[See NewsBusters for more.] What should be the focus of coverage when three United States prisoners are freed from North Korea? If you’re the journalists at CNN overnight, you make sure to mention the Robert Mueller investigation, Stormy Daniels and to worry about Donald Trump getting credit for these Americans returning. At 2:56 AM ET, CNN brought on Philip Yun, who was an adviser for Bill Clinton, to whine about Trump being there to greet the returning American prisoners: “Well, this is Donald Trump as a... TV moment for him. If nothing else, he knows how to get publicity, how to a bleed a lot of drama.”
