(National Sentinel) Fake News: If CNN is somehow considered to be the ‘gold standard’ of the media, it’s no wonder a) no one watches the network; and b) few Americans trust the press anymore.
CNN has single-handedly been responsible for more fake news in the era of POTUS Donald Trump that the network should have been sued out of existence by now. The irresponsible manner in which its reporters and network personalities toss around allegations against the president would have serious legal repercussions were they directed at ordinary Americans who could take the network to court for libel on a daily basis.
The latest lie comes from Chris Cillizza regarding a comment POTUS made about the wacko suggestion that the FBI should be investigating claims that Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted Christine Blasey Ford 36 years ago…at some party…somewhere…at some time.
Cillizza is claiming that POTUS Trump waived the FBI off the case — as if the FBI would have ever been on this kind of case in the first place (Hint: The FBI does not investigate local crimes of this nature and has already said, twice, the bureau won’t be investigating Ford’s allegations).
No big deal: Just the president telling the FBI to ignore an allegation of sexual assault https://t.co/lvO8w9ccOm

Cillizza’s lie is deceptive in two ways.
The worst part of Cillizza’s lie, though, is that if you look at Trump ‘s precise words, he actually said he would support the FBI had they decided to get involved — which is the exact opposite of “telling the FBI to ignore” the matter.
“I don’t think the FBI really should be involved because they don’t want to be involved,” Trump said, adding, “if they wanted to be I would certainly do that, but as you know they say this is not really their thing.”
Cillizza is deliberately lying; deliberately deceiving the public with fake news.
Once upon a time a respected news network would have immediately fired one of its hosts or correspondents for lying so blatantly.
These days it seems as though engaging in journalistic malpractice is a requirement at CNN.
By the way, Ford has refused to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee at the urging of its chairman, Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, and most other Republicans on the panel. The president has also encouraged her to appear so they can hear her side of the story straight from her mouth.
“Ford had said she wanted to tell her story, but she is now aligning herself with Democrats who appear to be using the demand for an FBI investigation that is not going to happen as a means to stall the vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination until after the midterms,” Nolte wrote. “If Democrats take back the Senate next year, they will kill Kavanaugh’s nomination and anyone else Trump were to nominate in his place.”
Former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova said Tuesday Ford isn’t going to testify because she’s a “loon” who is helping Democrats stall Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
