Anderson Cooper 360
While some in the cable news media have been direct and professional in their calls for Virginia Democratic Governor Ralph Northam to resign (with others ghoulishly connecting Northam to, among others, the Covington kids and Justice Kavanaugh), CNN briefly mislabled Northam Friday night as a Republican while airing video of his so-called apology for his racist medical school yearbook page.
In contrast to the broadcast networks, CNN, and MSNBC ignoring radical pro-abortion comments by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D), a look at the Fox News Channel programs in that span (The Story, Tucker Carlson Tonight, Hannity, The Ingraham Angle, and Fox News @ Night) yielded 67 minutes and 23 seconds of coverage on not only Northam’s comments, unsuccessful attempts by Virginia Democrats to pass a late-term abortion bill, and how New York was able to push through such a law last week.
After news broke around 6:30 p.m. Eastern on Monday that four narcotics officers were shot while trying to serve a warrant in Houston, over the next 24 hours, the three broadcast networks, CNN and Fox News Channel all gave substantial attenton to the story. But MSNBC has so far only given the dramatic event a total of 91 seconds in spite of being a 24-hour cable news channel.
CNN viewers are used to a narcissist spectacle on almost daily basis in White House reporter Jim Acosta. Former ABC White House reporter Sam Donaldson, whose liberal bluster is surely an Acosta inspiration, has come to Acosta's defense. So it was a little funny for Donaldson to come on CNN Wednesday night and slam President Trump and his top aide Kellyanne Conway as "narcissists" who love the spotlight and don't mind "trashing anyone." Reporters are not good at self-reflection.
During Monday’s edition of Anderson Cooper 360, the eponymous host and his panel engaged in a lengthy discussion about whether or not President Trump was a racist. One of the panelists, Charles Blow of The New York Times, used his platform to compare President Trump to white supremacist David Duke, arguing that his unsuccessful bid to become Governor of Louisiana in 1991 served as a “blue print for how the present GOP is running on a policy level.”
Thursday was the first day that Jeffrey Toobin claims he thought that President Trump would not finish his term. Or at least it was the first time Toobin had that thought since September, when he announced that a Trump tweet was an impeachable offense. What drove Toobin to repeat his fantasy on Anderson Cooper 360 on Thursday was Michael Cohen claiming he was lying when he testified to Congress about the time frame of Trump conducting perfectly legal business negotiations with Russians.
After being arrested on felony domestic violence charges last week, there was a new chapter in the saga of Michael Avenatti’s alleged abuse late Monday night when news broke that New York actress Mareli Miniutti had filed a domestic violence restraining order against him. Both CNN and MSNBC couldn’t be bothered to mention the development on air that night.
For all of the characters that make up the Jeffrey Zucker-led circus at CNN, perhaps no one speaks in hyperbole more than longtime liberal journalist and CNN analyst Carl Bernstein. In separate appearances Wednesday night and Thursday morning, Bernstein reacted to the firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions by calling it a “coup” by “a rageaholic President...who has no understanding of the importance and primacy and rule of law in our system.”
Just over an hour after CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta had his White House credentials suspended in light of his latest act of showboating, AC360 gave him a hero’s welcome while CNN argued in a statement that “this unprecedented is a threat to our democracy” while Acosta asserted that “they’re trying to — to shut us down.”
En su afán por promover la causa de las caravanas de extranjeros que actualmente se dirigen hacia los Estados Unidos, el presentador de noticias en Univisión Jorge Ramos, enfatiza la presencia de niños, restado importancia a los delincuentes e integrantes de otros países fuera de Centro América, mientras también evita mencionar que la gran mayoría de las personas en las caravanas tiene pocas posibilidades de calificar para asilo político en los Estados Unidos.
On a special Sunday edition of Cuomo Prime Time, as CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon fretted over President Donald Trump sending troops to the southern border, and the possiblity that armed militias will also go into the area, to ward off the caravan of illegal immigrants, Cuomo actually suggested against all evidence that illegal immigrants are less inclined to commit crimes than legal immigrants, in addition to U.S. citizens.
Hillary Clinton might want to watch the video of a CNN interview with a panel of Democrat voters in Florida. If she somehow still has some notion of running for president again in 2020, their reaction to the idea of her campaigning in the Sunshine State for Democrat candidate Andrew Gillum might disabuse her of that idea.
As you can see in this episode of Anderson Cooper 360 on Tuesday most of those on the panel were strenuously opposed to her campaigning in Florida. In fact they make it quite plain that they are NOT with her.
