Raw Story recaps:
CNN’s Chris Cuomo once again hammered a member of Congress on air for trying to dodge difficult questions. The interview was so contentious that co-host Alisyn Camerota quipped after the interview that “he’ll never be back.”
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) refused to tell whether the media fails to report acts of terrorism. Monday, President Donald Trump alleged “It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported. And in many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it. They have their reasons, and you understand that.”
The conspiracy theory first appeared on the site InfoWars, which Trump is known to support. Cuomo demanded to know if Jordan agreed with Trump’s assessment. “I’ll let you and the White House have that debate,” Jordan said.
“Oh, no, no, no, no,” Cuomo broke in. “That’s not why you were sent to Washington. This is about truth and taking care of the people, your constituency. This matters. What do you think about it?”
