On Thursday's New Day on CNN, during a discussion of the Trump administration's commission on voter fraud, the regular CNN panel members all pushed a liberal point of view of dismissing voter fraud, but playing up "voter disenfranchisement" as a problem allegedly more worthy of investigation. CNN analysts David Gregory and John Avlon joined CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota in hitting the issue from the left.
Who knew that two words could drive the people at CNN this crazy? At the network which has exemplified fake news since Donald Trump's election in 2016, the "resistance" to Trump's preference for saying "Merry Christmas" during this time of year has led network talking heads to repeated denials that there ever has been a war on Christmas, while at the same time trying to open new fronts in that war. We should rename this outfit GNN — the Grinch News Network.
Republicans celebrated a big win on Wednesday, and CNN Tonight anchor Don Lemon responded by mocking it as a “festival of flattery” for an egotistical president. Lemon pretended that this kind of gushing over a president has never been done in modern times, as if Lemon’s never watched network TV coverage of the Obamas, or the Clintons, or the Kennedys. He laughed and said, "My God, is that SNL? Is that real?"
During Brian Stelter’s Sunday morning media sermon on CNN’s Reliable Sources, he and his panel of media critics decried what they called "negative partisan" media and blamed it for dividing the country. Sounds pretty accurate, right? But according to them most of the blame for a divided country rested on the shoulders of conservative and right-leaning media outlets.
On Thursday's New Day, CNN hosts and commentators devoted a substantial portion of the show to fretting over President Donald Trump and Republicans having a double standard in not wanting to pass new gun laws after shootings, but being eager to pass new immigration restrictions after terrorism by Muslim radicals who trace back to other countries.
On Monday's CNN Tonight, CNN political commentator Angela Rye was the latest liberal analyst to claim that President Donald Trump disproportionately targets black women for ridicule. And on Friday, CNN commentator John Avlon similarly suggested Trump was targeting black women. Even though, as previously noted by NewsBusters, there are many white men and white women who have also been attacked by the President according to a list compiled by the New York Times.
On Friday's New Day CNN, it was demonstrated that, even when Republicans and the NRA seem to be finding agreement with liberals on a possible new gun restriction, it's a case of no good deed goes unpunished as CNN's Chris Cuomo responded by accusing the NRA of "hypocrisy," and by seeing "craven political BS" from some Republicans. And, in a graphic visible in the background during parts of the discussion, CNN even provocatively displayed an image of NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre alongside an image of Las Vegas mass murderer Stephen Paddock with the words "BANNING BUMP STOCKS" in between them.
As they so often do, Wednesday’s network morning shows all read from the same script of liberal talking points as hosts and correspondents warned viewers that “ultra-conservative” candidate Roy Moore was a “staunch conservative” who won Alabama’s Senate primary despite his “extreme conservative views.” Did they mention he was “extremely conservative”?
After news broke Wednesday night that the President may have struck a deal with Democratic congressional leaders to pass DACA legislation, on Thursday morning, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today gushed over how Trump “sounds like a Democrat” when discussing illegal immigration and tax reform.
On Wednesday's New Day, Chris Cuomo was displaying his liberal bias over and over again during discussions of President Donald Trump's decision to end the DACA program. The CNN host's commentary ranged from accusing Trump of "feeding fear and anger," to trying to give cover to former President Barack Obama by declaring that "Obama did not invent 'Dreamers."
As the left mobilizes mobs to tear down confederate statues (and peace monuments) from city-to-city, it was only a matter of time before they would be going after our Founding Fathers. On CNN Thursday morning, liberal analyst Angela Rye argued that our nation’s first president was as detestable as Robert E. Lee because he was a slave owner. “To me, I don't care if it's a George Washington statue or Thomas Jefferson, they all need to come down,” she said before ranting about America’s “very violent past.”
After Tuesday’s heated press conference over Charlottesville, the media has been in a renewed frenzy over Trump’s comments. Over at CNN, the outrage seemed to be at its worst, with hosts sounding just like their radically left-wing guests. On the 7am hour of CNN’s New Day, fill-in host Poppy Harlow actually asked liberal reporter and CNN analyst April Ryan if Trump's slogan “Make America Great Again” was referring to the days when the KKK terrorized the South.
