CNN’s Don Lemon defends media bias: ‘If we don’t we are not doing our jobs’

Breaking News

Last month, CNN’s new chairman and CEO Chris Licht said he wanted to see less partisan opinion and more objective journalism from show hosts in an effort to jumpstart the failing cable news network.

But CNN primetime anchor Don Lemon said he just wouldn’t be doing his job if he treated Democrats and Republicans the same, after all, the GOP is really “very dangerous.”

“Speaking very soberly about the realities of America and American politics right now — we sit around and we talk about these things and we want to give this false equivalence to Democrats and Republicans. That is not where we are right now. Republicans are doing something that is very dangerous to our society and we have to acknowledge that. We have to acknowledge that as Americans. We must acknowledge that as journalists because if we don’t we are not doing our jobs,” Lemon told “New Day” hosts John Berman and Brianna Keilar.
