The liberal media took another massive blow on Wednesday after an independent investigation found that the high school students of Covington Catholic didn’t harass anyone last month at the Lincoln Memorial. Effectively proving that the liberal media reports about them were smears and lies, all three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) and principal Spanish-language networks (Telemundo and Univision) omitted the findings from their evening reports.
Despite the fact that CNN has covered the latest anti-Semitism from Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) throughout the day on Monday, numerous analysts and hosts have tried to assist Omar by muddying the waters, suggesting House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is also anti-Semitic for a tweet last year criticizing the left-wing views of Michael Bloomberg, George Soros, and Tom Steyer.
CNN special correspondent and far-left climate activist Bill “ignorant f***sticks” Weir joined afternoon CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin Thursday for a criticism-free lovefest in honor of the Green New Deal. All told, the pair determined it was akin to NASA and a necessary step to save Earth without offering any questions or answers about how this move toward communism would be paid for.
CNN women were mad. How dare anyone criticize female Democrats running for President! That was the theme on CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin on Thursday. The CNN anchor was unhappy that Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz praised an article by Roger Simon on PJ Media that mocked Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren. CNN's Kirsten Powers denounced PJ Media (and writer Roger L. Simon) as "pretty outside the mainstream, to be kind" and smelled sexism: "What's his problem with all the women in the Democratic Party?"
On Monday, the White House held its first press briefing in 41 days, a stat passed around the press about how it was the longest span between briefings since cameras were brought in during the Clinton administration. Despite this kvetching, CNN and MSNBC chose not to air a single second of the briefing live, which included an announcement of new Venezuela sanctions plus questions for White House Press Briefing Sarah Huckabee Sanders and three other administration officials.
Reacting to President Trump’s Friday afternoon decision to cave and reopen the government without border wall money, CNN Newsroom nonetheless eviscerated the President as if he had announced the government would be staying closed. Instead, anchors and correspondents condemned Trump as “shameful” for having “single handedly shut down the government” that caused “agony” and illustrated a White House not in touch “with reality.”
Tuesday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom dedicated a full segment to the shameful security threats to Covington Catholic High School, its students, and their families. However, it largely brushed off this horrible reality by focusing on a “poignant exchange” between a Native American and Trump supporter outside the Covington Diocese as well as defending the media writ large from their embarrassing behavior since Saturday afternoon.
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.
