CNN ‘Openly Despises Conservatives,’ Former Contributor Says
In a long form exposé, Mediaite compiled a number of interviews with former CNN contributors and analysts, all of whom shared the same sentiment: CNN does not like conservatives who support President Donald J. Trump.
“CNN used to pretend it accepted right wing voices for balance, but now it openly despises conservatives who are pro-Trump,” Buck Sexton said. “Today the entire enterprise clings to a fundamental dishonesty: that it has no political agenda. Taking down Trump is obviously the agenda. And in this regard, some of CNN’s ‘hard news’ anchors are the biggest journalistic frauds of all.”
Sexton now works as an anchor at HillTV.
Former CNN analyst Stephen Moore shared a similar story.
“Who are the Republicans [at CNN]?” he asked rhetorically. “John Kasich? He hates Trump!”
“CNN is the hate Trump network,” he continued. “They just trash Trump every single hour of every single day. All they’ve talked about for two years is the Muller [sic] report and how bad does it make them look now that it proved nothing?”
Mediaite also chronicled the exodus of right-of-center contributors who have left the news network, or whose contracts were not renewed.
The names included commentators Jeffrey Lord, Ed Martin, and Andre Bauer, former Georgia Congressman Jack Kingston, one-time Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, former Trump administration official Marc Short, and most recently former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, a known #NeverTrump “Republican,” who was recently hired to work at the Department of Homeland Security.
