Recently an outspoken British reporter for the U.K. Daily Mail made an appearance on CNN International in London and put into words, while live and on the air, what millions of Americans have been saying to themselves and others throughout the 2016 election cycle, if not for years before that.
Journalist Katie Hopkins called out CNN for being the “Clinton News Network,” citing its overwhelming bias in favor of Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, and refused to back down from her assertion when challenged by the stammeringly self-righteous and indignant host, Hala Gorani.
Asked about her support for Republican nominee Donald Trump, Hopkins proclaimed, “I think he’s going to win. I think you guys are in for a big surprise, which I am quite excited about.”
“I think we have seen a very similar thing here in the U.K. with Brexit,” she continued. “We saw a lot of the liberal press kind of sneering at Brexiteers. We see a lot of the sneering that we’re seeing from the Clinton News Network.”
Gorani interjected, “That’s CNN, you’re calling us the Clinton News Network,” to which Hopkins immediately responded, “That’s exactly correct.”
When Gorani asked why Hopkins would say such a thing about the network, Hopkins explained that she was referring to the manipulated polls that CNN routinely passes off on viewers showing Clinton with a seemingly insurmountable lead over Trump.
Hopkins proceeded to say that she and many others had “Grown bored” with the collection of “meaningless” polls that were clearly biased in favor of Clinton and downplayed support for Trump.
“I will say having sat in the Republican convention and having watched your coverage, it is completely biased. And I think Trump is doing a great job,” stated Hopkins.
The two then tried to speak over each other for a moment, with Gorani demanding proof that CNN was biased, until Hopkins broke through by decrying CNN’s portrayal of woman as “victims” who need to be shielded from someone like Trump, informing the host that women in general are plenty capable of deciding for themselves if they are threatened by Trump or not.
She then proceeded to state that polls have shown how much Clinton is disliked by the general public, even saying, “I find her abhorrent to look at. Her little smile there does nothing for me.”
Then Gorani projected her own network’s bias by proclaiming that Hopkins put words in her mouth that she never said, something CNN and other liberal networks have routinely done to Trump throughout the entire election cycle.
Sparks flew for several minutes after that.
This British reporter held nothing back in her assault on CNN’s anti-Trump and pro-Clinton bias, keeping the CNN anchor tongue-tied and flustered through the entire interview.
We can only say good job to Katie Hopkins for doing what millions can only dream about doing themselves – going on CNN and calling them out for their bias in their face.
