CNN’s Don Lemon recently said on the air that the media should treat Republicans as a danger to society.
This is apparently what passes for political analysis on CNN, the network that spent four years trying to undo the results of the 2016 election.
Lemon is clearly lashing out. What he doesn’t realize is that he is alienating viewers and voters. This kind of talk isn’t going to win anyone over to his side.
FOX News reported:
Don Lemon: Republicans must be treated as danger to society by media, cannot be ‘coddled’
Appearing on CNN’s New Day Thursday morning, Don Lemon once again urged the media to hold Republicans to a different standard than Democrats in their media coverage.
The primetime host tied the GOP to the threat of “growing extremism” on the right. He warned journalists to not give a “false equivalence” to both sides, and instead acknowledge Republicans were endangering America.
“We sit around and we talk about these things and we want to give this false equivalence to Democrats and Republicans. That is not where we are right now. Republicans are doing something that is very dangerous to our society and we have to acknowledge that. We have to acknowledge that as Americans, we must acknowledge that as journalists because if we don’t, we are not doing our jobs,” Lemon declared…
Lemon was referring to Republicans who continue to support former President Trump after the January 6, 2021 riot at the Capitol, as well as the recent Supreme Court ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade.
“They have to answer for those questions if they come here on CNN, they must answer for that. If they go on MSNBC, they must answer for that. If they go on ABC, they must answer for that. And they cannot expect to be coddled when they go on to a news organization or if they step in front of a crowd of supporters or voters or Americans.”
Here’s the video:

CNN deserves to fail.
As long as they continue to allow insane talk like this from Lemon and others, they will continue to watch their audience shrink in size.
