CNN 'Reporters' Get Dunked After Undercutting Their Own Arguments for Capitol Riots Commission

Predictably, the mainstream media’s feathers got more than a little ruffled Friday after Senate Republicans filibustered the Democrats’ efforts at making sure the Capitol riots stay front and center going into the 2022 election season in the form of a supposedly bipartisan “commission” to study what happened on January 6th.


And because they have such trouble hiding their political biases when it comes to their “reporting,” some of them took to the Twitter machine in advance of the Republican filibuster to make what they felt was an important observation about the supposed symbolism of the DOJ having arrested and charged over 400 people in connection with the riots that took place at the Capitol while the McConnell-led GOP minority in the Senate was preparing to set up a road-block against the commission.

Not surprisingly, two of the more vocal noters of this “point” were two Biden cheerleaders at CNN – anchor and chief national security correspondent Jim Sciutto and his colleague Marshall Cohen, who proudly boasts in his Twitter bio that he “covered Mueller.”

Try not to be too captivated by the stunning brilliance on display here:

CNN’s resident media hall monitor Brian Stelter made sure to retweet this one:


Except as others pointed out, doesn’t the fact that the DOJ is doing its thing kinda sorta prove the point Republicans are making about how an unabashedly partisan “commission” is not needed? Cohen and Sciutto basically undercut the arguments being made by “reporters” and commentators at their network about the so-called “need” for one with their tweets without even realizing it.

In addition to that, and as I noted yesterday, Republicans feel it’s unnecessary to add a “commission” on top of what will be the other numerous inevitable Democrat-run committee “investigations” into the attack, investigations that will ultimately be little more than show trials designed not only to obfuscate the matter even more so than they’ve already done but also to keep Trump’s name out there because they – and the MSM – are obsessed.


Let’s also not forget that Sciutto once worked for the Obama-Biden administration, an inconvenient fact the liberally biased network unsuccessfully tried to hide when they announced they’d hired him back in 2013. I’m sure his close ties to that administration have no bearing at all, though, on his opinions about whether or not there should be a Biden-supported commission to study the Capitol riots. Nope. Not at all…
