On New Day on Christmas morning, CNN’s Chris Cillizza dragged out his “Naughty or Nice List," for 2019, with predictable "naughty" verdict for Rudy Giuliani, and a more surprising "naughty" verdict for Hillary Clinton. Cillizza insisted "It's hard to argue that getting in a fight with Bernie Sanders and Tulsi Gabbard if you're Hillary Clinton is beneficial to helping Democrats win in 2020, which is her stated goal."
There were many news outlets and people hyping the validity of the FISA warrant on Carter Page based on the now-officially-discredited Christopher Steele dossier. However, few defended that FISA warrant with more fervor than CNN's Chris Cillizza as he lectured President Donald Trump how wrong, wrong, WRONG he was for daring to cast aspersions on that FISA warrant.
With the public testimony portion of the House impeachment proceedings concluded, Democrats have discovered they have a problem: the public hearings did nothing to increase support for impeachment. On Tuesday's CNN Newsroom, CNN politics reporter Chris Cillizza joined co-host Jim Sciutto to ponder why this is and concluded that it isn't because the lack of overwhelming evidence, but rather due to the fact that the holiday season is upon us.
In a 60 Minutes interview, Joe Biden attacks Jared Kushner's lack of "credentials" to negotiate Middle East peace, saying he knows "nothing about it." CNN's reaction was essentially to say: you go, Joe! On this morning's New Day, Chris Cillizza twice called Biden's criticism "valid." Even that wasn't enough for Alisyn Camerota, who said: "it’s not only valid. When you hear it coming out of Joe Biden’s mouth, somehow it sounds even more shocking."
Illustrating why they’re the opposition party and are focused on pleasing the Adam Schiffs of the world by helping to overthrow the Trump administration, Thursday’s CNN Right Now was in an apoplectic state following comments from “lying” Vice President Mike Pence defending President Donald Trump’s July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky
CNN's Chris Cillizza is concerned that Beto O'Rourke, by being transparent about his desire for gun confiscation, is helping the Republicans.
We had Rasohomon the movie in which the same scene is presented several different ways depending on the point of view of the performers. And now we have the political version of Rashomon, in the form of the the Department of Justice Inspector General report, according to the CNN's overly imaginative Chris Cillizza, which was highly critical of former FBI Director James Comey. For Cillizza the facts clearly stated in the IG report really depends on the political viewpoint of whoever is reading it.
So who won the first Democrat debate in Detroit? Well, CNN's Chris Cillizza has a very surprising answer that will shock (and depress) many. So Mr. Cillizza, please pass along the envelope so we can open it. And the winner is.... DONALD TRUMP! Of course, he had a list of other winners (and losers) as well but that was the pick that stood out. He presented that surprising choice in his July 31 "Winners and losers from the first night of the CNN debate."
As NewsBusters has previously reported, CNN’s Chris Cillizza wrote an op-ed torching the idea of raising “unfounded questions about a presidential candidate’s health.” As Fox News host Laura Ingraham pointed out, CNN is the last news organization that should be lecturing anybody about raising "unfounded questions” about the health of our leaders.
On Monday night, Chris Cillizza, CNN’s editor-at-large and political reporter, penned an article entitled “Fox News crosses the line on Joe Biden.” All sense of self-awareness was lost on Cillizza as he spouted off about how Fox News was somewhere “in the gray area between journalism and activism.” It seems that he has never watched any of the shows on his network, or even read any of his pieces for that matter.
Surprisingly, CNN journalists on Thursday did what the networks have largely not been interested in: They looked at Joe Biden’s poor performance in presidential campaigns and his plagiarism problems. CNN Politics Reporter Chris Cillizza dove into the 1988 scandal in which Biden appeared to directly lift from a British Labour politician named Neil Kinnock. Cillizza noted that the Democrat didn’t even make it into calendar year 1988 before being forced to drop out. He explained, “[Biden] gives a speech that is very similar to a speech that a British Labour politician named Neal Kinnock and it leads to his demise.”
In stark contrast to most of his colleagues at CNN and in the mainstream media in general, Chris Cillizza, sees the Mueller Report as "very good news" for Donald Trump.
