CNN host Kate Bolduan suffered a complete meltdown on-air when former U.S. Navy SEAL Carl Higbie questioned the panel’s use of anonymous sources in their anti-Trump narrative.“You’re basing all these allegations off of one, or maybe two, sources. Come out and name those people” Higbie said to the panel. Bolduan replied, “[w]e protect our sources. Two, it’s not just CNN. It’s Washington Post, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, ABC, NBC,” to which Higbie interjected “[w]ho are the sources? Because they’re hiding behind this anonymity.”
Bolduan then had a mini-freakout on camera, telling Higbie not to attack the “stellar reporters at CNN” — a soundbite you could see Higbie biting his tongue to avoid ridiculing.Watch the explosive exchange below:
Yes — how dare he attack their sources!The cringe-worthy reaction to Higbie from CNN’s host and panelists earned them some rightful mockery on Tucker Carlson’s show last night, and on Fox and Friends this morning.
In related news, according to anonymous sources used for this article, the anonymous sources utilized by CNN, the New York Times, Washington Post, and others are completely lacking in credibility.[Note: This post was written by Matt Palumbo.
