On Wednesday night, CNN continued its unholy and fact-devoid crusade to tar and feather every one of President Trump’s new high-profile government hires as nothing more than a clueless Trump stooge off the street or a Fox News personality. This time, their unfortunate target was Navy Rear Admiral Dr. Ronny Jackson hours after the President nominated him to be the new Secretary of the Department for Veteran’s Affairs.
As documented on NewsBusters, CNN has a porn problem and bizarre obsession with describing the sexual escapades of porn actress Stormy Daniels and seeking sultry details of an alleged affair with President Trump. Tuesday’s The Situation Room showed this infatuation as the panel circled the wagons after a tweet by Daniels about her “NOT going anywhere.”
It was quite a sight on the Thursday editions of CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront and MSNBC’s Hardball as liberal journalists heaped effusive praise on President Trump for his “remarkable,” “significant,” and “stunning” willingness to meet soon with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. All the while, each network’s former Obama administration officials experienced weapons-grade meltdowns.
On Tuesday, it didn’t take long for the liberal media to move from learning about what happened at the deadly school shooting in Florida and the victims to lobbying for gun control. Ghoulishly, CNN law enforcement analyst Phil Mudd, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews, and MSNBC’s The 11th Hour host Brian Williams chose to condemn America as an exceptional country due to its gun policies.
Sometimes when someone seems to be ready for commitment to the Funny Farm he can be unintentionally...funny. Such is apparently the case with CNN's counterterrorism analyst Philip Mudd whose attitude since the election of President Donald Trump resides somewhere between deranged and unhinged.
In the contest for Most Offended News Network after President Trump reportedly referred to African nations as “s***hole” countries, CNN should win hands down. NewsBusters staff combed through CNN transcripts on Nexis for the S-hole word in the 24 hours of January 12 – the first full day after The Washington Post reported the controversy – and found CNN staffers and CNN guests uncorked the profanity 195 times in one day. Compare that to Fox News Channel. Their curse count was zero. FNC told staff and guests not to say it.
On Thursday’s The Situation Room, CNN analysts and correspondents brought out the long knives for President Trump after his disturbing and startling comments about certain countries being “sh***holes,” using it to bludgeon home the notion that Trump is “racist” and “inject[ing] a lot of poison” into the immigration debate.
CNN presidential historian Douglas Brinkley has been unhinged in offering deranged meltdowns before, but this one during Friday’s At This Hour was perhaps his worst. Whining about the lack of “climate activism” from the Trump administration, Brinkley bemoaned President Trump’s “embarrassing” G-20 trip leading to “a shrinking of American prestige.”
On Thursday morning, CNN's New Day was at it again, pushing Democratic talking points. Co-host Alisyn Camerota and CNN reporter Suzanne Malveaux were perplexed that House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) would subpoena for information regarding the unmasking of Americans’ names, such as Michael Flynn’s, in intelligence reports.
On Thursday morning, CNN’s New Day linked President Trump’s frequent criticism of the liberal media to Montana Congressional candidate Greg Gianforte’s violent incident with a reporter Wednesday evening. Appearing on the morning show, The Washington Post’s Karoun Demirjian whined: “You’ve got this kind of culture of, you know, reporters are the enemy going on and it depends. You see a lot of Democrats pointing the finger at the President right now. Saying you created, you helped create, at least, this culture where people..."
On Wednesday's New Day on CNN, it was another case of Philip Mudd going over the top into violent imagery against a Republican official as the CNN counterterrorism analyst declared that South Carolina Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy "ought to have his a** kicked" for asking former CIA Director John Brennan if he had seen "evidence" of the Donald Trump campaign colluding with Russia. Last December, Mudd notably flew off the handle about then-RNC official Sean Spicer as he proclaimed that he would like to "jump through the TV" and "take him behind the shed," tearing into Spicer as "someone who doesn't know his a** from a hole in the ground."
CNN claims it’s right down the middle, somewhere between the left-wing MSNBC and the more conservative-friendly Fox News Channel. But an MRC study of an entire day of CNN’s coverage shows the network spent almost all of its time covering the Trump presidency, with a heavily skewed roster of anti-Trump guests and on-air commentators.
