CNN's Alisyn Camerota got steamrolled by a panel of 6 people brought on to discuss Trump's reaction to the Charlottesville tragedy. You could tell the panel segment wasn't going to play out the way Camerota envisioned it from the very start when she asked who was "troubled" by the President's response to the violence in Charlottesville and precisely no one raised their hand. Meanwhile one panelist gave this response regarding Trump's controversial "blame on both sides" comment:
“I didn’t see anything wrong with it. I mean he addressed the problem. Let’s face reality, there are problems on both sides."
“I think it’s ridiculous to have me choose between Hitler and Stalin which is what I consider both groups are."
"The Antifa group to me is totally a very Stalin-ish kind of group. If you’re willing to set fires and burn places to the ground, that doesn’t seem like a very peaceful group to me.”
Asked to comment on whether there were "very fine people" protesting in Charlottesville, Camerota once again got a surprising response from panelist Daphne Goggins:
"It hasn't been investigated so we don't really know who was out there. But I'm telling you, I've seen videos of other people who were out there who were not neo-Nazis."
Finally, panelist Robert McCarthy commented on the media's blatant unwillingness to cover the Antifa counter-protests in which people showed up with "helmets, body armor and clubs...ready to do battle."
"That's the night before the clash happened. The Antifa people didn't show up Friday night, they showed up Saturday. They came there to do battle. They showed up with helmets, body armor, clubs... They showed up with ballons filled with urine."
"The media is not covering it. They're only focused on making neo-Nazis and white supremacists out to be Trump supporters."
"He said there was trouble on both sides. Was there not trouble on both sides? I saw bats on both sides."

Why do we suspect that whoever screens the panelists at CNN is about to find himself unemployed? How is CNN supposed to advance the "Trump's base is turning on him" narrative if panels are being filled with people like this?
