Fake News: Credibility Is Not A Boomerang

Via Billy

New outlets, especially CNN are fighting the battle against fake news, forgetting their culpability in the same charge. On September 12th 2012 CNN broadcast the news about the Benghazi attack, accepting the Obama-Clinton explanation of an obscure internet video enraging the local population and inciting them to riot. Eventually, the truth came out that it was a terrorist attack, well planned and well executed. It resulted in the deaths of four Americans including the Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens. This narrative ran for years, but it was refuted by Amanpour on September 12th, 2012. How is it that the narrative of a spontaneous riot lasted years, when it was known on that very date that it was a terrorist attack?

When it comes to Obamacare, CNN and the rest of the liberal media hyped the idea that the Affordable Care Act would not only save money, but result in a $2,500 savings; that it would allow participants to keep their doctor and their insurance coverage.

Obama made this comment on health care during his weekly address on Aug. 15, 2009, in Washington.
"If you like your doctor, you're going to be able to keep your doctor," Obama said at George Mason University on March 19, 2010, in Fairfax, Va.
