CNN’s biases were on full display during a recent broadcast when their anchors were left dumbfounded by a focus group of voters who didn’t show any support for US involvement in Ukraine. The group was asked if they thought America should be supporting Ukraine in their fight against Putin, and not one person raised their hand. Cue the awkward silence and shocked faces from the CNN anchors.
John King, a well-known journalist at CNN, couldn’t hide his surprise and compared the voters’ skepticism to an old Tucker Carlson show. Now, I don’t know about you, but I don’t see how that comparison is fair or accurate, considering Carlson is one of the most honest and trustworthy voices in media today.
CNN: "If you think the United States should be supporting Ukraine in the fight against Putin, raise your hand."

But instead of accepting the voters’ opinions, King tried to humanize them by saying they’re “good people” who go to church. Well, guess what? Going to church doesn’t automatically make someone wrong or ignorant. It’s just a poor attempt by CNN to undermine the valid concerns of these voters.
What’s even more telling is that King also expressed his concern about misinformation and the distrust towards mainstream media. He acknowledged that these voters believe things that would break their so-called fact-check machine and that they don’t trust CNN because they see it as part of the problem. Well, Mr. King, they’re not wrong.
It’s no wonder CNN’s ratings are plummeting when they continue to ignore the voices of everyday Americans. Instead of ridiculing and dismissing their opinions, maybe CNN should take a hard look at themselves and start questioning their own biases. But I won’t hold my breath.
