CNN rarely criticizes Democrats so it was an anomaly when Thursday morning’s New Day panel blasted Sen. Chuck Schumer’s threat against two conservative Supreme Court justices yesterday, “wrong and inappropriate.” Co-host John Berman spoke with CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin about both Schumer threatening conservative justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch yesterday at a pro-abortion rally outside the Supreme Court, as well as Chief Justice John Roberts later rebuking him.
On Monday's The Situation Room, liberal CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin went over the top into hyperbole by claiming that President Donald Trump's dismissal of both Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman and his brother from their jobs at the White House amounted to "North Korean-style punishment of the whole family." They were executed?
As the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump drew to a close, the liberal media’s interest gave way to disappointment. Television journalists gorged themselves on sour grapes, complaining at length that trial was “a sham,” the vote was “rigged,” and the outcome meant nothing aside from confirming the “guilt” of Senate Republicans.
Picking up from Nick Fondacaro’s item on some of CNN’s initial reactions to the Senate trial coming to an end Wednesday afternoon, the Jeffrey Zucker-led circus continued into The Situation Room. Most notably, Fake News Jim hailing Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) and seven panelists ganging up on former Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) over, well, how one could act on principle and not want to remove President Trump.
With rare exceptions, the litany of liberal journalists, lefty analysts, and former Obama officials have free rein on CNN to pontificate without pushback. Unfortunately for legal analysts Preet Bharara and Jeffrey Toobin on Friday after the Senate impeachment trial’s witness vote, senior political commentator and former Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) was on set to push back after they called the vote “an absolute travesty,” “a sham,” “a shame” and a departure from “common sense.”
Liberal reporters and hosts lionized lead Democratic House Manager Adam Schiff for his “dazzling” “impassioned” “brilliant” performance as he was compared to rock stars like Prince and Bruce Springsteen. However, Donald Trump’s Republican defenders were slimed as “shameless,” lazy cowards who live in “terror” of the President.
In contrast to spending last week as state-run TV for the House impeachment managers, CNN flipped the script Monday afternoon to express predictable anger at President Trump’s “insulting” legal team living “on a different planet than the rest of us” that included a supposedly ineffective and “mind-boggling” case from Ken Starr.
Despite the fact that the leading 2020 Democrats are white, CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin attacked President Trump’s legal team for the Senate impeachment trial as “White House and white people” reflecting “the diversity of the two parties” compared to the House impeachment managers. Along with knocking the Trump lawyers as “not spell-binding,” “wandering in the wastelands,” and “weak,” Toobin also engaged in sexism by wondering if the women on team Trump will be “allowed to” speak.
Friday, CNN media correspondent and self-appointed defender of the free press Brian Stelter joined the network's pre-game panel discussion to talk the latest impeachment developments and to applaud Sen. Chuck Schumer for going after Fox News.
The liberal hacks at CNN were like kids on Christmas morning during Wednesday’s first break in the Senate impeachment trial, offering themselves up not as journalists but valentines for lead House Impeachment Manager Adam Schiff (D-CA), calling his presentation “coherent,” “cohesive,” “dazzling,” “forceful,” “inspiring,” “powerful,” and “remarkable.” In other words, for those of us out there that are single, we can only hope and pray to find someone who speaks to us the way CNN talks about their dearly beloved Schiff.
Having all received their marching orders from Dear Leader Jeffrey Zucker, CNN’s panel of so-called analysts and journalists sang the praises of pal and lead House Impeachment Manager Adam Schiff (D-CA) late Tuesday afternoon as an “effective orator” who produced “a pretty compelling story” with “facts” that, in their minds, put the White House to shame.
On Monday's Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN, conservative contributor Rick Santorum was outnumbered on a panel by liberals 5-1 as the group discussed the planned rules for President Donald Trump's impeachment trial in the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate. CNN analysts used words like "farce," "joke," and "atrocity" to complain about the rules.
