UPDATED! CNN, the most duplicitous name in news; speaking nonsense to power.

UPDATE!  CNN To Air Documentary On Trump-Russia ‘Connection’ Tonight Starring John Podesta…  "CNN will host a special documentary, “The Russian Connection: Inside the Attack on Democracy,” reported by CNN chief national security correspondent Jim Sciutto on Tuesday night." I can visualize the CNN countdown clock now...

Political Cartoons by Bob Gorrell

" . . .the network was just catering to what its leftist viewers want to hear:

CNN Fake News, living up to its name  "Caught in the act.
Project Veritas, the undercover news group devoted to exposing how the establishment really thinks, got a CNN producer on camera to admit that the news network's coverage of the phony Trump colluded with Russia story is a cynical effort to whip up ratings, a false narrative promoted to make money, not a bid to report the news as a first draft of history.
"Hence its wall-to-wall coverage of the Democrats' Russia narrative, despite there being no there there.  CNN has mentioned Russia 60,000 times since President Trump was inaugurated.
"Here's the thinking behind the obsession that has occupied a huge part of the Trump presidency:

. . . "So what can be said is going on?  CNN is no longer a news network – it's more a whip-up-the-left operation, to make leftists feel good about their crazed anti-Trump suspicions.  It's ratings-driven, not news-driven.  And it's interfering with what President Trump was put into office by voters to do." . . .

Trump Effect? Poll Shows CNN Brand Plummeting

Some accountability at CNN at last?  . . . "With another CNN supervising producer, John Bonifield, now probably in the hot seat for pointing out that the Russia narrative has been fake, it's worth noting that he too may be done in by Project Veritas, an activist journalism group.  It goes to show that competition tends to make news agencies honest, and the advance of the internet has created lots of new news outlets and rivals.

"It's good to see accountability showing up, whatever the reason.  News agencies seem to know that their credibility is on the line and are taking steps to preserve it.  After years of playing lapdog media to President Obama, this could not be more welcome as a development."
 "So I'm wondering if you think that they're uninformed, out of touch, or irresponsible?" CNN's White House correspondent Dan Lothian asked President Obama in Hawaii."

"After thinking a second – probably wondering how fortunate he is to have such an unapologetic shill in the audience – Obama responded, “That’s a multiple choice question, isn’t it?”
"And this is the type of hard-nosed journalist the supposedly most trusted name in news has as a White House correspondent."
