More FAKE News … AP Makes Correction to Trump-Russia Stories (FOUR, Not 17 U.S. Intelligence Agencies)
EVEN WITH COMMON CORE MATH: 17 – 4= 13
On the Friday of a July 4th holiday day week with many not paying attention, the AP took the opportunity to report that they have been reporting FAKE NEWS for quite some time. Earlier in the week, the NY Times did the same retraction. It would appear that they, the AP, and numerous other media outlets and Democrat politicians have been using the fictitious number of 17 U.S. intelligence agencies have agreed that Russia tried to influence the 2016 election to benefit Donald Trump. It turns out to be a fabricated number. Because 17 sounds much more impressive than 4. In essence, the AP, and in turn Democrats were trying to make it sound like 100% of the US intelligence agencies have agreed that Russia tried to influence the 2016 election to benefit Donald Trump. Actually, it was only 23.5%. Hmm, that’s much difference, isn’t it?
This news was put out by the media as weaponized information against Donald Trump. The MSM colluded with the Democrat party. Who leaked this information to the media who purposely put forth this incorrect information so that the MSM would run with it and it would become talking points for Democrats.
In stories published April 6, June 2, June 26 and June 29, The Associated Press reported that all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies have agreed that Russia tried to influence the 2016 election to benefit Donald Trump. That assessment was based on information collected by three agencies – the FBI, CIA and National Security Agency – and published by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which represents all U.S. intelligence agencies. Not all 17 intelligence agencies were involved in reaching the assessment.
How much more fake news do we have to have forced upon us for the American people to understand that the MSM really can no longer be trusted? The media has an agenda and they are colluding with the Democrat party. Maybe that is the investigation that needs to be looked into?
FAKE NEWS: MORE CNN PUNDITS CALLING TRUMP-RUSSIA STORY BS … THE LEAST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS.
So now it’s CNN’s Van Jones calling the Trump-Russia story a “nothing burger”. But wait, its not just a nothing burger, “its a BIG nothing burger.”
PV Reporter: What do you think is going to happen this week with the whole Russia thing?
Van Jones: The Russia thing is just a big nothing burger
PV Reporter: Really?
PV Reporter: You don’t think that…
Jones: There’s nothing there you can do.
This coming off the earlier Project Veritas video where a CNN producer was caught saying the Russia-Trump story was “mostly bullshit” and CNN was doing it for ratings.
CNN was hit Wednesday with a second undercover video, this one featuring regular political contributor Van Jones calling the Russia controversy a “nothing burger.”
The video shows Mr. Jones, a former Obama White House adviser, speaking on hidden camera after being greeted by a Project Veritas investigator.
“The Russia thing is just a big nothing burger,” Mr. Jones says on the clip.
The video comes a day after Project Veritas released footage showing CNN producer John Bonifield saying that CNN has pushed what he called the “bullsh—” Russia story in order to juice ratings.
Project Veritas Video American Pravda: CNN … Why Does CNN Do Trump/Russia Stories … The Ratings of Course
DOES CNN CARE ABOUT THE TRUTH? HELL NO, ITS ABOUT THE RATINGS!!!
Bonifield even further confirms CNN’s bias against the President, stating, “I think the President is probably right to say, like, look you are witch hunting me…you have no real proof.”
Bonifield exposes that Russia has been great for CNN’s ratings, and that orders from CEO Jeff Zucker himself have directed CNN to pursue Russia leads at the expense of other stories. Bonifield states “And the CEO of CNN said in our internal meeting, he said ‘good job everybody covering the Climate Accords, but we’re done with it let’s get back to Russia.’”
He further comments on Russia, “it’s mostly bullshit right now. Like, we don’t have any giant proof…if it was something really good, it’d leak.”
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.
