Kimberly Morin writes that CNN never fails to let their viewers down with their on-air picks to represent them. Their latest pick is a purveyor of fake news and false claims. PERFECT MATCH.
April Ryan has been hired as a political analyst for CNN. She’s the reporter who got called out for making false racism allegations against Donald Trump. So of course CNN hired her. From the Washington Free Beacon:
Ryan was recently the center of controversy when she and Spicer got into a heated argument after the White House spokesman told her to stop shaking her head as he was answering a question. The comment led journalists to condemn Spicer and suggest his comments were racist and sexist because Ryan is an African-American woman. Media figures also defended Ryan as a journalist without an agenda.
Back in February, Ryan accused President Trump of making a racially-charged comment that he never said.
“When he was Candidate Trump, he said things like, you know, ‘We made this country,’ meaning white America, not necessarily black,” Ryan said during a White House press briefing.
“I don’t know why you would say that. What do you mean?” Spicer asked.
“No, no, no. He said that. I heard him say that,” Ryan said.
So, CNN hires a woman who completely made something up about Trump to paint him as a racist, which actually makes her the racist.
Surely this will elevate CNN’s popularity with the left-wing crowd, since the general public has gotten sick of their fake news.
