CNN loves to play the race card — so long as they can staple it to the forehead of a Republican. But when we’re talking about a Democrat, they suddenly discover ‘nuance’.
Convenient, you might say.
Normally, they bend over backward to explain why any criticism of a Democrat ‘lacks context’ or ‘leaves out important facts’ or … fill-in-the-blank.
So when they call one of their own out on the carpet — a Minority Leader of the House, no less! — for defending racism when they could easily enough just sweep it under the rug, that’s a small step in the right direction toward impartial reporting.
It’s a far cry from redemption, but still, it’s something.
Here is CNN busting Hakeem Jeffries’ chops over his weak-sauce excuse for giving his uncle’s anti-Jewish racism a pass. They got the receipts. Not only did Hakeem KNOW about his uncle’s ideas — he defended them.
