2020 Resolution: Lemon Promises to ‘Fight,’ and Be More Biased?

Shortly after the United States started to ring in 2020 on Wednesday (and more than a few drinks), CNN Tonight host Don Lemon announced he had a major New Year’s resolution for the upcoming election year that he wanted people to know about: “lean in harder” and “fight.” Essentially, he was vowing to be more biased in his reporting.

The topic of resolutions was first broached by Lemon when he sloppily asked his co-host, Brooke Baldwin, “Do you have resolutions or no?” That solicited this tipsy response from his friend:

BROOKE BALDWIN: This is the first year I'm like-- I really was a resolutions person. But I really just -- I want to just -- I don't know -- be my best self, take a moment to breathe. I mean, what we do is -- what we do is a privilege, but it's also not for the faint of heart. And I just want to make sure I'm taking moments to just like breathe and meditate and be good on my body. How about you?

I'm going to lean in harder,” Lemon laughed. “I'm going to lean in harder.”

Baldwin seemed almost scared and definitely confused by Lemon’s declaration when she asked him to clarify. “I'm going to lean in harder. I'm sick of the craziness. So, you thought I was -- I went hard in 2019. Watch 2020, baby. There's more to come. I'm a soldier. I'm ready to fight,” he proclaimed.
