Facepalm: CNN Legal Analyst Worries BuzzFeed Foul-Up Makes The Media Look Like A Bunch Of Leftists Looking To Take Out Trump

Is CNN this dense? I know—you already know that they are. You’re not wrong, but in the wake of BuzzFeed’s appalling mishap concerning their shoddy story that President Trump had ordered his former personal lawyer to lie to Congress about a real estate deal in Russia, how is this analysis anything but an exercise in a lack of self-awareness. It’s tragicomic. These folks honestly think they’re a) unbiased, and b) not part of the anti-Trump ethos that has permeated the media since 2015. 


Speaking about this foul-up, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said, “The larger message that a lot of people are going to take from this story is that the news media are a bunch of leftist liars who are dying to get the president and that they’re willing to lie to do it.”

Yes, Jeff. That’s exactly it. It’s spot-on, actually. To make things even more humiliating for the opposition media, it was the Mueller investigation, which has looked into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin during the 2016 election for nearly two years, who said the BuzzFeed story was inaccurate. 

From CNN to ABC News, the Democrat-media complex is trying to get Trump. We’ve all known this for quite some time. Does the liberal media have amnesia, dementia, CTE? You’ve fact-checked Trump over fast food, said that he knew about the innocuous, pointless, and total waste of time of a meeting between his son and some Russians in Trump Tower in 2016. Your source retracted the entire premise. The liberal media peddled that candidate Trump ordered Michael Flynn to contact the Russians during the campaign. Wrong. It was after Trump won the 2016 election as part of the standard protocol of laying down a new diplomatic framework from a new incoming administration. That story tanked the markets. Oh, and let’s not forget CNN being unable to report on Trump feeding fish accurately. And Trump wasn’t the first president to Bush 41 to not take questions while making his first visit to China. Remember Barack Obama, folks? Oh, and what about Donald Trump, his son, and other campaign officials supposedly getting a code key granting access to the trove of documents that were released by Wikileaks prior to being made public? Collusion! Nope. That email, sent by a donor, did indeed have a key, but Wikileaks had made all the documents public the previous day. They couldn’t read email timestamps properly. 


So, please, with this history of serial failure in covering this White House and this Russia probe, you bet there are a bunch of rabid liberals out to clip Trump. CNN, we’ve known this for years. Also, this was an exercise in a lack of self-awareness that was quite appalling.
