You'll Never Guess Who's Angry About CNN "Deceptively" Editing a Video of Sylville Smith's Sister

Andy Cush · 08/17/16 03:55PM

In a recent segment, CNN used a short clip featuring the sister of Sylville Smith, a man who was shot dead by a Milwaukee police officer on Saturday. In CNN’s version of the clip, Sherelle Smith can be heard telling a crowd of onlookers, “Don’t bring the violence here, and the ignorance here.” Later, in a portion of her speech that CNN didn’t air, Smith suggested that if the crowd wanted to riot, they should “take that shit to the suburbs, burn that shit down.”

Ex-Trump Campaign Manager Says Khizr Khan's Son Would Still Be Alive If Trump Were President

This morning, CNN interviewed Khzir and Ghazala Khan, whose DNC speech about their son Army Capt. Humayun Khan has proven to be the most lasting moment of either convention. With Donald Trump and his surrogates feuding with the Khans, CNN turned to their Trump foot soldier, deposed campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, who, despite being reportedly fired by Trump’s children, may still be quasi-working for Trump while ostensibly neutrally opining about him on television.

CNN’s hiring of ex-Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski has already proven to be a gigantic mess. Journalists—including, reportedly, those within CNN—have objected to the network paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to a man who has personally threatened people who are now his colleagues, but CNN has soldiered on anyway with the belief that Lewandowski provides unique insight into the Trump campaign.

Are CNN Staffers Actually Staging a “Revolt” Over Corey Lewandowski?

J.K. Trotter · 06/27/16 12:00PM

On Friday, Page Six reported that CNN staffers were “pissed” and felt “betrayed” after the network’s president, Jeff Zucker, hired Donald Trump’s physically combative former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, as an exclusive contributor to CNN programming. Citing what appear to be at least three sources (including one “TV insider”), the column claimed that female and Latino staffers were particularly alarmed by Lewandowski’s new position:

Anderson Cooper Reads Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi For Filth 

Jordan Sargent · 06/14/16 04:20PM

This afternoon on CNN, Anderson Cooper interviewed Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi. You know how these things generally go. The host asks the guest a few questions, the guest regurgitates some talking points, the host tries to pin the guest on a point, the guest evades, everyone laughs, and we go to a commercial. But today would be different!

News Organizations Can Now Objectively Say Donald Trump Is Lying

Tom Scocca · 06/02/16 02:20PM

One of the difficulties the mainstream press has faced in covering the Donald Trump campaign is that Trump is a ceaseless and aggressive liar. The traditional etiquette standards known as “objective journalism” discourage media outlets from pointing out that a politician’s message is contrary to known facts—to do so seems like taking sides, or, God forbid, expressing an opinion.

Finally, CNN Asks a Hard Question: Does Donald Trump's Cock Match His Skin Color?

Andy Cush · 05/25/16 11:36AM

Late-night CNN viewers were treated to a brief moment of Cinemax-style steaminess during a segment that aired at about 1:30 a.m. Eastern time today. While on-air personalities were discussing protests at a Donald Trump rally in New Mexico last night, the screen behind them displayed a tweet from the Donald about the event. “Does your cock match your skin color?” read the first reply, which was also displayed. “Like, is it orange?”

Megyn Kelly Bravely Admits All Cable News Is Garbage

Last night on her television program, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly presided over a discussion on the right’s current paranoid fixation that the Washington Post has 20 reporters digging into Donald Trump’s life for a planned book on the presumed Republican nominee.
