CNN's Jennings Goes One-on-Three on Dems' Commitment to Law and Order

August 31st, 2022 11:49 AM

CNN’s Scott Jennings had the unenviable task of going against three of his colleagues on Wednesday’s edition of New Day on just how real President Biden and the Democratic Party’s commitment to law and order really is and which party is better on the issue.

August 25th, 2022 10:35 AM

CNN senior political analyst John Avlon joined Thursday’s edition of New Day to declare that GOP opposition to President Biden’s student loan forgiveness order is unwarranted because it is “good economic policy” and the White House is correct to say that Republicans aren't in a position to complain because of their history of cutting taxes.

With Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban speaking at CPAC in Texas on Thursday, CNN ran a segment on Thursday morning’s New Day which took Orban’s recent controversial comments that “we do not want to become peoples of mixed race” and ran with them, heavily implying that Orban would unleash a second Holocaust on the world if Hungary’s economy slips into a recession.

August 2nd, 2022 4:55 PM

With Reality Check host John Avlon taking John Berman’s co-host slot for this week of CNN’s New Day, there was even less of a moderating voice at the table than normal to stop S.E.

After Tuesday’s New Day, CNN’s John Avlon is going to need a new name for his “reality check” statement as he had several factual errors in just the concluding part of his rundown of the leaked draft opinion suggesting the Supreme Court will strike down Roe v.
