CNN BLASTED On FAKE Russia Coverage [VIDEO]
Apparently CNN read President Trump’s memo on “Fake News?”
In what may be the definition of “too little too late,” CNN decided to impose strict new publishing restrictions for online articles involving Russia.
What took so long?!
The change came in the aftermath of the media giant being forced to retract a story on Russia, after they determined 3 reporters fabricated the story.
According to BuzzFeed, an internal email went out at 11:21 a.m. on Saturday from Rich Barbieri, the CNN Money executive editor, saying
“No one should publish any content involving Russia without coming to me and Jason [Farkas],” a CNN vice president.
“This applies to social, video, editorial, and MoneyStream. No exceptions. I will lay out a workflow Monday.”
The new restrictions also apply to other areas of the network — not just CNN Money, ironically not with the article that was deleted and retracted.
As we reported on the journalists,
And the media malpractice continues to catch the Left in its web of lies. The latest caught three journalists at CNN who resigned Monday.
The journalists published a story the network says was improperly vetted, therefore should not have been published.
The claim was made in the story that Trump transition team member Anthony Scaramucci had met with a chief executive from a Russian investment bank a few days before Trump’s inauguration. That meeting never occurred.
But that wasn’t the end of the CNN fake news.
The story stated that Congressional officials were investigating whether Scaramucci spoke to a Russian official at the bank regarding possibly alleviating U.S. sanctions on Russia.
However, later in the week, CNN scrubbed the story from its website.
The now-deleted story was published Thursday and cited a single, unnamed source.
The report falsely claimed the Senate Intelligence Committee was looking into a “$10-billion Russian investment fund whose chief executive met with a member of President Donald Trump’s transition team four days before Trump’s inauguration.”
I joked about CNN’s CEO Jeff Zucker about fake news and Benghazi:
CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker isn’t worried about reporting the news. And he won’t be bullied into reporting what other people have grown up knowing as news, since CNN likes to make it up as they go along.
So when it comes to reporting news on the “fake” scandal of Benghazi where four Americans were allegedly killed under the watchful eye of the Obama administration, CNN says they need more evidence.
And that’s why Jeff Zucker said,
“CNN won’t be shamed into giving more coverage to still-unanswered questions swirling around the terror attack in Benghazi.”
Shamed? Now that’s funny. As if it’s possible to shame what the Left call media these days.
And what of the latest video revelation?
CNN staff reveals that they know Russian collusion is fake. But…it’s good for RATINGS!
Leave it to Project Veritas to confirm our suspicions.
Conservative America has known for some time that the Russia narrative is bullsh*t.
Now we get undercover video proof.
Who’s getting the last laugh?
I wrote of Zucker’s comments about bragging about CNN’s fake news reporting on President Trump boosting morale.
CNN wonders why they are no longer considered a reliable source for news, then their president trashes President Trump.
The media has become so biased that they no longer even pretend otherwise.
As the Reagan Coalition reported,
CNN President Jeff Zucker went on the record to state that his network’s anti-Trump news is “boosting” employee morale, and that employees can wear it as a “badge of honor”.
How long will these miscreants wear that badge of honor, if their ratings continue to tank. And President Trump will do them no favors unless they change.
The media poked the tiger and now got bit, bad.
The only way the media can recover is to actually go back to doing their job.
Trump, in a word: WINNING!
