CNN's 'New Day' Spends 3x More on Corrupt Cop Than Murdered Cop

November 18th, 2017 1:01 PM
Since word broke early Thursday morning that a black police officer in Baltimore was shot in the head and then died, CNN has conspicuously buried the story, in contrast with the liberal news network's history of giving attention to black suspects who are killed or roughed up by police officers. CNN's most prominent morning show, New Day, which runs between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. ET, has only run…

FLASHBACK: CNN Didn’t See GOP Winning in 2009 As Referendum on Obama

November 8th, 2017 3:47 PM
As journalists rejoice over Republican defeats in New Jersey and Virginia, hyping them as a referendum on President Trump, we at the MRC dove into our archives to remind them that just 8 years ago they said the exact opposite when the exact same situation happened to President Obama. The comparison couldn’t get more apples-to-apples: in both 2009 and 2017, the governorships of Virginia and New…

September 30th, 2016 8:18 PM
After giving a substantial amount of attention to the case of Keith Lamont Scott being shot and killed by Charlotte police, with his wife disputing police accounts that he was holding a gun when he was shot, CNN this week has barely touched the important revelations that Scott not only was a convicted felon who had a history of gun violence, but that his wife even filed a protective order last…

December 3rd, 2015 1:03 PM
Three CNN programs on Wednesday night and Thursday morning promoted the anti-prayer front page of the New York Daily News: "God Isn't Fixing This."

Two CNN anchors channeled the supporters of Michael Brown's family on Tuesday's Early Start, as they played up how St. Louis County, Missouri Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch presented the Brown case to a grand jury, instead of pursuing charges himself.

CNN Glosses Over ObamaCare Failings Amidst Debt Ceiling Coverage

October 16th, 2013 4:33 PM
Lost in the midst of CNN's debt ceiling coverage was its own list of ObamaCare's shortcomings. Investigative correspondent Drew Griffin authored a report on "ObamaCare woes" that aired only three times on Monday and Tuesday. Griffin reported trouble with ObamaCare's website, cited a March GAO report on missed deadlines for the system's construction, and quoted a consultant who said that…

CNN All But Ignores Big New Report on IRS Scandal

September 19th, 2013 3:54 PM
CNN has all but ignored a new report that according to IRS documents, the agency gave extra scrutiny to 162 political groups – 80 percent of them conservative – that were seeking tax-exempt status. A USA Today report stated that the IRS "flagged" groups based on "'anti-Obama rhetoric', inflammatory language and 'emotional' statements." CNN briefly mentioned the bombshell report once, on…

September 12th, 2013 12:26 PM
On the one-year anniversary of the Benghazi attacks, only three CNN shows bothered to hold the Obama administration accountable for not having made any arrests of suspects.

CNN Gives Obama a Pass Amidst Major Coverage of His Leno Interview

August 8th, 2013 1:17 PM
CNN had extensive coverage on Wednesday of President Obama's interview with NBC's Jay Leno, but only two CNN hosts actually challenged some of the President's claims during the 11 different news hours that played clips of the interview.

CNN Drops Its Own Scoop on Benghazi; Networks Fail to Even Pick It Up

August 1st, 2013 2:44 PM
[UPDATED BELOW] CNN's Arwa Damon scored an exclusive interview with a suspect in the Benghazi attacks, yet CNN chose to air it only once.

Double Standard: CNN Airs GOP Dirty Laundry But Cleans Up After Democr

July 16th, 2013 5:57 PM
CNN's Early Start should have been re-named "DNC TV" on Tuesday. Anchors omitted almost every controversial detail about Democrats, showing no such love for Republicans. While CNN reported charges against a former staffer for Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), the network spun scandals into positives for New York Democrats Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer with the headline "Scandals Help, Not…
