Remember, folks, CNN wants you to think that CNN Tonight’s Don Lemon is merely a “CNN anchor” and an objective journalist instead of a left-wing pundit. Keep that in mind as, while opening Wednesday’s show, he gloated about how the President’s suffering a “losing streak” to the point that he put on an “embarrassing” performance in the Rose Garden.
In the recent aftermath of the trial in which former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor was convicted of killing an unarmed white woman, Justine Damond, after she called 9-1-1 in July 2017 to report a possible crime, CNN showed its double standard in attention given to alleged police misconduct based on the race of the victim.
Opening Wednesday's CNN Tonight, the horribly biased Don Lemon pondered: “Why this President loves to surround himself with strong men, with dictators?” Naturally, Lemon proceeded to criticize Trump for meeting with dictators, apparently forgetting that President Obama attended a baseball game with Cuban dictator Raul Castro while administration officials had numerous meetings with Iranians. Lemon went further by saying that President Trump wants to “follow their lead” by acting like a king.
Watch cable “news” these days, and you’ll surely see talking heads parroting the Democratic line that the Trump Administration’s noncompliance with House Committee subpoenas amounts to a constitutional crisis. While a small handful of analysts and guest legal scholars disagree, TV hosts continue to push the idea uncritically, with some even urging the alleged crisis be used as grounds for impeachment.
CNN hosts and guests reacted with glee when The New York Times published tidbits about President Trump’s tax returns from 1985 to 1994. CNN Tonight host Don Lemon branded the President “our con man in chief” while The Art of the Deal co-author Tony Schwartz slammed him as a “sociopath.”
Following the GLAAD Media L.A. awards show in March, the gay entertainment lobby hosted another evening in New York City to ensure that several other of the culture’s most putrid influencers wouldn’t go without their LGBTQ advocacy trophies.
Since the redacted Mueller report was released two weeks ago, TV journalists have been among the biggest advocates for impeaching President Trump. Yet curiously during the late 1990s, journalists were among the loudest voices against impeaching then-President Clinton.
Just how extreme do the 2020 Democrat presidential candidates have to be to shock even CNN anchors? So extreme that they either support voting rights for convicted terrorists such as the Boston bomber as Bernie Sanders endorsed or willing to have a "conversation" about it as Kamala Harris suggested before changing her mind.
On Wednesday's Cuomo Prime Time, during a discussion of a study finding Democrats who use Twitter are further to the left than average Democrats, CNN host Chris Cuomo admitted that "the media vibes so much off Twitter," tacitly admitting that the far left, or "progressives," have substantial influence over what the dominant media give air to. He even suggested that journalists use sources from Twitter who may not even be who they pretend to be.
CNN really wants you to take them seriously as a news organization, but it’s infinitely more difficult when they keep on inviting proven fake news anchors such as Dan Rather to opine on the day’s news like they did on Tuesday’s CNN Tonight. Host Don Lemon again thought it was worth inviting on “Mr. Rather” to bash the President as a liar and demand more transparency from the Justice Department concerning the Mueller report. And no, you can’t make this stuff up.
CNN has been hosting a series of town hall events for 2020 Democrats and it was New Jersey Senator Cory Booker’s turn Wednesday night. He received a very friendly welcome from CNN host Don Lemon, who gossiped with him about his personal life and was even caught congratulating him on a hot mic, as the network cut to commercial.
Attorney General William Barr's inclusion of the phrase “does not exonerate” in his summary of the Mueller report has become a much-needed security blanket for liberal journalists. For the past 24 hours, CNN analysts, commentators, correspondents, and hosts have clung to the phrase, repeating it ad nauseam in a vain attempt to reassure themselves that maybe — just maybe — President Trump might still be found guilty of obstruction of justice.
