CNN's New Day panel twice refers to the Trump White House as a "banana republic." And former Clinton press secretary Joe Lockhart claims that a Washington Post article quoted a "White House official saying on background that 'this is like the Maury show. The only thing we're missing is a paternity test.'" Alisyn Camerota responds: "oh my God." Problems: the article was in Politico, not the Washington Post. And the source wasn't a "White House official on background." It was a former WH official, and thus someone with no current first-hand knowledge.
MSNBC's Morning Joe and CNN's New Day heap praise on Republican Martha McSally for quickly and "gracefully" conceding to Dem Kyrsten Sinema in their Senate race in Arizona. In contrast, the two shows castigated Republican Rick Scott for fighting it out in Florida. Neither network calls on Dems Gillum, Nelson or Abrams to emulate McSally's example.
CNN played a clip of Seth Meyers, from his Late Night show on NBC, saying: "Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is recovering in the hospital after she fell in her office and fractured three ribs. Wow: if you had told me a Supreme Court Justice fell over and broke some ribs, I would have bet on the new guy." Late Night then cut to a clip of Kavanaugh saying "I like beer."
On Tuesday's New Day show, as CNN's Alisyn Camerota debated the ACU's Matt Schlapp on border security, the liberal host made her latest claim that immigrants who cross the border without permission are not really breaking they law as long as they seek asylum afterwards. Schlapp tried to school the liberal host on the importance of putting immigrants through a background check system rather than let them sneak into the country unchecked.
On a special Sunday edition of Cuomo Prime Time, as CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon fretted over President Donald Trump sending troops to the southern border, and the possiblity that armed militias will also go into the area, to ward off the caravan of illegal immigrants, Cuomo actually suggested against all evidence that illegal immigrants are less inclined to commit crimes than legal immigrants, in addition to U.S. citizens.
On Friday morning, as CNN's New Day show tried to prove that President Donald Trump was spreading misinformation about an illegal immigrant who murdered two police officers, CNN host Alisyn Camerota and CNN analyst John Avlon contradicted each other in the same show regarding who was President when he first entered the country as the two also ignored the possibility that liberal policies in places like California and Salt Lake City might have helped him avoid capture and deportation for many years in spite of many arrests.
Great news that will save us billions of dollars! We can do away with our entire criminal justice system! All we need to do is bring Jorge Ramos, the Amazing Criminal Detector Man, into our courtrooms to point out the innocent and the guilty! CNN's New Day opens each hour with a montage of short clips. Today's 6 AM clip included the faceless voice of Ramos:
On Thursday's New Day, during her latest voter panel discussion, CNN host Alisyn Camerota misleadingly hinted that immigrants like members of the current caravan are not actually breaking the law by crossing the border without permission as long as they request asylum after they are apprehended.
On CNN, Alisyn Camerota lumps President Trump with the accused Pittsburgh mass murderer. Regarding migrants, Camerota says Trump is, "frankly, I have to say it, using some of the same language that the mass murderer at the synagogue used . . . It's hard for him to celebrate his narrative of vilifying migrants when, again, the alleged mass murderer did the same thing."
In the aftermath of Saturday’s synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, liberal cable hosts hurried to place blame for the shooter’s actions at the feet of conservative media outlets, on the grounds that they had recklessly “radicalized” the American right. Whether unwittingly or otherwise, the left-wing pundit class have crafted their own “enemy of the people” narrative — one which endeavors to hold purveyors of right-wing talking points responsible for the senseless slaughter of eleven civilians.
During Tuesday’s edition of CNN's New Day, media critic Brian Stelter compiled a report suggesting that Fox News bears responsibility for the massacre at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh over the weekend. It looks like this has become the new normal on CNN; Stelter and his panel made the exact same point on Reliable Sources just 48 hours earlier.
It was quite the scene on Monday’s New Day as the panel of CNN analysts and hosts continued the liberal media drumbeat to try and (at least culturally) criminalize and ostracize conservative speech as the root of evil, demanding Fox News be punished and the President be condemned for his “racist dog whistles” against the caravan. All told, they deemed “right-wing terrorism” as responsible for the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting.
