CNN has been at war with Donald Trump for the past four years.
But they continue to sell the narrative that they are “unbiased” news to their audience.
But two reporters just admitted that CNN targeted Donald Trump in this incredible confession.
Recently, The Atlantic published an article from reporter McKay Coppins that discussed how reporters will be approaching the Biden administration.
In the piece, two big name CNN reporters – Jim Acosta and Daniel Dale – made a stunning admission as they confessed that they put on fireworks for the Trump administration and put Trump under intense scrutiny on the network, but don’t intend to do the same for the Biden administration.
“I don’t think the press should be trying to whip up the Biden Presidency and turn it into must-see TV in a contrived way,” Acosta stated.
Acosta then lied and said this wasn’t him being partisan, but said it was “professional solidarity.”
“If that sounds like a double standard, Acosta told me it’s not partisan – it’s a matter of professional solidarity. In his view, Trump’s campaign to discredit the press has constituted a ‘nonstop national emergency,’ one that required a defiant response. ‘If being at the White House is not an experience that might merit hazard pay,’ he said, ‘then perhaps it is going to be approached differently,’” Coppins wrote.
It doesn’t stop there.
CNN’s very own “fact checker” Daniel Dale says he won’t be putting Biden under the same scrutiny in terms of checking his statements for lies.
He added that he wants to spend more time fact checking Congress instead of the Biden administration.
“Daniel Dale, the former Toronto Star correspondent who rose to stardom at CNN for his exhaustive cataloging of Trump’s lies, says his beat will necessarily expand come January. ‘It will not be a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week job to fact-check Biden,’ he told me. Though he stressed that the same ‘intensity and rigor’ should be applied to the incoming President, the simple reality is that Biden doesn’t lie nearly as often as Trump does. Consequently, Dale hopes to spend more time debunking online disinformation and digging into claims made by Congressional leaders,” Coppins reported.
Of course, no one expects Dale to be fact-checking the Democrat Congressional leaders like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
Almost certainly he will spend more time “fact-checking” Republican Members of Congress who he disagrees with.
And that’s how CNN operates.
Fully oppose anyone who doesn’t 100% fall in line with their narrative in American politics of radical leftism.
