Since the passing of former President George H.W. Bush, most of the networks have revisited one of the longstanding liberal peeves against the former Republican President -- that he brought to the attention of voters the fact that 1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis supported a prison furlough program that allowed a convicted murderer, Willie Horton, to violently attack a couple while he was free. And, in doing so, the networks have also repeated the recurring myth that Bush's campaign was responsible for "the Willie Horton ad" that used a mug shot of Horton, thus revealing his race, when, in reality, the version of the ad run by the Bush campaign did not use the image and made no hint that Horton was black.
CNN’s Inside Politics host John King insisted on Thursday’s show that he wasn’t blaming President Donald Trump for this week’s mail bombs, but did exactly that. On Friday, King did it again, declaring that the pro-Trump bumper stickers on the suspects van (including “CNN sucks”) “does not make the President responsible for this,” even though he used the word “but” to then do not only that, but directly lecture Trump supporters.
CNN’s liberal bias is so overt and obvious these days, you don’t even have to hear the journalists speak. Just reading the onscreen graphic will explain everything you need to know. In the wake of Wednesday's attempted mail bombings, here’s how the CNN graphics department responded.
In an amazing display of media hubris, CNN's Inside Politics host John King used Tuesday’s show to vent his frustration with President Trump and his supporters by screeching directly into the camera: “The president thinks you’re stupid!” Of course, King hasn’t said anything about charges that CNN has intentionally misled its viewers on a variety of topics, ranging from denying that the network generates "fake news" to asserting the channel doesn’t have "Trump Derangement Syndrome."
During each short break in the Kavanaugh show trial in the Senate Judiciary Committee, the liberal media let loose a flood of condemnation for the conservative nominee. In the middle of a break during the 5:00 p.m. Eastern hour, a gaggle of CNN liberals ripped into Kavanaugh for becoming Trumpian in his forceful defense of himself, his reputation, and family.
Breaking in just after noon Eastern on Tuesday for Inside Politics, panelists expressed support for liberal Senators and protesters repeatedly disrupting and trying to delay the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, declaring they “had no choice” and “definitely” have a point about Kavanaugh not being transparent with Americans concerning his time in the Bush White House.
During Sunday’s edition CNN’s Inside Politics, host John King was frustrated with President Trump’s supporters, both in the media and elsewhere, for what he suggested was their double standard on lying politicians. But in doing so, he exposed CNN’s own shifting standards for what they would and wouldn’t hold Democratic leaders accountable for.
If there’s one thing the media doesn’t seem to specialize in, it’s originality. They all read from the same script. On five different programs broadcast Monday and Tuesday on three different networks, the media went off the rails; repeatedly calling President Trump a dictator and in some cases comparing him to Turkish Dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan. At least they didn’t compare him to Hitler.
David Rutz at the Washington Free Beacon pointed out that CNN is a little shocked and alarmed that supposedly smart people don't know their Russiagate trivia. Don't they have CNN on their TV for six Russia-packed hours at a time? America lacks "focus" on CNN's obsessions. On Friday afternoon's Inside Politics, host John King tried to gently mock the intelligence of Jeopardy contestants who couldn't identify Michael Flynn in a plea-deal question.
After rustling the feathers of foreign elitists at the G7 summit in Canada over the weekend, President Trump hopped on Air Force One and shot over to Singapore for Monday’s historic meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un. Of course, the liberal media was foaming at the mouth over Trump’s ability to push back against allies and the thought of something getting done with North Korea. The host of CNN’s Inside Politics, John King eagerly joined that bandwagon on Sunday and even said Trump was making Putin happy.
The rolling disaster that is talk show host Samantha Bee’s hateful attack on Ivanka Trump continued on Thursday as CNN journalists condemned the TBS talk show host. Speaking of Bee’s disgusting smear of Ivanka Trump as “cunt,” S.E. Cupp declared: “What she said wasn't just unacceptable. Welcome to the misogyny club. I mean, she's joined by Keith Olbermann, one of the world’s most prolific misogynists.”
On Sunday morning, television news personalities begrudgingly showed a small degree of satisfaction with President Trump’s recent military action in Syria. Evidently disturbed by their support for anything Trump, cable and network media hosts collectively lifted the goalposts in unison and hurriedly ran them downfield.
