CNN -- the network that portrays itself as the bulwark for freedom of the press -- explicitly took the side of a politician railing against a journalist. Because the politician was liberal, and the journalist works for a conservative-owned set of TV stations. The words "Jim Acosta" never crossed their lips.
With impeachment frenzy moves from the House Intelligence Committee to the Judiciary Committee, the media has a whole new list of Republicans they can attack in ways that they would never attack a Democrat. On CNN's Monday edition of Inside Politics Ranking Member Doug Collins was the latest Republican to find himself under attack, this time from Dana Bash who called him "rabid."
Womp. Womp. Chris Cuomo has a law degree, right? What’s that rule about not asking questions you don’t know the answer to? The award for CNN’s most cringe worthy moment (as of all day Wednesday) goes to none other Cuomo after he tried to prove the case against Donald Trump.
In between the two impeachment hearings on Tuesday, the CNN panelists almost universally (with the exception of Scott Jennings) tore into Republicans as offering “ineffective,” “offensive,” and “unconvincing” arguments amounting to a “cherry picking...side show” that dared to criticize Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman.
During the first break in Friday’s impeachment hearing featuring longtime U.S. Foreign Service official Marie Yovanovitch, CNN rolled out Obama-like fluff and praise for “credible,” “devastating,” and “truly powerful” testimony by someone with “ice in her veins” and “a spine of steel” fighting a “sexist” President.
The Washington Free Beacon’s Andrew Kugle released Friday morning the site’s latest indispensable SUPERcut. This time, the topic centered around the not surprising but nonetheless horribly biased double standard between when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wagged a finger toward President Donald Trump versus when then-Governor Jan Brewer (R-AZ) did so to Barack Obama in January 2012.
After thinking that having a seven-hour-long town hall about climate change was a great idea, CNN returned Thursday night with a four-and-a-half hour town hall partnering with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) about LGBTQ issues. Rampant protests calling attention to black transwomen, Chris Cuomo joking about preferred pronouns, and flat-out abuse with transgender elementary-age children were just a few of the things that transpired.
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
During a special two-hour edition of The Lead Friday titled “The White House in Crisis,” host Jake Tapper and the panel repeatedly compared President Trump to former President Richard Nixon as they focused on the impeachment drama that has engulfed Washington and the media. While they spent most of the segment trying to draw similarities between the two men, the panel also noted a few differences in the situations faced by the current and former President. For instance, Tapper complained that unlike Nixon, President Trump has Fox News and conservative political websites to carry his water for him.
Immediately following a Tuesday address by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announcing Democrats were moving forward with the impeachment process against President Trump, CNN praised it as a truly “historic” moment. They even went so far as to reassure their tiny audience that the Speaker understood the “utmost gravity” of the situation the country was in, and to not get discouraged by the “circus-like atmosphere” that was to come.
Like an adolescent seeking attention, Beto O'Rourke, desperate for any hook to hoist his pitiful polling position, has resorted to puerile vulgarity. O'Rourke has glommed onto the issue of mass shootings as his last, best shot to salvage his drain-circling candidacy. O'Rourke was a guest on CNN's "State of the Union" this morning. Guest host Dana Bash began by playing a clip in which O'Rourke, addressing a group yesterday regarding the shootings in Texas, called the situation "f---ed up." CNN bleeped out the vulgarity. But when Bash invited O'Rourke to comment on the situation, he again spoke of it being "f----ed up," and this time, CNN didn't bleep it.
Despite not having a firm, official count of those injured, the number of gunmen, the types of weapons used, or how the incident started in north Philadelphia, CNN’s The Situation Room engaged Wednesday in truly despicable behavior, using this attack on police officers to promote the need for gun control. They added that such incidents feel like the “new normal” and thus operating on emotion, not facts.
