Despite the fact that the Jeffrey Zucker-led CNN has created a cottage industry out of town halls involving presidential candidates and/or their liberal causes, CNN showed very little interest in recapping their four-and-a-half-hour, horrendously-rated Thursday night LGBTQ town hall with nine 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. Between midnight and 7:30 p.m. Eastern Friday (so 21 and a half hours total), CNN shows spent just under 25 minutes (24 minutes and 47 seconds) on a town hall that featured a slew of alienating takes.
Illustrating why they’re the opposition party and are focused on pleasing the Adam Schiffs of the world by helping to overthrow the Trump administration, Thursday’s CNN Right Now was in an apoplectic state following comments from “lying” Vice President Mike Pence defending President Donald Trump’s July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky
The release of the transcript of the much talked about phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Wednesday has led to a flurry of hot takes from the media about what exactly went on between the two presidents and the state of impeachment. CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin joined At This Hour host Kate Bolduan to discuss the transcripts, his English speaking skills, and why he believes that there was a quid pro quo.
Appearing on Sunday afternoon’s MSNBC Live, the Conservative Policy Institute’s Rachel Bovard injected sanity into the liberal media’s delusional, week-long obsession over Sharpiegate while thousands across the Carolinas and Bahamas have lost life, limb, and property. Not surprisingly, the MSNBC liberals were caught off guard.
The 2020 presidential election is still more than a year away, but that hasn’t kept ratings-starved CNN from announcing that, for some reason, they will hold yet another town hall marathon, set for mid-October in Los Angeles to focusing on what CNN Tonight host Don Lemon said would be "on issues that are important to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community."
After shouting at President Donald Trump on Monday because he didn’t get to ask a question at his G-7 press conference, the ever-petulant CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta instead pontificated on At This Hour, knocking Trump’s intelligence by ruling he’s “like a cat chasing a laser pointer, you know, when it comes to trying to get the President to answer a direct question.”
With former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer set to cut a rug on the new season of Dancing With the Stars, cue the Trump Derangement Syndrome from the liberal media. CNN media janitor Brian Stelter perfectly encapsulated the media’s over the top reaction during a Thursday afternoon appearance on Right Now with Brianna Keilar, where he called for “outrage and backlash” to the story.
On Wednesday, CNN showcased yet again their unsavory penchant for gun control and confiscation without facts and knowing little about an arrest warrant gone wrong in Philadelphia that left six police officers hurt. Unfortunately, this behavior continued into Thursday with 19 minutes and 28 seconds of gun control lobbying in context of the incident during their first 12 hours of live programming.
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.
