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

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.

Here’s a story you don’t see all the time…or ever. Then again, this is the year 2020 – anything goes. If you’re a history buff, here’s your break from politics for a few minutes. Check this out, via News & Observer: The historic Cape Hatteras Light Station grounds were closed Thursday after a bomb appeared in the surf at Buxton on the Outer Banks, according to the National Park Service. A half-mile safety perimeter was established to keep tourists out, including the lighthouse grounds, nearby parking lots and surrounding beach, officials said in a release. The iconic lighthouse, with its famous black and white stripes, dates to 1870. “After careful examination, a U.S. Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) unit from Norfolk, Virginia, confirmed that the object … is a live military ordnance,” the National Park Service said in an update Thursday night.

Trump Was A Longtime Presbyterian, Now He Says He Is Non-Denominational Christian

Doin’ things his way…

From New York Post: President Trump, who has long identified as a Presbyterian, now considers himself a non-denominational Christian, a new report said. The president shared his change in religious identity in a written interview with the Religious News Service. “Though I was confirmed at a Presbyterian church as a child, I now consider myself to be a non-denominational Christian,” Trump wrote, without giving an explanation for the transformation or saying when it occurred. Because everything is so PC and everybody is afraid of saying the wrong thing, free speech is at an all-time low. People are getting fired from their jobs, even expelled from school. At the end of the day, this proves that the left is winning. And it has to stop.
