Jussie Smollett’s all but confirmed hate crime hoax provided a huge misstep for lefty journalists, celebrities and politicians, who were immediately ready to take his inconsistent story at face value and hit common Americans over the head with it. As soon as the Empire actor began peddling his bizarre story, the whole showbiz world came to his support, hysterically calling it evidence of a white supremacy and anti-LGBTQ epidemic.
CNN’s New Day provided more tone deafness Monday morning on the part of the establishment media in reaction to reports that actor Jussie Smollett orchestrated and staged an early-morning attack against him last month in Chicago. But there were some surprising takes, most notably New York Times columnist Charles Blow admitting that, if reports are true, that makes Smollett an “insane” “psychopath.”
To prove that there's a border emergency, President Trump must stop eating omelets! Ridiculous, you might say. And yet, on this morning's New Day, CNN's John Avlon, Alisyn Camerota and Jeff Toobin mocked President Trump for eating an omelet, somehow suggesting it debunks the existence of an emergency. In bonus coverage, Jeffrey Toobin predicts Trump will win a legal challenge to his emergency declaration.
The liberal media got burned by Jussie Smollett’s apparent hate crime hoax because they wanted to believe the cartoonish image they concocted for Trump supporters and conservatives. The media ate it hook line and sinker and ran with it without the facts. But on Saturday, CNN media reporter and host of the so-call “Reliable Sources” program, Brian Stelter tied to distance the media from their shame.
Just a few days after the liberal media were burned by the hoax that was the claims against the Covington Kids, the liberal media proved they didn’t learn a lesson by running right back to the stove to ultimately get burned by the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax. During CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday, libertarian commentator and podcaster Kmele Foster called out folks in the media for their “rush to judgment” based on their preconceived notions of Trump supporters.
On Friday's CNN Tonight, conservative CNN contributor Steve Cortes was outnumbered 2-1 as host Don Lemon and frequent guest and Donald Trump critic Rick Wilson lambasted him for supporting President Trump's plan to declare a national emergency to build a border wall.
CNN claimed after the president's press conference on Friday that their "hearts go out" to "Angel moms," who lost children due to illegal immigrants. But they couldn't stick to empathy. In fact, the words "Angel mom" only emerged on CNN on ten occasions so far in the Trump era. All ten were uttered by the president, his press secretary, or pro-Trump CNN analysts.
On Friday's New Day show, CNN co-host John Berman allowed Georgia Democratic Congresswoman Lucy McBath to mislead viewers on a proposed new gun law being considered in Congress as she claimed it would require background checks when purchasing from "licensed" gun dealers. In reality, licensed gun dealers are already required to conduct background checks, and the purpose of the new law is to require private sellers who are unlicensed to also conduct such checks.
In another raucous press conference self-aggrandizing liberal journalist Jim Acosta battled with Donald Trump over the President’s plan to declare a national emergency in order to build a border wall. After Trump told Acosta he was “fake news” and that CNN “has an agenda,” an Angel Mom walked up to the journalist in the Rose Garden and told him about her murdered child.
On Thursday, CNN broke an incredibly startling claim by Michael Avenatti, the former lawyer of adult film star Stormy Daniels, who claimed to possess a tape of R&B singer R. Kelly engaging in sexual acts with an underage girl. Perhaps equally surprisingly CNN host Ana Cabrera claimed some at her network had watched the tape, though she offered no explanation as to how the network had access to it. Cabrera also did mention the LA Times's reporting from earlier that day that Avenatti would be relinquishing control of his law firm after being accused of illegally concealing millions of dollars.
The media are using the one year anniversary of the Parkland, Florida shooting to push for more gun control. It’s something they started doing immediately after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.The following is a collection of the media’s ugliest attacks on gun rights supporters after the Parkland, Florida shooting.
On the one-year anniversary of the Parkland school shootings, CNN anchor Erin Hill gave no pushback on the New Day show after she invited Florida Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Mucarsel-Powell to promote a gun control plan being considered by Congress. The same CNN show that has recently dismissed arguments in favor of border security that could save many lives each year also apparently saw no irony in the congresswoman pulling out the old "if it saves just one life" argument to justify infringing on the rights of law-abiding American citizens to acquire guns.
