For years now, CNN has continued to trend more and more liberal. Once the standard for cable news, CNN has fallen so far that during the 2016 election, the channel earned the nickname “Clinton News Network.” Even with the anti-Trump bias, the network failed to push their preferred candidate over the top.
Since the end of election season, things have hardly gotten any better. Not only has the network obsessed over the Russian collusion conspiracy theory, but 93% of its Trump coverage has been negative.
At this point, it’s fair to say that CNN is basically the propaganda wing of the DNC.
Knowing this, you’d imagine it’s pretty rare for anyone on the network to go after a Democrat. However, that’s exactly what political correspondent Dana Bash did in a recent segment. Even more surprising? Bash took former President Obama to task for his refusal to disavow Harvey Weinstein.
Tuesday on CNN’s “Wolf,” network political correspondent Dana Bash asked where the Obamas were on condemning Harvey Weinstein over his growing sexual harassment scandal.
Bash said, “You broke the news about Hillary Clinton finally putting out a statement condemning his behavior and distancing herself. The question is whether or not she is going to help gather the $1.4 million that he, as what’s known has bundler [sic], helped her campaign over the years.”
She added, “The other question is where are the Obamas? Where is Michelle Obama? Where is President Obama? He is and probably still is a big supporter of him and his political efforts.
In a surprising twist, someone at CNN was able to hit the nail on the head. Of course, if Trump was associated with someone like Weinstein, the calls for Trump to disavow him would be loud all over the liberal media. Yet, the Obamas appear to have a free pass.
At the end of the day, it shouldn’t be that hard to disavow someone like Weinstein. Regardless of the money he’s poured into your causes, there is simply no place for the behavior he has exhibited. Bash is right, the Obamas should make a statement.
