To CNN Today’s NYC Terrorist Attack Was A Diet Coke

Ever since they were caught in the act of faking Friday’s “bombshell” news, CNN execs have been tripping all over their own neckties trying to make viewers forget that it ever happened.

“No one better describes the Lie Team than Glenn Greenwald.: (The Intercept, Dec. 9, 2017)

“Friday was one of the most embarrassing days for the U.S. media in quite a long time. The humiliation orgy was kicked off by CNN, with MSNBC and CBS close behind, with countless pundits, commentators and operatives joining the party throughout the day. By the end of the day, it was clear that several of the nation’s largest and most influential news outlets had spread an explosive but completely false news story to millions of people, while refusing to provide any explanation of how it happened.”

CNN won’t let a terrorist attack in New York City get in the way of their agenda of taking down the president

“But so far being “embarrassed” hasn’t stopped the networks from spreading their lies and likely never will. (Canada Free Press, Dec. 10, 2017)

“And don’t anybody hold their breath waiting for “an explanation of how it happened” because it is certain to be lies, bigger lies, and more lies.

CNN won’t let a terrorist attack in New York City get in the way of their agenda of taking down the president.

Rather than any explanation of how the faux bombshell story happened, today CNN borrowed a page from the Democrat playbook.  They embarked upon distracting rather than detracting.

Abracadabra! On to the next Fake News.

Today CNN tricksters were accusing President Donald Trump of “bullying” their 51-year-old anchor Don Lemon:

“In response to Donald Trump tweeting that CNN anchor Don Lemon is the “dumbest man on television,” the cable news network released a statement slamming the president for “engaging in the very same behavior” as “bullies [who] torment kids.” (Mediaite, Dec. 11, 2017)

“Trump was triggered to lash-out at the CNN Tonight host due to an article from the New York Times in which Maggie Haberman reported the president drinks a dozen Diet Cokes a day while watching hours of TV.

“Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch 4-8 hours of television a day – Wrong! Also, I seldom, if ever, watch CNN or MSNBC, both of which I consider Fake News. I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the ‘dumbest man on television!’ Bad Reporting,’” tweeted Trump.

“CNN responded to the slam against their reporter with the following statement: “In a world where bullies torment kids on social media to devastating effect on a regular basis with insults and name-calling, it is sad to see our president engaging in the very same behavior himself. Leaders should lead by example.”

In other words, CNN was telling the president: “Leave our 51-year-old kids alone!”

“The network’s response to Trump comes just after a video of a bullied Tennessee boy went viral, leading many of the internet’s biggest celebrities — including everyone from Demi Lovato to Sean Hannity — to offer support to the child and speak-out against bullying in general.” (Mediaite, Dec. 11, 2017)

To CNN, reporting on how many diet cokes the president drinks was more crucial than the New York terrorist attack

CNN bought into the New York Times story about the President drinking a dozen Diet Cokes a day, because when the rest of the media world was reporting on the morning rush hour terrorist attack in New York, CNN was reporting on the president drinking coke.

To CNN, reporting on how many diet cokes the president drinks was more crucial than the New York terrorist attack.

With their creds and ratings sinking, CNN made the desperado move of coming up with a new Apple Ad.


“This is an apple. Some people might try and tell you that it’s a banana,” the ad copy reads. “They might scream banana, banana, banana over and over and over again. They might put BANANA in all caps. You might even start to believe that this is a banana. But it’s not. This is an apple.

“If you’ve paid attention to President Trump’s tweets over the past 10 months, you’ve probably noticed a trend where the president consistently calls any media coverage that is negative toward the administration “fake news.”

“Trump has taken special aim at CNN, though. His most famous anti-media tweet could arguably be a video where Trump is seen body slamming a person with the CNN logo superimposed over his face.”

That wasn’t an apple.  That wasn’t a banana.  That wasn’t a real person but only the CNN logo.

Given the loud whining of Don Lemon who is now being compared to cyber-bullied children, CNN should have used a big lemon rather than an apple for their new ad.

If their viewers could do their own ad copy in response to the CNN Apple ad, it would be: “This is a terrorist attack going down in New York because the real news is not news of a president drinking Diet Coke.

“You might scream ‘Hate Donald Trump!’, “Hate Donald Trump!, “Hate Donald Trump!”; “Russia!” “Russia!”, “Russia!” over and over again, and “put it all in caps”—but this was a real terrorist attack!”

Meanwhile, it should go without saying what CNN can do with their apple.
