Isn’t it adorable when one traditional media outlet smooches the backside of another? Like this puff piece The Hill wrote about Chris Cuomo being all big and bad by naming the GOP lawmakers who didn’t want to come on CNN after the shooting.
Because who doesn’t want to sit on a show with a guy shaming them for a mass shooting they had nothing to do with?

He’s so tough, in fact, that he was bragging about how he called these GOP lawmakers out by name on Twitter, but he failed to tag them, which makes his tweet about Cruz a subtweet. Which also makes Cuomo a coward when he’s not just preaching to his choir.
If Cruz thinks gun control improvement is not the answer, what is? Ask the question, Senator: what are we going to do to stop school shootings? Don’t just say what won’t work, work to find an answer! https://t.co/NAmAQOTudu

Notice he’s asking Cruz these things without actually tagging him.
Seems Cruz saw his tweet anyway:
That's funny, I spoke to CNN for 15 mins yesterday about proactive solutions to prevent gun violence (like passing the Grassley-Cruz bill—which Dems filibustered—that would add $300 million for school safety) yet CNN has aired NONE of it. Why not air the (entire) interview? https://t.co/c4GZcqTbs7

We know the answer. They don’t want actual safety. That isn’t their agenda. Removing the 2nd amendment is.

It’s not really about saving kids, if it was they’d defund Planned Parenthood. Nope, it’s about having some issue to run on in the fall because they know otherwise their platform is a big ol’ stinker. Sure, run on the fact you voted against tax cuts that are putting millions of dollars back into the pockets of Americans.
See how that works out for you.
They NEED this gun issue.
CNN would ruin their representation if they actually told the whole truth and played the entire interview.

CNN can’t tell an apple from a banana.
CNN always slants news to fit their agenda. They don't even try to hide it anymore!
