CNN has been a host of bad takes and bias of late. Ok, to be honest, they always are. But it certainly seems more so than usual in the last couple of days.

From Jake Tapper retweeting George Conway to Anderson Cooper losing his mind, it’s been a festival of fail.

Sharyl Attkisson pointed out media on the left, who have been all-in on trying to accuse folks on the right (and in particular the folks at Fox, their competitor who regularly beats them in the ratings) of downplaying the virus, themselves were the ones making downplaying comments.

Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist highlighted Attkisson’s story, noting it was obviously a coordinated attack on Fox (their competitor) and Republicans.

Apparently, that was too much for the professionals at CNN.


That’s when Sharyl Attkisson let loose. Now, if you know Attkisson, she’s the consummate professional and does her level best to be objective and temperate in her comments. So when she levels Stelter, you know it’s well-deserved.

She also responded to Kaczynski.

Nicely baled and stacked there.

Exactly. It was such a silly objection as all you had to do was click on the links to see the dates. Or, even without Attkisson’s article, the stories are all over the internet.

As she notes, they miss the greater point that most people’s sense on the virus has evolved as more facts have come in, on all sides of the aisle.

Nor do Stelter or Kacynzki point to Democrats who were encouraging people to go out to parades and events in late February such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, and Biden adviser Ron Klain telling people to go to Chinatown (to virtue signal, and “fight racism”). De Blasio made comments even into the middle of March telling people to go out as usual.


Nor do the CNN crew note all the actions the President took in January or the early comments warning about the seriousness of the virus from Fox people like Greg Gutfeld and Tucker Carlson.
