CNN is having a bad day.... strike that, they are having a very, very a bad month if their ratings are anything to go by as the numbers for the week of June 5, 2017, they didn't even make the top five 'Basic Cable Top 5 – Prime time (Total Viewers)' and came in number 4 out of five in 'Basic Cable Top 5 – Total Day (Total Viewers)', behind Fox News, Nickelodeon, and MSNBC.
From their own voter panel survey backfire on June 8, 2017, to their public challenge to President Trump to provide proof of MSM "fake news", which the Daily Caller was only to happy to do in an article in response to that challenge, to their most recent "unscientific" online survey (meaning they could not weight the demographics to skewer the poll results for results they want), they are seeing backfire after backfire in their attempts to "spin" their liberal bias.
On June 8, 2017, CNN's National Correspondent Gary Tuchman went to Ohio to watch the Senate testimony of former FBI director James Comey, then pulled nine Trump voters from the group to ask them some very leading questions, including whether they believed Comey lied (4 raised their hands), whether they believed President Trump lied (0 raised their hands), then made the mistake of asking why some panelists didn't raise their hands.
The answer wasn't what CNN expected as the female respondent looked right at him and said "Well, first of all, things can be distorted and appear like lies," then continued on to pointedly remark "And I think maybe the media might have distorted some things and now we’re not getting both sides."
On June 13, 2017, President Trump tweeted "Fake News is at an all time high. Where is their apology to me for all of the incorrect stories???" CNN's Chris Cillizza threw down the gauntlet by responding with "Name a story that is "fake" or "incorrect." You can't just make a blanket assertion without ANY specifics."
The Daily Caller pick up the gauntlet and hammered CNN and Cillizza over the head with it by highlighting some of the biggest "fake news" stories from CNN's "CNN Reports Hands Up, Don’t Shoot," meme which later turned out to be a big lie, to CNN Falsely Claims Sherelle Smith Was ‘Calling For Peace’, when she was actually calling for protesters to take the violence into the suburbs of the city, to CNN Says It’s Illegal To Look At Wikileaks, to CNN Says Rape Is Pre-Existing Condition Under ACHA, and their final of the top five "fake news" stories from CNN, is listed as the one mentioned above where they falsely reported that Comey would refute President Trump.
While the DC highlighted just the fake news from CNN, another Twitter user responded to Cillizza with a laundry list of fake news stories from the MSM in general.
In the words of Julia Roberts from the movie Pretty Woman, "Big Mistake. Big. Huge!
CNN MASSIVE FAIL #3
Today, CNN once again fails spectacularly, not in producing fake news, but doing what they call an "unscientific" online survey, assuming that most voters would be CNN audience members as they clearly state at the bottom of the results page "Come back Sunday to read how the CNN audience voted."
The question of the survey is "Should Trump investigated for obstruction of justice." They offer only two options, a "Yes" or a "No."
As of right now, Sunday, June 18, 2017, at 11:27 AM ET, with 1,325,062 total votes, over 75 percent of respondents said "No." he should not be investigated for obstruction. It appears that even CNN viewers are sick and tired of the constant witch hunts, which have ranged from "Trump/Collusion with Russia" and then when that failed to produce any evidence to support it, they are now screaming for an investigation into obstruction.
When Donald Trump famously pointed to a CNN reporter and called them "Fake News," he wasn't just highlighting their bias, he was spotlighting the relentless amount of actual fake news coming from the MSM these days, as it had been for the year prior to the election and it appears from the panel respondent pointing out how the media "distorts" the news, to social media users keeping track of all the fake news stories, to poll respondents weary and tired of the media's ongoing war against President Trump, that CNN is leading the MSM pack into extinction.
Last but not least, the Russia Today video below, highlights even more "fake news" using "unnamed sources" after discussing the recent warning from the DOJ about using caution and being skeptical on any reports using anonymous sources.
Sad that a Russian outlet is the only ones honest enough to highlight the fake news from the American MSM.
