CNN claims to be “the most trusted name in news,” and its tagline is “facts first.”
However, it wouldn’t take a new viewer more than a few minutes to discover the rampant bias and mistruths running wild on the supposed news network.
And now CNN’s star host is freaking out over three words key to Nancy Pelosi’s January 6 witch hunt.
Top CNN star Anderson Cooper and the rest of the channel’s hosts are throwing a temper-tantrum following orders from their new bosses barring them from using one of their favorite phrases.
Ever since the end of the 2020 campaign, CNN hosts, reporters, and contributors have used the phrase “the Big Lie,” in reference to anyone with questions about the 2020 Presidential election.
The Democrat Party mouthpieces at CNN have peddled the narrative that 2020 was “the safest and most secure election in American History.”

Watch CNN for an hour and you’ll hear hosts like Anderson Cooper using the misleading phrase like a broken record.
In fact, in the first two weeks of June alone, Post Millennial reports CNN hosts used the term, “the Big Lie,” more than 150 times.
However, after the media merger between Warner and Discovery, CNN is under new management.
And new head honcho Chris Licht has a new rule urging CNN staff not to use the phrase “the Big Lie,” on air.
Licht is rumored to want to move CNN in a more news-focused and less opinion-oriented direction.
The new Chief Executive doesn’t want his on-air “talent” using the same phrase Democrat politicians and operatives use about anyone who questions the controversial 2020 election results.
One anonymous CNN staffer attempted to downplay the new directive calling the new rule “worrisome,” in an interview with Mediate.
However, the move likely isn’t a sign of an earth-shattering shift to a new fair and balanced approach at CNN.
Licht has offered up a couple of alternatives to, “the Big Lie,” including “election lie” or “Trump’s election lie.”
Members of Trump’s team would likely argue that’s even more of an unfair characterization than those three words at the heart of Nancy Pelosi’s January 6 witch hunt.
Any of three viewers who tuned in to the Democrats’ laughable prime-time January 6 committee hearings in recent weeks may have heard Liz Chaney udder the favorite catch phrase – “the Big Lie.”
A more promising sign though, is Licht has previously announced plans to part ways with partisan program hosts who can’t adapt to the new “news first” approach.
But, so far, that appears to be nothing more than lip service, as Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, Brain Stelter, Wolf Blitzer and others all remain employed and hosting their own “newscasts.”
