Liberal media outlets like CNN and MSNBC are absolutely obsessed with Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for Stormy Daniels. They have featured him on their shows a staggering 147 times over the last 10 weeks. Do you think they have talked about the economy or the low unemployment rate even half as many times?

UPDATE: Porn Star Lawyer Interviewed 147 Times in 10 Weeks
In the past ten weeks, lawyer Michael Avenatti, who is representing porn star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuits against President Trump, has been interviewed a staggering 147 times on broadcast and cable news shows.
More than half of those interviews (74) were on CNN, which almost certainly makes Avenatti the most ubiquitous guest in the network’s history. No guest — not Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders in 2016, nor Adam Schiff in 2017 — received anything close to the outpouring of free media coverage that CNN has bequeathed to Avenatti.
The media’s massive donation of publicity is obviously the main reason why Daniels and Avenatti have been able to use a crowd funding site to raise a whopping $500,000 to fund their anti-Trump lawsuits, with many of the thousands of anonymous donors citing the interviews as they make their gifts.
The latest Media Research Center study tallied all of Avenatti’s interviews on national news programs from March 7 (when the publicity first began) through May 15. While CNN has been the friendliest network, hosting the Trump-bashing lawyer an astonishing 74 times, MSNBC has been close behind, donating 57 segments featuring Avenatti.
On a single day (May 3), MSNBC featured Avenatti a stunning seven times — from 7am ET (Morning Joe) through 10pm ET (The Last Word).
Why don’t they just offer him his own show? Isn’t that where this is all ultimately going?
