the Monday edition of CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 , New York Times columnist Tom Friedman tried to give advice to Democrats on how to best beat President Donald Trump next year, lamely suggesting that they label the President a "chump" for relocating the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. He also fearmongered that the country could not "recover" from a second term of Trump, and worried that Democrats are being too openly to the left in some of the issues they have been pushing.
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.”
Apparently, the people at the liberal MSNBC channel don’t want their counterparts at CNN to feel lonely in the ratings cellar. Whether or not that was the motivation for the eight-week debut of the new Saturday Night Politics program, the results are still the same: low ratings and little interest in the 8 p.m. show hosted by frequent Morning Joe contributor Donny Deutsch.
In addition to all but agreeing with President Trump’s “Sleepy Joe” nickname, CNN’s exclusively liberal panel thought Thursday was a terrible debate night for Vice President Joe Biden because of a heated exchange he had with Senator Kamala Harris (CA) over federal busing in the south during the civil rights movement. According to the panel, the idea that states had the right to make laws for themselves that differed from one another was a travesty with its roots in racism.
