CNN continues to live up to its reputation of being a peddler of fake news that cannot be trusted.
Instead of covering the scandal involving former President Barack Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice, the network decided to launch an attack on Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, pushing for companies to pull their ads from his show.
Apparently, the allegations of sexual harassment against O’Reilly are more important than the reports that Susan Rice leaked, or unmasked, the names of members of President Donald Trump’s team before the 2016 election.
CNN host Don Lemon, spent 30 minutes of his show on Monday night covering the sexual harassment allegations.
On Tuesday, the ultra-liberal host did mention the Susan Rice issue, but only in a negative light. He said that the president’s initial claim about being wiretapped was false, and in the time since Trump made the accusation, Trump and the White House are “still trying to make a lie true.”
Lemon went on to say that he would not insult the intelligence of his viewers by aiding and abetting “the people who are trying to misinform you” with a “diversion,” which, of course, would be the Rice story.
Take a look:
But the real diversion here is the O’Reilly story — and the liberal media’s attacks on one of the American right’s most famous figures.
Not to imply that sexual harassment allegations aren’t serious, but to focus on them so heavily while ignoring disturbing allegations that former President Barack Obama used the power of the federal government to spy on a political opponent is not fairly representing news.
Moreover, since Rice’s role in the scandal came to light, her story has changed from at first knowing nothing about leaks to now maintaining that she did nothing improper.
That’s a big difference, and if CNN were seriously concerned with actual news, it would be covering it honestly.
However, Lemon, CNN personality and former Obama “special adviser” Van Jones and the rest of the CNN crew have demonstrated they are not interested in real news. In fact, they have resorted to ignoring it, burying it and claiming it is fake in an attempt to squash it.
CNN staffers and executives should be ashamed of themselves for trying to convince the world they are a news outlet. Over the years, they have morphed into a channel that only strives to satisfy a liberal audience.
