CNN has been caught once again peddling lies as if they were real, Trump-shattering facts. This is far from the first time, of course, but it has been happening so much that even left-wing Intercept writer Glenn Greenwald has been forced to slam the U.S. legacy media for its constant stream of lies. Greenwald says the U.S. old media establishment has earned the title “fake news.”

The latest CNN cockup occurred on Friday, December 8 when the cable “news” network pushed out a story insisting that Donald Trump, Jr., was colluding with Wikleaks — an Internet site that many say works with the Russians — with the leaker site giving Trump secret info about the Democrat Party’s “hacked” emails giving the Trump campaign a decided advantage toward the end of the 2016 campaign for president.

But, not long after the release of the big splash story that CNN sold as a “bombshell” that “proved” that Trump was colluding with the Russians… well, the truth came out. It turns out that Wikileaks was not giving team Trump a secret heads up on damaging information leaked from the Democrats. It turns out all the info had already been made public, so no advantage at all was extant for Trump.

CNN was forced to admit that it’s “bombshell” was more like a dud.

This was a final straw for liberal columnist Glenn Greenwald who took to his Intercept column to slam the U.S. media for being so slipshod that it ends up giving its enemies so much ammunition to call the news “fake news.”
