CNN’s latest fake news bombshell just blew up in their face

CNN released what they thought was a bombshell report.

They claimed it showed evidence of Russia, Wikileaks, and the Trump campaign colluding in the 2016 elections.

But their story blew up in their face after this revelation.

Manu Raju, CNN’s Senior Congressional Correspondent, published a report stating that Donald Trump, Jr. had received an email providing a web address and decryption key allowing the campaign to access Democrat National Committee emails hacked by Wikileaks

Only hours later, Raju was forced to go on-air to correct his report.

In fact, Trump, Jr. received the email after the information was made publicly available – nullifying the whole premise of CNN’s fake news story.

The truth is, CNN thought they had the key to finally prove their Trump-Russia collusion narrative, which they have been pushing unsuccessfully for a year.

So CNN rushed to publish a story that was backed by easily disproven evidence provided by two anonymous sources.

Brian Stelter, host of the CNN Sunday show ironically called “Reliable Sources,” took to the airwaves to turn their colossal screw-up into an anti-Trump tirade:

“I asked CNN if there would be disciplinary action against Raju or his co-writer Jeremy Herb. A spokeswoman said, “no, because the reporters followed CNN’s ‘standards process,’ which means that the anonymous sources the reporters used for the story were ok’d and vetted ahead of time.”

Either CNN’s sources are bad, CNN’s reporters are negligent, or they’re willing to print anything that fits into their anti-Trump narrative – true or not.

President Trump called CNN to the carpet in a series of tweets.

Later during Stelter’s “Reliable Sources” program, he hosted a panel of leftwing reporters.

David Frum, Senior Editor of The Atlantic, stated “mistakes are precisely the reason the people should trust the media.”

Instead of calling on journalists to clean up their act, Frum gave his “advice” to readers.
