Whoa.

Is Don Lemon aware of what he just did here? In a podcast with National Review’s Jamie Weinstein, the CNN anchor admitted that pro-Trump pundits he has on his show regularly lie to viewers and he’s OK with it:

CNN political commentator Tara Setmayer went on to back Lemon up and confirm that people at CNN are aware that the network puts people on air that aren’t telling the truth:

Lemon won’t name names, but he just tainted every single one of the conservatives/Republicans/Trump supporters he brings on.

For example, is former Trump campaign communications director Jason Miller lying?

What about former Ted Cruz campaign communications director Alice Stewart?

Or former Trump adviser Steve Cortes?

Now, we’re not naïve enough to think this isn’t happening on every cable panel, but it’s CNN who is going after everyone else for apples and bananas. We know that if a Fox New or MSNBC host made this claim, CNN’s media guy Brian Stelter would be all over it.

Another tidbit from the interview, Lemon claimed that he invented the “modern cable news panel” with his moronic coverage of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370:

And Lemon thinks this a good thing?
