Late in Tuesday’s AC360, former Republican National Committee (RNC) official and CNN political commentator Mike Shields unloaded on his fellow panelists and the news media at large for failing to connect with Americans outside the Washington D.C. area.


If the Trump-Russia news frenzy has shown us anything, it is the hypocrisy of the left. Wednesday evening, CNN political commentator and former Clinton official Paul Begala took things to DEFCON 1 on Anderson Cooper 360.


Appearing as a guest on Monday's Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN, New York Times columnist Tom Friedman tagged President Donald Trump as a "chump" who has been "manipulated" by Russia and "played" by China. He even oddly lumped in Israel as a country that has "manipulated" President Trump.

 


Everyone who watched the recent Project Veritas video of Van Jones clearly heard him say that "the Russia thing is just a big nothing burger." However, Van Jones appeared on the June 29 Anderson Cooper 360 show to declare that we misinterpreted what he was saying. Jones spun it that what he meant was that the hope for impeachment of President Donald Trump based on the proofless charge of collusion with Russia in the 2016 election was the real "nothing burger."

Here is Van Jones as he spin, spin, spins:


CNN hosts once again trotted out Jeffrey Toobin, their left-wing political commentator dressed up as a legal analyst, to trash Republicans. Toobin on Thursday expressed his frustration that the media is being distracted by Trump’s tweets when they could be talking about the horrors of the GOP health bill.


Anderson Cooper wore his bias on his sleeve in a recent interview with former Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Cooper brought Bloomberg on his show June 20, to discuss his new coal documentary and failed to challenge him about the millions the billionaire politician spent to shut down coal plants.


This week, the Media Research Center posted a study of one CNN day showing that the network is obsessed with President Trump and that the overwhelming majority of CNN’s experts opining on Trump are highly negative. CNN’s rare allowance of pro-Trump voices often come from commentators they pay to defend Trump. So why insult them when that’s what you pay them to do?

On his primetime show Friday night, Anderson Cooper interrupted one of Jeffrey Lord's defenses of Trump night by saying "if he took a dump on his desk, you would defend it." Lord laughed and just kept making his point. Earth to Cooper: You’re paying him to defend Trump.


After a whirlwind week in Washington, D.C. with the liberal media pouncing on every Trump news development as if it was the final nail in his presidency, CNN’s ‘ridiculous figure’ Brian Stelter and Anderson Cooper attacked conservative media for not sharing their excitement. “Downplay, deflect and deny. Conservative media types are at it again, whipping up alternative theories to explain away the threat that James Comey poses to President Trump,” Stelter chastised on Anderson Cooper 360 Thursday night. 


On Tuesday’s Anderson Cooper 360, CNN senior political commentator and former presidential adviser David Gergen warned that “we are in impeachment territory for the first time” in light of The New York Times report about the Jim Comey memo in which President Trump allegedly asked him to end the Mike Flynn investigation.


All the media could talk about Tuesday night was how President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. As unfounded speculation about Trump’s assumed guilt swirled, CNN political commentator David Gregory was in a visible rage over the whole ordeal. At the end of the eight o’clock hour, he declared that the firing was a display Trump’s “disdain” for the rule of law. But what was on full display was Gregory’s disdain for the Trump administration


Following President Trump’s unusual comments about President Andrew Jackson being able to stop the Civil War, the media was all abuzz trying to figure out what he meant by it. During CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 Monday night, commenter Jeffrey Lord explained that Trump might have been attracted to Jackson’s economic populism, but Lord condemned Jackson’s racism. He also reminded viewers that it was Democrats who backed slavery and racism. That didn’t sit well with New York Times columnist Charles Blow, who proceeded to rail against Republicans. 


Barack Obama isn’t even in office anymore but Democrats are still pining for their long lost savior. Liberal commentator and former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus, Angela Rye bemoaned this fact on Anderson Cooper 360 Monday night. After discussing Congressman Devin Nunes’ comments about the investigation into Trump’s wiretapping claims, Rye expressed outrage that the media wasn’t talking about other issues, instead of talking about “something that didn’t happen.”
