Hardly a day goes by without liberals in the “mainstream media” accusing the popular Fox News Channel of having a “unique relationship” with Donald Trump, the Republican occupant of the White House. Of course, those same people avoid or deny that a similar connection existed between former Democrat President Barack Obama and the CNN and MSNBC networks. As a result, Erick Erickson -- a reporter who worked at FNC for five years -- has claimed that “the truth” about the channel and its liberal counterparts has more to do with ratings dominance than any pro-GOP bias.
To close out Wednesday’s CNN Tonight, fill-in host Erin Burnett, a CNN correspondent, and two panelists spent over 10 minutes trying to muddy the waters on anti-Semitism, downplaying Minnesota Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s long history of anti-Semitic comments because the President’s Charlottesville comments and white supremacists are the ones worth denouncing (instead of both). So, in other words, Orange Man Bad.
Even though CNN promotes liberal philosophies throughout its operation, an organization of black journalists has accused the network of falling short when it comes to maintaining a proper racial balance among the company’s leaders. As a result, the National Association of Black Journalists has placed the cable channel on a “special media monitoring list,” and a four-person team from the NABJ “will perform further research and an analysis of CNN’s diversity, inclusion and equity practices,” then “publicly report on identified deficiencies in hiring a diverse workforce in news decision-making capacities.”
Appearing as a panel member on Friday's New Day on CNN, The Beat D.C. managing editor Tiffany Cross claimed that MAGA supporters are to blame for people perceiving them as racist and violent, and fretted that the media have been too apologetic toward them in the aftermath of the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax. As liberal CNN contributor Van Jones thought her analysis was unfair to Donald Trump supporters, he still ended up smearing them by claiming they treat blacks the way Smollett and Cross treated them.
The bizarre tale of Empire star Jussie Smollett took another interesting turn on Thursday morning, when black commentators appeared on CNN with At This Hour host Kate Bolduan to discuss the charges of disorderly conduct filed by the Chicago police against Smollett.Keith Boykin -- who said he has known Smollett for eight years -- said he was “devastated” by the accusations of staging a fake homophobic and racist attack and sending a threatening letter containing white powder to himself. In addition, political commentator and weekend CNN anchor Van Jones described the situation as the “fall of an icon.”
The media are using the one year anniversary of the Parkland, Florida shooting to push for more gun control. It’s something they started doing immediately after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.The following is a collection of the media’s ugliest attacks on gun rights supporters after the Parkland, Florida shooting.
Proving why CNN pays him to be an expert political analyst, left-wing activist Van Jones panned President Trump’s Tuesday State of the Union address as a “psychotically incoherent speech with cookies and dog poop” moments after it was over.
Along with California Democrat Kamala Harris, it’s becoming evident that, at this early moment in the 2020 presidential campaign, fellow Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) has become a liberal media darling and that was on display on New Day moments after his Friday morning announcement. In a 12-minute stretch, CNNers marveled at the “energy” and “freshness” emanating from such a “force of nature” that “people want to touch.”
On Monday, CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Van Jones falsely claimed that Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer had not said they would never fund the President’s proposed border wall.
Election Night 2018 was a mixed bag that left both parties walking away feeling happy. Republicans blunted the so-called “blue wave” and captured key governorships while Democrats flipped control of the House. During CNN’s Election Night in America, Tuesday, liberal activist and commentator Van Jones was a whirlwind of emotions as each development unfurled.
With vote totals flooding in early in the night, it was painfully obvious to the liberal media that the so-called “blue wave” they’ve been hyping for a year crashed against red breakers. It was early in the nine o’clock hour when CNN anchor Jake Tapper admitted “what's going on here tonight, this is not a blue wave. This is not a wave that is knocking out all sorts of Republican incumbents.”
As the midterm elections approach, TV news hosts have abdicated their role as reporters to become partisan cheerleaders, inundating the airwaves with portrayals of Democratic candidates as lovable celebrities. The same media who relentlessly hammered Republicans with 88-percent negative midterm coverage have stubbornly refused to cover Democratic scandals, while praising their favorite candidates as “rock stars.”
