(INTELLIHUB) — Since the moment that it was revealed that former Obama Administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice had ordered the “unmasking” of key Trump campaign members, establishment propaganda machine CNN has done everything in their power to downplay the startling revelations through a mixture of misinformation and outright lies.
The attempt to shoot down the shocking revelations, first revealed by independent journalist Mike Cernovich, started almost immediately at CNN with anchor Don Lemon openly declaring that he is purposefully covering up the story.
Lemon started his DNC approved segment with an outright lie, claiming that literal quotes from former Obama Administration official Evelyn Farkas were “debunked talking points” before going on to claim that the Susan Rice bombshell was fake news that his show would not be covering.
“The ‘Washington Post’ today calls the latest claims about Susan rice an anatomy of a fake scandal, ginned up by right-wing media and Trump. So let’s 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. On this program tonight, we will not insult your intelligence by pretending otherwise, nor will we aid and abet the people trying to misinform you, the American people, by creating a diversion. Not going to do it,” Lemon laughably said.
Next on the list of CNN talking heads to flat out lie about this key story was Chris Cuomo who claimed that it was not true that Rice had been involved in spying on the Trump team.
Amazingly, Cuomo even quotes a CIA disinformation specialist to make his point as if that somehow gives his propaganda credibility. Take note that this was all during an interview with a Democratic representative.
“We see the next piece of evidence, the next brick in this wall of what Phil Mudd, a very esteemed CIA guy calls ‘purposeful deception’ with this unmasking scandal, suggesting that unmasking is leaking when it isn’t, suggesting that Susan Rice was undertaking this crooked scheme of surveillance of the Trump folks, which is demonstrably untrue. If that’s what will be coming out and it’s going to be backed up by someone like Nunes, how is that oversight?”
Perhaps the most obvious proof that CNN essentially works for the Democratic Party is the fact that they have consistently used national security reporter Jim Sciutto to downplay the Rice revelations while failing to inform viewers that Sciutto is literally a former Obama operative who has also worked with Rice’s husband at ABC!
As Mediaite reported, “On Monday, CNN’s Jim Sciutto dismissed Bloomberg’s scoop on Susan Rice as “largely ginned up, partly as a distraction from this larger investigation.” However, the journalist failed to mention that he has a connection to the key figure in this story, as he once worked at the State Department during the Obama administration between 2011 and 2013.”
“This means that Sciutto and Rice both worked for the Obama White House. During the same time period, Rice was serving as President Barack Obama‘s ambassador to the United Nations.”
The report continued, “The journalist’s connection to Rice goes beyond the Obama administration, as RedState pointed out in a Tuesday post. Before he joined the State Department, Sciutto worked at ABC. During his time at the Big Three network, one of his colleagues was Ian Cameron, who happens to be married to Susan Rice.”
That’s right, the “reporter” claiming this bombshell story is “ginned up” is an Obama operative who has a personal relationship with the Rice family, a fact that CNN apparently doesn’t think its viewers should know.
On top of that, Cernovich has revealed that his source for the Rice bombshell actually came from within the mainstream media after multiple “news” outlets had the story and refused to publish it.
At this point it is stunningly clear that a vast majority of the establishment media is directly working with the Democrats to take down Donald Trump and are willing to lie, mischaracterize, and cover-up key stories in order to do so.
