CNN Publishes Biggest Fake News Story Ever, Trump Takes Them to Task

CNN has been pushing false stories about President Donald Trump ever since he was elected. Every time, they are exposed for spreading falsehoods. But they don’t seem to learn. After a major bombshell report came up entirely false, Trump was on hand to criticize them.

Fake news is a very real thing. But it’s not coming from conservatives. As numerous patriots around the country spread factual stories about our president, the mainstream media does nothing but lie. They distort facts, misreport events, and even edit videos to make our Command in Chief look bad.

In many cases, they invent entire stories, citing “anonymous sources” as proof. All too often, those sources turn out to be just plain wrong — or even made up.

This summer, CNN published what might be its biggest fake news story ever. In July, they wrote that Trump knew in advance about the meeting Donald Trump Jr had with a Russian lawyer in June 2016. Trump has always said he had no idea about the meeting ahead of time. If CNN’s story is true, Trump has been lying all this time.

It would all but confirm the left’s accusations that Trump worked with Russia to steal the election.

To give this story weight, they enlisted the help of renowned journalist Carl Bernstein. He was one of the reporters that broke Watergate, which led to Richard Nixon’s downfall. Clearly, CNN was swinging for the fences. They really wanted this story to be the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.

There’s just one problem: the entire story was a lie.

In a July 27 piece of very fake news Bernstein co-wrote with CNN anchor (and former Obama official) Jim Sciutto and researcher Marshall Cohen, Bernstein declaratively informs us, “Contacted by CNN, one of Cohen’s attorneys, Lanny Davis, declined to comment.”

That statement is a lie, a proven lie, a bald-faced lie, because we now know for a fact that Lanny Davis did NOT decline to comment. What’s more, Davis was a CNN source for that steaming pile of very fake news. [Source: Breitbart]

The “anonymous source” CNN used to build this story was, in fact, Lanny Davis. This same man has openly admitted to the opposite of what the story claims. Donald Trump did not have prior knowledge of Donald Jr.’s meeting. The entire CNN article was fake news.

CNN continues to stand behind the piece, though. At this point, these arrogant elitists are too delusional to even see their own corruption. As the world laughs at CNN’s pathetic attempt at fake news, Donald Trump calls them out once again.

President Donald Trump continued to rip CNN on Wednesday for their use of anonymous sources that proved false.

“Anonymous Sources are really starting to BURN the media,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “The fact is that many anonymous sources don’t even exist. They are fiction made up by the Fake News reporters.”

Trump cited the latest CNN story co-bylined by Watergate legend Carl Bernstein that is falling apart under scrutiny.

“Look at the lie that Fake CNN is now in,” Trump wrote. “They got caught red handed! Enemy of the People!”

Trump used the story to cast doubt on all reports using anonymous sources.

“When you see ‘anonymous source,’ stop reading the story, it is fiction!” he wrote. [Source: Breitbart]

It seems like every attempt at taking Donald Trump down only helps him. The media is going to such great lengths to lie about the president. Only to be exposed and embarrassed. Trump now has more reason to appeal to the American people that, yes, the media is their enemy.

You’d think CNN would actually try to limit the damage at this point. So few Americans trust the media anymore. It only gets worse as time goes on. The more the liberal media pushes these stories, the fewer people respect them.

But instead of trying to change their ways, in the hopes of rebuilding their reputation, they continue to spew fake news. Only crazy people would do this.

I guess Trump Derangement Syndrome is a very real thing. Today, Trump gets to take another victory lap around the liberal media. Don’t expect this to end anytime soon. The MSM deserves this.
