CNN’s New Day spent the vast majority of their present Thursday morning discussing the tragic college capturing in south Florida that has left 17 useless and injured greater than a dozen others. As typical, the co-anchors repeatedly crossed the road backwards and forwards between activism and journalism; a follow that has turn into fairly widespread in 21st century media.
While she had her activist hat on, Alisyn Camerota, reporting from the crime scene, expressed displeasure on the lawmakers who say it’s “too soon” or not “courteous or respectful” to speak about gun management so quickly after a tragedy. Her co-host Chris Cuomo, anchoring from CNN headquarters in New York, responded by declaring “You can call that out as what it is. That’s B.S.”
The anchors at New Day joined a vocal refrain within the liberal media utilizing the most recent college capturing as a possibility to demand extra gun management. It looks like they’ve adopted Rahm Emanuel’s outdated adage “Never let a crisis go to waste” as their official slogan.
Cuomo additionally complained in regards to the lack of “meaningful consensus on the fundamental proposition of wanting change.” There is actually not an absence of “meaningful consensus” among the many media, all of whom assume that gun management legal guidelines will resolve all the nation’s issues.
As he teased the subsequent phase earlier than a business break, Cuomo appeared to downplay the worth of ideas and prayers, saying “You’ve heard the thoughts and prayers stuff before.” Fortunately, Cuomo didn’t sink so low as to use his favourite catchphrase of “B.S” to describe ideas and prayers. Sadly, this sort of hostility towards the concept of ideas and prayers has virtually turn into a prerequisite for working at liberal media retailers.
This explicit phase on CNN aired earlier than President Trump’s tweet addressing the capturing, which brought on the media to lose their collective thoughts; arguing that “part of the presidency is that you provide leadership in moments like this and this has just not been what he does.”
The American public ought to notice that something wanting gun management is not going to fulfill the ravenous mainstream media, who will proceed to push for it 24/7 till one other juicy scandal from the Trump White House pops up.
