CNN Admits They Serve As Parrots For The RNC

CNN Admits They Serve As Parrots For The RNC
By Karoli Kuns 9/06/16 11:21am

For the past three weeks, all we have heard about is how many days it has been since Hillary Clinton held a press conference. The drumbeat has been relentless, consuming reporters on social media on a daily basis. On cable news, innumerable segments from everyone from Andrea Mitchell to Rachel Maddow to Wolf Blitzer were run complaining that Hillary isn't holding a press conference.

There was even a countdown clock. And as it turns out, that countdown came directly from the Republican National Committee, as Ashleigh Banfield admitted in her intro to a discussion with Jeff Zeleny about "the cough," which is the topic of today's huddle.

It has been 174 days since Merrick Garland was nominated to replace Justice Antonin Scalia, who died 205 days ago, but no cable news network has put up a countdown clock for that, nor devoted much more than a passing mention of it over the past several weeks.

2. A nice angle

Confronted in debate with lack of press conferences, HRC should
visit this stonewalling. The issues are all aligned for her. Hope she
knows how to make hay.

3. Hold them accountable. Turn them off

and don't patronize or better still, boycott their advertisers.

4. Parrots

Real parrots have demonstrated capacity for reasoning, empathy, and abstract thought. CNN and the RNC not so much.
