In the midst of CNN’s Tuesday Town Hall with prospective independent presidential candidate and former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, moderator Poppy seemed to get a bit annoyed at her guest when he appeared unwilling to “commit” to dropping out of the race in the event he would spoil the election for Democrats in the fall of 2020.
Despite the fact that CNN has covered the latest anti-Semitism from Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) throughout the day on Monday, numerous analysts and hosts have tried to assist Omar by muddying the waters, suggesting House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is also anti-Semitic for a tweet last year criticizing the left-wing views of Michael Bloomberg, George Soros, and Tom Steyer.
Proving why CNN pays him to be an expert political analyst, left-wing activist Van Jones panned President Trump’s Tuesday State of the Union address as a “psychotically incoherent speech with cookies and dog poop” moments after it was over.
Monday’s edition of CNN Right Now with Brianna Keilar featured an undercover report from CNN Senior International Correspondent Nick Paton Walsh detailing the horrors of socialism in Venezuela, even as many Democratic candidates for President romanticize socialist ideas here at home. Host Brianna Keilar prefaced the report by describing the people of Venezuela as “desperate for food and other essentials.” This report aired as the South American nation falls further into turmoil, with Opposition Leader Juan Guaido declaring himself Interim President while socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro refuses to step aside.
Monday night was CNN’s gooey town hall with Senator and presidential candidate Kamala Harris (D-CA) moderated by Jake Tapper. And as my NewsBusters colleague, Curtis Houck noted on Twitter, “Parkland Town Hall Jake is here tonight to moderate this #HarrisTownHall”. In all, there were 16 questions posed to Harris from the audience and all but two of them came from purely leftist positions. The remaining two came from a neutral position with none from the right.
During Saturday’s edition of S.E. Cupp Unfiltered, the eponymous host gloated about President Trump’s decision to “cave” to the Democrats as she opened her show. She later had some unusual analysis when it came to the border wall, arguing that a handful of President Trump’s supporters have a “sexual fetish” for a wall on the southern border with Mexico.
So after the liberal media berated the Trump administration and blamed them for the shutdown, one of media’s chief instigators suggested that a deal to reopen the government is a distraction from the pre-dawn indictment and arrest of Roger Stone? Well, it turns out that’s the logic spinning inside the mind of CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta, who knocked rumors of a deal during Friday’s CNN Right Now as “a bright, shiny object....after the stunning news, the indictment of Roger Stone.”
On Wednesday's CNN Right Now, host Brianna Keilar and New York Republican Congressman Scott Reed got into a heated debate over the government shutdown and border security as the CNN host also questionably claimed that concerns about illegal immigrants crimes have been "gutted," citing groups with liberal views on immigration.
As Texas Republican Congressman Chip Roy appeared as a guest on CNN's Right Now show, host Brianna Keilar insisted that it is a "fact" that illegal immigrants commit crime at a lower rate than do U.S. citizens as the two debated whether there needs to be a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
On Thursday night, correspondent Randi “Kush” Kaye offered an hour-long special on the White House Briefing Room that served as nothing more than a pompous exercise in lamenting how they believe the Trump administration has been unfair to them and are unraveling American democracy. The endeavor was dominated by attempts to make viewers to feel bad for CNN, fondly look back on past administrations, and offer hissy fits about how, thanks to online and social media outlets, they’ve lost the ability to control the minds of the American public.
On his Sunday show, CNN host Fareed Zakaria devoted the final segment to interviewing 15-year-old Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg, giving her an unchallenged forum to promote her alarmist views on global warming. Thunberg -- who gained attenton by skipping school for three weeks to draw attention to her cause -- claimed that "climate change" is the "biggest crisis humanity has ever faced," and advised viewers to abstain from flying, eating meat and dairy, and receiving new merchandise as Christmas gifts, to avoid being "screwed" in the future.
Longtime liberal actor Robert de Niro has hurled expletives and insults against President Trump and played Special Counsel Robert Mueller on NBC’s Saturday Night Live since April 14, so he’s obviously not a fan. So Monday afternoon on CNN International, De Niro insisted that he’s not lowering our discourse, lashed out at the “nightmare” Trump presidency as “one of the worst that I have ever seen,” and even suggested that Brexit be overturned.
