Consumed: CNN New Day Spends 93% of Airtime on Russia

CNN spens 93 percent of its time talking about Trump and Russia. Obsession? Definitely, not journalism
Consumed: CNN New Day Spends 93% of Airtime on Russia

As CNN continues their crusade to bring down the Trump presidency, New Day spent 93 percent of their three-hour program Wednesday covering Donald Trump Jr. and the Trump campaign’s supposed collusion with Russia. The other seven percent was spent on baseball (~1.5%) and negative coverage of the GOP’s healthcare bill (~5.5%). 

No one is arguing that this revelation should not be covered, but when you spend 93 percent of your time talking about it, it shows an obsession, not an objective news judgment. The same liberal media spent virtually no time seriously covering the supposed collusion between Bill Clinton and the Red Chinese in Clinton’s ’96 re-election bid. They ignored the potentially corrupt behavior by the Clinton Foundation for years. Yet, when there is even a sniff of scandal surrounding a Republican, they pounce with hysterical outrage.

Here is the actual time allocation, after commercials are excluded:

2 Hours 15 Minutes 46 Seconds on Russia

7 Minutes 45 Seconds on GOP Health Care

2 Minutes 20 Seconds on Sports

Additionally, CNN Newsroom the following hour (9 AM) spent 100 percent of the airtime they had prior to their coverage of Christopher Wray’s confirmation hearing on the Russia story (31 min 43 sec).
