Following many years of fake news that has been consistently debunked, CNN is desperately trying to salvage its reputation by moving goal posts. The Daily Caller reports:
CNN President Jeff Zucker is justifying his network’s role in amplifying the Russian collusion conspiracy theory despite the series of reporting errors made by CNN reporters throughout the ordeal.
In an interview with The New York Times published Tuesday, Zucker said he is “entirely comfortable” with the way CNN covered allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 presidential election.
“We are not investigators. We are journalists, and our role is to report the facts as we know them, which is exactly what we did,” Zucker said. “A sitting president’s own Justice Department investigated his campaign for collusion with a hostile nation. That’s not enormous because the media says so. That’s enormous because it’s unprecedented.”
While Zucker claims his network only dealt in the facts, their track record on the Russia probe tells a different story.
CNN repeatedly prided itself over “investigating”, but now admits that it is only a propaganda outlet for leftists. Will it ever recover its credibility?
