CNN political director David Chalian reprised his State of the Union analysis from 2018 by, once again, discrediting CNN’s own poll numbers showing an overwhelmingly positive response to President Trump’s Tuesday address.“So I just want to stress here, for a State of the Union address, the President's partisans, his supporters tend to turn out to watch the speech. This is true of a president of either party,” he warned viewers after also noting the poll was only of people who actually watched the speech.
Moments after Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins announced Friday afternoon that she’ll vote for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, liberal journalists were despondent. But for others decided to face the music and CNN’s David Chalian did so by admitting that this was “perhaps” Donald Trump’s “best week as President.”
In the 40 minutes since President Trump’s early Wednesday evening press conference, CNN’s The Situation Room did nothing to combat the notion that the liberal media is the opposition party. All told, the assembled analysts and journalists accused Brett Kavanaugh supporters of being racist and sexist conspiracy theorists who are being spoon-fed their talking points from Fox News.
While the immediate reaction on CNN’s Wolf Friday afternoon to former President Barack Obama’s angry, bitter speech against President Trump was more timid than expected in avoiding an Obama lovefest, CNN Newsroom afternoon host Brooke Baldwin and her experts came through in reminding us that this is a network of The Resistance.
Conditions reached DEFCON-1 over at CNN on Thursday afternoon following a tense White House press briefing filled with questions about the administration’s credibility. These frenzied inquiries were sparked by Rudy Giuliani's stunning admission that the President reimbursed Michael Cohen for the Stormy Daniels hush payment.
The journalists at CNN on Wednesday haughtily dismissed the hiring of Larry Kudlow as Donald Trump’s new economic adviser, discarding the former Ronald Reagan official as simply a “TV personality” who encourages the President’s “TV feedback loop.” CNN political director David Chalian condescended: “The other thing, of course, to note here is this is a cable TV personality. It is a perfect kind of appointment for The Apprentice-style presidency that Donald Trump is running.”
The Special Counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election dropped federal indictments on 13 Russian nationals on Friday, stunning Washington, DC. And in a press briefing a short time later, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told the media that the indictments had no allegations against Americans because none were “knowing participants” in the plot and the election outcome was not swayed. But that didn’t sit well with a CNN Newsroom panel who couldn’t seem to wrap their heads around it.
It's no secret that over the last several weeks liberal outlets like CNN have been aggressively trying to undermine President Donald Trump's push for more border security and aggressive deportation of illegal immigrants -- even wrongly claiming that the illegal immigrant crime rate is lower than that of the general population when research has found that the crime rate is actually much higher.
It was as if an asteroid was on its way to CNN’s D.C. bureau on Friday when the Republican House Intelligence Committee memo was released as CNN analysts and reporters did everything in their power to dismiss the memo and defend Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS. Chief political analyst Gloria Borger concocted perhaps the biggest pretzel of them all, dismissing the memo’s concerns about an anti-Trump, leftist bias by Steele and Fusion GPS that put together the dossier because, well, people rely on biased sources to get to the truth all the time.
Seconds before the official release of the highly anticipated House Intelligence Committee memo on abuses of power within the FBI, CNN political director David Chalian was furious that it was distracting from Russia’s “attack on our democracy” and heaped praise on Republican Senator John McCain (Ariz.) for a statement condemning the memo.
In an amazing example of just how out of touch they were with the American people Tuesday, CNN prefaced the release of their very positive State of the Union reaction poll by claiming it wasn’t representative of the nation. “It's not representative of the country overall it is a poll of people who watched the speech. Well, who watches a State of the Union address? Fans of the person giving it,” declared Political Director David Chalian.
Just when you thought CNN couldn’t cheapen itself any further, it did, folks. On Thursday, CNN Newsroom reacted to a powerful White House statement Chief of Staff and Gen. John Kelly (Ret.) amidst the Gold Star families controversy by noting Kelly’s personal sacrifices before lambasting him for calling out a Democratic member of Congress and attacking the media.
