and she corrected herself.

Kinda like the press stating trump removed the bust of MLK from the oval office. . . and then corrected themselves.

both sides do it - always have, always will.

That's hysterical. No... really, it's funny. And sad. Funny-sad.

The level of gullibility there is staggering.

The MSM is owned by corporate interests and serves their corporate masters . This was true well before Trump and will remain true . Obama was more or less on better terms because he was funded and sanctioned by the same interests. Trump or not Trump does not change this fact. I am not going to just get my information from the Washington Post anymore form Bezos himself. presidents come and go , but the media monopoly has gone on for decades.

Now you may hate Trump all you like, but to act as though the media is trustworthy is pretty rich, especially from the left which I assumed was skeptical of corporatism and merchant rule.

Not to mention bringing up Hillary. They can't defend so they resort to deflection. But the non-brainwashed recognize just how vile Kellyanne Conway is.

Like someone said earlier today....The MSM gets distracted by shiny objects. Meanwhile, real news gets reported elsewhere.

Misspeaking, and then correcting yourself is not the same thing as trying to make stuff up.

I quit watching CNN weeks ago.

I couldn't agree more. Misspeaking, as in reporting that a bust of MLK has been moved because the reporter didn't see it, is not the same thing at all as completely fabricating a "massacre" that never happened, and then repeating the whopper of a lie several days later.

THAT is making stuff up. And that is why this consummate liar has no credibility left.

I find all the scoffing at CNN to be amusing, considering the fact that the White House tried to get her booked on the network for the weekend shows. If they think CNN has no influence, why were they so eager to get their liar on the air on their network?

They need access to the REAL information - not Kellyanne's lies.

Now they get crumbs..... Everyone else gets the scoop.

LOL!! And these are the "so called" intellectuals!

If Kellyanne can troll the limp wristed snowflakes this easy, that is reason enough to have her on staff!
The more she triggers their immature reaction, the more people move toward TRUMP 2020.

Thank goodness for CNN and MSNBC. The Founding Fathers, in their great wisdom, gave us the First Amendment precisely because they knew a free press is needed to keep populist tyrants like Trump from using mob rule or fiat to shut down all dissident voices. The minute we lose a free press we lose freedom -- we become the USSR, North Korea, etc.

LOL, their rating have crashed through the floor. Networks like the USA, TNT channels now pull in more viewers.

Very few people trust these as sources of news and it shows. It's much like reading the Enquirer.

Yes CNN's ratings are pretty low. We stopped watching CNN when they became more of an opinion based channel. That's also why I don't watch Fox, MSNBC and a few others.


It would be nice to just have the national news back again. Just news. Closest thing we've found to that is PBS Newshour.

Oh and Kellyanne Conway is a degenerate lying a$$hat. I think any news outlet trying to report 'facts' should shy away from her. I mean some flat out lying going on- it's truly unbelievable. Trust me.
