What happened to ‘Facts First’? Seems like CNN decided to put that on hold while ‘reporting’ on James Comey’s book.
I’m old enough to remember when the Democrats and the Media (D) — but I repeat myself — were lauding the FBI and James Comey when they cleared Hillary of any charges.
I also recall the Democrats and the Media (D) vilifying James Comey for ‘his role’ in Hillary’s election loss by mentioning that more classified documents were found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop.
They had called for Comey’s head — or at least that he was fired.
But then he was fired and it was suddenly a ‘threat to democracy’.
But now, Jim Comey is a disgruntled employee angry about being fired by President Trump.
Time to switch positions again because Jim Comey is now an American Hero.
Because he’s stickin’ it to the man. And that man happens to be Donald J. Trump.
And, the best part — the ‘Pee-pee tapes’ might be real!
This must’ve made CNN absolutely giddy.
Those unverified, salacious rumors about Russian prostitutes urinating on each other on the bed in the Presidential Suite of the Ritz Carleton in Moscow might just be a fact — perhaps.
I mean, they’re all saving up their birthday wishes and putting it as the top item in their letters to Santa.
After all, they’re serious journalists.
Just look at Anderson Cooper’s face in this report:
The ridiculous claim hasn’t been verified, but that’s not going to stop CNN this time.
Last time, if you recall, they allowed Buzzfeed to take the heat while they reported on Buzzfeed reporting on it. That’s how they got their Forever Name of ‘Fake News’ from President Trump.
I guess if you’ve got the name already, what’s it gonna hurt to live up to it?
CNN referred to the ‘Pee Tapes’ a whopping 77 times in 5 days.
CNN anchors were positively gushing about it.
NewsBusters calls out CNN on their yellow journalism that featured a steady stream of coverage of the lurid accusation.
Intrepid NewsBusters analysts examined transcripts of all CNN broadcasts that aired between April 12 and April 16, finding 77 separate mentions of the absurd claim. The cable network feverishly replayed a clip of Comey repeating the allegation to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, which constituted 28 of those instances. April 13 featured a particularly steady stream of mentions: 48 in one day, for an average of one every 30 minutes.
For the purpose of this study, a mention was defined as any allusion to the most graphic aspect of the rumor. Thus a clip in which James Comey merely mentioned Russian prostitutes would not have factored into the study. Rather, analysts looked only for phrases such as “prostitutes urinating on each other,” “the pee tape,” and, of course, “golden showers.”
Thanks, ‘Most Trusted Name In Fake News’!
This comes just a couple of months after the moral and intellectual superiors over at CNN repeated the word ‘sh-thole’ on air 195 times in one day.
Which was also an unverified story that reflected badly on President Trump.
Perhaps they’re going for a record or something.
How many times can you say something offensive while it’s still unverified?
Apparently, a lot when you’re on-air 24/7.
On Jake Tapper’s show, Rick Santorum gave the most scathing assessment of Jim Comey’s new book.

It’s not a tell-all book, it’s more of a ‘tell-nothing’ book.
I can see parallels with Comey’s book of 300-plus pages of nada — which would have been better titled 50 Shades of Nothing — and CNN breathlessly reporting on non-scandals ad infinitum.
That certainly explains their ratings, don’t you think?

What Jim Acosta, Rachel Maddow and the Rest of The Media (D) STILL haven’t figured out yet is why we call them ‘Fake News’.
Let’s spell it out for them. In a shirt.
Because you know they won’t be able to figure it out on their own.
There’s a ladies’ version…
And a men’s version…
The problem isn’t just the lies they tell…
It’s the truth they DON’T tell…
And the opinions laced right through them.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
