The second portion of CNN’s town hall/mob promoting gun control on Wednesday night featured Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch and, on cue, it was brutally hostile towards Loesch. Along with repeatedly being heckled by students and other attendees as a “murderer,” Stoneman Douglas student Emma Gonzalez questioned Loesch’s motherhood.
Wednesday's CNN town hall to promote gun control and gun grabbing was off the rails from the very start. So-called moderator Jake Tapper sat back as the wild crowd targeted Republican Senator Marco Rubio with boos and jeers for basically just being there. The wildest moment allowed by Tapper was when Parkland, Florida student Cameron Kasky smeared the Senator by equating him to the shooter that killed 17 of his classmates.
Always prone to use ostentatious rhetoric, CNN contributor Carl Bernstein unloaded Friday afternoon on the release of the Republican House Intelligence Committee memo, telling Jake Tapper that “we may well have not seen such dark days for American democracy and its institutions” to the point that we are “at a crossroads” because of the “demagogic authoritarian” President Trump.
It didn’t take long for CNN to crank the anti-Trump ridiculousness up to 11 after President Trump’s State of the Union address. Just 19 seconds after Trump concluded his speech CNN host Jake Tapper, and later Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger, whined about how Trump used patriotic language that would inevitably “turn off” liberal Democrats. But their complaints weren’t directed at the melodramatic Democrats but at Trump himself.
To demonstrate just how far down the drain their standards for news and analysis were, CNN spent a couple minutes before the State of the Union Tuesday wondering if First Lady Melania Trump’s outfit was designed to protest the President, her own husband.
“Let me just say what I said last night: that plan is a campaign to make America white again."
That was House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's deranged analysis of President Donald Trump's new DACA proposal. When Jake Tapper asked West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin (D) for his reaction to Pelosi's wild statement on today's State of the Union on CNN, he seemed taken aback by Manchin's answer. Take a look at the following video and see if you can measure Tapper's level of disappointment...or was it sadness?
In a remarkably oblivious segment during CNN’s The Lead on Thursday, host Jake Tapper and his panel ripped into Congressional Republicans for rushing to use the missing FBI text messages and ‘selective leaks’ to claim conspiracy. The exchange was mind-boggling since CNN conducted its brand of journalism in a similar fashion. It actually allowed them to win three out of their four trophies in President Trump’s Fake News Awards.
When President Trump announced them in early January, many in the liberal media thought that the Fake News Awards were a bluff and he wouldn’t go through with them. But after having previously been postponed, Trump unveiled the “winners” Wednesday night. Out of the top 10 instances of fake news, CNN was sloppy enough to win four awards with the top spot going to The New York Times. The awards twice noted a Media Research Center study that showed 90 percent of the media’s coverage of him was negative.
In the contest for Most Offended News Network after President Trump reportedly referred to African nations as “s***hole” countries, CNN should win hands down. NewsBusters staff combed through CNN transcripts on Nexis for the S-hole word in the 24 hours of January 12 – the first full day after The Washington Post reported the controversy – and found CNN staffers and CNN guests uncorked the profanity 195 times in one day. Compare that to Fox News Channel. Their curse count was zero. FNC told staff and guests not to say it.
CNN anchor Jake Tapper appeared on the show Late Night with liberal NBC talk-show Seth Meyers in the early hours of Friday morning. Unsurprisingly, Meyers gave Tapper a kind of victory lap for the contentious Sunday talking-over-each-other interview with Trump aide Stephen Miller. Tapper oddly suggested that if he called Trump something insulting like a “flunky,” that Seth Meyers would be disappointed and wished he hadn’t done that. Excuse me? Seth Meyers, who called Anthony Scaramucci a “human pinky ring”? And compared Trump to a serial killer?
On Tuesday, President Trump tweeted he would be “announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR” on Monday “in various categories from the Fake News Media." There’s bias, but then there’s sheer incompetence. The biggest media obsession last year was the search for evidence of Trump’s supposed collusion with Russia, in the process, liberal reporters in 2017 repeatedly stumbled into error and were forced to make embarrassing corrections. This post presented eight possible choices that the President could consider.
In a Thursday vote that was more for show than for substance, the United Nations General Assembly in a vote of 128-9 (with 34 abstentions) condemned the United States for rightfully declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. And during NBC Nightly News, the network flaunted the decision by the elitist body, touted their rebuke of the U.S., and described the U.S. as somehow acting like a “bully.” All while ignoring the U.N.’s history of targeted anti-Semitism.
