Top 4 Reasons CNN Gets Called “Fake News”

Rebel Staff

Recently, CNN host Chris Cuomo stated that being called a fake journalist or a fake news outlet is akin to being called an ethnic slur.

CNN does market themselves as “the Most Trusted Name In News,” so what is it about their coverage that makes people distrust them?

I’ll show you five examples of things they do that has led people to call them “fake news.”

I like the conservative aspect of The Rebel, but it would be a lot better if the bad language wasn’t there. One of my friends commented on Facebook on how they were turned off by it and refuse to purchase a subscription because of it. I’m sure that others feel the same way. The Rebel should show the same level of professionalism as the left wing media that you seek to be an alternative to.

Jay you are a great addition to the team. I look at CNN,CBC from time to time. Nothing has changed.
Same old lefty crap.

Sadly I write the CBC regularly saying their “filters” are showing using CNN references to things they don’t show. What’s up with that? When Mansbridge puts down Trump I point out his record on same issues, hypocrite. From HS drop out to interoffice “affairs” to paid speaking, our Mansbridge is a beauty. CBC sucks!

I’n a fist bump way, I love you Fayza. You’re like Trump, you’re too good to be true.

The main reason is that they put up o much fake news. But who are we to judge.

I hope this video gets seen by millions.

Donald Allan; I think I may have seen some of it (before averting my eyes and ears). Was that the interview in which Franken cited the case of a four year-old refugee applicant whose vetting lasted for five years?

George Dyer did you see the phoney rehearsed Al Franken interview where he said Trump was deranged or crazy? They had that all planned out so they could show it ad nauseam and then get a bunch of stooges to agree or waffle on the issue. Actually it is a propaganda tool they all use to authenticate their narratives. Lugenpresse

Fake news was the Acme bomb the (Coyote) news invented to kill the (Roadrunner) internet alternative news. Just like the cartoon, it blew up right in their face. Looks good on them.
That’s why they despise the term.

Thank you Jay Fayza. Don Lemon with guest Van Jones turn my stomach into knots with their race baiting bullshit. I’m surprised my TVs haven’t been punched through by now. I guess it’s cause I avoid them at all cost. I only check once in a while to get my blood pressure up

And another thing, (phew, who got me started on this) a few days ago I failed again to hold back the urge to scream at my television, as I watched CNN’s Jake Tapper use his big loud shouty voice to try and bully Kellyanne Conway on the topic of Fake News and falsehoods.
Thumping his desk, he demanded to know why President Donald Trump did not issue a response to a shooting (which Tapper characterized as a terrorist attack) at a mosque in Quebec and why that same incident was not mentioned on a list of over seventy terrorist attacks recently cited by the President.
Unfortunately, Kellyanne couldn’t explain through Tapper’s ill-mannered shouting that the President did indeed respond, to the people of Canada, offered condolences and expressed a willingness to help if in any way possible. I guess Tapper was pissed that the President didn’t keep him posted.
Also, sadly, Kellyanne did not get the opportunity to explain that Canada’s so-called prime minister initially had shot his little-boy mouth off by declaring the shooting as a terrorist attack while the RCMP had not yet determined a motive. Further, the suspect was subsequently charged with murder, but no terrorism charges have been laid.

Something else that’s pissing me off these days is when a smug, thinking they’re clever, lefty liberal, talking head on CNN, refers to Bannon (or the President) as President Bannon then follows up their so-called satirical genius with a feigned “excuse me”.
Please, Jeffrey Lord or Ben Ferguson or whoever, please just say “no” when they ask to be excused. Instead instruct them to look into the camera and offer a humble, heartfelt and sincere apology to President Trump, and if they choose not to, then get up and walk out.

CNN, The Most Busted Name In News
I have limited access to unbiased news (who doesn’t, I guess) so I end up watching some CNN, but I’ll try and listen to the original root. For example, I’ll watch Spicer’s press conference but then afterwards the talking heads or panelists take each line, filter it, twist it, “interpret” it, then discuss their own comments on it so much that they end up believing their own spin. They become like the doomed con artists because, like drinking their own Kool-aid, they start to believe their own con. That’s when I start to scream at my television.
Another “favourite” I have is when they employ their fact-checker whose convoluted logic goes something like “we didn’t find any evidence that this was true, therefore it is a lie”. My hand to God, I’ve heard him say that more than once.
I can handle some Smerconish. he’s not great but I think he’s the best of a bad lot.

JAY ! Good one
I remember the day the war started in Afghanistan , we all ran to the local pub to watch it every night after work , Dutch Canadian club in my case

We had no reason to not trust c n n then , but as time went on into the last decade there we rumblings to full flood fake news , along with the other alphabet m s m

That’s why we watch the REBEL , in fact in our own country we have the old maid LUGENPRESSE along with her younger sisters spewing their political "fair and balanced " fake news in covering up and leaving out
