CNN’s Jim Sciutto suffered an embarrassing beatdown on Twitter in mid-December after he was called out by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for blatantly lying.
“We are happy to provide the facts — but you never reached out. In fact, DHS prevented 3,755 known or suspected terrorists from traveling to or entering the U.S. in FY 17. That’s in addition to 17,526 criminals, 1,019 gang members, and 3,028 special interest aliens,” DHS spokesman Tyler Q. Houltan said, mocking the alleged news organization with its own #FactsFirst hashtag.
Sciutto claimed on his personal Twitter account, which has nearly 300,000 followers, that there was no evidence to support President Donald J. Trump’s claim that terrorists were crossing the southern United States border.
“The president has now twice used the threat of terrorism to justify the wall. Facts supplied by DHS don’t back that up,” Sciutto said.
The fake news reporter either neglected his journalistic duty to ask Homeland Security for statistics about terrorists crossing at the border, or simply lied because the lie fit his agenda of leftist activism.
Houlton noted that Sciutto “never reached out.”
This is the second very public embarrassment for Sciutto in 2018. He co-authored a piece claiming – through the use of anonymous sources – that Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen would testify that Trump knew in advance about the infamous 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer linked to the Kremlin. One of the piece’s “anonymous sources” was Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis. Scuitto’s piece claimed that Davis had “declined to comment” for the story. Davis accidentally spilled the beans that he was the source of the story live on a CNN talk show. Oops.
This is CNN.

CNN’s Jeff Zucker Is Heard Spiking Hunter Biden Laptop Story in Latest Project Veritas #CNNTapes
The Hunter Biden story was off limits at CNN.
CNN President Jeff Zucker can be heard instructing the network’s personnel not to cover the bombshell Hunter Biden laptop story in leaked conference calls in October, ensuring that the network’s audience wouldn’t hear of the evidence documenting the corrupt foreign business dealings of Joe Biden’s son in Ukraine.
Wednesday’s release is the latest of Project Veritas’s #CNNTapes. James O’Keefe of the whistleblower organization confronted Zucker on CNN’s daily conference call on Tuesday, revealing to the corporate media operative that the medium had been compromised.
Zucker explains that the Hunter Biden laptop story belonged exclusively to the “rabbit hole” of Fox News, Breitbart, and the New York Post in leaked conference call audio from October 23rd.

CNN Vice President and political director David Chalian more openly places a lid on the bombshell story in the leaked conference call, glossing over the reports of Biden family corruption and stating it was “obvious” that CNN wouldn’t cover it.
“Obviously we’re not going with the New York Post story right now on Hunter Biden, which seems to be giving its marching orders to Fox News and the right wing echo chamber and what to talk about today…”
Another CNN Vice President, David Vigilante, questions why any corporate media reporters are retweeting the story at all, suggesting it should be completely and totally ignored.
“What in the world are Maggie Haberman and Jake Sherman doing retweeting that story?”
The Hunter Biden laptop story may be the most censored news report in American history, with Big Tech platforms such as Twitter and Facebook going to unprecedented lengths in order to purge mention of it from their platforms.
