CNN NEWS and the mass media in the Trump era, are widely labeled and criticized as “fake news” media.
Fake News is a form of communication consisting of deliberate disinformation or hoaxes spread via
traditional news media or online social media.
Journalists and the news organizations must observe “Objectivity” and “Impartiality” when reporting
on an issue that is of public interest. But in the digital age, not many in the mainstream media,
whether right or left, are known to stick to a journalistic code of conduct.
It’s all about ratings, and it’s pursuit entices journalists and news anchors to find ingenious ways to
outmaneuver each other, to the extent, that the line that separates fact from fiction, lies from the truth
and honesty from dishonesty, has all but vanished.
Today’s age of news media, the word dishonesty, lies, and fiction associated with “Fake News.”
A term coined by Donald J. Trump, popularized by “we the people” and synonymous with CNN.
So today’s Breaking News: 4 reasons CNN truly, absolutely and without a doubt, is Fake News.
1- A news channel for the left, by the left, from the left.
For all those who don’t know, Warner Brothers own CNN, based in Hollywood, California, the Mecca of far
left-liberalism. The reason why now and then a CNN news anchor appears on the silver screen to declare a
national emergency or an alien invasion; lately, they’re doing it off the silver screen as well. So it’s no surprise
when Antifa and their followers were given a pass on CNN, whereas, teenagers like Nick Sandman are grilled
and labeled as racists and xenophobic, for observing their first amendment right.
2- The Cuomo “Blood-Brothers”
If your brother happens to be the governor of New York and you are working at a leading news organization responsible for holding politicians accountable, do you think you can do your job impartially? Maybe, if you hate him with all your heart! Like Cain. But Chris Cuomo and Andrew Cuomo aren’t like Cain and Abel, quite the opposite. Remember when Chris Cuomo was called “Fredo” and the backlash it created? Even Donald Trump tweeted about that! Well, Andrew Cuomo came to his brother’s defense. During an interview with WAMC radio on Aug. 19, Andrew Cuomo expressed concern about negative stereotypes Italian-Americans face due to their popularization in films.
It seems like a family business, one brother runs the city, the other controls the narrative, and the people kept in the dark. It all leads to legitimate questions about CNN’s authenticity when reporting on issues that reflect poorly on the Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo.
3- Democrat News Network
The Democratic National Committee barred Fox News from hosting the 2020 Democratic primary debates.
Why? Because Fox News leans Right! In an interview with Chris Cuomo, Tom Perez, the DNC Chairman, explained that he wanted the democratic candidates treated “Fairly.” Yes, people, you read that right, because if journalists start asking Joe Biden why he lets children play with his wet legs? Or what percentage of native American blood, Elizabeth Warren has? Or how many times Bernie Sanders has used a private jet to attend a campaign rally? That, people, will be unfair. So, who best to delegate the task of hosting the 2020 Democratic Primary than CNN?
4- Write, Post, Retract, Repeat
CNN has a habit of posting stories and headlines without thoroughly verifying them and then silently correcting them; however, they often forget that the “watchers” are always “watched.”
Here are some of the highlights.
- CNN had to retract a story about Anthony Scaramucci being under investigation after it was revealed to be fake news.
- White House reporter Manu Raju claimed Donald Trump Jr. had advanced knowledge of the Wikileaks release of the Podesta e-mails. Two sources confirmed this story, and it was fake news. To this day, Raju refuses to expose the sources who fed him a phony story.
- Jake Tapper reported that fired FBI director James Comey would testify that he never told Trump he was under investigation. After Comey testified, Tapper’s article was updated to include this disclaimer, “This article and headline are corrected to reflect that Comey does not directly dispute that Trump has been told multiple times he was not under investigation in his prepared testimony….”
It’ s no surprise when you hear that a lawmaker has passed a bill to recognize CNN a fake news organization officially. Yes, you heard it right. A Tennessee lawmaker Micah Van Huss has introduced an amendment to a resolution that would recognize CNN and the Washington Post “as Fake News” that is “part of the media wing of the Democratic party.”
The amendment read: “We recognize that fake news outlets suggest ideas without directly making accusations so that they can claim innocence from their ivory towers.”
