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.
As 2018 comes to a close, NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of the year. In today’s installment, we have the most outrageous examples of journalists fawning over liberal or left-wing icons. Examples include MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell gushing over Barack Obama: “His mind is too supple, too complex, too rich compared to my own.”
During Tuesday’s Erin Burnett OutFront, the eponymous host engaged in a discussion about the feisty Oval Office meeting between President Trump, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi; specifically focusing on Pelosi describing the border wall as a “manhood issue” for President Trump. Guest April Ryan basically called President Trump a sexist for his treatment of Pelosi in the Oval Office, in addition to effectively smearing him and all other supporters of a border wall as racists.
CNN contributor and American Urban Radio Network White House correspondent April Ryan appeared on Thursday’s The View, to join the hosts in complaining about President Trump’s treatment of the press, after Wednesday’s combative press conference. Co-host Joy Behar took the opportunity to bash Trump as a racist because he told Ryan to sit down during that presser, after she repeatedly tried to interrupt another reporter. The next day, the hosts continued the race-baiting.
After Wednesday’s free-wheeling and tense White House press conference, CNN went on the offensive against President Trump, illustrating a level of self-centeredness that’s unrivaled in the media and showing petty levels of emotion on-set reacting to the President’s condemnations and tense exchanges with chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta, political analyst April Ryan, and PBS’s Yamiche Alcindor.
Despite the fact that Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp held a lead outside the threshold needed for a runoff, Democrats and the liberal media were not conceding the state’s gubernatorial election. During CNN’s Election Night in America in the wee hours of Wednesday morning, CNN political analyst April Ryan was in hysterics as she pushed conspiracies of voter suppression, even going so far as to say voting right didn’t exist anymore.
For the first time since September 10, the White House held a press briefing Wednesday featuring not only Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, but also National Security Adviser John Bolton and neither disappointed as scores of liberal journalists came ready to rumble. Bolton set the tone in an exchange with CBS News White House correspondent Weijia Jiang, who seemed insulted that Bolton wasn’t giving more respect to the Palestinians by not referring to their land as a state. Turns out, Bolton had the facts on his side.
CNN political analyst and White House Correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks April Ryan appeared on The Daily Show Wednesday night to promote her new book about her time as a correspondent called “Under Fire.” The anti-Trump tone was evident from the beginning of the interview, with Noah and Ryan joking that her birthday wish was for Trump to be out of the White House
CNN analyst and White House correspondent for American Urban Radio April Ryan added to the media pile on of Republican nominee for governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, after he made an insensitive remark discussing his Democrat opponent’s liberal policies. The media seized on the gaffe Thursday morning, claiming it was a clear racist “dog whistle” that can be attributed to President Trump. Ryan herself slammed the Republican’s “mansplaining” on CNN’s New Day and bemoaned the lack of “political correctness” in today’s culture.
It looks like the media has found their new messiah in Andrew Gillum, the Democratic nominee for Governor of Florida. Gillum, the Bernie Sanders-backed Mayor of Tallahasse. Gillum pulled an upset by beating out establishment favorite Gwen Graham in Tuesday’s Democratic primary. Should he manage to win the general election, Gillum would become the first African-American Governor in the Sunshine State’s history.
