Folks, this was the moment we’ve been waiting over two years for and it is glorious. On Thursday morning ahead of the Mueller report’s release and after a press conference by Attorney General Bill Barr, CNN and it’s nine-person panel suffered a meltdown of biblical proportions, lashing out like Adam Schiff campaign workers at Barr’s “excessive and suspicious” “political commercial” offering “gratuitous statements” for the President and against the press
If House Democrats are sinking to a new low by using their subpoena power to rummage through the President's personal tax returns, you wouldn't know it by the way they have been treated on CNN over the past few days. Hosts on the liberal cable network have routinely lobbed softballs at Democratic interviewees, while challenges to the legitimacy of their quest see the President’s taxes were few and far between.
Hardly a day goes by without liberals in the “mainstream media” accusing the popular Fox News Channel of having a “unique relationship” with Donald Trump, the Republican occupant of the White House. Of course, those same people avoid or deny that a similar connection existed between former Democrat President Barack Obama and the CNN and MSNBC networks. As a result, Erick Erickson -- a reporter who worked at FNC for five years -- has claimed that “the truth” about the channel and its liberal counterparts has more to do with ratings dominance than any pro-GOP bias.
CNN Newsroom co-anchor Jim Sciutto tried to trap a Republican congressman with a gotcha question on Tuesday’s morning show, but failed miserably when the congressman revealed he had done his homework. Sciutto, who also worked under former President Obama, grilled Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger on why he supported President Trump declaring the U.S./Mexico border security a national emergency.
Less than an hour before Michael Cohen was set to begin his testimony on Capitol Hill, the panel on CNN Newsroom appeared extremely worried that President Trump would make a bad deal with North Korea just to distract from the Cohen testimony. Leading the charge was “objective” CNN National Security Analyst and CNN Newsroom co-host Jim Sciutto, who worked in the Obama administration as a senior adviser to the United States Ambassador to China.
Early Thursday morning in the United States, CNN gloated about the abrupt end of the Hanoi, Vietnam summit between President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un with a potpourri of liberal bloviating. Such hot takes ranged from taunting Trump as a failure on North Korea, not understanding that the presidency isn’t like The Apprentice, suggested the Michael Cohen hearing hurt talks, and wondered how much longer Trump will be in office.
As NewsBusters has previously reported, the national media, including CNN itself, have gone into an uproar over CNN’s decision to hire former Justice Department Spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores as Deputy Political Editor. The topic came up on Wednesday’s edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight, where the eponymous host discussed the Isgur Flores hysteria with media reporter for The Hill Joe Concha. Concha ended up highlighting a blaring double standard when it comes to CNN’s hiring of political operatives with “no journalism experience.”
The headlines from CNN, the New York Times and the Washington Post on Tuesday had trouble explaining the honest truth: Congresswoman Ilhan Omar made anti-Semitic comments over the weekend and was slammed by fellow Democrats. A CNN on-screen graphic spun, “Rep. Omar Apologizes 'Unequivocally' for Tweets Called Anti-Semitic.”
During CNN Newsroom Thursday morning, the panel blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for wanting to “restrict voting rights” because he opposed a Democrat House bill which would demand Election Day be made a paid federal holiday.
After the media spent weeks hammering Republicans and the White House over the ongoing government shutdown – while claiming Democrats have “no incentive” to compromise – Politico reported on Wednesday that many freshman House Democrats were increasingly “concerned with the party’s strategy” and even “freaking out” over the possibility of a political backlash.
This week, NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of 2018. Today, we're reviewing the most idiotic quotes of the year. Journalists making the cut this year include Chris Matthews wanting “thought and prayers” to be “outlawed,” The New York Times telling readers that communist theorist Karl Marx was “right,” and CNN’s Jim Sciutto scaring his audience about climate change, as he feared we were being “slowly burned to death.”
CNN’s Jim Sciutto was one of the many journalists this week who attacked President Trump’s comments about border security during his meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer Tuesday. Sciutto even did a whole segment “fact-checking” the president on Wednesday’s CNN Newsroom. Unfortunately for him, actual experts from DHS called out his reporting on Twitter with a brutal comeback.
