Television journalists these days sound so similar to Democrats on impeachment that it's nearly impossible to tell them apart. Weeks before the impeachment inquiry was even announced, talking heads were passing off Democratic talking points as objective information about the President's alleged wrongdoing.
Appearing on Monday's Anderson Cooper 360, Watergate reporter and CNN political analyst Carl Bernstein offered his trademark hyperbolic analysis about the state of the union under President Trump. Weighing in on the emergence of a second whistle-blower pertaining to Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian President, Bernstein slammed the U.S. President as “fundamentally corrupt” and “increasingly unstable.”
Forever cashing in on his Watergate fame and still hailed on TV as a "Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist" (46 years ago), CNN political analyst Carl Bernstein was called in for Tuesday's CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin to analyze the ouster of National Security Adviser John Bolton and launch his typically hyperbolic analysis that "we don't have functional governance" in America, thanks to Presidet Trump.
On CNN this morning, in the pre-game of Robert Mueller's testimony today, John Dean, Mr. Cancer-on-the-Presidency, told John Berman: "The [Mueller] report indicates there was collusion, contrary to Mr. Trump's statement." Of course, the single most noteworthy finding emerging from the Mueller report, as even NPR had to admit, was that there was not any collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.
Bernstein, a master of hyperbole that NewsBusters reporting can attest too, appeared on Sunday’s so-called “Reliable Sources” where he, in all seriousness, suggested that “this cold civil war predates Donald Trump. And Donald Trump understood that we are in a cold civil war in this country. And he has exploited it and brought this cold civil war almost to the point of ignition through his actions and his words, which are unprecedented in terms of presidential conduct.”
For the final guest of CNN’s so-called “Reliable Sources”, host and media janitor Brian Stelter brought on CNN political analyst and Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein to sing the media’s praises and rail against the President. According to Bernstein’s rambling, Trump was “the most authoritarian president in our history” who got his “Roy Cohn” in Attorney General William Barr, and only something “miraculous” could save him.
With The Washington Post publishing select excerpts of a letter Special Counsel Robert Mueller purportedly sent to Attorney General William Barr expressing some level of displeasure with the original four-page memo to Congress, CNN was off to the races on Tuesday night with all sorts of speculation and doom and gloom soothsaying at it pertained to the fate of the AG.
There was collusion, so much collusion we’re swimming it! That’s according to bombastic CNN host Chris Cuomo and washed up Watergate-era reporter Carl Bernstein. Not only was there “a ton of collusion” but if you didn’t realize that after reading the Mueller Report, you’re just not that smart and too political, they declared late Thursday afternoon.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson devoted a large portion of his opening monologue Monday night to the fallout from the release of the Mueller report, specifically focusing on CNN’s coverage of the Trump-Russia probe. Carlson accused CNN head Jeff Zucker of intentionally misleading his audience before going through some examples of CNN’s “long history of not getting the facts first” in a dig at the network’s motto.
Let the record show that the 2019 RTDN First Amendment awards dinner held on Wednesday served as a new example of how there's no professional that worships itself more than national and political journalists and their arrogance and egos will never not be disgusting. This unhealthy fixation was best illustrated with the dinner’s final award, which was presented to CNN with speeches by political analyst Carl Bernstein and CNN head Jeffrey Zucker that painted the press in such self-aggrandizing terms the one would think they’re the remaining members of the Avengers taking on Thanos.
CNN’s Brian Stelter on Sunday complained — with a straight face — that some in the news media were not spending enough time covering the Russian collusion narrative. The Reliable Sources host was frustrated that ABC’s Good Morning America had had the temerity to start both its Saturday and Sunday shows talking about other topics, such as weather: “How can a morning show not lead with this drama?”
CNN’s Reliable Sources used to be a show about journalism and media ethics. In the Trump era, it’s all about Trump and conservatives ruining America. After weighing in on the “embarrassing” government shutdown, it did not take long for the discussion to veer off into a debate about whether or not the Mattis resignation letter proves that President Trump is “unfit to be the President.”
