CNN caught red-handed delivering fake news on several occasions.

Three examples:

1) Claiming that Ben Carson's going home to Florida was a sign that he was quitting the Primary.

2) Deliberately misquoting a White Supremacist. He was already saying all kinds of stupid fucked up shit. There wasn't a need to lie that he said something, when he didn't say it. If you don't want to listen to all of the bull crap he had to say, just go to the relevant quote in question. It starts 30 seconds into the clip. He was clearly talking about the news media, but CNN said he was talking about Jews.

3) CNN reported that there was a report that claimed that Russia had info that compromised Trump - even though the report had not been verified by the CIA/FBI, etc.

Here's some "vintage" CNN fake news.

CNN, you are fake news.

Well, I'm slightly disheartened to find yet another stereotype disproved. Then again, when you have a country with a 3% obesity rate, it's not hard to find a cute lass who looks slim and healthy, even if you generally wait till your 30's to take advantage of that.

Watch as even that stereotype that Japanese are generally slim and healthy go down the drain too:P.

You could literally hear the applause. Also, since that story broke, the ONLY news agencies that reported on it were Buzzfeed and CNN. No other agency reported on it except to say that it was amazing that CNN and Buzzfeed actually reported on it without verifying if it was true....

So, why are you defending "fake news" agencies?

You lost me. How does this relate to fake news? I don't get it?

My first thought on reading that was this: "Fat people will be fired from their jobs, because the company they work for will end up paying higher taxes, because they're fat...."

I plan on becoming a nutritionist I'd say 10 years down the line. But i fear the un-health culture here in America will mean that there is no demand. At least in Japan, there will be a demand for such a job, even if there is a more then necessary supply of qualified people.


Also, I think that if I did work in America, I'd probably get slim people who are actually concerned about their health, even if they don't need my services. Maybe I'm wrong, maybe I'm fantasizing too much. Meh, I'll find out in 10 years from now.

Yes, they were paid Trump staffers with applause queues. Trump is a reality tv star. This is sort of what he does.

Actually, even Fox News came right out and defended CNN:

So, yeah no. Trump is essentially blaming CNN for Buzzfeed.

You are such a real twister of reality. Why do I even bother to even worry about what you think or say? There is NO WAY TRUMP would have anticipated this scene from occurring and to have planned to have "applauders" on scene, ready for this eventuality. You are just too full of shit.

Dude, he's a showman. Its the one thing you have to give him credit for. Of course he planned to lambaste CNN. Do you seriously think the press were the ones who applauded as he shit on a colleague? Or that the press were the ones that shouted out "No!" when he asked if anyone really thought Hillary Clinton would be tougher on Russia than he would.

Or that is was the press who, and pay attention now, cheered when he deflected a question about his tax returns by saying and I quote:


The only ones who care about my tax returns are the reporters.


You think they cheered "Fuck ya! We're the only ones that care! Woohoo!"?

So you're either trolling ( surprise surprise ) or you're the exact kind of gullible that Trump counts on to be impressed by a table full of blank manila folders and printer paper. And frankly the former is more respectable at this juncture. -.-
