Cable News Coverage of Biden Inauguration Ran the Gambit

Coverage of President Joe Biden’s big day came with little to no scrutiny on the left-leaning networks.

The tone of cable news coverage during Inauguration Day depended entirely on who you voted for. Anchors at CNN and MSNBC offered dismal and sarcastic opinions about President Trump’s four-year term while reporters at Fox News, One America News Network (OANN) and Newsmax offered a less critical analysis of the 45th President.

OANN, the nation’s most friendly Trump network, covered the president’s final White House goodbye with pre-taped video packages and in-depth analysis. The network also produced a 48-minute video for its website called “Trump – Legacy of a Patriot.”

Fox News Described Trump as a hard-working man while host Dana Perino repeatedly and delicately referred to him as a “disruptor.” Anchor Martha MacCallum claimed Trump has “worked hard in the past 48 hours to finish this on a more gracious note.”

CNN sent reporter Jim Acosta to cover Trump’s departure at Joint Base Andrews. Acosta, who worked in the White House for the last four years and had several run-ins with Trump, called him an “autocrat” as his plane was headed towards Florida.

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer called the turn-out for Trump’s farewell “pathetic” piggybacking off of the seeming disgust that Acosta was reporting with.

“He looks small,” CNN anchor Dana Bash opined as the defeated 45th president and his unpopular first lady, Melania, made their way across the South Lawn to Marine One. “He just looks like a small man.”

Coverage of President Joe Biden’s big day came with little to no scrutiny on the left-leaning networks. CNN and MSNBC seemed to ignore the fact that Biden signed 17 executive orders erasing key aspects of Donald Trump’s presidency.

Jim Cramer: I Don’t Know How Elon Musk Gets Out of Not Buying Twitter

Cramer stated on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street” that Musk is “stuck” buying Twitter and won’t be able to get out of his agreement.

Twitter will push to enforce a merger agreement that would force Elon Musk to purchase the social media company for $44-billion. The Tesla CEO recently said a deal could not move forward without “proof” of a fake account estimate.  

While Musk prepares to fight this, CNBC host Jim Cramer stated on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street” that the entrepreneur is “stuck” and won’t be able to get out of his agreement. 

“Elon Musk had a lot of time at the company, spent three days here apparently looking at things. There is a clause called specific performance where they can force him to take it. And I don’t know how he gets out of it. I don’t know how he does not buy it. I mean, how they can’t force it,” Cramer said, per Mediaite.

Cramer added that unless Musk discloses “out-and-out fraud,” the company can enforce the deal. Also, the host also went on Twitter to further emphasize that he cannot see how the Telse CEO gets out of this agreement. 

“I guess maybe they can renegotiate something, but that’s the contract’s $54.20. And he agreed to that. And unless you’re some sort of out-and-out fraud, which no one has found, my understanding,” Cramer said.

“No fraud found. He owns it. He owns it. And he’s got to point to some fraud, some material adverse change, even in the period since he signed, of which there isn’t any. And I think he’s stuck! I think he’s hung! I don’t know. He, he’s, some of the tweets are at odd hours. I don’t know if you’ve noticed.”

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) responded to Tucker Carlson, who called the politician “eyepatch McCain” during a conversation about foreign policy. Crenshaw called the Fox News host “juvenile” for his remarks.

Crenshaw had previously conveyed to Fox News host Trey Gowdy that people who do not back sending $40 billion to Ukraine for their war are “pro-Russia.” As a result, Carlson went after the representative.

“Why is Congress so focused on Ukraine, but you can’t find baby formula?” Carlson said. “According to congressman Dan Crenshaw of Texas, asking questions like that, or really any questions at all, thinking you are a citizen, makes you’ pro-Russia.’”

“You know, the more I think about it, it takes a lot of gall for or eyepatch McCain to attack moms who are worried about baby formula as pro-Russia.”

Crenshaw spoke with The Daily Caller, responding to the remarks by the host, who was a co-founder of the outlet. 

“You hurl juvenile insults when you know you’ve lost the debate,” Crenshaw said. “I stand by every word I said in my interview with Trey Gowdy.”
