CNN defends itself from Donald
Trump´s ´fake news´ attack

Washington Examiner, by Eddie Scarry

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/11/2017 2:24:49 PM

CNN is defending its decision to publish a story based on an unverified report that claimed the Russian government has compromising financial and personal information related to President-elect Trump. The network released a statement Wednesday following a press conference Trump hosted in New York, wherein the president-elect called CNN "fake news" and called BuzzFeed "a failing pile of garbage" for posting the actual unverified report, along with a story that called on Americans to decide on their own whether it´s true. "CNN´s decision to publish carefully sourced reporting about the operations of our government is vastly different than BuzzFeed´s decision

Mr Trump, please have your press secretary do the smart and right thing. Make an example out of buzzfeed, cnn and any other organization who participated in this smear.

Remove their press credentials.

Use your alternate means of communication to go directly to Americans and inform them as to who, by name, and organization tried to undermine the will of WTP and the election with Fake news.

Fake news organizations should no longer have the protection of the First Amendment.

There is no defense. CNN´s attitude is inexcusable. They should apologize and change their ways if they wish to continue to exist.

Unverified indeed. National Enquirer is probably jealous of CNN´s "breaking news".
CNN has crossed the line and should be made to pay...in court and/or advertising dollars.

We all know it´s true.

CNN can ´defend´ itself - but they are the true proffers of fiction - while omitting truthful, newsworthy segments because they didn´t favor The Beast.

The National Enquirer has more credibitlity at this moment.

CNN´s "defense" that the American people should be allowed to make the decision themselves about the information flies in the face of their hiding negative information about the Obama administration for eight years or downplaying it once revealed, and their unethical complicity in cheating with Clinton´s campaign. They are laughable, completely lack ethics, are liars, and dangerous to our country.

Retail giant Sears said it will close 50 auto centers and 92 underperforming pharmacies inside Kmart stores in a bid to further cut costs in the face of rising red ink. The cuts come just four months after the Hoffman Estates, Illl-based retailer announced it would close 150 Sears and Kmart department stores across the country. At the time, CEO Edward Lampert said the company needed to reduce operating costs by $1 billion. In announcing the new round of closures Friday, Lampert said the cost cuts would now total $1.25 billion. In addition to the auto centers and pharmacies, the

Rep. Mark DeSaulnier, D-Calif., told a sixth grader last week that she should be worried because President Trump is more dangerous than a terrorist. During the Q&A portion of a town hall event held at Stanley Middle School in Lafayette, Calif., DeSaulnier took a final question from 11-year-old Eden, according to a report published Saturday. It was past her bedtime and she had given her question to a school staff member to be asked, the report said.

Ever since L.

But the fact that a text is royalty-free doesn’t exempt authors from the ordinary courtesy of acknowledging their source material. The political reporters Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes ought to be ashamed that they didn’t mention where they’d found the plot for their new book, Shattered. In the early pages of Shattered,

There could not be a better example of liberal media double standards than the kerfuffle over former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin posing in front of Hillary Clinton’s White House portrait (as First Lady) with rock stars Kid Rock and Ted Nugent. The ladies of The View had their knickers in a knot. “You’re in the White House. Bring a little class with you!” sniffed Sara Haines as her co-hosts agreed in one way or another. Really? Really? Clearly The View crew (not to mention Palin’s critics) seem to have forgotten this story as recounted back in 2012 in Philadelphia Magazine.

Democratic lawmakers and activists cheered Earth Day in rainy Washington, D.C., on Saturday at the "March for Science." Organizers of the event told the Washington Examiner´s Robert King that the march would not function as an anti-Trump demonstration, but many of President Trump´s vocal critics made their voices heard via the march anyway. "Science is the pursuit of truth for the public interest," tweeted Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, former Democratic Party vice presidential candidate in 2016. "Pres Trump can´t dismiss this fact, or all those marching today #MarchForScience." Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy trained his sights on the government in a

The tourists milling around outside Buckingham Palace stared in amazement as the Queen Mother walked through its gates following an impromptu stroll from her home at nearby Clarence House. I was as surprised as anyone that she had made the journey on foot. As her equerry — a glorified word for fixer and organiser — I had advised her that unexpectedly heavy traffic meant it would be impossible for her to make a planned lunch engagement at the Palace on time and suggested that we should put it off. ‘Nonsense,’ she had announced. ‘We’ll just have to walk.’ And so

A few weeks ago I was watching a segment on "Fox & Friends" about Christie Brinkley, at age 63, rocking a swimsuit on the cover of Sports Illustrated. She appeared flawless. Beautiful long, blonde hair – gorgeous smile. Her face was glowing with youth. Her arms looked toned and tanned. She looked half her age. “I’ll have what she’s having, please!” I yelled out from the back of the studio to my friends Ainsley, Steve and Brian. I was serious. I wanted to know all her secrets.

Macron, who, like Obama, favors France’s remaining in the European Union, is in an almost neck-and-neck race with candidate Marine Le Pen ahead of the first round of French elections on Sunday.

Steel yourselves. Barack Obama’s about to emerge from the shadows — and first stop, University of Chicago. Why there? No doubt, it’s one of the more receptive breeding grounds for his particular brand of activism — the activism he’ll be touting to malleable student-age minds while engaging in, as his people called it, a “conversation about community organizing and civic engagement.” Make no mistake about it. This is about teaching the upcoming generation, loud as it already is about all topics that offend, to get even louder, even Leftist Prouder, and to — here’s the gist — use that Leftist

A Chicago artist has finished his mural of Michelle Obama in a colorful image that features the former first lady as an Egyptian queen. The painting by artist Chris Devins was completed Friday on the southeast corner of Chappel Avenue and 74th Street in South Shore. That´s two blocks from the former first lady´s childhood home at 7436 S. Euclid Ave. and across the street from Bouchet Elementary, which she attended when it was known as Bryn Mawr School. "I wanted to present her as what I think she is, so she´s clothed as an Egyptian queen. I thought that was appropriate,"

Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers

The September 2016 article in Politico championing Hillary Clinton’s use of "data analytics" now looks—how shall we put it?—rather premature. Politico swooned that computer algorithms "underlie nearly all of the Clinton campaign´s most important strategic decisions." Computer guru Elan Kriegel had crunched the numbers for campaign manager Robby Mook, allowing Team Clinton to precisely target her potential voters and thus not waste one dime on appealing to the deplorables.

Former President Barack Obama will make his first public appearance Monday, hosting an event on civic engagement on his old stomping grounds at the University of Chicago. The event, open to the public but with limited tickets, will bring together younger leaders and students “for a conversation on community organizing and civic engagement.” It won’t be an explicitly political event. As an Illinois state senator, Obama once represented the neighborhood where the campus is located and also was a law professor at the university. He last stopped by the campus in 2016, using an event at the law school to make a
