CNN Becomes Only Network Not to Air Barrett Hearings Live After They Cut Away

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.

Who is the owner of CNN and wasn’t he a friend of Epstein? No wonder he doesn’t want Trump for another 4 years. Something to hide???????

Warner Media, a subsidiary of AT&T owns CNN. Good luck trying to pin anyone down. Ted Turner started CNN in 1978 and it went live in 1980. He was married to Jane Fonda for almost a decade (’91-’01) during his affiliation with CNN. He sold his company to Time Warner in 1996 and ceased affiliation in 2003. Today, he’s an unmarried, 81-year-old billionaire suffering with Lewy body dementia.

CNN is a total travesty of a ‘SO CALLED’ news network. The FCC should pull their ‘LICENSE’ to broadcast as a ‘NEWS NETWORK’ !! They are NOT JOURNALIST, NOTHING FAIR OR BALANCED ABOUT THEM. Just ‘OPINIONATED COLUMNIST’ . !!!!

I think that since they are a cable network that they don’t need an FCC license. I may be incorrect on that but I think that is how it works. Only “over the air” networks/stations need a license.

I wonder if any of these (never Trumpers) have the guts to actually tell the public the truth as to why they hate him so much? I have been around for many decades and I cannot recall any person who has become the President being openly hated as much in all the news outlets as President Trump. Even Nixon was not reviled as much as Trump has been. It must have something to do with wanting to drain the swamp and the exposure of the creatures that live there.

Robert, you are spot on! A lot of corruption has come to the forefront in the past 4 years. Trump has thrown back the curtain and now most people, instead of just a small majority of those who do their homework see what has been going on for decades! Both parties are guilty. The democrats and Rino’s especially under Obama don’t want their back room deals to end. Trump is not a politician and does not care about a political career, he also does not care about making money from all the corrupt kickbacks these politicians have gotten. And it’s worse than just kickbacks! All the tricks they have tried to get rid of him takes an enormous amount of time and money and no one would fight that hard to take down a President just because they don’t like him or his style…it’s much much bigger and deeper than that, but so easy to see….just follow the money! I pray for President Trump’s safety every night.

Since CNN is nothing more than a democrat lapdog, and since the democrats on the committee were accomplishing nothing but embarrassing themselves, of course they cut away. Aren’t they paying attention to what is probably going to happen to Twitter and Facebook (lose their Section 230 protection because of their actions) and that the same could happen to CNN? Have they learned nothing from losing the Nick Sandmann case? CNN is excellent at providing hate. They are terrible at providing anything credible and are a waste of time and space.

Calling CNN a news network is like calling a turd a Tootsie Roll. It may look like a Tootsie Roll but it doesn’t taste like a Tootsie Roll.

The less said of this discredited sorry excuse for journalism the better. Just ignore them since they need the exposure. U.S.—CNN’s ratings have somehow tanked even worse than they previously had as Americans began to quarantine themselves and stopped taking commercial flights, emptying American airports and robbing the cable channel of its captive audience. CNN’s audience shriveled in the second quarter of 2019, averaging only 541,000 total viewers, less than half Fox News Channel’s 1.3 million average. But CNN struggled even more during the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m. ET, finishing as the fifteenth most-watched network on basic cable behind networks such as TLC, Investigation Discovery and the Hallmark Channel. CNN averaged a dismal 761,000 primetime viewers while FNC averaged 2.4 million. At first, the shtick was successful. Ratings hit an all-time high on March 30, with 862,000 daily viewers in the 25-54 age demographic. But since then, according to the Daily Mail, the ratings for Cuomo Prime Time have tanked, plummeting by 50 percent since Chris recovered from COVID.

After the election Trump will deal with the tech and media monopolies in order to prepare for the coming world war and 2nd American Civil War.

Looks like the President is right about CNN, they do like to turn off the red light.
