CNN actually used image from 'Fallout 4' video game for story on "Russian hacking"

StaffRebel Columnist

CNN just can't seem to get away from fake news. The news network actually used an image from the popular video game series Fallout during a segment on Russia being punished for its alleged hacking.

Gamers on Reddit who watch CNN were among the first to notice this gaffe. As a result, the liberal TV station has been mocked by many, including YouTube commentator Mark Dice.

This isn't the fist time video game footage has been used out of place. North Korea infamously used footage from Call of Duty to hype nuclear capabilities.

The interview with Assange last night on Hannity was worth the watch. Assange is very careful at being neutral. He may have personal leanings one way or the other but he does his best to keep them out of the conversation. He made it clear the conversation should be about the facts he released. Let the public read and decide.

CNN is as corrupt as they get, what is even more unfortunate is now there are many more of them in league with each other to corrupt on a larger scale.

I hate CNN!! Can’t even watch it any more. Once they got rid of Lou Dobbs, it was a turning point for them.

It was the Russians who did this to Don Lemon….they either hacked the olives or the ‘lemons’!! They wouldn’t touch the vodka.

This is an example of people who lie for a living and then realize they’re going to be sacked; hopefully.
Don Lemon is the most amateurish, unknowledgeable, unprofessional, self-centered jerk on CNN. Even Anderson was uncomfortable.

Things are playing out as expected. Obama and the Democrats are at desperation levels employing their sycophants in the media to try and provoke some kind of crisis to allow Hussein to nullify the election and keep himself, or his choice, Killary in power. Will it work? An educated guess says no, given that the electorate saw the writing on the wall and rejected Killary!

Well, Fallout 4 is a pretty kick ass game, it must be conceded ….

I was stunned to learn over the holidays, damn well knowing the Russian hacking is fake news, that Obama launched sanctions against Russia. I imagine he did it to add legitimacy to the claims. I mean what kind of nut would start sanctions with the second largest nuclear power if the hacking claims were false? Well, this nut did. With 17 days to go lets pray this fool doesn’t do anything else this stupid. The Russian response was awesome. I’m going to post it here because it is some classic stuff:

“They are once again trying to frighten us with the widening of anti-Russian sanctions, with measures of ‘diplomatic nature,’ and even with the sabotage of our computer systems…Frankly, we are sick and tired of the outright lies about ‘Russian hackers’ that continue to pour down in the United States from the very top. The Obama Administration launched this disinformation half a year ago in an attempt to support the position of their desired candidate for the November Presidential elections. Having not achieved their desired outcome, now they are looking for the justification of their failure and, doubling their efforts, they are taking revenge on the Russian-American relations.

“Sooner or later, the truth about this campaign will eventually come out, and it is happening already. On December 8, American media reported that the Secretary of State of Georgia, Brian Kemp, made it known that local officials tracked the hack that attacked his electronic vote-counting system soon after the elections. The traces led to a computer address within the Department of Homeland Security of the United States. What else we can talk about here? About the fact that this [revelation] was covered with the flood of the new accusations that had not a single evidence?

“It must be made crystal clear for people [who are] in the White House now that if Washington will implement new hostile steps then it will get the [appropriate] answer [from Russia]. It concerns all the acts against Russian diplomatic representatives in the US and will immediately bounce against the American diplomats in Russia. [The] Obama administration, probably, does not care what will happen with bilateral relations with Russia, but it is unlikely that history will forgive the attitude based on the principle ‘let there be even flood after we are gone.’

And I say how pathetic… This is a brand-new low even for the left.!!
There is a book that was published somewhere is around the turn of the 19th century, it’s called.
-nine meals to anarchy.
It thoroughly explains the psychology behind mob mentality and what motivates people.!!

They used to be the Clinton News Network. Now they’re called the Counterfeit News Network.

So is FaceBook highlighting this as “Fake News”?

For that matter, where was CNN in 2014 when the White House was hacked, or when the Chinese stole all the personal data of every American who had classified access? Apparently that wasn’t very important for CNN or the Obama administration

But don’t you people understand??

Lefties are allowed to create fake news and lie in any way they want so long as it serves their purpose.

Just like Muslims are allowed to lie to the infidels, the very fact that it serves their purpose automatically makes the lies and fake news justified, pure, righteous and holy!

Gotta fight those evil Republicans/Conservatives … and that evil PM elect Trump … in any way possible.

I may be sarcastic, but there really are socialists that think that way.

The last time I watched CNN was US Election night when that big stupid idiot Van Jones stood up and started yelling and screaming at the Republicans for liking Trump. I was hoping someone would stand up and break his jaw.

I like that…C.N.N., The Counterfeit News Network. I guess the Canadian subsidiary is the C.B.C., The Counterfeit Broadcasting Corporation.

Mind you, I still like think of C.B.C. as the Corrupt Broadcasting Corporation, propaganda arm of the L.P.C., Lying Party of Corruption.
