We know that most major news outlets have a liberal bias. This comes from years of wanting to “challenge the system.” Journalists grew up with the idea that they must question everything and dig to find the truth.
Of course, for most of them that meant being liberal. After all, during the 1960’s Democrats were viewed as the party of the people, the party that will challenge the status quo and bring progress.
Yet years later, with the Democratic Party being the biggest, most bloated corpse of the dying political system, the media still holds onto the broken idea that they are progressive. This leaning has produced a media landscape that has invalidated the traditional ethics of journalism: find the truth and deliver it, unbiased, to the American public.
The worst offender among cable news stations is CNN. They have admitted to trying to propel Hillary Clinton in the past, spinning every story to her benefit. They have gone after Republicans and Donald Trump mercilessly.
Now they are even blatantly editing statements to protect Clinton’s already shattered image.
From Allen B West:
On CNN’s Newsroom yesterday, the network featured a highlighted tweet from GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump calling on his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton to release her medical records. Only problem? They conveniently scrubbed one word. Take a look and guess which one.
“I think that both candidates, Crooked Hillary and myself, should release detailed medical records. I have no problem in doing so! Hillary?”
However, the CNN version scrubbed the “Crooked” moniker from the tweet in it’s report, which was displayed on screen and read on air by anchor Jim Sciutto.
I think that both candidates, Crooked Hillary and myself, should release detailed medical records. I have no problem in doing so! Hillary?

This is laughably bad. Donald Trump, one of the most outspoken figures in recent memory, is known for his blunt nicknames. Nary a tweet is made without calling Hillary Clinton, “Crooked Hillary.”
The fact that CNN scrubbed the word from the tweet, even going as far as displaying an altered snapshot of the post, is pathetic. Do they really think the millions of followers of Trump hadn’t already read it?
Are they so worried about the fragile ego of Clinton, that they had to remove the word “crooked” from the tweet? Oh no! Our dear candidate might be offended by what her rival called her. This, despite the fact Hillary has called Trump racist, misogynistic, and homophobic over and over again (unjustly).
This act to shield their viewers from reality is quite appropriate. CNN hasn’t been reporting on the facts for years. They have been sucked into Hillary Clinton’s fantasy world, where the facts don’t matter. All that matters is the fictional narrative they and other liberals have spun.
Forget that everyone else knows the truth, right CNN? As long as you and your mindless viewers buy into the lie, then you’ll be happy.
No wonder their ratings are slipping below MSNBC.
