The Clinton News Network is not moving towards giving Trump a fair shake. In fact, Jake Tapper’s recent defense of the POTUS on Israel might have been a total fluke.
A CNN reporter has been pegged by fact-checkers yet again after saying that “anti-Trump Republicans” funded the phony Trump-Russia dossier.
It is now common knowledge on both sides that Republicans did opposition research on each other via Fusion GPS during the primary, but neither side approached any spies to go to Russia and collude with other spies there to come up with a fake basis for challenging an election result.
THAT part was all the Democrats. Pretty newsworthy, wouldn’t you say? Yet CNN keeps lying, and lying, and lying about it.
More from Daily Caller:
CNN justice correspondent Evan Perez falsely told his network’s viewers on Tuesday that anti-Trump Republicans first funded the infamous Trump-Russia dossier, much of which remains unverified. Perez was responding to a tweet from President Donald Trump, who called the dossier a “pile of garbage.” Perez has close ties to the cofounders of Fusion GPS, the firm behind the dossier, which CNN failed to disclose.
“Look, the fact is that the dossier was compiled as part of opposition research, first paid for by Republicans who were opposed to Donald Trump and then later on by Democrats and the Clinton camp, people associated with the Clinton campaign who wanted to try to bring him down,” Perez said.
That “fact” cited by Perez — that anti-Trump Republicans originally funded the dossier — has been ruled “false” by fact-checkers. CNN has repeatedly misinformed its viewers about the dossier’s origins.
Perez’s error on Tuesday is at least the third time that the network has falsely told its audience that Republicans originally funded the dossier.
