Comedian Bill Burr ripped into CNN anchors during his Thursday edition of his “Bill’s Monday Morning Podcast.” This conversation over CNN is due to Burr saying that his mother-in-law, who comes over to babysit his children, puts on the network. 

“She always puts on CNN. And do you know what those f–king morons are doing? Do you know what those f–king morons are doing?! They’re f–king talking about Trump,” Burr said. 

Furthermore, the actor stated that the network secretly hoped for former President Trump to have a second term for its ratings. Burr noted that a presidency under the previous administration was best for business. 

“It’s like, do you think these people give a f–k who’s president? They want Darth Vader to come back. They want him to come back. Because they had nothing to talk about, because it’s show business, and Joe Biden is a f–king bore.” 

Burr went on to say what’s life for CNN without Trump, considering that Biden won’t bring in the ratings like the former president. 

“So now what do they do? They’re going out there, they’re doing what they did the first time to get this guy [Trump] elected by giving him all this free coverage while they act like they allegedly don’t like him. I don’t buy it. I don’t buy it. They are a corporate news channel.”

MSNBC host Ari Melber went after Fox News and its contributor Lara Trump, appearing on the network criticizing a lawsuit by the New York attorney general against her family’s company.

On Wednesday, New York AG Letitia James publicized a $250 million suit against the Trump Organization, accusing them of overinflating assets to get low-interest loans.

The MSNBC host had a guest to discuss the topic, but before he tossed it over to the attorney and former FBI agent Asha Rangappa, Melber took a shot at the network.

Melber referred to Fox News (h/t Mediaite) as a “MAGA snowflake bubble where you’re not going to be triggered. You’re not going to be pressed and shout out to anyone who needs a bubble. You know you can live in a snowflake bubble if you want.”

Neither side is immune to these types of criticisms when having people of Trump’s status where a rival network believes that the host isn’t asking the tough questions. 

Fox News has done this in the past when members of the Biden administration go on CNN or MSNBC.

On Thursday, CNN Chief International Anchor Christiane Amanpour shared details of an interview with Iranian president Ebrahim Raisi, which didn’t happen. 

Raisi insisted that Amanpour wear a hijab while conducting the interview despite the location being in New York and not Iran. Still, the CNN anchor declined the request leading to the president skipping the interview. 

Many in the news media, including “The View’s” Alyssa Farah Griffin, applauded Amanpour’s decision to walk away from the interview rather than wear a hijab. 

“Iranian President Raisi demanded @amanpour wear a headscarf for their scheduled interview,” Farah Griffin tweeted

“In a powerful display of solidarity with the women of Iran, she declined, & he refused to do the interview. Stand with the women of Iran & say her name #MahsaAmini.

This with Amanpour would have been Raisi’s first interview after protests are sweeping Iran with women burning their hijabs after the death last week of Amini, following her arrest by the “morality police.”
