On Monday's Anderson Cooper 360, the smearing of Steve Bannon went so far as to claim that he and other White House advisors have "ties to hate groups" as host Cooper set up a discussion of rumors that he might soon leave the White House. As if the right-leaning Breitbart News might be a "hate group," Cooper cited Bannon's time there, and his quote from more than a year ago about giving a "platform to the Alt-Right."
Even though the next presidential election won’t be held for more than three years, Donald Trump’s campaign staff is already hard at work, including the production of a 30-second television advertisement entitled “Let President Trump Do His Job.” It doesn’t take long for the ad to attack the Republican official’s “enemies” in both the mainstream media and Congress.
People who follow the news from the “mainstream media” are constantly being barraged with poll after poll that claim Donald Trump is constantly hitting new “record lows” in his popularity across the country. Besides the possibility that these pollsters were among those who confidently proclaimed that Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton would trounce Republican Donald Trump in last November’s presidential election, people in the press have avoided reporting on at least one place where the GOP leader is more popular than his Democratic predecessor: the Middle East.
The highlight of CNN’s primetime lineup Tuesday was their Climate Change Crisis town hall where they teamed up with former Vice President and climate alarmist Al Gore to push his propaganda. “Consensus in the scientific community is clear. Sea levels are rising. The oceans are warming,” moderator Anderson Cooper declared as he started the program. The event became even more ridiculous when Gore equated getting people to believe him was like the Civil Rights movement, in that “it's just really a question of right and wrong.”
Late in Tuesday’s AC360, former Republican National Committee (RNC) official and CNN political commentator Mike Shields unloaded on his fellow panelists and the news media at large for failing to connect with Americans outside the Washington D.C. area.
Appearing as a guest on Monday's Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN, New York Times columnist Tom Friedman tagged President Donald Trump as a "chump" who has been "manipulated" by Russia and "played" by China. He even oddly lumped in Israel as a country that has "manipulated" President Trump.
Anderson Cooper wore his bias on his sleeve in a recent interview with former Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Cooper brought Bloomberg on his show June 20, to discuss his new coal documentary and failed to challenge him about the millions the billionaire politician spent to shut down coal plants.
On Wednesday afternoon, CNN announced that it has fired far-left lewd comedienne Kathy Griffin from her long-running New Year’s Eve show after Griffin took a page from ISIS’s playbook 24 hours earlier by holding up a bloodied (but fake) severed head pretending to be President Trump.
For much of Tuesday, the country joined in rare collective outrage at the viral image of comedian Kathy Griffin holding aloft a mock bloody severed head of President Trump. Politicos from the left and right side of the spectrum shared a sense of disgust over the image that some equated to promoting violence, while one writer for The Atlantic didn’t have a problem with it. But at roughly eight o’clock PM Eastern time, Griffin finally spoke out about the images and issued an apology.
This week, the Media Research Center posted a study of one CNN day showing that the network is obsessed with President Trump and that the overwhelming majority of CNN’s experts opining on Trump are highly negative. CNN’s rare allowance of pro-Trump voices often come from commentators they pay to defend Trump. So why insult them when that’s what you pay them to do?
On his primetime show Friday night, Anderson Cooper interrupted one of Jeffrey Lord's defenses of Trump night by saying "if he took a dump on his desk, you would defend it." Lord laughed and just kept making his point. Earth to Cooper: You’re paying him to defend Trump.
The liberal media are up in arms over President Trump’s labeling of the investigation into Russian hacking and the 2016 presidential campaign a “witch hunt.” All three broadcast networks led their Thursday evening newscasts with Trump’s use of the phrase, with NBC’s Lester Holt saying Trump was “lashing out.” Yet long before Donald Trump arrived in Washington, liberal reporters themselves employed the “witch hunt” slogan to discredit investigations into their Democratic friends, especially Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. But now that Trump uses the same tactic, it’s somehow deplorable?
After a whirlwind week in Washington, D.C. with the liberal media pouncing on every Trump news development as if it was the final nail in his presidency, CNN’s ‘ridiculous figure’ Brian Stelter and Anderson Cooper attacked conservative media for not sharing their excitement. “Downplay, deflect and deny. Conservative media types are at it again, whipping up alternative theories to explain away the threat that James Comey poses to President Trump,” Stelter chastised on Anderson Cooper 360 Thursday night.
