Seeing as how CNN’s existence can be boiled down to gaslighting Americans by deeming most everything President Trump and those not in the Resistance utter as conspiracy theories, perhaps CNN should look itself in the mirror. On Monday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, host Brooke Baldwin entertained a wild conspiracy theory about not holding a Senate impeachment trial.
It apparently doesn't take much to trigger CNN as far as President Donald Trump is concerned. In their latest iteration of perpetual outrage, CNN is irked over a funny meme which portrays Trump as the Marvel cartoon character of Thanos who with a snap of his finger, turns the House impeachment crew to dust.
On Wednesday night, NewsBusters examined the live coverage the top three cable news networks (CNN, FNC, and MSNBC) devoted to the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing featuring Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz and, most notably, far-left, pro-impeachment CNN only covered live 33.4 percent of the hearing. But when it came time for Wednesday’s impeachment hearing, CNN carried 99.9 percent of the primetime House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing.
On Friday, CNN anchors Brooke Baldwin and Anderson Cooper both celebrated House Speaker Nancy Pelosi snapping at Sinclair reporter James Rosen as both hosts brought on Speaker Pelosi's daughter, Christine Pelosi, as a guest to gloat about her mother's success in impressing liberals with her antagonistic behavior toward conservatives. Because who better than someone's daughter to provide a balanced look? At one point, Baldwin gushed, "Is this classic Nancy Pelosi? Is this the mom you've always known?"
Former Watergate investigative journalist Carl Bernstein joined CNN's Brooke Baldwin on Monday's CNN Newsroom to discuss the latest speculations surrounding impeachment and President Trump's use of Twitter. During the segment, Bernstein suggested that the Trump could be impeached for witness intimidation.
Cry me a river, CNN. And spare the rest of America your faux outrage. On Thursday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, host Brooke Baldwin offered a heaping of liberal hypocrisy by feigning outrage and disgust at Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) calling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “dumb” at a Wednesday night Trump rally.
As NewsBusters has previously reported, ABC World News Tonight was the only network newscast to report on the latest developments in the scandal surrounding Democratic Congresswoman Katie Hill’s relationship with one of her staffers; which has led to a probe from the Congressional Ethics Committee. Like CBS and NBC, MSNBC completely ignored the news about Hill. While the other left-wing cable network, CNN, aired a report on the Hill scandal, anchor Brooke Baldwin and reporter Kyung Lah had a very hard time hiding their admiration for the freshman Congresswoman.
While the alphabet soup networks tried making excuses for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s use of the word “lynching” to describe the Clinton impeachment, CNN host Brooke Baldwin did not give him a pass. During Wednesday’s edition of CNN Newsroom, Baldwin differentiated herself from her colleagues on the other networks by actually taking Democrats to task for their past use of the word “lynching.”
When it comes to complaints of liberal bias in the news media, media personalities often, intentionally or otherwise, miss the point. We are not interested in leading any "hate movements" nor do we believe that President Trump immune from criticism, but what we do reject is what CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin did her Tuesday show when she portrayed the battle between Trump versus the Democrats as the bad guys versus the good guys as if Democrats are pure in their motives and Trump represents a unique kind of threat to common decency.
To be blunt, weekday afternoon CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin is the daytime version of Don Lemon. While she’s promoted as a journalist, she’s no more than a pro-impeachment and pro-Resistance partisan who accepts most everything liberal guests tell her. Such was the case on Tuesday when she lectured viewers about how raising questions about the Biden family or the whistleblower was tantamount to spreading conspiracy theories. And to back her up, she turned to none other than fired FBI official, proven liar, and CNN contributor Andrew McCabe.
As previously documented by NewsBusters, a number of shows on the major networks late last week ran with reports of a racist bullying incident at Springfield, Virginia's Immanuel Christian School that, by late Monday morning, was revealed to be a hoax. The family of 12-year-old Amari Allen admitted that their daughter made up her story accusing three white classmates of forcibly cutting her long hair.
Shortly after prosecutors recommended charges for former FBI Deputy Director-turned-CNN contributor Andrew McCabe for lying to investigators, his colleague, CNN Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, rushed to his defense during an appearance on CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin Thursday. While dismissing the seriousness of the charges against McCabe, Toobin also attempted to portray him as the victim of a “vindictive crusade” orchestrated by the Trump administration.
