Nope I just quit watching CNN and now slap my label of "fake news" on them. Same as they like to throw labels on me as a white male Trump supporter. Only difference is I've watched CNN and seen the fake news with my own eyes.


So you admit to being as petty as you believe they are?

That's odd.



They don't even know who I am. Yet they have a label for me. Funny how that works. On top of that, they have continuously pushed racist & divisive news a lot lately. Nobody wants to watch that crap, unless you buy into the crap being fed to you. So watch out, I'm the white boogeyman out to take advantage of anyone of a different color...


That's your interpretation. Simply reporting on certain issues is viewed as pushing racist or divisive news. That's become another excuse to dismiss CNN.



Did you miss the part that a Socialist country banned CNN? Says a lot to me, but go ahead and ignore that part


So you have something in common with the socialist regime?

So does that mean that CNN is not Leftist propaganda? I mean if a socialist country is banning it...

CNN has never been socialist propaganda.

As the saying goes: You have MSNBC for the Left, Fox for the Right and CNN for the airports.

They are fairly middle of the road, with some bias mixed in from time to time. Some Left, some Right.

I read EXACTLY what CNN said; you obviously did not.
de·nounce
dəˈnouns/
verb
publicly declare to be wrong or evil

un·com·fort·a·ble
ˌənˈkəmfərdəb(ə)l,ˌənˈkəmftərbəl/
adjective
causing or feeling slight pain or physical discomfort.

You choose to muddy the waters as it suits your agenda for CNN to be viewed as "unbiased" when CNN CLEARLY is not.
You know it benefits EVERYONE when these issues gain traction.
Actual vetting of real news is good for everyone. Actual reporting with no bias is good for everyone.

Sounds like what Trump and many of his supporters want to do. Suppress the freedom of the press and free speech of those that do not push favorable content.


Again, the only people suppressing free speech at this point are left wingers/anti-Trump people. And they're doing it with violence. Also, the idea that we have a "free press" is laughable. It's a Democrat party propaganda machine.

Absolutely absurd. Name a single right leaning person on the network. Name a single non-activist anti-Trump person. CNN aided Democrats in rigging debates FFS!

I love that you're now the champion of propaganda media. Makes sense after your posting history during the election.

Freedom of the press doesn't mean the freedom to LIE.

I did not say they were unbiased. In fact, I said the opposite.

Free speech and free press is good for everyone.

Calling something fake news, when it is not, is your own attempt to muddy the waters.

I never claimed anything was fake.
I pointed out the ATTEMPTS to influence the recent usa potus election.
I pointed out the bias of CNN.

try harder

If you can convince people the middle of the road is crazy, you don't need to worry about the Left anymore.

CNN is like the least fake of news. It is rather ironic.

You mean a small number of idiots that can't protest without doing something stupid? The vast majority are peaceful. Yo uare using that to push a false narrative.

Not going to fall for it.

Corey Lewandowski, Trump's former campaign manager who signed a NDA with Trump, was hired by CNN to be a political contributor. Why would they hire someone knowing he cannot speak ill of Trump?

And that was the actions of Donna Brazile, not CNN.

Why do I care what you think? You only like that which confirms your own biases and everything else is considered fake or propaganda. You stay well within your box and are scared #less of anything that may not fit in to it.

As long as it's not slanderous or defaming, they can do what they want.

The zillions of you falsely spouting this is a propaganda machine.

It's much easier to just call them all violent, and will justify your future violence. Your strategy is clear.

My apologies. I should have been more specific. It was meant to be a generalized statement.

I don't disagree with that. Everyone is going to have a bias. Why the focus on CNN?

They didn't try to influence an election. They didn't try to rig a debate.

Exactly.

CNN has been a target since Limbaugh began to bash them and call them the Clinton News Network in the 90's.

That was a generalized comment about the media in general. It is not proof that CNN has been promoting her campaign, in the context in which you mean.

No. CNN had nothing to do with it. Brazile tried to give Hillary a step-up in the debate, which doesn't matter a bit because each side always declares their candidate the winner and it does not have an effect on the election.


so it's OK to give one side the upper hand as long as it's YOUR side. Got it. (Since the debates have no effect on elections)

Yes, 1 video proves his statement that they don't trend is false.

So CNN admits that CNN was promoting hillary's campaign, and you don't believe it?

Was that fake news?

Do you understand how he came to his conclusion of middle of the road, or do you think bipartisan is what he said?

He clearly stated individual clips like the one you posted can be bias, but they don't trend this behavior. I agree with his observation.
