UNREAL! Jake Tapper: CNN Didn’t Get ‘Anything’ Wrong in Trump-Russia Collusion Reporting (VIDEO)
This is unreal!
Jake Tapper, the fake news king at CNN said on Sunday that his network didn’t get anything wrong in their 3 years of Russiagate reporting despite the fact that CNN was forced to make several embarrassing corrections and retractions on their Trump-Russia stories.
“I’m not sure what you’re saying the media got wrong. The media reported the investigation was going on. Other than the people in the media on the left, not on this network, I don’t know anybody that got anything wrong,” Jake Tapper said to Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney on Sunday.
“We didn’t say there was a conspiracy. We said Mueller was investigating a conspiracy,” Tapper added.
“That’s fine, if that’s your recollection of history, that’s great. Face it, the media got this wrong. It’s okay. People get stuff wrong all the time, just not at this level,” Mulvaney said.
Jake Tapper can deny all he wants, but here are the cold, hard facts:
CNN fired three journalists (forced them to resign), including the executive editor in charge of a new investigative unit in June of 2017 after a publication of a fake news Russia article.
The story, which reported that Congress was investigating a “Russian investment fund with ties to Trump officials,” cited a single anonymous source.
CNN falsely reported in December of 2017 that Donald Trump Jr. had received an email on September 4, 2016 with information about WikiLeaks that was not available to the public yet — that turned out to be a HUGE LIE. CNN’s ‘sources’ gave them the wrong date. It turns out that Donald Trump Jr. received the email on September 14, 2016 which was one day after the WikiLeaks information was already made public.
CNN’s Gloria Borger and Jake Tapper also falsely reported in June of 2017 that James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claims that Comey told him he was not under FBI investigation — that turned out to be a HUGE LIE — CNN was forced to make an embarrassing correction.
A recent bungled Trump-Russia story on CNN involved none other than sewer-dwelling Clinton-fixer-turned-Michael Cohen’s-lawyer, Lanny Davis.
In August, Michael Cohen’s lawyer Lanny Davis admitted he lied to the media when he claimed he confirmed a CNN report with anonymous sources about President Trump’s foreknowledge of the infamous Trump Tower meeting in June of 2016.
In July, CNN rolled out another story using anonymous sources wherein they reported Michael Cohen claimed Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting with Veselnitskaya in advance.
This dumpster fire of an article was published just a couple weeks after Cohen hired Lanny Davis to be his lawyer.
CNN was giddy to report that Cohen’s information contradicted Don Jr.’s previous testimony to the Senate Intel Panel and repeated denials his father knew about the meeting — the story turned out to be false.
As usual, CNN was reporting fake news and curiously Lanny Davis himself confirmed to being one of the anonymous sources at the time it was published
But no one at CNN got anything wrong about the Trump-Russia collusion hoax according to Jake Tapper.
