Another very fake news scandal has engulfed CNN as the network’s credibility crisis reaches another fever pitch just over a year after three senior network staffers were forced to resign in disgrace over a similar scandal. This time, though, famed Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein is at the center of the scandal, and the network for now is dug in despite deep criticism from across the political and ideological spectrum as far-ranging as Breitbart News and Daily Caller among others on one side, and the Associated Press, Washington Post, BuzzFeed, and more on the other.It all began on July 27 when CNN’s Bernstein shared a byline with former Barack Obama administration official and chief CNN national security correspondent Jim Sciutto, along with CNN researcher and producer Marshall Cohen, with the headline: “Cohen claims Trump knew in advance of 2016 Trump Tower meeting.” The fact that Bernstein–who along with Bob Woodward broke and chronicled the … [Read more...] about Another Very Fake News Scandal Engulfs CNN with Fake Michael Cohen Russia Story

POLITICS 07/22/2018 12:33 pm ET Even more than lauding the president, Trump voters' first reaction is to pan the media By Ariel Edwards-Levy President Donald Trump attacked the media on Sunday for its coverage of his Helsinki summit with Russian president Vladimir Putin, at which his comments during a press conference were was widely panned by much of Washington ― including some members of his own party. “I had a GREAT meeting with Putin and the Fake News used every bit of their energy to try and disparage it,” Trump tweeted. “So bad for our country!” Blaming reporters, of course, is far from a novel strategy for Trump. His “fake news” complaint has been a staple for him both as a candidate and as president, and he began decrying the media reports on the summit with Putin soon after it wrapped up on Monday. Such complaints also have become the reflexive response of many of his supporters, whose response to … [Read more...] about Trump Blames The Media For His Bad Days. So Do His Supporters.
