Included in their coverage over the last several months have been stories that had to be recanted. They said that Trump was under investigation by the FBI. They said Jeff Sessions perjured himself during his confirmation hearing and it turned out to be not true; neither Pelosi nor Schumer have apologized about these claims either.
They said Sessions had secret meetings with the Russians which turned out to not be meetings at all but social gatherings with over 100 people attending the same event. They said the Trump campaign was involved with Russia in trying to influence the election. They said that Russia hacked into the polls and changed the vote count.
Three employees of CNN resigned (fired?), over reporting that one of Trump’s main supporters was invested in a Russian investment fund that was controlled by the Kremlin. They were wrong and had to apologize.
An under-cover video was released where one of CNN’s producers was caught saying their coverage of Trump is bull**** and that there wasn’t anything legitimate to get him on. He stated the network’s goal was clear and that is to find dirt on President Trump. He was asked why the network is going after Trump and he said it was all about ratings. I’m not sure if he’s going to “resign” but I’d be surprised if he keeps his job after telling the truth.
Now they’ve caught CNN’s Van Jones on video saying the Russian investigation is a “nothing burger” but that CNN is obsessed with finding a story. Chris Cuomo is on video saying that Hillary’s loss wasn’t on them because they did everything they could to get her elected. Think about this statement as I find it shocking that a supposed news organization had this goal. It wasn’t fair to Bernie Sanders or Donald Trump. By the way, I’ve seen all the videos I listed above so I’m not coming at you with some right-wing conspiracy.
Jeff Zucker, who is the president of CNN, and Ted Turner the owner, were major Hillary Clinton supporters so there’s absolutely no doubt they hate Trump. By the way, the head of all major news sources (i.e. Chicago Tribune, MSNBC, New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, etc.), are all liberal progressives. Unfortunately this has bled in to their news coverage as the network’s liberal bias is so blatant. This is why President Trump and so many of his supporters call them “Fake News” which they get irate about but they continue to feed this thought process by their coverage.
As a reminder, and this includes more than just CNN, liberals and the mainstream media were making fun of Sarah Palin non-stop about saying: “I can see Russia from my house.” The problem is that she never said this; it was a spoof that Tina Fey did on Saturday Night Live. What she did say to Charles Gibson (ABC), during her election campaign was correct and that is there are points in Alaska where you can see Russian territory. Her statement can be seen on You Tube.
This isn’t in reference to CNN but I’ll mention it because it has just come out. Sarah Palin is suing the New York Times for making two claims that have proven to be false and there’s no doubt in my mind that she’ll win and some employees from the NYT’s will “resign.”
In a crazy effort to take heat off of Bernie Sanders for one of his campaign worker’s attempted mass murders of members from the Republican Party, they claimed Palin said some things and that her PAC did some things that led to the attempted assassination of Representative Gabrielle Giffords and the murders of six people including a child. They were completely wrong about their claims and they had to post a retraction. This was a terrible thing to say about someone. The problem is that they put their crazy stories on the front page then bury their retractions.
The mainstream media gets so mad at Trump and his supporters for making the claim that they are fake news but they’re bringing it on themselves. They are so tunnel-versioned on bringing Trump down that it’s distorting their news coverage.
I’ve got to say that as someone who researches and writes, I’m struggling more and more to find accurate sources when it comes to politics. But I promise you that I’ll continue to pursue multiple sources to provide you with as accurate information as possible; at least I’ve never had to post a retraction.
