MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews reluctantly waded into the Russia uranium deal story on Tuesday’s show, blasting the calls for a special counsel to investigate the “closed case” Obama-era deal and mocked the story as one that “the right-wing wants you to think is the biggest scandal since the Rosenbergs.”
On Tuesday's New Day, CNN host Chris Cuomo and Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan got into a contentious debate over whether the Justice Department should appoint a special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton over the Uranium One deal, and over the issue of the Clinton campaign seeking out information on Donald Trump from Russia. Cuomo was dismissive of the Republican effort, calling it a "political spitball contest," and suggesting that it was just "tit for tat" because of Robert Mueller's investigation into President Donald Trump's campaign.
CNN anchor Chris Cuomo got in a heated dispute, Friday, with Congressman Jim Jordan over Donald Trump ending ObamaCare subsidies.

On CNN's New Day Tuesday morning, CNN Global Economic Analyst Rana Foroohar advocated for a single-payer health care system while co-host Alisyn Camerota misrepresented statements made by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).
Providing some unintentional comedy, CNN anchor Poppy Harlow on Thursday lectured a conservative Congressman, telling him, “I’m not the left. I’m a journalist.” Collectively, many Americans must have thought: “What’s the difference?” The haughty defense came after Harlow demanded of Congressman Jim Jordan: “Are you comfortable with that huge reduction in Medicaid funding?”

Only minutes after MSNBC’s MTP Daily host Chuck Todd proclaimed on Thursday that Republicans may have “inadvertently helped Hillary Clinton” concerning her e-mail scandal with the FBI Director James Comey’s hearing, Todd brought on Republican Congressman Jim Jordan (Ohio) to question whether or not Clinton “is being over-targeted” by Republicans.
Those folks at the Associated Press sure are "clever."
Those looking for information about Hillary Clinton's damning email to her daughter Chelsea indicating that Mrs. Clinton knew that a planned operation by Al Qaeda — and not an Internet video — was behind the Benghazi attacks which killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others trying to save him will find nothing at all at the AP's national site in a search (not in quotes) on "Hillary Chelsea":
CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin trashed Republican Congressman Jim Jordan (Ohio) during Thursday’s Anderson Cooper 360 for being “the worst” in his questioning of Hillary Clinton and acting “unprofessional,” “misleading,” and “demeaning.” Reacting to Jordan speaking with CNN’s Dana Bash moments beforehand, Toobin began his diatribe by whining that the conservative member of Congress “was clearly the worst, the most unprofessional, the most misleading, the most really demeaning to the Congress in terms of his questioning.”
Suddenly worried about government spending, the Thursday edition of ABC’s World News Tonight featured anchor David Muir complaining on three separate occasions about the cost of the House Select Committee on Benghazi while chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl observed that Republicans “really didn’t succeed” in “draw[ing] blood” from Hillary Clinton.
Offering no surprises, Thursday’s NBC Nightly News aired glowing remarks for Hillary Clinton’s performance during the House Select Committee on Benghazi hearing with conclusions that she “stood her ground” as it “dissolved into bickering” while she “stayed above the fray” and removing Benghazi from being an issue in the 2016 campaign.
Hours after Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards testified Tuesday before the House Oversight Committee concerning the videos that have embroiled the abortion provider in scandal over the selling of aborted baby parts, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC rushed to the defense of the “unfazed” and “spirited” Richards as she “endured a five-hour interrogation” by the GOP.
