NBC and CNN have lied to Americans for years. Now, they could finally be paying the piper.
Senator Richard Burr has made a dire and long-awaited warning to the MSM, declaring that liberal news networks could be left with “egg” on their faces following a new Senate investigation into Fake News.
More from The Daily Caller:
The chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Thursday that some news outlets will be left “with egg on their face” over their reporting on the Russia investigation.
North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr issued the warning in an interview with CNN. He had been asked to respond to a tweet from President Trump calling on the committee to look into “Fake News Networks” in order to “see why so much of our news is just made up.”
“FAKE!” Trump wrote on Twitter.
That tweet was an apparent response to a status update provided by Burr and Senate Intelligence Committee vice-chairman Mark Warner on Wednesday regarding the panel’s investigation into Russian interference in the presidential campaign.
Burr made news by saying that the committee is still looking into whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government. But implicit in his statement is that the committee, which opened its investigation in January, has still not found evidence of collusion. Burr also said that the committee has still not been able to determine whether the infamous Trump dossier — the main source of the allegations about collusion — is credible.
In his remarks on Thursday, Burr did not say which news outlets have given inaccurate coverage of the Russia probe. But he said that the outlets will be held “accountable.”
“If, in fact, we find that news organizations have not covered it factually, I think that you’ll see that in our report,” Burr told CNN.
