Is CNN really FNN (Fake News Network)?

Opening Argument

I am a frequent viewer of the left side news network CNN. After the latest secret recording/s and the fake Russia story coming out against CNN, are they really FNN as Trump claims them to be?

    No, CNN's political correspondent was in fact referring to a different point of the story. Also, as he said last night on CNN, the video I highly edited.

    Trump tweeted another post, which is something I'd deeply agreed with. 

    These anchors and hosts are forced by their networks to be against the president, and not for him. Their position may not be what it forced upon them, but rather the polar opposite of it and that may be due to the pressure.
  • Yes, Trump is correct in that regard, in our debate tournaments, if we use CNN as a source we will never hear the end of it. That also applies to its Republican counterpart Fox news.

    @SnakesOfferingApples, glad you acknowledge that foxnews is just as "fake" as cnn.  I agree that some cnn coverage is too leftist, but disagree to call the entire network as fake.

    @CuriousGeorge Anything with indisputable credibility and honesty. Also preferably sources that acknowledge their bias, and put it aside for the sake of facts, because nobody is truly impartial.

  • A news network like CNN only converts the same story which is obstruction which ember occurred and Russia.

    I think that it is CNN because they are digging deep for real information regarding to politics and the corespondents and I mean all news channels whether it be Fox News or any other news station it's the media and the 21st century: not the greatest combination. Obviously they are all going to make things up because they are trying to exaggerate beyond need be and that's just what the media has come to with politics.

  • They are by no means fake news, but they are RIDICULOUSLY biased and come off as clickbait. I wouldn't call it news at all; they do a terrible job of reporting.

    CNN faking news. 











    I'm wondering how long it's going to take the majority to realize it's all staged.

    Just because someone disagrees with CNN for attacking Trump, doesn't mean Trump the right to call them fake news overall.

  • FNN - they make it their business to feed bs against Trump . Thats how they attract viewers
  • It doesn't matter if CNN is fake news or not.  I believe CNN is fake news.  Dirt was exposed on the scum bag Hilary Clinton, and all CNN can do is freak out that someone hacked the DNC.  I don't care who hacks who so long as the dirt is uncovered.  I hope the Russians keep on hacking, and exposing liars like her who corrupt our government.  I welcome all governments to hack our elections whenever possible, so long as the filth of the democratic party is exposed.  It would be a blessing for the United States to be rid of them once and for all.

    CNN are senationalist, and tend to have a left wing editorial.

    That doesn't make them fake.


    The only real people who claim CNN is "Fake News" is trump and his supporters. This is a way of trying to de-legitimize the press, and CNN. The Mainstream media present news stories indicating that Trump and his team are repeatedly lying about many things: most specifically almost anything regarding Russia. As Trump and his administration seem unable to present a narrative, intelligent response or explanation for their actions, their only option is to make the people that support him not beleive them.

    @Gooberry CNN needs to understand that they are effecting the credibility and reputation of the United States and it's Commander In Chief. Trump is not embarrassing the nation as they claim, but the fake news like FNN is.

    I agree.  I'd go a step further and imprison all the democrats that are colluding against The United States and President Trump.  It's treason, pure and simple.

    "Just because someone disagrees with CNN for attacking Trump, doesn't mean Trump the right to call them fake news overall."  

    Yeah, but bias correlates to misconstruing fact and statistics, and that's what makes CNN "fake"

    Bias ---> Misconstruing Facts ----> Lying 
    There's a reason why bias completely delegitimizes an argument, because a biased argument, is most likely a argument.

    @ale5 CNN isnt fake news for attacking Trump. They have been caught faking protests, rescues, etc and have been talking nonstop about Russia since November last year.
