During Thursday’s edition of CNN’s New Day, host John Berman repeatedly acted as an attorney for Christine Blasey Ford, the professor accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her 36 years ago. Not long after accusing Republicans of orchestrating a “stealth intimidation campaign” against Ford, Berman asked “why should she (testify?) You said she owes this...I don’t know she...I mean, she’s got to do this for herself. She’s got to make this decision for herself.” Apparently, Berman sees no problem with throwing out a very serious allegation without bothering to elaborate.
On Friday's New Day show on CNN, during a discussion of the upcoming congressional midterm elections and high desires by Democrats to defeat Texas Senator Ted Cruz, CNN Politics senior writer Harry Enten actually declared that, "unfortunately," Cruz is ahead of Democrat Beto O'Rourke in most of the polls.
On Thursday's New Day, CNN misleadingly reported a new version of a similar story from earlier this year which suggested that the Trump administration had incompetently "lost" about 1,500 illegal immigrant children who had been in HHS custody. But the first version of the story had already been debunked earlier this year, and, on Thursday's show, CNN reporter Tal Kopen admitted that the story was not as bad as hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman initially made it sound.
CNN has apparently decided to cast itself as the Christine Ford defender. Opening New Day this morning, co-host John Berman claimed that Republicans have manage to "corner" Ford into testifying only under "excruciating" terms. Berman also accused Republicans of mounting a campaign of "stealth intimidation" against Ford. And of what does that intimidation consist, according to Berman? That Kavanaugh is known to be preparing for nine hours a day. Berman would presumably prefer that Kavanaugh go into a hearing unprepared to face the tender mercies of Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, and the other Dem members of the Judiciary committee.
During Wednesday’s edition of CNN’s New Day, co-hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman and their panel complained about President Trump’s description of the federal government’s handling of Hurricane Maria as a “success.” Camerota described that assertion as “hurtful,” while Berman described it as “not true.” CNN Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, on the other hand, suggested President Trump had a much more sinister motive for his response to the hurricane that ravaged the island territory of Puerto Rico last year.
During Monday’s edition of CNN’s New Day, correspondent Martin Savidge put together a package on the Tennessee Senate race of former Democratic Governor Phil Bredesen versus Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn and after the package concluded, co-host Alisyn Camerota all but endorsed Bredesen by proclaiming: “It’s nice to imagine that moderates are not extinct.”
On the eve of New Hampshire’s primary day, CNN’s New Day co-host John Berman interviewed Granite State congressional candidate Levi Sanders and, in addition to inquiring about why his socialist father Bernie hasn’t endorsed him, but he asked him to state what the President has done well and Sanders struggled to answer.
CNN analyst and White House correspondent for American Urban Radio April Ryan added to the media pile on of Republican nominee for governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, after he made an insensitive remark discussing his Democrat opponent’s liberal policies. The media seized on the gaffe Thursday morning, claiming it was a clear racist “dog whistle” that can be attributed to President Trump. Ryan herself slammed the Republican’s “mansplaining” on CNN’s New Day and bemoaned the lack of “political correctness” in today’s culture.
If impeaching Trump is the ultimate goal of the liberal media, fearmongering about a Mike Pence presidency must already be on their minds. That seemed to be the goal of CNN Tuesday when the network had on one of the authors of a new anti-Pence book on both New Day and CNN Newsroom August 28, to ask how the Vice President was really a “Christian supremacist” that all Americans should be worried about.
Liberal cable news outlets evidently had their own fairy tale ending in mind when former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations: impeachment. On Wednesday, CNN and MSNBC reporters, anchors, and paid contributors used the word an absurd 222 times in 18 hours.
Liberal Senator Elizabeth Warren offered a painfully awkward response when pressed by CNN’s John Berman on the murder of an Iowa college student by an illegal immigrant. Will the other networks, including CNN, follow-up on this gaffe? Talking to Berman on Wednesday about the killing of Mollie Tibbetts, Warren insisted that we need to focus on the “real problems,” such as illegals being separated from their parents.
During Tuesday’s edition of CNN’s New Day, co-host John Berman interviewed Florida Democratic Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, one of the President’s most vocal critics and he could not resist asking her to weigh in on President Trump’s reference to former White House employee Omarosa Manigault-Newman as a “dog.” Not surprisingly, Congresswoman Wilson had nothing kind to say about President Trump.
