Conservative commentator and author Ann Coulter is urging White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to ban CNN from the press briefings.

Her call is coming in the wake of a fake claim made by CNN News anchor Ana Cabera meant to make a remark made by President Donald Trump seem racist.
During Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process, in the wake of the sexual assault allegations, President Trump said that ” it’s ‘a very scary time for young men in America.”
But when Cabera recounted the statement, she added “white” in place of “young.”
The next day she apologized, but because it was network television, it can’t truly be taken back.
Yesterday my show incorrectly quoted a statement attributed to the president and we regret the error. My goal is to always be as accurate as possible and I am sincerely sorry for the mistake.

While Cabera is painting it as a simple mistake, Coulter contends it is a malicious attack on the president, intentionally invoking race.
“CNN intentionally told an ugly lie about the most incendiary issue roiling the nation: race. It wasn’t a lie about Trump’s position on tax policy, North Korea, or school vouchers. The network deliberately pushed a racism narrative calculated to incite racial hatred that could get someone killed.
Like a professional jewel thief swiping a Cartier watch so deftly that the guard doesn’t notice, Cabrera launched the lie during a segment that began: “People are talking about a string of recent incidents with racial undertones.”
“People are talking about” is how opinion journalism masquerades as news. What topics aren’t “people talking about”?
People are talking about CNN head Jeff Zucker’s split from his wife after 21 years.
People are talking about Chris Cuomo’s behavior at the CNN Christmas party.
People are talking about how Ana Cabrera got her job.
Cabrera then presented two stories about white people falsely accusing black people of doing things they hadn’t done — which was ironic, inasmuch as Cabrera was about to falsely accuse Trump of doing something he hadn’t done.”
While it is unlikely CNN will face an outright ban, they have faced consequences for actions the White House considered disruptive.
In July, CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins was banned from a White House press event after shouting questions at the President.
OOPS: CNN Legal Analyst Suspended for Indecent Exposure During Zoom Call
A liberal journalist and CNN legal analyst has been suspended from his position at New Yorker magazine after he appears to have exposed his penis during a Zoom call.
Jeffrey Toobin reportedly revealed his genitalia during a teleconference call between New Yorker employees and personnel of a New York radio station. He says that the exposure was totally unintentional, and that he wasn’t aware his camera feed was streaming to other people.
The CNN pundit, who is known for delivering Russian collusion conspiracy theories, apologized for the wardrobe malfunction in a statement provided to Vice. “I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers.”
“I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video,” said Toobin.
New Yorker spokeswoman Natalie Raabe went on to confirm that Toobin has been suspended as the matter is investigated. A CNN representative also confirmed that the media personality is on “time off” from on-air appearances with the channel.
This was almost certainly an unintentional mistake, although it’s an embarrassing and careless one.
I’d urge all the guys out there to avoid ever placing themselves in this situation, but most don’t need to be reminded to keep their pants on. One possible way to minimize the likelihood of this occurrence is doing so during teleconference calls.
Vice is now reporting that Toobin was caught outright masturbating during the zoom conference call.
“The two sources described a juncture in the election simulation when there was a strategy session, and the Democrats and Republicans went into their respective break out rooms for about 10 minutes. At this point, they said, it seemed like Toobin was on a second video call. The sources said that when the groups returned from their break out rooms, Toobin lowered the camera. The people on the call said they could see Toobin touching his penis. Toobin then left the call. Moments later, he called back in, seemingly unaware of what his colleagues had been able to see, and the simulation continued.”
