CNN Is Trying To Convince People They Aren’t Fake News With The Weirdest Ad You Have Ever Seen
In an attempt to combat the “Fake News” label with which they have been pinned by President Trump, CNN released a new ad Monday that uses fruit in a bizarre attempt to explain why they are in fact not inaccurate. There are a number of problems with this approach, starting with the fact that if you have to say you’re not “fake news”, then you most likely are at times “fake news”.

This looseness with the truth was most apparent in CNN’s coverage of the “Russia conspiracy” that supposedly involved President Trump in cahoots with a foreign power in order to “steal” the election. As if their open advocacy for Hillary Clinton were not enough, the network simply could not help itself from continuing to bash Trump once he became President, facts and accuracy be damned.
Now the same network whose support for the Democratic candidate led to it being dubbed “the Clinton News Network” is proclaiming its devotion to the facts. Count us as skeptical.
