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.
As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen
Right on cue.
With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.
For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”
This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.
Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”
On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”
“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.
And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.
The left is so predictable, isn’t it?
