  • Bill Nye Called Out CNN for Giving Climate Change Denial A Platform on Earth Day

    Bill Nye was invited to speak on CNN’s New Day Saturday program for Earth Day, along with May Boeve, the executive director of green action group 350.org; and William Happer, a climate change skeptic and physicist at Princeton. Nye was clearly exasperated with Happer’s claims, and annoyed that CNN had invited him. To enthusiastic nods from Boeve, Nye said, “I will say, much as I love the CNN, you’re doing a disservice by having one climate change skeptic and not 97 or 98 scientists or engineers concerned about climate change.” (CNN is hardly the first media organization to give these...
  • Why Fox News to become more like CNN

    With the emergence of Rupert Murdoch’s politically progressive son, James, in the leadership of his media empire and the unceremonious exits from Fox News of CEO Roger Ailes and now flagship anchor Bill O’Reilly, the cable-news powerhouse’s niche as an alternative to the left-leaning CNN, MSNBC and broadcast networks is suddenly in question.

    CNN ^ | 04/23/2017
    As Fox News continues to reel from the summary dismissal of its top star Bill O'Reilly this week and its creator, Roger Ailes earlier this year, a lot of attention has been given to women who worked there and whether they experienced any sort of harassment. There was a very interesting exchange between Jake Tapper and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin during his interview with her on The Lead Thursday. Tapper asked, directly, what she experienced during her time working there as a commentator. Palin, who left the network in June of 2015, didn't elaborate about her personal experiences, but...

    The New York Times spread a pair of misleading photos of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots visiting the Trump and Obama White Houses, giving the false impression that significantly fewer Patriots players and staffers showed up for President Trump. The tweet quickly went viral, picking up over 44,000 retweets.

The 2015 photo included about 40 staff members, who were...
  • Kirsten Powers accused Bill O’Reilly of sexism Wednesday, but in 2014 she sang a different tune

    Political pundit Kirsten Powers appeared on CNN late Wednesday to discuss Bill O’Reilly’s departure from the Fox News network amid sexual harassment claims levied against him. Powers told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that she had her own personal experience with O’Reilly, in which O’Reilly made remarks that many would have considered to be overtly sexist. “I was thinking about an incident that had happened early on in my career there where I was on-air there with Margaret Hoover, who’s at CNN now, on a regular segment, we were on every Monday,” Powers said. “And he got Margaret’s name wrong, and Margaret...

    The murders of three white men by a black supremacist gunman in Fresno received limited media attention on Tuesday, most notably at CNN. CNN’s dearth of coverage of the shootings, carried out by 39-year-old Kori Ali Muhammad, an African-American Muslim, stands in stark contrast to its reporting of other non-political news events: the manhunt for a Cleveland man who killed a 74-year-old man on Sunday, a sexual harassment scandal involving Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, and a child custody battle involving radio host Alex Jones. A review of CNN’s broadcast through primetime shows that the Fresno killings received no mentions...

    Atlanta, Georgia (CNN)Republicans were served another reminder of President Donald Trump's unpopularity Tuesday as Democrat Jon Ossoff nearly captured a House seat in a region that for decades has been a conservative stronghold, with the Democrat ultimately falling just short of the percent needed to avoid a runoff. CNN projects that Ossoff will miss the 50% he needed to win outright. He and the other top vote-getter -- Republican candidate Karen Handel -- will now face off on their own in June.

    I check CNN's front page every now and then just to see what they're covering, or if they are covering anything important other than bashing Trump 24/7. The headline "Trump gets a taste for pulling the trigger" caught my eye. I was weakened by temptation due to the childish nature of the headline and decided to scan the article. Then I saw phrases/words like this: "In just the last week, the rookie commander in chief has presided over the use of some of the most powerful weaponry in the US arsenal" "he is one President who relishes ordering the use...

    Donald Trump set the media into a frenzy on March 4 when he Tweeted in the morning that Obama had "wiretapped him."  The Tweets read as follows: Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism! Is it legal for a sitting President to be "wire tapping" a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW! How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy! This...

    After a review of the same intelligence reports brought to light by House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, both Republican and Democratic lawmakers and aides have so far found no evidence that Obama administration officials did anything unusual or illegal, multiple sources in both parties tell CNN. . .One congressional intelligence source described the requests made by Rice as "normal and appropriate" for officials who serve in that role to the president. And another source said there's "absolutely" no smoking gun in the reports, urging the White House to declassify them to make clear there was nothing alarming in the documents.Still,...
  • Snarky CNN Segment Skewers Trump’s Travel Costs

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    The question of how much taxpayer money is being spent on President Trump’s travel to Mar a Lago is worthy of inquiry. But CNN’s approach to the subject this morning was a virtual parody of snarky, partisan snideness. Alisyn Camerota trumpeted the fact that President Trump is on a pace to outspend in one year President Obama’s travel costs for eight years. But is that so? This AP fact check suggests she might be overstating the cost of presidential trips to Mar a Lago by a factor of three. Moreover, Camerota and guests depicted the Mar a Lago trips as...

    Washington, D.C. - At the President and the Press event at the Newseum Wednesday, five members of the White House press corps weighed in on their experience covering the first three months of the Trump presidency. The audience was especially interested in what CNN’s Jim Acosta had to say, considering he has had some rather colorful exchanges with the president in his entertaining press conferences. Acosta, you’ll remember, was the reporter on the receiving end of Trump’s “fake news” retort back in January after his network reported on the unverified Russian dossier published by BuzzFeed. Acosta, however, has no regrets...

    A set up by CNN to try and push the anti-Trump narrative experienced a major detour today when a survivor of a gas attack in 2013 didn’t follow the line of propaganda that CNN was pushing. CNN pundit Brooke Baldwin had interviewed this victim of the 2013 attack just 3 days ago. This survivor spoke of the attacks on innocents setting up the liberal humanitarian perspective. Fast forward to today when we have the aftermath of last night’s airstrike, Ms. Baldwin brought Kassem Eid back to frame a narrative about President Trump launching an airstrike in Syria, but being unwilling...

    Talk about making lemons out of lemonade. On CNN today Josh Rogin tried his best to paint President Trump’s decision to order strikes against Syria in the worst possible light. The CNN analyst made the claim that by ordering the strikes, Trump “burned all his supporters in spectacular fashion.” It’s true that some prominent supporters, notably Ann Coulter, are displeased. But “all” Trump’s supporters? Or even most of them? Surely, a significant majority of people who support Trump support the strikes. View the video here.

    It was the interview that went horribly off the rails for CNN's Brooke Baldwin on the April 7 edition of Newsroom. Her guest via Skype from Syria was a 2013 chemical attack survivor, Kassem Eid, who two days earlier pleaded for help from President Donald Trump on her show. He returned yesterday which is when he went way off the CNN message by not only heaping effusive praise upon Trump for his missile attack response but also strongly rejecting the premise inserted by Baldwin in a prepared Hillary Clinton clip that the president was hypocritical because of his refugee policy.
