“Republicans are doing something that is very dangerous to our society and we have to acknowledge that.”
CNN’s Don Lemon said on the air this week that the media should treat Republicans as a danger to society.
Brushing aside his ridiculous bias, one has to ask an obvious question. Don’t they already do that?
From the moment Trump was elected in 2016, pretty much every media outlet, with the exception of FOX News, dropped all pretense of objectivity.
CNN and MSNBC are treating the January 6th Committee hearings like the Nuremberg trials.
Who does Lemon think he’s kidding?
FOX News reports:
Don Lemon: Republicans must be treated as danger to society by media, cannot be ‘coddled’
Appearing on CNN’s New Day Thursday morning, Don Lemon once again urged the media to hold Republicans to a different standard than Democrats in their media coverage.
The primetime host tied the GOP to the threat of “growing extremism” on the right. He warned journalists to not give a “false equivalence” to both sides, and instead acknowledge Republicans were endangering America.
“We sit around and we talk about these things and we want to give this false equivalence to Democrats and Republicans. That is not where we are right now. Republicans are doing something that is very dangerous to our society and we have to acknowledge that. We have to acknowledge that as Americans, we must acknowledge that as journalists because if we don’t, we are not doing our jobs,” Lemon declared.
Of course, the root of this is the liberal media’s collective psychosis in the form of Trump Derangement Syndrome:
Lemon was referring to Republicans who continue to support former President Trump after the January 6, 2021 riot at the Capitol, as well as the recent Supreme Court ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade.
“They have to answer for those questions if they come here on CNN, they must answer for that. If they go on MSNBC, they must answer for that. If they go on ABC, they must answer for that. And they cannot expect to be coddled when they go on to a news organization or if they step in front of a crowd of supporters or voters or Americans.”

Does Lemon think today’s media is like the media of 1987?
"We can't treat Republicans like they're the Reaganesque party of 1987."
And we we may respond "And CNN is nothing like the mildly liberal news network of 1987."
Don Lemon and the CNN hardliners have NO interest in a Reaganesque GOP. They WANT to talk about Trump forever. https://t.co/aAeTX60Fpg

Some Democrats want to pack the Supreme Court and abolish the Senate. Are they a danger to society? How about the Democrat ground troops of Antifa?
Is Don’s new boss paying attention?
He's giving @Discovery mgmt the middle finger along with his boss Chris Licht. Don is keeping '@CNN Zucker' programming it appears👉 'They Have a Lot to Answer For': CNN's Don Lemon Says Media Must Not Accept 'False Equivalence' of Democrats to Republicans https://t.co/7WYHzAOp9t

Lemon thinks no one remembers anything. His network spent four solid years trying to undo the results of the 2016 election. He is not in a position to lecture anyone on threats to democracy.
