The media have found themselves inflicted with another case of Trump Derangement Syndrome after President Trump unleashed a series of tweets pertaining to immigration and DACA. During Monday's edition of CNN's Erin Burnett OutFront, host Erin Burnett asked President Trump's former deputy campaign manager if there was "any way to interpret our country as being stolen when you are referring to immigrants coming from the south as anything other than racist."
On Saturday night, during special coverage of the anti-gun March for Our Lives rally on CNN, host Erin Burnett displayed a classic example of the media double standard on guns in which a guest who supports gun rights gets debated on the issue, but guests who support more control have their liberal views unchallenged or even further pressed from the left.
On Wednesday, CNN reported that their infamous anonymous sources were giving them hints at what questions Special Counsel Robert Mueller was planning the ask President Trump during a possible in-person interview. “Obviously the four buckets we now know about … the firing of Comey and Flynn, that statement on Air Force One, and that infamous meeting at Trump Tower,” stated CNN anchor Erin Burnett during OutFront. From there, she and her stacked liberal panel unleashed a flood of speculation.
Over the weekend, bitter also-ran Hillary Clinton traveled to India to complain about losing to Donald Trump again. The story broke on Monday, but the complaints apparently weren’t jarring enough to disturb the Democrats at the networks. On Tuesday, Washington Post political blogger Aaron Blake reported it as "incendiary” and “pretty remarkable.” Only Fox News agreed.
CNN, the alleged “facts first” network, made an absurd and egregious comparison last night on Twitter, demonizing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials as comparable to the Nazis. In a March 14 tweet, CNN touted their own report of a Jewish woman taking in illegal immigrants, “driven by thoughts of the Holocaust:”
It was quite a sight on the Thursday editions of CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront and MSNBC’s Hardball as liberal journalists heaped effusive praise on President Trump for his “remarkable,” “significant,” and “stunning” willingness to meet soon with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. All the while, each network’s former Obama administration officials experienced weapons-grade meltdowns.
At the Jeffrey Zucker-led CNN, they can be trusted to go all-out whenever they find a news story that they deem worth obsessing over. Whether it was the missing Malaysian plane or Sam Nunberg, CNN has proven itself incapable of covering more than one topic at a time. On Wednesday, CNN’s primetime programming showed that with over 149 minutes pushing the Trump scandal involving porn star Stormy Daniels and another 86 minutes on other Trump-related scandals.
On March 5th, former Trump campaign operative Sam Nunberg made the rounds on cable news, giving two interviews on MSNBC and three CNN in the afternoon and evening. Newsbusters examined all cable news shows that aired between 3:30 and 11:00 p.m. Eastern, starting after the daily White House press conference concluded. Not surprisingly, CNN came out ahead in this regard, dedicating 73.3 percent (230 minutes) of its total news coverage to Nunberg, compared to MSNBC's 56.7 percent (196 minutes).
The largest media spectacle on Monday, by far, was former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg’s rapid meltdown as he furiously jumped from cable news show to cable news show to taunt Special Counsel Robert Mueller for issuing him a subpoena. And in the midst of his whirlwind afternoon and evening, concerns from his friends began to surface questioning his mental state. It all came to a head on CNN’s OutFront where host Erin Burnett admitted that she could smell alcohol on his breath.
CNN’s organizational hypocrisy was on full display Wednesday night as host Erin Burnett kicked off OutFront by declaring that “Republicans are at it again” with their crazy conspiracy theories! Turns out, the alleged conspiracy theory was just a question raised by Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson in his Homeland Security Committee’s interim report on the Clinton e-mail scandal.
Early Thursday night, the White House released the parameters of an immigration plan being sent to Congress, which included legalizating 1.8 million illegal immigrants. However, this dramatic attempt at a compromise fell on deaf ears at CNN. From 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Eastern, CNN devoted an astonishing 11 times more coverage to the Trump-Russia probe, discrediting the Peter Strzok-Lisa Page scandal, and obsessing over porn star Stormy Daniels than the immigration plan.
With the latest sexual harassment news about MSNBC's Chris Matthews having to pay a $40,000 settlement to an assistant producer for Hardball in 1999, can anybody be really surprised? The reason is that Matthews over the years has a record of very strange behavior of a leering nature around women, much of it recorded for posterity. A couple of the more notable examples are presented below starting with the the uncomfortable 2007 incident in which Matthews asked Erin Burnett who was then the anchor of CNBC's Street Signs to lean in closer to the camera so he could get a better look at her.
