For some time, it’s been evident that much of the liberal media have come down with cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Wednesday’s CNN Tonight showcased how host Don Lemon has been grappling with it. Suffice to say, it’s not going well as he informed viewers that “[o]ur country is in the middle of an extreme crisis, a crisis that threatens our foundation, a crises that threatens the values we all hold — hold dear, a crisis created to blind us to the truth” caused by Trump.
Today’s journalists routinely assert that it is “extreme,” “dangerous,” and possibly even criminal for the White House – or anyone else, for that matter – to criticize an investigation into the President. But twenty years ago, Independent Counsel Ken Starr was savaged by the same liberal media during his investigation of then-President Bill Clinton. At that time, Starr was harangued as a “partisan” and “inept prosecutor,” and a “peeping Tom.”
One of CNN’s most blatant hypocrisies is their double standard when it comes slamming Fox News hosts for their relationships with President Trump. This criticism could be valid if those same CNN employees didn’t spend their free time palling around with those out to carve out their pound of flesh. The latest example of this was exposed via a late night tweet from a former aide to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) showing CNN host Don Lemon, among other journalists, having a grand old time with “creepy porn lawyer” Michael Avenatti.
Trump Derangement Syndrome can really take a toll on people. Unfortunately, that was evident on Monday’s CNN Tonight as CNN political analysts and White House Briefing Room rabble-rousers Brian Karem and April Ryan hijacked a segment meant to discuss First Lady Melania Trump’s surgery to whine about the President’s tweeting habits and his refusal to hold press conferences.
Given how CNN views Donald Trump as a “grave and existential threat” to the survival of a free press, one would think that the network would aggressively challenge Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti over his attempt to bully and threaten the conservative Daily Caller. Yet when Don Lemon talked to Avenatti on Monday, he only gently brought up the intimidating e-mail sent by the lawyer.
Between Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, the media have again shown they are more interested in news that portrays police officers as mistreating suspects than they are in updating viewers with information that counts in the cops' favor. After mostly ignoring Sacramento County's official autopsy of Stephon Clark that contradicts a private autopsy that claimed he was mostly shot by police in the back, all three broadcast networks pounced on a story this week about police officers confronting a black student at Yale University who fell asleep while studying in a common area who turned out to be doing nothing wrong.
As the headline indicated, it’s about time a former Obama official was called on the carpet. Thankfully, CNN political commentator and former George W. Bush special assistant Scott Jennings did that on Tuesday’s CNN Tonight, blasting former Obama National Security Council member-turned CNN national security analyst Samantha Vinograd over her bitterness surrounding President Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.
On Tuesday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of rapper Kanye West recently making a provocative suggestion that black slaves were partially to blame for their own enslavement, liberal CNN political commentator at one point hinted that wearing a pro-Donald Trump MAGA hate was worse than rappers pushing an "F the police" message. He also suggested that it was racist for conservatives to discuss the issue of "black-on-black-crime."
On Thursday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of rapper Kanye West being criticized for praising President Donald Trump, right-leaning CNN political commentator and anti-Trump Republican Tara Setymayer again took shots at black Trump supporters as she brought up the Diamond and Silk conservative duo and derided them as "political minstrels" and a "shuck and jive show."
On Wednesday's CNN Tonight, anchor Don Lemon hosted a segment to discuss the fact that rapper Kanye West has received criticism for praising President Donald Trump. The CNN host even alluded to West's history of accusing President George W. Bush of not caring about black Americans to then suggest that now West may not "care about black people."
Upon perusing CNN late Friday morning, the chest-thumping, sanctimonious news channel aired a new ad in its parody-laden yet irksome “Facts First” campaign featuring a mound of bananas while claiming there was a single, out-of-view apple. The ad served as CNN’s latest (and failed) attempt to convince viewers that it’s pro-truth when it’s actually anti-Trump and pro-Resistance.
On Tuesday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of whether conservative FNC host Sean Hannity should have divulged earlier that he has an association with Donald Trump attorney Michael Cohen, there seemed to be unanimous agreement that Fox News is "not news."
