It’s Wednesday, December 6, 2017, and this is Today in Media.


CNN had a rough day in our countdown of the five most ridiculous media takes, as the network was featured twice in the lineup. First, Van Jones worried that President Donald Trump might pull a Game of Thrones-style murder scene on CNN. Then, CNN completely forgot to cover former Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown being sentenced to five years in a federal prison for tax fraud.

Meanwhile, The Hill claimed for two hours that Democratic Michigan Rep. John Conyers, who is accused of sexual harassment, is a Republican.

Then, we’re hitting on one of the most absurd things we’ve ever featured on the show. A writer for The Guardian compared something President Donald Trump did to the September 11, 2001 terror attacks — and you won’t believe what it is.

Make sure you check out the video above to see the other ridiculous things the media has done since our last episode.
