April 19th, 2018 12:30 AM
In a jaw-dropping display that was one part a lack of self-awareness and another part hypocrisy, Wednesday’s prime-time Anderson Cooper 360 featured a panel of CNN analysts sharing their opinions about opinion shows like Hannity on Fox News.

WashPost to Pastor: How Would You Treat A Demonically-Possessed Cruz?
