When news of a major terrorist attack broke yesterday, most of the world’s media were quick to let everyone know the facts as they were being released, but apparently, CNN thought it was far more important to try and make political points by continuing to bash Donald Trump over unproven, unfounded allegations.
It is beginning to seem that CNN has some kind of contract, that means they have to put forward negative rhetoric about the President for a set amount of time each hour…How else to explain their inability to break away and report actual news?
Questions need to be asked about their producers and programming. If it turns out that they are being paid to work against Trump, then that is actually ok, they can do what they want, but don’t pretend that they are a news agency. They’re a disgrace.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
CNN and MSNBC largely ignored breaking news of a terror attack Monday night in England for nearly an hour to rehash news about President Trump and accusations his campaign colluded with Russia during the election.
Initial reports of explosions at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester came in around 6 p.m. EST, and Fox News began extensive coverage of the attack around 6:50 p.m. By then at least 20 were reported dead and hundreds wounded in what was quickly becoming a clear instance of a major terror attack.
CNN’s Erin Burnett and MSNBC’s Chris Matthews were obviously eager to dive into the Washington Post report at the top of the 7:00 hour, and their segments were literally torn between that news and news of people getting blown up at the concert. WaPo reported that Trump asked two top U.S. intelligence officials to publicly deny the existence of any evidence his campaign colluded with Russia.
