WHY IS CNN SUCH A CESSPIT OF SEXISM? White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham Hits Back At CNN’s Anderson Cooper For Mocking Her.

Cooper, who portrays himself as an unbiased news anchor, repeatedly mocked Grisham, saying: “Ooh, Stephanie. You got to increase your vocabulary, I mean, your criticism. Theater now has been used twice. I mean, Grisham clearly doesn’t get to Broadway enough if she, you know, thinks those press conferences are theater.”

“I am a single mom who (proudly) holds three roles in the White House, and I am doing the very best I can,” Grisham said in response. “But I definitely don’t get to Broadway enough.”

Cooper’s segment attacking Grisham came shortly after Grisham hit CNN over the network’s extreme left-wing bias, which was further revealed this last week after James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released more undercover sting videos on CNN.

“America needs real journalism. Real journalists don’t have an agenda,” Grisham tweeted. “They gather and present the news in an unbiased manner. They report the facts – and let the citizens decide. But audio of @CNN meetings, captured by @Project_Veritas, expose a very real agenda.”

I disagree slightly with Grisham: real journalists can have an agenda — as long as they disclose it. As John Nolte wrote last week when Shepard Smith abruptly vacated Fox News:

You might not agree with, or even like, Rachel Maddow, Sean Hannity, Lawrence O’Donnell, or Tucker Carlson, but at least they have the personal integrity, professional maturity, and moral courage to say This is my opinion. This is what I believe personally. Come at me, bro. At least they have enough respect for their audience, for themselves, and for their profession not to shiver like a punk inside the armor of an Objective Journalist Just Telling the Objective Truth as a means to avoid challenge and criticism.

Fox and MSNBC are pretty open about the worldviews they represent. In contrast, as O’Keefe reported last week: Field Ops Manager At CNN: Zucker’s 9am Calls Are ‘Bulls***;’ “We’re Totally Left-Leaning…(But) We Don’t Want To Admit It.”
