7 Times CNN Botched The News In 2017


During his first press conference as president-elect, Donald Trump had a notably fiery exchange with CNN’s Jim Acosta, who attempted to ask Trump a question when he was trying to take another reporter’s inquiry. “Don’t be rude…… don’t be rude,” Trump said, as Acosta continued to speak.

Then he dropped a classic one liner: “You are fake news.”

That shut Acosta up – and surprisingly got some laughs from the press. Acosta would later tweet Trump that “we are real news, Mr. President,” a line that, in hindsight, hasn’t aged well.

It’s been mainly Russia-mania for all of 2017 on CNN without a single bombshell. But that’s hardly the only fake story they’ve pushed this year. Let’s take a walk through memory lane, shall we?

Courtesy of the Daily Caller, here are CNN’s seven biggest screwups of 2017.

Hate the South Week

General Uncivil Background

Blessed as we are — so the economists say (they never lie) -– with relentless, inescapable digital bother and cyber-mania, any one of us might occasionally visit news sites and blogs. The ever hopeful soul, seeking its bliss, foolishly expects to find wisdom of some kind on the Internet. Well, there’s not much of it there and finding it is a lot of work.

One thing you do learn on worldwide web is that there are certain forbidden areas into which no one should tread:

1) You must never doubt Mr. Darwin in the slightest. If you do, you will learn that we are all extremely close kin with the anthropoid apes — which is a good thing, except when it’s you, who obviously are descended much too recently from them. A thousand other vituperative posts later, the whole thing is cleared up, and rightly so.

2) Say something suggesting agreement with the “God hypothesis,” and you shall be handed your head, bloody and broken. This may take 2,000 posts, but “anti-science” has no rights (Feyerabend notwithstanding) and must take its just punishment.

 If he had a brain.
One of the most well-known faces of the Black Lives Matter movement, DeRay McKesson, has filed a lawsuit against Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on Tuesday, alleging that she defamed him when she stated that he had incited violence against police.

McKesson was arrested in Louisiana during BLM protests against 2016 shooting of Alton Sterling, but the charges were later dropped. He was one of 186 protesters who later settled a lawsuit against the police for $136,000.

University’s ‘White Christmas’ Tweet Triggers Snowflakes

 A leading university has apologized after a reference to “White Christmas” in one of its tweets triggered snowflake students who thought it might be a tad racist.

The original tweet from University College London was meant to be a friendly piece of advice about snow conditions:

But then various race-baiting SJW alumni and students claimed to take offense:

So, rather than stand up to them, the university caved with a groveling correction:

Sessions’ First Year: A Breath of Fresh Air After Years of Obama Scandals


A year ago the Department of Justice was finishing up eight long years of a scandal-plagued term under Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, as President Obama’s political arm. A year later, the department has done a complete 180 degree turn back to upholding – instead of undermining – the rule of law, and restoring law and order.
The last thing we remember about the Obama Justice Department was the unseemly, secret meeting between General Lynch and former President Bill Clinton while his wife Hillary, then running for President, was under criminal investigation by the FBI.  Today, the DOJ is back on track; fixed on its mission to keep the public safe and pursue justice.

GOP leaders reach tax deal, cutting corporate rate to 21% and top individual rate to 37%

Via Billy

OP leaders on Wednesday agreed on a final tax cut plan that would lower the corporate rate to 21% and drop the top individual rate to 37%, according to a Republican source briefed on the deal.

Earlier House and Senate versions of the measure would have lowered the corporate rate to 20%, but in reconciling the two plans, leaders needed to nudge up the corporate rate in order to pay for benefits elsewhere. The one percentage point increase would provide an extra $100 billion over 10 years.
