Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit – Day 3 CNN political commentator Mary Katharine Ham slammed her own network on Friday over the way that it covers certain topics while apparently ignoring others.
The drama started over remarks that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) made this week about how the media covered the events of January 6 this year, saying, “This is their Christmas: January 6. They are going to take this and milk this for anything they can to be able to smear anyone who ever supported Donald Trump.”
“I just look back and compare when I was in Congress. One event that we faced was the attempted assassination of Republican members of Congress on the baseball game. I actually was on the field,” DeSantis continued. “If you do not have the Capitol Police there, you probably would have a dozen people assassinated. That was like a one-day, two-day story. That was not something that the Capitol-based press wanted to talk about. Why? Because it totally undercut their preferred narratives.”
