CNN’s New Day on Friday promoted the gushy new HBO documentary on John McCain, with substitute host David Briggs lamenting that President Trump “perpetuated...that John McCain is in a sense almost a traitor to the Republican Party.” Peter Kunhardt, the HBO film’s creator, bizarrely claimed the hallmark of McCain’s career is “the consistency of his message.” But he also said the “culmination” of the film is McCain flip-flopping on the repeal of Obamacare.
Wednesday saw the latest edition of CNN’s New Day co-host Chris Cuomo throwing down with Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan as the topics du jour featured calls for a second special counsel, Russian collusion, and a Thursday meeting of congressional Republicans having access to some of the most sensitive documents related to the Trump-Russia probe.
Appearing on CNN’s New Day on Tuesday to promote his new book on presidential impeachment, left-wing Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe warned Democrats against being too quick to call for President Trump’s impeachment. He argued that they should wait for “overwhelming” bipartisan consensus on the issue and proclaimed: “If you’re going to shoot him, you’ve got to shoot to kill.”
On Monday's Erin Burnett Outfront, and again on Tuesday's New Day, CNN ran a full report which devoted more than twice as much time to the more liberal candidate, Stacey Abrams, who is competing in Georgia's Democratic primary for governor without mentioning the GOP candidates at all. Additionally, the report left the impression that Abrams was not allowed to attend an event at the governor's mansion in 1991 because she was black even though, in fact, she was allowed into the event after the guest list was checked.
On Monday, even liberal CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, an ardent gun control advocate, acknowledged that Friday’s school shooting at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas didn’t fit the media’s usual anti-gun narrative. “This case in Santa Fe doesn’t set up great for the gun debate, by the way,” the New Day host fretted.
During Thursday's edition of New Day, Never Trumper and CNN political commentator Ana Navarro expressed her disdain for President Trump's “dehumanizing” comments referring to MS-13 gang members as “animals.” She apparently expected the American public to have a short memory, as Navarro herself had referred to then-candidate Trump as an “animal” in 2016.
During an interview with President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani on Friday’s New Day, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo feared that the administration may throw him and other journalists in jail for reporting on leaks about the Russia investigation. Giuliani dismissed the melodramatic fretting and even jokingly offered to serve as Cuomo’s legal counsel.
An irritated Chris Cuomo on Wednesday bizarrely scoffed at the idea that keeping the illegal immigrant killer of Kate Steinle out of the country would have saved the young woman’s life. Cuomo also derided talking in a way that painted Jose Ines Garcia Zarate and others as monsters. While discussing Trump administration efforts to thwart illegal immigration, Cuomo complained: “But Kate Steinle has always been a gross misappropriation of the tragedy that ended her life. It doesn't meet with the facts of the situation.”
On Wednesday's New Day, CNN was doing its part to push anti-Israel spin as co-host Chris Cuomo not only called the killing of Palestinian Arab agitators by the Israeli Defense Forces an "atrocity," but correspondent Ben Wedeman pushed the view that the IDF did not act with "restraint."
During a discussion on Tuesday’s edition of CNN’s New Day about whether the Trump administration should publicly apologize for the comment made by White House aide Kelly Sadler that Senator John McCain is dying of cancer, a clash arose between faux Republican and CNN political commentator Ana Navarro and Women Vote Trump co-chair Amy Kremer.
On Tuesday's New Day, CNN political analyst David Gregory again showed himself to be one of the very few journalists in the liberal media who will actually make an effort to inform viewers of Palestinian intransigence and hostility toward the existence of a Jewish state in the Middle East. As he substitute hosted the show and interviewed former PLO official Diana Buttu about the violent protests in Gaza, Gregory repeatedly brought up Hamas's desire to take over Israel rather than co-exist.
On Monday's New Day on CNN, during a discussion of the day's upcoming relocation of the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv to Israel's capital, Jerusalem, CNN host and plagiarist Fareed Zakaria repeatedly fretted over President Donald Trump not demanding that Israel make concessions to Palestinian Arabs in exchange for recognizing the Jewish state's capital.
