  • CNN's John King Offers Drama on Memorial Day: Trump's 'Full of Hate,' the Bidens Are Great
    by Tim Graham on May 26, 2020 at 10:45 am

    CNN anchor John King demonstrated his network's dramatic double standard toward the current president and his Democratic opponent within a half hour on Memorial Day. President Trump has a Twitter feed "full of hate and spite," and Joe Biden properly wore a mask and has a "strong tie to military families."

  • Politico's 'Playbook' Compares Trump Memorial Day Tweets to Patriotic Newspapers
    by Tim Graham on May 26, 2020 at 1:00 am

    One favorite pastime of the national media is mocking President Trump's tweets as gauche and inappropriate. The people who make the Politico Playbook newsletter played this game on Memorial Day with the president, suggesting all of his tweets should have been respectful tributes to our war dead. Politico contrasted Trump tweeting about Obamagate and "Make America Great Again" with our apparently patriotic national newspapers. Let's call this bias by headline selection.

    It doesn’t seem that the media has learned anything after they completely mangled their predictions that red states like Florida and Georgia would see catastrophic consequences for opening up early. On MSNBC this afternoon, “conservative” analyst Rick Tyler was ready to make more hyperbolic predictions about red states getting “hit hard” by the coronavirus in coming months. Tyler even used the Memorial Day holiday to trash President Trump as a “debased” traitor to this country because he apparently hasn’t done anything to combat the coronavirus.

  • CNN Averaged 4 Minutes Per Day on Biden's Gaffe, Then Stopped Covering it
    by Bill D'Agostino on May 25, 2020 at 5:15 pm

    As Fox News noted on Friday, it took CNN 12 hours to cover Biden’s latest gaffe: asserting on a radio show Friday morning that if you aren’t a Biden supporter, “You ain’t black.” That disinterest continued into the weeked; after spending average of less than four minutes per day on the controversy, CNN stopped covering it entirely as of noon EST on Monday, May 25.
