After it was revealed last month that the anonymous “whistleblower” worked for 2020 candidate Joe Biden when he was vice president, ABC squashed the important story calling it a “smear campaign” put out by President Trump. This morning, the media continued trying to protect the whistleblower’s partisan identity, by attacking Republican calls for transparency. On CNN Tuesday morning, a panel trashed Sen. Rand Paul’s “deeply deceptive and underhanded” demand that the media do their job and publicly identify the whistleblower who’s complaint launched this whole impeachment inquiry.
The liberal media will NEVER let Donald Trump have a win. The elimination of ISIS founder Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi should have been cause for celebration for every American, but liberal journalists discovered reasons to whine about it. This past month also saw lefty hosts mourn the loss of Democratic “rising star” Katie Hill. The following are some of the worst takes from liberal hosts and reporters over the past month.
On CNN’s New Day Friday, co-hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Avlon brought on former Clinton White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart to praise how his former boss behaved during his impeachment process, as compared to President Trump. The liberal journalists also griped that Republicans were too partisan to get on board with impeachment, something that could’ve been said about the liberal media in the ‘90s.
On Thursday's New Day, CNN analysts Jeffrey Toobin and Bianna Golodryga went negative on Republican members of Congress who decided to protest the House Democrats' secluded investigation of President Donald Trump over the Ukraine issue. Legal analyst Toobin declared that they looked like "such jerks," and global affairs analyst Golodryga dismissed House Republicans as a "bunch of white men."
CNN journalists are still expressing remorse over how they covered the 2016 election, particularly as it relates to Clinton scandals. Despite giving an overwhelming amount of negative coverage to Trump, CNN’s chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin complained on Monday's New Day, they shouldn’t have given any attention to the Clinton private email server, calling it a “big nothing” that cost Clinton the election.
CNN's chyron [see below, echoed by host John Berman at the end of the clip] makes the liberal network's conclusion clear: the latest revelations about Ukraine are "damning" for President Trump. And when Alisyn Camerota interviewed CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin this morning, she was toeing the CNN party line, suggesting that President Trump's actions constituted "bribery." But for whatever reason, Toobin declined to go with CNN's damning flow, repeatedly saying that he saw no "criminality" in Trump's actions. That said, Toobin did suggest that Trump had committed an impeachable abuse of power.
The release of the transcript of the much talked about phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Wednesday has led to a flurry of hot takes from the media about what exactly went on between the two presidents and the state of impeachment. CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin joined At This Hour host Kate Bolduan to discuss the transcripts, his English speaking skills, and why he believes that there was a quid pro quo.
Shortly after prosecutors recommended charges for former FBI Deputy Director-turned-CNN contributor Andrew McCabe for lying to investigators, his colleague, CNN Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, rushed to his defense during an appearance on CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin Thursday. While dismissing the seriousness of the charges against McCabe, Toobin also attempted to portray him as the victim of a “vindictive crusade” orchestrated by the Trump administration.
During a brief break in Wednesday afternoon’s House Intelligence Committee hearing with former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, CNN again did its best to keep the faith for their boss Jeffrey Zucker and fellow lefties amidst their permanent impeachment campaign, hailing the hearing as part of a “Watergate roadmap” to begin ridding America of President Trump.
All kinds of Democrats said it, so why not their allies in the media? I’m speaking here of the media chorus that insisted — insisted — that what President Trump, in an Oval Office address to the nation in January called a “humanitarian crisis” at the border — was in fact nothing more than a “manufactured crisis.”
On Thursday morning, CNN Newsroom dedicated nearly the entire hour to discussing two recent Supreme Court decisions on the census and on a gerrymandering case. The panel, hosted by CNN anchor Poppy Harlow, used that time to bash Chief Justice John Roberts and the rest of the conservative majority.
Like the rest of the media, CNN heavily hyped a tragic image of a drowned father and daughter trying to cross the Rio Grande river to enter the country illegally. On CNN’s New Day Wednesday morning, host Alisyn Camerota and John Berman brought on legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin and the New York Times’ Maggie Haberman, to pre-emptively condemn Trump for comments he hasn’t even made yet and bash him as responsible for the pair’s deaths.
