Whenever CNN goes off about President Trump having conflicts of interest, just remember CNN’s inaction regarding their own conflicts. Wednesday’s CNN Right Now featured a gooey interview with longtime Obama confidant Valerie Jarrett and, as par for the course, failed to note how she’s the mother of supposedly objective CNN Justice reporter Laura Jarrett. On May 5, 2018, NewsBusters wrote that Jarrett had “given seven interviews and, according to the CNN transcript, Laura’s name never came up.” Since then, she’s done an additional seven interview segments and her personal connection to CNN came up only twice.
The Daily Caller is reporting that former senior adviser to President Obama, Valerie Jarrett, may have bought her spot on the New York Times’ Best Sellers list with her new memoir, Finding My Voice, despite having poor selling rankings, elsewhere.
Top Obama aide Valerie Jarrett is plugging a new memoir, and in 12 minutes and two interview segments on All Things Considered, NPR had just one challenging question for her: what about this touchy-Biden issue? When they turned to the wider stage of Campaign 2020, it sounded like a Democrat precinct chat, and NPR anchor Audie Cornish seemed to worry that none of the contenders would match the wondrous appeal of Obama, who was... "an idea," not just a person:
We’ve come to expect former Obama officials getting off easy when they appear on the morning shows. However, sometimes the complete lack of any sort of impartial standard really is shocking. That was the case Tuesday when former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett came on ABC’s Good Morning America to promote her new memoir called "Finding My Voice." The Democrat operative received the star treatment from the hosts, who couldn’t stop gushing about her friendship with the Obamas and her positive “light,” while inviting her to tear into President Trump and Republicans as evil.
How did hate crime huckster Jussie Smollett get away with it? All crooked roads in Chicago lead back to the Obamas. On Tuesday, as part of a sealed deal, the Illinois state attorney's office dismissed 16 felony charges brought by a grand jury against the Trump-hating actor, who blamed phantom white MAGA supporters for a brutal racist “assault” that left him with a teensy-weensy scratch under his eye.
As NewsBusters has previously reported, the national media, including CNN itself, have gone into an uproar over CNN’s decision to hire former Justice Department Spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores as Deputy Political Editor. The topic came up on Wednesday’s edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight, where the eponymous host discussed the Isgur Flores hysteria with media reporter for The Hill Joe Concha. Concha ended up highlighting a blaring double standard when it comes to CNN’s hiring of political operatives with “no journalism experience.”
Throughout the week, CNN has been airing promos for a Saturday night reairing of its two-hour work of liberal propaganda falling in love head over heels for the Obama administration that first aired two days before Donald Trump’s Inauguration on January 18. The End: Inside the Last Days of the Obama White House was a two-hour documentary of sorts without a narrator, but instead carried by behind-the-scenes monologues from various White House officials.
On his Saturday evening show, liberal CNN host Van Jones devoted several minutes to Democratic charges of "voter suppression" by Republicans, and even misleadingly used an edited clip of Georgia GOP gubernatorial nominee Brian Kemp from 2014 as the CNN host suggested it was evidence the GOP candidate wanted to block minorities from voting in his state.
So you say you’re weary of all that press coverage for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the New York Democrat who defeated heavily favored incumbent Representative Joe Crowley in the party’s primary last month and is still trying to explain what a “Democratic socialist” does? If so, Time magazine has got the candidate just for you! And if she’s victorious on Election Day, she will become a hard-left governor for the state of Georgia.
The View continued its pathetic pandering to Democrat politicians and officials today, after having Cynthia Nixon and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the show in the past few weeks for softball interviews. Former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett appeared on Wednesday’s show for another friendly conversation, where host Joy Behar lamented that Trump was going to destroy the world and it was imperative that Obama condemn him publicly.
We've come a long way from harmless playground jibes like “your mother wears combat boots,” to those of today from the likes of Samantha Bee and other leftist “entertainers” who say things about President Trump and his family that are so vulgar they can't be printed in a newspaper or quoted on television.
There are few things more damaging to the liberal media’s credibility than conflicts of interest and false/fake stories. For CNN, it was the latter on Friday’s New Day as co-host Alisyn Camerota treated former Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett to a softball interview, but failed to disclose that Valerie’s daughter (Laura Jarrett) is a CNN Justice correspondent.
