In the aftermath of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's announcement that the Donald Trump administration was essentially reversing the Barack Obama policy of declaring Israeli settlements as illegal, most of the dominant media have inaccurately claimed that Trump has reversed "decades" or "40 years" of U.S. policy on the matter.
CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin continued the media's recent history of poor impeachment predictions on Thursday when he said predicted that Dr. Fiona Hill would testify that Russia interfered in the 2016 election for the purposes of electing Donald Trump.
So much for objectivity: For the past several weeks, anxious journalists have coached Democratic politicians from the sidelines with unsolicited advice on how best to convince the majority of Americans to support impeaching President Trump.
During the first break in Friday’s impeachment hearing featuring longtime U.S. Foreign Service official Marie Yovanovitch, CNN rolled out Obama-like fluff and praise for “credible,” “devastating,” and “truly powerful” testimony by someone with “ice in her veins” and “a spine of steel” fighting a “sexist” President.
Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley continued her book tour Thursday with an appearance on CNN’s The Situation Room and, during an exchange with host Wolf Blitzer about the Trump impeachment, blasted the liberal media for “want[ing] there to be something wrong” found against President Trump. Hilariously, Blitzer countered that his show doesn’t have a bias despite the fact that, hours earlier, he disgraced himself by, aside from continuing to live for impeachment, pressing White House counselor Kellyanne Conway about her marriage.
Moments after President Trump’s Wednesday press conference before a hostile press itching for his impeachment, CNN’s The Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer and chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta preyed on the fact that most people had not read the transcript of the phone call between Trump and the president of Ukraine and blatantly lied about the “favor” Trump asked for.
Immediately following a Tuesday address by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announcing Democrats were moving forward with the impeachment process against President Trump, CNN praised it as a truly “historic” moment. They even went so far as to reassure their tiny audience that the Speaker understood the “utmost gravity” of the situation the country was in, and to not get discouraged by the “circus-like atmosphere” that was to come.
As is usually the case with CNN, hosts are reduced to no more than puppets in Jeffrey Zucker’s play, willfully reading from nearly identical scripts as they peddle their daily doses of venom for not only President Trump, but anyone who stands in the way of their far-left, anti-gun, pro-abortion, and pro-Green New Deal vision (to name a few policies). So for seven hours on Wednesday, CNN’s primetime hosts began each of the ten 2020 Democratic presidential “climate crisis” town halls by asserting that Hurricane Dorian exists because of climate change.
Well, you knew this one was coming. A mere 63 seconds past 5:00 p.m. Eastern and the start of CNN’s seven-hours of town halls on “The Climate Crisis,” Situation Room host and supposedly revered journalist Wolf Blitzer opened this monstrosity of an event by falsely blaming Hurricane Dorian’s entire existence and destruction on climate change.
Despite not having a firm, official count of those injured, the number of gunmen, the types of weapons used, or how the incident started in north Philadelphia, CNN’s The Situation Room engaged Wednesday in truly despicable behavior, using this attack on police officers to promote the need for gun control. They added that such incidents feel like the “new normal” and thus operating on emotion, not facts.
In the aftermath of the mass shooting at a Wal-Mart in El Paso, a number of news shows on ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, and PBS have allowed guests to misleadingly cite gun-friendly Texas's open carry and concealed carry laws to give the impression that El Paso Wal-Mart customers must have been well-armed when they were attacked, thus undermining arguments in favor of allowing customers to bring guns with them.
Less than a day after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was subjected to death threats from protesters outside his home and threatening Twitter hashtags (#MassacreMoscowMitch and #MassacreMitch), two CNN shows downplayed the protesters and one also featured 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bill de Blasio expressing support for one of the hashtags.
