  • CNN Anchor Scolds Senators Who Weren't Staying in Their Chairs During Impeachment Trial

    CNN anchor John Berman had harsh words for senators who did not stay inside the Senate chamber as the House impeachment managers presented their case against President Trump on Wednesday. Berman especially called out Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY). "The presentation from the House managers is earning praise even from Republicans. We have a picture to show you, late last night, that’s Senator Lindsey Graham, one of the president’s fiercest defenders, telling lead manager Adam Schiff that he had done a good job. Really well-spoken, he said. Although it does beg the question, how would Senator...
  • CNN's Berman Upset that Rand Was Doing Crosswords During Trial...But Forgot Dem Watching Golf?

    CNN anchor John Berman lectured the U.S. senators who didn't stay in their seats for every minute of Wednesday's opening arguments in the impeachment trial against President Trump. While impeachment managers Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler presented their case against the president and how he supposedly tried to coerce Ukraine to boost his re-election chances, several lawmakers left their chairs. Berman found that unacceptable.  "In fact, many of the senators of both parties were not at their desk at different times despite the rules which will require the apparently herculean task of sitting down for a few hours," Berman said....

    Can CNN possibly be this naive—or is the Trump-hating network this cynically manipulative? On this morning's New Day, CNN seized on crowd size and man-in-the-street interviews in Tehran to claim that the killing of Qasem Soleimani has "united" Iran. Co-host John Berman teed up reporter Fred Pleitgen, on the ground in Tehran, with this leading question: "These demonstrations that you’re seeing . . . do they indicate that the US actions have actually worked to unify the Iranian people behind the government there?"Pleitgen was only too happy to oblige, repeatedly claiming that the killing of Soleimani has indeed "unified" Iran....
  • CNN's Berman Calls Killing of Soleimani 'Murder'

    Did CNN just accuse President Trump of "murder?" On this morning's New Day, co-host John Berman called the killing of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani "murder," before adding, "assassination." Given that the strike on Soleimani was reportedly ordered by President Trump, Berman's choice of language would seem tantamount to accusing President Trump of a capital crime. Here’s the exact quote. Talking about the last impeachment and Bill Clinton’s 1998 air strikes against Iraq, Berman said of last night’s attack: “Not to diminish the importance of the air strikes in Iraq at the time, but that’s nothing compared to the murder, the...

    ust imagine if this was said about a Democratic President, maybe Barack Obama or Bill Clinton: Talking to Congressman James Clyburn on Thursday, CNN New Day co-host John Berman had NO response when the Democrat said of a Senate impeachment trial for Donald Trump: “Let's give him a fair trial and hang him.” Here’s the context. Berman and Clyburn were discussing a possible delay in delivering the articles of impeachment. The Democrat called for the need to avoid a “kangaroo court” run by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: JOHN BERMAN: Why the delay, Congressman? CLYBURN: Well, the delay is made...
  • CNN Scolds Lockhart for Saying Democrats Might Be Seeking Impeachment Pause

    The CNN troops are all revved up and ready to go for impeachment: face paint on, warrior chants in the break room. The last thing CNN would want would be to demoralize the troops with talk of a possible pause in the inexorable march toward impeachment! And so it was that Joe Lockhart, who served as Bill Clinton's press secretary during his impeachment, got his knuckles rapped when, appearing on this morning's New Day, he suggested that the Democrats might be seeking a deal with the Trump White House for a pause in the impeachment proceedings. The deal would offer...

    New Day co-hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota on Thursday took turns reading out loud a letter that President Trump recently sent to Turkish President Recep Erdogan. The letter contained blunt language in which Trump urged Erdogan not to be a "tough guy" or a "fool." Berman then turned to Jim Acosta, CNN's White House correspondent, and Trump antagonist extraordinaire, and sneeringly said: "We have this letter with this language that isn't exactly at Ph.D. level."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    CNN's chyron on Friday, echoed by host John Berman, makes the liberal network's conclusion clear: the latest revelations about Ukraine are "damning" for President Trump. And when Alisyn Camerota interviewed CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin this morning, she was pushing the CNN party line, suggesting that President Trump's actions constituted criminal "bribery."But for whatever reason, Toobin declined to go with CNN's damning flow, repeatedly saying that he saw no "criminality" in Trump's actions. That said, Toobin did suggest that Trump had committed an impeachable abuse of power. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    I’ll give you three guesses and the first two don’t count. Wait… you still need a hint? It rhymes with “rump.” Yes, Virginia Senator (and failed Vice Presidential candidate) Tim Kaine sat down yesterday with CNN’s John Berman to talk about the recent attack on a major Saudi Arabian oil refinery. Given all of the finger-pointing that’s been going on, surely he would be able to shed some light on things and offer a bit of clarity, right? Of course. And he quickly did, pinning the blame on Donald Trump for creating an atmosphere of war by continually “provoking” Iran...

    VIDEO Just look at the joy on the faces on CNN hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota as they anticipate how a a tanking economy could bring defeat to President Trump in 2020. Camerota can be seen really struggling in her losing battle to suppress her smile as the joy leaps to her eyes. The rest of the panel are also in a very happy mood as they feel enveloped of the warmth of a possible economic decline harming Trump.

    VIDEO Notice how the CNN commentators such as Allisyn Camerota and John Berman today all seem to be fed the same laughable spin to recite about President Donald Trump's yuuuuge rally in Orlando, Florida. This "nothing new" spin comes after CNN's initial panic over the incredible enthusiasm of the crowd for Trump.

    VIDEO Poppy Harlow disgraced the profession of journalism by advocating strongly in favor of censorship on YouTube. Of course, she wants a ban on Stephen Crowder's channel and other channels that just so happen to be conservative leaning. You never hear her call for a ban on any leftwing videos, no matter how offensive they might be.

    Could it be CNN's evaporating audience that has one of its hosts taking one of its infinite swipes at the Fox News behemoth that has so badly thrashed CNN in the ratings? On Friday's New Day, co-host John Berman quipped that the Fox Business Network might be "on the payroll" of President Trump, and might have prepared an edited mashup of Nancy Pelosi stammering her way through remarks during her weekly press conference on Thursday. Here was Berman: "Fox Business, whether on the payroll of the President or not, I don't know, but they did that mashup which the President...

    James Clapper, in an interview with John Berman on CNN, was asked about the attorney general appointment of U.S. Attorney John Durham for the job to investigate how the “FBI Russia Investigation started”. “There is a substantial investigation, which as I understand it, is nearing completion, being conducted by the Justice Department Inspector General,” Clapper said. “I’d wait for the outcome of that to determine if there needs to be more investigations.”

    Once again, on this morning's New Day, co-host John Berman has offered up a steaming serving of anti-Trump liberalism. The subject was Lindsey Graham's suggestion on Fox News yesterday that Donald Trump Jr. needn't comply with a Senate Intelligence Committee subpoena to provide additional testimony. It's somehow scandalous to suggest there's no collusion, so why is this subpoena necessary? Berman suggested to John Avlon, a CNN analyst and former editor-in-chief of the lefty Daily Beast, that Graham has gone "from wingman to wingnut." Most telling was that Berman prefaced his quip by assuring Avlon, "you'll like this one." Berman was...
  • CNN Lets Dem Guest Misinform on New Gun Law Push

    On Friday's New Day show, CNN co-host John Berman allowed Georgia Democratic Congresswoman Lucy McBath to mislead viewers on a proposed new gun law being considered in Congress as she claimed it would require background checks when purchasing from "licensed" gun dealers. In reality, licensed gun dealers are already required to conduct background checks, and the purpose of the new law is to require private sellers who are unlicensed to also conduct such checks. Berman also brought up the issue of President Donald Trump declaring a national emergency to justify building more border security barriers than Congress will authorize as...

    It was all fun and games for Dems when Brett Kavanaugh was in the barrel. But now that allegations of sexual misconduct and racial insensitivity threaten to take down Virginia's Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General, and even—horror of horrors—elevate a Republican to the governorship, the Dem thrill is gone. CNN's New Day was surprisingly tough on the Dems this morning. Washington Post reporter Toluse Olorunnipa began by offering an unsparing assessment of the Dem predicament. Olorunnipa said that Democrats run "the risk of being seen as hypocrites" if they don't apply to Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax and Attorney General...
  • CNN's Berman Warns Ex-Trump Aide Is 'Hardly Impartial Reporter' Before Letting Him Speak

    When's the last time you remember a CNN host—before permitting a former Dem official to speak—telling such guest, and by extension the audience, "you are hardly an impartial reporter?" Like never, maybe? And CNN brings on a pile of former Obama and Clinton officials from Jim Clapper on down. (Oh, and psst, CNN hires former Obama officials as "impartial reporters." See Jim Sciutto.) But that's what happened to former Trump aide Marc Short when he appeared on this morning's New Day. Before permitting Short to report on his conversation with President Trump regarding the SOTU, co-host John Berman said: "Now...

    Here's what passes for humor in the age of CNN Trump-hatred: joking about whether President Trump meant to say that his hospital visit to victims of the Vegas massacre caused many deaths.[snip] JOHN BERMAN: He [Trump] tried to compare, or juxtapose, Laura [Jarrett], the Mueller investigation to the Las Vegas massacre investigation. Let me preface this by saying the one place I've seen that repeatedly is on Tucker Carlson on Fox News. Tucker has made that a big deal, saying "The FBI can't solve Las Vegas because it's spending too much time on Mueller." This is what the President said:...
