We had Rasohomon the movie in which the same scene is presented several different ways depending on the point of view of the performers.

As NewsBusters has previously reported, CNN’s Chris Cillizza wrote an op-ed torching the idea of raising “unfounded questions about a presidential candidate’s health.” As Fox News host Laura Ingraham pointed out, CNN is the last news organization that should be lecturing anybody about raising "unfounded questions” about the health of our leaders.
What? CNN's Cillizza Scolds Fox for Blurring 'Journalism and Activism'
June 11th, 2019 12:25 PM
On Monday night, Chris Cillizza, CNN’s editor-at-large and political reporter, penned an article entitled “Fox News crosses the line on Joe Biden.” All sense of self-awareness was lost on Cillizza as he spouted off about how Fox News was somewhere “in the gray area between journalism and activism.” It seems that he has never watched any of the shows on his network,…
