CNN’s coverage of the Wuhan virus has been truly terrible.
The network has attempted to shift all blame for the pandemic onto Donald Trump.
But Mike Pence recently made one move that had CNN furious.
CNN and other Democrat-run news networks have been working overtime to blame Trump for the Wuhan coronavirus.
In addition, they’ve arrogantly discussed not running Donald Trump’s press briefings.
CNN’s Don Lemon, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, and others have said Trump’s briefings shouldn’t be covered live.
One of the reasons why is because Trump’s briefings are a ratings bonanza and they’ve inspired an uptick in his favorability ratings.
In order to combat it, the corporate press has decided to curate snippets of Trump’s briefings with misleading and dishonest commentary.
In response, Vice President Mike Pence said he wouldn’t allow health officials to appear on the network unless they began to air Trump’s briefings in full.
This sent CNN into a furor because their standards of journalism had been questioned, but not for the first time.
The New York Times barred its reporters from appearing on Don Lemon’s show because they didn’t want to be accused of blatant media bias.
Pence ultimately allowed Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), to appear on CNN – but only after making them sweat a little bit.
It needs to be made clear that the goal of the corporate press isn’t to inform the public but to shill for establishment Democrats.
Take Joe Biden, who hasn’t been asked a challenging question in months. Instead, he’s given softball interviews to attack Trump and the Republicans.
Biden recently chastised Trump for not enacting the travel ban with China sooner, but not a single so-called mainstream media outlet challenged him for calling the ban “xenophobic” at the time.
The Democrats and their media allies have abandoned all principles.
Their only principle is to be on the opposite side of whatever Trump says or does, even if they have to shamelessly reverse themselves.
And there won’t be any acknowledgement or accountability for the blatant flip-flops.
CNN anchor Chris Cuomo blasted Trump for saying he was a cheerleader for America and wanting to give optimism to the country.
But no one believes Cuomo would’ve ever said such a thing about Franklin Roosevelt’s inaugural address during the throes of the Great Depression when he said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
But “Orange Man Bad,” so Trump can literally do no right in the eyes of the corporate press.
This is why they’re so dangerous; they’re a propaganda machine masquerading as a legitimate news source.
