Earlier this year, President Trump took to Twitter and called the mainstream media “the enemy of the American people.” Needless to say, this statement was one hundred percent accurate, and perfectly summarized the political hostility that the majority of cable news networks have been participating in since the election. Among these networks is CNN, which is easily one of the most politically biased and hateful networks in existence. The majority of the so-called “journalists” that work for CNN aren’t journalists at all; rather, they are nothing more than political hacks that are hellbent on taking down the president of the United States.
In the most recent example of overwhelming liberal propaganda being pushed out across the airwaves by CNN, the left-leaning network published a story connecting Anthony Scaramucci, who served on Donald Trump’s transition team following the 2016 election, to a Russian investment fund. The story has since been retracted, and CNN was forced to apologize for ever publishing the blatantly false hit piece in the first place.
“On June 22, 2017, CNN.com published a story connecting Anthony Scaramucci with investigations into the Russian Direct Investment Fund,” said the statement released by the network. “That story did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted. Links to the story have been disabled. CNN apologizes to Mr. Scaramucci.”
Given CNN’s track record of fake news and anti-Trump propaganda, it’s not much of a stretch to say that the only reason why the network apologized was because they got caught red handed. They knew that failing to retract the story would be a bad PR move, and so in the interest of saving their ratings (which were already poor to begin with), they decided to publicly apologize to Scaramucci and admit that they were in the wrong. Had there not been so much outrage and controversy surrounding the story, CNN likely would have allowed it to continue being spread across the Internet.
But the real issue here has to do with why CNN published this story in the first place. Regardless of the fact that they eventually apologized and retracted the hit piece, what was it that compelled them to publish such a blatantly inaccurate article to begin with? (RELATED: CNN credibility collapses under the weight of the most recent fake news scandal).
The answer, of course, is their deep, uncontrollable hatred for Donald Trump. All throughout the presidential election, congressional Democrats and the mainstream media saw Hillary Clinton as “the chosen one.” To them, there really wasn’t any competition because it was simply her turn to be president. When Donald Trump ended up emerging victorious, it not only threw the liberals into a tailspin, but it also allowed the American people to see the true colors of the progressive left. They are not “kind and compassionate;” they are vengeful and full of hate.
Most people probably remember the shameful and slanderous attack on the President that occurred earlier this year, when CNN essentially colluded with BuzzFeed to push a false 35-page dossier alleging, among other things, that Donald Trump has deep connections with Russian officials. Much like the recently retracted story from CNN, the dossier story was clearly nothing more than an attempt to dismantle the Trump administration and discredit the president of the United States.
President Trump was absolutely correct in saying that the mainstream media is the enemy of the American people. With networks like CNN and even others like MSNBC, CBS and NBC, the public is constantly being fed a never-ending stream of lies and misinformation, which, needless to say, is not healthy for any functioning society. The American people deserve the truth, and it has become blatantly obvious that with CNN, that is not going to happen anytime soon.
