During the 2016 election, CNN spent so much time attacking Donald Trump they could have been called the Clinton News Network.
Their biased coverage turned much of the country against them.
And things could get even worse after a smoking gun just dropped proving that CNN works for the Democrats.
Fake News CNN Exposed
Time and time again CNN has made it clear to the American people that they are biased.
President Trump has helped make that clear, labeling them as “fake news,” much to the ire of the establishment that has been propped up by their reporting.
In response to Trump’s criticisms, CNN has continually denied claims of their bias.
But their denials are belied by their own reporting, which can easily be proved as biased under the slightest scrutiny.
The latest case proving just how biased they are has to do with a high-ranking Democrat being caught up in a domestic abuse scandal.
A Democrat Superstar Narrowly Escapes Defeat
When accusations drop about a politician engaging in a domestic abuse situation, it can very easily take them down.
So when Rep. Keith Ellison, who is also a prominent leader in the Democratic National Committee, had domestic abuse allegations drop against him, coming from the son of a woman he once dated, it could have been disastrous.
It was especially troubling for Ellison considering that he was just days away from a highly contested race for Attorney General in Minnesota.
But despite the troubling accusations, he still was able to win his parties’ nomination for the position.
That is a much different position than many; mostly Republican politicians have been in when accusations of misconduct dropped.
Just last year, Judge Roy Moore was upset in his run for U.S. Senate in Alabama due to accusations that were thrown his way about sexual misconduct near the start of his long career in law.
Despite there being no evidence, he was able to be defeated in a race that he would have almost certainly won otherwise.
But in Ellison’s case, something was different.
That could be that the media didn’t care so much about Ellison’s accusations like they would if it were a Republican.
Covering For Democrats, Attacking Republicans
In the case of Ellison, media watchdog groups have shown that CNN spent a total of 4 minutes and 21 seconds covering his scandal.
But, on the other hand, when Republican Rep. Jim Jordan was facing accusations in a similar light just before an election, CNN spent over 20 on-air minutes talking about him.
The one thing that is different about the case of Ellison and of Jordan is that the accusations against Jordan were found to be false.
And once they were disproven, CNN didn’t spend close to the same amount of time explaining that.
Instead, they spent just one minute explaining how the accusations against Rep. Jordan were false.
This shows a clear double standard and shows that CNN has a clear inclination to harm Republicans while doing as little harm to Democrats as possible.
