In the same week that President Trump nailed members of the press for their aggressive bias and rampant fake news, a CNN anchor confirmed that reality when in a speech she likened Trump very explicitly to Hitler.
That occurred simultaneously as her boss was bidding on two pictures of Barack Obama for his wall.
Unbiased? Not so much.
Here’s more from Daily Caller…
In the weeks after Donald Trump won the election, CNN chief Jeff Zucker watched as one of his employees compared the new president to Adolf Hitler.
At a White House press conference Thursday, Trump declared that he was changing his moniker for the network from “fake news” to “very fake news.”
There’s been a ton of well-publicized drama between the two camps. The White House has threatened to throw Jim Acosta out of the briefing room. Jake Tapper has bashed Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway for lying on air. And his Sunday show recently declined an offer by the White House to have her come on.
You may think Trump is too harsh on CNN.
But take a look at how the network treated Trump back in November.
Less than a week after Trump won the election, a cadre of CNN employees made their way to the Ronald Reagan Building in downtown Washington to attend the 2016 International Center for Journalists awards dinner.
CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer was the emcee of the November 14, 2016 event. Zucker, CNN’s Worldwide president, was also there — sitting near the front of the ballroom — where he had the pleasure of witnessing two of his employees receive awards.
First up was Clarissa Ward, a war correspondent for the network, who gave a gracious speech about how journalists “have to listen to voices we don’t want to hear.”
Carmen Aristegui, on the other hand — whose popular show airs on CNN Espanol — compared Trump to Adolf Hitler.
The Mirror requested a comment from Zucker as well as a CNN publicist. Neither answered our questions.
In a speech that, at times, stunned the audience into silence, the Mexican journalist began by saying “[t]he triumph of Donald Trump has left us shaken. We are all still in a state of shock.”
