It was a great day for the body politic-poisoning and ethics-free CNN on Friday as the Department of Justice announced that their contributor Andrew McCabe would not be facing charges for lying. In the three shows since news broke, it was nothing but an ebullient sense of relief for the network, celebrating how “a black cloud” has lifted despite all “he has endured” and having suffered “a tremendous cost monetarily not just when it comes to sort of stress” which they unanimously panned as having been a waste.
CNN continued to embody its Jeffrey Zucker-led moniker of being an ethics-free, fear-mongering, and liberal-heavy network as The Situation Room and host Wolf Blitzer again attempted to make viewers feel bad for CNN contributor Andrew McCabe, the former acting FBI director (who’s under criminal investigation). Why? Because hours earlier, McCabe was again “a prominent target of” President Trump’s “anger.”
On Monday's The Situation Room, liberal CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin went over the top into hyperbole by claiming that President Donald Trump's dismissal of both Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman and his brother from their jobs at the White House amounted to "North Korean-style punishment of the whole family." They were executed?
Following up on his February 11 tour de force on the national embarrassment that is the dishonest liberal media, National Review editor Charles C.W. Cooke concluded 2019 with another masterpiece for the magazine’s December 31 issue that NewsBusters readers will enjoy in “CNN Is Not a News Network.” Cooke eviscerated CNN as having become “a peculiar and unlovely hybrid of progressive propaganda outlet, oleaginous media apologist, sexless cultural scold, and frenzied Donald Trump stalkerblog.”
Nick Fondacaro reported that the networks skipped over the bombshell -- yes, bombshell -- that the judge overseeing the FISA court unleashed a harsh critique of the FBI late on Tuesday. So we wondered if they all kept skipping it on the morning shows. The answer is Yes, with an asterisk. CBS This Morning gave it ten seconds in their top-of-show clip melange called "Eye Opener." Don't blink, you'll miss it!
In between the two impeachment hearings on Tuesday, the CNN panelists almost universally (with the exception of Scott Jennings) tore into Republicans as offering “ineffective,” “offensive,” and “unconvincing” arguments amounting to a “cherry picking...side show” that dared to criticize Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman.
In their first show after the Santa Clarita school shooting, the CNN morning team on New Day handled the story in their typical fashion of only having guests who support more gun control and who falsely portray Republicans as having no proposals for how to lessen mass shootings. The show also included the bizarre recurring theme of beginning the discussion by lamenting that gun control had not been passed beforehand, thus hinting that such reforms might have prevented the carnage, but then pivoting to admitting that the attack probably would not have been prevented by the liberal proposals after all, but then sticking by it anyway.
To be blunt, weekday afternoon CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin is the daytime version of Don Lemon. While she’s promoted as a journalist, she’s no more than a pro-impeachment and pro-Resistance partisan who accepts most everything liberal guests tell her. Such was the case on Tuesday when she lectured viewers about how raising questions about the Biden family or the whistleblower was tantamount to spreading conspiracy theories. And to back her up, she turned to none other than fired FBI official, proven liar, and CNN contributor Andrew McCabe.
When Alisyn Camerota of CNN questions Corey Lewandowski regarding his truth-telling standard, he zings her by saying he never lies under oath, "which is clearly more than some of your contributors." Lewandowski singles out CNN contributor Andy McCabe, who is under criminal referral for lying to the FBI and the Inspector General.
Shortly after prosecutors recommended charges for former FBI Deputy Director-turned-CNN contributor Andrew McCabe for lying to investigators, his colleague, CNN Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, rushed to his defense during an appearance on CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin Thursday. While dismissing the seriousness of the charges against McCabe, Toobin also attempted to portray him as the victim of a “vindictive crusade” orchestrated by the Trump administration.
On Monday morning, in the aftermath of a mass shooting spree in Texas from the weekend, CNN personalities were again pushing for more gun laws, including "universal background checks." CNN's three-hour New Day morning show discussed the issue in four segments, and only had guests with left-leaning views on the issue of gun control. Not only did liberal Republican contributor Ana Navarro slam the NRA and declare that she was "sick" of politicians giving "thoughts and prayers" instead of passing more gun control, CNN contributor Andrew McCabe made the questionable claim that "universal background checks" might have prevented two high-profile mass shootings as he repeated the myth of the Charleston loophole.
CNN beclowned themselves last week after the hiring of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe while whining about former Trump press secretaries getting new TV gigs. Well, the self-proclaimed “facts first” network were in for another round of ribbing on social media Monday, after new information surfaced that McCabe could be close to facing federal charges for lying under oath to the Justice Department’s inspector general.
