Skip to comments.Former CNN pundit: Network is officially 'Leftist State Media' after Trump chyron coverage

CNNs coverage of Mondays White House coronavirus press briefing put a harsh spotlight on the network's line-blurring between journalism and agenda-driven opinion, media experts tell Fox News, and even has some wondering if the liberal network has abandoned objective coverage of the president altogether.
CNN cut away from Trumps task force briefing on Monday when the White House aired a brief video designed to combat recent reports that the response to coronavirus didnt happen quickly enough. CNN host John King quickly called it propaganda, which became the phrase du jour for the network during a series of events that one former network employee said proved it has officially become Leftist State Media.
Once CNN decided to return to the briefing, the networks on-screen chyrons began editorializing with snarky comments that were praised by the far left but frowned upon by journalism professors, conservative media watchdogs and ex-CNN employees.

Tell you what, the rats control the FNC chyron. Turn the sound off and you cannot tell the difference between them and CNN.
I saw a picture of those churns and thought “who is letting a juvenile type these”?
Nothin’ new ‘bout that! Been that way for a long, long time. Only difference is one of them came out and said it.
The pundit to whom the article refers is Jeffery Lord.
For the record...
Some? Wondering? Pffffffftt.
While I agree that Fox (outside of the primetime lineup and morning host) is not much different than most of the media, CNN and MSNBC are a special kind of stupid. The old school networks jump the shark often as well.
They are rabid propagandist.
I used to like watching Lynne Russell on CNN (Headline News channel).
The idiots at cnn have long ago lost their damn minds.
Four year later and CNN is still.sore about losing the 2016 election.
As the article shows, former cnn employee, Soledad O’Brien, also criticized cnn in a tweet.
Now that’s amazing... because she’s a far left idiot.
OMG! Those are real?!
That has to be a woke high school kid writing those. I can't believe they call themselves a news outlet.
It was those puffy, bright red lips, right?
LOL...I caught that on Tucker last night...very good!
Now that all the airports are empty, I wonder what CNN’s ratings are these days??
A local family who has been friends of my family for a many generations is counted among the CNN loyalists.
This family hates Trump and looks forward to feeding that hatred daily by watching CNN's hateful coverage. They actually believe that CNN is "just the news."
cnn jacka$$es have no shame and are not journalists they are biased paid propagandists..how can they sleep at night? no conscience...
“I used to like watching Lynne Russell...”
Yup, remember her in her early days at KENS in San Antonio.
I liked Robin Meade...
back when I paid for cable.
I use to catch 10 to 12 minutes of headline news, but those days are long over.
And how can cnn abandon what they never had?
