Tuesday afternoon on CNN, Inside Politics and CNN Right Now compared conservatives and Republicans nationwide seeking to advance pro-life legislation to the scandal-ridden Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D) after he made his comments endorsing infanticide. Their rationale? Well, in both cases, those two sides found themselves “on the defensive.” Yes, really.
This is what the liberal media not being able to control the narrative and what you, the public, know and don’t know. On Thursday afternoon, CNN’s The Lead threw a full-blown conniption after President Donald Trump appeared and then took no questions at a last-minute White House Press Briefing alongside National Border Patrol Council members. Fill-in host Brianna Keilar immediately seemed bewildered, noting that the President was “pulling the spotlight back to the White House and to his point of view, but it's — he didn't even take questions.”
On Thursday night, correspondent Randi “Kush” Kaye offered an hour-long special on the White House Briefing Room that served as nothing more than a pompous exercise in lamenting how they believe the Trump administration has been unfair to them and are unraveling American democracy. The endeavor was dominated by attempts to make viewers to feel bad for CNN, fondly look back on past administrations, and offer hissy fits about how, thanks to online and social media outlets, they’ve lost the ability to control the minds of the American public.
Friday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom showed its more than committed to being in the opposition party, hailing a rally featuring former President Barack Obama as “an extraordinary moment” and “so interesting” while lashing out at current President Donald Trump for suggesting that the media have contributed to rising tensions and violence in our country.
On Tuesday's The Situation Room, liberal CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin and correspondent Kaitlan Collins got into a surprising debate over whether it was appropriate for President Donald Trump to call himself a "nationalist" as Collins claimed that the word "nationalism" had become "like Hitler" while Toobin seemed out of character as he defended the President.
CNN has made a hero out of Kaitlan Collins, after the young White House correspondent was banned from one press briefing for her petulant behavior a few months ago. But maybe they should make sure their reporters actually know what they’re talking about before giving them important assignments like reporting from the swearing-in ceremony of the next Supreme Court justice.
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.”
President Trump’s late Monday morning press conference was originally to discuss the new trade agreement between Canada, Mexico, and the United States (USMCA), but many in the liberal media on hand dismissed its significance in favor of destroying Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. And thus the event quickly devolved into a fight over the FBI investigation concerning Kavanaugh because, for the media, that’s the only story worth talking about on TV to any significance.
In the 40 minutes since President Trump’s early Wednesday evening press conference, CNN’s The Situation Room did nothing to combat the notion that the liberal media is the opposition party. All told, the assembled analysts and journalists accused Brett Kavanaugh supporters of being racist and sexist conspiracy theorists who are being spoon-fed their talking points from Fox News.
On Monday afternoon, CNN went into full-blown panic mode directing anger and bitterness at the Daily Caller’s Saagar Enjeti and Reuters’s Roberta Rampton following President Trump’s press conference with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte in which neither U.S. reporter asked the President the questions CNN wanted them to.
CNN’s Van Jones was the guest on Thursday’s The View where he plugged his primetime weekend show aimed at bringing together conservatives and liberals. While he mostly argued the haughty Michelle Obama-esque “When they go low, we go high” approach for the left, host Sunny Hostin badgered him for that take, saying anything less than hostility to Trump voters was being “complicit.”
Appearing on Fox Business Network’s Varney & Co. on Thursday, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell hammered CNN for abandoning any pretense of objective journalism and devoting all of its air time to attacking President Trump on issue after issue. Host Stuart Varney, a CNN alum, lamented that it was “sad to see” the cable channel had fallen so far.
