Is CNN even trying to be a respectable news outlet anymore?
During a segment on CNN’s “New Day,” the hosts spent an entire segment claiming that President Donald Trump’s budget cuts are “victimizing honey bees” and ruining the overall lives of everyone on the planet.
The panel of liberal nitwits declared that spending cuts on bee research is part of the Republican war on science and could lead the world ending.
Co-host Alisyn Camerota kicked things off by lamenting that, “Honeybees are dying off at a faster rate than seen in a decade, yet the Trump Administration is cutting funds aimed at trying to save them.”
CNN correspondent Suzanne Malveaux then jumped in and warned, “farmers, scientists, environmentalists, and now even beekeepers, they are ringing the alarms saying scaling back on this critical research they depend on is gonna have a significant impact on all of us, starting with the bees.”
The segment then cut to a clip where Malveaux explained that the Trump Administration has reversed a series of Obama-era regulations when it comes to bees, including allowing 18 states to use a certain pesticide in emergency circumstances that is known to be harmful to bee colonies.
After several minutes of putting her anti-Trump spin on it, Malveaux went on to reveal the actual reason from the Department of Agriculture: “The USDA said the critical data collection suspension was temporary, saying ‘the decision to suspend data collection was not made lightly but was necessary given available fiscal and program resources.’”
After essentially destroying her own narrative, Malveaux told Camerota and co-host John Berman: “Scientists say the Trump Administration’s turn away from the bee crisis is just part of the Administration’s larger goal to cut or undermine federal research on food safety, farm productivity, and climate change.”
Ah, wouldn’t be a CNN segment without slipping in the old “climate change” doomsday warning.
CNN has been on a roll lately with embarrassing, boring, and outright false segments and stories.
Here’s a few of their greatest hits:
- CNN’s Stelter downplays Antifa beating conservative, airs edited clip
- WATCH: CNN abruptly cuts segment when Trump accuser destroys her own allegations
- PERVERT! CNN Head Zucker makes sexual joke about sleeping with network host
- CNN liberals emotional after Dem debates; ‘This is bad!’
