On Wednesday’s CNN Newsroom, host Carol Costello sided with liberal CNN contributor Sally Kohn in rejecting outright the idea that the Clinton Foundation did not give as much money as it claimed to veterans. Costello and Kohn scoffed at the criticism, while Costello acted as if she had never even heard that the foundation faced ethical controversies.
Appearing as a guest on Tuesday's Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield, far-left CNN political commentator Sally Kohn oddly brought up the Indiana Ku Klux Klan from the 1920s as evidence of the state being "socially conservative" and "racially divisive," and therefore a place where GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is likely to win by a landslide.
Her analysis was so bizarre that even the left-leaning Ashleigh Banfield stepped in to "stick up for" Indiana residents who "would absolutely disavow that."
On CNN Thursday night, Sally Kohn sparred with Tea Party News Network’s Scottie Nell Hughes over Donald Trump calling out Hillary Clinton for using “the woman card.” Hughes defended Trump’s statement while Kohn claimed that it was worse on Trump’s side because “most of his supporters are only voting for him because he’s a white guy.”
Appearing as a panel member for CNN's live election coverage on Saturday, liberal CNN political commentator and Daily Beast columnist Sally Kohn hyperbolically predicted that a President Donald Trump would put people in "internment camps" and get rid of habeas corpus when it was her turn to give final thoughts on the day's news.
Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's New Day on CNN to discuss the presidential race, liberal CNN political commentator and Daily Beast columnist Sally Kohn suggested that Democratic voter turnout will likely be up in November with "stopping us from being Nazi Germany" as a motivator against Donald Trump, inspiring no pushback from co-host Alisyn Camerota over the hyperbole.
CNN’s resident gem Sally Kohn was a guest on CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello February 22. The political analyst and Daily Beast writer was asked to weigh in on Clinton’s trust with voters. Of course Kohn couldn’t do that without bringing up sexism, how much Trump’s voters hated gay people, and how much the right misleads the media.
When Costello brought up that only 12 percent of Democratic voters at the Nevada caucus said that they trusted Clinton, Kohn visibly bristled and rushed in to defend Clinton by claiming that her trust issues were “smears” and a “story” made up by the right:
As CNN's Chris Cuomo on Friday hosted a debate between the left and the far left over whether "progressive" Democrats should embrace Hillary Clinton as one of them, liberal CNN political commentator Sally Kohn absurdly claimed that the reason the word "liberalism" became "tainted" was because former President Bill Clinton went to the right on gay rights and welfare reform. This in spite of the fact that Bill Clinton himself had already been running from the word "liberal" since the beginning of his first presidential campaign because of failed liberal Democratic presidential candidates like Michael Dukakis and Walter Mondale.
NewsBusters has been revealing the winners and top runners-up for each category in the MRC’s “Best Notable Quotables of 2015,” our annual awards for the year’s worst journalism. Today, the “Ku Klux Con Job Award,” for smearing conservatives with phony racism charges. Winning this category: Washington Post columnist Harold Meyerson, who on April 8 let loose a litany of complaints about the modern-day GOP, and claimed they were “really the party of Jefferson Davis.”
NewsBusters has been revealing the winners and top runners-up for each category in the MRC’s “Best Notable Quotables of 2015,” our annual awards for the year’s worst journalism. Today, the “Audacity of Dopes” award, for the wackiest analysis of the year. Winning this “honor,” Vox.com writer Dylan Matthews, who wrote a piece just before the July 4 Independence Day holiday calling the American Revolution a “mistake” because it led to things like the 2nd Amendment (horrors!) and a federal government that spends less (scandalous!) than the typical European parliamentary government.
On Friday, Sally Kohn took to The Daily Beast to argue that we should all be heartened by the fact that “The Religious Fundamentalists Are Losing.” In making her case, Kohn compared Christian ‘hardliners’ – you social conservative ones who are pro-life and pro-traditional marriage – with DAESH, or ISIS as many in the West know it.
Lefty writer and CNN contributor Sally Kohn, along with her fellow CNN panelists, earned the dubious honor of winning the Dan Rather Memorial Award for the Stupidest Analysis at last night's Media Research Center Gala and DisHonors Awards.
This week, liberal journalists use Donald Trump's rise as another reason to bash conservatives, with NBC's Chuck Todd suggesting this is a "reap-what-you-sow" moment for the GOP, even as CNN's Nia-Malika Henderson blasts that "the politics of... race baiting have defined the Republican Party for quite some time." And The Daily Beast's Jonathan Alter says it's "not a partisan comment," but "there's a vileness gap between our political parties" — with Republicans, of course, being the only ones guilty of nasty rhetoric.
