Remember when Chris Cillizza swore CNN doesn’t pick sides when it comes to politics?
Because gosh, golly, and gee, it sure as heck looks like CNN is picking a side if we take their chyron to heart.
CNN's New Day BREAKING NEWS Chyron: 'Biden to Eviscerate Trump Today in Iowa Speech' https://t.co/iBWISDQRLm

‘Biden to eviscerate Trump.’
It’s almost like CNN is trying to write like Twitchy.
Well, that and come on, a supposed news outlet reporting Biden eviscerating the president in a speech like it’s actual news?
CNN’s New Day previewed an advance copy of a stump speech that Joe Biden plans to give during a campaign visit today in Iowa later on Tuesday, and according to the on-screen chyron, the former Vice President will “eviscerate” President Donald Trump.
While “eviscerate” is a common term used for hyperbolic headlines, according to Dicitonary.com this word is defined “to move entrails from; disembowel.” Let’s just say that if Biden truly plans to disembowel President Trump during his speech, the Secret Service should be alerted.
HA HA HA HA
Ok, not bad, Mediaite.
I have a feeling CNN doesn’t know what eviscerate means. pic.twitter.com/tlTxSkoMnc

Biden is going to disembowel Trump?
Sounds a teensy bit extreme to this editor.

Captain Obvious. The chyron should read: Biden to Make Speech Without Using Word “Folks.” Now THAT’S Breaking News.

Biden manages NOT to say something completely offensive to one group of people and keeps his hands off of others … THAT would be breaking news.
To all 25 people who show up

This is definitely an objective, non-partisan news outlet.

Totally and completely objective.
It's CNN's new transparency initiative: super biased and just darn proud of it.

We all know it, they might as well own it.
