If someone in your orbit lied to you every day to influence you to dislike another community member, would you trust them? If someone told you one of the most despicable criminals in the country deserves your vote for president, is it safe to say you’d never want to deal with them again? Those are scenarios the dishonest media perpetrated during the run-up to the 2016 elections and the entire time former President Donald Trump was in the White House.
On this Breaking Points report, Saager Enjeti explores the dark and twisted world of the dishonest media and its love affair with convicted felon Michael Avenatti.
CNN — widely considered the leader in fake news — courted a porn actress’s legal counsel because he was willing to sling false and defamatory accusations at Mr. Trump. The fake news network went as far as to tout Avenatti for president and handed him what amounts to upwards of $1 billion in campaign contributions. The unscrupulous lawyer explored his chances right up until Trump’s lawyers trounced him in court. Avenatti’s fall from grace and ensuing prison sentence received only a few minutes of coverage on the networks that positioned him as their hero.
If you want to know just how low into the muck the dishonest media sunk with this character, Enjeti delivers the facts about Avenatti they won’t. Watch this video and ask yourself if you can ever trust the fake news media again.
