How is CNN still a thing? Sure, all of the mainstream outlets are bad, but MSNBC stopped pretending to be neutral a long time ago. Many of their most popular anchors have openly stated their progressive bias. The same is partially true for the New York Times and plenty of other publications. That shouldn’t be a fully acceptable excuse, but only CNN claims to be the most nonpartisan, neutral and unbiased news source around. What a crock.
How many times just this year has CNN been caught in a big fat lie? They were the first to push the MAGA student story in January. When it turned out they had used obviously clipped video to make a bunch of high school kids look bad, they never retracted. They stand by their interview with Nathan Phillips.
It was, what, two weeks later when the promulgated the Jussie Smollett hoax? Don Lemon is a known friend of Smollett; there’s no question he supported this total farce. They went on air and called it a modern-day lynching, despite the fact that it was obviously a made-up story. Still, there were no retractions.
These are just a few highlights, but CNN does this all the time. In a world full of fake news, they just might be the most dishonest media outlet of them all. Just this week, they were fabricating a story about President Trump. She can see their lies unravel in this video.
