THE FAKE NEWS KEEPS COMING FROM CNN … FORCED TO RETRACT STORY …
Just more fake news from CNN and another reason why they are no longer the most trusted name in news. In a continued effort to get President Donald Trump and falsely tie him with the Russians, CNN was forced to delete, retract and scrub their fake news story involving an investigation of a Russian investment fund with potential ties to several associates of President Donald Trump. This is what happens when a news outlet operates as a arm of the Democrat party and reports propaganda, not news. Whether this be considered fake news or wrong news, the fact of the matter is that CNN went with it because they hoped it was true news and another attempt to smear the Trump presidency.
On Thursday evening, CNN investigative reporter Thomas Frank published a potentially explosive report involving an investigation of a Russian investment fund with potential ties to several associates of President Donald Trump.
But by Friday night, the story was removed from CNN’s website and all links were scrubbed from the network’s social media accounts.
“That story did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted,” CNN said in an editors note posted in place of the story. “Links to the story have been disabled.”
Neither Frank or CNN immediately responded to requests for comment, and a spokesperson for the Senate Intelligence Committee wasn’t available to comment.
Frank, a Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist, had reported that the Senate Intelligence Committee was investigating a “$10-billion Russian investment fund whose chief executive met with a member of President Donald Trump’s transition team four days before Trump’s inauguration.”
In addition to retracting its story, CNN also apologized to Anthony Scaramucci, an adviser to Trump during the presidential campaign and a member of his transition team’s executive committee, who was mentioned in the story as having met Kirill Dmitriev, the head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) that the network said is overseen by Vnesheconombank, a state-run bank that is currently under U.S. sanctions.
THE LEFT HAS A LOT OF SOUL SEARCHING TO DO AND SOME EXPLAINING FOR THEIR HATEFUL, VIOLENT RHETORIC …
As reported at The Daily Caller, an assassination list was found on the body of James Hodgkinson, the Left-wing radical, who attempted to shoot Congressional Republicans while they practices baseball this past week in Alexandria, Va. As suspected by the fact that Hodgkinson’s asked whether those practicing were Republicans or Democrats, this was not a random act of violence. The assassination, kill list proves proof positive that this was a premeditated attempt to murder Republicans. Names on the hand written list included, Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, Tennessee Rep. Scott DesJarlais and Virginia Rep. Morgan Griffith. All conservative members of the House Freedom Caucus. This was a premeditated effort by a whack-job on the LEFT to assassinate Conservatives.
Imagine what the wall-to-wall news cycle would have been like had Hodgkinson been a Conservative with an assassination list, or a member of the Tea Party? But instead, he was a LEFTY who volunteered for Sanders’ campaign so Democrats and the MSM cry, for the moment, or the second, can’t we all just get along.
James T. Hodgkinson, the shooter who opened fire on dozens of Republican congressmen and staffers at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday, had a list of Republican names in his pocket that was recovered by the FBI, The Daily Caller has learned.
The news that the shooter had a list of names suggests the shooting was not a random outburst, but instead appears to be a premeditated political assassination.
The list was written out on notepad paper and found in the shooter’s pocket, according to multiple sources with intimate knowledge of the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of the investigation. The list of names included Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, TheDC has confirmed. Fox News reported after this story that Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, Tennessee Rep. Scott DesJarlais and Virginia Rep. Morgan Griffith are also on the list. All six congressmen are members of the House Freedom Caucus, which contains the lower chamber’s most conservative members.
Isn’t it ironic and typical that for years we have been told by the MSM, Democrats and the LEFT that it was the Tea Party that was violent and that they would harm liberals and even make an attempt on former President Obama’s life. But instead, it is the LEFT that attempts assassination.
EVER WONDER WHY ESPN IS HEMORRHAGING VIEWERSHIP AND LAYOFFS ARE A PLENTY … LOOK TO NOTHING MORE THAN THEIR LIBERAL AGENDA.
On Thursday, ESPN “First Take” co-host Max Kellerman said during the show that the NFL injects politics “by playing the national anthem and putting pressure on you to stand for it.” WHAT? You think the playing of the American National Anthem is political? Dude, stick to sports as you know nothing of what you speak. So you don’t think that Kaepernick went looking for a protest? I will call you on your bullshit. Maybe you would like to read the reason why he did so, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” His protest was thought out and contrived. Of course he went looking for a protest. You doofus, Kaepernick even stated as much. He was protesting Black Lives Matters. Dear Max, before you spout off with your liberal BS and diarrhea of the mouth, maybe you would like to do some research? But then again, liberals don’t care much about the facts.
As for Max Kellerman, you are an ignorant little man. Sadly, you are a microcosm of what ESPN has become and the reason why the once leader in sports entertainment is nothing more than a joke. ESPN long ago forgot what drove it, SPORTS! Not the liberal agenda they try and spew like the rest of the MSM. ESPN, like MTV a long time ago, has lost its way. If one thinks that the actual playing of the national anthem is interjecting politics into sport, then God help you. One might say Max, that you are they one and your ilk at ESPN who are interjecting politics into sports.
ESPN “First Take” co-host Max Kellerman said during Thursday morning’s show that the NFL injects politics “by playing the national anthem and putting pressure on you to stand for it.”
Kellerman said that neither Ali nor Kaepernick went looking for a protest. The protest came looking for them.
“He was asked to stand for the national anthem,” Kellerman said. “You do not have to stand for the national anthem, and even if it was a rule that you did, is that Colin Kaepernick injecting politics into the NFL? No, that’s the NFL injecting politics.”
“I’m very patriotic. I stand for the national anthem proudly,” Kellerman added. “The reason I am patriotic is because you do not have to stand for the national anthem.”
And a note to Stephen A. Smith, no one deserves a job. They earn one. It takes more than just talent to play in the NFL. No organization wants a player who thinks they are bigger than the team, who would demand more attention than the team, more media attention and becomes nothing more than a 3-ring circus. Sorry, whether you are the NFL or any corporation, that us the case. Unless you have a lot to offer a team, be very important and are not a pariah, that is the only way you would have a job. But make no mistake about it, no one deserves a job.
Hmmm … So far, Former FBI Director Comey is Disappointing the Anti-Trump, MSM and Liberal Democrat Witch Hunters
AFTER ALL THE HOOPLA FROM THE MSM AND DEMOCRATS, IS THERE REALLY NO THERE, THERE?
As reported at the NY Post, some of former FBI director Comey’s prepared statement for his Thursday testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee are exactly what President Donald Trump has previously said. Comey did tell Trump on three separate occasions that he was not personally under investigation. But of course Comey would not make this public. He had no problem when investigating Hillary Clinton making those matters pubic. It has also been stated that Comey is not going to accuse Trump of obstruction of justice. SO THEN WHY IN THE HELL ARE WE HAVING THESE HEARINGS!!! This is beginning to look exactly what it is, nothing. A completely orchestrated attempt bey Democrats, the media and former Obama operatives to sabotage Trump’s presidency.
So President Trump was absolutely correct when he insisted — to much derision from Democrats and the mainstream media — that then-FBI Director James Comey assured him three times that he wasn’t personally under investigation.
That’s just one of the revelations in Comey’s prepared statement for his Thursday testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Yes, some of the others paint the president as unaware or unconcerned with how the government works, and as obsessed with top officials’ “loyalty.”
And Comey says Trump repeatedly asked for the investigation of ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn to go away.
But also that the prez never crossed the line by actually ordering a shutdown.
An order would be considered obstruction of justice. But just making the request is troubling — since it suggests the president doesn’t appreciate why investigative agencies like the FBI must remain fully independent and immune from political interference.
TELL US SOMETHING WE DON’T KNOW … NEWSFLASH, THE MSM IS BIAS AND HAS AN AGENDA AGAINST TRUMP.
According to a Harvard University study, the MSM bias against President Donald Trump is huge and unprecedented. If it seems like the MSM has it out for President Trump and reports pretty much every thing he does as negative, that is because they do. Just look at the charts below and see how the MSM reports on topics in a positive or negative slant and then take a look at how Trump compares to other presidents, especially Obama.
Keep this in mind when you watch the news. They are no longer reporting it, they are slanting it to fit their liberal, left-wing agenda. The MSM was AWOL for Obama’s eight years and the endless scandals like Fast & Furious, Benghazi, IRS-gate, let alone the lies of Obamacare. But for Trump, they do not even give him a chance. The MSM is working in lockstep with the Democrat party as their propaganda arm. Remember this, especially at election time.
A major new study out of Harvard University has revealed the true extent of the mainstream media’s bias against Donald Trump.
Academics at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy analyzed coverage from Trump’s first 100 days in office across 10 major TV and print outlets.
It found that the tone of some outlets was negative in as many as 98% of reports, significantly more hostile than the first 100 days of the three previous administrations:
In America they analyzed CNN, NBC, CBS, Fox News, the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal.
They also took into account the BBC, the UK’s Financial Times and the German public broadcaster ARD.
Every outlet was negative more often than positive.
Only Fox News, which features some of Trump’s most enthusiastic supporters and is often given special access to the President, even came close to positivity.
