Trump's repeated Twitter attacks on his own attorney general, Jeff Sessions, got CNS' attention, and it fell in line with the rest of the right-wing media to let Trump know that this was a bridge too far for them by hurling "news" articles and columns at the issue:
- Leading Conservatives Defend AG Jeff Sessions Against Trump's Attacks (written by CNS managing editor Michael W. Chapman, so you know the order to do this came from on high)
- Rep. Gowdy Gets Trump’s Frustration With Sessions; Sen. Graham Says Lay Off
- Cruz: Sessions is a ‘Strong, Conservative Attorney General’
- Firing Sessions Would Send Chilling Signal to Trump’s Supporters
- It's Wednesday: Trump Dumps on Sessions Again
- Pence Praises Sessions' 'Good Work,' But Also Defends Trump's 'Candor'
- Coons: Democrats Will Try to Block Recess Appointment If Sessions Is Fired (in which CNS seemingly finds some Democratic obstructionism it can get behind)
There's also a story about the White House press secretary being asked about "the conservatives rallying behind Sessions," and not one but two pleas from the MRC's favorite radio host-slash-business partner, Mark Levin, for Trump to leave Sessions alone.
Why, it's almost as if CNS has a highly partisan editorial agenda dictated from outside the organization that has nothing to do with actual news and everything to do with advancing its right-wing ideology.
UPDATE: So committed to defending Sessions is CNS that editor in chief Terry Jeffrey penned an entire column on it, asserting that "American [sic] needs an honorable person leading the Justice Department, which is why Attorney General Sessions needs to stay."
