CNN got caught letting its bias get the better of them, again.
This time CNN cut away from the live Senate Judiciary hearing for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett becoming the only not airing the confirmation hearings.
They cut away to talk about New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
According to The Daily Wire:
Around 9:30a.m. Eastern, CNN stopped showing the live hearings taking place on Capitol Hill to talk about Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D-NY) targeting of Orthodox Jewish communities in New York (CNN framed it as Cuomo saying he is concerned about “hot spots” in the Hasidic community).
As noted in screenshots from Francis Brennan, director of strategic response for the Trump campaign, other outlets, including MSNBC, were airing the hearings live. Fox News, C-Span, MSNBC, Newsmax, and One America News Network were all airing the hearing while CNN covered Cuomo.
At the time of this writing MSNBC continues to air the hearings, though it interjects commentary when the Senate takes breaks, while CNN is suggesting Trump could be a “down-ballot drag” during the 2016 election. CNN’s coverage so far includes its reporters discussing the hearings without actually showing them. During the last break, CNN’s chyron read: “Democrats claim Barrett confirmation is a threat to Obamacare”
Jeff Greenfield, a Politico Magazine columnist and political analyst who has appeared on ABC, CNN, CBS, and PBS, questioned the network’s decision.
It appears CNN has made the decision that the hearings will help President Trump and have decided to push another narrative.
