Naturally, CNN has been unable to resist their impulse to depart from solely informing the public about the coronavirus pandemic to insteadblame everything on President Trump as the death toll passes 4,000 Americans. One form has been refusing to carry portions of the Coronavirus Task Force daily briefing. On Wednesday, the lies and whiplash boiled over as CNN repeatedly dipped in and out of the briefing, including for an extended period of time to falsely claim that the briefing had been hijacked by an announcement on drug trafficking.
If you want to feel hopeless about the coronavirus pandemic and be convinced President Trump has allowed the virus to wreak havoc, CNN is the place for you. But Thursday night on the Fox News Channel, Tucker Carlson provided a reality check in showing how New York City’s far-left local officials initially dismissed the virus. And thanks to CNN, they’ve been able to absolve themselves of responsibility for the chaos inside their hospitals.
Following suit from MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell and unlike his CNN colleague Dana Bash from Tuesday, CNN’s Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer didn’t offer anything Wednesday in interviewing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) that’ll end up in a career highlight reel showing journalistic prowess. Instead, the 13-minute-plus interview was one softball after another, refusing to grill Pelosi on anything, or push back against Pelosi’s assertion that Senate Republicans don’t care about struggling Americans.
President Trump pushed back at CBS reporter Paula Reid on Wednesday when she pushed the usual "nonpartisan experts say you're all wrong" line on him. After the live briefing, CNN host Wolf Blitzer turned to in-house analysts Daniel Dale -- the "fact checker" -- and Gloria Borger, who said it's "so ridiculous" that the press would like to see him do poorly.
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).
