When the two leaders were just a couple of hours from meeting each other, the liberal media were grasping at straws to find some way to attack and discredit the summit. On Monday’s (U.S. time) edition of CNN’s OutFront, host Erin Burnett was so desperate to find something to complain and fear monger about she actually suggested Trump was too jetlagged to be effective. It was something her panel pounced on to sew concern about the President’s ability to strike a deal.
On Monday's Erin Burnett Outfront, and again on Tuesday's New Day, CNN ran a full report which devoted more than twice as much time to the more liberal candidate, Stacey Abrams, who is competing in Georgia's Democratic primary for governor without mentioning the GOP candidates at all. Additionally, the report left the impression that Abrams was not allowed to attend an event at the governor's mansion in 1991 because she was black even though, in fact, she was allowed into the event after the guest list was checked.
CNN’s Erin Burnett conducted a sacchaine interview with Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf on Monday’s Erin Burnett OutFront, in which she sympathized with the Mayor for being “picked on” by the President. Schaaf made headlines in March when she posted a Tweet warning illegal aliens about an upcoming ICE raid in the Bay Area. To her credit, Burnett framed Schaaf’s actions as such while introducing her; however, she went on permit her to repeatedly twist facts, while offering virtually no pushback in response.
After a trio of CNN political analysts pestered Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about a controversial Trump tweet on immigration during Monday’s White House press briefing, the speculation about the President’s intent continued on CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront later that evening. And, of course, the only implications they could think of involved the President being a staunch racist. “And pretty much all of them are pretty racist. In fact, all of them are pretty racist,” declared Burnett.
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).
