Marc Lamont Hill
Moments after this NewsBusters post was published, CNN came out with an exclusive statement to Mediaite’s Aidan McLaughlin that the Jeffrey Zucker-led network had cut ties with Hill following his disturbing and embarrassing speech Wednesday at the United Nations against Israel that included an endorsement of violence against the Jewish people.
On Sunday evening's CNN Newsroom, during a segment with liberal CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill, host Ana Cabrera wrongly claimed that President Donald Trump had lamented that it is a scary time for "white men" when in reality his actual quote did not mention race at all but referred to "young men."
Since last week, CNN has again demonstrated its double standard in spending substantially more time on stories that suggest police officers are being racist against black suspects while ignoring other instances of police violence that do not support the narrative. Between Wednesday night and Thursday morning, CNN Tonight and New Day both pounced on video of a black man being beaten by police in Arizona for refusing to sit down when ordered to.
The United States is proud to have Israel as an ally. But you’d never know it from watching the liberal media’s reactions to the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem. As the embassy opened on Monday, May 14, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that it “was the right thing to do,” and praised Trump. On Twitter, back in the states, the media raged. Women’s March co-founder Linda Sarsour tweeted, “Today is a sad and enraging day. #Jerusalem.”
On Tuesday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of rapper Kanye West recently making a provocative suggestion that black slaves were partially to blame for their own enslavement, liberal CNN political commentator at one point hinted that wearing a pro-Donald Trump MAGA hate was worse than rappers pushing an "F the police" message. He also suggested that it was racist for conservatives to discuss the issue of "black-on-black-crime."
On Wednesday's CNN Tonight, anchor Don Lemon hosted a segment to discuss the fact that rapper Kanye West has received criticism for praising President Donald Trump. The CNN host even alluded to West's history of accusing President George W. Bush of not caring about black Americans to then suggest that now West may not "care about black people."
On Friday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of President Donald Trump speaking out against Colin Kaepernick and other athletes who have kneeled instead of standing for the national anthem, far-left CNN political commentator Marc Lamont Hill admitted that he also does not stand for the anthem. Hill: "I come on here every week and talk about white supremacy -- I say Donald Trump is a white supremacist -- I don't stand for the national anthem -- and CNN still employs me."
Following the shooting of Congressman Steve Scalise and the others present at the Republican baseball practice, there was a notable dearth of the gun-control pushing by the Big Three Networks. That fact was also picked up by ABC’s Martha Raddatz, who questioned her panel about why that was during This Week on Sunday. “Do you think that had to do with the fact that you had the capitol police officer there-- the security detail who really did stop this from being a much more tragic event,” she asked.
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's CNN Newsroom, guest hosted by Pamela Brown, to discuss violent riots by left-wing protesters at UC Berkeley, far-left CNN political commentator and Morehouse College professor Marc Lamont Hill tried to claim that there have similarly been riots by right-wingers on college campuses, but repeatedly failed to come up with any examples when fellow guest Ben Ferguson kept pressing him..
Marc Lamont Hill launched an inflammatory attack on another guest on Monday's CNN Tonight as part of a diatribe against Donald Trump. Hill claimed that the President-Elect's meetings with African American celebrities were "demeaning" to blacks: "Bring some people up there with some expertise...don't just bring up people to entertain." The BET News host unleashed after Trump supporter Bruce LeVell defended the billionaire: "It was a bunch of mediocre Negroes being dragged in front of TV as a photo-op for Donald Trump's exploitative campaign against black people. And you are the prime example of that."
CNN's Marc Lamont Hill sided with Colin Kaepernick on Monday's New Day, after the NFL quarterback used the national anthem to protest the apparent oppression of blacks in the U.S.: "When black people...critique America, a certain label gets put on that doesn't get put on other people." Hill also played up how the anthem was written before the abolition of slavery, and derided criticism of Kaepernick as "another example of white people defining for black people what's most important."
On CNN New Day Wednesday morning, Chris Cuomo brought up the video of Sylville Smith’s sister, calling for violence in the suburbs getting widespread attention, though the initial part of her message calling for nonviolence in their community, was. “That part of the bite was not widely used,” Cuomo said, conveniently leaving out that CNN was the one who left out the rest of the soundbite, initially.
