Apparently, one of the duties that comes with being totally in the bag for Hillary Clinton is “fact-checking” her opponent, Donald Trump, while at the same time giving their candidate a free pass.
They do it by putting a caption at the bottom of the screen during coverage of the Republican nominee.

BPR covered this curious habit back in June as an obvious example of media bias, but Heat Street just created a hilarious video entitled “What If CNN Fact-Checked Hillary and Obama Like They Do for Trump?” that highlights the absurdity and the sheer hypocrisy the network engages in.
Check it out below:
On his Thursday radio show, Rush Limbaugh had strong words about the practice. “It’s editorializing. They can do what they want, but I’ve never seen it,” Rush said, “I’ve never seen them do this to a claim that Hillary Clinton has made or any other Democrat. I’ve seen it repeatedly with claims that Trump makes. Normally what they do is just report what a candidate is saying and they leave it up to their brilliant audience to wade through the muck and find out the truth of it … Hey, CNN, you know, you’re falling to third place for a reason. The numbers are in. CNN has now fallen to beneath MSNBC. You have to try to do that. You have to make an effort to throw away that kind of an audience, and I don’t think there’s any question about it. CNN has become the all-Trump-bashing network all the time. It’s just what they do, and I think people don’t want to hear it.”
Piece by piece, CNN is being exposed for the left-wing, Hillary-supporting shills they are, and it’s a glorious thing to behold.
We’ll let Donald Trump have the last word on this one. On his Facebook page, Trump himself recently posted a BPR piece that included video of host Chris Cuomo’s 2014 brief moment of candor, when he said on-camera, “We couldn’t help her [Hillary Clinton] any more than we have, she’s got just a free ride so far from the media, we’re the biggest ones promoting her campaign, so it had better happen.”
In his post, Trump called it the “Clinton News Network.”
Yep, that about sums it up!
