During Thursday’s The Lead, CNN political commentator Mary Katherine Ham deflated more than a few balloons when pointing out that he’s “happy to talk about” Attorney General Bill Barr’s letter on the Mueller report “because...it’s very good news for America” that the President “did not collude with a hostile foreign government.”
Thursday’s nationwide collusion effort by about 350 newspapers didn’t do much of anything to convince skeptics that they’re not out to get President Trump. Rather, editorials denouncing Trump showed the arrogant yet thin-skinned nature of the media. And CNN’s Jim Acosta perfectly encapsulated that on The Situation Room. Filling in for Wolf Blitzer, Acosta had the show shift gears to “a very important issue that's near and dear to our hearts here at CNN” as “more than 300 newspapers across the country banded together today in support of the free press.”
CNN's Monday Situation Room tortured its audience with an out-of-thin-air assessment by Ron Brownstein that James Comey's book and his public visibility would hurt President Donald Trump's standing with white, college-educated voters — because they "look like" him. This is what passes for "analysis" on the formerly serious cable news network.
Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh took on CNN senior political analyst Ron Brownstein and CNN Tonight host Don Lemon during his eponymous Thursday show, thrashing Brownstein for condemning criticism of the FBI and Lemon for being “totally blind to any opposing view.”
Talk about twisting yourself into a pretzel. On Monday morning’s CNN Newsroom, two CNN pundits determined that Hillary Clinton reading Fire and Fury at the Grammy Awards might not have been smart, but the far-left politicization of award shows shouldn’t be condemned and instead taken to heart due to the “damage” President Trump has caused to “the Republican brand.”
During the past month, many establishment press pundits have pivoted from believing that Republicans will suffer major losses in the 2018 midterm elections because they haven't accomplished anything to predicting that Republicans will suffer major losses now that they have. They're now saying that the just-signed tax law, which they have declared is and will remain deeply unpopular (if so, that will be thanks mostly to their beat reporters' dishonest coverage), likely causing the GOP to lose a large number of seats, just as ObamaCare's passage led to serious Democratic Party losses in 2010. These attempts to draw a parallel fail for one obvious reason: ObamaCare's effective date was deliberately delayed for almost four years, while the just-signed tax law has gone into effect immediately.
On Tuesday’s CNN New Day, reporters were eager to scold Republicans for daring to demand fiscally responsible disaster relief funding and fretted that such concerns would cause federal aid for Texas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey to become “mired” by congressional Republicans.
The liberal media never help themselves, do they? Late Monday night, they showed just how shamelessly hypocritical they are when it comes to civility, trashing cancer-stricken Republican Senator John McCain (Ariz.) as someone who would send millions to their deaths by voting on the motion to proceed for repealing and replacing ObamaCare.
Over the past few weeks, the Democrats/media have been pushing the narrative that evil Senate Republicans are hiding their non-existent health care bill from the public. CNN New Day host Chris Cuomo went as far as to say...
Monday morning, CNN Senior Political Analyst Ron Brownstein suggested that when it came to withholding information in an open Senate hearing, there is no difference between private tobacco executives and the heads of the country’s intelligence agencies...
During a dramatically one-sided panel discussion in the 8 a.m. ET hour of CNN’s New Day on Monday, political analyst David Gregory wailed that the firing of FBI Director James Comey was “a crisis the President has created by abusing his power, by creating an atmosphere in which we don’t know who we can trust in the White House...”
As The Root's Jason Johnson appeared as a panel member on Wednesday's New Day on CNN, the race-obsessed political analyst was true to form as he took his latest opportunity to trash White House advisor Steve Bannon, this time calling him an "anti-Semite" and someone who "sympathizes with white terrorist organizations," as he received no pushback from CNN hosts Alisyn Camerota or Chris Cuomo over his incendiary charges.
