In the aftermath of the Des Moines Register running an op ed by Rob Tibbetts calling for politicians to cease referring to his daughter, Mollie Tibbetts, in the immigration debate, two CNN personalities have repeated the questionable claims that illegal immigrants have a lower rate of committing crimes than native-born U.S. citizens. Additionally, the networks conflated opposition to illegal immigration with being "anti-immigrant" or "racist" toward Hispanics generally.
As of 1:00 p.m. Tuesday, CNN has not spent a second of airtime on Monday night’s revelation that Michael Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis now admits to lying on-air to Anderson Cooper when he denied being a key source for a massively-hyped news item CNN broke last month.
On Tuesday night, CNN again treated it as somehow newsworthy that a public official may have family members that they are not even close to who disagree with them politically as host Anderson Cooper showed a pre-recorded interview with retired Dr. David Glosser, the uncle of White House advisor Stephen Miller, about an op ed in Politico he wrote in which he called Miller an "immigration hypocrite."
On Monday evening, CNN’s Anderson Cooper endured the political equivalent of banging one’s head against a wall as his guests repeatedly disagreed with his framing of President Trump as a racist for questioning the intelligence of NBA star LeBron James. In a segment near the end of his 8:00 p.m. Eastern show, a frustrated Cooper repeatedly saw his narrative shot down by two black guests, neither of whom appeared willing to act as the racial pawns that the CNN host clearly wished they would be.
President Donald Trump’s “cataclysmic” pick of Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court and his act of “treason” at his Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin prompted the media to turn up their outrage volume to 11 this month. The following are the worst liberal outbursts over the last month from lefty journalists and celebrities:
Over an 18-hour period spanning two days, anchors on MSNBC and CNN all read from the same script as they warned viewers that President Trump’s typical criticism of the liberal media during a Tuesday address was akin to the authoritarian regime described in George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984.
It’s true that President Trump often says untrue things in an effort to spin a narrative to fit his agenda. But if there’s one thing the liberal media hates, it’s someone horning in on their turf. This was clearly apparent during Tuesday’s edition of AC360 when host Anderson Cooper bemoaned how the President was "gaslighting" America by telling people not to believe all the biased news stories against him. But, in order to chastise him, Cooper and his guests twisted reality.
Ardently Anti-Trump late night host Stephen Colbert invited CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Bravo’s Andy Cohen on The Late Show July 18, to gush about how great Cooper’s outburst against the president on-air Monday was after Trump’s remarks in Helsinki.
Within mere hours of President Trump’s press conference with Vladimir Putin concluding, cable news had worked themselves into a frenzy that suggested the sky itself must be falling. While criticism of Trump’s foreign policy decisions – especially those pertaining to Russia – has been bipatisan, the sheer meoldrama of the liberal media’s comments suggested they had lost sight of what they were even covering.
In a disturbing declaration during Monday’s CNN Newsroom following President Trump’s controversial press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin, CNN analyst and former CIA/FBI official Philip Mudd called for a self-appointed “shadow government” to step forward and counter the democratically elected one. He then had the audacity to complain about “Trumpianism” fighting Americanism.
After AC360 host Anderson Cooper deemed Monday's Trump-Putin press conference “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president,” the craziness continued with Cooper stating that “today is just an incredibly depressing moment in our time in our history as an American” while other panelists opined that it’s been a “surreal” day known as “the surrender summit.”
Reacting to the late Monday morning joint press conference (U.S. time) between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, CNN’s Anderson Cooper declared that he had just witnessed “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit in front of a Russian leader certainly that I've ever seen” at “[a]n extraordinary press conference.”
