While Fox News and even MSNBC covered the fun event of President Trump honoring hero dog Conan who helped take down ISIS leader Baghdadi, according to Townhall, CNN chose to ignore the event altogether.
Ironically, CNN has been more than willing to devote time to multiple speculative segments such as multiple segments on whether Trump’s following is a “cult.”
President Trump surprised White House reporters with Conan, the military working dog who was slightly injured in the U.S. raid that led to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s death, on Monday.
But if you were watching CNN, you would not have known the event was happening. CNN’s show “Inside Politics” was in the middle of a commercial break when Trump started to speak to the press with Conan at his side. Fox News interrupted its regularly scheduled programming to air the event. Trump spoke for around six minutes.
MSNBC briefly covered the event live before host Andrea Mitchell cut back to talking about the news surrounding impeachment.
“Conan came over from the Middle East, just arrived with some of the great people from the special forces. It was a flawless attack and al-Baghdadi is gone,” Trump said at the event. “That was a flawless attack and I guess they got quite a few of them. We just gave him a medal and a plaque. And I actually think Conan knew exactly what was going on. But a dog that is very, very special.”
On Sunday, CNN’s “reliable sources” ended their segment by bringing on an “expert” who argued President Trump is running a “destructive cult” that uses tactics including “mind control.”
This is @CNN, "the most trusted name in news." Media "journalist" @brianstelter ended his Sunday show "Reliable Sources" with a segment telling viewers Trump is a "destructive cult leader" a kin to Jim Jones and using "mind control" to manipulate his supporters. pic.twitter.com/j7XZnHTUdg

This came only two weeks after Stelter chose to bring in former White House aide Anthony Scaramucci to liken Trump support to a cult.
And then when Stelter brought on Dan Rather, they once again brought up the concept of Trump support being … yes, a “cult.”
