CNN was called the 'Clinton News Network' during the 90s for a reason. After letting Bill Clinton get away with his ridiculous excuse for supporting a temporary extension of the Bush tax cuts, Wolf Blitzer kissed up to the former president by fawning over his daughter Chelsea in the Thursday interview.
And Blitzer had a sugary introduction ready. "[W]hen we spoke about the President's daughter, Chelsea, his face lit up with pride," Blitzer cooed.
Are journalists supposed to sound like next-door neighbors marveling over how the kids on the block are all grown-up? "I have known her since she was 13 years old when you guys came to Washington," Blitzer told Clinton.
Speaking of Chelsea's recent presentation at a Vital Voices event, he gushed that "I looked at her and I saw in her eyes as I was watching her, she was very impressive. I saw the best of Bill Clinton and the best of Hillary Clinton in Chelsea Clinton."
Just this past Monday, The Situation Room had more soft coverage of Clinton as it played a lengthy four-minute clip of him speaking at a Democratic fund raiser from the previous night. Clinton took shots at the Republicans and CNN was simply content to echo his attacks without any scrutiny, chuckling that he "gets away with a lot" now that he is out of office.
A transcript of the segment, which aired on June 7 on The Situation Room at 5:55 p.m. EDT, is as follows:

The docs didn’t do anything to the mule teeth?
Got the same ability as her mom is keeping an honest husband.
No big deal here-
the Kennedy family?- all great!
Dan Edwards— so much potential !
Joe Biden- the smartest guy in town!
Nancy pelosi- the smartest woman ...
Get the drift- if you are a Demon rat you can do no wrong. So Chelsea is being groomed for...VP?,senator?
Father: He has my looks.
Mother: He has my brains.
Rodney Dangerfield: And my sympathy!
This is fawning at its most disgusting.
Poor Chelsea. I’ve never heard the girl speak but ...
what ever happened to Webb Hubble? Is he still with us.
I don’t know how smart Chelsea is, but she’s not a pretty girl.
22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
..................The docs didnt do anything to the mule teeth?.....................
She wants to continue to be able to eat an ear of corn through a chain link fence!
I laughed so hard when I saw that!
Bubba ruined one of Chelsea’s dresses, too?
those some ugly kids, and I mean ugly.
I have been laughing for 5 minutes about mule teeth!
Ugly and immune to the truth?
Am I close?
She looks pretty good, once she got de-Webbed.
presidio9, those are dramatic shots. Thanks.
Oh good grief...Chelsea Clinton is 32 years old. The fact that these sycophants feel the need to prop her up at her age is more embarrassing to her than anything.
Correct! Hillary and Web Hubbel.Of course there was not a hellofalot of best to get from Hillary.
