    Collusion? You want to see some collusion? Check out CNN’s Alisyn Camerota this morning. She expressed reluctance in outing the anonymous author of yesterday’s New York Times op-ed. Camerota gave two reasons for her reluctance: [snip] 2. “I also am uncomfortable going too far in trying to out this person who wasn’t, clearly, ready to be outed, because this person argues that they are doing important work inside the White House or inside the administration and therefore doesn’t want to be outed right now.” Let’s break this down. [snip] As to not wanting to out anonymous because “this person argues...

    Is it the role of a network host to call out Ivanka Trump by name to pay for the visit of a heroine of the left? Alisyn Camerota apparently thinks so. Interviewing Lilly Ledbetter today, whose failed pay-discrimination lawsuit led to the passage of the Fair Pay Act named in her honor, Camerota mentioned that Ledbetter had reached out to Ivanka Trump. Ledbetter said that Ivanka had responded saying she’d be glad to meet, but that Ledbetter hasn’t been able to get to DC to meet because “I don’t have the financial situation to buy a plane ticket and stay...

  • Fake News: CNN's 'Trump Voter' Actually an Anti-Trump Socialist

    Newsbusters ^ | August 11, 2018 | P.J. Gladnick
    On Tuesday CNN again treated supposed Trump voters as lab rats to analyze their current attitudes towards the President. As Newsbusters' Brad Wilmouth observed, CNN hinted that "Half of Trump Voters Regret Support for 'Monster.'" However, since then it has been revealed that that supposed apple Trump voter calling the President a monster on the "facts first" CNN panel was actually a virulently anti-Trump socialist banana. As Vincent James of the Red Elephants channel on YouTube revealed, those facts about the true political views of panelist Jeremy Montanez were easily available online but for CNN it seems that it's really facts last if...

    When it comes to the law, who you gonna believe: legal scholars, or Alisyn Camerota, with her American University degree in “broadcast journalism?” On CNN this morning, co-host Camerota claimed that it was an “open and shut case” that it was a crime for the Trump campaign to meet with Russians for the purpose of taking dirt on Hillary from them. Always one to keep an open mind, Camerota added: “I don’t want to parse this anymore. The law says you can’t do this. It’s very clear. The law explicitly says you cannot do this.” Except that, when it comes...
  • The secret Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani know about the Russia probe

    The biggest misconception surrounding the special counsel probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election is that it will likely end in some sort of legal proceeding involving President Donald Trump. It won't -- for a bunch of reasons, the most important of which is that Robert Mueller, who is running the investigation, doesn't seem to believe a sitting President can be indicted. The much more likely outcome is that Mueller releases the findings from his investigation sometime this fall — and lets the chips, as they relate to Trump, fall where they may. Which means — and this is...

    Michael Avenatti blew off a scheduled appearance on CNN this morning. Did Stormy Daniels’ lawyer know he was going to be subjected to some unexpectedly pointed questioning? [snip] Cuomo and Camerota were surprisingly skeptical about Avenatti’s claims. Said Cuomo at one point: “there’s a lot of smoke about what Avenatti put out. And he’s got a lot of explaining to do.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • CNN’s Camerota: Why Call Caravan of Illegal Immigrants an ‘Invasion?'

    04/06/2018 7:54:29 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 50 replies ^ | April 6, 2018 | Randy Hall
    CNN's New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota once again revealed her liberal bias regarding illegal immigration on Friday morning, when she asked guest and Republican Congressman Mo Brooks (Ala.) why he used the word “invasion” while discussing the caravan of migrants who headed for the American border earlier this week. Brooks, who discussed the topic from an economic perspective during the interview, responded: “Because that’s the word that applies.” Camerota began the segment by reading a statement released by Brooks while emphasizing certain words. I fully support President Trump’s use of our military to secure the border against invasion by foreign...

    If this is the kind of lawyer Harvard is turning out, it could be time to close up shop in Cambridge . . . CNN legal analyst and Harvard Law alum Areva Martin argued this morning that Stormy Daniels is not bound by her agreement with Michael Cohen not to discuss her alleged affair with Donald Trump, because Trump, per his statement of yesterday, was unaware that Cohen had paid Stormy $130,000. Martin’s reasoning was so transparently flawed that co-host Alisyn Camerota had no trouble demolishing it: Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    CNN host Alisyn Camerota expressed surprise during a Friday interview that any colleges turned down David Hogg, the Parkland, Fla., high school student who has become a major figure in the nation's gun violence debate. Fox News host Laura Ingraham apologized to Hogg and lost advertisers after she mocked him on Twitter for being rejected by four colleges. “I am stunned that four colleges rejected you,” Camerota said on Friday. “What kind of dumbass colleges don’t want you? You have taken the country by storm. How do you explain this? Did they reject you before the Parkland massacre?”

    I slapped the side of my TV to make sure it was tuned to the right channel. But yup, that was indeed CNN and Chris Cuomo, opening a discussion on the news that North Korea has indicated a willingness to discuss denuclearization, with praise for President Trump: “You have to say congratulations to the Trump administration. They were able to move the ball here.” And the rest of the panel — Alisyn Camerota, David Gregory, and Chris Cillizza — joined in acknowledging that this is a significant achievement for Trump.

    On CNN this morning, host Alisyn Camerota used a survivor of the Parkland school shooting to launch an attack on Tomi Lahren, who had tweeted [see below] a call for the left to give grieving families 24 hours before talking about gun control. After displaying the tweet and inviting the young woman to express her reaction [it made her angry], Camerota got down to business, editorializing: “I was so struck by what you said. While it was happening, while you all were under siege, hiding behind desks, as Kelsey was, hiding in closets, you were all talking about it. So...

    FULL TITLE: Jeffrey Toobin Mentioned The Time Trump Accused Obama Of Wiretapping Him And CNN New Days Hosts Immediately Changed The Topic CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin mentioned allegations of former President Barack Obama wiretapping President Donald Trump’s campaign, Friday on “New Day,” and hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman couldn’t change the subject fast enough. Toobin began the segment claiming average Americans couldn’t follow along with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) memo because it was too complex for them. “I think the Nunes memo is such a complicated story, frankly, that ordinary civilians have a hard time following,”...

    Henry, Henry, Henry! You’re not supposed to admit on national TV that your vote is a cynical stunt! This was hilarious: a politician openly admitting that his intended vote on an important matter would be a stunt, and one he would change if his vote actually counted for something. Appearing on CNN this morning, Dem Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas repeatedly said that he would vote “no” on the continuing budget resolution . . . unless his vote was actually needed to avoid a shutdown. In which case he would vote “yes.” CNN host Alisyn Camerota called Cuellar out for...

    As Michigan Democratic Rep. Debbie Dingell appeared as a guest on Tuesday's New Day, CNN host Alisyn Camerota at one point seemed to fret that businesses are planning to pay out bonuses after the tax cuts were passed as a way of making their employees grateful to Republicans for their pay increase and coax them to vote for the GOP -- and that the ploy might succeed. At 7:24 a.m., as Rep. Dingell complained that she wants President Donald Trump to do more on economic issues like infrastructure and health care, Camerota began setting up her next question: ALISYN CAMEROTA:...

    Juanita Broaddrick, hello? Or does the name Paula Jones perhaps ring a bell? CNN political analyst Karoun Demirjian tried this morning to downplay the seriousness of Bill Clinton’s sexual misconduct compared to that alleged of Roy Moore. In Moore’s case, said Demirjian, “those were children.” [To her credit, host Alisyn Camerota jumped in and suggested “underage” instead of “children.”] As for Clinton, the only specific case Demirjian mentioned was that of Monica Lewinsky. Demirjian described it as an “affair” that “might have been consensual.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    If Roy Moore’s supposed inscription in Beverly Young Nelson’s yearbook were real, Nelson’s lawyer Gloria Allred be running to the best handwriting expert in America to authenticate it. And she would make sure the authentication was completed prior to the election. Instead, under surprisingly intense questioning by Alisyn Camerota on CNN this morning, Allred bobbed, weaved and refused to agree to turn over the yearbook to an independent examiner.

    North Korea has threatened to fire missiles at Guam, a US territory home to thousands of US citizens and a major US Air Force base. What if the missiles fell short or missed the island? What’s the big deal? It’s “just a missile test.” That was the thrust of CNN host Alisyn Camerota statement this morning: “If these missiles, if they do this, and if these go into the waters off Guam, they don’t hit Guam, then isn’t this just another sort of provocation and a missile test? Does it have to be responded to with force?” View the video...

    Russia, Russia, Russia. We're here to talk about Trump/Russia: get it? Don't go distracting us with talk of the DNC working with Ukraine to dig up dirt on Trump! This morning on CNN, Alisyn Camerota and John Berman co-hosted a segment with Stephen Miller, a former Trump campaign aide, and Dem consultant Hilary Rosen. Miller tried to raise this Politico story, which reported that Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary, meeting with a DNC consultant to research damaging information on Trump and his advisers. Berman cautiously suggested that, even though the Russia and Trump situations weren't "apples to apples,"...

    CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota announced on Wednesday that she’s “breaking up” with Twitter because it’s become “mean and verbally abusive.” "It's over. I'm breaking up with you," wrote the co-anchor of CNN's "New Day." "You're a shadow of your former self, the one I was first attracted to. It's no fun to be with you anymore.” "You've become mean and verbally abusive,” she continued. “In fact, you gross me out. You're a cesspool of spleen-venting from people who think it's acceptable to insult other people in public and anonymously." Camerota went on to say that she won’t miss Twitter “for...
