Accuracy in Media

Is CNN trying to link Trump’s comments on Russian leader Vladimir Putin to the alleged ‘Russian hack’ of the 2016 election narrative, perpetrated by the Democratic Party?

Well, you can read the piece for yourself, but here are the first three paragraphs of the piece:

Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump consistently broke from political orthodoxy in his effusive praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

His glowing statements on Putin have become central in stoking the suspicion that he and his campaign were somehow connected to Russian interference in the election.

A CNN KFile review of Trump’s public statements — from the years immediately before his presidential campaign to present — reveal that Trump has contradicted himself over the years about the nature of his relationship with Putin.

    It seems more like Trump was being ASKED about Putin and/or Russia way more than he brought the subject up. The writer put his slant on every portion of Trump’s conversational tidbit like he was aggressively praising him like he was family. Except for probably (if not undoubtedly) stretching the truth earlier about their relationship or, on the other hand, maybe downplaying a much more involved relationship with Putin than he wants to talk about, all Trump really said about him is that he thinks
    Putin has been a strong leader and that he doesn’t like Obama. What he said about Putin out-playing Obama at every move, and basically thumbing his nose at Obama is an opinion, but probably close to the truth. While there may or may not be more to the relationship, I can’t see any evidence of a heavy-breathing “bromance” between them with this entire list. CNN needs to pay more attention to important news instead of try so hard to be the next “National Enquirer”.

    CNN was the first trash of the talkers I saw when it came to Trump! They started reporting lies and have been the whole campaign and presidency! They manipulate facts and use explosive adjectives to distort the real news! I do not watch that trash anymore! I can’t stand a single one of there journalists and do not see how they sleep at night with all of the lies they tell! The only way this dog and pony show will end is if the lies stop and they atone for every single one! Enough is enough get on with your lives and let him be the president and get your hands out of anymore dirty play!
