I wrote previously about the problems that CNN was having in trying to become a news network. Although Chris Licht, the CEO, has made some positive moves, their ratings are amongst the worst in nine years. While they might be losing some of the liberal-indoctrinated viewers, it’s not like they’re gaining anyone back. Many people don’t believe that they will change.
CNN featured Rep. Adam Schiff (D–CA), Rep. Eric Swalwell, (D–CA), and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D–MN). Dana Bash asked some great questions of Schiff and Swalwell, Omar, and Omar.
Bash pushed Swalwell on Fang Fang and Omar on her anti-Semitism.
Bash wanted to know about Russia’s collusion evidence that Schiff had not produced. He tried to double down but failed. Bash busted Schiff even for lying about the whistleblower involved in the Trump impeachment case. This is the first time we’ve seen Bash called out by liberal media about this lie and the only time he’s been pressed on the network.
Bash cited House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s reasons to kick Schiff off the Intelligence Committee. Bash pointed out that McCarthy had claimed that Schiff’s lies were part of a pattern, which included his lie about the whistleblower. “You claimed that the committee had never spoken to a whistleblower before the Trump impeachment,” Bash stated that “this was not true”.
CNN’s Dana Bash confronted Adam Schiff for his past lies: “Ahead of the first Trump impeachment, you said the committee had not spoken to a whistleblower. In fact, that turned out not to be true.”

Adam Schiff mumbled and tried to cover “I should’ve been more clear in what I answered.”
Just as he was caught lying, CNN ran a confusing video to confuse the viewers. They made Schiff a Republican in their chyron.
Maybe this is why CNN’s Dana Bash asked Adam Schiff even a mildly challenging question yesterday. They probably thought he was a Republican.

Even though they are doing something right, like busting the slimy worm, they must go and make it worse by calling Schiff a Republican. It was like they couldn’t get Democrats to admit to lying so they made Schiff a Republican to distract from the Democratic Party. Once again, the mistake seems to be in the wrong direction: hurting Republicans.
This just shows what Chris Licht said to me earlier: There’s still a lot to get rid of if you want to be taken seriously if you make basic mistakes like this.
