Donald Trump Jr. Crushes #FakeNews CNN After They Peddle Bogus “Exclusive” Wikileaks Story


As previously reported, both CNN and CBS fell for inaccurate reports alleging a WikiLeaks email was sent to Donald Trump Jr. with an encryption key to access future leaks.

And Donald Trump Jr. responded…

WikiLeaks had actually tweeted a link to the information days before the email reached Trump Jr. inbox. The fake news media claimed this was stone cold proof of collusion, as WikiLeaks has long been smeared as a Kremlin puppet. Disaster!

The conservative media unleashed hell-fire and brimstone on fake news CNN and CBS for yet another bogus ‘Russian collusion’ smoking gun story.

“So CNN misreported the date of the Wikileaks email that @DonaldJTrumpJr received, meaning that the entire point of the story — that the campaign might have gotten advance warning of the leaks — is wrong. Wow,” tweeted Washington Examiner reporter Sarah Westwood.

OAN’s Liz Wheeler hammered CNN and tweeted, “Holy crap. That’s a huge error. Like Brian Ross level huge.”

The Daily Caller humiliated CNN with a viral smackdown that hit the Drudge Report.

Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange also blasted fake news CNN and CBS, calling it another ‘Brian Ross’ moment. OUCH!

Then Donald Trump Jr. moved in with the kill shot.

“I know you can’t help but spread , but now that you know the truth you should have the decency to retract the false story, make the correction, take down the bs tweet, and apologize to the 2 or 3 people that still believe you to be credible

What are the odds that @cnn has the decency to make a full retraction??? You know, a real one, not hidden on their website or with a 3am tweet. I’m guessing slim to none. #fakenews #notholdingmybreath

Don Jr. also slammed fake news CBS, “This is #fakenews and if CBS had any credibility as a media organization they would print a retraction immediately.”

This is how the fake news cycle works today. CNN, CBS, MSNBC, Bloomberg, WaPo, New York Times et al publish a bogus stories which makes its way around the globe several times until they publish a retraction several hours or even a day later that very few people see.

CNN ended up issuing only a correction when they should have issued a complete retraction.

CNN is absolutely pathetic. Don Jr. is right; they owe an apology to the 2-3 people that still believe their b.s.
