Fake News Media Dogpiles Buzzfeed After Bombshell Blows Up

Published

on

A sensational Buzzfeed article accusing Donald Trump of instructing Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the construction of a Trump Tower in Moscow has been proven to be fake news, with Special Counsel Robert Mueller himself releasing a statement attesting to its inaccuracy.

Many personalities associated with mainstream media had become enamored with the story, suggesting that it was the long-sought smoking gun that would lead to Donald Trump’s impeachment and removal from office. A running count of calls for Trump’s impeachment on CNN and MSNBC reached more than 200 individual instances, on Friday alone.

Instead, the contents of the article have dismissed as inaccurate by federal law enforcement figures investigating the Trump-Russia conspiracy theory. Somewhat hilariously, it appears that the theory that would lead to Trump’s impeachment in the minds of progressives has been shot down by the hero of their own fan fiction, Robert Mueller himself.

Establishment-aligned media was quick to cast blame for the fake news story on their own, in several cases targeting Buzzfeed for its publication and circulation.

CNN’s Jeffrey Tobin was forced to admit the brutal and honest truth- recognizing that the entire debacle represented a “bad day for the news media.

CNN’s in-house tattletale Oliver Darcy also expressed a desire to see the fake news network distanced from Buzzfeed’s report- despite running eagerly with the story and promoting it vigorously.

Buzzfeed sought to defend its own reporter, Jason Leopold, from CNN’s accusations, publishing a statement claiming that the network was unfairly attacking him and stating that his reporting was somehow accurate despite being rejected by Mueller.

Coverage of the story’s collapse also seemed to take a decidedly negative approach towards Special Counsel Mueller himself- possibly representing the end of his reputation on the left as an imminent savior set to remove Trump from office at any moment. CNN’s Chris Cuomo said that he “hadn’t done any favors to the media” by debunking the report- as if the former FBI Director was obligated to let the lie slip as a favor to the fake news media.

In fact, Buzzfeed’s fake report is simply the latest in a long line of sensational Trump-Russia stories from mainstream outlets floating an “unconfirmed” or anonymous source about supposed collusion, usually warranting immediate impeachment.

In a remarkably similar scenario, ABC News correspondent Brian Ross was demoted and suspended after an earlier sensational fake report accusing Trump of requesting direction from unspecified Russians during his Presidential campaign. Ross had spun the claim wildly from its original context, in which the President sought to conduct diplomacy with Russia after being elected.

Should Americans expect the Fake News media to learn from its enduring pattern of sensational lies and fake reports about Trump and Russia? Probably not.

Should Americans expect mainstream media to fall into the same trap again and again of circulating sensational and easily-debunked Trump-Russia “bombshells” until losing all credibility with the American people?

CNN, MSNBC and Buzzfeed seem to be working overtime to answer that question with a resounding “yes!”

CNN Pretty Boy Don Lemon Lumps All Trump Voters Together with Klansmen and Neo-Nazis in Vicious Rant

How on earth does this man have his own TV show?

Published

on

On CNN Wednesday night, Don Lemon disparaged every single Trump voter by saying that they’re part of the same crowd as Klansmen and neo-Nazis.

In the transition from his show to Lemon’s, Chris Cuomo posed to Lemon a devil’s advocate position that “you can’t say everybody who voted for Trump is like the people who who went into the Capitol.” Lemon responded thus:

“If you are on that side, you need to think about the side you’re on. I’m never on the side of the Klan. Principled people, conservative or liberal, never on the Klan side. Principled people, conservative or liberal, never on the Nazi side. Principled people who are conservative or liberal, never on the side that treats their fellow Americans as ‘less than,’ that says that your fellow Americans should not exist, that says your fellow Americans should be in a concentration camp, or that sides with slavery, or sides with any sort of bigotry.

Cuomo jumps in to continue playing devil’s advocate: “And if they say, ‘I don’t agree with those people, I just like Trump’s policies’?”

“Then get out the crowd with them,” Lemon says. “Get out of the crowd.”

Cuomo then retorts, again pretending to represent the other side: “‘I wasn’t in the crowd, I just voted for Trump.'”

Lemon replied: “You’re in the crowd who voted for Trump. If you voted for Trump, you voted for the person who the Klan supported. You voted for the person who Nazis support. You voted for the person who the alt-right supports. That’s the crowd you are in. You voted for the person who incited a crowd to go into the Capitol and potentially take the lives of lawmakers, took the lives of police officers, took the innocent lives who were there on the Capitol that day. You voted on that side. And the people in Washington are continuing to vote on that side.

Quite the incoherent rant, don’t you think? For one, Klansmen and neo-Nazis are by and large not Trump supporters. Even if some were at one point, they were among the quickest to turn on Trump, for they realized that he was not and was never going to be Hitler 2.0. Plus, none of those who breached the Capitol were found to be members of the Klan or a neo-Nazi group. So there goes the thrust of Lemon’s argument.

Lemon also claims, without evidence, that Trump “incited” violence and encouraged his supporters to breach the Capitol. Even if you disapprove of Trump’s rhetoric, you cannot admit in good faith that he incited or encouraged any illegal activity.

Someone like Lemon should not be on TV. He is extraordinarily divisive and full of contempt for 75 million Americans.
