In the recent aftermath of the trial in which former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor was convicted of killing an unarmed white woman, Justine Damond, after she called 9-1-1 in July 2017 to report a possible crime, CNN showed its double standard in attention given to alleged police misconduct based on the race of the victim.
The New York Times’ hostile coverage of the annual White House Easter Egg Roll proved the paper wouldn’t dare give the Trump administration an easy boost with the non-offensive ritual, the way it did during the Obama administration. The headline in Tuesday’s edition was the giveaway: “Easter Eggs Come With a Side of Politics.” The online headline: “At a White House Tradition, Politics Color Everything but the Easter Eggs."
Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter opened the show Sunday by talking about how the Mueller report revealed “a White House of lies, lies like nothing this nation has ever seen before.” Stelter proceeded to give a lecture about “morality,” as he and his guests tried to make the argument that the immoral behavior outlined in the Mueller report makes President Trump unfit to hold office.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Monday’s Fox & Friends and responded to the latest insults from ever-bitter CNN political analyst and American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan, who had stated on Thursday that Sanders “can’t” be “trust[ed]” and quipped that she should have her head “lopp[ed]....off.”
A CNN political analyst and American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent, April Ryan has never liked White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. The reporter had once started a feud with Sanders because she thought the Secretary didn’t really bake a pie, and even suggested the Secretary wanted to fight her. But in the wake of the Mueller report, and Sander’s testimony in it, Ryan demanded that President Trump fire her for lying.
CNN has not hesitated to slam President Trump as a sexist in recent months. Believe it or not, the network has now attached that word to a left-wing political figure generally adored by the legacy media: Michelle Obama. While the rest of the panel on CNN Right Now Tuesday took issue with some comments recently made by the former First Lady, CNN political analyst April Ryan defended her for speaking “her truth” about President Trump.
The New York Times published a gargantuan item Tuesday about how Republicans and the Trump White House have dealt with the federal probes that have enveloped the Trump presidency. With that mind, CNN Right Now reacted with what’s become predictable hyperbole, deeming it a sign that America’s in “a constitutional crisis” with a President who committed an “impeachable offense” by meddling in one of those investigations.
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 Friday's Erin Burnett Outfront on CNN, during a discussion of revelations that Virginia Democratic Governor Ralph Northam included a racist photograph in his portion of his medical school's yearbook, frequent Republican guest Stephen Moore was lambasted and cut off by other panel members when he brought up the other controversy involving Northam from this week -- that he defended an extreme abortion legalization bill by speaking approvingly of allowing some babies to die immediately after birth if the mother chose to do so.
Still irritated by President Trump taking no questions during his first press briefing in the White House press room on Thursday, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon was so exasperated that he started making up words. “Can you believe this day? Oh, my gosh. April, before we get into any of this, were you there when the fake briefing … The ‘friefing’ [was called],” he asked CNN political analyst April Ryan.
On Thursday night, correspondent Randi “Kush” Kaye offered an hour-long special on the White House Briefing Room that served as nothing more than a pompous exercise in lamenting how they believe the Trump administration has been unfair to them and are unraveling American democracy. The endeavor was dominated by attempts to make viewers to feel bad for CNN, fondly look back on past administrations, and offer hissy fits about how, thanks to online and social media outlets, they’ve lost the ability to control the minds of the American public.
Though they decreased dramatically in frequency as 2018 wore on, the year still offered plenty of aggravating and head-scratching moments inside the White House Briefing Room. Whether it was CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta making a fool of himself, CNN political analyst April Ryan trying to make herself into a martyr, or most of the press corps questioning the President’s mental state, there were any number of possible nominees.
