CNN Quietly Changes Headline After Internet Teaches Them When ICE Was Founded

Published

on

CNN was forced to change an embarrassingly incorrect headline after learning from internet users that Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was founded two years later than they claimed.

“This year saw the most people in ICE detention since 2001,” read a headline from a Monday CNN piece.

Internet users quickly taught CNN that ICE was not founded until 2003.

“This is CNN,” said Twitter user Ben McDonald, juxtaposing the headline with a Google search showing that ICE was founded in 2003.

“ICE didn’t even exist until March 1, 2003,” reporter Ryan Saavedra said.

Even the updated article still makes the claim that ICE was collecting data as far back as 2001. How does an organization that does not exist gather information?

“ICE held an average of more than 42,000 people in custody each day throughout fiscal year 2018. The previous record high since ICE began tracking the data in 2001 was just over 38,000 last year,” the article said.

The network also had to update the story after failing to properly give credit to Daily Beast, who apparently reported the statistics first.

“UPDATE: This story has been updated to credit The Daily Beast with first reporting the statistics,” the last line of the piece said.

Just another day at the Cable News Network.

Fake News Hacks Re-Tool ‘Russian Collusion’ Hoax to Smear Both President Trump and Bernie Sanders

The establishment desperately wants to suppress populism.

Published

The evil Russian bogeyman is back again, following likely deep state leaks indicating that Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to support President Donald Trump as well as Democrat presidential front-runner Bernie Sanders in 2020.

The Washington Post reported today that Sanders has been briefed about how the evil Rooskies are supporting him:

U.S. officials have told Sen. Bernie Sanders that Russia is attempting to help his presidential campaign as part of an effort to interfere with the Democratic contest, according to people familiar with the matter.

President Trump and lawmakers on Capitol Hill have also been informed about the Russian assistance to the Vermont senator, according to people familiar with the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence…

“I don’t care, frankly, who Putin wants to be president,” Sanders said in a statement to The Washington Post. “My message to Putin is clear: Stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do.”

… Also this week, a senior U.S. intelligence official said Russia had “developed a preference” for Trump in the 2020 campaign — an assessment that infuriated the president. Trump lambasted his acting intelligence director, Joseph Maguire, and DNI staff for sharing that information with lawmakers, believing that Democrats would use it to hurt Trump in the election.

Considering Trump will be the Republican nominee for president and Sanders is the front-runner to win the Democrat nomination to face him, it is hard to conceive how Putin could help both men win office. But that hasn’t stopped the fake news from pushing the hysterics yet again, as they work to foment neo-McCarthyism.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump refuses to play ball with the fake news media and justify their phony concerns about the Russians.

“I was told a week ago — they said, ‘you know they’re trying to start a rumor,'” Trump said at a “Keep America Great” rally in Las Vegas on Thursday night.

“It’s disinformation — that’s the only thing they’re good at, they’re not good at anything else, the get-nothing, the do-nothing Democrats — that Putin wants to make sure I get elected,” he said.

Trump also threw a little fuel in the fire to create more paranoia within the deranged Dems about the possibility of Bernie being a Russian asset.

“Doesn’t he want to see who the Democrats are gonna be? Wouldn’t he rather have, say, Bernie? ” Trump said.

The Russian hysteria didn’t work the first time they tried it, and it is not likely to work this time around as nobody believes the lies of the fake news, Democrats and deep state anymore.
