Vice President Mike Pence is taking a page from President Trump’s playbook, as he takes aim at CNN, the very fake news network, whose only goal appears to be harming President Trump’s chances of reelection in November.
According to a report from CNN, Vice President Pence, who’s heading up the coronavirus task force team, has prohibited members of his team from appearing on CNN.
The Hill explains – The contention appears to stem from CNN not carrying portions of the daily White House coronavirus task force briefings, including some question and answer sessions with top medical members including Anthony Fauci, an epidemiologist and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and Deborah Birx, a physician coordinating the White House response to the virus.
“When you guys cover the briefings with the health officials then you can expect them back on your air,” a Pence spokesperson told CNN.
As President Trump’s approval ratings continue to climb during the coronavirus pandemic, far-left networks like CNN began discussions about refusing to air his daily coronavirus press briefings. CNN, the very low-ratings network could’ve used the boost in ratings that other networks are getting during Trump’s daily press briefings, but CNN’s obsession with harming Trump is apparently stronger than their desire to attract more viewers.
CNN’s Jim Acosta is a perfect example of the disrespectful way in which the fake news cable network has represented itself throughout the coronavirus press briefings. During one of the daily Coronavirus Task Force press conferences last week, Acosta tried to interrupt. Dr. Deborah Birx, who was mid-sentence when he jumped in (watch below).

Democrat Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley took a swipe at Acosta for his rude interruption in a brutal tweet last week:
Jim Acosta’s interruption of Dr. Birx is an example of how CNN’s echo-journalism model is destroying the media’s credibility. Every question from Acosta is an effort to score points rather than elicit information. It is a press pandemic that continues to rage without relief.
