Ahead of Sunday’s new episode of the CNN series The 2000's (which is airing maybe a few years too soon), let’s take a look back at a few pathetic moments from the first episode, which focused on the decade’s movies and television. The CNN documentary blasted Fox News and MSNBC for having corroded the news discourse and heaped a torrent of praise on far-left comedians and former Comedy Central hosts Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart.
The liberal news media suffered a cataclysmic meltdown on June 27 over Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement, with the resulting damage likely visible from space. Two weeks later, following President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, viewers were treated to a second round of hysterics.
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.
On Tuesday's New Day on CNN, during discussions of President Donald Trump selecting Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court, CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin again fretted over the possibility that the Court will overturn Roe v. Wade and allow discrimination against homosexuals.
Amid CNN’s analysis of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Monday night, their senior legal analyst, Jeffrey Toobin requested that the panel think about how Obama SCOTUS nominee Merrick Garland and Hillary Clinton must feel watching the announcement.
On Monday’s edition of New Day there were several segments discussing President’s Trump’s plans to announce his pick for the Supreme Court. In one such segment, CNN Chief Legal Analyst, Jeffrey Toobin warned viewers of the incoming ‘conservative agenda’ once Trump’s nominee is confirmed.
In a screed for the latest issue of The New Yorker, CNN Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin warned the United States was doomed by prospect of President Trump naming another conservative justice to the Supreme Court. The cable news pundit feared that a “brazen conservative majority” would impact the country “in chilling new ways.”
On Thursday's New Day, liberal CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin continued freaking out over Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement as he not only renewed his predictions of Roe V. Wade being overturned, but he also forecast that religious conservatives who own businesses would bar gays from patronizing their restaurants and hotels. Liberal CNN co-host John Avlon left open the possibility that a "dystopian Handmaid's Tale type America" might happen. The two also badgered former Donald Trump advisor Steve Cheung as he resisted making predictions about future court cases, with Avlon complaining that "You're adding very little value to the conversation with that kind of pablum.
NewsBusters has documented some of the initial reaction to Justice Kennedy's retirement, but it continued hours later with CNN legal analysts Laura Coates and Jeffrey Toobin on The Lead. The pair warned that “more progressive-minded notions and ones that, frankly, are in line with our democratic principles” are at stake with Kennedy gone with gay people likely to face discrimination and being banned from bakeries, hotel rooms, and restaurants under the name of religious liberty.
On Wednesday’s edition of CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin and The Lead with Jake Tapper, CNN Chief Legal Analyst, Jeffrey Toobin expressed his anguish over the likelihood of President Trump nominating another Supreme Court Justice and forecasted the “doom” of Roe v Wade.
The media are very worried about Justice Kennedy leaving for one main reason: abortion. On Wednesday, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement. The media immediately expressed fury that, with a pro-life judge as replacement, Roe v. Wade might be overturned. The 1973 Supreme Court decision legalized abortion on a federal level in the United States. Overturning it would leave abortion up to the states – but media figures from The New Yorker to Salon warned about abortion vanishing.
On Wednesday's New Day show, co-hosts John Berman, Erica Hill, and John Avlon took time to fret over a clip of Attorney General Jeff Sessions insightfully pointing out the hypocrisy of liberal elites who have gone wildly over the top in attacking the Trump administration for separating illegal immigrants from their children, as required by law.
