UNBELIEVABLE … CNN Host Chris Cuomo Says ‘Fake News’ Insult is the ‘Equivalent of the N-word for Journalists’
AS IF THE LIBERAL MSM COULD NOT GET ANY MORE RIDICULOUS AND BE MORE INSULTINGLY WRONG …
So are black Americans going to boycott CNN after this misguided and insulting comment? CNN’s Chris Cuomo said that be believes using the term “fake news” toward the media is the equivalent of the N-words for journalists. WOW. How could anyone be so arrogant and ignorant to make such a ridiculous comment? A note to Chris Cuomo, CNN and the rest of the MSM … the use of the word “fake news” to describe what you people pass as news is NOTHING LIKE THE N-WORD! Is this really what the liberal news thinks of black people? That some how they are in the same boat of racism and bigotry as some because they are being called out for what is bias journalism with a liberal agenda?The smug Cuomo said, you better be right if you are going to charge a journalist with fake news. REALLY? How about the journalist better get the story right and actually do the sourcing before they spew their liberal agenda based reports?
I cant wait for the backlash on these foolish comments and the apology.
CNN host Chris Cuomo said on Thursday that he believes hurling the “fake news” insult at journalists is similar to when people use racial slurs against minorities.
“I see being called ‘fake news’ as the equivalent of the N-word for journalists, the equivalent of calling an Italian any of the ugly words that people have for that ethnicity,” Cuomo said on SiriusXM.
“That’s what ‘fake news’ is to a journalist,” the CNN host continued. “It’s an ugly insult, and you better be right if you’re going to charge a journalist with lying on purpose.”
UPDATE I: You knew it would not take long for the apology as I am sure the phones and social media lit up at CNN after Chris Cuomo compared Fake news to the N-word. Cuomo could not text fast enough the following apology, ‘I was wrong. Calling a journalist fake -nothing compared to the pain of a racial slur,’ he wrote on Twitter Thursday afternoon. ‘I should not have said it. I apologize.’
Donald Trump Calls CNN Fake News At Press Conference in Wake of Release of an Unverified Dossier by Buzzfeed (VIDEO)
DONALD TRUMP CALLS CNN FAKE NEWS …
Yesterday at President-elect Donald Trump’s first press conference, he called out and put CNN News in its place by calling them “fake news”. In the wake of the release of the unverified dossier released by BuzzFeed and run with by CNN, Trump called CNN for what they were. The fact of the matter is that CNN wanted it to be true, that’s why they ran with this unsubstantiated report. They never would have done this to Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. But they are so willing to go after Trump that any and all journalistic standards are thrown to the wayside. Personally, the individual was acting so rude and disrepectful, I would have had hi removed if he didn’t shut up.
“Your organization is terrible!” Trump fumed, trying to move on to another reporter, despite Acosta’s pleas that he be allowed to ask a question, since Trump had slammed his network.
“Don’t be rude,” Trump responded. “Don’t be rude. No, I’m not going to give you a question . . . You are fake news!”

Yasmin Seweid, Woman Accused Of Making Up Story Of Anti-Muslim Harassment On Subway … Update: Arrested for Filing a False Police Report
HMM, DO THE DEMOCRATS AND MSM CARE ABOUT THIS FAKE NEWS ….
18 year old Yasmin Seweid, the woman who claimed she was a victim of a hate crime and anti-Muslim harassment appears to have made up the entire story. Oh wait MSM and Democrats, would that be fake news? The Muslim student who said she was harassed on the subway by drunken, hate-spewing white men shouting “Donald Trump!” It was all a lie. She made the story up because she broke curfew. She was charged with filing a false police report and obstructing governmental administration. So we are presented once again with another phony “Islamophobic” hate crime that the MSM was all too willing to embrace and jump on. Maybe the hate crime is that she accused Christians of assault?
Police on Wednesday said a New Hyde Park teen made up a story about being verbally attacked on a New York City subway train because she is Muslim.
Yasmin Seweid, 18, was brought in for questioning by police around 2:30 p.m., sources told CBS2. She was charged with filing a false police report and obstructing governmental administration, sources said.
Seweid claimed that she was verbally assaulted by a group of three men on the subway around 10 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1. She told CBS2’s Tracee Carrasco she got on the No. 6 Train at 23rd Street and Park Avenue after leaving an event at Baruch College.
“I heard them talk, but I had my headphones in, I wasn’t really listening, I had a long day. And they came closer and I distinctly heard them saying, ‘Donald Trump,’” she said.
“They were surrounding me from behind and they were like, ‘Oh look, it’s an f-ing terrorist,’” she said. “I didn’t answer. They pulled my strap of the bag and it ripped, and that’s when I turned around and I was really polite and I was like, ‘can you please leave me alone?’ and everyone was looking, no one said a thing, everyone just looked away.”
Seweid said no one stopped the men, not even when she claimed they tried to tear off her hijab.
“They kept saying, ‘You don’t belong here, get out of this country, go back to your country,’ and finally they came really close and they were like, ‘Take that rag off your head,’” she said.
Seweid also criticized President-elect Donald Trump personally.
Since Donald Trump’s election night victory and at the direction of Hillary Clinton campaign operatives, social media users have been scolded and warned over the scourge of “fake news” from supposedly respected journalistic outlets, on the web and on network television. Clinton herself, just last week, even blamed her election loss partly on the dangerous spread of fake news.
So enter the curious case of Yasmin Seweid, the 18 year old New York City college student whose story of being harassed and assaulted by three Donald Trump supporters on a line 6 subway train went viral. This came on the heels of reports — many exaggerated — a so-called “surge” in Trump-fueled, hate-filled activity.
