CNN continued to embody its Jeffrey Zucker-led moniker of being an ethics-free, fear-mongering, and liberal-heavy network as The Situation Room and host Wolf Blitzer again attempted to make viewers feel bad for CNN contributor Andrew McCabe, the former acting FBI director (who’s under criminal investigation). Why? Because hours earlier, McCabe was again “a prominent target of” President Trump’s “anger.”
On Monday's The Situation Room, liberal CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin went over the top into hyperbole by claiming that President Donald Trump's dismissal of both Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman and his brother from their jobs at the White House amounted to "North Korean-style punishment of the whole family." They were executed?
Moments after President Trump wrapped up his eventful State of the Union address Tuesday night, CNN host Jake Tapper took to ripping into; much like the petty Speaker of the House did in ripping up the advanced copy Trump gave her. According to him, the address bore a striking resemblance to mindless “reality television,” and, with very few exceptions, it was nothing but divisive “red meat” for his base.
Before the Articles of Impeachment even reached the Senate, liberal journalists on broadcast and cable news insisted that any trial would be illegitimate without witnesses. Who’d ever heard of a trial without witnesses, they asked? As it turns out, their counterparts from 1999 had. Back then, journalists were adamant that any witnesses in President Clinton’s Senate trial would needlessly prolong a process whose outcome was essentially predetermined anyway.
CNN really lays it on thick when it comes to its own preferred experts driving the impeachment of Donald Trump. Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) attacked Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman on Twitter, which drove CNN into a rage on Friday morning. Vindman's testimony against Trump was played by Democrats during their presentation on Thursday.
One could be forgiven for inferring from this morning’s CNN chyron that a conservative group was releasing attack ads against Senator Susan Collins (R-ME); after all, the chyron read: “Conservative Group Releases Ad Targeting GOP Sen. Collins.” But in reality, the “conservative group” in question is a PAC created by frequent CNN guest George Conway, and populated by formerly Republican never-Trumpers like Rick Wilson and Steve Schmidt.
The liberal hacks at CNN were like kids on Christmas morning during Wednesday’s first break in the Senate impeachment trial, offering themselves up not as journalists but valentines for lead House Impeachment Manager Adam Schiff (D-CA), calling his presentation “coherent,” “cohesive,” “dazzling,” “forceful,” “inspiring,” “powerful,” and “remarkable.” In other words, for those of us out there that are single, we can only hope and pray to find someone who speaks to us the way CNN talks about their dearly beloved Schiff.
Talk about #FirstWorldProblems for the liberal media. Feigning outrage on Thursday’s Situation Room about how Senator Martha McSally (R-AZ) referred to chief congressional correspondent Manu Raju hours earlier as “a liberal hack,” host Wolf Blitzer bemoaned it as a “disgusting” and “awful, awful thing” that, if Arizona voters are smart, could punish her in November (i.e. elect Democrat Mark Kelly instead).
Following up on his February 11 tour de force on the national embarrassment that is the dishonest liberal media, National Review editor Charles C.W. Cooke concluded 2019 with another masterpiece for the magazine’s December 31 issue that NewsBusters readers will enjoy in “CNN Is Not a News Network.” Cooke eviscerated CNN as having become “a peculiar and unlovely hybrid of progressive propaganda outlet, oleaginous media apologist, sexless cultural scold, and frenzied Donald Trump stalkerblog.”
Nick Fondacaro reported that the networks skipped over the bombshell -- yes, bombshell -- that the judge overseeing the FISA court unleashed a harsh critique of the FBI late on Tuesday. So we wondered if they all kept skipping it on the morning shows. The answer is Yes, with an asterisk. CBS This Morning gave it ten seconds in their top-of-show clip melange called "Eye Opener." Don't blink, you'll miss it!
The impeachment of President Trump has been a textbook case in media hypocrisy and on Wednesday's CNN impeachment pre-game show, Jake Tapper illustrated why where he defended the way Democrats behaved during the Bill Clinton's impeachment twenty years ago.
The media just cannot bring themselves to admit that just because Russia interfered in the 2016 election, does not mean that Ukraine did not, even if on a smaller scale. The latest media personality to have this trouble was CNN's Wolf Blitzer as he interviewed Judiciary Committee member Tom McClintock of California before Monday's impeachment hearings.
