What happened on Tuesday isn’t going to do anything to help CNN shed the “Clinton News Network” moniker.
As reporter Brianna Keilar was appearing live from Hillary’s speech in Springfield, Illinois — and critiquing her record — the feed was mysteriously lost.
“Largely Hillary Clinton’s comments here today, John, were based around the recent violence that we have seen,” Keilar reported.
“The police-involved shootings of black men in Minnesota, in Louisiana, and the killing of white police officers by a black gunman in Dallas. That was really what she based her comments on around today.
“And remember Hillary Clinton has some vulnerabilities herself.
“Even as she calls for criminal justice reform because of her support in the 1990s for anti-crime legislation that ultimately helped contribute to this era of mass incarceration that she now speaks out again–,” Keilar was saying.
The screen suddenly went black with only the graphics — referring to Donald Trump as “dangerous” — remaining.
“We just lost Brianna Keilar who was in Springfield, Illinois where Hillary Clinton just spoke,” anchor John Berman said, before moving on.
