Anyone who has been watching any cable news during the early stages of the 2020 race knows how dominant, informational and powerful a role cable news has come to play in providing a microphone and stage for new voices and shaping the national conversation of politics and the presidency.
Let’s put aside all the heated rhetoric and personality-oriented-Trump-v-Acosta framing and ask more fundamental questions, such as: With all the disinformation and lies coming from that podium in the White House press room, what are we getting from these sessions anyway?
CNN is suing President Donald Trump and top aides on the White House communications team in an effort to get correspondent Jim Acosta’s press credentials immediately restored, the network announced this morning.
President Donald J. Trump on Friday called White House correspondent and CNN political analyst April Ryan a “loser” and “nasty,” and hinted that he is considering revoking press credentials of journalists.
Even by the contentious standards of President Trump’s generally troubled relationship with press, what happened Wednesday at the White House between him and reporters from CNN, NBC, PBS and American Urban Radio Networks is truly shocking. His response to CNN's Jim Acosta is beyond the pale.
I cannot let this work week end without voicing outrage over CNN correspondent Kaitlan Collins being barred from a White House press event Wednesday. The more I think about it, the angrier I get — especially Deputy Chief of Staff Bill Shine lecturing her.
Local affiliates of the Sinclair Broadcast Group have posted links on the masthead of their websites to a youtube video responding to criticism regarding a message the company aired last week on the perils of “fake” news.
While Zuckerberg sounded like he was saying some of the right things in the CNN interview about the Cambridge Analytica scandal, his record on matters of social responsibility and stewardship of personal data contributed by members of his Facebook community is dismal.
I have seen a lot of strange things on cable news TV the last 25 years, but the journey through live interviews that former Donald Trump aide Sam Nunberg took Monday on MSNBC and CNN was one of the strangest and saddest.
The right-wing's 'deep state' narrative is sounding way too much like Joe McCarthy talk from the 1950s to me. That was one of my observations on CNN's "Reliable Sources" Sunday in a conversation with host Brian Stelter, CNN's Hadas Gold and Yahoo's Michael Isikoff.
It is easy to mock cable news for its countdown clocks, endless loops of the same images playing repeatedly on breaking news, and occasionally over-the top prime-time hosts. But I have also been finding some of the smartest discussions and most in-depth coverage there as well.
For the last 18 months, CNN has chosen to live or die with political operatives playing a prominent role in its campaign coverage. Despite widespread criticism, the channel stuck with that strategy on election night, and mainly died with it in the early going.
Fox News has been getting some support for a statement it issued Friday denouncing Donald Trump for his continued attacks on show host Megyn Kelly. But on CNN's "Reliable Sources" Sunday, I said the tough Fox stance was about seven months late.
The first thing you should know about the CNN-Baltimore Sun special report "Who Killed Freddie Gray?" is that it doesn't deliver on the promise of the title. But that TV tease of a title is one of the few criticism I have of this hour-long report that looks at Gray¿s death, the unrest that followed and some of the efforts to improve police-community relations since. And no matter how much you think you know about Freddie Gray and the events following his death, you will learn something from this skillfully crafted production.
A coalition of local and national media outlets has intervened in court to call for broader transparency and increased access to legal documents in the prosecution of the Baltimore police officers in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray.
Mike Rowe describes his CNN series, "Somebody's Gotta Do It," as "a light-hearted show on a serious network." But this season, which starts at 10 p.m. Sunday, he's going to take on a very serious topic: Baltimore's media image following the riots in April after the death of Freddie Gray.
If you want to see the kind of great journalism that cable TV is still capable of when it shakes itself out of its Trump-drunk summer stupor, turn on CNN or go to CNN.com and chack out its coverage of the desperate journey Syrian refugees are now making through Hungary. The promised land they hope to reach is Germany.
On April 27, when the Baltimore rioting began, CNN anchor-reporter Victor Blackwell was perched in a Marriott Hotel bar in Port-au-Prince on vacation. A TV broadcast footage of teens and others battling police.
Martin O'Malley got a lot of national cable news attention Saturday morning when he announced in Baltimore for president. But most of it was bad, with analysts criticizing him from him the left and the right before and after live coverage of his announcement.
After lighting up the Internet with his use of the "N word" in a heated exchange with CNN's Erin Burnett Tuesday, Baltimore City Council member Carl Stokes was back on the cable channel this afternoon explaining his words.
After a week of cable and network news providing most of the best TV coverage of protests in Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray, the national outlets were mainly missing in action tonight when things got ugly.
