Ohio Rep. and Democratic Presidential candidate Tim Ryan joined CNN Newsroom co-host Jim Sciutto on Wednesday to go on a passionate, profanity-laced, if not factually challenged rant against Mitch McConnell and the National Rifle Association. Sciutto did not care to challenge Ryan on any one of his numerous arguments, such as they were, instead choosing to aide Ryan is his diatribe against McConnell. As might be already obvious, this post and video contain strong language.
After CNN online finally published a report on the Dayton shooter’s leftist politics late Monday night, the network’s left-wing anchors and reporters were eager to dismantle it almost as soon as it went up. On Twitter, CNN host Brian Stelter and reporter Oliver Darcy argued that the two shootings couldn’t be compared and denied that the Dayton shooting was politically motivated. On Tuesday morning, CNN anchors continued the spin, on-air.
Along with panelists on Monday morning’s CNN Newsroom ripping President Trump’s speech and displaying a visceral hatred for non-liberals, these CNN personalities bolstered their takes on this weekend’s mass shootings by showcasing a nearly 14-minute-long beatdown of political commentator David Urban, who was the lone conservative panelist.
On Monday morning, CNN Newsroom made sure everyone recognized its hatred for President Donald Trump, his supporters, the Second Amendment, and anyone looking to unify the country in the wake of the Dayton and El Paso mass shootings. If you weren’t on board with those terms or approved of the President’s Monday morning speech, there was no place for you aboard Team Jeffrey Zucker.
While he’s received some praise during his congressional career, the liberal media’s use of sudden respect boiled with Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX) announcing that he won’t seek reelection. And, as with many cases of when GOPers either retire or pass away, the liberal media used the occasion to lament how their hated opposition just isn’t as respectable as it used to be. Throughout the day on Friday, CNN put that truism on display.
President Trump has nominated Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe to replace Dan Coats as Director of National Intelligence and CNN's Jim Sciutto is not supportive. In addition to an alleged lack of experience, Sciutto condemned the "Trump loyalist" for being "a fierce critic of Robert Mueller’s handling investigation." On the Monday edition of CNN Newsroom, Sciutto confronted Utah Republican Chris Stewart about these concerns.
While others in the liberal media conceded that Wednesday morning’s House hearing with former Special Counsel Robert Mueller didn’t go as swimmingly as planned, CNN largely operated in an alternate reality concocted by Marvel’s Doctor Strange. Instead, the analysts and hosts triumphantly hailed the hearing’s contents as a “big deal,” a “bombshell,” and “really bad” for Trump that it was “almost like an opening argument in an impeachment proceeding” with Democrats asking real questions while the GOP had illegitimate ones.
As the media moves into week two of President Trump versus "The Squad," the focus has shifted from Trump's original tweets to "How dare you call The Squad unpatriotic." CNN Newsroom co-host Jim Sciutto has been at the forefront of this goal post shifting and on Monday's show he battled Trump campaign adviser Mercedes Schlapp on Trump's attacks on The Squad.
Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) offered a “dark prediction” of economic crisis and the liberal media immediately helped her sell those fears. Warren wrote of “The Coming Economic Crash and How to Stop It” on Medium on July 22. In it, she claimed “top economists” warned if the debt ceiling is breached there could be a “catastrophe” worse than 2008’s Lehman Brothers failure. That morning, CNN Newsroom With Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto discussed Warren’s prediction on her terms, rather than pushing back hard on such a dramatic claim.
Elizabeth Warren is trying to portray herself as the serious candidate with a left-wing plan to address the nation's issues. On Thursday, CNN Newsroom hosts Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto were joined by CNN correspondent MJ Lee to discuss Warren's Wall Street proposals in a segment that ended with Sciutto stating that the plan was not far-left "whackadoodle."
The media must be exhausted from constantly moving the goal posts. First, it was why won't Republicans condemn President Trump and his tweets, then the condemnation was not sufficient and now, according to CNN Newsroom co-host Jim Sciutto are damaging the state of political discourse by calling the four Democratic congresswomen "whacko birds."
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Theresa May held a joint press conference during his state visit to the United Kingdom. The included Trump acting diplomatic towards his hosts, and he even extended an olive branch to May when he quipped that she was probably a better negotiator than him, but that didn’t stop CNN from running hourly coverage of the protests in London.
