It’s certainly no secret that Republican President Donald Trump and the liberals in the “mainstream media” haven’t gotten along since before Trump was inaugurated on Saturday, January 20, 2017. However, that hostile relationship was raised several notches when CNN Tonight host Don Lemon accused Trump on Tuesday of using “Fake News” in such a harmful way that, in Lemon's book, it's inspired people to conspire to murder journalists.
As if their biased outbursts on CNN weren’t enough, chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta and political analyst April Ryan got the chance to unleash more of their rage at President Trump, in a friendly event hosted by the Newseum in Washington D.C., January 17, called “Journalism in the Trump Era.”
CNN political analyst April Ryan fangirled over the idea that Oprah Winfrey could run for president in 2020, on At This Hour With Kate Bolduan Monday morning. Ryan went on an irrational rant, gushing that the media mogul was both “every person” and a “rock star.”
Hours after White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced that former Apprentice contestant-turned-White House staffer, Omarosa Manigault Newman, had resigned, and would be leaving the White House this January, CNN's April Ryan reported that she was actually fired.
Monday’s White House press briefing was another one for the ages as CNN’s self-righteous senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta came ready to rumble against press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, but quickly ran into the proverbial buzzsaw during a debate on liberal media bias. Acosta fetched plenty of support as journalists could be heard shouting throughout the exchange in efforts to heckle Sanders (led by CNN political analyst Brian Karem).
April Ryan, an inexplicably esteemed member of the White House press corps, having tried and failed to promote a "fake news" controversy over White House's Press Secretary Sarah Sanders' Thanksgiving pecan pie, has not apologized or acknowledged her error, has rejected Sanders' face-saving attempt to smooth things over, and is apparently worried that Sanders will publicly poison her and her fellow journalists. You can't make this stuff up.
CNN went into full trolling mode on Tuesday, wondering if the current administration “thinks slavery is wrong.” Additionally, the network decided it was too much to simply show press briefings with Sarah Huckabee Sanders, CNN must oppose her with an on-screen graphic “correcting” her
Instead of being responsible in this sad dispute concerning the death of Sgt. La David Johnson, CNN has shown repeatedly (here, here, and here) that it wants to have it both ways in attacking John Kelly for his Thursday remarks but bemoaning criticism of Democratic Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (Fla.). Thursday’s CNN Tonight served as one such example, whether it was host Don Lemon knocking Kelly’s advice to President Trump about what to tell Johnson’s widow or American Urban Radio Networks correspondent April Ryan crying foul about Kelly “discrediting” Wilson.
On Friday afternoon, CNN didn’t take too well to President Trump’s speech decertifying the Iran nuclear deal, but it was CNN International host Christiane Amanpour who was the hardest hit, bemoaning the President correctly asserting Iran as evil and arguing that all this will make Israel and the U.S. far less safe.
On Wednesday’s CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon took the extraordinary step of conceding that Hillary Clinton made mistakes during the election that she won’t acknowledge, but it didn’t sit well with CNN political analyst and American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan as she vehemently defended Clinton.
For Friday’s White House press briefing, reporters decided to play the role of lobbyists standing up for illegal immigrants known as DREAMers ahead of President Trump’s decision about whether to end the program. Reporters from a variety of outlets took it upon themselves to inquire about whether DREAMers are real Americans and question the President’s compassion for others seeing as how, if he decided to end it, droves of people could be “sen[t]...out of the country.”
CNN Tonight led the way in providing the left’s response to Tuesday’s Trump rally in Arizona, openly rooting for the President’s removal from office. It was all kickstarted by host Don Lemon’s rant immediately afterward denouncing Trump as a unstable, unintelligent child attacking “an imaginary friend.”
