During a CNN New Day discussion of the pending Senate impeachment trial on New Year's Eve, substitute host Poppy Harlow managed to work in a snide Merrick Garland shot at Mitch McConnell.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has a wide berth to delay her supposedly "urgent" impeachment articles for weeks or even months, knowing the press will back her. Exhibit A is CNN's Alisyn Camerota. The New Day co-host made an impassioned defense this morning of Pelosi's decision to stall the delivery to the Senate of the articles of impeachment. After Camerota made her initial pitch for Pelosi's position, guest host John Avlon and Washington Post reporter Seung Min Kim pushed back, saying Pelosi's position wasn't tenable and that she'd have to deliver the articles in fairly short order.
It's one of the oldest moves in the liberal media's playbook: trying to pass off liberal Democrat candidates as "moderates." CNN played the game this morning . . . but an interesting Democrat actually reminded viewers of the truth: that the so-called "moderates" are actually to the left of where Barack Obama was when he first ran for president.
CNN's Jeffrety Toobin refuses to believe the results of CNN's own poll, showing a rather dramatic drop in Democrat support for impeachment: from 90% down to 77%. Here was poor Jeffrey, in the depths of denial: "I don’t believe that poll for one second, the 90 to 77%. I don’t believe it. It makes no sense that that number would change like that . . . David, that poll is wrong. Just because I said so, okay?"
Seeing as how CNN’s existence can be boiled down to gaslighting Americans by deeming most everything President Trump and those not in the Resistance utter as conspiracy theories, perhaps CNN should look itself in the mirror. On Monday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, host Brooke Baldwin entertained a wild conspiracy theory about not holding a Senate impeachment trial.
In the past week, in the aftermath of the shooting attack that killed three U.S. Navy sailors on a military base in Pensacola, Florida, Fox News Channel's Fox & Friends show has given substantial attention to the problem of most troops not being allowed to carry weapons on base. In several segments this week, the show highlighted the views of several Navy troops who are speaking out on the issue.
On CNN's New Day Saturday, co-host Victor Blackwell devoted a segment to lamenting the absence of competitive minority candidates on the Democratic side in the presidential race, and the possibility that only white candidates will qualify for the next debate. He even allowed a liberal guest to blame President Donald Trump for Democrats being hesitant to vote for a candidate who is not a white male.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is receiving rave reviews from the media for angrily lecturing a reporter during a press conference Thursday. That’s right, the same media who hysterically cries the United States is turning into North Korea because President Trump sometimes calls hostile reporters “enemy of the people,” is now lauding a Democrat politician for lashing out at a conservative reporter over his pointed question.
CNN New Day co-hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman scolded former Clinton press secretary Joe Lockhart for saying he'd heard "rumblings" that Democrats might be seeking a deal that, in return for the White House agreeing to testimony and the submission of documents, would result in a pause of the impeachment proceedings.
On this Tuesday's New Day, after co-host Alisyn Camerota melodramatically wondered why ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page didn't speak out before, given "what she has lived with" due to President Trump's comments about her, CNN commentator Asha Rangappa, a former FBI agent, responded: "It goes to how civil servants . . . really have a culture of being apolitical, of not trying to get into partisan fights or in the crosshairs. It's not in their DNA."
Interviewed by Alisyn Camerota on CNN, former Trump communications director turned bitter antagonist Anthony "The Mooch" Scaramucci calls congressional Republicans opposing impeachment "Vichy Republicans," a reference to the French Nazi collaborators during World War II. Who calls this show New Day? It feels more like Groundhog Day.
On New Day Saturday, CNN weekend anchor Christi Paul and fill-in co-host Martin Savidge gave a forum to Dr. Inger Anderson of the UN Environment Program to give an alarmist view of the world climate's future as she predicted that global warming caused by humans would lead to catastrophic consequences in the form of increased natural disasters.
