Peter Navarro Gives CNN's Berman a Hydroxychloroquine Assignment
CNN, along with MSNBC, remains one of the media bastions still remaining hostile toward the use of hydroxychloroquine.

CNN Features Guest 44x for 150 Mins, Barely Notes Past Abortion Job
Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, CNN has shown an inability to shy away from framing the pandemic through the lens of attacking President Trump.

Friday morning, CNN brought on a juror from the Roger Stone trial to dismiss President Trump’s claims of political bias.

CNN Touts 'Public Responsibility', 'Integrity' of Kelly Bashing Trump
The media who once hated former Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly with every fiber of their being are now awestruck by the former Trump official turning on his boss.
