In an especially absurd Thursday morning airing of CNN Newsroom, host Jim Sciutto and CNN senior political analyst John Avlon made a couple leaps of logic, as well as an extremely ironic remark, regarding President Trump and Fox News. This came after a fast and furious “fact-checking” series done after the President told a “flurry of lies” about Mueller, Russia, and the USS John McCain on the White House driveway.
On Tuesday morning’s CNN Newsroom, host Jim Sciutto and CNN political commentator Errol Louis discussed a wacky theory regarding what constitutes voter suppression. Apparently, it’s just “muted negative campaigning.” Rather than dismiss this take, Sciutto loved it
Did you know the migrant caravan of thousands moving up from Central America through Mexico towards the American border doesn't exist? Well, if you believe the "facts first" CNN, that must be the case. You see, its political commentator Errol Louis declared on Tuesday morning's CNN Newsroom on Tuesday that the caravan was "imaginary."
Appearing as a guest on Sunday's New Day show, CNN political commentator and Spectrum News anchor Errol Louis claimed that President Donald Trump was "blaming the victim" by recommending armed guards at houses of worship in the aftermath of the synagogue attack in Pittsburgh. The liberal analyst also dismissed the idea of using more gun ownership to ward off such shootings as "trying to have a better shootout."
CNN’s already shaky credibility took a pretty big hit last week after Michael Cohen’s attorney, Lanny Davis came out and admitted he was the key source behind their erroneous reporting that suggested President Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting in advance. Despite host Brian Stelter being on vacation, nothing was different during Sunday’s Reliable Sources with John Avlon at the helm, as he and the panel tried to downplay the controversy as something that “happens all the time”.
Over the past couple of days, CNN has repeatedly cited a Kaiser Family Foundation poll which claims that 67 percent of Americans support the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision which limits the government's ability to restrict abortion. But other polling casts serious doubt on whether most of the public actually supports the specifics of Roe, as the Barna Group last year found that almost 70 percent of Americans would support a heartbeat law which bans abortion after an unborn baby's heartbeat can be detected. Such a restriction could only be enforced if Roe were overturned.
One of CNN’s most blatant hypocrisies is their double standard when it comes slamming Fox News hosts for their relationships with President Trump. This criticism could be valid if those same CNN employees didn’t spend their free time palling around with those out to carve out their pound of flesh. The latest example of this was exposed via a late night tweet from a former aide to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) showing CNN host Don Lemon, among other journalists, having a grand old time with “creepy porn lawyer” Michael Avenatti.
Of course, following the resignation of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D) for allegations of beating his various girlfriends over the years, a key concern for the liberal media has been ensuring his litany of litigation against President Trump would continue onward. It was a major point of discussion during CNN Newsroom Tuesday afternoon as host Brianna Keilar questioned CNN political commentator and New York City journalist Errol Louis about the future of the numerous lawsuits.
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.
On CNN's New Day Wednesday morning, co-host Chris Cuomo claimed that serious allegations of voter fraud are "B.S.": "Is there a second line to this story in terms of what this commission is about other than the obvious, which is trying to put meat on the bones of a B.S. allegation."
In multiple appearances on CNN on Monday, CNN political commentator and Spectrum News political anchor Errol Louis fretted over the Republican effort to bar the filibuster of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. Louis called such a move "radical action" as he appeared on CNN's New Day, and, appearing later on CNN Newsroom, he worried that such an action would begin a precedent that would result in the Supreme Court "greatly denuded from what the Founders wanted," and becoming "just a branch of the Senate, in effect." Over the weekend on New Day Saturday, Louis was notably also still agitated over retired General Michael Flynn leading "lock her up" chants against Hillary Clinton during the presidential campaign as the CNN commentator declared that it was "one of the ugliest moments in politics I've ever seen in 30 years."
On CNN Thursday night, the proverbial moving of the goal posts regarding the Jeff Sessions situation was on full display, shifting from demanding recusal in Russian investigations to resignation and calls for charges of perjury and treason.
