CNN has made it their mission to attack Donald Trump and all Republicans.
Meanwhile, Democrat officials get treated with kid gloves.
But when CNN took on one GOP governor, it did not go well for the network.
Investigative journalists with Project Veritas recently uncovered just how biased CNN has become.
President Jeff Zucker and several of his journalists openly expressed anti-Trump sentiments.
But when one CNN reporter tried to boost her profile by attacking Florida governor Ron DeSantis, things went quickly awry.
Reporter Rosa Flores had tried to challenge DeSantis on the long lines for COVID-19 vaccines in his state, but DeSantis shut her down.

DeSantis has been assailed by the press mercilessly even though he’s handled the coronavirus better than most states, especially considering Florida has a large elderly population.
He made the decision to protect elderly people in nursing homes and long-term healthcare facilities while New York governor Andrew Cuomo did the opposite and forced COVID patients back into the facilities.
And yet Cuomo was lauded as a hero by the so-called mainstream media despite New York having one of the worst COVID death rates in the world.
Cuomo refused to release the number of patients that died in nursing homes, and shockingly won an Emmy for his television addresses.
As DeSantis mentioned in his smackdown of Flores, long lines for vaccines were caused by hospitals implementing their own procedures for distributing the vaccine.
Leftists believe that everything should be centrally controlled.
Someone in the governor’s office isn’t going to have the knowledge or expertise in distributing a vaccine like a hospital would.
But DeSantis also showed that, as a reporter, Flores should’ve done some legwork first to find out why there were long lines. Instead, she tried to ambush DeSantis with a “gotcha” question.
Democrats have to be worried about DeSantis running for president down the road because they’re already peppering him with hit pieces.
DeSantis has good approval numbers in his home state and he successfully cleaned up the election process in 2020 after a disastrous 2018 when Democrats pulled shenanigans in Broward County in an attempt to get Andrew Gillum elected.
Comparable states like New York and California have not handled COVID-19 nearly as well as DeSantis. In fact, California governor Gavin Newsom violated his own lockdown restrictions, although didn’t face nearly any media scrutiny.
The media game is rigged for the Democrats and the disproportionate negative coverage of DeSantis proves that.
