    CNN has banned all "Hillary in the bunker" stories.

    Can someone kindly explain the "Title" what does it mean? The background contexts are as follows:

    Clinton flew into an obscenity-laced temper tantrum when she realized she had lost the election to Donald Trump. She pounded on furniture, threw objects around the room.

    Re: CNN has banned all "Hillary in the bunker" stories.

    You're describing material from one of the many sources that disseminates falsehoods disguised as news. The headline suggests that the false "news" site somehow knows that CNN has stopped publishing news about Secretary Clinton that makes her look bad.

    Re: CNN has banned all "Hillary in the bunker" stories.

    The mention of 'in a bunker' is a reference to the behaviour attributed to Hitler in his bunker in Berlin.

    And have they? I can't imagine CNN publishing anti-Hillary news in the first place.

    There are plenty of reputable news sources which show political bias (unfortunately).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Indeed. I didn't want to get political, but there are videos of CNN anchors admitting they gave Clinton a "free ride".

    And we describe someone who is very defensive and thinks people are trying to attack them, especially politicians or people in power, as having a bunker mentality.
