Moments before midnight, following their Democratic presidential debate, CNN chief political correspondent Dana Bash and political director David Chalian boasted that former Vice President Joe Biden had what Democrats called the “chicken soup appeal.” According to them, this special appeal manifested in Biden’s ability to consistently remain the frontrunner and possibly be the cure for the illness, which was supposedly President Trump.
While CNN’s panels of partisan analysts and journalists had their thoughts on which Democratic candidates did well in their debate, co-host Chris Cuomo stated it best when he deduced that “the consensus, though, is that this was not the type of night of ambition we expected.” One analyst was so distraught he declared he was “dispirited.” Not what the Democratic National Committee wanted to hear going into the Iowa caucuses.
CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter completely dismissed the Project Veritas tapes exposing CNN in a podcast with Charles Sykes of the Trump-hating site The Bulwark. Stelter touted CNN spokesman Matt Dornic simply tweeting "Yawn" in reaction. "I don't think O'Keefe has published anything surprising or newsworthy," he claimed. "There's no there there to the claims O'Keefe is promoting."
Immediately following a Tuesday address by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announcing Democrats were moving forward with the impeachment process against President Trump, CNN praised it as a truly “historic” moment.

Following Wednesday’s portion of the first 2020 Democratic debate, CNN’s exclusively liberal panel decided that Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA) was the winner, while some thought it belonged to former HUD Secretary Julian Castro.

And the winner of the first half of the first Democratic Party primary debates was...According to most of CNN’s post-debate analysts and commentators, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.

The liberal media often suggest President Trump was the one with thin skin; just look at how they lionize Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s jabs at him. But during Tuesday’s Anderson Cooper 360, CNN proved themselves to be the ones with thinner skin when they cut away from Trump’s 2020 campaign launch rally in Orlando, Florida after the crowd started chanting “CNN sucks”.
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.
