Racist CNN 12 hour news blackout on Biden’s ‘you ain’t black’ comments

Disgusting! If President Trump made such statements CNN would be calling for his head! Enemy of the people!

CNN downplays Biden’s ‘you ain’t black’ comments, avoids on-air coverage throughout the day

By Fox News, May 22, 2020

CNN, which often dedicates wall-to-wall coverage for any latest controversy from President Trump, virtually avoided covering Joe Biden‘s “you ain’t black” remarks Friday morning that sparked backlash throughout the day.

The presumptive Democrat nominee sparked a firestorm on Friday during an interview with Charlamagne tha God on the radio show “The Breakfast Club” as he defended his record with the black community.

“I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden said.

Later in the afternoon, Biden walked back those remarks during a conversation with black business leaders, stopping short of a full apology.

“I’ve never ever taken the African-American community for granted, had their support … I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy. I shouldn’t have been so cavalier,” Biden later said. “I don’t take it for granted at all, and no one, no one should have to vote for any party, based on their race or religion or background.”

Still, Biden’s remarks dominated the conversation on social media with the hashtags #YouAintBlack and #JoeBidenIsARacist trending on Twitter.

Fox News and MSNBC covered the dust-up throughout the day. ABC News, CBS News and NBC News all addressed the controversy on their evening programs.

However, CNN’s lack of coverage throughout the day was called out by critics.

“Fascinating to watch how the left-leaning cable networks have covered Biden’s ‘you ain’t black’ comment. MSNBC has discussed it nearly every hour… CNN hasn’t mentioned it once,” former CNN digital producer-turned-media critic Steve Krakauer tweeted.

“It’s been over 5 HOURS since Biden told Black people they ‘ain’t black’ if they support @realDonaldTrump. How many times has CNN mentioned his bigoted comment on air? ZERO. Unreal,” McDaniel tweeted.
