It's hard to imagine any organization trying harder to becoming less respected then this one. CNN is the network which featured Chris Cuomo defending antifa violence, claiming that it was a better kind of violence than the violence which might be offered by its victims. He doesn't bother to mention that antifa is the one that starts the attacks and that there is usually zero violence offered by its victims. They're too busy bleeding from a headwound from a bicycle lock.
CNN is the network which featured Don Lemon claiming that the mob that harassed, threatened, and chased Ted Cruz out of a restaurant were "just people who were upset," and further riotsplained that this "was not mob behavior." The specific group Don Lemon defended was SmashRacism, which is the same group that just attempted to smash through Tucker Carlson's door when his wife and children were in the house.
He actually defended the specific group that just attacked a journalist's home.
When commentator Matt Lewis brought up SmashRacism -- again, the very group that just attempted a home invasion of Tucker Carlson, and its chasing Cruz out of a restaurant, calling it mob behavior, CNN's Brooke Baldwin again defended SmashRacism, claiming it wasn't a "mob," and in fact forbidding the very word from being uttered.
So we have CNN repeatedly defending antifa's tactics, and we have them repeatedly defending the tactics of this particular sect of antifa, SmashRacism.
Remember, this is the network that screams "You're threatening the media!" when people chant "CNN sucks!
