Thread: Fake News (CNN) in crisis over Russia coverage, lying about President Trump

Muleman1994 - 6/27/2017 at 03:22 PM

Suffering a creditability crisis over its fake news, Fake News (formally known as CNN) retracts another Russia/Trump story and their producer calls Russia coverage ‘mostly **** ’

Three journalists quit CNN in fallout from retracted Russia story
By Howard Kurtz Published June 26, 2017 - Fox News

CNN reportedly imposing strict new rules on Russia coverage

Three CNN journalists who worked on a now-retracted story about Russia and a top Trump adviser are leaving the network.

CNN is casting their departure as resignations in the wake of the fiasco, but the network has come under substantial criticism since apologizing for the story. The move would also help CNN’s legal position in case of a lawsuit.

Anthony Scarmucci, the Trump adviser who is the target of the story, told me that he has no plans to sue. He said he has accepted CNN’s apology and wants to move on.

But Scaramucci also told me in an earlier interview, “I was disappointed the story was published. It was a lie.”

Lex Harris, executive editor of CNN’s investigative unit, was the highest-ranking official to resign.

Thomas Frank, who wrote the story, and Eric Lichtblau, who edited it, also turned in their resignations. Lichtblau is a highly regarded reporter who spent nearly a decade and a half at the New York Times.

The story tried to draw a link between Scaramucci and the Russian Direct Investment Fund. Scaramucci was a Trump transition team member who has been nominated to an ambassadorial-level post based in Paris.

The CNN.com article said that Scaramucci, back in January, held a secret meeting with an official from the Russian fund. According to an unnamed source, Scaramucci discussed the possibility of lifting U.S. sanctions at the meeting.

But Scaramucci told me there was no secret meeting. He said he had given a speech on Trump’s behalf at Davos, and fund official Kirill Dmitriev approached him in a restaurant to say hello and they had a brief conversation, with no discussion of sanctions.

In the retraction, the network said the story “did not meet CNN’s editorial standards.” The network is now requiring approval from two top editors before any Russia-related story can be published.

The Latest: CNN tweets a correction at Trump
AP
21 minutes ago
NEW YORK --
The Latest on CNN's retracted Russia story (all times local):
11:40 a.m.
CNN says President Donald Trump is wrong to suggest the network is failing.
The president, in a morning tweetstorm related to CNN's retraction of a story about a Trump associate's meeting with a Russian financial leader, suggested that the network is looking at management changes. "Ratings way down," the president tweeted.
But CNN's public relations team tweeted back at him Tuesday morning that the network just recorded its most-watched second quarter in history.
Said CNN: "Those are the facts."
___
10:55 a.m.
A conservative provocateur posted a video Tuesday of a man identified as a CNN producer commenting on his network's coverage of President Donald Trump and connections to Russia.
The producer, identified as John Bonifield, said it appeared CNN had no "smoking gun" evidence of wrongdoing by the president and was giving the story extensive coverage because it was good for the ratings. A CNN biography lists Bonifield as a producer for the network's medical unit, with no indication that he's involved in political coverage.
The video, posted by James O'Keefe's Project Veritas, had Bonifield talking with an unidentified person while sitting at a table behind a drink and later in an elevator.
CNN has not commented on the video. O'Keefe and his website have a long history of aiding Republican causes, often with the use of hidden cameras. The law firm of one victim recently sued O'Keefe, alleging violation of a federal wiretap law.
The video was released after three CNN journalists resigned Monday following the network's retraction of a story Friday about a supposed investigation into a pre-inaugural meeting between a Trump associate and the head of a Russian investment fund.
___
9:11 a.m.
President Donald Trump is using the resignations of three CNN journalists involved in a retracted Russia-related story to rail against media credibility.
On Tuesday morning he tweeted, "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!"
He also wrote, "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 CNN story was about a supposed investigation into a pre-inaugural meeting between a Trump associate and the head of a Russian investment fund. The story was posted on the network's website Thursday and was removed, with all links disabled, Friday night. CNN accepted the journalists' resignations Monday.

If Fox held to CNN’s standard, the network would have fired Special Report anchor Bret Baier over last year’s retracted, anonymously sourced report, presented days before the presidential election, that an indictment was “likely” in the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email server. Fox & Friends hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade wouldn’t still have jobs after being scolded by a top network executive and a federal judge for their tendency to credulously report Internet hoaxes and absurd smears. Senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano would have been canned after he claimed that unnamed intelligence sources had told him that late last year, a British spy agency had surveilled Trump on behalf of then-President Barack Obama.


BoytonBrother - 6/27/2017 at 06:11 PM

Obama bad, fake news, corrupt liberals.....what a simple-minded bore. After Mule was exposed for quoting the Washington Post yesterday , which he claims is fake, he is now trying to define fake news as only CNN. You see, the post ran a story that he liked, so therefore it's no longer fake news......until tomorrow when it criticizes Trump. Then it will be fake news again. And he wonders why nobody takes him seriously.


Muleman1994 - 6/27/2017 at 07:25 PM

As it turns out the whole Putin/Russia/Trump conspiracy/collusion fake news of the almost last entire year was exactly that, fake.

His mind slid away into the labyrinthine world of doublethink. To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget, whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again, and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself — that was the ultimate subtlety; consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word 'doublethink' involved the use of doublethink.

What part of the NYT article is false? When you have no answer you attack the source. And yet, when you get around to giving a source, it is usually a right wing site. And, you show that you just read the headline because often the link is the opposite of what you say.

You have no business criticizing anyone here about anything.

Do you mean this?

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/cnns-jim-acosta-on-white-house-media-crit icism-does-this-feel-like-america/article/2627253

CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Tuesday asked his followers on Twitter if "this feels like America" after Trump administration's spokeswoman Sarah Sanders complained about the media at the day's press briefing.

"Does this feel like America?" Acosta asked his 315,000 followers. "Where the White House takes [questions] from conservatives, then openly trashes the news media in the briefing room."

At the briefing, which many reporters have complained about for being frequently held off-camera in recent days, Sanders said that President Trump is "frustrated" by the "constant barrage of fake news" about his administration and the federal investigation into whether his 2016 campaign colluded with Russia.



That is unhinged? We have a party in power that creates legislation behind closed doors. WH press briefings are not allowed to be televised and the president will only be inter viewed by Fox News which lobs softball questions at him. Are you OK wit this?

I never said "they are living in "safe spaces".

You obviously have no concept of what the little liberal snowflakes are demanding.
Of course the corrupt liberal media didn't cover that phenomenon because it made them look even more stupid.

As long as you get information from the corrupt liberal media and ignore legitimate news outlets you will remain the left's low-info voter they so desperately need.

Really? I must have missed the video of Obama fighting with Fox News, calling them out on twitter, and banning them from press conferences.

The imminent death of Fake news (CNN):

CNN's Ratings Collapse As Primetime Shows Draw Less Viewers Than Re-Runs Of "Yogi Bear"

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-07-06/cnns-rating-collapse-prime-time-sh ows-draw-less-viewers-re-runs-yogi-bear

A series of fake news articles (see here, here and here), black mail of anonymous Reddit users who had the audacity to poke fun at them and a couple of undercover videos from Project Veritas revealing CNN producers admitting their own news is "mostly **** ," seems to be taking a toll on CNN's ratings.

As The Federalist notes in the table below, for the week of June 26th - July 2nd, CNN's primetime shows (Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon) managed to draw about 6% fewer viewers than multi-decade old re-runs of "Yogi Bear," "Full House," and "Friends" which air in the same time slots on Nick-At-Nite.

Having Donald J Trump in the Whitehouse and watching CNN and the MSM crumbling has been truly a joy

LOL!!! I won't hold my breath for you to post just one example, being it's well documented. I feel bad for your family if this is how you comprehend people - they have no chance with you at the helm.

Wait, are you suggesting Trump lied about something? Just because the facts say the complete opposite you can't expect Trump supporters to believe anything unless it comes from Emperor Cheeto's twitter account. Remember, we are in a post fact world where Trump can't do any wrong and the facts don't matter.

I'm just curious to what made you think that voting for Trump was the right call. I just don't get why anybody voted for him.
