Recently released time-lapse footage shows CNN intentionally skipping Sen. Lindsey Graham’s opening statement on FISA abuse; coverage carried by other major news networks for the entire 45-minutes.
“Media bias is not only how something is covered, it’s what they cover. This is what bias at CNN looks like,” posted GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.
Media bias is not only how something is covered – it's what they don't cover.

CNN found itself in hot-water Wednesday after the network failed to air Sen. Lindsey Graham’s opening statement at the Judiciary Committee; ignoring the lawmaker’s powerful remarks on the FBI’s botched Russia probe.
“CNN was alone among the three major cable news networks in deciding not to televise Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., deliver his opening statement on Wednesday prior to Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s hotly-anticipated testimony,” reports Fox News.
Any reason why you won't air the hearing on the bombshell IG Report?
Does it not fit your narrative?#FakeNews

“Graham’s powerful remarks included examples of bias against President Trump and other Republicans from top FBI officials and criticism of media coverage that dismissed the FISA report as concluding the FBI made errors at a low level,” adds Fox.
“The first thing I want you to know is how the cake is baked here and my goal is to make sure … you look at this as more than a few irregularities, because if this becomes a few irregularities in America, then God help us all,” Graham said.
CNN has so-far not responded to the incident.
