[CNN] has just sacrificed its reputation as a news provider by actively altering the news feed it offers in order to favor Hillary Clinton.
CNN, formally known as the “Cable News Network,” needs to rename itself CPN, the “Clinton Propaganda Network.” The pioneer cable broadcaster has just sacrificed its reputation as a news provider by actively altering the news feed it offers in order to favor Hillary Clinton.
Over the weekend, CNN came in for justified criticism for removing the word “bombing” out of Hillary Clinton’s first response to the NY/NJ bombings, in order to sustain the media wave of criticism over Trump using the word “bomb” before the sources of the explosions were identified by authorities. This is a deliberate lie by omission in order to sustain a false propaganda narrative.
Bad as that act was, it is not an lie of commission, but rather of omission. Monday, the propaganda network went the next step and put a highly charged word in Donald Trump’s mouth and “reported” to its viewers that Trump had said it.
Joe Concha reports in The Hill:
CNN added the word "racial" to Donald Trump's Monday comments on terrorism and immigration, and is running headlines reporting that the GOP nominee is advocating "racial profiling".Bad as CNN’s fabrication of a quote was, Fox News invited it:
But a review of the transcript of Trump's comments to Fox News that CNN quoted, however, shows that Trump never put the word "racial" in front of “profiling.” (snip)
CNN has been running headlines throughout the day that specifically quotes Trump as saying "racial profiling…."
…the Fox News excerpts the network sent out Monday evening also framed his quotes as responses to questions about “racial profiling.”But there is a huge difference between a question and an answer.
