    Surprised they didn't pull the plug on him, more pro Trump statements than this network has seen in the past 3 years in one segment.

    She did try to flip him against President Trump ... even rolled out a Hillary clip.

    Proud Syrian was having none of it though.

    yes, I'm very surprised CNN didn't just cut him off.

    Why would they, they are a legitimate news organization, they don’t have a reason to try to hide any views.

    why do they do it? ... it's what they do when they don't like what is being said.

    They usually blame it on... sorry, lost that feed, we'll try to re-establish the connection.

    Then they never get back to the person.

    And yet...it didn't happen here.

    So doesn't this completely scuttle the narrative that CNN doesn't broadcast news that "it doesn't like"?

    Not sure about this interview but I stand with Trump on this one and I've taking heat for it on Twitter. When a Government kills their people in such a heinous way we need to step up and protect them, Obama didn't do enough of this IMO.

    Ok, just looking at the first example. In many ways it cutting there makes Hilary Clinton look worse.

    See the third point on: https://www.wikihow.com/Communicate-Bad-News-Professionally

    Oh and they don't try and sugar-coat it either. They are just out and out critical.

    Looking at the second example only the black man speaks - that probably strengthens the view that Trump isn't racist.

    Not necessarily to be fair. They could do that sometimes to put people off.

    honestly, I didn't even watch it myself ... it happens so often with CNN and MSNBC, I just posted one of many examples because you asked.

    if it doesn't suit the narrative they are pushing ... the camera often fails.

    Funny thing is this is the one I don't stand with Trump on, so much so that I hope the Dems win in a landslide this fall.

    Occam's Razor suggests otherwise.
