Between Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, the media have again shown they are more interested in news that portrays police officers as mistreating suspects than they are in updating viewers with information that counts in the cops' favor. After mostly ignoring Sacramento County's official autopsy of Stephon Clark that contradicts a private autopsy that claimed he was mostly shot by police in the back, all three broadcast networks pounced on a story this week about police officers confronting a black student at Yale University who fell asleep while studying in a common area who turned out to be doing nothing wrong.
CNN doesn’t usually air clippings of nationally syndicated columnists during the regular news day, but they just had to make an exception on Thursday for Washington Post columnist George Will’s nasty attack on Vice President Pence. In the 3 pm hour, subsitute anchor Brianna Keilar brought on Jake Tapper to savor the "merciless" and "brutal" Will column.
Of course, following the resignation of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D) for allegations of beating his various girlfriends over the years, a key concern for the liberal media has been ensuring his litany of litigation against President Trump would continue onward. It was a major point of discussion during CNN Newsroom Tuesday afternoon as host Brianna Keilar questioned CNN political commentator and New York City journalist Errol Louis about the future of the numerous lawsuits.
It looks like the media and the left have found a new argument in their quest to prove that Republicans hate children. Taking a break from accusing Republicans of hating children for refusing to jump on board with student activists demanding gun control, CNN's At This Hour has found a new sympathetic group to rally around: activist Oklahoma public school teachers.
On Thursday's At This Hour on CNN, Symone Sanders joined Angela Rye in the list of liberal CNN political commentators who have repeated a discredited myth that the gunman in the Charleston church massacre, Dylann Roof, was given special treatment by police before being incarcerated. During a debate over President Donald Trump's reaction to the police killings of Alton Sterling and Stephon Clark, Sanders claimed that police actually took Roof on a trip to Burger King to eat before taking him to jail in spite of his having murdered nine people.
During Monday’s edition of CNN's At this Hour, guest host Brianna Keilar brought on the New York Times’ Science and Health reporter Donald McNeil Jr. to discuss the flu epidemic sweeping the nation. McNeil had previously written an article for the Times arguing that President Trump needs to do more to protect public health.
During the past few days, several news outlets -- including the New York Times and CNN -- have reported that during Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, the Democratic candidate “overruled” a sexual misconduct charge made by one of her senior advisers. Most national media outlets skipped over that Clinton-embarrassing scoop.
Just when you thought CNN couldn’t cheapen itself any further, it did, folks. On Thursday, CNN Newsroom reacted to a powerful White House statement Chief of Staff and Gen. John Kelly (Ret.) amidst the Gold Star families controversy by noting Kelly’s personal sacrifices before lambasting him for calling out a Democratic member of Congress and attacking the media.
Since when did CNN reporter Jeff Zeleny become an amateur psychologist who can somehow determine the mental attitude of someone from a distance? Today Zeleny did his best to win CNN fake news accolades from his bosses by claiming that President Trump somehow displayed very little empathy for the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Appearing as a guest on Friday's New Day on CNN to discuss the recent tensions between the U.S. and North Korea, New York Times columnist Tom Friedman went so far as to recommend that the U.S. should offer to recognize the legitimacy of the North Korean regime in an effort to get the dictatorial government to give up its nuclear weapons.
Hillary Clinton came out of the woods to deliver another vicious anti-Trump speech Friday afternoon and the media couldn’t get enough of it. Clinton was delivering the commencement address at her alma mater Wellesley College, and both MSNBC and CNN took precious time out from their endless Russia conspiracy coverage to gush over the failed presidential candidate’s “fiery” “takedown” of our president
During an interview by Cable News Network anchor Brianna Keilar on Tuesday morning, May 9, CNN Politics Reporter and Editor-at-Large Chris Cillizza addressed the question of whether Republican President Donald Trump is causing liberal Democrats to embrace many bizarre "conspiracy theories."
Cillizza asserted that he's seen a rise in people mistakenly accepting the concepts that the House of Representatives celebrated last week's passage of health-care legislation with a beer party, that rape and sexual assault would not be pre-existing conditions in that law, the Federal Communications Commission was targeting CBS late-night host Stephen Colbert, and the chief usher was fired over a disagreement with the Trumps.
