After Tuesday’s heated press conference over Charlottesville, the media has been in a renewed frenzy over Trump’s comments. Over at CNN, the outrage seemed to be at its worst, with hosts sounding just like their radically left-wing guests. On the 7am hour of CNN’s New Day, fill-in host Poppy Harlow actually asked liberal reporter and CNN analyst April Ryan if Trump's slogan “Make America Great Again” was referring to the days when the KKK terrorized the South.
Monday’s firing of recently hired White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci along with the replacement of Reince Priebus with John Kelly as Chief of Staff has left the media in an uproar about the “chaos” in the White House. On CNN’s New Day Tuesday, political analyst and former host of NBC’s Meet the Press David Gregory argued that the firings and hirings undermined the integrity of the presidency. “Well I mean, I just think it’s been a joke,” Gregory scoffed.
On Wednesday morning, CNN political analyst David Gregory trashed those who dared to question the media’s hysterical coverage of the Trump administration. Unsurprisingly, he continued to practice his favorite past time of pushing false narratives. On CNN’s New Day, he at first went directly at the President: “you have the President of the United States demonstrably trying to shut down that investigation. Why? Calling it a hoax. Why?”
With President Trump visiting Israel Monday, the media have been pushing the narrative that President Obama was Israel’s protector, literally (see headlines below). On Tuesday, CNN political analyst David Gregory and global affairs analyst Tony Blinken were eager to assert that President Obama was Israel’s greatest ally in regard to security.
CNN political analyst David Gregory took after Fox News on Wednesday’s New Day, lecturing them to stop saying what CNN and others are doing is “activism over journalism.” This is the same David Gregory who brought his high-capacity magazine clip to the Meet the Press set. And it’s the same David Gregory that wouldn’t let any Republican bring up rape charges against Bill Clinton when he was an MSNBC host. Gregory didn’t want to talk about that for ten seconds.
But now, Gregory is insisting “It is a time of reckoning for Republicans, to try and get back on track here and get to the bottom of what the president did.”
CNN claims it’s right down the middle, somewhere between the left-wing MSNBC and the more conservative-friendly Fox News Channel. But an MRC study of an entire day of CNN’s coverage shows the network spent almost all of its time covering the Trump presidency, with a heavily skewed roster of anti-Trump guests and on-air commentators.
During a dramatically one-sided panel discussion in the 8 a.m. ET hour of CNN’s New Day on Monday, political analyst David Gregory wailed that the firing of FBI Director James Comey was “a crisis the President has created by abusing his power, by creating an atmosphere in which we don’t know who we can trust in the White House...”
All the media could talk about Tuesday night was how President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. As unfounded speculation about Trump’s assumed guilt swirled, CNN political commentator David Gregory was in a visible rage over the whole ordeal. At the end of the eight o’clock hour, he declared that the firing was a display Trump’s “disdain” for the rule of law. But what was on full display was Gregory’s disdain for the Trump administration
I oppose the push to remove "The Late Show" comedian Stephen Colbert from the air because of his obscene tirade against President Donald Trump. In fact, I wish the video of his boorish diatribe would go viral. The best remedy against the political left's ongoing crusade to remake America in its own vulgar image is maximum exposure of its irrationality.
On Wednesday's New Day, during a discussion of Hillary Clinton's recent interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour, CNN political analyst David Gregory implicated "hatred" of Hillary Clinton at the FBI as well as "misogyny" in Clinton's presidential loss as he called FBI director James Comey's behavior "horrendous." Amanpour also appeared later in the show and implicated misogyny, following up on her question to Clinton on the subject.
After facing a friendly interview from Christiane Amanpour Tuesday at an international women’s conference, Hillary Clinton had nothing to fear but more nice remarks from her friends at the “Clinton News Network.” While the network’s roundtable of analysts fawned over the “remarkable” interview Clinton gave, CNN’s David Chalian gave the gushiest remark of them all, calling it “the most authentic” and “astonishing” Clinton appearance he’d “ever seen.”
On Wednesday's New Day on CNN, viewers could see a contradictory message as CNN regulars repeatedly embellished the Sixth Congressional District of Georgia as being solidly Republican -- even though there were also a few times when CNN regulars conceded that Donald Trump only beat Hillary Clinton by about a point in the district. But the CNN regulars still kept going back to painting the district as solidly Republican, using the tags "deep red," "rock solid," "Republican stronghold," "really conservative red," "really ruby red Republican," and "deeply Republican" to refer either to the Sixth District or the state of Georgia in general.
