HLN (formerly CNN Headline News)
Normally, HLN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered can be counted on to push back against the liberal media when they get stirred up into one of their nonsensical frenzies with the most recent case being the gun control debate. But on Tuesday, Cupp parroted the CNN company line by condemning Sinclair Broadcast Group as nothing more than state-owned propaganda. She even took it a step farther and compared them to Heaven’s Gate suicide cult.
Recently, Connecticut Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty was exposed for shielding and supporting her former chief of staff, Tony Baker after he was accused of sexual harassment and threatening the life of another staffer. This story was first published online late last Thursday and appeared on the front page of The Washington Post the following day. The liberal major network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) ignored those revelations then, and on Monday they ignored Esty announcing that she would not seek re-election.
HLN conservative S.E. Cupp has been on a roll this week with her show (S.E. Cupp Unfiltered) drawing attention to the media’s massive liberal bias. First, a CNN host admitted he let an anti-gun teen get away with falsehoods, then she and her panel tore into the media for unfairly smearing Trump’s recent hires as unqualified talking heads. On Thursday, she ratcheted up the criticism by calling them out for being hostile to conservative views and hiring ones whose principles were squishy.
In what appeared to be a shot across the bow of their parent network CNN on Tuesday, the panel on HLN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered slammed media outlets who discredited President Trump’s new White House hires because they spent time on cable news. “So is the media smearing the President's pick just to beat up on Trump or are these TV talking heads actually dangerous,” conservative host S.E. Cupp wondered.
It’s not often that CNN media reporter Brian Stelter is honest about his blatant biases when it comes to politics, just take his assertions about the President’s mental fitness and his denials of making such connections. But during an appearance on the Monday edition of HLN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered, the Reliable Sources host appeared to let it slip that he let radical anti-gun activist David Hogg get away with making false claims about the guns and the NRA during a February 25 interview on his show.
In the wake of the Parkland school shooting, Florida liberals pushed a gun control bill they claimed was specifically to ban AR-15s and other military-looking weapons. The legislation was lauded by the liberal media, and when the Republican-controlled legislature voted not to have a debate on the bill, they went gaga over images of crying teens. But the panel on HLN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered read through the bill, and on Monday, they announced that it was designed to ban even hunting weapons.
On Thursday’s edition of HLN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered, host S.E. Cupp and her panel continued their multipart deep dive conversation to try and get to a solution for gun crime and mass shootings. The day’s conversation entailed the role of the media and whether or not they were helping the situation. Included on the panel was CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter and while he was defending media advocacy and their “humility” he was embarrassingly schooled for it.
HLN conservative host S.E. Cupp followed up her masterful takedown of self-righteous journalists who become anti-gun activists, last Thursday, by using the opening monologue of Tuesday’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered to call out disingenuous gun grabbers for lying about their intentions. “There is nothing more disingenuous than the idea that no one is talking about banning guns,” Cupp declared.
Just as his National Review colleague Rich Lowry did on Thursday night, senior political correspondent Jim Geraghty held his own on Tuesday against liberal HLN host Carol Costello and liberal talk radio host Bill Press in a heated debate about gun control and the left’s asinine rhetoric that gun rights supporters are “child killers.”
In a serious and pointed opening monologue during her Thursday show on HLN, conservative host S.E. Cupp scolded the liberal media, including allusions to her network (CNN) for shunning serious discussion and understanding of guns and gun owners for unbridled political activism.“I do know that there isn’t likely a law, existing or imagined, that would have prevented it. Anyone who says otherwise is not being honest with you,” she began her media rebuke.
So-called fact-checking website PolitiFact proved just how much of a hack organization they were on Thursday when they announced that they were hiring former Florida Congressmen David Jolly (R) and the infamous Alan Grayson (D). The backlash was swift and came from across the political spectrum, especially for Greyson. The backlash was even present on HLN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered where Cupp and TV’s Andy Levy hilariously mocked the “fact-checker” for hiring the “Archduke” of lying.
Conservative HLN host, S.E. Cupp kicked off her Monday evening show, S.E. Cupp Unfiltered. with a stinging denouncement of “the latest feeble attempt by [Hillary] Clinton to stay relevant” and her “glomming” onto the #MeToo movement. Cupp also took the failed presidential candidate to task for never being able to take a proper stand against sexual harassers when it really counted, like with her husband and her campaign staff.
