The journalists at CNN must be among the slowest learners on the planet when it comes to learning from your mistakes. That is especially true in their efforts to use anonymous sources in their never-ending attacks upon President Donald Trump. In this latest case of pounding your head into the keyboard, they were reporting that President Trump would NOT confront Russian Premier Vladimir Putin about Russian meddling in the Presidential election. Not only did the leader of the free world go there, but he went there more than once. Where does CNN find these anonymous sources? They need to vet their sources a little better, don’t you think?
As Written By Michael Bastasch for the Daily Caller:
All week, CNN anchors cited an anonymous source who claimed President Donald Trump would not confront Russian President Vladimir Putin about election meddling in their meeting at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.
That source turned out to be dead wrong.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who was present at the two-hour Friday meeting, said Trump almost immediately “pressed” Putin on attempts to influence public opinion in the 2016 election.
Tillerson said Trump “pressed” Putin on election meddling “on more than one occasion.” Putin denied Russia ever tried to interfere.
“The two leaders agreed that this is a substantial hindrance on the ability of us to move Russian-U.S. relationships forward and agreed to exchange further work regarding commitments of noninterference in the affairs of the United States and our democratic process as well as those of other countries,” Tillerson said.
“So more work to be done in that regard,” he said.
That’s not good news for CNN, which had for days been citing an anonymous source who claimed Trump would not bring up Russian efforts to sway voters through cyber attacks and online messaging……..
