In spite of all the solidly liberal positions that Democratic politicians adopt in order to win their party's nomination for various offices, CNN host Don Lemon on Monday claimed that the party is actually a "centrist party" as he and liberal contributor Joe Lockhart discussed the popularity of the far-left Bernie Sanders.
Less than an hour after CNN’s Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer conceded Thursday that “Democrats look like they’re in trouble,” the Erin Burnett OutFront panel lambasted CNN’s beloved 2020 Democrat and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for a question that many deemed over the line about the legitimacy of the Supreme Court and Chief Justice John Roberts.
A week after being roasted for tweeting a fake conversation between Republican senators, CNN political commentator and former Clinton White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart claimed Wednesday night during the Senate trial’s dinner break that an argument used by Trump legal team member Alan Dershowitz was “un-American” and akin to those used by “authoritarian people” to justify “genocide.”
It’s hard to keep track of all the fake news, these days. It seems covering for Democrats lying isn’t good enough for CNN anymore; now, their analysts are helping the Democrats’ impeachment effort by fabricating stories themselves. Case in point? Wednesday, CNN analyst Joe Lockhart tweeted an appalling conversation he overheard between two Republican Senators during that day’s impeachment trial, only to admit later that he had made the whole thing up.
During Tuesday night’s dinner break in the impeachment trial, CNN put forward a case that January 21, 2020 will be day of infamy for President Trump. AC360 and Erin Burnett OutFront offered guest after guest that not only agreed with one another, but plunged further into political analysis divorced from reality. CNN political analyst and resident drama king Carl Bernstein stated on AC360 at the end of the break that Tuesday “was devastating for the President of the United States both short term and long term.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is receiving rave reviews from the media for angrily lecturing a reporter during a press conference Thursday. That’s right, the same media who hysterically cries the United States is turning into North Korea because President Trump sometimes calls hostile reporters “enemy of the people,” is now lauding a Democrat politician for lashing out at a conservative reporter over his pointed question.
On CNN’s New Day Friday, co-hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Avlon brought on former Clinton White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart to praise how his former boss behaved during his impeachment process, as compared to President Trump. The liberal journalists also griped that Republicans were too partisan to get on board with impeachment, something that could’ve been said about the liberal media in the ‘90s.
CNN journalists are still expressing remorse over how they covered the 2016 election, particularly as it relates to Clinton scandals. Despite giving an overwhelming amount of negative coverage to Trump, CNN’s chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin complained on Monday's New Day, they shouldn’t have given any attention to the Clinton private email server, calling it a “big nothing” that cost Clinton the election.
On Monday morning, in the aftermath of a mass shooting spree in Texas from the weekend, CNN personalities were again pushing for more gun laws, including "universal background checks." CNN's three-hour New Day morning show discussed the issue in four segments, and only had guests with left-leaning views on the issue of gun control. Not only did liberal Republican contributor Ana Navarro slam the NRA and declare that she was "sick" of politicians giving "thoughts and prayers" instead of passing more gun control, CNN contributor Andrew McCabe made the questionable claim that "universal background checks" might have prevented two high-profile mass shootings as he repeated the myth of the Charleston loophole.
President Trump’s Twitter account has caught the ire of CNN’s New Day, with his comments about the city of Baltimore and Rep. Elijah Cummings having set ablaze yet another media firestorm. This time Rep. Mark Meadows was caught in the crossfire.
Appearing as a guest on New Day Sunday, liberal CNN contributor Joe Lockhart claimed that anyone who votes for President Donald Trump in 2020 is a "racist" no matter what their reasons are for doing so. His comments came during a discussion of President Trump attacking Maryland Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings over the poor conditions that exist in his Baltimore-based district in response to the Maryland Democrat attacking the President over the treatment of illegal immigrant children.
All kinds of Democrats said it, so why not their allies in the media? I’m speaking here of the media chorus that insisted — insisted — that what President Trump, in an Oval Office address to the nation in January called a “humanitarian crisis” at the border — was in fact nothing more than a “manufactured crisis.”
