CNN is the poster child for liberal media bias.
Everyone who works at CNN pretends to be an objective journalist.
And CNN just made a decision about Joe Biden that no one ever expected.
CNN is leading the way on corporate media outlets washing their hands of Joe Biden’s failed presidency.
Liberal media outlets like CNN don’t even pretend to dress up Joe Biden’s failures as successes or provide political cover for the administration.
A recent example of this phenomena occurred when CNN’s liberal anchor Victor Blackwell interviewed White House infrastructure czar Mitch Landrieu.
Blackwell played a clip of former Obama economic advisor and Harvard President Lawrence Summers predicting a recession hitting the U.S. economy in the next two years.
“Here’s the unfortunate, painful fact, and it’s true of the U.S. experience and it’s true of the experience of other rich countries like us,” Summers stated. “When inflation’s above 4 [percent] and unemployment’s below 4 [percent], you are almost certain to have a recession within the next two years.”
“He was right about inflation when White House officials were wrong,” Blackwell asked Landrieu, “What do you think about this calculation?”
Landrieu tried to spin the lousy economic outlook arguing that “the president and his team have been working hard on this, and there’s a lot of evidence that there’s a lot of success in making sure that we have a really good foundation upon which to try to dig ourselves out of.”
Normally, a CNN anchor would swallow that spin wholesale.
But with Joe Biden’s approval rating sinking into the 30s Democrats are terrified that Biden – who claims he intends to run for re-election in 2024 – can’t defeat Donald Trump.
So liberal so-called “journalists” like Blackwell are pummeling the administration with negative coverage in the hopes of forcing Biden to decline to seek re-election so the party can pick a new candidate.
Blackwell rejected Landrieu’s sophistry and demanded Landrieu produce some sort of evidence of economic success.
Landrieu never actually ticked off anything Biden did to curb inflation.
Instead, Landrieu rattled off a series of talking points about Biden supposedly creating 8.3 million new jobs even though the U.S. is still not back to pre-pandemic employment levels.
Blackwell noted that answer avoided the questions and wondered what Biden did to curb inflation.
Landrieu responded with a non-answer about the fake infrastructure bill and Biden emptying the strategic petroleum reserve.
But Blackwell called out Landrieu for the fact these moves did nothing to stop the increase in gas prices.
“They certainly didn’t bring down gas prices,” Blackwell responded. “He announced that release. Today, gas is $4.67 a gallon.”
Landrieu claimed that Biden doesn’t control the price of gas – which is true – but Biden also went out of his way to enact anti-fossil fuel policies that would harm the production of oil and natural gas down the line.
Blackwell countered by noting that when Biden emptied the strategic petroleum reserve Biden claimed it would bring down the price of gas, which was obviously not true.
“Certainly, he does not control the price of gas, but the president said that releasing from the Strategic Reserve would bring down the price of gas, and all we’ve seen since then was a series of record highs,” Blackwell responded.
It takes a lot for the media to turn on a Democrat politician.
But CNN – as well as many other so-called “journalists” – realize Joe Biden is a political loser and are ready to cut him loose in 2024.
