    this fix with buzzfeed to push a blatant fake news work us an all time low.

    I'm not here to discuss the fake news as there's a thread on it. I'm asking how CNN can come back from this.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this story was planted on purpose to ruin the liberal media and make them more unbelievable.

    Liberals still need an outlet for Anti-Trump news.

    Like there's any shortage of those.

    As for CNN it's not like they have much credibility after the collusion with HRC during the debates but getting trolled by 4Chan is a new low.

    I don't know if it will sink them given their history, but I think they crossed a line they haven't crossed before. At least not on this scale.

    This is some seriously embarrassing shit.

    CNN is having a bad new year. Putting a drunk Don Lemon on the air, fake news and Trump about to become president.

    Nothing, really. Apparently Buzzfeed fucked up and people are trying to tie it to CNN.

    CNN made it pretty clear what they could and could not verify. Their story holds up well. Buzzfeed's story was irresponsible.

    That's what I suspected but I do not follow CNN closely and the TS, who has a record of shitty threads, didn't even clarify what stories are sinking them.

    No.

    After this, any news outlet that ran with this story will always be suspect.

    How could you ever trust a news organization that put out a false story simply because they wanted it to be true?

    4chan basement dwellers trolled Buzzfeed, CNN and it appears even the CIA with a load of fake revelations about Trump, ranging from his ties with Russia to him hiring prostitutes to give him golden showers. CNN and Buzzfeed (along with Huffpost, NYtimes, NSNBC etc) have been running with these fake news stories as if they are fact.

    This was clearly done to highlight how untrustworthy these media outlets are and how gullible and retarded their viewer base/readership is. It has succeeded in spectacular fashion.

    CNN reported that Obama and Trump had been briefed on some shit concerning claims about Russian operatives and Trump etc. Which they were. So, basically, they reported the news.

    Then Buzzfeed released those unverified claims and PISSGATE began. It's not really to do with CNN.

    The big question here is....what's wrong with getting the "golden shower" once in a while?
