Of course CNN would want to ban the term ‘fake news’, they are the largest peddler of fake news in the USA.
CNN stated: “When we use the term “fake news” it is not only self-defeating, it oversimplifies a very complex problem.
A year ago, this wasn’t the case. The term actually meant something. It described a particular type of website that used the same design templates as professional news websites but its contents were entirely fabricated.”
But that is not entirely true CNN and you know it.
“Fake News” is and has been applied to FAKE STORIES planted by the Democrat Party or “Journalists in the MSM for the sole purpose of discrediting someone, usually Donald Trump, with FAKE STORIES!
The New York Times has had to issue apologizes twice now for FAKE stories [1-19-2017] about Rick Perry and again on 21 Apr. 2017 for fake photos of crowds at rallies.
CNN has also had to apologize for FAKE News like how President Trump, while on a trip to Japan “over-fed” the palace’s koi fish. CNN, along with several other “News” organizations deliberately and willfully put out this story knowing full well it was fake.
CNN pushed the fake “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” and “I Can’t Breathe” on their newscasts when their reporters, live on air pushed this false narrative.
CNN Falsely Claimed Sherelle Smith Was ‘Calling For Peace’ in a deliberately edited tape and pushed the story when in actuality she was calling for violence.
In Oct. 2016 on air report stated “It is illegal to look at Wikileaks.”
A CNN headline claimed that Rape Is Pre-Existing Condition Under ACHA and could make sexual assault a pre-existing condition, preventing women who survive rape from getting health care.
CNN reported on June 6th that Comey was going to contradict President Trump’s claim that he wasn’t under FBI investigation in his Senate testimony, a report which obviously was going to make Trump look like a liar.
The article, originally titled, “Comey expected to refute Trump,” featured in its byline Jake Tapper, Gloria Borger, Eric Lichtblau, and Brian Rokus.
Of course, this isn’t what Comey said in the Senate. Instead, Comey did not dispute Trump’s claims that he told the president that he was not under FBI investigation.
THIS is what is meant by FAKE NEWS, something most of the reporting coming out of CNN is, fake.
Of course you at CNN want the phrase banned, you are the biggest pushers of fake news!
