Boy. This story gives a whole new meaning to the expression: “Don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining.”
CNN has outdone itself in the “fake news” department, haven’t they?
Trump Derangement Syndrome sure has reached a fever pitch at CNN headquarters.
In their ongoing mission to destroy Donald Trump, CNN decided to run with a completely made up story created by a 4Chan user.
Earth to CNN: If Buzzfeed is “breaking” a story, my advice is to ignore it.
From Zero Hedge:
In a story that is getting more surreal by the minute, a post on 4Chan now claims that the infamous “golden showers” scene in the unverified 35-page dossier, allegedly compiled by a British intelligence officer, was a hoax and fabricated by a member of the chatboard as “fanfiction…”
“Fan fiction.” Boy, I bet Jake Tapper is feeling like a complete douche right about now.
This “fan fiction” was sent to #NeverTrumper Rick Wilson last fall. And Wilson, like CNN, wanting to believe any negative “news” about Trump, actually sent it on to the CIA.
Only a moron would believe that Donald Trump paid Russian prostitutes to urinate on the bed Barack Obama was to sleep in when he went to Russia.
Honestly, that sounds like something the Wildly Inaccurate Dianny News Service would report.
But Buzzfeed fell for it and then CNN tripped all over themselves to report on it.
The sweet, sweet irony of all this is how the Enslaved Press’ “Fake News” narrative has completely unraveled around them.
It’s hard to take seriously a news outlet’s fearmongering over a supposed epidemic of “fake news” when the news outlet themselves are so quick to fall for “fake news.”
The fact that the CIA included this bit of fiction as part of their “intelligence” against Russia means one of two things.
Either the CIA is populated by idiots or they are so politically partisan they’ll do anything to smear the incoming president.
Neither conclusion is particularly comforting.
Zero Hedge has an excellent timeline of this moronic story. It’s worth reading.
You won’t know whether to laugh or to cry.
Because while it is on the one hand hysterical that so many people fell for the textbook definition of “fake news,” it is also pretty disheartening.
The virulent hatred for Donald Trump has undermined not only the integrity and reputation of the Enslaved Press, but of the intelligence community as well.
As an added bonus, it also made Rick Wilson look like a fool.
There is a silver lining here.
By being punked so completely by fictional “documents” sent to troll a #NeverTrumper, the likelihood that CNN will ever regain its reputation has been erased.
And I put that in the Win column.
Jim Hoft over at the Gateway Pundit also provides an excellent take-down of the supposed “leaked document.”
