In the latest NewsBusters Podcast, we explore CNN host Chris Cuomo touting how there was a “throughline” from the Tulsa race massacre of 1921 to red-state voter-integrity bills in 2021. How does asking for an ID or moving early voting hours compare to mass murder? The only conclusion is Chris Cuomo isn’t smart.
Several networks strongly criticized a Boston Celtics fan for throwing a water bottle at the head of Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving. That’s great, but it’s ironic that when Antifa radicals throw bottles of water at the heads of CNN reporters or brutalize NBC reporters and producers, those networks either ignored it or said the violent anger was justified. That’s a little frustrating when conservative critiques of the media are shamed for supposedly egging on violence.
Senior analyst Kyle Drennen joins the show to discuss how the networks were overwrought over the new voting-integrity bill in Texas, as well as how NBC’s Today felt it was urgent to offer a sympathetic interview to washed-up protest singer Sinead O’Connor, best known for ripping up a photo of Pope John Paul on Saturday Night Live in 1992. And why are the networks still suffocating any negative story about Hunter Biden?
