Until this day, I did not know that CNN was trying to become another Comedy Central.
CNN anchor Don Lemon along with reporter Jim Acosta tried their best to explain to their audience that they did not hate Donald Trump and that they held both sides of the political aisle under the same scrutiny. I cannot believe they would even try to force this narrative after what Americans have been seeing over the past couple of years, but that is what they did.
During a conversation with CNN Reporter and WH antagonist Jim Acosta, Lemon said this:
Lemon: “Because of all the negativity coming from this administration, we forget what a great country we actually live in. I watched Manu Raju with Nancy Pelosi who clearly did not want to answer Manu’s questions today, even in her body language and you know what, he persisted, he asked her the tough questions,” said Lemon.
“If anyone, Democrat or Republican, if you hold a position of power, we the journalists at CNN are going to question you about it whether you like it or not,”
Acosta: “We’re here to hold their feet to the fire. Just because we’re pro-truth doesn’t mean we’re anti-Trump. We’re not here to spin things or color things a certain way, we’re here to give the people reliable, accurate information on a daily basis, that’s why we come into work every day.”
Here is the interview Lemon was speaking about that included CNN’s Raju with Rep. Nancy Pelosi:
Part of my Pelosi interview here from this morning, where she talks about how she's "done" with Trump, talks about an impeachment inquiry and doesn't deny she said she wants Trump in prison. And stops short of saying Trump committed crimes in office, but points to Mueller report pic.twitter.com/mlqWnqpzi7

I am not alone in giving people the benefit of the doubt, but when you see blatant hateful rhetoric from a network who supposed to pride themselves on being the number one place for news, then you have a huge problem.
CNN has lost more than half of his viewership especially in primetime, and they have not tried to gained them back by continuing their scandalous practices. They continue to attack Pres. Trump with negative news while sweeping the positive news under the carpet. Sometimes, fewer rather than more, they announce positive news for the Commander-in-chief, but then they’re right back to a huge bloc of negative news.
Did you get a good laugh out of that video? I know I did!
