CNN, in addition to having a frequent issue with accuracy, also has a continuing issue with bias, as Brian Stelter exhibited on Sunday.
President Donald Trump announced that he has chosen Heather Nauert to replace Nikki Haley as the UN Ambassador.
From Daily Wire:
Nauert worked in journalism for 20 years but also served as a government affairs consultant on issues including health insurance, Social Security and taxes and was a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
In April 2017, the United States Department of State announced that Nauert would become the new department’s spokesman. This past March, she was named Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs. And on Thursday, Trump nominated her for U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
Some on the left are attacking that choice claiming Nauert doesn’t have enough experience for the job.
So let’s hear from that objective unbiased CNN reporter Brian Stelter as he interviews “conservative” Max Boot.
“What do we do? Max, she is not qualified for this job,” Stelter says as he asks Boot what they can do to stop here from assuming the job. “She’s qualified for a lot of other jobs. She’s not qualified to be UN Ambassador.”
Boot then complains about the fact that there are a few other people who have been on Fox are now working for the Trump administration, Bill Shine, Mercedes Schlapp, John Bolton, all of whom have long resumes for the jobs they have assumed.
As the Daily Wire notes, there were at least 24 journalists who joined the Obama administration, without any comment from Brian Stelter or CNN about it. Not to mention all the Obama administration people who subsequently joined media after the administration.
But CNN has insisted they “don’t pick a side” despite the ample evidence, such as Stelter’s remarks that they, in fact, do.
