Guess What Sort Of Coverage Biden’s “You Ain’t Black” Comments Got On CNN?

(Tea Party PAC) – You think for all the fuss CNN makes about being called “fake news,” they’d at least try to behave like a proper news network once and awhile.

But nope.

As the right-wing news exploded with Joe Biden’s comments that if an African American votes for President Donald Trump then they “ain’t black,” the famously fake news network tried their best to avoid the biggest 2020 election news story of the week.

Biden made his controversial comments during an explosive interview with Charlamagne tha God on the radio show “The Breakfast Club” when the two discussed Biden’s record with the black community.

“I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden said.

The former Vice President appeared to walk abc these remarks during a conversation with black business leaders, although he couldn’t bring himself to apologize.

“I’ve never ever taken the African-American community for granted, had their support … I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy. I shouldn’t have been so cavalier,” Biden later said, according to Fox News. “I don’t take it for granted at all, and no one, no one should have to vote for any party, based on their race or religion or background.”

Nonetheless, the hashtags #YouAintBlack and #JoeBidenIsARacist began trending on Twitter.

Fox News and MSNBC both covered the story, and ABC, CBS, and NBC addressed it during their evening programs.

CNN, on the other hand, was far too timid.

“Fascinating to watch how the left-leaning cable networks have covered Biden’s ‘you ain’t black’ comment. MSNBC has discussed it nearly every hour… CNN hasn’t mentioned it once,” former CNN digital producer-turned-media critic Steve Krakauer tweeted, Fox reports.

He wasn’t alone. Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University noted the “crickets” from CNN, while RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel called the network out for allowing hours of coverage to pass without mention of Biden’s comments.

“It’s been over 5 HOURS since Biden told Black people they ‘ain’t black’ if they support @realDonaldTrump. How many times has CNN mentioned his bigoted comment on air? ZERO. Unreal,” McDaniel tweeted.

Later, she noted it had been “12 hours” since Biden’s “bigoted remarks,” and tweeted, “We all know that if a Republican made a similar comment, CNN would have reworked their entire day of programming to feature 9-person panels condemning it. The bias is unbelievable.”

“When you take into account how both MSNBC covered this repeatedly and Biden decided to issue a mea culpa, you’re left with no conceivable excuse for CNN other than they did so on purpose,” managing editor for Newsmax, Curtis Houck told Fox News. “Instead, they decided that trashing the administration for allowing houses of worship to reopen and gleefully touting negative hydroxychloroquine headlines were jobs one and two.”

“CNN has their insane way of going about their newsgathering, presentation and selection, but ignoring a story like this for hours and hours reminds us that their demands that other news organizations act like they do should not only be dismissed but laughed out of the room,” he continued.

So what did the network cover instead, you may ask? Fox News explains:

CNN didn’t offer a full on-air report of Biden’s remarks until the end of the 7 p.m. ET hour, when anchor Erin Burnett spoke with Charlamagne tha God about the interview, making it the last major news network to report on Biden’s comments. It had articles published on the website earlier in the day.

Instead, the network spent much of the day offering critical coverage of the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak.

  2. CNN ain’t called FAKE NEWS for nothing. They have earned that reputation. This is why it’s best to ignore them and get your news elsewhere. CNN is just there to do the bidding for the Democratic Party and for China. They could care less about reporting any facts.

  3. Mr. Biden
    The word “Black” means when translated from its origins, “the Devil.” Something that is incapable to doing “good.”
    I am surprised that you as an Educator don’t know that. Well, even if you do I understand.
    But let’s digress to another point for a minute. Racist, as I am sure you also know, means someone that is happy with his or her race. That doesn’t seem to be such a bad thing.
    It would be difficult to be happy with others if one is not happy with ones self.
    Its root word “raz” means head, hair or metaphorically plumb or straight.
    So, Mr. Biden, let me know when you see a “Black” person, I as a college student wouldn’t want to be influenced by the God of Ignorance.
    By the way, we are still waiting for your explanation as to how Chrysler corporation was sold to former Nazi government Germany/Italy under your watch.

  4. Uhhh . . . I THINK it was REPUBILICANS who have defended the RIGHTS and PRIVILEGES (including FREEDON from slavery) of the people of COLOR. Democrats were opposed to these measures, as they were ALWAYS on the WRONG side of HISTORY – every time. One Enlightened Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  5. I find it quite amusing that the democratic leadership continues to allow this babbling bafoon to continue to open his mouth and spew forth the idiocy that is the contained in his addled brain. I would love to see him try to debate our current President, it would truly be an epic smack down. In my circle of friends the black folks in our group find creepy sleepy Joe to be a total joke and a raging racist, womanizing, pedifile. None of them identify with him, and they damn sure don’t want him speaking for them. I think there a lot more black folks in this country that feel the same way.

  6. 90% of viewership wouldn’t know if the communist news network covered what Biden said or not because people don’t watch CNN!

  7. We shouldn’t be too upset that the FAKE NEWS didn’t have much to say. Can’t believe how mistreated President Trump has been since he and his wife came down the escalator to let us know he was running for president. God help us all if VP Biden wins. No way Biden can run this country. President Trump has done an excellent job draining the swamp and keeping his promises more than any president in my lifetime.
