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.
In the latest of a series of anti-Trump rants promoted by CNN, anchor Brooke Baldwin touted a "fiery opinion piece" accusing Trump of leading America down a path to tyranny by Jeffrey Sachs on CNN.com. Sachs is a renowned international economist, and a Democrat (He donated $2,000 in 2003 to Howard Dean for President.)
A Tuesday afternoon CNN Newsroom segment illustrated the left's panic over the Supreme Court opening with guest and Daily Beast contributing editor Erin Gloria Ryan asserting that, if President Trump selects a woman, they “should be known as the Aunt Lydia of the Supreme Court” in reference to a villain from liberal dystopian show The Handmaid’s Tale. In addition, Ryan argued they shouldn’t be supported by women because they are the anthesis of feminism.
On Wednesday afternoon, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement announcement triggered a seismic legal and political tsunami and, as expected, some at CNN didn’t take it very well, fretting the loss of Kennedy as a “moderating force” who legalized sam-sex marriage, kept abortion legal, and saved affirmative action. In addition, one guest and former clerk lambasted Kennedy for his “extraordinary imprudent” move to retire with President Donald Trump in office.
Ryan Saavedra at the Daily Wire captured an instructional moment on CNN on Wednesday afternoon. Anchor Brooke Baldwin was interviewing Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis., no relation) on the separation of illegal-immigrant families at the border. The Senator from Wisconsin was on a tear, that the Trump zero-tolerance policy was "something that I think violated all American values. It was an un-American activity." Then the CNN host asked her if she felt that way four years ago under Obama. The senator just tap-danced around the question.
Moments after Thursday’s long-awaited release of the Department of Justice Inspector General report on the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation, a CNN Newsroom panel dismissed it as a “mild” report in which “[t]he other shoe didn’t drop” and will provide “[p]lenty of ammunition for both sides.” However, they fretted that the White House will “seize” on its findings and “take” a “victory lap” considering some of the findings.
The rolling disaster that is talk show host Samantha Bee’s hateful attack on Ivanka Trump continued on Thursday as CNN journalists condemned the TBS talk show host. Speaking of Bee’s disgusting smear of Ivanka Trump as “cunt,” S.E. Cupp declared: “What she said wasn't just unacceptable. Welcome to the misogyny club. I mean, she's joined by Keith Olbermann, one of the world’s most prolific misogynists.”
Here’s another example of something that would never have happened on CNNN when Barack Obama was living in the White House. On Tuesday afternoon, CNN Politics Reporter and Editor-at-Large Chris Cillizza spent several minutes picking apart a picture of President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania, French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte as they stood on a balcony during a meeting that was held at the White House.
During the 3 P.M. ET Hour of CNN Newsroom Tuesday, CNN analyst Tara Setmayer alleged that President Trump envies Jeff Bezos because he “is the richest man in the world”, described Twitter as a “pacifier” for President Trump and referred to Fox News as a “propaganda channel.”
Ahead of Saturday’s anti-gun, liberal media-supported March for Our Lives, Friday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom showed just how far left most of the network lies on the spectrum. “Fake news hypocrite” host Brooke Baldwin openly tag-teamed with the Michael Bloomberg-funded, pro-gun control Everytown for Gun Safety for over 14 minutes of discussion with families who’ve lost loved ones to gun violence but now demand gun control.
