Lanny Davis Confesses He Fibbed Trump Tower Story. CNN Still Refuses to Back Down.

Published

CNN

The phrase “fake news” was originally created by the mainstream media in reference to conservative news outlets who they blamed for Hillary Clinton’s loss in the 2016 presidential election, however, President Trump has officially stolen the phrase and adopted it as his own, along with his followers.

The truth of the matter is, had the mainstream media been concerned about journalistic integrity from the get-go, examining themselves for indiscretions, perhaps they wouldn’t find themselves topping the list of enemies hated by the general public?

The latest example of this sort of shenanigans comes to us, once again, courtesy of CNN, who is continuing to push a story despite the fact the source of said story admitting he made the whole thing up.

It turns out that a CNN story from July 26, 2018 claiming just that was supplied by Lanny Davis, the Clinton-associated lawyer for Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal fixer — a man who just flipped on Trump to the FBI, implicating Trump in campaign finance violations. CNN says it stands by the story. Davis, however, told The Washington Post this week, “I should have been more clear — including with you — that I could not independently confirm what happened. I regret my error.” Davis then told Anderson Cooper, “I think the reporting of the story got mixed up in the course of a criminal investigation. We were not the source of the story.” The CNN story originally said Davis offered no comment. CNN, however, said, “We stand by our story, and are confident in our reporting of it.”

CNN’s original story rocketed around the media, with “confirming” stories following from NBC News and The Washington Post, among others. According to BuzzFeed News, Davis was the confirming source for all of that.

These admissions follow another from Davis regarding a claim that Trump knew beforehand about the hacking of Democratic emails by the Russians. “I am not sure,” Davis now says. “There’s a possibility that is the case. But I am not sure.”

All of which should call into serious question Davis’ credibility. And CNN’s, if they don’t have any additional information. According to BuzzFeed News:

The network, in effect, doesn’t appear to believe it made a mistake — the story was, some inside CNN argue, carefully worded to hedge against those in the Cohen camp changing their tune. In other words, the story reports claims that Cohen had said he was willing to make, not the underlying truth of those claims.

The decision from CNN to continue to stand by the story suggests that it believes the strength of its other sources outweighs any waffling from Davis — or that the network believes Davis was telling the truth then, and not now. But Davis’s new statement that he was a source for a story he now refutes raises questions about what action, if any, the network might take.

“We should address Lanny Davis’s comments in our reporting and be more transparent with our readers about our reporting,” one CNN staffer told BuzzFeed News.

The mainstream media today has become nothing more than a propaganda arm for the Democratic Party. They are not concerned with keeping the public informed of the facts and holding political figures accountable for their actions or lack thereof.

No, all that matters now is pushing the left-wing agenda down the throats of the average American voter. It’s tragic how far the media has fallen from their original intended purpose.

DC Mayor Now Bribing Children to Get Vaccine with Gift Cards, AirPods

Unbelievable.

Published

on

The Biden Administration is coming to a startling realization in recent weeks, as the number of folks who aren’t vaccinated approaches the number of folks who won’t be vaccinated. As it stands today, about half to the nation is inoculated, with the other half largely unwilling to go down that road.  In order to reach herd immunity, experts suggest that as many as 70% of us will need to have COVID antibodies – a fact that has prompted a number of municipalities to work up programs to entice Americans to get the jab. In DC, they are now targeting children with these incentives. Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Thursday the city will offer cash and goodies to children from August 7 as gifts for those who receive their first shot of the coronavirus vaccine. Bowser previewed the August reward program saying, “All DC youth can claim their free COVID-19 [Chinese coronavirus] vaccine” at three locations in D.C., adding the “youth can receive a $51 VISA gift card.” Additional prizes will see, “The first 400 youth to get vaccinated at each site will have the option to forgo their gift card and instead receive a pair of AirPods.” And the parents are being targeted as well. She revealed other enticements, saying “parents/guardians will also get one $51 VISA gift card,” adding the gift cards are “per child vaccinated,” which could be lucrative for families with multiple children. The announcement comes on the heels of a similar bribe by NYC officials who offered $100 to anyone willing to get the jab.

Delta Info Leaked: CDC Says It’s More Transmissible Than Smallpox

That can’t be good.

Published

We are now in month 17 of our “2-week lockdown”.  You remember?  The one that was meant to “flatten the curve” two St. Patrick’s Days ago. So, nearly a year-and-a-half later, we are now dealing with something called the “delta” variant, and a return to the masks and restrictions that marred society during the early days of the pandemic. The CDC’s guidance on the matter changed abruptly this week, drawing a great deal of criticism from Americans the nation over.  Now, a leaked document appears to show why the organization changed their tune. The Delta variant is much more contagious, more likely to break through protections afforded by the vaccines and may cause more severe disease than all other known versions of the virus, according to an internal presentation circulated within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, the director of the agency, acknowledged on Tuesday that vaccinated people with so-called breakthrough infections of the Delta variant carry just as much virus in the nose and throat as unvaccinated people, and may spread it just as readily, if less often. And, when compared to other infamous outbreaks, “delta” holds its own. The Delta variant is moretransmissible than the viruses that cause MERS, SARS, Ebola, the common cold, the seasonal flu and smallpox, and it is as contagious as chickenpox, according to the document, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times. The immediate next step for the agency is to “acknowledge the war has changed,” the document said. Its contents were first reported by The Washington Post on Thursday evening. The news comes just a children the nation over are preparing to head back to the classroom, and with cooler, drier weather just around the corner to drive some of us back indoors.
