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.

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.

CLINTON NEWS NETWORK.

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.

WASHINGTON — House Democrats had no concerns about President Barack Obama offering to share intelligence about Syria with Russia last June because that decision “was made as a product of consultation between the president and the intelligence community,” a top Democrat said Wednesday. House Intelligence Committee ranking member Adam Schiff and other Democrats have harshly criticized President Donald Trump for disclosing classified information to Russian officials last week. In response to a question from The Daily Caller, Schiff explained the circumstances were entirely different. “What should we disclose to an ally? What should we just goes to an adversary?

Note: this article contains coarse language which may offend some readers. House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday questioned why former FBI Director James Comey didn’t come forward sooner, if President Donald Trump pressured him to close his investigation into Michael Flynn as recent reports suggest. “The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has appropriately requested this memo. And I’m sure we are going to want to hear from Mr. Comey about why, if this happens as he allegedly describes, why didn’t he take action at the time," Ryan told reporters during a press conference.

President Donald Trump turned a Coast Guard commencement into a media-bashing exercise on Wednesday as he returned fire on news outlets accusing him of sharing classified information and interfering in an FBI investigation. ´No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly,´ Trump protested. ´You can´t let them get you down. You can´t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams,´ the president said.

President Trump focused on his own hardships since taking office during his commencement address Wednesday at the United States Coast Guard Academy, saying, "No politician in history — and I say this with great surety — has been treated worse or more unfairly." History is very long, and despite Trump´s "surety," from the Assyrian King Sennacherib — who was murdered by his sons — to the Roman Emperor Caracala — who was fatally stabbed by one of his soldiers while urinating along a roadside — the past is replete with stories of politicians who had it rougher than Trump. But,

Several raids by federal and local authorities across Los Angeles on Wednesday led to the arrests of 44 MS-13 gang members, including murderers, CNN reported. The series of 50 raids occurred before dawn and were led by ATF agents and 1,000 other officers who have been working on the case for around three years. More than half of the 44 gang members arrested were undocumented immigrants, while three members are currently on the run. The gang members will face charges that include federal racketeering and murder. CNN added that seven people pulled from one raid site were victims of human

President Trump has a long history of action that almost all media and political opposition seem to ignore when trying to attack him. Every effort to “get” Trump fails due to a key flaw in their approach; a flaw they can never overcome. President Trump approaches his opposition in politics similarly to his opposition in business, with one key and consequential difference. In business opponents challenge goals based on financial ends; in politics opponents challenge based on intent or motive. (Photos) The reason no attacks stick to Trump as a candidate, or now to Trump as a president, is because

President Trump will interview four candidates for FBI director — including former independent senator Joe Lieberman and the acting head of the bureau, Andrew McCabe — White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Wednesday. Trump will also meet with Frank Keating, a former Oklahoma governor, and Richard McFeely, a former top FBI agent, Spicer said during a briefing on Air Force One as Trump returned to Washington after speaking at the US Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut.

Speaking at the Coast Guard Academy’s Commencement today, President Trump complained about his treatment by the press and others: [N]o politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly. If we assume he is talking about American politicians, that is a true statement. The Democratic Party has never accepted the result of last year’s election. Democrats in the federal bureaucracy are leaking stories (sometimes false ones) to Democrats at the Washington Post, the New York Times and the Associated Press.

Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Ill., is filing a bill on Wednesday to ban former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill., from collecting about $100,000 a year in workers’ compensation — for an unspecified job-related injury — because he was convicted of looting his campaign fund. “We want to make sure that anybody convicted of a crime, be that Congressman Jackson or any member of Congress, is not able to submit a claim for workers’ compensation at the same time,” Davis told the Chicago Sun-Times.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced Wednesday that it has arrested more than 400 individuals per day since President Trump signed executive orders calling for tougher immigration policies. Between Jan. 22 and April 29, the immigration enforcement agency arrested 41,318 individuals on civil immigration charges, 75 percent of whom were convicted criminals, after Trump signed immigration-related executive orders in January. That number represents a 37.6 percent increase from the same period in 2016.

Neither the Democrat Party nor the Republican Party are popular with Americans, but a new Gallup Poll indicates that the rating for Democrats has slipped five points since November, while the low rating for the Republican Party remained about the same. The May 3-7 Gallup poll asked Americans whether they have a favorable or an unfavorable opinion of each party. Forty percent of Americans said they view Democratic Party favorably, down from 45 percent in November. The Republican rating dropped one point, to 39 percent this month from 40 percent in November.

Washington - It has been almost a year since Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was murdered in the nation´s capital. There have been no solid answers about why he was killed until now. Rich was shot and killed last July in Northwest D.C and police have suggested the killing in the District´s Bloomingdale neighborhood was a botched robbery. However, online conspiracy theories have tied the murder to Rich´s work at the DNC. Just two months shy of the one-year anniversary of Rich´s death, FOX 5 has learned there is new information that could prove these theorists right. Rod Wheeler,

Cool, even-keeled, no-drama Barack Obama is one of the few people in the country who hasn’t publicly opined on the tweets and turmoil wrought by President Trump. And so a persistent question to those close to the former president is: What does Obama really think of the man now occupying the Oval Office? “He’s nothing but a bullsh–ter,” Obama told two friends early last November, describing an election night phone call with Trump, in which the businessman suddenly professed his “respect” and “admiration” for Obama—after years of hectoring.

At certain times Donald Trump has seemed like a budding authoritarian, a corrupt Nixon, a rabble-rousing populist or a big business corporatist. But as Trump has settled into his White House role, he has given a series of long interviews, and when you study the transcripts it becomes clear that fundamentally he is none of these things. At base, Trump is an infantalist. There are three tasks that most mature adults have sort of figured out by the time they hit 25. Trump has mastered none of them. Immaturity is becoming the dominant note of his presidency, lack of self-control his leitmotif.
