CNN’s Don Lemon was hardly an outlier among his colleagues in the media when he rejoiced in former White House Counsel John Dean’s comparisons of the Watergate scandal to the Mueller report during an appearance on Capitol Hill. However, Lemon differentiated himself from the others in the media by complaining that media coverage of a helicopter crash in New York City eclipsed coverage of Dean’s testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee Monday.
During his opening monologue Tuesday night, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon echoed the talking points of ABC News, which accused the President of “siding with a murderous dictator” by agreeing with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un’s description of Former Vice President Joe Biden as a “low I.Q. individual.” He also tried to shame voters thinking of voting for President Trump because of the strong economy despite his behavior.
Remember, folks, CNN wants you to think that CNN Tonight’s Don Lemon is merely a “CNN anchor” and an objective journalist instead of a left-wing pundit. Keep that in mind as, while opening Wednesday’s show, he gloated about how the President’s suffering a “losing streak” to the point that he put on an “embarrassing” performance in the Rose Garden.
In the recent aftermath of the trial in which former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor was convicted of killing an unarmed white woman, Justine Damond, after she called 9-1-1 in July 2017 to report a possible crime, CNN showed its double standard in attention given to alleged police misconduct based on the race of the victim.
Opening Wednesday's CNN Tonight, the horribly biased Don Lemon pondered: “Why this President loves to surround himself with strong men, with dictators?” Naturally, Lemon proceeded to criticize Trump for meeting with dictators, apparently forgetting that President Obama attended a baseball game with Cuban dictator Raul Castro while administration officials had numerous meetings with Iranians. Lemon went further by saying that President Trump wants to “follow their lead” by acting like a king.
CNN hosts and guests reacted with glee when The New York Times published tidbits about President Trump’s tax returns from 1985 to 1994. CNN Tonight host Don Lemon branded the President “our con man in chief” while The Art of the Deal co-author Tony Schwartz slammed him as a “sociopath.”
Following the GLAAD Media L.A. awards show in March, the gay entertainment lobby hosted another evening in New York City to ensure that several other of the culture’s most putrid influencers wouldn’t go without their LGBTQ advocacy trophies.
CNN really wants you to take them seriously as a news organization, but it’s infinitely more difficult when they keep on inviting proven fake news anchors such as Dan Rather to opine on the day’s news like they did on Tuesday’s CNN Tonight. Host Don Lemon again thought it was worth inviting on “Mr. Rather” to bash the President as a liar and demand more transparency from the Justice Department concerning the Mueller report. And no, you can’t make this stuff up.
The Sunday afternoon letter from Attorney General Bill Barr on the Mueller report has rocked the political world and burst more than a few bubbles in the liberal media, most notably their years-long insistence that the President and/or his team colluded with Russia. Some journalists have conceded this reality, while others are mimicking Japanese soldiers still fighting World War II in 1971.
Minutes after news broke of a tragic shooting in at least one mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand during the second hour of CNN Tonight, Intercept columnist Mehdi Hasan claimed that “far-right terrorism” was on the rise in the United States and blamed President Trump for attacks both here and abroad.
To close out Wednesday’s CNN Tonight, fill-in host Erin Burnett, a CNN correspondent, and two panelists spent over 10 minutes trying to muddy the waters on anti-Semitism, downplaying Minnesota Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s long history of anti-Semitic comments because the President’s Charlottesville comments and white supremacists are the ones worth denouncing (instead of both). So, in other words, Orange Man Bad.
In the aftermath of the House of Representatives passing two Democratic-supported gun control bills that expand background check requirements to private purchases and transfers, and lengthens the allowed background check period, CNN and MSNBC have been celebrating by having liberal guests come on their shows and going along with their gun control myths without any conservative guests to counter them.
