CNN and Other MSM Outlets: Forever Fake News
CNN and other left wing media have a perception problem. Not just about OUR perception of the fake news networks, but their own jaded view of the country. They are so desperate to nail President Trump for something, anything, even if it’s wrong, that they’ve made several really stupid mistakes.
Here’s a recent one: CNN placed the notation of Republican behind Northam’s name in their story on the racist picture. Gov Ralph Northam is a DEMOCRAT, not a Republican. CNN botched that one probably because they want to find something wrong with Republicans so badly that they didn’t bother to check it.
The Russian Witch Hunt
The next one was about Donald Trump Jr’s phone calls. Back in May of last year CNN and several other left wing News outlets beat the drum that Donald Trump Jr called a “blocked phone number” from Trump Tower. Their headline read: “Trump Jr. called a blocked number before and after the Trump Tower meeting. Whom did he call?”
And when Corey Lewandowski mentioned that Trump Sr had a “blocked number,” they went off on the hunt to find out who he called. They suggested that Donald Trump Jr called his father to advise him of Russian information. The Russians. The Russians. The broken record.
The report came back: the blocked numbers were NOT to Donald Trump Sr. How disappointing for the left wing news.
Donald Jr testified that he couldn’t remember who he spoke to on the blocked calls. The numbers turned out to be to Nascar CEO Brian France and businessman Howard Lorber. If it had been his dad, the left would have used it as ammunition to claim that there was “collusion.” Now they’re using another angle:
They happened the “same day” as the Russian calls. And CNN wants to know what was discussed. How about none of their business? Never give up, right? Push the narrative until you smack your head into a wall.
The “taunting a Native Veteran” scenario
Then we have Nathan Phillips, the “Vietnam Veteran” who wasn’t, and the leftists claim that the Covington Boys “taunted him.” When the truth came out that the initial video was selectively edited, CNN, celebs, and other Pundits quickly deleted their attack-tweets. The attorneys for the Covington Boys are sending letters that mention a suit for libel and defamation to the many outlets and celebrities that attacked them. The list is long, and CNN, TMZ, the New York Times and others are on it, according to Breitbart.
“Journalism now is a bunch of millennial social justice activists playing dress-up. They’re not a profession or an industry. They don’t report. They don’t know anything. And they don’t serve the public. It’s not our fault that the people they really work for, won’t pay them.” Daniel Greenfield
