Did someone yank a figurative leash on Alisyn Camerota this morning after she offered criticism of Adam Schiff on CNN’s New Day? Daily Caller reporter Eddie Zipperer believes so after watching this clip in which the host argues that Jerrold Nadler isn’t the only House manager offering tone-deaf arguments to Senate Republicans in the impeachment trial. Did a producer tell her to get back to criticizing Republicans, or did Camerota just suddenly change gears on her own?
Either way, the real value in this clip is the argument she made. It applies much more broadly than even Camerota spells out here with former Clinton administration official Joe Lockhart (via Twitchy):
Alisyn Camerota delivered a VERY rare criticism of Adam Schiff on CNN this morning, and I'm pretty sure a producer told her in her ear to get back to the purpose of today's show which is lobbying Lisa Murkowski.
Listen to this clip and tell me that's not what happened: pic.twitter.com/1SaGwlS59f
