    It is interesting to see the two sides trying to pin the other guys narrative on the originator like they do with snowflake and fake news.

    This sure is going to be a bumpy 4 or 8 years.

    Remember where I castigated another member in a different thread for political team sport hackery?

    Are you saying the media resembles the presidency they've been working with for the past 8 years?

    I agree!

    Not a fan of what Trump did, but CNN deserves a good spanking (possibly by the audience). Falling for that report is unforgivable.

    You do realize he's not president, right?

    You said we have a fake president. I agree.

    LOL CNN trying to say what is and what isn't appropriate. Every single person who bought the buzzfeed and CNN articles related to P-gate are looking like fools right now lol. They got trolled.

    You realize that I meant Trump. I know you do. But you continue your sad narrative.

    Breaking news, we have learned that media giant Clinton News Network (CNN) is officially changing their name to Fake News Network (FNN). FNN (formerly CNN) CEO Jeff Zucker, wearing an "I'm with her" t-shirt and holding a therapy dog, made the following statement "In light of the election results we have decided to re-brand the organization in order to reinforce our commitment to provide the public with highly accurate, factual and unbiased news.".

    You said president. When you say that, I have to assume you are referring to...the president.

    Trump got schooled. That's what happened. He has now learned the difference between credible and non-credible intelligence briefings. Maybe he'll start paying attention.

    The only fool is Trump. The man who has spent years broadcasting fake news - the man who tried to delegitimize Obama over a birth certificate - just got smacked with a big case of Karma.

    Doesn't matter if it's true or not. There will be forever seeds of doubt whenever Trump and Russia are mentioned together. He won't be able to escape it. And he doesn't have the temperament to handle it with grace.

    No one will care in a day or two about CNN or Buzzfeed. They can't unsee the report - fake or not.

    See I corrected you the first time with who I meant yet you still pursued it. That's on you and your inability to read correctly.

    "Won't someone rid me of this troublesome reporter?" would have been obnoxious. Unless CNN craves pardon soon, that may be what the next CNN reporter hears.

    No you tried correcting yourself. You're the one who made the Freudian slip.

    "pile of garbage" <- If someone in power called you that would it not be obnoxious?

    If by "you" you mean a politicized fake news organization that has traditionally been in the tank for Democrats, then I'd have to say "guilty as charged".

    Trump's just started getting payback for Candy Crowley.

    LOL no. Were you one of the ones that said Trump wouldn't win the primary? Or how the "grab them by the P" tape was going to sink him? That there was no way that he was going to beat Hillary? That the electoral college wouldn't vote for him? The Russian "hacking" didn't work, this was played out by /pol tossed around to journalist to journalist until one took the bait. Every single one of them look like idiots. This is just further proof that the media in the US is a joke, has been a joke for a long time.
