Despite not having a firm, official count of those injured, the number of gunmen, the types of weapons used, or how the incident started in north Philadelphia, CNN’s The Situation Room engaged Wednesday in truly despicable behavior, using this attack on police officers to promote the need for gun control. They added that such incidents feel like the “new normal” and thus operating on emotion, not facts.
It was all fun and games for Dems when Brett Kavanaugh was in the barrel. But now that allegations of sexual misconduct and racial insensitivity threaten to take down Virginia's Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General, and even—horror of horrors—elevate a Republican to the governorship, the Dem thrill is gone. CNN's New Day was surprisingly tough on the Dems this morning. Washington Post reporter Toluse Olorunnipa began by offering an unsparing assessment of the Dem predicament.
This is what the liberal media not being able to control the narrative and what you, the public, know and don’t know. On Thursday afternoon, CNN’s The Lead threw a full-blown conniption after President Donald Trump appeared and then took no questions at a last-minute White House Press Briefing alongside National Border Patrol Council members. Fill-in host Brianna Keilar immediately seemed bewildered, noting that the President was “pulling the spotlight back to the White House and to his point of view, but it's — he didn't even take questions.”
On Tuesday's The Situation Room, CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin likened President Donald Trump enforcing immigration law by separating families to both a bank robbery and to Hurricane Katrina as the group discussed HHS Secretary Alex Alzar defending the administration's progress in reuniting children with their parents. And CNN analyst Jackie Kucinich displayed the latest example of CNN conflating legal asylum seekers with illegal immigrants who cross the border illegally and seek asylum after they are apprehended as she complained about some asylum seekers being separated from their children.
During Friday’s edition of The Lead With Jake Tapper, CNN political analyst Paul Begala reacted to President Trump’s meeting with the “angel moms” (and dads) who have lost their children as a result of crimes committed by illegal immigrants. Begala accused President Trump of “politicizing” these tragedies and using their pain to “divide America.”
The panel on CNN's New Day Tuesday disucssed the criticisms behind the just-released Republican Party proposal to replace ObamaCare. In discussing the content -- or "the broccoli," as co-host Alisyn Camerota called it -- the panel's opposition, excluding Washington Examiner columnist David Drucker, ranged from labeling it as benefiting the wealthy to citing a new poll showing Americans' satisfaction with their health care.
News broke late Saturday night that North Korea launched a missile in a show of force during the Japanese Prime Minister’s visit to the United States. During a quickly put together media event PM Shinzo Abe spoke first to condemn the launch and was backed up with a brief statement of support from President Donald Trump. But that wasn’t enough for CNN’s Inside Politics, whose Nia-Malika Henderson proclaimed, “He has talked tough, I think Trump, on Twitter about North Korea, but when it got to his time to be that tough person that we've come to know, he just kind of whiffed I think in many ways.”
The latest liberal media freak-out about the Trump transition commenced on Friday morning upon the announcement of Republican Senator Jeff Sessions (Ala.) as President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for Attorney General and were led by CNN’s Carol Costello lashing out at the “controversial” Sessions who should “concern” Americans and linked him to hate crimes since the election.
On Monday's New Day on CNN, as a panel of regular CNN political analysts fretted that FBI Director James Comey has hurt Hillary Clinton's "momentum" and boosted Donald Trump with the recent resumption of activity in the Clinton email investigation, CNN political analyst David Gregory repeated his recent claim that Trump is speaking like a "tyrant" in calling for his opponent to be jailed and in questioning whether there might be "rigging" in the election. The CNN analyst also lamented the "damage" that has been done to Clinton, proclaiming that "it was so unfortunate that Comey allowed himself to be inserted into the political process."
Gregory -- the former host of NBC's Meet the Press -- also repeated a previous incorrect claim that Comey had found Clinton did not "commit a crime" in the mishandling of her State Department email. Gregory: "You have Mike Pence ... pronouncing during a rally last night, that she committed a crime, after the FBI said, 'Uh, no she didn't, and we looked at this.' So this is a team of Trump and Pence that has said, 'I will jail our opponent, we may not accept the election results, and we don't accept the rule of law.' This from a group who says they love America. I mean, whether you're a Republican or a Democrat, you should be really concerned about an FBI director impacting the election either way."
Appearing as a panel member on Monday's New Day, CNN's Jackie Kucinich -- also of the Daily Beast -- tried to brush off accusations that Bill Clinton not only committed sexual assaults against women, but that Hillary Clinton took part in threatening the women to keep them quiet, as the Daily Beast Washington bureau chief suggested that such claims come "straight out of conspiracy theory land." It was not until a couple of minutes later that co-host Alisyn Camerota pushed back slightly, recalling that several women who made sexual assault accusations were in the audience.
The press is going to extraordinary lengths to minimize the visibility of Hillary Clinton's damaging and disparaging February remarks at a fundraiser about how Bernie Sanders' supporters "are living in their parents’ basement," and how half of them don't know what ('just like Scandinavia') means" — stereotyping digs which don't survive even the most rudimentary efforts at fact-checking.
Appearing as a panel member on Thursday's New Day, CNN political analyst Jackie Kucinich -- also of the Daily Beast -- suggested that GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump's handling of the immigration issue yesterday amounted to "blowing himself up" or "killing himself" politically as she hinted that Hillary Clinton is better off ceding the spotlight to her Republican opponent.
