CNN senior political analyst joined CNN Newsroom host Erica Hill on Wednesday to recap John Fetterman’s Tuesday debate performance.

Avlon: Pro-Lifers Are Using 'Muscle of Religion' To Be Anti-Freedom
CNN senior political analyst John Avlon wrapped up Wednesday’s New Day with one of his characteristically reality-free reality checks where he proclaimed that being pro-life is anti-freedom, anti-individualism, and just another way to push religion.

Saving Face? CNN Offers Shocking Mea Culpa Over BYU Race Hoax
CNN offered another clue Monday morning into how a properly-run CNN under Discovery and boss Chris Licht might look as New Day introduced a new segment called “Upon Further Review” to reexamine stories that, once facts emerged, showed something was different than the initial narrative.

Avlon Condemns 'Gnashing Of Teeth' After Biden Speech

Avlon Lauds Biden's Student Loan Order, Agrees It's Like Cutting Taxes
CNN senior political analyst John Avlon joined Thursday’s edition of New Day to declare that GOP opposition to President Biden’s student loan forgiveness order is unwarranted because it is “good economic policy” and the White House is correct to say that Republicans aren't in a position to complain because of their history of cutting taxes.

As part of the Democratic Party primaries in New York Tuesday night, one of the “liberal lions of Manhattan politics,” Representative Carolyn Maloney lost to fellow lion Representative Jerry Nadler after their districts were consolidated and rearranged via a court order.

With Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban speaking at CPAC in Texas on Thursday, CNN ran a segment on Thursday morning’s New Day which took Orban’s recent controversial comments that “we do not want to become peoples of mixed race” and ran with them, heavily implying that Orban would unleash a second Holocaust on the world if Hungary’s economy slips into a recession.
