A July 27 CNN story which the network has called a “bombshell” has turned out to be riddled with lies, and was clearly published only to further the bogus Russian “collusion” narrative.
The former cable news titan broke sensational news claiming that Michael Cohen, former attorney to President Donald J. Trump, had told investigators that he personally witnessed Trump being informed of a 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. The President has long denied having knowledge of the meeting amid mainstream press speculation.
CNN sourced “people who have discussed the matter with Cohen,” and claimed that Cohen’s own attorney, Lanny Davis, declined to comment on the story.
The narrative crumbled when Davis admitted he was the anonymous source – in CNN’s words “people who have discussed the matter with Cohen” – contradicting the claim he refused to comment on the story.
The fact that Davis did not comment for the story is an outright lie which CNN has refused to denounce or retract.
Further, Davis claimed to have lied to CNN, and that Cohen did not witness Trump being informed of the 2016 meeting.
It is possible, albeit unlikely given the network’s history of deceit, that there were other anonymous sources who confirmed for CNN that Cohen had witnessed Trump being informed of the meeting. The claim itself could still be true.
But CNN has refused to clarify, instead generically informing readers that it stands by its reporting, even when other news outlets, including Jeff Bezos’ Trump-hating blog The Washington Post, have retracted stories supposedly confirming it.
“Re: CNN’s July 27 story about Cohen claiming that Trump knew in advance about the Trump Tower meeting: ‘We stand by our story, and are confident in our reporting of it,'” said “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter.

This looks like another classic case of fake news.
Mainstream Media TOTALLY IGNORES Heinous Murder of 5-Year Old White North Carolina Child, Black Man Charged
Imagine if it were reversed.
Nearly 24 hours after North Carolina’s WRAL broke the news of the heinous murder of a five-year old child, mainstream media outlets such as CNN and MSNBC are yet to cover the story.
Darius N. Sessoms, a 25-year old black man, has been accused by witnesses of callously shooting white five-year old Cannon Hinnant, who was riding his bike through Wilson, North Carolina.
Sessoms was brought into custody and charged with first degree murder on Sunday night.
ABC News, Reuters, and NBC are among the other corporate news outlets that are steadfastly ignoring the story, as of Tuesday night.

Every one of these news outlets has extensively covered incidences of crime in which the races of the perpetrator and the victim are reversed, including the Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd cases. In both cases, similarly to the Hinnant case, the alleged prepetrators were arrested and charged in the crimes. They’re remarkably silent when it comes to a case in which the alleged perpetrator is black, even though the murder of the five year old child appears to be even more heinous and senseless than the deaths of two grown men.
Sessoms’ brother appears to be a convicted pedophile.
Reports of the killing also appear to dismiss the racial dynamics of the heinous crime, declining to share pictures of the victim and the suspect.
