CNN and FAKE NEWS – a love song
This music driven rhyme pits an actor-portrayed “CNN White House correspondent” against the same actor playing an “in-studio CNN anchor.” While the “correspondent” bemoans the fact that CNN was kicked out of the White House press gaggle, the “anchor” spews hideous amounts of fake news.
To make matters even more hilarious, the news ticker at the bottom of the video feed spews false stories, reported, as “real news,” and then clarifies that they’re not true either. Here’s some of the laugh-inducing back and forth, along with the fake ticker news – thrown in for good measure.
Nothing else to report, Ed as we’ve been banned from the press gaggle and labeled as “fake news” by the president.
We’ll have to prove him wrong. Thanks Tim.
Trump’s approval numbers have gone to new lowsaccording to a new poll–and we’re never wrong about those.And is Starbucks’ new cup bringing people to tears.No, but we’ll find two tweets like we do every year.

Iraqi mother dies waiting for Trump immigration ban. A previous story detailing the death of an Iraqi mother was not true.
Look, this is obviously bad. But do you think we could maybe help our case a tad. They say we’re not news, that we just make stuff up.
My apologies, Tim, I’ll fix that right up. A nurse shark bit a man in a Florida park. Could this summer be the SUMMER OF SHARKS?
Plus, a product you own causes death exponentially. The answer to that misleading question eventually.

Remy, the actor who made the video, continues the hilarity by presenting the lies and rebuttals to them. Poking fun of all mainstream news outlets, he specifically targets CNN.
Ed you’re hiding the cause of acute meningitis. Do you see why perhaps, there are folks who don’t like us? I really believe that they’re flatly just wrong. But could you just help me a little?
Can do, cap-i-tan. Well a hero is born? Meet the daring AG who won’t enforce laws with which she disagrees.

Plus, Kim Davis the mouth-breathing slob. Should we jail public servants who won’t do their job?

The state department’s entire senior management team unexpectedly resigns. A previous story regarding the resignations of state department’s entire senior management team was not true.
See, that’s what I mean. That’s what they accuse. That we color the coverage to match with our views. Should we not be objective and foster a trust?
I suppose you’re right, Tim. I’ll do what I must.
