CNN Botches Major ‘Bombshell’ Alleging Contacts Between Don Jr. And WikiLeaks

December 9, 2017

cnn-studio-signage2CNN misreported key details of an offer made to Donald Trump Jr. last year of a batch of stolen Wikileaks documents.

The story, which CNN published on Friday and covered extensively on TV, was touted as the first evidence that the Trump campaign was given a heads-up about documents stolen from Democrats.

But the story appears to have been riddled with errors, while also lacking key context.

Perhaps the most jarring error in the CNN report is the date on which Trump Jr. was sent the email. The network reported that a person named Mike Erickson emailed Trump Jr. and others on the Trump campaign on Sept. 4, 2016, with a link to Wikileaks documents as well as a decryption key to access them.

    CNN…MSNBC and other leftist liberal new media journalist do this purposely…they know readers will believe the first story that hits the pages…the corrections the next day aren’t even read…thus allowing em to keep on lying to American Public…Most readers will believe the original story as being the gospel…This the MSM knows…it works.

    Knowing CNN is the major source of “FAKE NEWS”, why would anyone pay attention to what they “report”?

  • Navy Bob says:

    How many more of these “corrections” (ie admitted lies) are we going to be subjected to before wising up to the FACT that the media is pulling out all stops to lie about and hamper this Administration for purely political reasons? Realizing that the media is a fully paid subsidiary of the Democrat Party, why are they even considered remotely relevant anymore? Where are the stories about the economy? How about the slowing of illegal immigration? Nope, that might make the President look like he’s accomplishing something. They will twist any story, even good ones, to make the President look bad. They gleefully reported about President Trump was greeting visitors in front of a painting of Hilary but failed to give praise to the President greeting regular citizens visiting the WH. Had this been 2 years ago, they’d have made a 2 hour “News Special” about how Obama was the “common man” or some such crap. And they decry Fox news as “faux news”, yet who is constantly having to make “corrections” to their “special reports” and “exclusives”?

    This was not a botched message about the wikileaks email! Rather it was a calculated attempt to besmirch Trump Jr, the Trump Campaign and Donald Trump! This so-called mistake of the email from Sept 4, 2016 to the real date of Sept 14, 2016 was calculated to cast doubt on the veracity of Trump Jr.! CNN is not just Fake News but a propaganda tool of the Never Trumpers!
