CNN Doubles Down on Fake News Article

CNN is sticking with a story written by legendary journalist Carl Bernstein, despite the source retracting their statement. The Daily Caller reports:

CNN is continuing to stand by their now debunked Trump Tower story as of Wednesday night — despite numerous holes in it — and the network has now directly challenged the president for calling out their refusal to issue a retraction.

“Make no mistake, Mr. President, CNN does not lie. We report the news. And we report when people in power tell lies,” CNN’s Communications twitter account said. This tweet comes on the heels of the president going after Carl Bernstein, one of the reporters who broke the story.

Despite their latest defense, attorney Lanny Davis has admitted that he was a source for a CNN report claiming that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen is willing to tell the special counsel’s office that President Donald Trump had foreknowledge of the Trump Tower meeting.

Davis admitted in an interview with CNN’s own Anderson Cooper last week that the reporting got “mixed up” and that his client, Michael Cohen, does not have any information proving that the president knew of the meeting beforehand.

While a source retracting their statement wouldn’t necessarily discredit CNN, their rabid doubling down only shows that they are committed to oppose President Trump, regardless of truth.

That’s why they have no credibility and only those who want to believe their nonsense even bother to watch them. If you like hearing only what you like to hear watch CNN and like most Leftists who ignore common sense, logic, and the facts you will feel right at home.

CNN now “doubles down” that it doesn’t lie, which is a lie in itself. CNN can claim whatever it wants. I quit CNN when I was neutral politically.
But, CNN offends by lying and distorting every day. I was sick of its lawyer types advising the public what is believable. Now, CNN has to bear the weight of lying Lanny Davis, lying Jeffrey Toobin, sickening Don Lemon, and its cast of truth distorting actors.

I have never watched or listened to CNN, ever. Mostly because I don’t want or have cable. But even if I did I would not waste my time with the Communist News Network. Why is it even allowed to exist?

These anti-Patriotic America politicians, legislators, judges and so-called investigators are not only against Trump but also against our Republic’s Constitution and everything that is righteous and Godly.
. Thank God for answering our election prayers. Imagine the horror had Clinton won?
. That diabolical Satanic cabal would have strip all our constitutional rights and increased strife until the UN would be marshaled in and freedoms removed.
. Prayers, support, campaigning and hard work won the 2016 elections and God can help us again. Never underestimate the power of prayer. God never loss, God is not losing and God will never lose.

The government, the media and our biggest schools, colleges and universities have all been infiltrated by the Communist Party and the Democratic Party which was once the party of JFK, is now the Democratic Communist Party. They will say and do anything to obstruct the Trump Administration in any way they can. Remember this, a vote for a Democrat is a vote for Communism and all the ills that come with that label. GO TRUMP ! GO PENCE ! Martin Korab

How can CNN say they don’t lie when they campaigned for Killary 24/7 for months, while embellishing, lying and spinning every thing President Trump said or did. Did CNN and the rest of the Marxist News get the message that the majority of Americans hate them, that we know they lie, and spin, and that’s one reason President Trump was elected. That shocked these egotistical, arrogant pawns of the Deep State, they had no idea that anyone who possessed a brain and common sense knows the difference between right and wrong. Just read that Fox News is rocking the news world and millions tune into Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingram, and Hannity daily. The obsessed Marxist in the MSM still don’t get the message, the more they insult and lie about President Trump, the more popular the man becomes, because “WE THE PEOPLE” finally have a leader that has come through with every promise, and America is improving in every aspect from the destruction that BO and his Muslim Regime did to this great country. I do believe President Trump was GOD SENT, his election alone was a miracle, and that’s why the Deep State and the Deep State supporters despise him!

CNN is the biggest joke in the left-wing Democrat controlled media. They stood by and approved of all the lies that Barack Hussein Obama told for 8 years and never called him on it, but when the “fake news” network puts out a hit piece on President Trump (then almost immediately retracts the hit piece) CNN continues to stand by the fake news piece. That is a classic case of network bias. We do not understand what drives these people at CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, and all their derivatives , but they are all an arm of the Democrat Party.

I have yet to see any way in which the “Russian Collusion” did anything to assist in Trump being elected. So far all I have seen is how totally corrupt the DNC, the Clintons, the FBI, the DOJ and most of the Democratic party.

This comment is not germane to this story, but are to the political mess in America.
++++++

O’Rourke became a national “sensation” when he said, “And I can think of nothing more American,” about those players who kneel toward our national symbol.

++++++

So is this guy saying that all the GIs buried in military cemetaries around the world because they made the ultimate sacrifice defending America are lesser Americans than football players? Plus the millions that have served. He certainly would not get my vote because he is shallow and insensitive to real Americans!

I learned in military 1957-58 era not to trust politicians and papers in Washington, New York, and New Jersey. Working and training for assignment to Germany, in Intelligence organization we learned not to sent some classified information, that normally was sent to Incumbents in House and Senate, but when we did, item would appear in NY Times, Washington Post, or on CNN the next few days. Years later, in Hawaii, as Satellite controller, with 4 others, with one on each shift of (5 shifts) we managed COMPASS LINK, which was a Satellite Link from Vietnam, to Hawaii, then to Maryland, between Vietnam Ground , major commanders, and White House – Pentagon command centers. Very hush-hush in those days, but Jack Anderson, WP did big EXPOSE in paper when someone got loose lips. I lost faith in CNN when Peter Arendt, Australian reporter for CNN, stayed in Baghdad, to explain to SADDAM HUSSEIN when our bomber left USA, when they would be over IRAQ, and also meaning of buildings and bombing effect. Became Intelligence Agent for SADDAM at the time. Other reporters got out of Iraq at the time. I have been retired since 1976, but I have watched NYT, WP, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, to keep my peer group of retired veterans advised of what to expect. FOX NEWS has always tried to give balanced reporting, with reports of both sides of issues, and with guests to give share their expertize. I do not see that balance with the other channels, and in fact, they get boring, with 15-20 minutes of some news or facts, then spend rest of allotted time, fighting FOX NEWS. This is strange in a sense, since owner also owns BBC in U.K. where they are negative reporting.

Lanny Davis says that Cohen has no proof. That means no recording. That doesn’t prove that it didn’t happen the way he said.
