Independent Presidential Candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has criticized CNN for its portrayal of his comments on the potential threats that President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump pose to democracy.

In a discussion on Erin Burnett’s CNN show, Kennedy expressed his viewpoint that “President Biden is a much worse threat to democracy” and emphasized that Biden is “the first president in history that has used the federal agencies to censor political speech.” This statement quickly spread across various media channels and social networks, igniting a mix of reactions

During an interview on NewsNation, Kennedy said, “I’m very grateful, by the way, to Erin Burnett. As you know, CNN has not let me on for a live interview in a decade. And she did that — she was very, very courageous. She gave me a very fair interview; I was really dumbfounded about how fair it was. She pushed back on me a lot, and she doesn’t agree with me obviously on stuff, but she actually let me speak, which was — I’m grateful for it. When CNN Digital got it, they cut my quote so it looked like I was making this definitive statement that Biden was more of a threat to democracy than Trump. But of course, I never said that. But that’s the way it made me look crazy to liberals.”

Kennedy told NewsNation anchor Chris Cuomo, “What I said was that I can make this argument, and I didn’t say definitively whether I believed one or the other was more dangerous to democracy. I did say that I don’t believe either of them are gonna destroy democracy.”
