Avlon Condemns 'Gnashing Of Teeth' After Biden Speech
CNN’s John Avlon approached Tuesday’s so-called reality check on New Day claiming to be a man of data as he defended President Biden’s recent speech denouncing “MAGA Republicans.” Yet, as Avlon lamented the “gnashing of teeth” from Republicans in response, Avlon again claimed Republicans are more extreme than Democrats.
Reality?? CNN's Avlon Tries to Paint Dems as Moderate, GOP as Extreme

CNN's Jennings Goes One-on-Three on Dems' Commitment to Law and Order
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. Despite the imbalance, Jennings was able to show that Democratic sentiment on the issue seems to be based on the ideology.
Avlon Lauds Biden's Student Loan Order, Agrees It's Like Cutting Taxes
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.
CNN Whines Nadler vs. Maloney: Shouldn't 'Have Even Happened,' 'Nuts'
As part of the Democratic Party primaries in New York Tuesday night, one of the “liberal lions of Manhattan politics,” Representative Carolyn Maloney lost to fellow lion Representative Jerry Nadler after their districts were consolidated and rearranged via a court order.

CNN's Avlon Decries Flood of GOP 'Hyperpartisan Cowards and Cranks'
On Wednesday's New Day show, CNN's John Avlon delivered another of his "Realty Check" segments which are often more about promoting liberal spin to attack conservatives than to be factually accurate.

CNN Implies Hungary's Orban Will Launch a Second Holocaust
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.
CNN Deceptively Edits Audio to Pass Off Sunday Host as Hungary’s Orban
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. Cupp from ranting about the current state of the Republican Party. Less well known was Berman's apparent influence in avoiding deceptive editing, as Avlon apparently tried to pass off audio of…
S.E. Cupp LOSES IT Because Trump Hasn't Been Indicted
As the January 6 Committee nears its season finale tonight, TV news has been abuzz with pre-game coverage and speculation, especially about whether or not Donald Trump would be indicted by the Justice Department.

CNN Deceptively Edits Cruz's Gay Marriage Comment to Justify Freakout
This weekend, Texas Senator Ted Cruz said (unsurprisingly) that he thought Obergefell v. Hodges — the 2015 Supreme Court decision that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide — was wrongly decided. Predictably, the panel of CNN’s New Day on Monday morning took Cruz’s remarks out of context to bash the Texas Senator and the “right extreme of the base” that is still opposed to…
Avlon Gloats Over Sussmann Verdict in Irony-Rich 'Reality Check'
If you ever feel like being lectured by someone who thinks you have the mental capacity of a toddler, look no further than CNN’s John Avlon.

Avlon: Overturning Roe 'Isn't Conservative,' Will 'Undercut' Democracy
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. Wade, including that striking down Roe and allowing for pro-life laws isn’t conservative.
Column: No More Liberal Moderators Tilting Debates
The Republican National Committee made a bold decision that the media elites treated like an anti-democratic outrage. The RNC pulled out of the allegedly bipartisan Commission on Presidential Debates. This decision is not an outrage. It’s long overdue.
Avlon Laments 'Blow to Our Democracy' After RNC Debate Withdrawal'
On CNN’s Friday installment of New Day, John Avlon reacted to the news that the RNC has withdrawn from the Commission on Presidential Debates with one of his “reality checks” that characteristically featured plenty of pretentiousness, but not a lot of reality.
