CNN doesn’t hide the fact that they hate Donald Trump.
Their Trump Derangement Syndrome has caused them to get countless stories wrong in embarrassing fashion.
But one lawsuit just ruined CNN’s credibility forever.
Ever since Trump dubbed CNN “very fake news,” the network has stooped to new lows in order to prove him right.
Reports show that the network’s coverage of Trump is over 90% negative, so it’s no surprise that when they have to correct their bad reportage, it’s always happening in one direction; the knee-jerk story is negative toward Trump, and the reversal always cuts in CNN’s favor.
A glaring example of this came when three CNN reporters were fired for writing that former Trump staffer Anthony Scaramucci was under investigation for ties to a Russian oligarch.
The only fact regarding the story was that the three reporters lost their jobs.
In a sea of fake news, one bad Trump story doesn’t even register.
Nevertheless, the incessant blunders have cratered CNN’s brand and ratings.
The network is perpetually behind Fox News and whatever reruns are playing on History Channel.
More people watch repeats of “Ancient Aliens” than CNN.
But if anyone thought CNN’s credibility couldn’t sink any lower, it just did.
The network recently settled with Covington Catholic student Nicholas Sandmann as part of a massive $800 million lawsuit against several major news outlets.
Sandmann and his classmates from the school, some of whom donned MAGA hats, were harassed by a radical group known as the Black Hebrew Israelites while on a field trip in Washington, D.C.
This is the same group affiliated with the recent murders outside a kosher deli in New Jersey in a failed plot to attack a Jewish school.
The students were also confronted by a Native American man named Nathan Phillips.
Sandmann and his cohorts were crucified by the media for standing in the public square while Phillips banged his drum in their faces and the Black Hebrew Israelites hurled racist and homophobic slurs at them.
But all the media saw were the MAGA hats—so they ran with their narrative that the boys were bullying and mocking an elderly Native American.
Former CNN host Reza Aslan even said on Twitter that he wanted to punch Sandmann in the face.
Yet even after the full video of the incident came out and showed that the Covington Catholic kids did nothing wrong, the media still pushed forward with their narrative.
They dug through the kids’ lives and tried to smear the Catholic school in an attempt to avoid a mea culpa.
The media dug up pictures of students on the basketball team making the “OK sign” and reported that it was actually a sign co-opted by white supremacists.
But that narrative fell apart when it was explained that holding up three fingers is the universal basketball signal for a three-point shot.
So they moved on to a picture of fans painting themselves black and argued it was a blatant example of blackface.
And that too quickly imploded when it was reported that the body paint was part of a “blackout” where all home fans wear black to support the team.
Teams with other color schemes have similar fan engagement for big games.
The media never apologized to Sandmann nor recanted their numerous smear campaigns, and for that, they’re going to pay handsomely.
The terms of the settlement with CNN haven’t been disclosed, but Sandmann sued the network directly for $275 million.
At the very least, CNN will likely pay tens of millions of dollars for their horrendous and destructive reporting.
