CNN FAIL – Really CNN? – During Ben Taub Shooting Scare

On 2/22/2017Β there was a possible shooting at the Ben Taub hospital in Houston, Texas. Sometime around 3:00pm est the news broke on twitter and shortly after on CNN. At first CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin teased the story while going into a commercial break. When they returned, Brooke had only the helicopter feed from CNN’s affiliate in Houston to work with.

After reciting what the voice in her ear told her to, which lasted about 2 minutes, Brooke added some insightfulness of a crack reporter, and then restated the facts that she just gave 3 minutes ago.

Then, to transition from the breaking news to more “breaking news” of President Trump either visiting the National Museum of African American History or the “breaking news” of the pending new travel ban, she chose this line:

“Now let’s get back to talking about the President.”

Even though I was not watching the television, had it on in the background while doing some home repairs, my head almost exploded. Did I hear her correctly? She just transitioned from a possible shooting at a hospital into the normal non breaking news of bashing the President and actually said that is what they are doing!

Come on CNN, you’re not even trying to hide the fake news spin you are spewing now.
