Steve Hilton corrects CNN anchor’s sweater with much-needed F-word


Fox News host Steve Hilton slammed CNN’s hypocrisy as a network anchor flaunted attire declaring “facts first” on the air.

The host of “The Next Revolution” called out CNN “journalist” Kate Bolduan in a tweet on Friday after her tone deaf decision to flout a $380 cashmere sweater with a message on the air. The fashion statement displayed the phrase “facts first” embroidered in pink cursive lettering, apparently a nod to the network’s slogan during President Donald Trump’s time in office.

Bolduan joined CNN colleagues who also lack a sense of self-awareness, choosing to flaunt her ill-timed fashion as the outlet is under fire for ignoring reports on Democrat Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and his questionable foreign business dealings.

“This from the people who covered up Biden corruption before the election,” Hilton snarked on Twitter, adding “let’s correct that sweater: ‘f*** facts, back Biden.'”

Lingua Franca NYC, the maker of the cashmere sweater Bolduan was wearing, quickly capitalized on the free CNN advertising, adding a photo of Bolduan in the pink top on its website.

The high-end fashion line explained on its site that $100 of each purchase will be donated to the Committee to Protect Journalists, an “independent, nonprofit organization that promotes press freedom worldwide.”

Steven Krakauer, the executive producer for the “Megyn Kelly Show,” noted that the donation information was added later.

The clothing company also said it stands “with our friends at CNN who start with the facts first.”

The irony of the Bolduan’s tone deaf stand amid CNN’s repeated failure to stick with anything even remotely resembling facts was not lost on many who already know about the network’s bias. Project Veritas leaked conference call recordings that showed how it isn’t really “facts first” at CNN.

Back in October when the New York Post published its first explosive story on Hunter Biden’s emails, CNN Political Director David Chalian said on a conference call that “”Obviously, we’re not going with the New York Post story right now on Hunter Biden.”

CNN President Jeff Zucker told staff on that week that he didn’t think the network should be “repeating unsubstantiated smears just because the right-wing media suggests that we should.”

After weeks of carrying water for the Bidens ahead of the election, claiming the accusations against Hunter Biden were part of a Russian disinformation campaign, CNN had to face reporting on the issue when the Biden transition team released a statement acknowledging that a grand jury investigation had been going on.

“We completely blew another important story, but here’s a 380 dollar sweater for you to virtue signal with!” National Review senior writer David Harsanyi wrote on Twitter in reaction to Bolduan’s on-air fashion choice.

“Imagine posing as a news company while promoting sweaters that cost $380.00 and being like ‘Pretty cool huh!'” conservative commentator Stephen Miller tweeted.

“As you struggle due to Democrat shutdowns that CNN backs, they’re promoting a [$380] sweater with advice that their own network refuses to follow,” radio host Jason Rantz tweeted.

Others also joined in to mock CNN and the Lingua Franca merchandise.
