As reported by The DailyCaller: It has been reported that the White House is furious with CNN over the network's recent news of President Joe Biden and his team.
According to Politico, the White House had a disdainful attitude toward their reporting of President Biden's speech that took place on September 1 in front of Independence Hall. In the speech, the president lambasted Republicans as a threat to American democracy. According to Politico, the administration was particularly displeased with the network's concentration on the optics of the address, most notably the blood red background.
The presenter for CNN, Brianna Keilar, expressed her disapproval of the presence of two Marines who sat in the backdrop while President Biden was speaking. She stated that the military is not supposed to be involved in politics, and that their presence at a political address would be "inappropriate." Andrew Bates, the deputy press secretary for the White House, responded to her remark by asserting that the speech in question was non-political.
Commentator Catherine Rampbell is one of the contributors and commentators for the network who has been skeptical of the president's plan to cancel student debt. Rampbell stated that the initiative is "not the wisest use of public resources."
CNN anchor Don Lemon, who has been known for a long time for his critique of former President Donald Trump, pushed White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre in June on the White House's blaming of Russian President Vladimir Putin for inflation. Lemon has been known for his criticism of Trump for a long time. He stated his opinion unequivocally that the current administration should shoulder some of the blame for the increase in pricing. In the month of August, he also engaged in a debate with the White House press secretary over the information that the administration possessed before to the raid at Mar-a-Lago.
CNN Chief Chris Licht has made it a priority to broaden the network's coverage of both political parties. Recent changes at the network include the exits of anchor Brian Stelter and White House reporter John Harwood as a result of his efforts to make those changes. A number of people voiced their disapproval against Licht over Harwood's decision to leave the company before the end of his contract.
According to a report that was published by Politico in the past, Licht had previously met with White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain in May to discuss expanding his outreach with political figures in Washington. In response to CNN anchor Poppy Harlow's question regarding whether President Joe Biden will issue an apology for his "semi-fascism" comment, Klain retweeted a post made by the co-founder of the Lincoln Project, Rick Wilson, in which Wilson declared that the "diet Fox [News] era begins."
In addition, the White House has voiced its annoyance with former Obama advisor David Axelrod's criticism of the government during an appearance on CNN. Both on the network and in op-ed writings, Axelrod has voiced his disapproval of the president's behavior during news conferences as well as several of the policies he has enacted.
According to the outlet, the Republican National Committee shared a section with anchor John Avlon in which they criticized the Democrats' approach to the problem of urban crime.
