On Thursday, US Attorney General William Barr and the DOJ released the recently-submitted Mueller report to the public, prompting outrage and dismay from critics of President Trump, following the report ultimately clearing him of wrongdoing.
For many mainstream media pundits, specifically at CNN, the news came as a heavy blow, given the network’s devoted coverage of the allegations against the president.

Conservatives quickly took note of the somber tone at CNN, and flocked to social media to comment, with many pointing out that the network’s pundits were left reeling over not only the vindication of Trump, but the damage to their own reputations, as well.
For many at CNN, whose careers seemed to revolve around the “Russian collusion” narrative for nearly three years, the revelation that President Trump didn’t collude with Russia or obstruct justice in the ensuing investigation is proving a bitter pill to swallow.

watching CNN is like peering in through the window of a group therapy session in which everyone keeps saying they’re over X, but they can’t stop talking about X.

CNN is currently doing a full-blown, scene-by-scene remake of the Jamestown massacre, but with deranged left-wing pundits and discredited conspiracy theories as opposed to cultists and Kool-Aid.

Just for laughs I watched FAKE NEWS CNN anchors after Barr presser & actually feel sorry for them. They remind me why we so distrust media because they are truly blind to their irrational and blind hatred of @realDonaldTrump and ppl who voted for him. #FakeNewsMedia

I’ve honestly never seen the type of media meltdown that I’m seeing on CNN. They are so emotionally invested in the storyline that they’ve been pushing for 2+ years and they know what Mueller did to it and how this will forever reflect on them.

Not a single person on this CNN mega panel has a shred of credibility to analyze the Mueller report as a nonpartisan journo.
Not one. https://t.co/wq2na5kv7s

CNN hasn’t had a single pro-Trump voice on air today. Just endless staffers all looking for the very worst in the #Mueller report & downplaying key finding there was none of the Russian collusion they’ve screamed about for 2yrs.
C’mon guys, at least TRY to look impartial.
