File this one as yet another instance in which the liberal media took President Trump’s bait, hook, line, and sinker, launching into apocalyptic meltdowns and illustrating for the American public how, for those on the right not in The Resistance, they’re the opposition party. On Thursday afternoon, CNN suffered a network-wide meltdown over Trump’s letter canceling Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s overseas trip less than an hour before take-off, calling the President a “childish” and “cranky” schoolboy who’s only concerned about “pure politics.”
CNN’s all-female panel couldn’t contain their excitement over Democrat Nancy Pelosi being elected again as House Speaker, after she last assumed that role in 2007. CNN’s Dana Bash in particular provided over-the-top feminist commentary on how amazing the swampy liberal politician was, despite her low favorability ratings and partisan record.
As Newsbusters has previously reported, the CBS Evening News was the only one of Thursdays evening’s news broadcasts to mention an Antifa mob showing up at Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s house in the northwestern quadrant of Washington, D.C. Wednesday evening, shouting threats and vandalizing his driveway. On CNN and MSNBC, only one program on Thursday even bothered to mention the assault: CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin. Most other cable news programs devoted their airtime to pushing for gun control and losing their minds over President Trump’s nomination of Matthew Whitaker as Acting Attorney General.
For all of the characters that make up the Jeffrey Zucker-led circus at CNN, perhaps no one speaks in hyperbole more than longtime liberal journalist and CNN analyst Carl Bernstein. In separate appearances Wednesday night and Thursday morning, Bernstein reacted to the firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions by calling it a “coup” by “a rageaholic President...who has no understanding of the importance and primacy and rule of law in our system.”
To put it simply, CNN is lying to its viewers whenever folks like Ana Navarro are presented as a “Republican strategist.” The Jeffrey Zucker-led circus did just that on Monday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom as the panel giggled and marveled at Navarro’s turn to the left offering childish insults about Republicans and vote for Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum.
Friday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom showed its more than committed to being in the opposition party, hailing a rally featuring former President Barack Obama as “an extraordinary moment” and “so interesting” while lashing out at current President Donald Trump for suggesting that the media have contributed to rising tensions and violence in our country.
Following the Senate’s confirmation vote to elevate Brett Kavanaugh to an associate justice of the Supreme Court, a radical pack of leftist protesters descended on the highest court in the land. Together, some scaled the statues while others clawed and banged on the historic building's massive bronze doors. By all reasonable accounts, it was a raging mob but the liberal media despised that term. During Wednesday’s edition of his show, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson chastised the media for their nonsense.
Liberal cable news outlets were outraged over the weekend when Republicans condemned the thuggish behavior of leftwing protesters and political groups repeatedly attempting to disrupt the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh. CNN and MSNBC hosts urgently rushed to defend the throngs of activists, in a melodramatic panic over the newest addition to the GOP leadership’s lexicon: “mob.”
After almost a month of attempts to impugn Brett Kavanaugh with flimsy, uncorroborated, 11th hour allegations, the liberal media saw their attempts come up empty on Saturday with Kavanaugh’s official confirmation to the Supreme Court. But left behind in their wake was one dumpster fire after another, ranging from fake news to bias that radicalized even the most hardened Never Trumpers to rally behind the Judge.
Ostensibly conservative Senator Jeff Flake earned himself a cavalcade of new fans on liberal cable news outlets Friday afternoon after calling for a delay in the full Senate vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. In the moments following the Judiciary Committee vote where Flake made his remarks, hosts, pundits, and guests on CNN and MSNBC began tripping over themselves to celebrate this rare victory for 'bipartisanship' -- which just so happened to produce the very outcome they'd been demanding for days.
Reacting to Tuesday’s sentencing of Bill Cosby for sexual assault, CNN and MSNBC guests were allowed without pushback by CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin and MSNBC Live’s Katy Tur to compare Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to the sexually violent celebrity who’s had 60 women accuse him of sexual misconduct.
After playing footage of an annoyed Mitch McConnell denouncing the treatment of Brett Kavanaugh, CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin on Monday allowed viewers to know what she’s REALLY concerned with: Merrick Garland. Rather than start with Kavanaugh or the accusations, Baldwin spat: “Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican leader, just decided to lecture Democrats for their actions involving a Supreme Court nominee.”
