The Situation Room
Only a few hours into their coverage of the deadly terror attack in New York City on Tuesday, CNN found it more important to break away to continue to their Robert Mueller marathon. “A terror attack that killed eight people and injured a dozen others when a man in a truck mowed down bike riders and pedestrians on the west side. Much more on that coming up,” declared Wolf Blitzer on The Situation Room. “But we have another breaking story we're following right now. President Trump and the Russia investigation.”
Apparently, John Garamendi, a California Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives, either doesn’t know or doesn’t care about the term ad hominem, which means attacking someone directly instead of venting criticism at that person’s position on an issue. And, even worse, apparently a key member of the liberal media didn't know it when he saw it.
On Thursday, the federal government stepped up its hurricane relief effort in Puerto Rico by dispatching three-star Army general, Lt. Gen. Jeff Buchanan to oversee all operations. The move came as the sheer devastation from Hurricane Maria continued to cripple relief efforts and supply distribution. Instead of recognizing the unique and difficult challenge of trying to aid Puerto Rico, both CNN and MSNBC tried to paint the Trump administration as uncaring of their plight.
Wednesday was quite the day for the feckless CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta as he had his clock cleaned by White House policy adviser Stephen Miller over immigration. CNN gave Acosta hourly opportunities to change the narrative, but they did quite the opposite by only reinforcing Acosta’s derisory behavior masquerading as moralism.
On Thursday's The Situation Room on CNN, during a discussion of President Donald Trump's withdrawal from the Paris Accord, CNN's Jim Acosta and Jeffrey Toobin both pushed the notion that the liberal view of global theory is "settled science." Toobin: "Do we always talk about climate in terms of the politics of it? The climate is actually a science issue. And the science -- the climate is going to continue warming regardless of what his base wants or, you know, it's actually science and not politics." Acosta: "It's settled science."
CNN’s eccentric Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta had been all over CNN and social media this week throwing a temper-tantrum over how the White House press briefings were being conducted. But during an appearance on The Situation Room, Wednesday evening, Acosta went full liberal activist as he decried the Trump administration and tried to smear a conservative panelist: “What we're witnessing right now is just this erosion of our freedoms in terms of covering the president of the United States.”
New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman appeared on the Tuesday edition of CNN’s The Situation Room and, in addition to flaunting his love for communist China, suggested that President Trump is mentally unstable even though “I'm not a doctor.”
During a midday segment on Middle Eastern relations and terrorism, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer interviewed former ambassador to the U.N., Iraq, and Afghanistan Zalmay Khalilzad. Blitzer and CNN ostensibly were interested in having Ambassador Khalilzad as a guest on the program for his expert analysis and insight. However, instead of discussing policy, Blitzer instead deliberately derailed Khalilzad’s academic breakdown of the issues in favor of pushing him to criticize President Trump.
A week to the day after President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, a memo he purportedly written claiming Trump asked him to end the Mike Flynn investigation was leaked to The New York Times. In the aftermath of the first story, CNN Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin flew off the handle and compared it Watergate. A week later, Toobin was again jumping to conclusions and ignoring the sketchy facts. “Three words: Obstruction of justice,” he exclaimed to Wolf Blitzer on The Situation Room.
During Tuesday’s Situation Room, CNN host Wolf Blitzer repeatedly nudged guests to accept the notion of impeaching President Donald Trump following a New York Times piece claiming that Trump told then-FBI Director James Comey in February to end the Mike Flynn probe.
Washington, DC was rocked Tuesday evening when news broke that President Donald Trump had fired FBI Director James Comey. According to a memorandum from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Comey was recommended to be fired for going over the head of Attorney General Loretta Lynch on July 5, 2016, and holding a press conference about Hillary Clinton’s e-mail investigation. But according to CNN’s Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, the FBI director was fired because he was hot on Trump’s trail.
It only took four "precise" words to utterly deflate Wolf Blitzer on the May 3 Situation Room on CNN. Those four deflationary words came courtesy of Senator Dianne Feinstein. A transcript is below but it is absolutely necessary to watch the video to see just how instantly poor Wolf's entire attitude changed. One moment he was assertively asking a question in a bold tone and the next moment his balloon burst leaving him weakly sputtering in obvious frustration.
