  • James Clapper did NOT say what Donald Trump keeps saying he said

    CNN Fake News ^ | 24 May 2018 | Chris Cillizza
    On Tuesday, James Clapper, the former Director of National Intelligence, went on "The View" -- weird, right? -- to talk about President Donald Trump and the intelligence community. During that interview, this exchange happened between Clapper and co-host Joy Behar: BEHAR: "So I ask you, was the FBI spying on Trump's campaign?" CLAPPER: "No, they were not. They were spying on, a term I don't particularly like, but on what the Russians were doing. Trying to understand were the Russians infiltrating, trying to gain access, trying to gain leverage or influence which is what they do." BEHAR: "Well, why doesn't...
  • CNN's Cillizza Continues to Desperately Cling to Russian Collusion Hope

    Chris Cillizza is back with his entertaining silliness and this time it takes the form of desperately hoping that evidence of Russian collusion could be found despite a year of intensive investigation by a House Committee, a Senate Committee, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team, and a horde of liberal journalists. Yet despite no such evidence having been found after all this time, Cillizza continues to cling to his collusion hope that maybe, somehow, his dream will come true in his March 14 column:

    In stark contrast to his CNN colleague Erin Burnett who gave President Donald Trump glowing praise for his upcoming meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Chris Cillizza went on a late Thursday night rant bitterly writing off any possible summit as more likely to resemble a reality TV show. Cillizza set the tone of his petulant diatribe by unflatteringly describing the two leaders as being very similar:

    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.

    Just how inappropriately political does a Democrat have to be to incur the wrath of even reliably liberal Chris Cillizza of CNN? About as self-serving as Florida Senator Bill Nelson who used Wednesday's CNN Town Hall meeting about the tragic Parkland, Florida shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to attack his likely campaign opponent later this year. Cillizza took the senator to task in What Bill Nelson got totally wrong in Wednesday's guns town hall:

    CNN’s Chris Cillizza called President Donald Trump and his followers “bonkers” and “crazy” last year for believing the FBI and the Clinton campaign were involved in the now-infamous Steele dossier. Cillizza chastised Trump and his cadre of followers in October of last year for suggesting and supporting the idea that Democrats and elements inside the FBI were involved in funding the dossier. He called them conspiracy theorists at the time. “He is suggesting that a dossier prepared by a former member of British intelligence has not only been totally discredited … but that it might have been funded by some...

    CNN gave us a useful Christmas present this morning, albeit a presumably unintentional one. A gift that, in the starkest terms, demonstrated the network’s liberal bias. CNN presented its “Naughty and Nice” lists for 2017. And, as compiled and presented by CNN politics reporter Chris Cillizza, late of the Washington Post, every single person on the Naughty list was a Republican. Ping to Liberal Media Bias list.

    CNN ^ | December 20, 2017 | By Chris Cillizza
    You would think that with President Donald Trump's approval ratings at historic lows for a first-year president, the candidate he beat in the 2016 election might see a similar improvement in their popularity numbers -- a sort-of buyer's remorse bump. That has not been the case with Hillary Clinton. In fact, the opposite has been true. Hillary Clinton's approval dipped to 36% in a December Gallup poll. Her unfavorable ratings -- at 61% -- also marked a new high (or low) for Clinton. Like with all poll findings, it's impossible to pinpoint a single reason that explains it. But, here...

    White House press secretary Sarah Sanders isn't a big fan of the media. Which is, of course, her right. The relationship between any White House and any press corps tasked with covering that White House is almost always fraught and fractious. But, on Monday, Sanders made an accusation that went way, way beyond the pale of the usual give and take between White House and press corps. Here's what she said: "There's a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposefully misleading the American people. Something that happens regularly. You can't say -- I'm not done. You can't say...

    (CNN)President Donald Trump did two big things on Monday morning before jetting off to Utah to announce he is shrinking two national monuments.1. He tweeted a full-scale endorsement of Roy Moore's Senate campaign in Alabama. "Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama," wrote Trump of the embattled Republican who faces a series of accusations from women that he pursued relationships with them when he was in his early 30 and they were teenagers. "We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military,...

    Drudge Report founder Matt Drudge, who knows of what he speaks, dropped a bomb Thursday with the newsy prediction that CNN chief Jeff Zucker is doomed. "Jeff Zucker out either way at CNN," Drudge wrote before adding, "primetime ratings abysmal. Feud with President Trump too personal and ridiculous ..." [Snip] The problem for last-place CNN, though, is that it has actual competition in the form of MSNBC and Fox, both of which are shellacking The Least Trustws Name In News in every conceivable metric. Moreover, when compared to the same month last year, CNN’s October 2017 ratings collapsed a whopping...

    ....This is, of course, somewhat common fare by this point in the arc of Trump's presidency. Faced this week with storylines he doesn't like -- questions about the Niger attack, controversy over a phone call he placed to the widow of one of the soldiers lost in that attack, Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Capitol Hill facing questions about Russian meddling in the election -- he aims to change the subject via his Twitter feed. And he often does so by lobbing out a conspiracy theory with only the loosest ties to the factual world....

    That great political genius Chris Cillizza of CNN has made a prediction that appears to spell doom for Republicans in the 2018 congressional elections. Okay, perhaps Cillizza did hilariously flop on his prediction of Donald Trump having near zero chance winning the presidency but this time he is armed with polls. Lots of polls to back up his contention that Here's why Republicans are in deep trouble in 2018:

    There's something about Donald Trump that really causes CNN's Chris Cillizza to lunge into foolishness. What makes his latest act of foolishness so funny is that it is his own CNN that is making a fool out of him. On September 5 Cillizza boldly claimed that Donald Trump just flat-out lied about Trump Tower wiretapping. Well, fast forward just 13 very unlucky days forward and on September 18 CNN broke the big story that US government wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman.

Led by co-host Chris Cuomo, panelists David Gregory, Chris Cillizza, and John Avlon took turns whacking the Trump piñata. [snip] Lowlights: “The White House’s apparent inability to tell the truth.” “I heard one of the conservatives say, it’s not just about the base. It’s about the fact that the president is being base.” “It’s about damn time” for a Republican backlash against Trump. “They don’t deserve the benefit of the doubt.” “He looks like he’s got something to hide.” “It cannot be said enough, how...

Cillizza demanded that some specific cases of fake news and ended up getting owned by hundreds of conservatives. “Fake News is at an all time high. Where is their apology to me for all of the incorrect stories?” Trump tweeted. “Name a story that is ‘fake’ or ‘incorrect.’ You can’t just make a blanket assertion without ANY specifics,” Cillizza fired back. .. Within the next few hours, Cillizza, CNN, and the overall mainstream media got owned by...

    Could Donald Trump pull a Brexit, confounding elite opinion by winning the election with votes that the polls didn’t pick up? On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough and Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post agreed it could happen. Scarborough said that people are still whispering to him as they leave the room that they’re voting for Tump, but are embarrassed to tell pollsters given the coverage of his comments about women, etc. There are limits to the phenomenon: in Cillizza and Scarborough’s view, the hidden Trump vote is unlikely to exceed 1.5%. But if Trump can continue to tighten the...
