CNN has fallen victim to their own admonishment in recent days, as the liberal shill of a television network continues to step into steer excrement of their own creation.
The fake news war between President Donald Trump and CNN has been part of the American experience for several months now, weeks before the businessman/real estate mogul was sworn into the oval office. Now, 6 months into the first term of the republican’s presidency, the leftist “news” organization has created quagmire of phony headlines, unverified reports, and ugly retractions to be stymied by.
Their latest faux pas is yet another example of their shoddy journalistic heritage and their newfound tailspin into obscurity.
“On Friday, CNN executives reportedly went into a ‘panic’ after Jake Tapper’s The Leadreportedly aired a fake National Enquirer cover during a segment on MSNBC host Joe Scarborough’s accusation that President Donald Trump threatened him that the Enquirerwould run a hit piece on Scarborough and his relationship with Mika Brzezinski if Scarborough did not apologize for repeatedly insulting Trump.
“According to the New York Post’s ‘Page Six, the fake cover that aired had the headline ‘Heidi Cruz: Betrayed by Cheating Husband!’ The fake cover apparently ‘promised details on a “sordid threesome, sleazy love letters and sensational photo proof.”‘
“But, according to Post’s sources at the National Enquirer, the fake news cover ‘has never appeared on the National Enquirer,’ and ‘the cover is — literally — fake news.’
‘We’re told the network is taking the matter seriously, and that it has been referred to the [network’s] standards and practices department for review,’ the Post noted.
“The morning after Trump tweeted about how ‘low I.Q.’ Brzezinski was ‘bleeding badly from a face-lift’ during a meeting with Trump at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago, Scarborough said Trump wanted an apology in exchange for getting the Enquirer to spike the planned hit piece.
“’This year, top White House staff members warned that the National Enquirer was planning to publish a negative article about us unless we begged the president to have the story spiked. We ignored their desperate pleas,’ Scarborough and Brzezinski wrote in Friday’s Washington Post.”
While the majority of Americans have been keen to the nonsense being peddled by CNN and their liberal mainstream minions, this is a new low.
The National Enquirer, which by all accounts is the original trolling publication to begin with, was being cited by CNN who claim to be a serious media outlet for world news. Instead, in giving airtime to the salacious tabloid, they weren’t even capable of verifying their sources. Instead, we’re sure to hear some fairytale about an intern and a Google image search.
The end is nigh for CNN, certainly, but this is getting ridiculous.
