Unsurprisingly, some Twitter users attacked Nehls’s ultimately harmless joke. But others found it hilarious, and a magnificent jab at the notoriously left-leaning news outlet.

I thought that was hilarious! Priceless!— Sandra T. (@realSandraT) January 6, 2023
This insult does have some truth in it. Over the past few years, CNN has been nothing more than just a loyal media cheerleader for the Democratic Party, parroting every leftist talking point. They have been quick to demonize Trump and conservative Republicans as “dangerous extremists”, threatening “our democracy” while ignoring the extreme leftist ideas of many in their own party. A news outlet is supposed to report on the facts of the news, allow for both sides of the story to come out, and let the audience decide for themselves what to think. Instead, CNN is relentlessly pushing left-wing propaganda down the throats of its viewers. Unless they take steps to truly become impartial and nonpartisan (unlikely, to say the least), then the claim that CNN is the “Clinton News Network” will always have some truth in it.
