It would be former President Reagan’s 106th birthday today, so to honor that let’s roll out one of his famous “they’re you go again” to introduce this week’s Mainstream Media Scream.
Of course, it’s a CNN rant against President Trump, this time from an overseas correspondent.
CNN’s Diana Magnay was reporting on an anti-Trump protest in London on Saturday morning when she said on CNN Newsroom with Fredricka Whitfield:
“I’m standing now outside Downing Street at the tail end of this protest. I’ll just show you some of the banners that have been left for Theresa May: ‘Theresa the Appeaser.’ Just down here: ‘Trump: Making America Hate Again.’ Just some of the banners that people have had. One of my favorites today is ‘White Lies Matter,’ obviously a reference to Donald Trump and Kellyanne Conway’s ‘alternative facts.'”
Media Research Center Vice President of Research Brent Baker explains the pick: “Is it any wonder President Trump has such well-earned contempt for CNN when their correspondents so casually praise the supposed wittiness of a derogatory attack on administration officials by a bunch of leftists overseas. Did a CNN reporter ever hail a ‘favorite’ Tea Party sign ridiculing Barack Obama? Of course not.”
