Default No way, CNN can be "fair & balanced".

Despite their claims of impartiality, it appears from this article, that CNN has no intention of being objective.

Previously, they had some Republican contributors who , although they were not Trump fans..were at least ambivalent toward him.

Now it seems, they have enacted a Stalinist type purge of their contributors, retaining only "never Trumpers" as their token Republican contributors.

Of course, this only points up the obvious existence of a 'media/deep state' cabal, who think they should nominate presidents, rather the people elect them.

Not surprising. The FNN's are headed by CNN and MSNBC. If their lips are moving they are lying.

I was researching Ann Coulter's interview(s) on "The View", a democratic cesspool that Ann was trying to educate, and was startled by the positions the host and panel held then as their "truth", which were big fat LIES [in 2015 and 2017].

Samuel Clements wrote, "If you don't read the newspaper, you are uninformed. If you do read the newspaper, you are misinformed." It is the same now as then.

Ronald Reagan said, "The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so."

Democrats hate America, hate American values, kill babies, accumulate wealth, distribute other people's money, want to turn America into just another s-hole country, and as difficult as it is to pen - they cannot hear nor handle the TRUTH.

Disarm? There is no way on God's green Earth that I will ever go down that road...

Several conservative commentators who were previously employed by CNN are now speaking out against the network, claiming its current identity is "anti-Trump" instead of neutral, as it claims to be. One claims the network "openly despises conservatives."

"Most of us got squeezed out involuntarily,” Jack Kingston, a former Georgia congressman who appeared on the network, told Mediaite. “I was there for two years and was certainly willing to continue. It was clear to me in the end that the Republicans they prefer are anti-Trump Republicans.”

Conservatives come and go
Pro-Trump contributors at CNN seem to have come and gone in recent months. Last week, the network fired former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli as reports indicated he was being considered for a high-ranking immigration post in the Department of Homeland Security.

Earlier this year, CNN fired economic analyst Stephen Moore after President Trump nominated him to serve on the Federal Reserve Board. But Moore withdrew from consideration after CNN and other outlets reported old derogatory remarks he made about women and the Obamas.

Previously, CNN let go other commentators who supported President Trump. Contributors Jeffrey Lord and Ed Martin were fired for remarks they made outside the network. Paris Denard was let go after he was accused of sexual misconduct from a previous job. The contracts of Kingston and former South Carolina Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer were not renewed. And former Trump campaign and administration officials Corey Lewandowski, Marc Short and Jason Miller all had short-lived paid contributorships.

Perceived animus
In addition to Kingston, other ex-CNN contributors weighed in on the perceived animus toward them at the so-called "neutral" cable news network in a report by Mediaite.

Moore has particularly been outspoken about his frustration with CNN.

CNN'S BRIAN STELTER DELETES TWEET CLAIMING HE COVERED MICHAEL AVENATTI STORY: 'I GOT MIXED UP'

“Who are the Republicans, John Kasich? He hates Trump!” Moore said, referring to the former Republican governor of Ohio, whom CNN recently hired. "CNN is the 'hate Trump' network. They just trash Trump every single hour of every single day. All they’ve talked about for two years is the Mueller report and how bad does it make them look now that it proved nothing."

"Who are the Republicans, John Kasich? He hates Trump! CNN is the 'hate Trump' network. They just trash Trump every single hour of every single day."
— Stephen Moore, writer and commentator

The scum on all these networks has finally risen to the top.They don't even bother to disguise their hatred for our American values.They are now open,full blown Socialists and proud of it.

I don't think of myself as a staunch Republican or Democrat.
I am a Christian and a Conservative...........In that order!
