CNS Leads Fawning Pro-Trump Post-Speech Armada
Topic: CNSNews.com

You know the drill: President Trump does something, CNSNews.com publishes multiple articles from its staff stenographers dutifully repeating what he said and portraying it in the most positive possible light.

And so it is with Trump's first speech before Congress on Feb. 28. After the speech, the CNS stenographers were busy uncritically and dutifully transcribing their dear leader's words:

In contrast to all this fawning Trump sycophancy, CNS made sure to mock and discount any critic of Trump's speech. One article by Susan Jones is headlined "Rep. Hakeem Jeffries Questions If Trump Is a Crook; Rep. Speier Invokes Jekyll and Hyde"; another carries the headline "Schumer Resists: Didn't See Any Point of Agreement With Trump."

In the latter one, Jones added more of her snide parenthetical asides -- something she would never do in her Trump stenography. After quoting Sen. Chuck Schumer  pointing that putting billionaires in the government isn't exactly draining the swamp as Trump promised, Jones sneered: "Highly successful businessmen and women are not considered to be hard-working Americans in the Democrats’ playbook. Democrat references to 'working people' generally encompass lower-income, less educated and sometimes struggling Americans who may need government assistance to make ends meet."

The only critical thing CNS published about Trump's speech was a column by right-wing Catholic activist Bill Donohue complaining that Trump wasn't right-wing enough by not referencing "moral issues." How can Donohue be shocked that a thrice-married adulterer who lies pretty much all the time has little interest in discussing moral issues?

The bias at CNS could not be more clear.
