Jeff Greenfield's Words on Today's Political Coverages
Jeff took out all the kept in opinions while calling out CNN's Anti-Trump Panels on Brian Stelter's Show on 30 September 2018. He didn't hesitate to mention his thought on the network's political coverage showcasing more punditry and less reporting.
While stating his skepticism for almost everything he hears, Jeff tackled the topic of Judge Brett Kavanaugh facing sexual assault allegations. While the topic was revolving around the potential scope of an FBI inquest into the case, things soon delved into the journalistic ethics.
Jeff also admitted that he didn't find it surprising in his view that a considerable percentage of the press thought of itself as a type of resistance while he referenced opposition to Donald Trump's presidential administration. He hinted on speaking the truth while correcting Donald Trump's statements.
Without sparing any criticism of CNN, Jeff bluntly said that every time he looked at the network, he only saw panels instead of reporting and exchanging views. And he didn't step back to mention about the majority of the network was hostile and critical to Trump in some way.
For the matter of Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation, Jeff suggested that Brian Stelter's network had initially sided with the judge's opponents and that many of its people had already taken a stand about the nomination.
