Photo published for Very Fake News Scandal Erupts Again: CNN’s Cillizza’s Latest Attack on Trump Debunked by His Own...


( Daily Wire ) Just a day after his hilarious and well-deserved humiliation at the hands of an epic Reddit Q&A, CNN’s own Chris Cillizza — he of the adorable blue-framed eyeglasses — has been made a public fool of again, revealed as unethical again, this time by his very own colleagues at the last-place CNN — which has also been exposed again as a leader of all things fake news.

As we all now know, on Tuesday night, straight through to Wednesday, the American media went on another one of their Fake News Witch Hunts against Donald Trump, this one about a sinister “secret meeting” between the American President and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin. Desperate to keep their flailing Russian conspiracy theory afloat, the media took a usual-usual G20 dinner conversation, one that took place literally in front of the whole world, a dinner the media all knew about, and turned it into a series of frenzied fake headlines.

Because he is awesome, Trump used his Twitter feed to expose and mock this fake news

At CNN Cillizza blasted Trump as a liar with two claims: 1) “No media outlet reported anything about a ‘secret dinner'” and 2) “no one is suggesting that the media was unaware that the dinner was taking place.”

In the meantime, at this very same CNN, on this very same day, Brooke Baldwin is calling the dinner “secret” and openly asking “Why didn’t we know about this?”

But wait, there’s more!

[CNN anchor Kate] Bolduan on Wednesday called it a “secret and second sitdown between the president and Russian president Vladimir Putin. Why wasn’t the meeting revealed?”

The liberal media are not happy with one of Donald J. Trump latest tweet on how ‘Fake News will be forced to discuss our great jobs numbers, strong economy, success with ISIS, the border & so much else!.’

NBC’s Chuck Todd said. ““If these actions and this language was being used by a leader in a different country, our State Department… not just we in general… would be saying ‘Hmm, that country is inching towards authoritarianism. Because that’s usually the first sign: when you try to delegitimize a free press.”

NBC’s Katy Tur oh-so-seriously and ominously asked on-air what Trump meant by “forced.”

Talking Points Memo tweets:

Trump declares the press will be “forced” to cover his achievements. What First Amendment?

  • CNN’s Wolf Blitzer: ” The concern all of us in the news media have about the president calling us enemies of the American people. ..that is a very, very harsh statement and potentially very dangerous.”


Hey Wolf, President Trump is just draining the fake news media swamp and as long as the liberal media continue to make fake news, Trump will continue to fight fake media – the enemy of the American people.



Wednesday on CNN’s “The Situation Room,” host Wolf Blitzer asked White House Correspondents’ Association president Jeff Mason if he has discussed the “potentially very dangerous” issue of President Donald Trump calling the media “enemies” of the American people with the White House communications team.

Blitzer said, “Hold on. I want to get Jeff Mason back in this conversation. You’re the president of the White House Correspondents’ Association, you’ve met with Sean Spicer, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House team—have you raised the concern all of us in the news media have about the president calling us enemies of the American people? Because that is a very, very harsh statement and potentially very dangerous.”

Mason answered, “Well, that type of rhetoric is something that we have spoken about since he first said that, and many of you probably were at or watched the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and I addressed that then as well. That is rhetoric that we reject and is just not something that I think is helpful to the public discourse and it’s not, again, it’s just not something that’s true.”

CNN is facing a $100 million libel lawsuit from Anthony Scaramucci , hedge fund  manager and member of Trump transition team member, for a fake story they were forced to retract, claiming Scaramucci is under investigation by Congress for his alleged link  to a Russian investment fund.

He got an unusual public apology but the threat of lawsuit continues.


Via The New York Post:

The specter of a $100 million libel suit scared CNN into retracting a poorly reported story that slimed an ally of President Trump’s — and forcing out the staffers responsible for it, The Post has learned.

The cable network’s coverage of Trump transition-team member Anthony Scaramucci came amid federal scrutiny of corporate parent Time Warner’s pending purchase by AT&T — and the widespread belief among media execs that CNN President Jeff Zucker can’t survive a merger.

CNN immediately caved after Scaramucci, a financier and frequent network guest, cried foul and threatened to take legal action, sources said Tuesday.

Scaramucci got an unusual public apology but still hired a top Manhattan lawyer to put further pressure on CNN and “look after [his] interests in this matter,” one source said.



TRUMP ON 3 CNN EMPLOYEES WHO RESIGNED OVER FAKE RUSSIA NEWS: “What about all the other phony stories they do? FAKE NEWS “

Trump lashes out at CNN following retracted Russia story

  • Trump: ‘Wow, CNN had to retract big story on “Russia,” with 3 employees forced to resign. What about all the other phony stories they do? FAKE NEWS!’


Donald Trump launched a new attack on CNN Tuesday after three of its journalists were forced to resign over an anti-Trump story that the network retracted.

‘Wow, CNN had to retract big story on “Russia,” with 3 employees forced to resign. What about all the other phony stories they do? FAKE NEWS!’ the president tweeted.

Trump also retweeted a Photoshopped version of CNN’s iconic logo – remade to read ‘FNN – Fake News Network.’

And in a followup tweet, he wrote: ‘Fake News CNN is looking at big management changes now that they got caught falsely pushing their phony Russian stories. Ratings way down!’

He later tweeted a shot across the bow of other news agencies: ‘So they caught Fake News CNN cold, but what about NBC, CBS & ABC? What about the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost? They are all Fake News!’


The three CNN employees lost their jobs after the outlet deleted a story from its website that claimed there were possible ties between Russia and an associate of President Donald Trump.

In the wake of their resignations, Donald Trump Jr. called for CNN’s president Jeff Zucker to publicly explain, saying the story is ‘the biggest fake news scandal in the network’s history.’

Thomas Frank, Eric Lichtblau and Lex Haris were all involved in CNN’s new investigative unit and left the company Monday.

Frank wrote the deleted story, Lichtblau was an editor in the unit and Haris oversaw the unit.

CNN announced Monday afternoon that three employees have indeed resigned after publishing fake news that forced the network to make retraction.

Via CNN:

Thomas Frank, who wrote the story in question; Eric Lichtblau, an editor in the unit; and Lex Haris, who oversaw the unit, have all left CNN.

“In the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on CNN.com, CNN has accepted the resignations of the employees involved in the story’s publication,” a spokesman said Monday evening.

An internal investigation by CNN management found that some standard editorial processes were not followed when the article was published, people briefed on the results of the investigation said.


Erik Wemple of WaPo reports:

Now for the consequences. CNN announced on Monday afternoon that three network officials are leaving their jobs over the incident: Frank, the reporter on the story; Eric Lichtblau, a recent CNN addition from the New York Times who edited the piece; and Lex Haris, the executive editor of “CNN Investigates.” The moves follow an investigation carried out by CNN executives over the weekend, with the conclusion that longstanding network procedures for publishing stories weren’t properly followed. “There was a significant breakdown in process,” says a CNN source. “There were editorial checks and balances within the organization that weren’t met.”

The official CNN statement: “In the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on CNN.com, CNN has accepted the resignations of the employees involved in the story’s publication.”
Regarding the personnel changes, a CNN source said, “The individuals all stated that they accepted responsibility and wanted to resign.” A compelling wrinkle in the saga of the story springs from the careful language in the editor’s note: “That story did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted. Links to the story have been disabled. CNN apologizes to Mr. Scaramucci,” it reads. CNN is not bailing on all the factual representations in the story, however. “We pulled it down not because we disproved it,” says a CNN source, adding that there was “enough concern” on some factual points that “given the breach in process, we decided to pull it down.”
