“Facts First” unless it hurts the person we want to be president. A sweater statement on CNN is showing just how tone-deaf and hypocritical the “Facts First” network has become during the Donald Trump presidency. On Thursday, CNN anchor Kate Bolduan appeared on air wearing a sweater with the phrase “Facts First” embroidered in pink cursive across the chest.
The ill-timed fashion statement comes as CNN has been exposed for avoiding any coverage of the investigation into Hunter Biden in the weeks leading up to the Nov. 3 election. A Project Veritas leaked conference call confirmed CNN had no interest in covering the story at the time. CNN Political Director David Chalian can be heard on the call from Oct. 14 saying, “Obviously, we’re not going with the New York Post story right now on Hunter Biden.”
CNN also peddled the Russian collusion conspiracy for years and the network has shown repeatedly that harming Republicans and protecting Democrats is much more important than “Facts First” in its reporting.
As for the “Facts First” sweater, here are the “Facts” on that. The sweater is made by high-end fashion line Lingua Franca and costs $380 on its website. For each of the cashmere sweaters sold, $100 will be donated to the Committee to Protect Journalists.
