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.”
After Tuesday’s heated press conference over Charlottesville, the media has been in a renewed frenzy over Trump’s comments. Over at CNN, the outrage seemed to be at its worst, with hosts sounding just like their radically left-wing guests. On the 7am hour of CNN’s New Day, fill-in host Poppy Harlow actually asked liberal reporter and CNN analyst April Ryan if Trump's slogan “Make America Great Again” was referring to the days when the KKK terrorized the South.
With Don Lemon taking some vacation, CNN Tonight has featured New Day co-host Chris Cuomo, so Wednesday’s show went as well as you’d expect with liberal propaganda, a full defense of Jim Acosta after being thrashed by Stephen Miller, and unchallenged fake news by April Ryan.
April Ryan has been a frequent subject this year at NewsBusters, given her proclivity to see racism where there is none, her failure to understand the difference between a person's annual income and their net worth, and her criticism of center-right news sites allowed into White House briefings as "fake news peddlers." Naturally, Ryan's next move after that final item was to join serial fake news perpetrator CNN as an analyst. Three months into her new gig, she has embarrassed herself several times, perhaps never moreso than on Monday, when she first tweeted her belief that a Trump administration official had made up the term "stagflation," and then pathetically tried to claim she had been joking.
The media is obsessed with Trump’s tweets, even moreso this week after a simple typo Trump made in the middle of the night, and was deleted shortly afterwards, sent reporters into a tailspin of faux confusion and concern. CNN New Day hosts Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota, along with analysts John Avlon and April Ryan, spent several minutes Thursday morning wondering what the obvious typo meant, and harping on the misspelling as some sort of sign that the White House was out of control.
After Republican congressional candidate Greg Gianforte slammed a reporter to the ground yesterday, the media has been in a flurry condemning the violence and trying to tie Donald Trump’s rhetoric to the attack. During a segment on CNN Newsroom Thursday afternoon, conservative radio host Ben Ferguson dismissed the notion that Trump was responsible, before pointing out the hypocrisy from Democrats in supporting disgraced elected officials in their own party. But Ferguson wasn’t able to make his point because as soon as he uttered the name of one of these Democrats, the liberal panel exploded in anger and shut him down.
