Prior to his emotional interview with KABC radio anchor Leeann Tweeden, CNN’s The Lead host Jake Tapper briefly grilled former Bill Clinton confidant Paul Begala on the late and sudden examinations on the part of the media concerning Clinton’s sexual misdeeds.
Early Wednesday morning on CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon stood by as his liberal panelists Paul Begala and Symone Sanders defended and even praised the disturbing Latino Victory Fund ad that ran before Tuesday’s gubenatorial election, painting Republicans and Ed Gillespie voters as Confederate flag-loving murderers running over minority children.
On Wednesday night’s Anderson Cooper 360, CNN’s Tom Foreman offered a report on the Clinton-Russia-uranium scandal, and then Cooper turned to the pundits for analysis – or, as you might expect, for two Clinton defenders to dismiss it all as irrelevant old news. Foreman cited the new investigative reporting in The Hill newspaper, and Joshua Green just pretended it was never published.
President Trump was renowned for his prolific and infamous use of Twitter to both aid his message and to stir up controversy. But during Tuesday’s The Lead on CNN, host Jake Tapper tried to link someone else’s Instagram controversy to the President. The controversy was sparked by Louise Linton, the wife of Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, who got into a heated exchange over a comment left on an Instagram photo.
If the Trump-Russia news frenzy has shown us anything, it is the hypocrisy of the left. Wednesday evening, CNN political commentator and former Clinton official Paul Begala took things to DEFCON 1 on Anderson Cooper 360.
This past weekend a fan of President Trump took an old video of Trump participating in fake television wrestling, put CNN’s logo in place of the person Trump was pretending to punch and made a gif out of it. Trump then retweeted the gif, to the media’s dismay. Predictably, journalists took to Twitter to spin this silly photoshopped tweet as a violent threat against all journalists. CNN journalists took it the worst of course, but went overboard with the hyperbolic predictions of whatever significance a silly gif could have.
I oppose the push to remove "The Late Show" comedian Stephen Colbert from the air because of his obscene tirade against President Donald Trump. In fact, I wish the video of his boorish diatribe would go viral. The best remedy against the political left's ongoing crusade to remake America in its own vulgar image is maximum exposure of its irrationality.
On Tuesday's New Day on CNN, during a discussion of President Donald Trump ending his interview with John Dickerson when the CBS host started pressing him about his claims that President Barack Obama had ordered wiretapping against him, liberal CNN political commentator Paul Begala lambasted Trump as someone who makes a worse President than a dog would make.
Most readers of NewsBusters and consumers of cable news are used to liberal media meltdowns since November 8. However, that’s not to say they’re any less enjoyable. Saturday night featured another temper tantrum by CNN with anchors and guests labeling Trump’s 100 Days rally in Pennsylvania a “deeply disturbing” and “stunning” speech by a “moral midget.”
The panel on CNN's At This Hour With Kate Bolduan, besides former Rubio presidential campaign communications director Alex Conant, bashed the Republican proposal to replace Obamacare. One of the panelists called for government intervention in healthcare, unaware the law which the GOP seeks to repeal and replace already does so.
Appearing as a panel member on Thursday's Anderson Cooper 360, during a discussion of Muslim-Americans "self-radicalizing' and becoming terrorists, liberal CNN political commentator Van Jones at one point blamed Donald Trump for allegedly causing some to "self-radicalize." As conservative CNN political commentator Jack Kingston argued in favor of studies to help answer the question of why "lone wolf" terrorists "became radical," Jones jumped in to inject: "When people say stuff like Trump. Trump kind of helps make people radical, but go ahead."
Within just minutes of the vice presidential debate’s conclusion Tuesday, CNN’s Debate Night in America panel was quick to slam Governor Mike Pence and praise Senator Tim Kaine’s performance. “Well, there are two sins in communicating with people. There's small sin and there's big sin,” political commentator Van Jones explained, “And what happened was, you saw in real time essentially Pence invent a running mate and he just lied about you know what this guy stood for.” Jones said that Kaine committed the “small sin” of incessantly interrupting Pence.
