CNN is a running joke and their ratings reflect that. There is simply no reason to take them seriously on any topic.

CNN is a mid-tier cable news network that provides non-stop breaking news to bored airport travelers and internet journalists. The network has breathlessly covered President Donald Trump’s every fart and utterance since 2015 and has contributed to the “national dialogue” through countless interviews with serious public intellectuals. Michael Avenatti, for example.
One of CNN’s most recent hires, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, was found to have lied to federal investigators under oath prior to his firing in March 2018. In addition to his role as CNN contributor, McCabe has a new side hustle: Keynote speaker at Democratic Party fundraisers.
And speaking of the network’s keen eye for talent, CNN invited celebrity white nationalist Richard Spencer on in June to discuss Donald Trump’s “racist tweets.” Brian Stelter, who hosts a show called Reliable Sources, recently nodded along as his guest, former Duke University chair of psychiatry Allen Francis, argued that Trump “may be responsible for many more million deaths” than genocidal dictators Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, and Mao Zedong.
It wasn’t the first time Trump has been compared to Hitler on the network. CNN host Don Lemon did it in July, which could explain why the New York Times has reportedly banned reporters from appearing on Lemon’s show. In addition to interviewing Michael Avenatti dozens of times on his show, Lemon hosted the disgraced lawyer at a party in the Hamptons.
