There’s an old saw that tells us one reaps what one sows, and it seems some CNN anchors are learning this the hard way — and they don’t like it. After providing some of the most biased “journalism” ever seen in a presidential election, some anchors gathered to whine about the fact that a number of Trump supporters don’t like them.
Tuesday morning’s CNN New Day ended the first hour of the show criticizing Donald Trump for attacking the media, which isn’t unusual but then the conversation quickly turned into what some may call an overreaction.
CNN began by playing a clip of a Donald Trump rally yesterday where the crowd began chanting, “CNN sucks” repeatedly. The CNN panel didn’t like that one bit and blamed Trump for not telling the crowd to quit it. Hosts Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota, along with guests Brian Stelter and Bill Carter suggested that Trump was endangering reporters’ lives, painting a nightmare scenario of Trump supporters violently attacking reporters. “I’m telling you, something is going to happen. Something is going to happen,” Cuomo solemnly warned.
After playing the short video clip, Cuomo, Camerota, Carter and Stelter wonder aloud what sinister outcome could arise from this display. Cuomo began by calling it “very high on the list of irresponsible things the guy has done,” blasting Trump for not thinking “about the implications to anybody other than himself.” Cuomo whined, “Have you ever heard of anybody in politics, let alone a presidential nominee, doing anything like this to the fourth estate?”
Maybe a better question should be: Have we ever seen the fourth estate go so far out of its way to elect a candidate? After all, CNN isn’t known as the “Clinton News Network” for nothing.
Stelter agreed this was “much, much worse than what we’ve seen in the past,” while Bill Carter added that there was “a mob mentality now at stake.” “These people are yelling and shouting and threatening reporters in a way I’ve never seen,” he stated.
Alisyn Camerota remarked that at rallies crowd members would “yell at” reporters and make “vulgar gestures at them.”
“[A]nd Trump encourages it,” Stelter began to say. “He needs to help bring the temperature down. Instead, he keeps raising the temperature by lying to them,” he added.
