CNN Claims Its Credibility is Higher Than Ever After Being Caught Publishing ‘Fake News’

CNN Claims Its Credibility is Higher Than Ever After Being Caught Publishing ‘Fake News’

avatar

In an incredulous comment, CNN President Jeff Zucker told New York Magazine that the network’s “credibility is higher than ever.”

This comes after CNN released a non-vetted report on president-elect Donald Trump suggesting that the Russian government was blackmailing him for financial and personal reasons. That report is now known to be fake, and was allegedly created by an ex-MI6 agent Christopher Steele, and then promoted by 4chan.

This resulted in Trump blasting CNN as “Fake News,” and shutting down one of their reporters when he questioned Trump.

Your organization is terrible… No… I’m not going to give you a question. You are FAKE NEWS!” Trump said.

Hold on, isn’t this the same CNN that has a habit of cutting its feed during confrontational interviews and blaming it on satellite issues?

Isn’t this the same network that tried to pass its own cameraman off as an anti-Trump protester, in order to shape the narrative for Hillary Clinton?

Isn’t this the same network that posted biased polls about Clinton?

The same network whose analyst—Donna Brazile—became the interim DNC chairperson, and then gave debate questions to the Clinton campaign ahead of the debate?

CNN’s credibility is also under high scrutiny by much of the public for its biased coverage and sensational reporting.

Zucker feels differently though, and is living in a fantasy world. It has been eight months since Trump has done an interview with CNN, and Zucker still seemed convinced that the next president would give in to the network once he realizes its impact.

“It doesn’t worry me that Donald Trump hasn’t done an interview with CNN in eight months. One of the things I think this administration hasn’t figured out yet is that there’s only one television network that is seen in Beijing, Moscow, Seoul, Tokyo, Pyongyang, Baghdad, Tehran and Damascus — and that’s CNN. The perception of Donald Trump in capitals around the world is shaped, in many ways, by CNN. Continuing to have an adversarial relationship with that network is a mistake.”

However, it remains to be seen whether Trump will extend press access to CNN, or whether he will give more access to alternative media journalists and bloggers.

CNN was also named the “least trusted network among its viewers” earlier this month. According to a poll from Rasmussen Reports, when viewer were asked if they trust the political news they are getting from the mainstream media networks, 50 percent of Fox views, 43 percent of MSNBC viewers and just 33 percent of CNN viewers said they trust their political news.

Russia Goes Off! Blasts Multiple European Nations For ‘Grossly Interfering’ In US Election

Russia Goes Off! Blasts Multiple European Nations For ‘Grossly Interfering’ In US Election

avatar

(ZeroHedge) Having listened stoically for the past two months to accusations without evidence that Moscow “hacked the US election”, and that Hillary’s loss was indirectly due to Putin’s alleged meddling, which resulted in Obama’s expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats, on Wednesday Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov finally snapped, and lashed out at the ongoing US election scapegoating fiasco, saying that leaders and top officials from the UK, Germany, and France have “grossly interfered” in US internal affairs, “campaigned” for Hillary Clinton, and openly “demonized” Donald Trump.

Unlike US accusations of Russian interference, at least Lavrov’s claim can be substantiated with a simple google search of news event in mid to late 2016.

Speaking during a press conference following a meeting with his Austrian counterpart Sebastian Kurz, Lavrov said his angry outburst was because Moscow “is tired” of accusations it meddled in the US election. In fact, Lavrov said, it is time to “acknowledge the fact” that it was the other way around.

“US allies have grossly interfered in America’s internal affairs, in the election campaign,” Lavrov said, quoted by RT.

“We noticed that Angela Merkel, Francois Hollande, Theresa May, and other European leaders” did so. He added that official representatives of some of the European countries did not mince words, and essentially “demonized” Donald Trump during the election campaign.

Among the more vivid examples, last August German Foreign Minister Frank Walther Steinmeier called Trump a “hate preacher.” Reacting to Trump’s statement that parts of London are ‘no-go areas,’ UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said in December that Trump is “unfit” to be US president. Later on, however, Johnson said that Trump’s presidency might be a “moment of opportunity.”

On the other hand, the Russian government has expressed its willingness to work with the US under Donald Trump, Lavrov said. “Trump says that if the promotion of US national interests would lead to a chance of working with Russia, it would be foolish not to do that.”

“Our approach is the same: where our interests coincide, we should be and are ready to work together with the US as well as the EU and NATO,” the minister stressed.

Over the past year, Russia has been repeatedly accused by Washington of meddling in the US election. In January, the US Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) issued a report allegedly proving Moscow had its fingers in the US election campaign. The public was only provided, however, with a declassified part of the paper, which contained no solid evidence. Trump’s advisor on foreign policy during the campaign, Carter Page said that the paper was “speculative” and served “certain political theories.” The US media, citing CIA sources and unverified reports, even alleged that Moscow tried to aid Trump directly to secure his victory.  Trump has rebuffed the allegations, saying it was simply another “excuse” by the Democrats to explain the defeat of Hillary Clinton.

The demonization campaign culminated with last week’s release of a dossier, according to which Russia had “compromising” materials on Trump, suggesting the president-elect is a puppet for the Kremlin.

In response, yesterday Putin warned that he sees attempts in the United States to “delegitimize” Trump using “Maidan-style” methods previously used in Ukraine, and slammed the creators of the Trump report, saying “people who order fakes of the type now circulating against the U.S. president-elect, who concoct them and use them in a political battle, are worse than prostitutes because they don’t have any moral boundaries at all.”

RT Blocked From Posting On Facebook Until After Trump Takes Office

RT Blocked From Posting On Facebook Until After Trump Takes Office

avatar

Russia Today, Moscow’s English news outlet, has reportedly been blocked from posting on Facebook until after President-elect Trump’s inauguration.

We're currently blocked from new posts or shares to FB. The ban, as it stands, lasts until 10:25pm Saturday, Moscow…

Posted by RT on Wednesday, January 18, 2017

RT claimed that the ban is due to a “misplaced live streaming rights strike during RT’s broadcast of President Obama’s final press conference.”

But the timing here can’t be played off as simply coincidental. RT was mentioned in the infamous “Russian hacking report” for influencing the U.S. election. Is Facebook now working politically?

[RELATED: John Podesta Exposed: Here’s Why U.S. Intelligence Hates Abby Martin]

It would seem that way, given the fact that Facebook has decided to hire a full list of liberal left-leaning fact checkers and has begun limiting the reach of groups such as WeAreChange.

[RELATED: How To Find Out Which Political Label Facebook Has Given You]

Facebook’s ban on RT comes just weeks after it claimed that a video of a disabled man being tortured did not violate its community guidelines.

[RELATED: Facebook, Twitter, MSM, and Chicago Police Complicit In Chicago Hate Crime Cover-Up]

This is not the first time that Facebook has censored a page from posting. They censored a Facebook page with over 220,000 followers called “Disdain for Plebs” in September, simply for producing anti-liberal content.

Facebook also censored journalist and friend of WeAreChange Lauren Southern for mentioning Facebook’s censorship.

In fact, former Facebook employees have confessed to the abhorrent censorship of conservative news. The nail in the coffin was actually placed in 2015 when Facebook admitted that they were censoring posts and comments about political corruption. Facebook is not new to censorship, and this will likely continue.

One commenter in RT’s thread summed it up nicely:

Christopher NoëlI honestly can’t keep up with the news all around, so I can’t decide much for myself who says what about what, who might be lying on what, who’s a bit propagandist on the sides. But I do know that I appreciate getting a lot of point of views in my feed, so I can better judge and try make my mind about the world. So WTF facebook?!?!

As the RT social media director, @IvorCrotty noted, we are indeed living in some very interesting times.

Bombshell Video: Mainstream Media Finally Investigates ‘PizzaGate’

Bombshell Video: Mainstream Media Finally Investigates ‘PizzaGate’

avatar

CBS46’s Ben Swann became the first mainstream media anchor to investigate the alleged child trafficking sex ring referred to as “PizzaGate” on Thursday. He broke down all of the key details surrounding the story during a “Reality Check” segment.

Reality Check: Is Pizzagate "Fake News" or Has It Just Not Be…

Reality Check: Is Pizzagate "Fake News" or Has It Just Not Been Officially Investigated? (Warning: Some of the info on this story may be disturbing) This video barely scratches the surface of all the information connected to Pizzagate

Posted by Ben Swann on Tuesday, January 17, 2017

Internet sleuths set out researching the leaked Wikileaks John Podesta emails and uncovered what appeared to be coded messages.

“There are no emails that discuss child sex trafficking or pedophilia, but there is no denying that there is evidence of strangely coded messages,” Swann said.

There is no mistaking the use of coded messages within the Podesta emails, but their meaning remains speculative. Although one specific email regarding a “pizza related handkerchief map” seems to indicate that there is more beneath the surface.

The term “Cheese Pizza” is often used by pedophiles as the acronym “CP” for child pornography.

Swann goes on to describe James Alefantis and his connections to the Podestas and Clintons. He also exposed the lie previously pushed by the MSM Alefantis is not involved with the Podesta emails.

“Comet Ping Pong was mentioned in the Podesta emails,” Swann said.

What researchers found next were symbols that matched a declassified 2007 FBI document describing symbols that pedophiles use to communicate with each other.

One of the symbols being “Besta Pizza.” What Swann does not note is the obvious symbol for Politics and Prose. A much more detailed breakdown of “PizzaGate” is in the article below:

[RELATED: Trump Fires General Flynn’s Son From Transition Team for Tweeting PizzaGate]

It’s worth noting that there are already previous pedophilia connections between convicted sex offender, Jeffery Epstein, and the Clintons. Bill Clinton is known to have traveled on Epstein’s private jet, nicknamed the “Lolita Express,” without any Secret Service protection at least 26 times. Epstein donated at least $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation in 2006, a year after he was arrested on charge of sexually abusing a minor.

The Podesta’s are also friends of convicted pedophiles Dennis Hastert and Sir Clement Freud.

Epstein got off with just a slap on the wrist for participating in one of the largest child sex trafficking rings with no question as to why. Police are also investigating Sir Clement Freud’s possible connection to the Madeleine McCann case.

[RELATED: James Alefantis Threatens PizzaGate Researcher Ryan A. O’Neal]

Swann noted that one of the strangest things about the PizzaGate scandal is that it still has yet to be investigated by law enforcement:

“For all that is here, there has not been one single public investigation of any of this. Not from local police, not from the FBI, no one. And that has to be the big question. Not for Podesta, or for pizza parlor owners, but for law enforcement. Based on what may be or what may not be here, the big question is, why hasn’t any investigation taken place?”

Assange: Manning Clemency ‘Well Short’ of Expectations—Refuses To Turn Himself In

Assange: Manning Clemency ‘Well Short’ of Expectations—Refuses To Turn Himself In

avatar

A lawyer for Julian Assange said on Wednesday that President Obama’s commutation of Chelsea Manning’s sentence did not meet the deal that was set by WikiLeaks.

As a result, Barry Pollack claimed that Assange will not be facing extradition to the United States. While Assange has not been charged publicly, his legal team has alleged that he has been indicted in secret. They also claim that the U.S. National Defense Authorization Act will be used against Assange.

Noting that Chelsea Manning was not released immediately, Pollack said “Obama violated the deal” that was put forth by Wikileaks.

“Mr. Assange welcomes the announcement that Ms. Manning’s sentence will be reduced and she will be released in May, but this is well short of what he sought,” Pollack told The Hill via email. “Mr. Assange had called for Chelsea Manning to receive clemency and be released immediately.”

[RELATED: Assange Agrees To Extradition If Obama Grants Chelsea Manning Clemency]

Another tweet from the international whistleblower organization indicated that “Assange would be happy to come to the U.S. provided all his rights were intact.”

Wikileaks Defense Force also tweeted out a link to support Assange’s legal fund, which means they may be preparing to fight the alleged secret indictment.

Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison when she was charged under the Espionage Act for handing information to Wikileaks that exposed atrocious human rights violations.

Manning will be set free on May 17, after having been in military custody since 2010. She was originally serving a 35-year sentence, which is notably the longest punishment ever imposed on an American whistleblower.

[RELATED: Obama Commutes Bulk of Chelsea Manning’s Sentence]

The White House has denied that Assange and Wikileaks’ deal had anything to do with the decision to commute Manning’s sentence. The fact that Assange remains free—and dodged a bullet that many feared—is huge news for anyone who supports a free and transparent government.

Is WeAreChange On The Trump Train? Here’s The Truth…

Is WeAreChange On The Trump Train? Here’s The Truth…

avatar

With the “Left vs. Right” paradigm appearing more polarizing then ever before in the media, WeAreChange’s Luke Rudkowski answers the question of whether he is Pro-Trump or Anti-Trump. Watch the video to find out:

The question can be explained by looking at the current situation unfolding with Chelsea Manning. President Obama recently commuted her sentence, and as a result, the right responded with criticism on social media. Wait a second… Didn’t the Republicans support the information released by WikiLeaks when it revealed that the Democratic National Committee rigged its primary in favor of Hillary Clinton?

Yet, now they’re going after the man who released information to WikiLeaks, just because it revealed atrocious human rights violations committed by the U.S. military? The thing “the right” doesn’t realize is that it was Manning’s leaks that put WikiLeaks on that map, and that made it possible for the leaks about the DNC to carry such weight.

The hypocrisy comes from the fact that it should not be able what “side” you are on, or which “party” is in office, you should have your own values, morals and principles, and should stick to them no matter what.

Snowden Safe For The Long Term?

Snowden Safe For The Long Term?

avatar

MOSCOW (WRC NEWS) — Edward Snowden’s lawyer has informed him that he is legally eligible to obtain permanent Russian citizenship, following the announcement that his asylum status has been extended by 3 years.

The former NSA contractor turned whistleblower has lived in Russia for the last three years.

“Essentially, he now has every reason to apply for [Russian] citizenship in the future, in a while, as the law [states] that one needs to spend no less than 5 years on the territory of Russia [to be granted citizenship],” Snowden’s lawyer Anatoly Kucherena told RIA Novosti news agency.

“This means that if he decides [to apply for citizenship] in the near future, it will be legally possible. He has now lived in Russian for almost four years, has not violated any laws, and there are no [legal] claims against him – this is one of the reasons his residence permit was extended,” Kucherena explained.

In a statement to Interfax, Kucherena also expressed hope that the incoming Trump administration would change Washington’s attitude towards the whistleblower.

“I hope that the administration of President-elect Donald Trump will be more sensitive and objective in its consideration of the Snowden issue and will change the attitude the official authorities [have expressed] towards it,” Kucherena stated on Wednesday, saying that in order “to do this, they need only to work through Snowden’s story and realize that he did not commit any crime.”

CIA Releases 13 Million Documents, Claims Its Entire History Now Online

CIA Releases 13 Million Documents, Claims Its Entire History Now Online

avatar

The Central Intelligence Agency has released a bulk archive of 13 million pages of declassified documents online. These documents were previously only physically accessible from four computers at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland using the CIA Records Search Tool or CREST.

The documents date all the way back to as far as the Cold War.

Information about a number of controversial topics is included: from UFOs, to more information on the infamous CIA psychic experiments Project Stargate, to Henry Kissinger’s papers, other CIA research and development documents, scientific papers, photographic intelligence reports, news archives, and a whole lot more according to the official CIA press release.

The CIA emphasized the inclusion of UFO Documents and plans to further promote the contents of the archive online.

In June 2014, MuckRock, sued the CIA, on behest of pro-bono attorney Ken McClanahan, a lawyer with the National Security Counsellors. The group claimed that the database was “technically public, but in practice largely inaccessible.”

Subsequently, journalist and researcher Michael Best or @NatSecGeek on Twitter, launched a Kickstarter project to put pressure on the CIA to publicly release the data more quickly and exposing how the agency was taking too much time to publish the material it was required to make publicly available under Bill Clinton’s 1995 Executive Order 13526 instituted in 2006. The Executive Order requires the declassification of non-exempt historically valuable records 25 years or older.

Best began scanning and printing 700,000 documents manually and publishing them for the entire world to see, effectively costing the CIA resources as the agency doesn’t charge for printer paper or the ink used.

“That effort was halted in October when it became clear the CIA was going to (reluctantly) post the material itself, and Best put together a good background on CREST, what it contains, and some of the potential pitfalls of the way it looks like the data will be released.

Then on November 18, the CIA’s Litigation Information Review Office finally threw in the towel, bumping up the release significantly to just next year,” Muckrock, writes.

Amazingly the CIA was somehow able to suddenly miraculously find a way to publish 13 million documents in a matter of 3 months despite stalling for so long. In the past, it had argued that it had neither the time nor the resources to achieve such a feat.

“Forcing people to travel to College Park, MD during bankers’ hours and print out page after page of records just to do historical research was an obnoxious and antiquated way for the CIA to pay lip service to transparency without actually allowing meaningful public access to their records. I am happy to have been part of the effort to nudge them along into the 21st century,” McClanahan wrote in an email.

With respect to transparency, this is a historic move by the CIA that sets an important precedent. Going forward, the CIA now has no excuse to delay publishing documents that are 25 years or older as required under the Freedom Of Information Act.

The next information that the agency will be required to declassify is JFK’s assassination in October 2017.

It’s going to be a very busy next few years for national security reporters and, as with such broad archives of source material as the WikiLeaks cables, this information may take many years to sift through.

Protester Injured After Attempting to Light Himself On Fire Outside Trump Hotel

Protester Injured After Attempting to Light Himself On Fire Outside Trump Hotel

avatar

An anti-Trump snowflake has been taken to the hospital after attempting to light himself on fire outside Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC. Surprisingly, he did not melt.

While the name of the individual has not been released, he stated that he is from California.

The incident occurred just before 9:30pm, and the fire was reportedly put out by the man himself after hotel employees called the police and DC Fire.

The man told a reporter on the scene that it was an act of protest against president-elect Donald Trump.

“I was trying to light myself on fire as an act of protest,” the man told NBC4. “To protest the fact that we’re electing somebody who’s completely incapable of respecting the Constitution of the United States.”

The man was rushed to the hospital to be treated for burns, but the injuries are not believed to be serious. There was no damage to the hotel immediately reported.

Self-immolation is a centuries-old form of protest in which the person kills themselves as a political martyr. It is unclear if the man was actually planning to go that far, or if he had any real plan at all.

Earlier in the day, protesters repeatedly blocked traffic for a two-hour long march to the hotel from McPherson Square. The demonstrators repeatedly demanded that Trump’s presidency is illegitimate, because he wasn’t their candidate of choice.

It is likely that there will be plenty more hilarious shenanigans as protesters flood into DC. Multiple groups have vowed to attempt to shut down the inauguration completely, even plotting to attempt to stop the DC Metro public transportation lines.

Thousands of Bikers for Trump are also expected to also arrive in DC to act as a buffer between attendees and protesters.

We Are Change will be reporting live from the protests as well as the inauguration. Stay tuned.

Internet Outraged At Neocon Fake News Monster Judith Miller

Internet Outraged At Neocon Fake News Monster Judith Miller

avatar

Today, we are going to take a look at one of the worst examples of a mainstream media talking head: Judith Miller.

While many people were celebrating the news that President Obama commuted the bulk of Chelsea Manning’s sentence on Tuesday, the whistleblower’s name wasn’t the one trending on Twitter. But “Judith Miller” was.

The Fox News contributor, who described herself as a “First Amendment activist” and “political independent” on her Twitter page, posted a Tweet in which she had the audacity to write, Obama commutes sentence of Chelsea Manning. How many people died because of manning’ leak?”

 

 

If the name sounds familiar, it is because Miller is the same one who, as reporter for the New York Times, covered Saddam Hussein’s alleged weapons of mass destruction. Her work was then used by the Bush Administration in its “campaign to sell an Iraq invasion.”

Miller used anonymous government officials as sources (sound familiar?) to convince the American people that Hussein had WMDs, thus building the justification for the U.S. to invade Iraq.

 

When asked in April 2015 if she felt guilty for the massive lie that she promoted in 2001 as a trusted journalist, she said, “No, I don’t feel guilty.”

[READ MORE: Fake News Nuke…]

Let’s get back to Miller’s original question: How many people did Chelsea Manning kill by releasing information within the government that revealed human rights violations committed by our military? ZERO.
