CNN’s Don Lemon and Jim Acosta proved their tone-deafness once again this week. During a conversation on the air, the two made the claim that neither they nor CNN are anti-Trump.
They claim they’re just holding the powerful to account. People might have believed that if they and others in the media didn’t take an eight year nap under Obama.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Don Lemon: CNN Does Not Hate Trump or Favor Democrats
CNN host Don Lemon on Tuesday attempted to bat down the notion that CNN has bias against President Donald Trump, adding they do not favor Democrats.
CNN’s White House correspondent Jim Acosta sat down with Lemon to discuss his new book, The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America, and the news network’s coverage of the Trump administration.
“For all those people who say, ‘Oh the press, CNN, hates Trump and CNN loves the Democrats,’ I watched Manu Raju with Nancy Pelosi, who clearly did not want to answer Manu’s questions today even in her body language and you know what? He persisted and he asked her the tough questions anyway,” Lemon said.
“So of anyone, a Democrat or a Republican regardless of who it is: If you hold a position of power, we the journalists at CNN are going to question you about it regardless whether you like it or not,” Lemon continued.
Acosta agreed with Lemon’s comments and claimed that just because CNN is “pro-truth” doesn’t mean they are “anti-Trump.” He went on to talk about the theme of his book and how the media is “not the enemy of the people.”
“We are defenders of the people, and we want to defend the people because we are devoted to the people,” Acosta said. “We are not here to spin things or color things a certain way. We’re here to get the way people reliable, accurate information on a daily basis. That’s why we all come into work everyday. We get a high out of it, and I just want to make sure we keep this going as a country.”

Does Don Lemon think no one remembers anything?
From Mother Jones in August:
CNN Anchor Don Lemon Calls Trump Racist
CNN anchor Don Lemon called President Donald Trump “publicly racist” Monday night in a nine-minute diatribe on “CNN Tonight.” Lemon was responding to comments the president made Friday on Twitter, in which he called Lemon the “dumbest man on television.” Trump said Lemon made LeBron James, whom the anchor had interviewed about James’ public school for at-risk kids, “look smart, which isn’t easy to do.” During the interview with Lemon, James commented that Trump was using sports to divide the country.
And that’s just one example of many.
