During Tuesday’s edition of CNN's New Day, media critic Brian Stelter compiled a report suggesting that Fox News bears responsibility for the massacre at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh over the weekend. It looks like this has become the new normal on CNN; Stelter and his panel made the exact same point on Reliable Sources just 48 hours earlier.
It was quite the scene on Monday’s New Day as the panel of CNN analysts and hosts continued the liberal media drumbeat to try and (at least culturally) criminalize and ostracize conservative speech as the root of evil, demanding Fox News be punished and the President be condemned for his “racist dog whistles” against the caravan. All told, they deemed “right-wing terrorism” as responsible for the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting.
All Monday morning, CNN spent their time blaming President Trump for the horrific synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh by an avowed anti-Semite over the weekend. CNN’s John Berman tried to get just about every guest on CNN’s three hour morning show New Day, to denounce Trump as inspiring a murderer, but former Democrat vice presidential nominee Joe Lieberman wasn’t buying Berman’s spin.
After the New York Times shared a leaked White House memo that suggested the Trump administration would cut Obama era policies which gave special privileges and protections to those who identified as “transgender,” the media has reacted predictably with outrage. On CNN’s New Day Monday, political analyst John Avlon and hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota used the gender issue as well as the issue of illegal immigration to rally viewers to vote against President Trump’s “lies, bigotry and fear” in the upcoming November election.
Tuesday morning on CNN's New Day, liberal historian Doris Kearns Goodwin admits that President Trump has "made a connection" with his base, and that "he's made them feel that he's on their side."
On Monday's New Day, CNN co-host John Berman claimed that voting rights in the U.S. are "under siege" in some states controlled by Republicans as he introduced a "Reality Check" segment by left-leaning CNN analyst John Avlon. The left-leaning CNN contributor misinformed the audience by repeating misinformation about voter purge laws in states like Ohio and Georgia as he wrongly suggested that voters could be kicked off the voting rolls simply for going a couple of years without voting.
During the past three weeks, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has received a deluge of news coverage accusing him of vile crimes, including attempted rape and even organizing gang rapes. While these charges did not originate with the news media, the lack of satisfactory corroborating evidence should have caused ethical reporters to refrain from gratuitously repeating allegations that painted Kavanaugh in a monstrous light. But this is not what happened.
CNN does its best to undermine the FBI's latest investigation of Brett Kavanaugh. Host John Berman suggests that the investigation is a "sham." Host Alisyn Camerota sheds crocodile tears, wondering whether the impliedly inadequate investigation is "bad for the FBI."
During Tuesday’s New Day, the CNN panel discussed President Trump’s treatment of ABC reporter Cecilia Vega during Monday's press conference in the Rose Garden and specifically whether or not his “snide comment” towards her was a result of sexism. CNN political analyst Brian Karem used his platform on the network’s flagship morning program to refer to President Trump as a “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot.”
On Wednesday morning, CNN's New Day show devoted its "Reality Check" segment to complaining that President Donald Trump has not been as liberal on gay rights as they expected he might be when he was running for President.
During Monday’s edition of New Day, co-host John Berman found another reason to push CNN's favorite conspiracy theory, that the Russians stole the election from Hillary Clinton. Berman touted a new book: "Could Donald Trump have won the presidency without Russia’s meddling? A new book explores that question and has an answer. That’s an answer the President might not like.” Or an answer CNN certainly does like.
Our friends at Grabien Tuesday morning flagged down quite the exchange on CNN’s New Day in which chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin cast aside and even mocked the anguish and embarrassment white men like Brett Kavanuagh suffer as a result of being accused of sexual misconduct. Of course, Toobin’s hot take was offered without regard for one’s guilt or innocence. You’d think a legal analyst should have that presumption and emphasize the importance of facts, but the liberal media have, by and large, shown they’re incapable of even doing that.
