While the immediate reaction on CNN’s Wolf Friday afternoon to former President Barack Obama’s angry, bitter speech against President Trump was more timid than expected in avoiding an Obama lovefest, CNN Newsroom afternoon host Brooke Baldwin and her experts came through in reminding us that this is a network of The Resistance.
Leaving the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing to spend two segments hyperventilating over Bob Woodward’s upcoming book on the Trump White House, CNN Newsroom afternoon host Brooke Baldwin gave CNN contributor and anti-Trumper John Dean the floor to slam Kavanaugh. In addition, Baldwin misled viewers by not only just footnoting that Dean will testify later this week at Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, but did not mention how he would be doing it as a witness on behalf of Senate Democrats to thwart Kavanaugh’s chances of reaching the Supreme Court.
CNN displayed its hypocrisy Tuesday afternoon on CNN Newsroom as host Brooke Baldwin and liberal journalist Amy Chozick hailed the virtues of porn star Stormy Daniels in light of her profile by Chozick in Vogue. The pair spent over five minutes dubbing Daniels as merely a “fun,” “working mom” who posed for Vogue “like you have never seen her” as she grapples with “the psychological and personal toll” of being President Trump’s “perfect adversary” but a “beacon of The Resistance.”
If impeaching Trump is the ultimate goal of the liberal media, fearmongering about a Mike Pence presidency must already be on their minds. That seemed to be the goal of CNN Tuesday when the network had on one of the authors of a new anti-Pence book on both New Day and CNN Newsroom August 28, to ask how the Vice President was really a “Christian supremacist” that all Americans should be worried about.
In a discussion over whether to rename the Richard Russell Senate office building in favor of John McCain, CNN on Tuesday managed to blame the original honoring of the segregationist Democrat on... Republicans. In a segment that never once mentioned which party Russell belonged to, host Brooke Baldwin and historian Tim Naftali instead singled out Richard Nixon’s GOP.
CNN ignored President Trump’s speech at an event honoring ICE and Customs and Border Patrol on Monday, having calculated that their time was better spent complaining about a day-old tweet. As the President addressed a room full of law enforcement and administration officials at the White House, CNN’s Brooke Baldwin spoke a length with author Arthur Herman about a weekend tweet in which Trump had compared Special Counsel Robert Mueller to Senator Joseph McCarthy.
On Tuesday, CNN aired a segment taking a look into administration officials and even Republican members of Congress who have relatives that appear to disagree with their work. CNN’s White House Correspondent Chris Cillizza joined host Brooke Baldwin to give a rundown of the spats.
On Tuesday night, CNN again treated it as somehow newsworthy that a public official may have family members that they are not even close to who disagree with them politically as host Anderson Cooper showed a pre-recorded interview with retired Dr. David Glosser, the uncle of White House advisor Stephen Miller, about an op ed in Politico he wrote in which he called Miller an "immigration hypocrite."
For much of the day on Friday and into the weekend, various hosts on both CNN and MSNBC were hard at work smearing Fox News host Laura Ingraham as someone who uses her show to promote "racist" and "white supremacist" views as they reacted to a commentary she gave on The Ingraham Angle show in which she advocated for merit-based immigration and lamented dramatic "massive demographic" changes.
Early Friday, NewsBusters reported that CNN spent only one minute of airtime on the recanting of a former Ohio State University wrestler’s allegations against Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan. After reviewing coverage of the original NBC article which leveled the claims against Jordan, NewsBusters found that there was a massive discrepancy in reporting.
Less than 10 minutes after his latest verbal brawl Thursday afternoon with White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta was given a hero’s welcome to CNN Newsroom where he reiterated how he’s “tired of this” “un-American” behavior from Sanders and President Trump regarding the press being “the enemy of the people.”
Over the past several days, the broadcast networks and CNN have shown a blatant double standard in showing more interest in a concealed carry holder who may have abused his right to self-defense by picking a fight with a man before shooting him, in contrast with several other cases from recent weeks in which gun owners more sympathetically used their weapons to defend themselves against unprovoked attacks.
