For some time, it’s been evident that much of the liberal media have come down with cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Wednesday’s CNN Tonight showcased how host Don Lemon has been grappling with it. Suffice to say, it’s not going well as he informed viewers that “[o]ur country is in the middle of an extreme crisis, a crisis that threatens our foundation, a crises that threatens the values we all hold — hold dear, a crisis created to blind us to the truth” caused by Trump.
On Sunday’s installment of Showtime’s The Circus, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon was profiled and he lashed out at President Trump as a “racist” and insinuated that Trump’s criticism of him was racially-based. Thankfully, the show also profiled our friends at the Daily Caller and, to the show’s credit, the interviews allowed for Daily Caller personality to offer some excellent points about liberal media bias.
One of CNN’s most blatant hypocrisies is their double standard when it comes slamming Fox News hosts for their relationships with President Trump. This criticism could be valid if those same CNN employees didn’t spend their free time palling around with those out to carve out their pound of flesh. The latest example of this was exposed via a late night tweet from a former aide to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) showing CNN host Don Lemon, among other journalists, having a grand old time with “creepy porn lawyer” Michael Avenatti.
Trump Derangement Syndrome can really take a toll on people. Unfortunately, that was evident on Monday’s CNN Tonight as CNN political analysts and White House Briefing Room rabble-rousers Brian Karem and April Ryan hijacked a segment meant to discuss First Lady Melania Trump’s surgery to whine about the President’s tweeting habits and his refusal to hold press conferences.
Between Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, the media have again shown they are more interested in news that portrays police officers as mistreating suspects than they are in updating viewers with information that counts in the cops' favor. After mostly ignoring Sacramento County's official autopsy of Stephon Clark that contradicts a private autopsy that claimed he was mostly shot by police in the back, all three broadcast networks pounced on a story this week about police officers confronting a black student at Yale University who fell asleep while studying in a common area who turned out to be doing nothing wrong.
As the headline indicated, it’s about time a former Obama official was called on the carpet. Thankfully, CNN political commentator and former George W. Bush special assistant Scott Jennings did that on Tuesday’s CNN Tonight, blasting former Obama National Security Council member-turned CNN national security analyst Samantha Vinograd over her bitterness surrounding President Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.
On Tuesday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of rapper Kanye West recently making a provocative suggestion that black slaves were partially to blame for their own enslavement, liberal CNN political commentator at one point hinted that wearing a pro-Donald Trump MAGA hate was worse than rappers pushing an "F the police" message. He also suggested that it was racist for conservatives to discuss the issue of "black-on-black-crime."
On Thursday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of rapper Kanye West being criticized for praising President Donald Trump, right-leaning CNN political commentator and anti-Trump Republican Tara Setymayer again took shots at black Trump supporters as she brought up the Diamond and Silk conservative duo and derided them as "political minstrels" and a "shuck and jive show."
On Wednesday's CNN Tonight, anchor Don Lemon hosted a segment to discuss the fact that rapper Kanye West has received criticism for praising President Donald Trump. The CNN host even alluded to West's history of accusing President George W. Bush of not caring about black Americans to then suggest that now West may not "care about black people."
On Tuesday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of whether conservative FNC host Sean Hannity should have divulged earlier that he has an association with Donald Trump attorney Michael Cohen, there seemed to be unanimous agreement that Fox News is "not news."
In a podcast posted on Monday, CNN's Don Lemon told National Review's Jamie Weinstein that some pro-Trump panelists on his show have admitted that, in Weinstein's words, "they don't believe what they are saying" — as if knee-jerk leftists never engage in such disingenuous behavior (sure, Don). Lemon apparently has no problem allowing people who have allegedly admitted to this behavior to continue serving as panelists. Lemon's statement is a de facto admission that he and his network are willing to broadcast fake opinions.
On Monday's CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon devoted two segments totaling more than 13 minutes to the case of rapper Meek Mill going back to prison because of parole violations. The show glossed over Mill repeatedly violating probation over the past decade, which included the rapper failing drug tests over and over again. And last week, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt similarly downplayed Mill's parole violations, and did not mention the repeated drug test failures from the probation period at all.
