KIRSTERS BAISH| It has just been released that Dan Weber, President of the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC) has filed a formal complaint the FCC requesting that they delve into CNN’s airing of FAKE NEWS. Yes, you read that correctly, CNN has been feeding the citizens of the U.S. false information. The formal complaint was officially filed upon footage of Van Jones and producers stating that the Russian-jacking story is completely false.
In Weber’s press release he stated:
“It became clear CNN personnel are violating FCC rules by ‘knowingly broadcasting false information.’ It is the FCC’s chartered duty to prevent broadcasters from knowingly airing false information, and that’s why I am filing a formal complaint with the agency.”
During Jake Tapper’s broadcast on Friday a fake National Enquirer cover was displayed, sending CNN into a complete freak-out. On “The Lead” show Tapper was doing a piece on Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski’s accusation that President Trump attempted to blackmail them with a big piece in the National Enquirer.
The segment displayed a cover piece from the tabloid magazine, which was shockingly scandalous involving GOP senator Ted Cruz and wife, Heidi Cruz. According to officials the cover is in fact completely false with no true information to stand on. Said cover headlines “Heidi Cruz” Betrayed by Cheating Husband!” The cover alludes to details of a threesome and explicit details about something that never happened. This cover has NEVER been displayed on the front of any National Enquirer issue. Most likely it was created as shocking clickbait, which can be chalked up to fake news.
Now after Tapper’s claims against CNN and the publication of a Russia-related article that was later retracted, three journalists have stepped down from their positions at CNN. One of the journalists who stepped down was also the executive editor who was in charge of CNN’s new investigative unit. The story in question claimed that Congress was delving into an investigation on a “Russian investment fund with ties to Trump officials.” The source was sited as anonymous. Not so credible, and probably the reason why the story was later retracted.
CNN remains under fire, and it is unlikely that many Americans will trust them as a genuine source for their news after a debacle like this.
