In an interview with local radio in New York to promote her new book “Amanda Wakes Up,” CNN “New Day” host Alisyn Camerota admitted that even she gets “Russia fatigue” with the network’s around-the-clock coverage on the issue that has led many inside and outside the media to criticize CNN for an anti-Trump agenda.
Camerota was on with “Bernie & Sid” on WABC, who asked about the Russian collusion narrative which has so far yielded no evidence of actual collusion.
“I hear you — I hear your Russia fatigue and I share it,” she said. “You know, there are many mornings I come in and pray for other news to eclipse any sort of Russia thread.”
A recent Media Research Study found that the Russia-Trump narrative made up 93 percent of “New Day’s” air time one day this week.
“Part of what’s in the book, as you’ll see when you read it is there are always ethical dilemmas that journalists face,” she continued. “Every day we are making decisions about ‘What are we going to lead with?’ ‘What are we going to leave out?’ All of that stuff.”
“By the time I plug in, there is already a direction of the show,” she added. “However, I am free at any time to say to my executive producer, which I do pretty regularly, ‘Hey, I don’t want to do this in this segment, I want to do this, and then it’s a debate. And sometimes I win that debate … there’s always a debate.”
