On Tuesday, Todd Purdum wrote on op-ed in The Atlantic, accusing CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta of contributing to the “debased ritual of performance art that the White House briefing has become.” The next day, Acosta went on the Colbert Show, to tell the world that he “doesn’t want to be the story.” And tweeted a photo of himself…demonstrating how badly Jim Acosta wants to be *the* story.

In other words, CNN is calling the student a liar. So maybe the CNN “apple” is really rotten. Via Breitbart. CNN issued a statement Thursday morning denying that it had asked a shooting survivor to ask a “scripted question” at the CNN Town Hall on guns on Wednesday evening in Sunrise, Florida. On Wednesday evening, junior Colton Haab, a survivor of last week’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, told local Fort Lauderdale ABC affiliate WPLG that CNN had invited him to appear at the town hall, but he had withdrawn after being asked to recite a “scripted” question…. The CNN Town Hall was stacked heavily in favor of gun control, and speakers were carefully...

Wait, is CNN an apple or a banana? Or is it just a joke? Via Fox News. Sadly, this is CNN. CNN personalities already blame virtually everything on President Trump and now the network has floated a theory that the earth could be jeopardized by an asteroid because of the government shutdown — but don’t worry, experts have already dubunked the fake news. CNN correspondent Tom Foreman said on “The Lead with Jake Tapper” that NASA could potentially stop monitoring asteroids during the shutdown. “A big one, by the way, is expected to brush by Earth on February 4,” Foreman said on Friday’s show…. “NASA representatives say there’s no chance that it will collide with Earth,” Space.com reported….

If anyone doubts that CNN is a prime purveyor of fake news, please watch the video they purposely doctored of President Trump feeding koi fish with Japan PM Abe. And other outlets, from Bloomberg to NY Daily News, gleefully jumped on this very fake fishy story. Via Fox News. President Trump and Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe carried on an old tradition of feeding carp at a Koi pond in Tokyo when CNN and the rest of the mainstream media decided to twist the narrative to make Trump appear like a buffoon. Liberal network CNN ran a ridiculous headline, “Trump feeds fish, winds up pouring entire box of food into Koi pond,” complete with a misleading tweet from reporter Veronica...

Yes, after eight people were murdered in a terrorist attack, a few blocks from the World Trade Center, by a maniac screaming Alahu Akbar, CNN could not be bothered with this story. Because: Trump! Russia! Or something. Via NewsBusters. Only a few hours into their coverage of the deadly terror attack New York City on Tuesday, CNN found it more important to break away to continue to their Robert Mueller marathon. “A terror attack that killed eight people and injured a dozen others when a man in a truck mowed down bike riders and pedestrians on the west side. Much more on that coming up,” declared Wolf Blitzer on The Situation Room. “But we have another breaking story we’re following...

This panel presentation is either an apple or a banana… or just typical CNN sloppy “reporting,” ss Tammy points out in her latest Washington Times column: The liberal media’s meltdown; Mainstream media goes after the president with a series of shoddy half-truths Via Daily Caller. ….Wolf Blitzer, host of CNN’s “The Situation Room,” falsely said that a Republican donor originally funded the dossier. One of his panelists, Washington Post editor David Swerdick, backed up Blitzer’s false claim. Swerdick claimed that who funded the dossier was relatively unimportant because, he said, “both sides had a hand in this.” That is false. A Republican donor did pay Fusion GPS to conduct opposition research on Trump during the primary but the firm never...

The banana, er, apple, is *not* from The Onion.

Paul Krugman writes for the NYT, and received the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2008. He is also a purveyor of dangerous fake news, falsely tweeting that Puerto Rico has a cholera outbreak due to Hurricane Maria, and is somehow blaming President Trump for this non-existent story. He then semi-retracted his claim: Now it’s conjunctivitis. Well, whatever. Via Twitchy. ….It doesn’t matter; those who hate Trump will believe he somehow caused a cholera epidemic by ignoring the crisis in Puerto Rico because of all the brown people. Right, Kruggie? OK, cholera not confirmed. Conjunctivitis yes; lack of clean water (situation worsening, not improving) makes it a risk. But not certain — Paul Krugman (@paulkrugman) September 30, 2017 CDC does not...

Dan Rather is the King of Fake News, having been caught reporting on a fake document about George W. Bush in 2004. It’s beyond laughable that MSNBC would have him discuss the “ethics” of the ‘Don Jr. Russian Soap Opera Drama.’ Via NewsBusters. In MSNBC’s search for a spokesman of sacrosanct ethics and patriotism, they turned to an unlikely source: Dan Rather. The fake news forefather joined Chris Hayes on his Tuesday All In program, opining that lying by Trump Jr. and other Trump officials raised “a real ethical question” about their character. Moreover, he argued, it lead to very real questions about their “patriotism”:…. A certain amount of charity ought to be given to those attempting to earnestly atone...

Just when you thought CNN could not possibly make bigger fools of themselves. Via Federalist. CNN’s international diplomatic editor Nic Robertson told viewers Wednesday that German Chancellor Angela Merkel is holding the G20 summit in Hamburg instead of a more remote location to humiliate Trump. However, the G20 site was selected more than a year ago, when all bets had Hillary Clinton winning the presidential election. On June 10, 2016, the Associated Press reported: The German government says it will host a summit of the Group of 20 major world economic powers in Hamburg on July 7 and 8 next year. The government said Friday that the meeting will likely be held at the northern port city’s congress center. The...

Yet another example from the WaPo Fake News Paper, or, as Tammy calls it, “Jeff Bezos’ Blog” Via Breitbart. The establishment media became upset this weekend after President Donald Trump canceled the “White House Muslim Iftar Dinner tradition started by Thomas Jefferson.” But the media is wrong in every respect. Thomas Jefferson never held any Iftar dinner and only three out of 45 presidents ever hosted one, so there is no such “tradition” to cancel…. The often-used claim that Thomas Jefferson held the first Iftar dinner at the White House was trotted out by the Post’s Wang. She recounted the time when the diplomatic envoy from the Bey of Tunis, Sidi Soliman Melli Melli, visited Washington during Ramadan in 1805....
