With less than two hours until the highly anticipated ABC interview between George Stephanopoulos and former FBI Director James Comey, the liberal media was abuzz with speculation and admiration. One of Comey’s loudest supporters was CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter. And amid his lionization of Comey during Sunday night's CNN Newsroom, CNN law enforcement analyst and former FBI Special Agent James Gagliano embarrassed Stelter by calling out Comey for being a “feckless leader.”
On Thursday afternoon, it was no accident that CNN almost universally focused on New Jersey Democratic Senator Cory Booker’s questions for CIA Director Mike Pompeo at his confirmation hearing to oversee the State Department. It was even less of a surprise that the CNN panel gushed over Booker “masterfully” attacking Pompeo in a “tough exchange” about his views on gay sex.
Can anybody remember a time in the past year when CNN's counterterrorism analyst Philip Mudd did not become completely unhinged? When he isn't hurling racial epithets around he has threatened harm upon President Donald Trump. In his latest madman incarnation, Mudd shocked even the CNN Newsroom host John Berman by snapping that Trump is a "dirtbag."
During the 3 P.M. ET Hour of CNN Newsroom Tuesday, CNN analyst Tara Setmayer alleged that President Trump envies Jeff Bezos because he “is the richest man in the world”, described Twitter as a “pacifier” for President Trump and referred to Fox News as a “propaganda channel.”
Using a debunked photo of Parkland student Emma Gonzalez ripping apart the Constitution and a Facebook post from Republican Congressman Steve King (Iowa) as cudgels, CNN Newsroom fill-in host Jim Sciutto and New York Times columnist Charles Blow rallied on Monday afternoon to defend the anti-gun, far-left Parkland students from conservative criticism.
Finally a solid conservative beatdown....on CNN?! During Sunday evening’s CNN Newsroom, Center for American Progress president Neera Tanden was thoroughly trounced by CNN political commentator Scott Jennings for stating that the pro-gun control Parkland students aren’t advocating for gun bans when they’re doing just that.
On Monday's New Day, CNN host Alisyn Camerota finally conducted an interview with liberal gun control activists in a manner that didn't simply give them a forum to push their agenda and make incendiary comments about the NRA and Republicans, but actually spent several questions challenging them for demonizing their opponents. And, over the weekend during live coverage of the March for Our Lives rally, Camerota admitted that she had "mischaracterized" Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio's response to the Parkland school shootings.
Ahead of Saturday’s anti-gun, liberal media-supported March for Our Lives, Friday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom showed just how far left most of the network lies on the spectrum. “Fake news hypocrite” host Brooke Baldwin openly tag-teamed with the Michael Bloomberg-funded, pro-gun control Everytown for Gun Safety for over 14 minutes of discussion with families who’ve lost loved ones to gun violence but now demand gun control.
Here’s your daily reminder of how pathetic CNN has become. On Wednesday morning, pro-Second Amendment Parkland student Kyle Kashuv claimed that his long-awaited CNN interview was canceled just hours beforehand. He said that CNN cited a Clay Travis retweet calling out Brooke Baldwin for being a “fake news hypocrite.” Travis, of course, is the sports commentator who was booted off Baldwin’s CNN Newsroom in September for saying “boobs.”
In a segment that seemed like it was better suited for either the Maury Show or Jerry Springer Show, anchor Brooke Baldwin spent a portion of Tuesday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom flaunting the raunchy details of alleged sexual activity with President Trump by a duo of porn stars. Everything from polygraph tests to alleged unprotected intercourse and alleged proposition for a threesome were laid bare during the program.
In an interview with Maryland Senator and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chair Chris Van Hollen during the 9:00 a.m. ET hour of Friday’s CNN Newsroom, anchor John Berman actually pressed the liberal lawmaker on whether Pennsylvania congressional candidate Conor Lamb’s decision to run against Nancy Pelosi and not attack President Trump would be a model for other Democrats in the 2018 midterm election.
While interviewing Democratic Congressman Gregory Meeks (N.Y.) on Wednesday morning, CNN Newsroom anchor John Berman pressed the Congressman about his past connections with the controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Meeks responded by attacking the news organization that reported Meeks attended a meeting with Farrakhan, The Daily Caller, as a "fringe, right-wing tabloid."
