On CNN's New Day Sunday, co-hosts Christi Paul and Victor Blackwell devoted a segment to interviewing the producers of the liberal propaganda film, Rigged: The Voter Suppression Playbook, which accuses Republicans of engaging in "voter suppression" against minorities to hurt Democrats.

On CNN's New Day Saturday, the show devoted a six-minute segment to the book, Dying of Whiteness, giving author and Vanderbilt University Professor Jonathan Metzl a forum to argue that poor white Republicans "vote in a way that may be killing them" because they are allegedly fixated on voting for race-based reasons.
