CNN loves to boast they hold “truth to power,” that is, except for Democrats in power. Democrat Rep. Frederica Wilson was invited on New Day Wednesday morning where host Alisyn Camerota let her make some outrageous claims about what she saw at one border detention facility, without any pushback whatsoever. Even after Wilson suggested border agents might be sexual predators around young teenage girls, Camerota didn’t bat an eye, encouraging Wilson’s account without any critical questions.
On Tuesday morning, CNN’s New Day went where few networks would and interviewed conservative journalist Andy Ngo, an editor for Quillette, after his barbaric assault at the hands of the “anti-fascist” fascists known as Antifa. Ngo, recently released from the hospital after suffering a brain hemorrhage, was slurring his words and was clearly shaken up. New Day dedicated 5 minutes and thirty five seconds to the interview.
When you’re a liberal and you fabricate a ludicrous story painting conservatives as the violent aggressors with absolutely zero evidence, your story gets nationwide attention for weeks on end with little scrutiny. If you’re a conservative clearly attacked on video by leftists with corroborating witnesses however, you story is given scarce attention and cast with doubt by the media. We saw that this week with journalist Andy Ngo, whose assault by Antifa members was captured on video, yet CNN repeatedly qualified the incident as just “his word.”
It’s no secret that Fox News is a right-leaning media organization when it comes to political commentary. Fox has several conservative hosts in primetime who are clearly identified as such. That fact often draws the ire of the liberal media, which was on full display on CNN’s New Day Monday morning. Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter continued the segment by saying that he believes that the media need to be firmer in their attacks on the President.
One of the worst things about the media in the Trump-era is the surprising amount of journalists who think that the history of bad things began on January 20, 2017. Nowhere, is this more evident than the situation at the border and Tuesday's edition of New Day on CNN was no exception.
Like the rest of the media, CNN heavily hyped a tragic image of a drowned father and daughter trying to cross the Rio Grande river to enter the country illegally. On CNN’s New Day Wednesday morning, host Alisyn Camerota and John Berman brought on legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin and the New York Times’ Maggie Haberman, to pre-emptively condemn Trump for comments he hasn’t even made yet and bash him as responsible for the pair’s deaths.
On Monday morning’s airing of CNN’s New Day, host Alisyn Camerota spoke with President Trump’s latest sexual assault accuser, author E. Jean Carroll. Carroll, who was on the show to promote her new book, detailed the account to Camerota. Camerota pushed Carroll to implicate Trump many times, and repeatedly led Carroll down a narrative that she wanted told.
New Day host Alisyn Camerota singled out and badgered a black Trump supporter on her show Thursday, for disagreeing that America was racist and it was all Trump’s fault. The liberal journalist sat down with a panel of six lifelong Democrat voters from rust belt states, four of whom voted for President Trump in 2016. Camerota was so eager to get the panel to bash Trump that she hounded one Trump supporter for daring to disagree with the liberal narrative on race relations.
On Wednesday morning, CNN’s New Day ran a ludicrous “Reality Check” on the re-election campaign kickoff President Trump hosted in Orlando Tuesday night. Host Alisyn Camerota called his rally “fact-free” before handing the segment off to John Avlon so he could spew even more misinformation.
On Tuesday morning, CNN’s New Day featured a hit piece on Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao. The report, conducted by CNN correspondent Drew Griffin, alleged without evidence that Chao may be using her office as a tool to help her family’s business, the Foremost Group.
On Monday's New Day show, CNN devoted a segment to the story of a Romanian baby, Constanin Mutu, who was taken from his father by Border Patrol last year as they arrived to seek asylum, and hinted that it was somehow nefarious for the Trump administration to do so before the zero tolerance policy had been announced publicly.
On Monday morning, New Day aired a portion of an interview between CNN Newsroom anchor Poppy Harlow and Google’s CEO Sundar Pinchai. They discussed everything from China to data privacy, but Harlow seemed intent to focus on YouTube’s policies on “hate speech.”
