On Monday night’s Colbert, CNN morning show co-host Don Lemon shared an interesting take on his network’s political leanings —he says CNN has never had a liberal bias.
“I don’t think we ever were liberal,” Lemon told Colbert.
“What?” Colbert shockingly reacted. “That’s not me saying that, that’s the people out there saying he’s not letting you be liberal anymore.”
“Well listen, I think what Chris is saying is that he wants Republicans – sensible Republicans, he wants us to hold people to account, but he wants people to come on and feel comfortable with coming on and talking on CNN and appearing on CNN,” Lemon said. “So if you invite someone to your house, you want to make them comfortable but also by the nature of what we do, we have to hold people to account.”
