CNN Host (Sort Of) Apologizes For Downplaying Kristallnacht And Holocaust During Anti-Trump TV Segment

( CNN host Christiane Amanpour offered a half-apology on Monday after airing a disgraceful segment that downplayed the Nazi holocaust of millions of Jewish people and the Kristallnacht pogrom of 1938.

During a TV segment last week, Amanpour compared President Donald Trump’s first term in office to the Kristallnacht pogrom, that results in the murder of many Jewish people. This week, Amanpour took the time on her CNN International show to sort of apologize.

“And finally tonight, a comment on my program at the end of the last week,” Amanpour said. “I observed the 82nd anniversary of Kristallnacht, as I often do – it’s the event that began the horrors of the Holocaust.”

“I also noted President Trump’s attacks on history, facts, knowledge, and truth,” she claimed without providing any evidence of the president having done any of those things. “I should not have juxtaposed the two thoughts.”

Amanpour said that she regrets “any pain” that her statement “may have caused” and that her point “was to say how democracy can potentially slip away, and how we must always zealously guard our democratic values.”

Is that an apology? It doesn’t sound like it.

In case you missed it, Amanpour started her show last week by announcing that it was the 82nd anniversary of the 1938 pogrom, describing how the Nazis issued a “warning shot across the bow of our human civilization that led to genocide against a whole identity.”

She then went on to claim that President Trump’s first term was “four years of a modern-day assault on those same values” and that the “Biden-Harris team pledges a return to norms, including the truth.”

Is CNN a news channel or is it a propaganda network? As long as we’re making Nazi comparisons here, the Nazis were pretty talented at presenting propaganda as truth, too.

Does her apology sound heartfelt to you?
