Fake News guru Jim Acosta and the flaming wreck that is CNN

CNN correspondent Jim Acosta erred on Thursday when he said it was "fake news" for President Trump, speaking Thursday in Poland, to state that it was "three or four" intelligence agencies who concluded that Russia had meddled in the 2016 election.

...

The New York Times last week, however, prominently corrected its own reporting on the matter.

In a story about Trump's "deflections and denials about Russia," it originally stated that "17 American intelligence agencies" concluded Russia had interfered in the election.

The Times' subsequent correction said "the assessment was made by four intelligence agencies"

CNN's Jim Acosta gets fact about intelligence community's Russia assessment wrong, calls it 'fake news'

Worse and worse. A complete train wreck.

So four agencies came to the conclusion that Russia meddled, while Trump continued to deny the probabilities. Which he now acknowledges. Sort of. Got it.

Yah, the news agencies are the problem.

Who do those Russians think

Who do those Russians think they are, "meddling" in our election? The Clinton or Obama administrations, openly meddling in the Israeli elections? The nerve of those Russkis (if you ignore the people who said that they actually did the releasing, that is), releasing authentic emails from the DNC and a Hillary Clinton private server that a ten year old could have gotten into.

Well, we had Barak Obama around to give Putin a stern talking-to, at least, as those dirty Russians totally ignored him and went about their nefarious business...umm, releasing authentic emails from someone who had "password" as a password...and didn't actually affect the 2016 election in any way that made any difference whatsoever.

Yes, sir, they got their pliable tool in Donald Trump, as he...ummm...proceeded to attack their puppet in Syria, kept sanctions in place on Russia, and promised to put back missile defenses that Barak Obama removed from Poland...? And told the NATO countries that they had to pony up and provide resources for their own defense...against Russia? Boy howdy, those Russians are a devious lot, aren't they? They engineered (supposedly) the election of Trump, and worked against the woman, who while Secretary of State did some engineering of her own and OK'd the selling of twenty percent of the American uranium stockpile...to a Russian? I can see why the Russians were so eager to get Trump now, can't you? Bad ol' Russians...

CNN is continuing its


CNN is continuing its downward spiral, as it took another blow about a week ago when it descended to No. 10 in primetime cable ratings, with more Americans tuning in to the History Channel, ESPN, HGTV and decades-old reruns on Nick At Nite than to the far-Left-leaning news network.

“Last week, more Americans tuned in to watch re-runs of Yogi Bear, Full House, and Friends on Nick At Nite than to watch Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon’s shows on CNN,” The Federalist reported.

CNN's ratings plummet to 10th in primetime

Not even Jasper is watching CNN anymore.

With the release of the

With the release of the Donald Trump Jr. emails, Kushner has pretty much been proved to have committed a felony:
https://www.reddit.com/r/NeutralPolitics/comments/6mo8m2/do_the_recently...

From the link:

"Kushner, unlike the rest of the gang here, took a job in the US government after the campaign. In that job, he got (and somehow still has) a security clearance.
To get that, you need to fill out form SF-86. That form asks:

Have you or any member of your immediate family in the past seven (7) years had any contact with a foreign government, its establishment (such as embassy, consulate, agency, military service, intelligence or security service, etc.) or its representatives, whether inside or outside the U.S.? (Answer 'No' if the contact was for routine visa applications and border crossings related to either official U.S. Government travel or foreign travel on a U.S. passport.)
Kushner according to press reports, answered 'no' to this question. This was an affirmative lie. Lying on that form is a felony. Jared Kushner provably committed that felony. He did so in relation to a matter that was recent (so he didn't have much time to forget) and where it was a matter of significant public interest where he would be unlikely to forget."

Edit: it's too bad, I kind of liked Kushner. BTW, not to toot my own horn but I totally called this a few months ago

AC,let's hope the prosecute Kuhner's horrendous felony with the same alacrity that they presued hilarity's multiple felonies....and violation of federal regulations.....What a joke the justice system is if they go after Kushner and leave hilarity,comey,lynch,lerhner unscathed....what a travesty.

Fair enough, though I find that NeutralPolitics and neutralnews are pretty even keeled and surprisingly troll-free, something that is a rare commodity on the internet these days.

Of course, if you're looking for something to help you confirm your existing beliefs you should probably stick with infowars.

And just what part of the Russian government di Don Jr. have contact with. You liberals are really grabbing for straws. Tim Kaine suggests maybe Don Jr. is guilty of treason. Do any of you know what treason is?

Someone is very touchy this afternoon. Is your latest issue of Cat Fancy late arriving? Or maybe someone was sitting in your favorite stool at Applebee's when you arrived for your weekly Mudslide and XL order of riblets?

A witch hunt! Boo hoo hoo!

A witch hunt! Boo hoo hoo! Fake news! Except it came from Doofus Jr's own email.

Can you imagine how moist Amoling's panties would be if it was found out that Chelsea and hillary's campaign manager had taken a meeting with a purported representative of the Iranian government to get campaign assistance?

We're too busy contemplating how Hillary arranged for 20% of the American uranium stockpile got sold to Russian interests while Bill suddenly got very lucrative speaking engagements in Russia "for the Clinton Foundation". Among other things...
