CNN’s Erin Burnett conducted a sacchaine interview with Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf on Monday’s Erin Burnett OutFront, in which she sympathized with the Mayor for being “picked on” by the President. Schaaf made headlines in March when she posted a Tweet warning illegal aliens about an upcoming ICE raid in the Bay Area. To her credit, Burnett framed Schaaf’s actions as such while introducing her; however, she went on permit her to repeatedly twist facts, while offering virtually no pushback in response.
During an appearance on Sunday's edition of CNN's Reliable Sources, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof admitted that the media has an addiction to covering President Trump, leading them to avoid covering other newsworthy topics.

Breaking news...CNN has finally found someone to interview besides Michael Avenatti. During Sunday's edition of CNN's Reliable Sources, host Brian Stelter sat down with Trevor Noah, host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show.

Former CNN contributor Reza Aslan is in the media again decrying Donald Trump and his voter base of “radicalized extremists.” One would think that Aslan would tone down his personal brand of anti-Trump rhetoric, considering it got him removed from CNN.

Here’s another example of something that would never have happened on CNNN when Barack Obama was living in the White House.

During Thursday's edition of New Day, co-host Chris Cuomo gleefully announced that “roughly two dozen Republican Senators and Members of Congress told CNN they're not ready to back their party's standard bearer.” In other words, they have not explicitly endorsed President Trump for re-election in 2020. He then asked Republican Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin whether or not he supported President Trump's re-election campaign. Johnson did not directly answer the question; instead pointing out that Election Day 2020 is more than two years away and referring to Cuomo's inquiry as a “gotcha” question.
As James Comey’s book exploded onto the scene, CNN pumped the breaks on its “Facts First” campaign to revisit perhaps the most salacious claim contained in the Steele dossier.

To date, no aspect of these allegations has been substantiated in any capacity.
