On Monday’s At This Hour, CNN invited on Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action, to push gun control in the wake of this weekend’s mass shootings. The network also portrayed Republicans as cowardly for failing to come on CNN and be yelled at.
During CNN Right Now Thursday, host Brianna Keilar and her panel analyzed the CNN Democratic debates. While the conversation included the typical analysis associated with cable news programs, one of the panelists brought up a conspiracy theory about one of the Democratic candidates, Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, running as a Russian-backed third-party candidate.
While he’s received some praise during his congressional career, the liberal media’s use of sudden respect boiled with Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX) announcing that he won’t seek reelection. And, as with many cases of when GOPers either retire or pass away, the liberal media used the occasion to lament how their hated opposition just isn’t as respectable as it used to be. Throughout the day on Friday, CNN put that truism on display.
CNN has gone after Sinclair Broadcast Group for having affiliates read scripts about fake news. But what about CNN’s penchant for identical segments with little independence for its hosts? Well, an example popped up Monday with the President criticizing Baltimore for its rampant crime, decrepit conditions, and Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-MD), who’s gerrymandered-district includes much of the city. Instead of acknowledging that, CNN journalists called Trump’s comments full of “hate” and “racist” often alongside the chyron “Politics of Hate” between 4:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Eastern.
CNN continued bashing President Trump for his rhetoric against the Squad on Tuesday. CNN Right Now invited Wajahat Ali, a New York Times columnist and CNN contributor, on to speak about Trump’s comments. Ali criticized the President and his supporters for contributing to a “pattern” of what he considers “white nationalism.” He then spouted out a number of falsehoods to back up this claim. The columnist accused Trump of calling Mexicans rapists, a lie that even Politifact gave a false rating to during the 2016 election.
On CNN Right Now Wednesday, host Brianna Keilar gushed over a cartoon dramatization of the Mueller report. An excited Keilar talked about how “there’s now an entertaining way that you can catch up” on the details of the Mueller report.” This “entertaining way” came in the form of a graphic novel designed to follow Insider’s instructions to “tell a story recounting Mueller’s report that’s so gripping it will hold your attention (and maybe your congressional representative’s).”
On Sunday's Fareed Zakaria GPS, CNN host Zakaria opened his show with a commentary in which he admitted something that others on his news network typically will not -- President Trump is right that asylum laws are increasingly being taken advantage of by non-citizens who just want to bypass the normal immigration system who should not qualify for asylum.
In addition to all but agreeing with President Trump’s “Sleepy Joe” nickname, CNN’s exclusively liberal panel thought Thursday was a terrible debate night for Vice President Joe Biden because of a heated exchange he had with Senator Kamala Harris (CA) over federal busing in the south during the civil rights movement. According to the panel, the idea that states had the right to make laws for themselves that differed from one another was a travesty with its roots in racism.
Following Wednesday’s portion of the first 2020 Democratic debate, CNN’s exclusively liberal panel decided that Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA) was the winner, while some thought it belonged to former HUD Secretary Julian Castro. But after the second half of the debate on Thursday, the CNN panel gushed and uniformly agreed that California Senator Kamala Harris won the day.
Apparently, CNN can tell the truth about the media’s liberal bias. But seemingly only past one o’clock in the morning Eastern time (and thus when most people weren’t watching), this was when CNN host Chris Cuomo admitted that the media elevated and ‘polished the apple’ of certain Democratic candidates. Continuing CNN’s post-Democratic primary debate analysis in the wee hours of Thursday morning, Cuomo looked at his panel and declared: “[former Congressman Beto O’Rourke] had been having his apple polished by the media for some time.”
While MSNBC was raging about the 2020 Democratic candidates not bashing President Trump enough during Wednesday’s debate, the liberal panel on CNN seemed okay with it. “We saw a range of views on stage tonight in Miami at the Democratic debate, except on the subject of President Trump. On that, the candidates were of one voice and they didn't miss a chance to make to clear who their real opponent is,” host Anderson Cooper stated after coming back from a commercial break.
And the winner of the first half of the first Democratic Party primary debates was...According to most of CNN’s post-debate analysts and commentators, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. Shortly after sharing a highlight reel from the NBC News debate, the CNN analysts began to coalesce around Warren’s performance.
