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“That story did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted,” CNN said in an editors note posted in place of the story.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.
DOES ANY ONES REALLY WONDER WHY KAEPERNICK DOES NOT HAVE A JOB IN THE NFL?
Kaepernick just does not know when to shut up. NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick stated following the acquittal of a police officer in the shooting death of a black motorist that police officers should be compared to fugitive slave patrolmen. WHAT? And he wonders why no NFL team has signed him? A note to ESPN’s uber-lib Max Kellermen who last week demonized the NFL by playing the National Anthem as being political, who’s is being political Max? A jury of twelve individuals cleared Officer Jeronimo Yanez of all charges connected to his July shooting of Castile, a black man. Yanez shot Castile seven times in the presence of his girlfriend and daughter after pulling him over because Castile reportedly fit the description of a robbery suspect.
As opined at IJR, he has no team, but Colin Kaepernick isn’t finished stirring up trouble and now he is still going after cops. They stated, “One would think that, with his career on the line, Kaepernick might tone down the political rhetoric — particularly the more inflammatory statements, but one would be wrong”. Kaepernick has the freedom of speech to say what he wishes and the NFL teams and their owners also have the rights to avoid this distraction like the plague.
Just how lazy could one really be in their thinking.
NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick compared police officers to fugitive slave patrolmen after a Minnesota officer was acquitted in the shooting death of a black motorist.
Kaepernick tweeted his displeasure with the verdict, with a graphic reading “You can’t ignore your history – always remember who they are.”
Between the lines, a police badge is shown side-by-side with a “fugitive slave patrol” badge.
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.
THE WITCH HUNT CONTINUES …
Despite no evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia during the 2016 presidential election, the witch hunt continues. Thus, there has been no evidence after months and months and months of investigations, this charade continues. This has nothing to do with finding out the truth, its a political war against President Trump.
FORMER FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY ADMITS UNDER OATH THAT NEW YORK TIMES IS FAKE NEWS!!!
Well if you did not already know it, James Comey confirmed it. The New York Times is fake news. It is simply amazing the BS that the liberal MSM has been spewing to the American people. The MSM has disgraced themselves and their profession all because they cannot stand the occupant of the White House. So much for fairly reporting the news.
RISCH: OK. So – so, again, so the American people can understand this, that report by the New York Times was not true. Is that a fair statement?
COMEY: In — in the main, it was not true. And, again, all of you know this, maybe the American people don’t. The challenge — and I’m not picking on reporters about writing stories about classified information, is that people talking about it often don’t really know what’s going on.
And those of us who actually know what’s going on are not talking about it. And we don’t call the press to say, hey, you got that thing wrong about this sensitive topic. We just have to leave it there.
I mentioned to the chairman the nonsense around what influenced me to make the July 5th statement. Nonsense, but I can’t go explaining how it’s nonsense.
RISCH: Thank you.
All right. So — so those three things, we now know, regarding the active measures, whether (ph) the president’s under investigation and the collusion between the — the Russian — the Trump campaign and the Russians.
I — I want to drill right down, as my time is limited, to the most recent dust-up regarding allegations that the president of the United States obstructed justice. And, boy, you nailed this down on page 5, paragraph 3. You put this in quotes — words matter.
You wrote down the words so we can all have the words in front of us now. There’s 28 words there that are in quotes, and it says, quote, “I hope” — this is the president speaking — “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”
Now those are his exact words, is that correct?
RISCH: And you wrote them here, and you put them in quotes?
RISCH: Thank you for that. He did not direct you to let it go.
COMEY: Not in his words, no.
RISCH: He did not order you to let it go.
COMEY: Again, those words are not an order.
RISCH: He said, “I hope.” Now, like me, you probably did hundreds of cases, maybe thousands of cases charging people with criminal offenses. And, of course, you have knowledge of the thousands of cases out there that — where people have been charged.
Do you know of any case where a person has been charged for obstruction of justice or, for that matter, any other criminal offense, where this — they said, or thought, they hoped for an outcome?
COMEY: I don’t know well enough to answer. And the reason I keep saying his words is I took it as a direction.
COMEY: I mean, this is the president of the United States, with me alone, saying, “I hope” this. I took it as, this is what he wants me to do.
COMEY: Now I — I didn’t obey that, but that’s the way I took it.
RISCH: You — you may have taken it as a direction, but that’s not what he said.
COMEY: Correct. I — that’s why…
RISCH: He said — he said, “I hope.”
COMEY: Those are exact words, correct.
RISCH: OK, do you (ph) — you don’t know of anyone that’s ever been charged for hoping something. Is that a fair statement?
