Illustrating why they’re the opposition party and are focused on pleasing the Adam Schiffs of the world by helping to overthrow the Trump administration, Thursday’s CNN Right Now was in an apoplectic state following comments from “lying” Vice President Mike Pence defending President Donald Trump’s July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky
Between Friday morning and Saturday morning, several shows on CNN, CBS, and NBC took the time to highlight a bullying case in which three white boys allegedly held down a black classmate and forceably cut her long hair after a history of taunting her. Even though it had nothing to do with the story, several shows made a point of noting that Vice President Mike Pence's wife, Karen, teaches at the same school, Immanuel Christian School in Northern Virginia.
What do ABC’s Tom Llamas (with colleagues Lucien Bruggeman, and Matthews Mosk), CNN’s John King, Michelle Malkin, The New Yorker’s Adam Entous, and James Risen all have in common? Apparently, CNN deemed those people to be conspiracy theorists on Friday since they’ve raised questions about Joe Biden’s interactions with the Ukranian government while son Hunter Biden was on the board of a Ukrainian energy company.
When a conservative guest appears on CNN, he or she can expect to be hammered by a host attempting to drive a wedge between Republicans. That’s what happened early Thursday afternoon, when Rand Paul was on the CNN Right Now program and anchor Brianna Keilar attempted to use an “odd feud” between the Kentucky Congressman and Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney to accuse them of engaging in a “butt-kissing contest” that’s “unbecoming of two members of Congress.”
On Wednesday, CNN showcased yet again their unsavory penchant for gun control and confiscation without facts and knowing little about an arrest warrant gone wrong in Philadelphia that left six police officers hurt. Unfortunately, this behavior continued into Thursday with 19 minutes and 28 seconds of gun control lobbying in context of the incident during their first 12 hours of live programming.
During CNN Right Now Thursday, host Brianna Keilar and her panel analyzed the CNN Democratic debates. While the conversation included the typical analysis associated with cable news programs, one of the panelists brought up a conspiracy theory about one of the Democratic candidates, Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, running as a Russian-backed third-party candidate.
CNN has gone after Sinclair Broadcast Group for having affiliates read scripts about fake news. But what about CNN’s penchant for identical segments with little independence for its hosts? Well, an example popped up Monday with the President criticizing Baltimore for its rampant crime, decrepit conditions, and Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-MD), who’s gerrymandered-district includes much of the city. Instead of acknowledging that, CNN journalists called Trump’s comments full of “hate” and “racist” often alongside the chyron “Politics of Hate” between 4:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Eastern.
CNN continued bashing President Trump for his rhetoric against the Squad on Tuesday. CNN Right Now invited Wajahat Ali, a New York Times columnist and CNN contributor, on to speak about Trump’s comments. Ali criticized the President and his supporters for contributing to a “pattern” of what he considers “white nationalism.” He then spouted out a number of falsehoods to back up this claim. The columnist accused Trump of calling Mexicans rapists, a lie that even Politifact gave a false rating to during the 2016 election.
After hosting the first two-night debate of Democratic candidates at the end of June for the 2020 presidential election, CNN decided to add some drama to the process of selecting participants for the second round, which will take place on July 30 and 31. That choice drew fire from James Poniewozik, chief television critic for the New York Times, who slammed the selection as giving the Thursday night program “the appearance of a Powerball drawing and just as much depth.”
On CNN Right Now Wednesday, host Brianna Keilar gushed over a cartoon dramatization of the Mueller report. An excited Keilar talked about how “there’s now an entertaining way that you can catch up” on the details of the Mueller report.” This “entertaining way” came in the form of a graphic novel designed to follow Insider’s instructions to “tell a story recounting Mueller’s report that’s so gripping it will hold your attention (and maybe your congressional representative’s).”
Over the course of about 28 minutes of airtime (including commercials) following the President’s Fourth of July event A Salute to America, CNN’s The Situation Room put on one of the most disgraceful displays of liberal media bias, Trump hatred, and slights at America you’ll ever see. Attacking the President like bitter preschoolers, a cast of CNN personalities bashed the Trump speech as a “rudimentary” “eighth grade history” report ripping off of Schoolhouse Rock and Wikipedia to create a work of “jingoism and militaristic virtue.”
In an update to the coverage totals posted by NewsBusters’s Nick Fondacaro here and here, the flagship major broadcast networks CBS and NBC still have yet to acknowledge the Antifa violence committed on Saturday in Portland, Oregon, which included the brutal beating and milkshaking of Quillette’s Andy Ngo, which left him badly injured with a brain bleed. Along with CBS and NBC, MSNBC and The New York Times have joined them in the refusal to denounce this legitimate, actual attack (sorry not sorry, Jim Acosta) on a journalist for simply doing their job.
