CNN Anchor Abruptly Ends Interview After Trump Spox Utters Inconvenient Facts

‘Total Panic’ Facts About Debate-Host Jake Tapper

In case you needed a preview of what to expect during this week’s presidential election debate – hosted by CNN – we present the following…

Just seconds after Trump 2024 National Press Secretary Karoline Leavitt began to discuss CNN’s historical bias against her candidate – most specifically that of debate moderator Jake Tapper’s history of anti-Trump lies – CNN anchor Kasie Hunt “ma’am’d” her and immediately cut her mic and ended the interview…

Hunt attempted to defend her position in a post on X:

Kasie says “respect my colleagues” but she is OK with her and her colleagues not respecting journalistic principles of neutrality

Meanwhile, JustTheNews reports that Hunt’s “colleague” who must be “respected” – Jake Tapper – is at the center of a defamation suit brought by a consulting company which alleges that the network and one of its reporters lied about the company’s work.

The network’s defense: CNN did not intend to harm and its language was “opinion or ambiguous.”

“Jake Tapper started his career working for a Democrat politician and he has never been able to shake the habit. Trying to run cover for Biden’s disastrous pullout from Afghanistan, he and his CNN show slimed a hero who saved the lives of those Biden put in jeopardy. Now CNN is facing a billion dollar defamation suit at the same time Tapper will be moderating the presidential debate featuring the politician he lied for. Unreal,” Dan Schneider, Vice President at conservative media watchdog Media Research Center, told Just the News in a statement. His organization reported that CNN has since deleted the TV segment under scrutiny from its website. 

The lawsuit and CNN’s defense is clearly adding fuel to the critics of the network which has faced accusations of bias. Trust in CNN has become one of the most polarizing datapoints when comparing the opinions of Democrats and Republicans, with a 96-point disparity in trust for “The Most Trusted Name in News,” according to a May 2024 YouGov poll. Americans’ overall trust in media has also declined, cratering to an all-time low last year, according to an October 2023 Gallup poll.

As Leavitt so devastatingly pointed out in a post on X:

“You cut off my microphone for bringing up the debate moderator’s history of anti-Trump lies. This proved our point that President Trump will not be treated fairly on Thursday. Yet he is still willing to go into this 3-1 fight to bring his winning message to the American people, and he will win.”

While she is likely right on the 3-on-1, we are more interested in the cocktail of drugs that will be required to keep Biden cogent and upright for the 90-minute ‘debate’…
