Anderson Cooper 360
In something reminiscent of someone listing off glorifying titles for characters from Game of Thrones, CNN’s post-debate panel of liberals on Anderson Cooper 360 Tuesday marveled at how Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) conducted himself, even while digging himself into a hole by tripling down on his support for communist dictator Fidel Castro.
Arguably, the biggest takeaway from the Democratic debate on Tuesday was that CBS News didn’t know how to moderate. CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell and This Morning co-host Gayle King had almost no control as the debate would often descend into a cacophony of shrieking candidates. Their incompetence was so blatant that the panel on CNN’s AC360 couldn’t help but periodically mock the spectacle. Including one who playfully suggested they “all talk over each other.”
Longtime ABC White House correspondent Sam Donaldson fervently endorsed Michael Bloomberg for the White House on Friday's Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN. The funny part was the journalists pretending Donaldson has never really favored a politician before. Cooper solemnly began: "Sam Donaldson has spent years has a prominent White House correspondent, anchor for ABC News, never strayed from the ethic that journalists should not take sides"!
Moments after Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was declared the winner of New Hampshire’s Democratic primary, CNN’s far-left liberals like host and activist Van Jones were ecstatically gloating about how “this guy is on the march” just like President Trump in 2016. And they didn’t appreciate it when establishment Democrats such as former Obama advisor David Axelrod pumped the bakes by noting how well “moderate” candidates did by comparison.
As the New Hampshire primary results were coming in Tuesday night, showing three candidates with double-digit support and two in the “top tier” barely holding on, CNN’s exclusively liberal panel had fears that the nomination processes would take too long and the candidates would damage each other too extensively.
It’s past midnight and there’s still no official results from the Iowa caucuses and rumors said results wouldn’t be published until the morning. CNN’s patience wore wearing thin late in the 10:00 p.m. hour when their frustrations flashed. They were so desperate for numbers that host and liberal activist Van Jones began reading unverified numbers an apparent caucus secretary had released on Twitter. To that development, the panel fumed.
Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander was the last of four moderate Republicans the liberal media had held out hope for voting to hear more witnesses in the impeachment trial. But shortly after the Senate trial ended the question and answer portion, the Senator made it known he was finished hearing the evidence and was ready to vote. Upon hearing this development, CNNers (particularly those with a connection to Watergate) suffered a collective meltdown.
With fruitless attempts by Senate Democrats to prematurely vote on witnesses and documents for the impeachment trial stretching deep into Tuesday night, something they and the liberal media decried when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) wanted to do it for opening arguments, CNN’s heavily liberal panel praised the Democratic impeachment managers for doing what they were doing.
During Tuesday night’s dinner break in the impeachment trial, CNN put forward a case that January 21, 2020 will be day of infamy for President Trump. AC360 and Erin Burnett OutFront offered guest after guest that not only agreed with one another, but plunged further into political analysis divorced from reality. CNN political analyst and resident drama king Carl Bernstein stated on AC360 at the end of the break that Tuesday “was devastating for the President of the United States both short term and long term.”
On Monday's Anderson Cooper 360, CNN's Gloria Borger filed a pre-recorded report in which she misleadingly portrayed liberal California Democratic Congressman and impeachment manager Adam Schiff as a "moderate" as she recounted his political career. Borger did not clarify that his voting record has never been moderate, and, after his already Democratic district became even more strongly liberal in 2013, Schiff further distanced himself from moderates by resigning from the Blue Dog Coalition.
On Monday's Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN, conservative contributor Rick Santorum was outnumbered on a panel by liberals 5-1 as the group discussed the planned rules for President Donald Trump's impeachment trial in the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate. CNN analysts used words like "farce," "joke," and "atrocity" to complain about the rules.
On Monday's Anderson Cooper 360, CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin declared that President Donald Trump is "guilty," and seemed to worry that Senate Republicans might block the inclusion of witnesses harmful to Trump by demanding the "poisoned pill" of pushing for Hunter Biden to also give testimony.
