Appearing on Saturday's CNN Newsroom and again on New Day Sunday to discuss the international summit on global warming, CNN correspondent Nick Paton Walsh repeatedly fearmongered about the possibility of "catastrophe" in a decade if "drastic" changes are not taken to combat global warming.
CNN’s Jim Sciutto was one of the many journalists this week who attacked President Trump’s comments about border security during his meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer Tuesday. Sciutto even did a whole segment “fact-checking” the president on Wednesday’s CNN Newsroom. Unfortunately for him, actual experts from DHS called out his reporting on Twitter with a brutal comeback.
On Monday morning, CNN anchors bemoaned the Trump administration's decision to reject the findings of an international report on global warming, as the news network also devoted time to blaming manmade global warming for recent drought and wildfires in California.
On Sunday evening, CNN Newsroom ran a full report in which correspondent Drew Griffin bemoaned EPA acting head Andrew Wheeler's efforts to cut regulations, as well his past ties to the coal industry and his work for Republican Senator James Inhofe, whom Griffin derided as a "climate change denier."
Former Obama administration official and host Jim Sciutto fretted we could all face a slow torturous death because the Trump administration’s dismissal of a recent apocalyptic climate change report. Sciutto shared his worries with his guest, a geology professor on Wednesday’s CNN Newsroom.
On Tuesday, CNN’s New Day hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota brandished a decision by a California judge that temporarily halted President Trump’s recent executive action on asylum. Yet back in 2012 when it was former President Obama’s DACA order on the chopping block, hosts on CNN rushed to defend the President’s ability to enact immigration policy without Congressional approval.
Not surprisingly, CNN was in an exuberant mood on Friday morning after federal judge Timothy Kelley ordered their chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta to have his White House press credentials restored following the Trump administration’s decision on November 7 to yank his pass following yet another act of showboating by Acosta hours earlier at a White House press conference.
On Saturday afternoon, CNN Newsroom gave attention to a Johns Hopkins Hospital trauma surgeon who has been criticizing the NRA, but the liberal news network, even while interviewing him, did not divulge that he is a board member of the anti-gun Brady Campaign.
As Newsbusters has previously reported, the CBS Evening News was the only one of Thursdays evening’s news broadcasts to mention an Antifa mob showing up at Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s house in the northwestern quadrant of Washington, D.C. Wednesday evening, shouting threats and vandalizing his driveway. On CNN and MSNBC, only one program on Thursday even bothered to mention the assault: CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin. Most other cable news programs devoted their airtime to pushing for gun control and losing their minds over President Trump’s nomination of Matthew Whitaker as Acting Attorney General.
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.”
After Wednesday’s free-wheeling and tense White House press conference, CNN went on the offensive against President Trump, illustrating a level of self-centeredness that’s unrivaled in the media and showing petty levels of emotion on-set reacting to the President’s condemnations and tense exchanges with chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta, political analyst April Ryan, and PBS’s Yamiche Alcindor.
To put it simply, CNN is lying to its viewers whenever folks like Ana Navarro are presented as a “Republican strategist.” The Jeffrey Zucker-led circus did just that on Monday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom as the panel giggled and marveled at Navarro’s turn to the left offering childish insults about Republicans and vote for Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum.
