CNN is exposed during Kellyanne Conway interview, and you won’t believe how.
This past Friday, July 7, President Trump held his long anticipated meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. During the entire week leading up to the meeting, everyone was focused on the singular question of whether or not Trump would bring up Russia’s alleged meddling in the 2016 election.
Pundits on the left went on TV and predicted that Trump would not bring it up. They claimed that since Trump had never explicitly said that he believed the US Intelligence community’s assessment that Russia meddled in our election, he didn’t believe it, and he wouldn’t have reason to bring it up.
As it turns out, not only did Trump bring it up, but Trump spent the first 40 minutes of their meeting pressing Putin on whether or not the Russian government was involved in any of the actions they’ve been accused of.
Not only did he make sure that Russia wasn’t involved, but he then made a point of suggesting that the two countries create a cyber-security task force that would make sure nothing like this could happen in the future.
This revelation left the mainstream media in quite the bind as the narrative that they had been pushing for a week, that Trump wouldn’t press Putin on Russia’s meddling in our election because he didn’t believe it happened, had been totally destroyed. The mainstream media were then left with two options:
- They could either admit they had been wrong, or
- They could do literally anything else.
Guess which option they chose.
What’s Happening Now:
Instead of admitting that they had been wrong, the mainstream media decided to change the topic and they focused on the newest Russia scandal: that Donald Trump Jr. had a meeting with a Russian lawyer in order to get dirt on Hillary Clinton.
With the new Russia scandal being all the rage, on Monday July 10th CNN New Day had Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway on for her take on it. While CNN may have hoped that Conway was just going to give them a pass for their false reporting on Trump’s meeting with Putin, they were dead wrong.
As the Daily Caller reported:
“White House counselor Kellyanne Conway bashed CNN’s coverage of President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin last week, pointing out that the network had incorrectly reported that Trump wouldn’t address Russia’s election-related meddling during his meeting with Putin.”
In her interview with Chris Cuomo, Conway pointed out that “CNN spent a full week plus doing nothing but having these headlines saying President Trump is not expected to bring up Russian interference with President Putin.” She then observed that when Trump actually did press Putin on Russian’s involvement in meddling in the election, CNN and the rest of the mainstream media found something else to criticize him for.
If this doesn’t show everyone that CNN’s agenda is driven by a bias towards Trump, I don’t know what will.
