CNN Airs Hatefest on ‘Offensive’ GOP Criticizing Vindman
November 19th, 2019 5:11 PM

CNN's New Day Only Has Guests Who Want More Gun Control
November 17th, 2019 6:25 PM
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…
Not The Onion: Baldwin Brings on McCabe to Bash ‘Trump Conspiracies’
October 1st, 2019 5:20 PM
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…

Facts First? New CNNer McCabe Could Be Indicted for Lying About Leaks
August 26th, 2019 8:43 PM
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.

CNN Rewards Disgraced FBI Leaker Andrew McCabe With Job
August 23rd, 2019 12:26 PM

Bozell & Graham: McCabe, the Justice Department's Jussie Smollett
February 21st, 2019 11:12 PM
Just like his boss and hero James Comey, McCabe has written a Trump-trashing book, and like Comey, he’s getting hours and hours of air time to sell laughable notions, like the idea that the FBI has been utterly nonpartisan. This man will say anything. Truth means nothing. He’s worse than Comey. It barely matters to his interviewers that McCabe was fired from the top of the FBI for…lying his face…
