DELUSIONAL DON: Lemon Makes Outrageous Claim About CNN’s ‘Bias’


While it has become increasingly difficult to take cable news hosts seriously these days, it has become far simpler to see through their nonsense as well.  They’ve lived lives in a world that feel beyond reproach for them, and so they’ve become prone to uttering absolute madness with no real consequences.

This has put a great many of these pundits out into the pastures of abject fantasy.  They’ve become so accustomed to making things up that they can no longer help themselves.

Take CNN’s Don Lemon, for example, who this week appeared to be in abject denial of his employer’s incredibly obvious liberal bias.

On Monday, “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert asked Lemon about Licht, who previously served as the executive producer of the CBS late-night program before being tapped as CNN’s CEO following the ousting of Jeff Zucker earlier this year.

“Word on the street is that you guys aren’t allowed to be liberal anymore. Is that the case?” Colbert asked.

“I don’t think we ever were liberal,” Lemon responded.

The statement caught Colbert off-guard.

“What?” Colbert shockingly reacted. “That’s not me saying that, that’s the people out there saying he’s not letting you be liberal anymore.”

“Well listen, I think what Chris is saying is that he wants Republicans – sensible Republicans, he wants us to hold people to account, but he wants people to come on and feel comfortable with coming on and talking on CNN and appearing on CNN,” Lemon said. “So if you invite someone to your house, you want to make them comfortable but also by the nature of what we do, we have to hold people to account.”

Lemon appears to be assimilating into the role of consummate company man of late, after having been demoted from a prime-time program of his own to being the token male host on CNN’s new morning show.
