All the rats are jumping ship and trying to save some shred of credibility.
They know it’s going to be 8 years of Trump, and they just learned the hard way the making up Fake News about him does not work. It backfired big time.
They also learned that even the FBI Director, James Comey, just got “broken” by Trump when he tried to leak a story about an ongoing investigation.
So what do you do when you have egg all over your face? You kowtow with your head down and try to make amends. That’s basically what happened when CNN ran this story, which I still can’t believe they printed, take a look:
In the lead-up to James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, the mainstream media hyped the event as the “blockbuster” television event of the summer, promising fireworks and ground-shaking revelations.
But once the hearing started, the left’s narrative quickly evaporated.
Instead, the American people witnessed a thorough debunking of the mainstream media’s false reporting and the Democrats’ anti-Trump hysteria.
Their story crumbled as Comey repeatedly confirmed key facts highlighted by President Donald Trump in recent weeks.
Specifically, Comey clearly stated that President Trump was at no point the subject of any FBI investigation. The former FBI Director also made clear that the President never asked for the Russia investigation to be dropped.
These points were so clear that even ultra-liberal MSNBC host Chis Matthews admitted that the Trump-Russia “collusion” narrative “came apart” with Comey’s testimony.
The former FBI director put it simply: “There have been many, many stories based on — well, lots of stuff, but about Russia that are dead wrong.” In an effort to pad their fact-free reporting, the mainstream media has become heavily reliant on anonymous sources, and it speaks volumes that it took a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing with the former FBI director to bring the truth to light.
In fact, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, sought further clarification by pointedly asking about a much-discussed New York Times’ story from February titled “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence.” Comey did not mince words by responding that the Times’ story “was not true” and saying yes when Cotton asked if the article was “almost entirely wrong.” Comey also used Idaho Republican Sen. Jim Risch’s question on the Times’ false reporting as an opportunity to expand on “the challenge” with media reports using classified information and anonymous sourcing. He put it simply: “The people talking about it often don’t really know what’s going on.”
He went on to explain department policy that “those of us who actually know what’s going on are not talking about it. And we don’t call the press to say, ‘Hey, you got that thing wrong about this sensitive topic.’ We just have to leave it there.” This just further underscores the problems this administration has been pointing to all along with using unidentified sources and rumors.
Another line of questioning, this time from Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida on leaks to the press highlighted the agenda of the mainstream media to use leaks to harm the President, but also forced Comey to admit that he himself had leaked damaging information about the President.
Rubio astutely observed “the only thing that’s never been leaked is the fact that the President was not personally under investigation.” Why? Because that didn’t fit the left’s Trump-Russia narrative.
Yes, I know it was printed in their Opinion section, but absolutely stunning CNN would run the story at all. They know if they don’t start telling SOME truth, they’ll be out of business! GO TRUMP!
