First off, here is an example of “Fake News” in it’s simplest slithering form. When a fabricated or unsubstantiated notion or accusation or negative impression is laden within the question asked, it is “FAKE NEWS”. Simple as that.
Maria Cardona asked Anthony Scaramucci a seemingly very basic question about President Trump tweeting. But the manner in which she asked gave a clear impression that she was making the statement “Donald Trump is not at work being President” or “Donald Trump seems to be wasting his time and doesn’t take the role of the presidency serious” or “apparently Donald Trump doesn’t care about the people because no one as important as a President of the United States should consider it important or be able to find the time, the three seconds out of his day, to express a 140 character sentence on his cell phone. “Clearly he is a terrible president and must be impeached.
CNN asks hundreds of questions in this manner every day to every guest on their network where the answer is LESS important than the question. When CNN correspondents and commentators are given their “Destroy Trump” marching orders, every question needs to be loaded with lies, distortions of truth and misinformation designed to shape the opinion against Trump in a negative way.
A CNN reporter asked Sean Spicer, regarding sharing ‘sensitive” information with a Russian official:
“Do you think a public official has a right, at any time, to lie to the American public under any circumstance?”
Of course the reporter purposely insinuated President Trump lied to the American people. McMaster said in a statement on Monday that reports about Trump leaking classified information to the Russians was false. National Security Adviser H.R. said in a statement on Monday that reports about Trump leaking classified information to the Russians was categorically false. Of course now we know he NEVER shared anything information in the meeting the reporter referred to with any Russian official that was be deemed highly classified. So here you have a CNN reporter accusing President Trump of lying and colluding with the Russians which for 9 month has never been proven. NO evidence has ever been produced. At some point you can bet that because the First Lady, Melania Trump is a Russian spy, after all, she IS from the former Yugoslavia… not from from Russia!
CNN’s John King took another jab at rival Fox News on Monday, stating the network doesn’t ask tough questions of the president. But CNN’s rating, after a small bump up is now the lowest ratings of all cable news networks, just below Nick at Night.
On June 23, King referred to Fox’s morning program as “state TV” as he accused co-host Ainsley Earhardt of asking President Trump soft questions in an interview. CNN’s business model during 8 years of Obama was based on nothing but SOFTBALLS when it came time to interview Obama. CNN was so embarrassingly easy going on Obama, you would have thought Obama was a revered Messiah on the presence of ANY CNN anchor.
CNN president Jeff Zucker has also referred to Fox News as “state TV” in recent months.
“So look, there’s three cable news networks,” Zucker told New York magazine in April “Certainly in prime-time and in the morning, Fox is state-run TV and is extolling the line out of the White House. MSNBC has become the opposition. And I think CNN is seeking the truth.”
The undercover video, which arrived after three CNN journalists resigned (were fired” over a retracted Russia story, is from conservative provocateur James O’Keefe.
The three CNN staffers were fired following the removal of a reported article about a supposed congressional investigation into a Russian investment fund and a financier with ties to President Trump’s administration. More lies propagated by CNN.
On Tuesday, CNN was hit with this undercover video by the government watchdog group Project Veritas, that shows a CNN producer critiquing the network’s fraudulent coverage of purported collusion between Russia and the Trump administration. 9 months into the accusations not one investigative committee of official has a shred of evidence to support the charge. But CNN wont give up. If they can not find it, they will CREATE it… that is what CNN’s CEO Jeff Zucker, who has a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, has instructed his people at CNN to do.
In the undercover video that lasts nearly 9 minutes, an unidentified Project Veritas associate chats with John Bonifield, a supervising producer in the CNN Medical Unit. In the video you can hear Bonifield express the opinion that CNN is covering the Russia story primarily out of a desire to increase ratings and make more money. But ultimately, they hate President Trump, and will stop at nothing to continue to try and DE-legitimize his presidency.
Bonifield was asked if the network’s coverage of Russia is “bullshit,” and Bonifield responds,
“Could be bullshit. I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now. Like, we don’t have any giant proof.”
He also says that President Trump is “probably right” to accuse cable news, and CNN in particular, of pursuing a “witch hunt” against him and his administration.
But the CNN Network stated the following in a statement Tuesday afternoon: “CNN stands by our medical producer John Bonifield,” and went on to sat “Diversity of personal opinion is what makes CNN strong, we welcome it and embrace it.”
But we can not recall one time since January 20th that CNN has reported positively on all things that have improved since Trump tooko office. Illegal border crossings are down 80%, the stock market is up
