A former CNN editor went on a rampage against his former network, exposing the deep media bias against conservatives in Kavanaugh’s confirmation. The Daily Wire reports:
The former Washington, D.C. bureau chief for CNN ripped the media for its extreme bias, misreporting, and low standards as they joined the Democratic party in launching an all-out assault to stop Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed to the nation’s highest court.
Frank Sesno, who is now the current director of the School of Media and Public Affairs at George Washington University, said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” with Brian Stelter that the public’s trust in the media is “somewhere down below the basement.”
“Do you think the press is coming out of this looking weaker because many people feel that the press chose a side through this?” CNN’s Stelter asked.
“Yes. Certainly, that’s the way it’s going to look to Trump supporters and to people who have been questioning media’s bias and their ability to report straight for a long time,” Sesno responded. “Look, the fact of the matter is that by any reasonable measure, this has been an extraordinary week for this president. Forget the Russia investigation. Forget the tax story. Forget all of the rest. Trade deal with Mexico and Canada, unemployment numbers that haven’t been this low since 1969, and following through on what he said, which was to remake the Supreme Court and a triumph with Kavanaugh himself.”
Will the media ever recover from this abysmal low?
