Rhetorical question: if a Hillary-hating Trump supporter had shot and almost killed a Dem congressman, do you think CNN would have mentioned that fact on the one-year anniversary of the event?

But in its five-plus minute segment this morning on the first anniversary of a shooting at a Republican practice baseball game in which GOP congressman Steve Scalise was shot and almost killed, CNN failed to even name the shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, and never mentioned that he was a Trump-hating Bernie Sanders supporter.

The only reference to Hodginkson was CNN reporter Phil Mattingly speaking of a “lone gunman.”

Instead of any discussion of the shooter’s left-wing politics, the segment’s feel-good focus was on the Scalise’s slow recovery. It was, of course, good to see Scalise back on the field, though he mentioned still needing two crutches to get around.

But CNN didn’t want viewers to know that Scalise and the others had been shot by a liberal fanatic.
