CNN Works Hard To Cover for Hillary Clinton

CNN wants to be the place for news. They don’t want to be associated with networks like MSNBC or Fox News because they see both networks as “partisan.” The problem is that CNN can’t weed out its own partisanship – so they have trouble competing because the right can’t trust them and the left thinks they’re too wishy-washy.

Here’s yet another example of their problem.

Recently, Hillary Clinton was the keynote speaker at the National Automobile Dealers Association Convention where she also sat down for a question and answer session.

CNN ran a couple of clips showing two different segments of the discussion. In the first clip, Hillary admits that Benghazi is her greatest regret from her time as Secretary of State. In the second, she is laughing about the proposition of running for President in 2016 (so am I). The clips were run back to back and someone who wasn’t really paying attention may have thought Clinton was laughing about Benghazi.

Here’s the segment.

Notice how quickly CNN anchor Ashleigh Banfield begins profusely apologizing for the unintended editing. Sure, CNN could have done a better job with it, but it’s clear that these were two different segments that had been edited together for ease of use. It’s hard to imagine Banfield being so quick to defend a conservative whose comments had been edited together and lay the blame at the feet of her editing department.

Once again, CNN seems hopelessly devoted to the Clinton family. It’s a reminder of how supportive of her husband CNN was during the Bill Clinton years.

Don’t let your guard down conservatives – CNN is still in the tank for the Clinton family.
