CNN shills who make their living bashing Trump have thrown out all pretense of objectivity, and now the network is blaring its glaring bias in writing across viewers’ TV screens.
“White House repeats Trumps’ false claim that he’s tougher on Russian than Obama,” the CNN chyron read as Wolf Blitzer’s panel on the Situation Room attacked Trump.
The segment was in response to a tweet President Trump launched on Tuesday claiming that he has been far tougher on Russia than his predecessor.
I have been much tougher on Russia than Obama, just look at the facts. Total Fake News!

The problem with CNN’s chyron is that Trump’s claim was a subjective one. CNN can have experts on to debate the merits of the president’s claim, but to arbitrarily declare it officially “false” on its broadcast is another level of fraudulent journalism.
Conservative national security expert John Noonan took exception to the chyron and raked CNN over the coals on Twitter:
You can get experts to debate the merits of each admin’s policies, that’s perfectly fine. But this isn’t just putting your finger on the scale — it’s sitting on it.
I agree when you say a free and fair press is important. Pls remember the latter

There is plenty of debate to be had.
Trump arming Ukraine, bombing Russia proxies in Syria (2x), NATO bolstering, etc.
Obama ceding Syria. Missile def drawdown. Ignoring: INF viols, NASDAQ hack, Tiblisi bombs, diplo & NGO harassment, MH17, etc. pic.twitter.com/Qq70xnKAku

Of course, there’s an investigation into what appears to be collusion between Russia and Obama to undermine Trump, but CNN wouldn’t want to let that fact get in the way:
