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

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.

Left-wing violence is not violence to the left. Rioting, looting, fighting back against cops – those people are the real patriots, they’ll say. But when a group of supposed conservatives are literally invited by cops into the Capitol building in Washington DC, it’s insurrection! Check out what happened on Friday near Seattle. Did you hear about any of this on the news? From KIRO7: BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Protestors broke into City Hall in Bellingham on Friday, forcing the mayor to be escorted out of the building for safety. Mayor Seth Fleetwood said it is impossible to ignore the parallels to the storming of the Washington D.C. Capitol Building on Jan. 6. CONTINUED: “It was unsettling,” Fleetwood said. “They banged on the door and we got word they had somehow broken it open and were entering, and I was advised to leave,” he said. Fleetwood said he was ushered out a back door and driven away from the building to his car.

Pro-Choice Protesters Storm Catholic Church In Middle of Mass, Call for Abortion On-Demand

Is there even a word for this kind of depravity?

“Two, four, six, eight this church teaches hate!” That’s what these crazed radicals chanted when they stormed into a Catholic Church like a pack of imbeciles. Considering Joe Biden is a “devout Catholic” – LOL – he’ll surely have something to say, right? This is not a story you’ll see on news broadcasts tonight. From Catholic News Agency: “Fund abortion, not cops,” said one of their signs. “Abortion on Demand. End Hyde Now,” said another, apparently referring to the Hyde Amendment, which bans most federal funding for abortion. At least two protesters wore vests that read “clinic escort” on the back. Police and church officials escorted the protestors outside, where some protesters appeared to make obscene gestures at them, according to video from The Columbus Dispatch. Friday marked the 48th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, which mandated permissive abortion laws nationwide.
