Press Secretary Spicer Puts CNN On Notice For Attempt To Sabotage Trump

sean spicer trump russia story


Incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer had a few words to say about the fake news that was released by BuzzFeed and publicized by CNN regarding supposed events in a bedroom in Russia.

Spicer said, “Before we start, I want to bring your attention to a few points on the report that was published in BuzzFeed last night. It’s frankly outrageous and highly irresponsible for  a left-wing blog that was openly hostile to the President-elect’s campaign to drop highly salacious and flat-out false information on the Internet just days before he takes the oath of office.”

Spicer says, “According to BuzzFeed’s own editor, there are some serious reasons to doubt the allegations in the report. The executive editor of the New York Times also dismissed the report by saying it was ‘totally unsubstantiated,’ echoing the concerns that many other reporters expressed on the Internet.”

“The fact that BuzzFeed and CNN made the decision to run with this unsubstantiated claim is a sad and pathetic attempt to get clicks. The report is not an intelligence report, plain and simple.”

CNN was in that audience and their reporter, Jim Acosta, would later attempt to talk over the President-elect in demanding that he be allowed to ask a question. The debates are over, being mentioned in a news conference doesn’t carry with it an automatic right of rebuttal. CNN and BuzzFeed made an error in judgment.

The Trump team has been fighting back against this kind of brazen “make it up on the fly” kind of attack since the day he announced. They’re going to fight back, they’ve had enough and quite frankly, so have the American people.

As Mr. Trump went on to describe them in his exchange with Acosta, they are a terrible organization. They are fake news. They seriously damaged what was left of their credibility and their reputation with this one. It will be interesting to see how this affects their access to the President-elect in the future, but it certainly won’t be helpful, nor should it be.

  1. Yes !!! way past time to address and expose these wrong doings and air the truths and facts ! Swamp Swamp Swamp

  2. What does the slander law actually cover ? I would sue buzzfeed, cnn and john mccain very quickly.

  3. There should be no free meals for the fake news media. They do not understand and cannot lead a narrative, and we know that they certainly cannot successfully invent one any longer. So, no free meals, no more fake authority over the truth…and may they all have to sing for their supper in a different venue.

    CNN aka Clinton News Now is doomed!

  5. Trump can certainly enter a new era of simply using Twitter to report what he wants to and avoiding the tradition of the Press Conference as the primary dissemination of news to the public. Or why not sit and talk to the public via televised broadcast as so many world leaders do? Also, we have so many on-line sources and independent journalists. Look at the accuracy and proficiency of Rick Wells, for example. And, truly as radman says,CNN should be suspended from attending. I say indefinitely. False news is becoming an acceptable tactic to tarnish one’s image, and to discredit any individual or group.

  6. For their serious breach of journalistic integrity, CNN should be immediately relegated to “purgatory” for at least 6 months of introspection before then President Trump calls on them again to ask a question.
