    #CNNRealityCheck: Trump said ”murders are up" in NYC. FALSE. They're down 4.3% from this time last year, per NYPD— CNN (@CNN) September 27, 2016 New York murders in 2014: 328. New York murders in 2015: 352. So Trump wins that fact check, too.— Mollie (@MZHemingway) September 27, 2016 Clinton is wrong about murders in NYC dropping.

  • CNN Panel: Clinton Knows Her Opponent Better than They Know Themselves

    The Sunday before the first presidential debate of 2016 was filled with analysis and speculation about how the candidates were going to perform. It was the same on CNN’s Inside Politics were their panel touted Hillary Clinton’s ability to debate.  Host John King played a clip of Clinton leaving Senator Bernie Sanders speechless after slamming his questions about her speaking fees as a smear, saying it was a clue about how Monday’s debate might turn out. CNN’s Nia-Malika Henderson seemed almost in awe of Clinton’s counter of Sanders, noting his lack of a response wasn’t good for him. “One of...

    There have been two recent instances when major television networks edited out comments made by Bill and Hillary Clinton, respectively, that would harm her chances to win the presidency. Clearly that is precisely why the Pravda-like monitors in the media hit the delete buttons. Bill Clinton said the Hillary Clinton faints frequently. CBS excised that comment completely and the edited version showed Bill Clinton saying she fainted rarely (no doubt because she chooses to power through her various maladies that seems to be the company line all her flacks are using in the media. The second recent editing job occurred...

    At this point in the race, as his poll numbers are surging and Hillary Clinton is dealing with the negative fallout over her health scare and continual lying; only the media can stop Donald Trump from being elected the next President of the United States. The media will have multiple opportunities in upcoming debates, featuring mostly liberal moderators. In fact, in an interview this week with the Washington Post, Trump questioned the impartiality of CNNs Anderson Cooper. According to Trump, Anderson is very biased, very biased. I dont think he should be a moderator. Trump also said that Cooper cannot...

    Donald Trump just used one of his classic surprise attacks the media, and it has CNN furious. During what was supposed to be a press conference dedicated to Barack Obama and his place of birth, Trump instead used the platform to demonstrate to the world the toughness and vision of America's future. Numerous generals and admirals took the stage with Trump, along with two Medal of Honor recipients who pledged their support to Trump and remonstrated Barack Obama. One of my personal favorite American heroes, Mike Thornton, said that "we cannot stand four more years of leadership like (Barack Obama's),...

    The CNN screen graphic at 6 p.m. on Sept. 12 was blunt: "PENCE REFUSED TO CALL DAVID DUKE 'DEPLORABLE.'" Donald Trump running mate Mike Pence had granted Wolf Blitzer a 30-minute interview, and what he received in return was a reckless leftist smear. Let's be clear about this interview. Blitzer offered 39 hostile questions or interjections about Trump's tax returns, medical records and charities, and made offensive remarks before asking a single question about policy. In the middle of this contentious exchange, Blitzer arrived at Hillary Clinton's recent gaffe of calling Trump backers a "basket of deplorables." Blitzer obnoxiously underlined...

It's implicitly rooted in the fact that if the Democrats could just be forced to lose 10% of African-American vote, that it would seriously damage the Democrats' presidential aspirations. They routinely get 90 to 93% of the African-American vote, and it's assumed that there's nothing to be done. But yet there are often calls, and have been for decades, for Republicans to make...

    (CNN)-Donald Trump is postponing a major immigration speech he was set to deliver Thursday in Colorado as his campaign continues to fine-tune his immigration policy. The decision came after Trump, whose hardline immigration policies appealed to many GOP primary voters, met Saturday with his Hispanic advisory council and said in an interview Monday morning that he wants to "come up with a really fair, but firm" immigration policy. Trump denied in an interview Monday morning on Fox News that he was "flip-flopping" on the issue of illegal immigration. A Trump campaign source said the campaign decided to push back Trump's...

    CNN is pushing back on claims that one of its lead news anchors was seen celebrating Hillary Clinton's historic nomination for president Thursday night, calling the accusation "absurd." A video circulating online shows anchor Wolf Blitzer dancing to Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" while drinking from a glass and waving his hands in the air, apparently at the network's CNN Grill in Philadelphia. "CNN celebrates Hillary: Blitzer toasts speech, dancing, party!" reads a headline at the conservative Drudge Report, linking to the video.

It has been partisan. It's great opportunity for her. Bernstein also praised Clintons debate performance as her greatest moment in this campaign which has been a disaster for her up until the debate but ultimately admitted I don't think that a reset button was successfully hit. We're still back to these basic questions about her truthfulness about the server, the foundation, about the FBI investigation.

Well, she might as well take it because Cooper's fan base is doing just that already. Cooper's ratings have been in a sharp decline all year, and so far the month of May is no exception. According to Nielsen, the audience for the 10-11 p.m. hour of his show so far this month is 933,000 viewers. This is the first time he's fallen below the one-million mark since the dog days of last August. Anderson is losing...

    CNN has fired producer Chez Pazienza after the network brass realized he had been blogging at his own left-wing site and several others over a period of years: In a phone interview this morning, Mr. Pazienza, 38, said he joined CNN as a senior producer in January 2004 and has consistently received positive performance evaluations of his work. He spent his first year at CNN at the networks headquarters in Atlanta, then moved to New York to work on CNN Daybreak, which has since been canceled, then American Morning, which is shown Monday through Friday, from 6 to 9 a.m....

    (CNN) Republican Fred Thompson has long faced criticism he lacks motivation to be President of the United States, but the Tennessee Republican's latest comments Saturday are likely to spawn fresh heat. Im not particularly interested in running for president," the former senator said at a campaign event in Burlington when challenged by a voter over his desire to be commander-in-chief. But I think Id make a good president," Thompson continued. "I have the background, capability, and concern to do this and Im doing it for the right reasons. Thompson took heat for not jumping into the White House race...

    CNN had an opportunity to shine as co-host of last week’s Republican presidential debate. Instead, the network faltered with millions watching, leaving conservatives with yet another example of bias at the highest level of the media establishment. It was a sad case of liberal elites stereotyping conservatives as gun-toting, Bible-thumping, gay-bashing bigots. As a supporter of the YouTube debate, I had high hopes for CNN in its role of selecting questions. The network had nearly 5,000 to choose from -- plenty to get a good representation of a variety of issues. Instead, we heard three questions about guns, a question...

    It was the Republican presidential candidates' turn to take questions from the great unwashed, and they didn't seem to have as much fun as the Democrats did. And it's not just because there was no talking snowman or Jackie Broyles and Dunlap. --snip-- Marc Ambinder (3) graded the candidates, and he proved to be pretty generous. "McCain's mix of resigned sighs, sober mien and sense of humor went over well with a crowd that seemed predisposed to be wary of him. ... Giuliani had a an 'eh' to 'poor' night. He seemed deflated.

    Saturday, November 17, 2007 CNN's six "undecided voters" were all Democratic operatives UPDATES BELOW - CNN hits bottom and digs: All six debate questioners appear to be Democratic Party operatives. So much for "ordinary people, undecided voters". To paraphrase Junior Soprano, CNN is so far up the DNC's hind end, Howard Dean can taste hair gel. In a nutshell, CNN's six "undecided voters" were: A Democratic Party bigwigAn antiwar activistA Union officialAn Islamic leaderA Harry Reid stafferA radical Chicano separatist Wow. This looks "rather" like a scandal. Hot Air: ...Youd think the networks audience might want to know who...
