The mainstream media, as it is called, is becoming less and less trustworthy, as evidenced by its declining readership and viewership. One of the worst offenders of biased, politically lopsided and factually incorrect coverage is CNN.
In a recent “fact check” segment of a Trump speech attacking his likely Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, host Tom Foreman tried to debunk several claims Trump had made, but purposely distorted what he had said, took things out of context and was just incorrect about other things.
For example, as Breitbart News reported:
“The reality check team was very busy during all of this [speech],” Foreman said. “Trump attacked Clinton’s plan to increase the number of Syrian refugees taken into America.”
Foreman then played video footage of Trump’s speech in which Trump said, “Under her [Clinton’s] plan, we would admit hundreds of thousands of refugees from the most dangerous countries on Earth – with no way to screen who they are, what they are, what they believe, where they come from.”
‘CNN is apparently unaware…’
Like him or hate him, there is nothing that Trump said that wasn’t factually true. The Obama administration’s own FBI director, James Comey, for instance, has said that there is no way to vet these people because the Syrian government and civil society is all but gone. The country is a mess, and very little of its normal governmental apparatuses are functioning – not that Syria was an ally of the U.S. in the first place.
