CNN Proves they are Biased

One only needs to change channels between the big three cable news networks to find out which one is the worst in any given story. As the Trump administration continues it’s crackdown on illegal immigration, it’s been covered in depth by all of the MSM, and all of them give their usual bias spin on the topic. What I found interesting was how far CNN went in fulfilling their agenda driven lean to the left.

The video is from YouTube user News Channel

Take notice of the news banner. It’s states “HUNDREDS ARRESTED IN IMMIGRATION RAIDS ACROSS U.S.” This is 100% inaccurate as ICE did not arrest immigrants, they arrested illegal iimigrants, undocumented immigrants. But despite this, CNN is continually misrepresenting the story both in type and when reporting. Their anchors and “expert” pundits all leave off the words that describe the immigrants being “arrested” (detained, deported).

Trump One Ups Obama’s Media War

2/24/2017, the Trump White House barred CNN, L.A. Times, Daily News and a few other media outlets from today’s White House Press gaggle. In their absence Briebart News, One America News Network among others were invited in.

While this is a direct omission from a White House press gaggle in lieu of the daily briefing, it’s not the first time a President avoided or bashed a media outlet. That being said, one must wonder why this is occurring and how large of a restriction of freedom of the press this is.

Let’s try by first looking at this report by CNN, from the YouTube user TrumpTruthWatch.

Brooke begins by delivering the facts about what is going on. She tries to explain what a press gaggle is, but is slightly off. Brooke states that a gaggle is:

An informal gathering of reporters, print, radio, television coming together to be briefed in this case by the White House. You’ve seen the pictures, lot’s of reporters are included in that.

However, a press gaggle is:

A press gaggle (as distinct from a press conference or press briefing) is an informal briefing by the White House Press Secretary which (as used by press secretaries for the George W. Bush administration) is on the record, but disallows videography.

“Gaggles” historically refer to informal briefings the press secretary conducts with the press pool rather than the entire press corps….they were more or less off the record, and their purpose was mostly to exchange information – the president’s schedule and briefing schedule, from the administration side; heads-up on likely topics or early comment on pressing issues, from the news side…. (from Wikipedia).

So during a press gaggle, far less reporters are present than a daily briefing or a full press conference. So she and CNN are a tad off in this claim.
