In contrast to CNN's weasel attempt on Tuesday to absolve themselves of their increasingly-dubious Trump Tower story, CBS updated their own CBSNews.com post and NBC’s Hallie Jackson wrote a piece explaining the change at NBCNews.com. For ABCNews.com, they did next to nothing by instead relying on an Associated Press wire story about Davis’s flip-flopping. However, none acknowledged on-air the changes despite 39 minutes 23 seconds of coverage one their morning and evening newscasts from July 27-31.
A week after Michael Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis blew a massive hole in their reporting and nearly a day after he admitted he was their anonymous source, CNN’s Jim Sciutto and Carl Bernstein finally got around to answering the mounting questions surrounding their increasingly dubious about claims the President knew the Trump Tower meeting in advance. Despite their key source’s public retreat, CNN continued to stand by their reporting.
As of 1:00 p.m. Tuesday, CNN has not spent a second of airtime on Monday night’s revelation that Michael Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis now admits to lying on-air to Anderson Cooper when he denied being a key source for a massively-hyped news item CNN broke last month.
In a BuzzFeed News bombshell published Monday night, Michael Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis, admitted he was the source of fake news aggressively pushed by CNN and eagerly spread by the rest of their liberal media ilk. According to BuzzFeed News reporter Steven Perlberg, “Attorney Lanny Davis says he was an anonymous source in a July CNN story that reported his client, Michael Cohen, had privately claimed that President Trump had advance knowledge of the infamous Trump Tower meeting between his son and Russians — contradicting Davis's own words on CNN's air last week.”
On Thursday, the “big three” morning and evening network newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC failed to inform their viewers that Michael Cohen did not actually know whether then-candidate Donald Trump had a heads-up on the infamous Trump Tower when media reports starting on July 26 originally claimed otherwise. This massive correction by Cohen lawyer Lanny Davis was ignored on the networks despite the fact that the original claim fetched 28 minutes and 29 seconds of coverage on their July 27 morning and evening newscasts.
From the moment President Trump ended his remarks announcing the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran Deal, it was DEFCON-1 at CNN with panelist after panelist losing their minds over the President’s decision. One after another, they almost universally claimed that leaving the deal has left America less safe, jeopardized progress with North Korea, handed Iran a “propaganda victory,” and destroyed “international unity.”
If CNN's Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin has bad news for former FBI Director James Comey you know it has to be real bad. Toobin delivered his bad news about Comey's leaked memos on Monday's The Lead which was hosted by Jim Sciutto. The news that Toobin presented might be enough for Comey to break out his worry beads: he placed himself in a "pretty vulnerable position" by leaking them.
Mere seconds after ABC wrapped up their Sunday night broadcast of its exclusive interview with former FBI Director James Comey, CNN began its so-called “Special Report” in which they mostly gushed about what it meant for him to trash Trump like that. While they did have some criticisms (which largely centered on his handling of the Clinton investigation), the stacked liberal panel sang Comey’s praises for speaking out against the President.
On Thursday afternoon, it was no accident that CNN almost universally focused on New Jersey Democratic Senator Cory Booker’s questions for CIA Director Mike Pompeo at his confirmation hearing to oversee the State Department. It was even less of a surprise that the CNN panel gushed over Booker “masterfully” attacking Pompeo in a “tough exchange” about his views on gay sex.
Since Sunday night, the liberal media have been haranguing network affiliate owner Sinclair Broadcast Group (SBG) for a new “must-run” promo that warned against “biased and false news.” The two have slammed it as Trump-backed “state-run TV” on par with the former Soviet outlet Pravda that's “chilling,” frightening” and “a really embarrassing moment for journalism.” A NewsBusters study examined the two cable networks on April 2 found that CNN spent 76 minutes and 42 seconds while MSNBC hyperventilated for nearly twice as long at 134 minutes and 42 seconds.
For the second day in a row, the legacy media has found itself obsessed with the controversy surrounding Sinclair Broadcast Group's promotion denouncing fake news and promising journalistic honesty and integrity. CNN's New Day presented no exception to the media hysteria, with co-host Alisyn Camerota comparing the promos to hostage videos.
To CNN's horror, President Trump unleashed a series of new tweets Monday morning, picking up where he left off in his "tweet storm" on Sunday. As she briefed the anchors of New Day, White House Reporter Kaitlan Collins could not tell if "these tweets actually represent a change in policy for this President or if they’re just simply him venting after watching cable news."
