Anderson Cooper 360
With The Washington Post publishing select excerpts of a letter Special Counsel Robert Mueller purportedly sent to Attorney General William Barr expressing some level of displeasure with the original four-page memo to Congress, CNN was off to the races on Tuesday night with all sorts of speculation and doom and gloom soothsaying at it pertained to the fate of the AG.
“[T]he Special Counsel did not find that any U.S. person or Trump campaign official or associate conspired or knowingly coordinated with the [Russians] in [their] efforts…” That’s what Attorney General William Barr wrote in his letter to Congress summarizing the Mueller report. Yet, despite the facts compiled after two years of investigations, CNN continues to breathlessly push conspiratorial accusations of collusion between President Trump and Russia.
Throughout the morning on Friday, CNN repeatedly tied the mosque shooting in New Zealand to President Trump. This type of coverage continued well into the primetime hours; with guests on Anderson Cooper 360 comparing President Trump to a white supremacist as well as the shooter that killed dozens of Muslims in New Zealand.
On Wednesday's Anderson Cooper 360, host Cooper devoted 16 minutes of his show to trashing Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen over her congressional testimony as he also brought on New York Democratic Congresswoman Kathleen Rice as a guest to join in on the bashing.
On Tuesday night, CNN host Anderson Cooper pushed a new poll from Quinnipiac University that asked respondents if they believed President Donald Trump had committed crimes before he became president, and if he had committed crimes after he became president.
For all the liberal media’s prior pontifications about Wednesday being a “split screen” between two major events for President Trump, the congressional testimony of his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen and the denuclearization summit with North Korea, they were sure to only give the latter just a few pixels.
Univision News anchor and hardcore liberal Jorge Ramos appeared Tuesday night on CNN’s AC360 and FNC’s Hannity to discuss his brief detainment in Venezuela by the murderous Nicolas Maduro regime after Ramos confronted Maduro in an interview with video of young men eating out of a garbage truck in Caracas. In the case of Sean Hannity and Ramos, the pair have had their fair share of on-air duels about illegal immigration, but Hannity made clear that this was bigger than debating American politics and instead good versus evil.
Seemingly following the example set by his fellow CNN hosts, Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon, host Anderson Cooper ended Thursday’s edition of AC360 by venting his nonsensical anger at a fundraising e-mail sent by the Trump campaign. The e-mail, meant to drive engagement with Trump supporters, led people to the “Official State of the Union Approval Poll” and the answers for the parody poll have had CNN liberals in a tailspin.
CNN political director David Chalian reprised his State of the Union analysis from 2018 by, once again, discrediting CNN’s own poll numbers showing an overwhelmingly positive response to President Trump’s Tuesday address.“So I just want to stress here, for a State of the Union address, the President's partisans, his supporters tend to turn out to watch the speech. This is true of a president of either party,” he warned viewers after also noting the poll was only of people who actually watched the speech.
Despite a CBS News/You Gov poll showing 76 percent of viewers approving of President Trump’s Tuesday State of the Union address, CNN chief national correspondent John King blasted the speech as a “disgrace” because it didn’t touch on topics important to liberals. Most notably, according to King, climate change.
With a stacked panel of liberals, CNN was firing on all cylinders as the network for The Resistance on Tuesday night ahead of the President’s State of the Union address. In conjunction with that, AC360 featured a soft interview by chief political correspondent Dana Bash of liberal firebrand and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her guest/far-left activist who was caught on CNN cameras in the fall berating then-Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ).
During Friday’s AC360, the eponymous host and his panel reacted to the breaking news of the evening surrounding Virginia’s Democratic Governor Ralph Northam and a racist yearbook photo from his medical shool. Not surprisingly, Democratic Strategist Bakari Sellers condemned Northam and called on him to resign. But he also used the opportunity to lump in Northam with the kids at Covington Catholic High School, who faced accusations of racism later proven unwarranted.
