CNN fights their fake news moniker by pretending to search for truth in journalism.
That’s how Leftism works. It lies blatantly and openly about what it wishes to accomplish. The perception is all they care about.
Thus, Brian Stelter runs around interviewing people in the name of teaching media literacy and hosting summits to expose fake journalism.
Nice try, CNN.
Despite CNN’s feeble attempt to showcase fairness in reporting, Americans know the truth. And a roundtable titled “Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy” at the University of Chicago proved that even students understand that CNN manufactures the fake news it purportedly wants to prevent.
A freshman exposed CNN for what it actually is. He directed his question at Brian Stelter:
My name is Christopher Phillips. I’m a first-year at the college.
You’ve all spoken extensively about FOX News being a purveyor of disinformation. But CNN is right up there with them. They pushed the Russian collusion hoax, they pushed the Jussie Smollett hoax, they smeared Justice Kavanaugh as a rapist, and they also smeared Nick Sandmann as a white supremacist. And yes, they dismissed the Hunter Biden laptop affair as pure Russian disinformation.
With mainstream corporate journalists becoming little more than apologists and cheerleaders for the regime, is it time to finally declare that the canon of journalistic ethics is dead or no longer operative?
All the mistakes of the mainstream media, and CNN in particular, seem to magically all go in one direction. Are we expected to believe that this is all just some sort of random coincidence, or is there something else behind it?
Now it was time for Stelter to respond.
“It’s time for lunch. There’s a clock that says 30 seconds, but I think my honest answer to you, and I will come over and talk in more detail after this…
I think you’re describing a different channel than the one that I watch. But I understand that that is a popular right-wing narrative about CNN,” said Stelter.
It gets worse. Stelter actually tried to pretend CNN holds itself accountable for their blatant misrepresentations of the truth.
“I think it’s important, when talking about shared reality and democracy, all these networks all these news outlets have to defend democracy. And when they screw up, admit it.”
So in fact, Stelter dismissed the student. Keep in mind that Phillips provided ample examples of CNN butchering journalism, yet Stelter said to him directly, [pp] “Don’t believe your lying eyes!”
