A top CNN reporter admitted on Sunday that American’s do not care about the left-leaning network’s seemingly 24/7 negative coverage of the Trump-Russia investigation.
The surprising confession on CNN’s “Inside Politics” was made by CNN national political reporter Maeve Reston who said that voters do not care about the investigation because it does not really affect them and the one issue that voters do care about — the economy — is strong.
“You are starting to see that uneasiness about the economy sort of dissipate,” Reston said. “Remember, even in 2016 when we went out to these swing states and talked to voters, there was still this fear that things were suddenly going to turn down again. You don’t feel that as much anymore.”
“I’m so interested to see how the Russia investigation affects things because so far, out in these districts when you talk to people about Russia, and that’s all we talk about at CNN basically, they say they don’t care,” Reston continued. “It doesn’t have any effect on their lives.”
