Though it wasn’t quite to the same level of obsession that we saw with Hillary Clinton, her Chipotle stop, and her Scooby Doo van, the liberal media were still enthralled Thursday with former Vice President Joe Biden finally launching his 2020 presidential bid. And CNN was there providing more than enough moments with a few coming in a segment on CNN Newsroom gushing about his aviators, his supposed authenticity, and his hire of their CNN colleague Symone Sanders.
Surprisingly, CNN journalists on Thursday did what the networks have largely not been interested in: They looked at Joe Biden’s poor performance in presidential campaigns and his plagiarism problems. CNN Politics Reporter Chris Cillizza dove into the 1988 scandal in which Biden appeared to directly lift from a British Labour politician named Neil Kinnock. Cillizza noted that the Democrat didn’t even make it into calendar year 1988 before being forced to drop out. He explained, “[Biden] gives a speech that is very similar to a speech that a British Labour politician named Neal Kinnock and it leads to his demise.”
CNN host Brooke Baldwin closed the 3:00 PM ET hour of CNN Newsroom by mentioning that “the UN Security Council passed a resolution to protect wartime rape victims” before complaining that “it was missing some key language that mentioned sexual and reproductive health.” Baldwin brought in CNN Senior Diplomatic Correspondent Michelle Kosinski to discuss the matter further. Kosinski attributed the absence of the language to the Trump administration and proceeded to portray the administration as heartless for taking the language out of the resolution.
During his appearance on Tuesday’s Cuomo Prime Time, former Attorney General Michael Mukasey didn’t shy away from calling Chris Cuomo out for “misleading a lot of people” when it came to the findings of the special counsel investigation. In a brilliant display of schooling the so-called “Facts First” network, Mukasey went toe-to-toe with blowhard host and outclassed him at every turn.
In the past, former CNN host Piers Morgan has sympathized with the liberal point of view and especially when it comes to theSecond Amendment and traditional values. However, he has recently emerged as a defender of President Trump. During an appearance on Hannity Monday night, Morgan ripped the liberal media for its coverage of the Mueller report.
All aboard the crazy train! On Tuesday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, liberal media janitor and Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter appeared alongside host Brooke Baldwin to complain about the Trump administration boycotting Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner (WHCD), which is arguably the most pompous, self-worshipping annual celebration known to man (besides Hollywood awards shows). Because after all, there’s no profession that loves itself more than the national press!
A CNN New Day panel painted Kamala Harris as the loser in last night's CNN town halls. Three CNN journalists criticized her for not offering "something bold," instead using the "let's have a conversation about that" dodge. Alisyn Camerota got in a zinger at the end, suggesting that if Harris wanted to have a conversation, a town hall just might have been the right place to do it. Ouch!
Far-left Senator Bernie Sanders shocked many on Monday night as he lobbied for the restoration of voting rights for the Boston Marathon bomber, as well as those guilty of sexual assault. But you wouldn’t know this if you relied on the network morning shows. ABC, CBS and NBC, despite a combined six hours of available air time on Tuesday, ignored the startling comments, remarks that even baffled liberal CNN host Chris Cuomo.
Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter opened the show Sunday by talking about how the Mueller report revealed “a White House of lies, lies like nothing this nation has ever seen before.” Stelter proceeded to give a lecture about “morality,” as he and his guests tried to make the argument that the immoral behavior outlined in the Mueller report makes President Trump unfit to hold office.
Monday night was truly a marathon for CNN as they aired five back-to-back town halls with Democratic 2020 candidates. Yet, despite it being only one day after the massive coordinated terrorist attack in Sri Lanka by Islamic extremists that mainly targeted Christians with almost 300 dead and 500 injured, CNN offered zero questions about anti-Christian bigotry. Instead, CNN asked those candidates eight combined questions on impeaching President Trump.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Monday’s Fox & Friends and responded to the latest insults from ever-bitter CNN political analyst and American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan, who had stated on Thursday that Sanders “can’t” be “trust[ed]” and quipped that she should have her head “lopp[ed]....off.”
MSNBC and CNN are pushing impeachment harder than the Dem presidential candidates themselves. On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski suggests Democrats have a "patriotic duty" to impeach and MSNBC contributor Adrienne Elrod twice says that Dems have "no choice" but to impeach. On CNN's New Day, Alisyn Camerota reacts almost angrily to Jeffrey Toobin's flat assertion that Dems won't impeach. Camerota says "I'm not so sure. The feeling is today . . . is that if you don't do something [impeach], if you're Congress and you don't do something, then you're saying that the President is above the law."
