It must be interesting to be an editor at CNN — “We are real news, Mr. President.” Either you sit around brainstorming how you can carry water for the Biden administration or an intrepid young reporter suggests an idea. Who came up with this hot take, and which editor assigned a reporter to it?


The fate of President Joe Biden’s unconstitutional debt relief program relies on the Supreme Court.

You know whoever wrote that tweet also opposes school vouchers so that poor kids are kept in failing schools.

Oops, sorry, it’s not a news report — it’s an analysis by Devan Cole. Stand up and take a bow:

Devan Cole is a CNN Politics reporter covering breaking news in Washington, DC.

Cole was previously a news associate in CNN’s Washington bureau where he assisted the assignment and live desk. Prior to that, he held news internships at both CNN and the BBC.

A native of Grand Rapids, Michigan, Cole graduated from The George Washington University with a degree in Journalism and Mass Communication.

All right, Cole, wow us with that bachelor’s degree in journalism:

When the Biden administration goes before the Supreme Court Tuesday to defend the program, which would offer up to $20,000 of federal student debt forgiveness to millions of qualified borrowers, they’ll be making their arguments to a small group of jurists who are far from being representative of the borrowers that could benefit from the relief.

Some of the justices had financial assistance to help them attend school: Thomas received a scholarship from Holy Cross College to pay for his undergraduate degree there, while Sotomayor attended Princeton University and Yale Law School on scholarships. And they have come from different backgrounds with different politics. Thomas, for instance, grew up in poverty in Pin Point, Georgia, and is the court’s leading conservative justice.

“I think it’s fair to say that (the justices) didn’t live the experiences of the people that benefit from the president’s debt relief program. And it’s important for them to go into this case understanding the limits of their own life experience and how that might affect their ability to be impartial considering case,” said Mike Pierce, executive director of the Student Borrower Protection Center, which urged the justices to uphold the relief program in a friend-of-the-court brief.

We guess Cole couldn’t find an “expert” who opposes student debt cancellation to include in his analysis.

And we still don’t get it.

Literally, yes.

It’s not an article, it’s an “analysis.”
