National Media Just Can’t Stop Themselves From Reporting Fake News
The Most Trusted Name in News, CNN spent 12 straight minutes on air Friday, hyping an exclusive report that seemed to prove that WikiLeaks, last September, had secretly offered the Trump campaign, even Donald Trump himself, special access to the Democratic National Committee emails BEFORE they were published on the internet. Trump & Russia? Russia & Trump? CNN was absolutely giddy!
The story said CNN had exclusively obtained and had in its possession an email that was sent by someone named “Michael J. Erickson” who nobody knows, to Donald Trump Jr., offering a decryption key and access to DNC emails that WikiLeaks had “uploaded.” The email was a “smoking gun,” because it was dated September 4, 10 days BEFORE WikiLeaks began promoting access to those emails online — and thus proved that the Trump family was being offered special access to the DNC archive: likely by WikiLeaks and of course, the Kremlin.
There was just one small problem with this story: It was fundamentally false, The small detail of the date. The email was not dated September 4th but September 14th, which means it was sent AFTER WikiLeaks had already published access to the DNC emails online. So, rather than giving some sort of special access to Trump, “Michael J. Erickson” was simply some person from the public telling the Trump family to look at the DNC emails from WikiLeaks — as everyone by then already knew.
Of course, MSNBC and CBS were all minutes behind regurgitating the same story, Later that night they were all blaming each other and CNN never told anyone what really went wrong with the story on “Most Trusted Name In News.”
This was just one of many fraudulent stories last week by the national media. Brian Ross, has been ordered by its employer CBS, to not report on Donald Trump anymore. Obviously, They can not trust their own reporter from not delivering “False News” on the President. Seems to be contagious in the National Media these days.
