CNN Newsroom co-hosts Jim Sciutto and Poppy Harlow like to think of themselves as being on the front lines in President Trump's war against the truth. Trump's Tuesday rally in Pennsylvania in the aftermath of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report on the FBI's handling of Crossfire Hurricane provided the duo another chance to put on their fact-checking hats for their Wednesday show, but once again it was they who were the ones spreading misinformation.
Former failed Democratic nominee for president and Secretary of State John Kerry took his initiative to declare war on climate change to CNN Newsroom on Tuesday where he found an agreeable audience in co-hosts Jim Sciutto and Poppy Harlow. Throughout the segment they could be heard adding the approval to Kerry's long list of contradictions, non-sequiturs, and belief that history began in 2017 when Donald Trump became president.
On Monday's New Day on CNN, as fill-in co-host Jim Sciutto and CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin discussed the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to take up a gun case originating in New York, the two fretted that the right-leaning Court might end up barring many gun control proposals that are popular with liberals like more restrictive background checks.
With the public testimony portion of the House impeachment proceedings concluded, Democrats have discovered they have a problem: the public hearings did nothing to increase support for impeachment. On Tuesday's CNN Newsroom, CNN politics reporter Chris Cillizza joined co-host Jim Sciutto to ponder why this is and concluded that it isn't because the lack of overwhelming evidence, but rather due to the fact that the holiday season is upon us.
On Wednesday, CNN Newsroom co-host Jim Sciutto was visibly frustrated that Americans were not “moved” by the vague quid pro quo allegation against President Trump. To spice things up, Sciutto enlisted the help of CNN analyst Paul Callan, who conjured up a fanciful hypothetical world where President Trump had been caught planning a bank robbery.
CNN Newsroom co-host Jim Sciutto and “climate correspondent” Bill Weir spent time Wednesday warning Americans that it may be “too late” to stop the upcoming environmental global catastrophe. While most Americans are going to be enjoying their families and remembering what they are thankful for this holiday, the CNN duo claimed families instead would be sitting around worrying about how the world is going to become uninhabitable in the next decade.
CNN Newsroom co-host Jim Sciutto took the opportunity on Monday to diagnose Republicans with reality-denying "psychosis" and hype his book Shadow War in the process. Sciutto was particularly incensed at Republicans for questioning Russian interference in the 2016 election, instead offering up the CrowdStrike conspiracy theory that says it was Ukraine that interfered in 2016.
As impeachment frenzy continues to sweep the nation, CNN Newsroom co-hosts Jim Sciutto and Poppy Harlow welcomed CNN national security analyst Shawn Turner and former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine (under Clinton) Steven Pifer to their Tuesday show. Turner and Pifer tried to debunk the Administration's claims that they have been tougher on Russia than President Obama, because unlike Obama, Trump actually has sent the Ukrainians lethal aid in the form of Javelin anti-tank missiles and that Trump withheld the aid because, according to Mick Mulvaney, he was worried how Russia might react.
CNN's Jim Sciutto took the idea that the consumer and the manufacturers ultimately pay for tariffs in the form of increased prices of imported goods to absurdly assert that the United States does not collect tariffs. It wasn't just an unfortunate slip of the tongue on the part of Sciutto because he emphasized his silly assertion twice and both times, as you can see and hear in the video, with an air of superior authority to Peter Navarro who happens to have an extensive academic background in economics.
Every Sunday, CNN's Brian Stelter hosts a show entitled Reliable Sources, but on Friday's edition of CNN Newsroom Stelter could be seen eagerly anticipating a new book by the most unreliable of source- that being of the anonymously written book that will purportedly be a behind the scenes look into the workings of the Trump Administration.
The 2012 Benghazi attacks are suddenly a topic of interest for CNN on Wednesday morning, but only as a tool to criticize Republicans. Smug CNN Newsroom hosts Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto eagerly showcased a clip of former Rep. Trey Gowdy slamming Democrats for withholding information from the Republican led-committee, equating it to what Trump’s administration is doing now with the impeachment inquiry.
As biased as the journalists on CNN are, the anonymous individuals behind the graphics department seem even worse. Wednesday’s CNN Newsroom may have seen the worst example yet. (And that’s saying something.) The network told viewers that the White House has officially “declared war” on the “Constitution.” (It hasn’t.) Here’s the full graphic and screen shot from the opening of the 9am hour: “WH Declares War on Impeachment Inquiry & Constitution.”
