On his Sunday show on CNN, as Fareed Zakaria presided over a segment discussing the week's news on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only the left and the far left were included as liberal New York Times columnist Tom Friedman slammed President Donald Trump's Israel policy as "diplomatic pornography," and Palestinian activist Hanan Ashrawi claimed that all of Jerusalem is "occupied" and tried to downplay the culpability of Hamas in the violent Gaza protests and attacks on the Israeli border fence.
On Monday's New Day on CNN, during a discussion of the day's upcoming relocation of the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv to Israel's capital, Jerusalem, CNN host and plagiarist Fareed Zakaria repeatedly fretted over President Donald Trump not demanding that Israel make concessions to Palestinian Arabs in exchange for recognizing the Jewish state's capital.
Often while watching CNN, one can only just shake their head at the utter lack of self-awareness regarding many of their anti-Trump declarations. One such moment occurred during Tuesday’s edition of Anderson Cooper 360 when infamous plagiarist and CNN host Fareed Zakaria chastised President Trump, suggesting that no one believed what he said. And to add to the irony of the situation, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper agreed that it was a sorry state of affairs.
CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter invited on HLN’s S.E. Unfiltered host S.E. Cupp for an illuminating 22-minute podcast released Friday dealing with conservative distrust in the news media. It featured solid points by Cupp and complaints by Stelter that mistakes in the media have unfairly been “amplified by some right-wing outlets as if the entire press is culpable.”
On Sunday's Fareed Zakaria GPS show, the host peddled the long-discredited mythology that the Reagan and Bush 43 supply-side tax cuts caused annual budget deficits to explode. Zakaria interviewed former Treasury Secretary and Obama economic adviser Larry Summers and current Trump administration Council of Economic Advisers head Kevin Hassett, but he did so separately, thus teeing up Summers to go after Hassett harshly and personally.
Just when it seemed that the scandal surrounding Harvey Weinstein couldn't get more sordid, current and former aides and advisors of Hillary Clinton have rushed to her defense after Anthony Bourdain, a famous chef and host of his own program on the Cable News Network, defended girlfriend Asia Argento, one of several women accusing the Hollywood mogul of sexual harassment, assault and even rape.
Celebrity scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson appeared on CNN, Sunday, to lecture those he deemed too stupid to accept the linkage of climate change to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Proving he should stick to science on TV, deGrasse pompously botched history: “Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican president, signed into law in 1963 — a year when he had important things to be thinking about — the National Academy of Sciences.”
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, host Bill Maher; MSNBC contributor and historian Jon Meacham; and CNN host Fareed Zakaria all admitted that it is not necessarily "racist" for one to have concerns about whether immigrants are assimilating properly into American culture after Maher brought up Zakaria's recent article criticizing Democrats on the subject. After Zakaria made an argument similar to his recent commentary, Meacham -- a former Newsweek editor -- noted that assimilation by immigrants has always been a legitimate topic of concern before blaming Republicans for making it look "racist" to have such a debate.
Appearing as a guest in a pre-recorded interview for the Sunday, August 13, Fareed Zakaria GPS on CNN, far-left HBO comedian Bill Maher declared that he hopes there is a "crash" in the stock market so that it will hurt President Donald Trump's political support. A bit later, he also repeated a discredited myth parroted over and over again by the Left that Ronald Reagan began his 1980 presidential campaign in Philadelphia, Mississippi, as a "dog whistle" to appeal to racism.
Former Vice President-turned-climate change activist Al Gore was given another opportunity by CNN this weekend to shame skeptics of his climate change propaganda as backwards bigots. Just last week when the network hosted a town hall with Gore, where he compared the fight against climate change to a matter of “right and wrong,” much like the Civil Rights Movement.
On Wednesday, two GOP Senators, with help from the White House, rolled out a new legal immigration proposal that put emphasis on certain merits to receive a green card. And as the Media Research Center reported later that night, the liberal media were up in arms. But CNN’s Fareed Zakaria took a different approach during his show Global Public Square on Sunday. According to him, the Democrats were the ones “out of touch” with the feelings of many Americans.
The left's inability to accept Hillary Clinton's defeat has led them to fabricate the story that much of America is dumb, racist, homophobic, and sexist. As Fareed Zakaria of CNN put it: "A real sense of cultural alienation that the older white, non-college educated Americans have the sense that their country is changing because of immigrants. Because maybe blacks are getting -- rising up to a kind of central place in society. Because of, you know, gays being afforded equal rights. Because of, frankly, a lot of working women."
