Cover-up News Network: CNN Buries and Whatabouts Biden’s ‘You Ain’t Black’ Taunt

Cover-up News Network: CNN Buries and Whatabouts Biden’s ‘You Ain’t Black’ Taunt

“The most trusted name in news” didn’t cover Biden’s latest blunder until late Friday. Over the weekend, they took the pounce and seize approach, making Republican reactions to the story their primary focal point.

The biggest political story by far Friday was Joe Biden’s epic “you ain’t black” blunder from a Friday morning interview he did with popular New York radio talk show host ‘Charlamagne Tha God’, who is black.

To recap: In addition to saying “you ain’t black” if you had a hard time deciding between him and President Trump, Biden practically yelled at the radio host about his supposedly excellent track record with the black community.

“Take a look at my record, man,” Biden stated emphatically. “I extended the Voting Rights [Act] 25 years. I have a record that is second to none. The NAACP’s endorsed me every time I’ve run. I mean, come on. Take a look at the record. Anyway, thanks, I will come back.”

For those who missed it, here is the full clip again:

With a few exceptions, reactions fell along partisan lines. News outlets from across the spectrum covered it in the immediate aftermath as breaking news and then ran with updates throughout the day, including Fox News and even MSNBC.

CNN, however, went in a much different direction for a cable news network that calls itself “the most trusted name in news.” They decided to only cover the story well after Biden walked his comments back late Friday afternoon:

One thing CNN did manage to find the time to do was to run interference for Biden in another way, playing whataboutism games in an effort to downplay the story:

CNN “reporter” and “fact checker” Daniel Dale did his part, too:

Their balance of their “coverage” beyond that did not get any better. They took the pounce and seize approach, focusing more on Republican reactions to Biden’s comments than the comments themselves:

This is just disgraceful.

Between this story and their delayed and shoddy “coverage” of Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegations against Biden, I’m starting to wonder if CNN should rename their network to “BNN”, because the “Biden News Network” is really all they are at this point.

Carrying water for Biden is using a pretty dry well and a leaky bucket.

The word “bizarre” comes to mind.

joe biden supporters killed #metoo. Now they’re defending the indefensible, racist, #youaintblack. biden’s campaign is like a sociology experiment.

XiNN strikes again!

I cannot look at that guy without laughing.

Btw, take a look at the sordid history of “Judge” Emema Sullivan. It’s shocking:

Judge Emmet Sullivan. Corrupt? Monster?

NPR’s response amounted to a carefully orchestrated and scripted teleplay presented as a candid, realtime conversation, between two NPR correspondents and the anchorwoman ( I think it was Mary).

After presenting that first segment NPR brought in their Biden gaff special operator wet-work experts to bury the festering corpse.

Is Stetler gay?

I have a record that is second to none.

Better than Lincoln, huh?

Did I miss the video with our esteemed writers from legalinsurrection,, I thought it was today?

CNN learned a long time ago to swallow hard for Democrats

They ought to be the “Campaign News Network”

CNN is the most busted name in news.

I bet now that air travel is curtailed CNN viewership is taking a major hit.

You know it’s bad for the Democrats if the headline, or lead sentence, reads “Republicans pounce.”

Somebody at CNN keeps misspelling “busted.”

I love the way the MSM comments on news they never reported on in the first place.

If Uncle Joe is like this now, imagine how he’ll be once he’s on the campaign trail for 12-14 hours.

The funny thing is that the very goal they aspire to–getting rid of Trump–will eventually put them out of business. Who’s going to tune in to President Biden coverage every day?

CNN? Isn’t that the channel you see in airports? The one with the white haired gay guy with the perpetual frown?
