Samantha Bee Compares CNN To A 'S**tty Boyfriend'

Ouch.

Samantha Bee issued a scathing critique of CNN Saturday during her TBS special, “Not the White House Correspondents Dinner.”

Bee aired clips of CNN’s on-air personalities, from the left-leaning Van Jones to the Trump-supporting Jeffrey Lord, clashing in political debates. In some of the clips, the fights became so heated that it was difficult to hear what anyone was actually saying.

Then, she aired a clip of CNN President Jeff Zucker discussing the network’s punditry, saying, “You can call it entertainment. You can call it a reality show. But there was news in it almost every time.”

“Almost every time?” Bee said. “CNN gives you news like your shitty boyfriend gives your orgasms. Either way, you wind up lying in the wet spot and he’s snoring.”

Instead of keeping the journalists in the studio to argue, Bee suggested Zucker let them go out and report the news.
