(Liberty Bell) – CNN is a news organization — supposedly — that has become notorious for being ridiculously biased toward radical liberalism in their news coverage. This is a proven fact, despite how much the network tries to deny it. We’ve seen it time and time again in the way they have attacked President Trump over the last several years.
These people will do anything to push the narrative of the Democratic Party down on the consumers of their news product. And I do mean anything. There’s no low they won’t stoop to in trying to justify the insane actions of progressives who are hellbent on tearing down our country.
A good case in point is the whole “fiery, but mostly peaceful” chyron that ran across the screen as a CNN reporter on the scene of a public riot did a live report with burning buildings in the background and chaos abounding.
Host Brian Stelter recently tried to justify what happened with that chyron by stating it was done by a young producer trying his best.
Beth wrote about how one caller screamed at Stelter, and rightfully so, for being part of the network of liberal news outlets who tried to destroy Nick Sandmann. CNN settled the defamation lawsuit filed against them by Sandmann after it was exposed that he didn’t provoke the 2019 Lincoln Memorial incident with Native American activist Nathan Phillips. It occurred during the annual March for Life event in Washington D.C. Sandmann wore a “Make America Great Again” hat, he was white, and he attended a pro-life rally—all things that trigger the Left. So, he had to be destroyed, right. Well, Sandmann is now drinking from the skulls of his enemies.
Yet, about 20 minutes into the program, one caller ripped into CNN for the absurd chyrons—the banners they use during their coverage—and called Stelter “humpy dumpty.” That’s when the C-Span host cut off the caller and allowed Stelter to respond. This was a reference to CNN’s coverage of the ongoing Kenosha riots in which the banner read, “FIERY BUT MOSTLY PEACEFUL PROTESTS AFTER POLICE SHOOTING.”

You simply cannot make this up. Anyways, here’s how Stelter replied (via CSPAN).
[BRIAN STELTER]: I really appreciate the caller’s point about the chyrons. These are the graphics on the bottom of the screen. They are known as chyrons or banners. Different TV shows handle these differently. For example, on my program, Reliable Sources, I view every banner before we go on the air and I edit them, and I make changes to them. So, I am 100 percent responsible if you don’t like the banner on my show. It’s my fault. But different shows handle these differently. And I think that CNN banner that the caller mentioned that said that there were ‘fiery but mostly peaceful protests.’ That banner was probably a mistake. I don’t know who wrote it. Probably a young producer who’s trying their best under deadline and a breaking news situation. But I think it’s probably that that kind of thing becomes easily criticized and probably not the right banner to put on screen. What I would suggest to our caller is view CNN for a day. Don’t view it for 10 seconds. Don’t pick on the worst mistake made during the day because I know I make mistakes on the air. Everybody makes mistakes. Instead, try to view it in totality. Try to view it in context. By the way, I try to do that for Fox News as well. I think it’s unfair to cherry-pick the most foolish moments or the most outlandish moments on a television network. Instead, try to look at the totality of it, but know that when mistakes happen, there are consequences. There is accountability. In fact, I had a tough conversation with one of my bosses last week because I made a mistake in my nightly newsletter, and I’m better off for having that conversation. I think what we need more of in journalism are those checks and balances and those standards and practices so that when I do slip up, someone notices and we talk about it and I make sure it doesn’t happen again.”
This particular news network is absolutely insane if they really think that average Americans, all of whom have more than one fully functioning brain cell — unlike the hosts and anchors who work for this company — really buy into this whole story Stelter spewed about the young producer and all that other junk.
We know that deep down they are puppets for the Democratic Party. These folks are supported by big movers and shakers in the progressive movement like George Soros and will do their best to stay on mission and push the agenda and narrative they are told to push, even if they have to look silly to do so.
And boy did that chyron ever make them look like fools. There’s no such thing as a “fiery, but mostly peaceful protest” when folks are looting, rioting, and burning neighborhoods to ash. That is pretty much the exact opposite of the term “peaceful.”
And yet, they still think we are dumb enough to buy their excuses. We can see clearly through the bias. This sort of reporting is contributing to the mass exodus of voters from the Democratic Party. By sticking to the plan, the left is actually driving more folks to Trump and securing his victory. It’s unbelievable that they can’t see that happening.
