CNN has been running around with its hair on fire for weeks trying to tie the Trump administration to Russia, using media reports about media reports and anonymous sources.
Along comes a real news story that implicates a member of the Obama administration in an unmasking scandal and they flatly refuse to report it. Amazing.
Mediaite has the details:
CNN’s Don Lemon: We Won’t ‘Aid and Abet the People’ Pushing Susan Rice ‘Diversion’
“Let us be very clear about this. There is no evidence whatsoever that the Trump team… was spied on illegally. There is no evidence that backs up the president’s original claim. And on this program tonight, we will not insult your intelligence by pretending otherwise, nor will we aid and abet the people who are trying to misinform you, the American people, by creating a diversion.”
Watch the video:
Here are some Twitter reactions:
.@donlemon refuses to report on the Susan Rice unmasking… claiming that CNN wont aid a diversion. In other words, theyre protecting Obama!
