Wednesday’s New Day on CNN almost managed to close out with a lighthearted piece about the Westminster Dog Show – until the segment devolved into a Trump bash-fest in which correspondent Jeanne Moos compared and contrasted the President with a dog.
On Wednesday night, CNN and MSNBC still had plenty of energy left to not only blast the President’s State of the Union address from the night before, but also go gaga for every movement and every word espoused by liberals. In the latter case, CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront and MSNBC’s Hardball cheered House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s “Machiavellian genius” controlling the House and offering a snarky clap for the President that was “the clap...seen around the world.”
Whenever there’s an impasse in Washington, the liberal media always demand that Republicans “compromise” and work with Democrats. Of course, their definition of compromise is code for “just capitulate.” Now, in an effort to end the government shutdown and from talking with Border Patrol, President Trump has shifted positions on what the wall would look like and what it would be made out of. But CNN was not having Trump’s compromise and mocked him for it during Monday’s OutFront.
In a demonstration of just how seriously they take their assertion that they’re not “fake news”, CNN network ended Thursday night’s Erin Burnett OutFront with a report about how Donald Trump’s use of the term “witch hunt” to slam the Special Counsel’s investigation offended real witches around the globe. The segment was complete with fill-in host Kate Bolduan declaring at the top of the segment, “Witches of the world have a problem with President Trump!”
In a report that was somehow supposed to be comedy, CNN reporter Jeanne Moos ended Monday’s Erin Burnett OutFront by comparing President Trump to infamous mob bosses, both real and fictional. “When President Trump referred to his former attorney as a ‘rat’ for talking to the government, critics came scurrying,” she quipped, later mocking how the President “knows all the best words, mob words.”
After CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon professed their love for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Tuesday night, their colleague Erin Burnett ended Wednesday’s OutFront with another fawning tribute to Pelosi’s “star power”. This one was filed by comedic (?) reporter Jeanne Moos. The smarmy report boasted about Pelosi’s new-found fame on social media and actually tried to make Cuomo and Lemon’s ridiculous “Nanchuck” nickname something that stuck.
In an age where the media has come under unprecedented levels of scrutiny for slanted reporting and bias, CNN has chosen to stick to the issues. Particularly, that of a video where President Trump politely asks for a Coca-Cola.
On the eve of America’s Birthday, CNN played up a Gallup poll that suggested only 47 percent of Americans were “extremely proud” to be an American during Tuesday's edition of OutFront. To get their own unofficial tally on the mood of the country, the network found it amusing to send out reporter Jeanne Moos to interview New Yorkers about their level of patriotism. Of course, they highlighted the bitter anti-Trump liberals of the city.
Debate raged in the United Kingdom’s Parliament Monday over whether or not President Donald Trump should be extended the warm welcome of a full state visit. As insults targeting Trump flew back and forth, CNN seemed to get a good laugh out of it all. “Insults flying over Trump's invitation for a formal state visit to the UK,” hyped Erin Burnett during her show OutFront, “One Member of Parliament today likening it to quote, “pimping out the queen.’” All while the on-screen headline read “Can God Save the Queen…from Trump?”
At the end of Tuesday's Erin Burnett Outfront on CNN, the show ran a full two-minute report by correspondent Jeanne Moos which took parting shots and mocked General Michael Flynn over his resignation as the Trump administration National Security Advisor. Detailing social media users who have piled on jokes about how soon he was forced out, Moos noted that one of Kim Kardashian's short-lived marriages lasted longer, and included a snide tweet from someone citing fungal infections.
On Monday's CNN Newsroom, Jeanne Moos zeroed in on the largely-negative response to a pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC's music video-style ad, which features a country music song about the former First Lady. Moos wasted little time before reporting that "at least one website warns, 'This pro-Hillary cowboy anthem will make your ears bleed.'"
As NewsBusters has reported, CNN's Carol Costello is very defensive about ObamaCare.
On Wednesday, she took exception to a pre-Thanksgiving Day joke special correspondent Jeanne Moos made about Healthcare.gov being a turkey (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
