[See NewsBusters for more.] As they offer grudging agreement that the President has been handling more recent responses to the Coronavirus crisis well, the journalists at CNN don’t seem to quite know what to do with themselves. On Monday night, liberal host Don Lemon brought on network fact checker Daniel Dale for a response to Donald Trump. Dale offered what seems to be CNN’s version of a compliment: The President is slightly less of a liar: “Don, this was a more factual Donald Trump. That's not to say he was a factual Donald Trump, but by his standards this was an improvement. Trump has been consistently dishonest until today in talking about the coronavirus pandemic.”
