For the Thursday afternoon’s airing of CNN Newsroom, substitute anchor Pamela Brown hosted a discussion on President Trump’s recent Oval Office interview, in which he stated that he may or may not call the FBI if a foreign entity offered information on a political opponent. In that time, CNN senior Justice correspondent Evan Perez suggested the now-infamous Steele dossier wasn’t foreign interference because it made its way to the FBI. At no point did Perez now it was paid for and intended to be used by the Clinton campaign.
When I appeared on Fox on Friday morning, we talked about how the "news" is too often wild speculation about Trump's doom. This was my example: on Thursday afternoon on CNN's Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin, the host asked legal analyst Renato Mariotti to explain an article he wrote for Politico magazine about how Donald Trump should totally be indicted for crimes if he loses in 2020.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Kellyanne Conway, and Betsey DeVos are some of the most prominent names in the Trump administration. Cue the predictable gasp among liberals in the press, but all of the individuals listed above share the distinction of being female. It leads one to ponder the all-encompassing question of how does a “sexist” President continue to place women in high positions of power?
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has come under fire from the left and the media after he vocalized his support of the Hyde Amendment. The Hyde Amendment, which restricts the use of federal funds on abortions unless it’s in cases of rape, incest, and protecting the life of the mother. Thursday, CNN Newsroom ran a segment on the apparent controversy with CNN chief political correspondent Dana Bash and USA Today columnist Kristen Powers.
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Theresa May held a joint press conference during his state visit to the United Kingdom.

During the 3:00 p.m. hour of Monday's CNN Newsroom, the panel repeatedly compared President Trump to a king as they covered his state visit with Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II. In addition to indulging her guests’ suggestions that the President would like to be a king, host Brooke Baldwin teed up British journalist Harry Mount to trash the President.

On Friday's CNN Newsroom, co-hosts Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto invited Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter on to talk about various media companies threatening that they will cease producing content in Georgia, should that state's pro-life bill become law.
In an especially absurd Thursday morning airing of CNN Newsroom, host Jim Sciutto and CNN senior political analyst John Avlon made a couple leaps of logic, as well as an extremely ironic remark, regarding President Trump and Fox News. This came after a fast and furious “fact-checking” series done after the President told a “flurry of lies” about Mueller, Russia, and the USS John McCain on the White House driveway.
On Wednesday, Special Counsel Robert Mueller held a press conference on the Russia investigation and the subsequent investigation into obstruction of justice. Mueller’s statement wasn’t very revealing, but that didn’t keep the liberal media from declaring President Trump guilty and jumping on the impeachment train yet again.
