Beto O'Rourke is currently trying to resurrect his dying campaign by espousing every far-left gun control policy he can think of and hope that Democratic voters see that and its associated cursing as passionate. If the Democratic Primary consisted of the folks at CNN Newsroom that strategy just might have worked as co-host Jim Sciutto wondered on Friday if Democrats are being too cautious when it comes to campaigning on gun control.
Former George W. Bush's Bullhorn Speech is one of the most defining and iconic moments in American history, the only thing that compares to it is Franklin Roosevelt's Day of Infamy speech. Unfortunately, CNN Newsroom co-host Poppy Harlow tried to use the sense of national unity in the circumstances of Bush's speech on the eighteenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks to push gun control.
On Wednesday, CNN showcased yet again their unsavory penchant for gun control and confiscation without facts and knowing little about an arrest warrant gone wrong in Philadelphia that left six police officers hurt. Unfortunately, this behavior continued into Thursday with 19 minutes and 28 seconds of gun control lobbying in context of the incident during their first 12 hours of live programming.
Along with panelists on Monday morning’s CNN Newsroom ripping President Trump’s speech and displaying a visceral hatred for non-liberals, these CNN personalities bolstered their takes on this weekend’s mass shootings by showcasing a nearly 14-minute-long beatdown of political commentator David Urban, who was the lone conservative panelist.
On Monday morning, CNN Newsroom made sure everyone recognized its hatred for President Donald Trump, his supporters, the Second Amendment, and anyone looking to unify the country in the wake of the Dayton and El Paso mass shootings. If you weren’t on board with those terms or approved of the President’s Monday morning speech, there was no place for you aboard Team Jeffrey Zucker.
While he’s received some praise during his congressional career, the liberal media’s use of sudden respect boiled with Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX) announcing that he won’t seek reelection. And, as with many cases of when GOPers either retire or pass away, the liberal media used the occasion to lament how their hated opposition just isn’t as respectable as it used to be. Throughout the day on Friday, CNN put that truism on display.
Former Trump aide turned CNN commentator David Urban was not nearly as impressed with Pete Buttigieg's Tuesday night debate performance as the rest of Wednesday's CNN Newsroom panel.
Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) offered a “dark prediction” of economic crisis and the liberal media immediately helped her sell those fears. Warren wrote of “The Coming Economic Crash and How to Stop It” on Medium on July 22. In it, she claimed “top economists” warned if the debt ceiling is breached there could be a “catastrophe” worse than 2008’s Lehman Brothers failure. That morning, CNN Newsroom With Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto discussed Warren’s prediction on her terms, rather than pushing back hard on such a dramatic claim.
Elizabeth Warren is trying to portray herself as the serious candidate with a left-wing plan to address the nation's issues. On Thursday, CNN Newsroom hosts Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto were joined by CNN correspondent MJ Lee to discuss Warren's Wall Street proposals in a segment that ended with Sciutto stating that the plan was not far-left "whackadoodle."
The media must be exhausted from constantly moving the goal posts. First, it was why won't Republicans condemn President Trump and his tweets, then the condemnation was not sufficient and now, according to CNN Newsroom co-host Jim Sciutto are damaging the state of political discourse by calling the four Democratic congresswomen "whacko birds."
Ahead of a U.S. appeals court in New Orleans hearing arguments in a Republican-led lawsuit against ObamaCare on Tuesday, the media scared viewers by warning that if the Affordable Care Act was deemed unconstitutional it “could wipe out coverage for millions of Americans.” Reporters therefore predicted that if ObamaCare was struck down it would cause the GOP to “lose big politically” in the 2020 election.
After months of saying there was no crisis at the southern border, the media have now changed their tune, as has the Democratic Party, but that does not mean that the Democratic Party is at peace with itself. In the aftermath of an embarrassing defeat, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi criticized Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive firebrands for living in "their Twitter world." On Monday's CNN Newsroom, co-founder of The Beat DC, Tiffany Cross joined co-host Poppy Harlow and CNN analyst Molly Ball to take AOC's side and to declare that the poor conditions at the border are due to the fact that the migrants are not white.
