In shades of Mao and Stalin, CNN cheers itself on the air for giving free advocacy to presumptive Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton. 'We couldn't help her any more than we have,' said Chris Cuomo

CNN cheered itself on the air on June 9, 2014 for trying to effect the outcome of a US presidential election in favor of  presumptive Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton, providing millions of dollars of free advocacy. 

6/9/2014, "CNN's Chris Cuomo: The media's been giving Hillary a "free ride,"" MediaIte, Josh Feldman

"CNN anchor Chris Cuomo made an aside at the end of a segment about Hillary Clinton this morning, remarking that the media has been pumping up her campaign and giving her a “free ride” so far. Clinton will almost definitely run for president in 2016, and she has a lot of interviews lined up for this week....

Cuomo then observed, “We couldn’t help her any more than we have. She’s got just a free ride so far from the media! We’re the biggest ones promoting her campaign, so it better happen.”"

CNN Admits to Being "the Biggest Ones Promoting" Hillary Clinton's Campaign," You Tube

Text from You Tube page ("show more") about 6/9/2014 CNN statements and their claim that they did nothing wrong:

8/4/2016, "CNN Admits to Being "the Biggest Ones Promoting" Hillary Clinton's Campaign," poster on You tube page 

"CNN anchors, Chris Cuomo and Brooke Baldwin, were discussing the possibility of Hillary Clinton entering the 2016 presidential race. The video begins with Mr. Cuomo explaining how Mrs. Clinton's refusal to publicly announce her run for the highest office in the land was hurting other potential Democrat candidates due to wealthy donors withholding their money while waiting for her announcement. It is at this moment Mr. Cuomo makes a highly controversial statement:...

"We couldn't help her anymore than we have. You know, she's just got a free ride so far from the media and we're the biggest ones promoting her campaign."

When asked for a response to this video, Chris Cuomo tweeted, "look at the date (6/9/2014) and see it for what it IS. WHEN SHE WAS ABT TO ANNOUNCE!! MEDIA WAS HYPING HER AND TRUMP.""

[Fact check: False, Trump didn't announce until June 2015, one year after this CNN video--he wasn't even on the horizon in June 2014. It was Jeb Bush and a few others. CNN says, "look at the date," it's OK because we were hyping "both" Hillary and Trump. (Obviously false).]

(You Tube continuing): "This news segment occurred prior to Hillary Clinton announcing her candidacy in April 2015. Donald Trump did not announce that he was running for President until June 2015. Mr. Trump was not anywhere on the political radar before he made his announcement. Additionally, most political pundits and news organizations, including CNN, did not take his candidacy seriously in the beginning, believing that his campaign would not last through the fall of 2015."...
