Hours after CNN sanctimoniously declared itself the "facts first" network, host Don Lemon broke down during a live broadcast while reading a letter he wrote to President Trump.
Lemon's own brilliant writing brought him to tears. Yes, really.
You just can't make this stuff up...
There's a reason CNN consistently has lower ratings than both Fox News and MSNBC. While the network prides itself on being "factual," there is an obvious anti-Trump bias. According to a Harvard study, during Trump's first 100 days as president 93 percent of CNN's coverage of him was negative. That's compared with just 41 percent negative coverage during Barack Obama's first 100 days as president.
For CNN to pretend that it's neutral is laughable. The fact that 93 percent of its Trump coverage was negative during his first 100 days in office shows that the bias extends far beyond the network's primetime pundits. Opinion seeped its way into "hard news" coverage, too.
After a while, the negative coverage is no longer effective. If CNN and other left-leaning outlets don't give Trump credit when his actions warrant it, their negative coverage will become increasingly predictable and irrelevant.
Lemon and his colleagues are playing to the far left wing at this point -- and that's not how you change minds or influence politics.
