Published on Wednesday, the latest edition of National Review Online’s The Jamie Weinstein Show podcast featured a lively, hour-plus conversation with CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter. The full podcast is highly recommended as Stelter delved into his upbringing and his (sadly, wrong) views about media bias in addition so solid, universal career advice.
Chris Cillizza, a member of the fake news organization CNN that has turned itself into a resistance network, hailed Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for going full political against President Donald Trump. This is part of the general idolatry of Ginsburg which peaks on Labor Day with the CNN Films paean to Ginsburg, "RBG."
Although President Donald Trump has been in office for less that two years, many of those afflicted with extreme Trump Derangement Syndrome are already fantasizing about his exit from office. Among those is Georgetown University law professor Joshua A. Geltzer whose TDS fantasy about Trump's departure is notable for the fact that it is coated in several thick layers of unadulterated smug.
Making his second Fox Business Network appearance on Wednesday, Media Research Center president Brent Bozell eviscerated CNN on The Evening Edit for “nationally lying to the American people” concerning their Trump Tower story. The CNN reporting has taken a huge hit since Monday’s revelation that Michael Cohen attorney Lanny Davis was CNN’s source and the August 22 bombshell that his client didn’t actually know whether Donald Trump had advance knowledge of the Trump Tower meeting.
Many reputable journalists have been left scratching their heads by CNN’s botched handling of their increasingly dubious report claiming then-candidate Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting in advance. Despite their sources (Michael Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis) retreating from his original claims, CNN continued to stand by their assertions while other news outlets cried uncle. And after President Trump mocked one of the reporters of the claim, the network lashed out.
In contrast to CNN's weasel attempt on Tuesday to absolve themselves of their increasingly-dubious Trump Tower story, CBS updated their own CBSNews.com post and NBC’s Hallie Jackson wrote a piece explaining the change at NBCNews.com. For ABCNews.com, they did next to nothing by instead relying on an Associated Press wire story about Davis’s flip-flopping. However, none acknowledged on-air the changes despite 39 minutes 23 seconds of coverage one their morning and evening newscasts from July 27-31.
A week after Michael Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis blew a massive hole in their reporting and nearly a day after he admitted he was their anonymous source, CNN’s Jim Sciutto and Carl Bernstein finally got around to answering the mounting questions surrounding their increasingly dubious about claims the President knew the Trump Tower meeting in advance. Despite their key source’s public retreat, CNN continued to stand by their reporting.
Last Tuesday, the Democrats and many of their mainstream media allies went into a state of jubilation at the thought that impeachment of President Donald Trump could be imminent in the wake of the court convictions of Paul Manafort and the guilty pleas of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen. However, CNN legal analyst Paul Callan tossed cold water on these celebrations with a few reality checks that they definitely won't be thrilled to hear.
It was bad enough when the networks attempted to hide the Islamic extremist beliefs of the suspects in the New Mexico compound that the FBI raided a few weeks ago for kidnapping and killing a 3-year-old boy, or when AP tried to spin the story as a gun problem. Now CNN’s trying to beat them all with the worst take, actually spinning the true villain of the story as “Islamophobia.”
On Thursday, the “big three” morning and evening network newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC failed to inform their viewers that Michael Cohen did not actually know whether then-candidate Donald Trump had a heads-up on the infamous Trump Tower when media reports starting on July 26 originally claimed otherwise. This massive correction by Cohen lawyer Lanny Davis was ignored on the networks despite the fact that the original claim fetched 28 minutes and 29 seconds of coverage on their July 27 morning and evening newscasts.
Brian Stelter just can’t help himself, desperately going after his competitors over on Fox News Channel for getting more interviews with the President than his network ever will. The bitter CNN host and senior media correspondent attacked Fox and Friends host Ainsley Earhardt on Twitter, for her interview with President Trump that aired this morning and blew up the media today for the President’s comments on the Manafort trial and whether or not he could be impeached. But Stelter was more outraged by the Fox News host’s interview style, heckling her in a tweet and a blog post about her “softball” questions to Trump. Unfortunately for Stelter, he doesn’t have the greatest record on giving hard hitting interviews with Democrats
