Samantha Bee praises CNN for serving public interest for a day

Samantha Bee celebrated CNN on Wednesday’s Full Frontal for practicing a bit of journalistic integrity this week. “First, after briefly banning Kellyanne Conway for being a flaxen-haired fountain of lies, CNN let her back through the gates, straight into Jake Tapper’s cage, and they haven’t fed him this week,” said Bee, showing clips of Tapper grilling Conway on the Trump team’s false news accusations. “Damn, Jake. Wow. I didn’t think CNN let you use the f-word on the air.”

Bee also praised the news outlet for holding a debate on American healthcare between Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz, or as she calls them, “the socialist and the Slytherin.”

“This event that we expected to be a pointless train wreck actually ended up being a semi-thoughtful debate on the merits and flaws of America’s healthcare system,” she explained. “I can honestly say, I’d give my left tit to have either one of you wonderful mansplaining pricks in the White House right now.”

“We were watching CNN,” Bee admitted. “And not just in an airport with the sound off. We saw you serve the public interest for almost half a day.”
