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.
On Monday morning, CNN anchors bemoaned the Trump administration's decision to reject the findings of an international report on global warming, as the news network also devoted time to blaming manmade global warming for recent drought and wildfires in California.
Former Obama administration official and host Jim Sciutto fretted we could all face a slow torturous death because the Trump administration’s dismissal of a recent apocalyptic climate change report. Sciutto shared his worries with his guest, a geology professor on Wednesday’s CNN Newsroom.
CNN’s excited reaction on Friday to a judge’s ruling giving Jim Acosta back his press pass continued as Newsroom host Jim Sciutto compared the U.S. to the oppressive China (where he served under the Obama administration). Also, co-host Poppy Harlow treated Acosta like a conquering hero: “I have always been proud to call Jim Acosta a colleague and a friend... This is not about him. This is about press freedom and he will go back to work today.”
Not surprisingly, CNN was in an exuberant mood on Friday morning after federal judge Timothy Kelley ordered their chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta to have his White House press credentials restored following the Trump administration’s decision on November 7 to yank his pass following yet another act of showboating by Acosta hours earlier at a White House press conference.
On Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter released an extensive poll on the news habits of consumers plus a poll of 51 cable and broadcast network news hosts and late-night comedy hosts. In the full blog, check out the seven areas that The Hollywood Reporter article on their own poll didn’t have quite the time to do a deep dive on.
The frightening exposure of pipe bombs being mailed to prominent Democrats and media outlets, followed by a horrific shooting in a synagogue in Pittsburgh, led to news networks lecturing hour on the hour on the tone of our civic discourse. Physicians, heal thyselves. These are not dispassionate observers of the national scene. These are leftist partisans and they are cynically using national tragedies to equate conservative speech...conservative thought...to violence.
Did you know the migrant caravan of thousands moving up from Central America through Mexico towards the American border doesn't exist? Well, if you believe the "facts first" CNN, that must be the case. You see, its political commentator Errol Louis declared on Tuesday morning's CNN Newsroom on Tuesday that the caravan was "imaginary."
