CNN had a midterms elections message on Wednesday for its own Chris Cillizza: Don't count your electoral chickens before they hatch. As recently as Tuesday, Cillizza was hailing that "all signs are pointing to a Democratic wave." The very next day, CNN had some rather sobering news for the giddy Cillizza in the form of their poll, Democrats' 2018 advantage is nearly gone.
In the Unintentionally Hilarious Department, CNN's Chris Cillizza tried to deconstruct President Trump's tweet on Wednesday about the latest Media Research Center study finding (once again) the tone of his evening-news coverage is 90 percent negative. Why, we in the media must convince the audience "that our most basic commitment is to getting stories right, not pushing some sort of imagined ideological agenda." Imagined?
Since Sunday night, the liberal media have been haranguing network affiliate owner Sinclair Broadcast Group (SBG) for a new “must-run” promo that warned against “biased and false news.” The two have slammed it as Trump-backed “state-run TV” on par with the former Soviet outlet Pravda that's “chilling,” frightening” and “a really embarrassing moment for journalism.” A NewsBusters study examined the two cable networks on April 2 found that CNN spent 76 minutes and 42 seconds while MSNBC hyperventilated for nearly twice as long at 134 minutes and 42 seconds.
Chris Cillizza is back with his entertaining silliness and this time it takes the form of desperately hoping that evidence of Russian collusion could be found despite a year of intensive investigation by a House Committee, a Senate Committee, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team, and a horde of liberal journalists. Yet despite no such evidence having been found after all this time, Cillizza continues to cling to his collusion hope that maybe, somehow, his dream will come true in his March 14 column:
In stark contrast to his CNN colleague Erin Burnett who gave President Donald Trump glowing praise for his upcoming meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Chris Cillizza went on a late Thursday night rant bitterly writing off that summit as more likely to resemble a reality TV show. Cillizza set the tone of his petulant diatribe by unflatteringly describing the two leaders as being very similar:
In an epic self-awareness fail, several liberal commentators claim that Broward County police officers who remained outside as Nikolas Cruz massacred students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were "good guys with a gun." This, they believe, shows that a good guy with a gun doesn't always stop a bad guy with a gun. It apparently hasn't occurred to them that these officers who swore an oath to protect and serve weren't being "good guys."
Just how inappropriately political does a Democrat have to be to incur the wrath of even reliably liberal Chris Cillizza of CNN? About as self-serving as Florida Senator Bill Nelson who used Wednesday's CNN Town Hall meeting about the tragic Parkland, Florida shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to attack his likely campaign opponent later this year.
CNN spent nearly the entire day on Monday hammering President Trump for his response to the Rob Porter controversy. During the 3:00 p.m. ET hour, anchor Brooke Baldwin presented no exception to the anti-Trump hysteria. Baldwin brought on Amanda Carpenter, Chris Cillizza and Anushay Hossain to discuss the fallout of the President’s handling of the Porter situation.
Democrats have been slamming House Speaker Paul Ryan after he deleted a tweet touting an AP story, in which a school secretary explained that she got a nominal raise because of the GOP tax bill. Because the amount was so small, or “crumbs” as Nancy Pelosi would put it, Democrats bashed Ryan and Republicans for daring to celebrate Americans getting more money in their paychecks.
CNN, the network that takes itself so seriously that they create ad campaigns defending themselves as “truth-tellers,” and whose reporters self-righteously rant they have the “right” and “duty” to call President Trump a “racist,” further embarrassed themselves this week by having their editor-at-large re-enact the president’s non-existent “workout routine” and write a whole snarky article about it, Thursday.
On Thursday’s The Situation Room, CNN analysts and correspondents brought out the long knives for President Trump after his disturbing and startling comments about certain countries being “sh***holes,” using it to bludgeon home the notion that Trump is “racist” and “inject[ing] a lot of poison” into the immigration debate.
CNN political analyst April Ryan fangirled over the idea that Oprah Winfrey could run for president in 2020, on At This Hour With Kate Bolduan Monday morning. Ryan went on an irrational rant, gushing that the media mogul was both “every person” and a “rock star.”
