CNN Claims GOP Legislators Refused to Appear AFTER Canceling on Matt Gaetz Twice

Jake Tapper tried to shame Republicans, claiming CNN couldn’t find one willing to appear on air. But the network cancelled on Matt Gaetz twice.

In the light of two mass shootings in Texas and Ohio over the weekend, CNN claims to have invited 49 Republican legislators to discuss the gun control legislation many progressives are demanding. Jake Tapper claimed that the network couldn’t find one willing to appear on air.

But now it appears the network cancelled two planned segments with Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz, a pugnacious conservative known for fighting the left and pushing back against the establishment of the GOP.

Gaetz confirmed that he had been ready to appear on CNN’s daytime shows two times. The network cancelled the segments on both occasions.

Tapper called out establishment-friendly Republicans such as Will Hurd and Rob Portman, claiming they were unwilling to appear on CNN to debate gun control. He didn’t mention that leading personalities at his own network seem to be equally timid when provided a chance to debate an unapologetic conservative such as Matt Gaetz.

Both Erin Burnett and Anderson Cooper had cancelled on Gaetz.

Gaetz is a frequent target of scorn from progressives and some of their “conservative” servants, such as Bill Kristol. Gaetz made it clear in his tweet about the cable network’s lack of reliability and hesitance to have him on that he was still willing to appear, providing the pro-Second Amendment voice Tapper claims CNN is completely unable to find.

CNN Host Admits He Was “Snookered” By Avenatti After Felony Extortion Conviction

Mainstream media outlets like CNN were instrumental in making Avenatti a political celebrity.

Published

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin admitted he felt “snookered” by disgraced attorney Michael Avenatti after the former political celebrity’s felony conviction for extortion on Friday night.

Toobin struck a penitent tone for his own network’s role in promoting the now-convicted felon. Avenatti was a regular on liberal mainstream media outlets such as CNN and MSNBC throughout 2018, frequently boasting of outlandish lawsuits that were set to finally take down President Trump.

In hindsight, after the “creepy porn lawyer’s” dramatic rise and fall, CNN is largely left with egg on their face for ever having taken him seriously. Toobin admitted this in the segment, showing more reflection than many of his mainstream media colleagues are inclined to undergo.

I feel kind of snookered, because I took him seriously.”

Avenatti has been convicted for a scheme to extort tens of millions of dollars from sporting company Nike. He faces up to decades in prison in upcoming sentencing proceedings, and is currently housed in solitary in New York’s Metropolitan Correctional Center. He’s also set to face even more criminal charges in California, related to accusations he stole lawsuit rewards from his legal clients.

Avenatti’s rise and fall from cable news darling and pugnacious anti-Trump “fighter” to disgraced felon facing a possible life sentence is about as dramatic an arc one could expect to see a public figure undergo.

CNN and MSNBC now face some serious sole searching for their role in promoting the fraud, having taken his boisterous claims at face value for almost a year and even implicitly promoting his ridiculous presidential admiration. At least Toobin appears willing to admit his role in feeding the CPL’s ambitions.
