Less than an hour after CNN’s Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer conceded Thursday that “Democrats look like they’re in trouble,” the Erin Burnett OutFront panel lambasted CNN’s beloved 2020 Democrat and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for a question that many deemed over the line about the legitimacy of the Supreme Court and Chief Justice John Roberts.
A week after being roasted for tweeting a fake conversation between Republican senators, CNN political commentator and former Clinton White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart claimed Wednesday night during the Senate trial’s dinner break that an argument used by Trump legal team member Alan Dershowitz was “un-American” and akin to those used by “authoritarian people” to justify “genocide.”
During breaks in the trial action happening on the floor of the Senate Wednesday, Democratic senators would make their way to their friends in the liberal media to get some softball questions served their way. A common narrative CNN and MSNBC were trying to get the senators to agree to was a conspiracy theory that suggested Republicans were not taking the trial seriously, with many of them not even present in the chamber. Unfortunately for the media, things didn’t go the way they were expecting.
On Thursday's Erin Burnett Outfront, CNN host Erin Burnett tried to dismiss the "death to America" chants that Iran has been infamous for as just being a "trope" that is not "seriously meant" as she discussed President Donald Trump's Iran policy with Ohio Republican Congressman Mike Turner,
One of the worst tendencies of American media is boasting about how independent they are, and then granting the most obsequious access to our worst tyrannical enemies. CNN boss Jeff Zucker calls Fox News "state-run TV," then acts like state-run TV for our enemies in Iran. On Friday night, Erin Burnett threw softballs at Iran's representative to the UN that she would never toss at Trump administration officials.
Van Jones slams HIllary Clinton for suggesting that Democrat presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard is a Russian Asset. "She's playing a very dangerous game. Hillary Clinton, if you're concerned about this information and to spread disinformation, that is what just happened."
CNN on Tuesday night hammered the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates from the left, demanding to know exactly how they plan on “stopping” pro-life states who dare to pass laws restricting abortion. Co-debate moderator Erin Burnett also promoted the packing of the Supreme Court.
As is usually the case with CNN, hosts are reduced to no more than puppets in Jeffrey Zucker’s play, willfully reading from nearly identical scripts as they peddle their daily doses of venom for not only President Trump, but anyone who stands in the way of their far-left, anti-gun, pro-abortion, and pro-Green New Deal vision (to name a few policies). So for seven hours on Wednesday, CNN’s primetime hosts began each of the ten 2020 Democratic presidential “climate crisis” town halls by asserting that Hurricane Dorian exists because of climate change.
CNN’s 10 back-to-back “climate crisis” town halls with 2020 Democrats were every bit a sideshow one could expect them to be. But there a few moments, Wednesday night, that stood out as particularly off the rails. Between advocating for global abortions, $16 trillion in new government spending, and insidious proposals to manipulate what you eat, it had some people pointing out it was a gold mine for GOP campaign ads.
Are you a political campaigner having a tough time selling your expensive, socialistic plan? Just go on CNN, where (if you’re lucky) an anchor will tell you how you’re doing it wrong. That’s what happened when Democratic-socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders’ senior campaign advisor Jeff Weaver went on Erin Burnett Outfront on July 17.
At the news that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders would be leaving her post at the end of the month, CNN shamelessly spent their primetime hours that night giving her most bitter foe in the press free reign to bash her character. Both Erin Burnett and Don Lemon brought on April Ryan, who isn’t event CNN’s own White House correspondent, to slam Sanders one last time as “suffering from lie-abetes” and declaring her was the “worst press secretary” in the past three decades.
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.
