wow..you are so blinded by political partisanship that you fail to see the bigger picture.

It's not D vs R here. It's that US news media has shown without a doubt that they cannot be trusted to present real, factual news these days.

Reporting that you have an email when you don't is outright LYING and has nothing to do with checking for accuracy.

Whoever approved that explosive article to be made public should be fired because CNN had no copy of the email.
What do you wanna bet they got trolled and fell for it hook line and sinker? Lol

I am with the same opinion. The real question is what do they get from trying to lie about the POTUS.

Here's another example of the left looking for any way to discredit our President, whether it is true or not. Taking a picture hours before the rally and showing empty seats - then acting as though he couldn't draw a full crowd. Glad our Tweeting President set him straight and got an apology.

A reporter takes a picture of an empty stadium hours before a rally and then says he was "confused" when he posted it saying no one showed up ?

That's not even a believable lie. Journalists aren't even trying anymore.

In other words you didn't bother to read it.

It is FULL of ACTUAL stories from various media outlets and you automatically dismiss it because of your own BIAS.

Big deal, they reported something, it may have turned out to be not 100% accurate, and they had to retract. That is why they put erasers on pencils, people make mistakes.

How often has TRUMP said something, then, when fact checkers prove him wrong, he comes out with the lame excuse "Well, someone told me that." ? I never hear any crying when he does it, and it occurs VERY often.
Not when I was growing up. However, they are now a bunch of partisan and emotional hacks who spend no time to verify a story before they splatter the lies all over the news waves with absolutely no regard for their victims.

Comedy gold for them.
It's "mission accomplished" for Putin.

And Trumplings line up to kiss his ring.

Unbelievable reading. The MSM and the left have been driven to new lows by the Trump presidency

The presidency has been driven to a new low by a man so pathetically needy for attention he resorts to making up phone calls in praise of himself.
