CNN claimed after the president's press conference on Friday that their "hearts go out" to "Angel moms," who lost children due to illegal immigrants. But they couldn't stick to empathy. In fact, the words "Angel mom" only emerged on CNN on ten occasions so far in the Trump era. All ten were uttered by the president, his press secretary, or pro-Trump CNN analysts.
In another raucous press conference self-aggrandizing liberal journalist Jim Acosta battled with Donald Trump over the President’s plan to declare a national emergency in order to build a border wall. After Trump told Acosta he was “fake news” and that CNN “has an agenda,” an Angel Mom walked up to the journalist in the Rose Garden and told him about her murdered child.
On Thursday, CNN broke an incredibly startling claim by Michael Avenatti, the former lawyer of adult film star Stormy Daniels, who claimed to possess a tape of R&B singer R. Kelly engaging in sexual acts with an underage girl. Perhaps equally surprisingly CNN host Ana Cabrera claimed some at her network had watched the tape, though she offered no explanation as to how the network had access to it. Cabrera also did mention the LA Times's reporting from earlier that day that Avenatti would be relinquishing control of his law firm after being accused of illegally concealing millions of dollars.
The media are using the one year anniversary of the Parkland, Florida shooting to push for more gun control. It’s something they started doing immediately after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.The following is a collection of the media’s ugliest attacks on gun rights supporters after the Parkland, Florida shooting.
On the one-year anniversary of the Parkland school shootings, CNN anchor Erin Hill gave no pushback on the New Day show after she invited Florida Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Mucarsel-Powell to promote a gun control plan being considered by Congress. The same CNN show that has recently dismissed arguments in favor of border security that could save many lives each year also apparently saw no irony in the congresswoman pulling out the old "if it saves just one life" argument to justify infringing on the rights of law-abiding American citizens to acquire guns.
Appearing on CNN’s The Situation Room Monday, Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) complained that President Trump has made everyone who decides to “cross the border undocumented” into a criminal. Menendez also complained that “if a person has a driving while under the influence violation, he is now making, saying that’s a criminal.” These outrageous statements seemed to fly right over host Wolf Blitzer’s head, as he did not push back on Menendez at all.
Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom to debate whether there is an equivalence between Minnesota Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar blaming Jewish donors for Congress's support of Israel, and past comments made by several Republicans, liberal CNN contributor Peter Beinart smeared Israel by accusing the Jewish state of practicing "state-sponsored bigotry" against Palestinian Arabs in the West Bank and "violating human rights."
The liberal media took another massive blow on Wednesday after an independent investigation found that the high school students of Covington Catholic didn’t harass anyone last month at the Lincoln Memorial. Effectively proving that the liberal media reports about them were smears and lies, all three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) and principal Spanish-language networks (Telemundo and Univision) omitted the findings from their evening reports.
In what was a poorly mangled attempt to be the liberal and unfunny Seth Meyers, CNN’s The Lead host Jake Tapper went on a rant Wednesday in which he pretended to throw fits at his staff for not showing clips and tweets of anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN), but instead ones that painted the Trump administration and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as not only hypocrites but anti-Semites.
Addressing the new “compromise” pertaining to border security, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon reiterated a tired old talking point attempting to smear the wall as racist; arguing that the purpose of the wall is “to blatantly attempt to stir up fear of people of color, of brown people.” He then invoked a phrase used by his colleague, Chris Cuomo, who argues that President Trump is “trying to scare people” by talking about “the brown menace.” Lemon was just warming up; he accused President Trump and Republicans of racism many more times during his opening monologue on Monday’s edition of CNN Tonight.
Wednesday’s New Day on CNN almost managed to close out with a lighthearted piece about the Westminster Dog Show – until the segment devolved into a Trump bash-fest in which correspondent Jeanne Moos compared and contrasted the President with a dog.
On Wednesday's Early Start show, CNN hosts Dave Briggs and Christine Romans appeared amused at a Wall Street Journal editorial attacking conservatives like FNC's Sean Hannity for having success in lobbying President Donald Trump. In the first of four similar briefs that ran during the two-hour morning show, co-host Romans recalled Hannity's recent criticism of the bipartisan deal on border security: "Fox News host and frequent presidential advisor Sean Hannity again blasting the border compromise deal."
