CNN’s problems just went from bad to worse.
The fake news network is suffering from a twin crisis of credibility and declining ratings.
And Trey Gowdy drove the final nail in CNN’s coffin with this rude awakening.
The day of reckoning arrived for CNN and other fake news media networks.
Their Russian collusion conspiracy theory collapsed.
And the so-called “mainstream” media’s transparent advocacy for the Democrats to impeach President Trump is turning off millions of Americans.
Trey Gowdy drove these two points home during a recent appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity.”
Gowdy discussed the circus-like hearing House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings staged where the star witness was disgraced former Nixon White House lawyer John Dean.
Dean – who went to jail on obstruction of justice charges for his role in the Watergate scandal – testified that the conduct outlined in the Mueller report reminded him of Watergate.
Trey Gowdy dismissed this farce by pointing out that John Dean never served one day in the Trump administration and so his testimony was not about any specific set of facts.
It was all just speculation and gossip.
But Gowdy zeroed in on the real reason Cummings held the hearing and invited Dean to testify – so the fake news media could whip up the hype around impeachment.
The former South Carolina Congressman said it was a clear example of the media’s double standard.
“I hope you, even you, have realized now that duplicity and relativism with which Republicans are covered versus Democrats,” Gowdy told “Hannity” guest host former Congressman Jason Chaffetz.
“If you as the chairman of oversight had called on someone like John Dean, who is not a fact witness or a legal expert, about the best he can give you is a day in the life in federal prison. That is the best he can give you, you would be excoriated,” Gowdy continued.
Gowdy then trained his sites on the media.
The former Republican Congressman declared that from day one the media was out to destroy Donald Trump and they used the Russian collusion conspiracy to advance the anti-American agenda of nullifying the results of the 2016 election.
“This story, they wanted to get it started right after the inauguration. And they want to keep it going until November of 2020. And even having a pathetic, sad hearings that don’t benefit anyone other than the folks advertising on television, that is part of this effort to keep it alive,” Gowdy said.
Gowdy added that the media passing off fake news about Russian collusion as “facts” is the leading indicator for why the American people no longer trust the press as an institution.
“At some point, they need to ask themselves, I wonder why we are not trusted. I wonder why people think we are in the tank with the Democrats,” Gowdy said.
And there was no greater offender in perpetrating the Russian collusion hoax than CNN.
CNN kicked off the conspiracy theory by reporting on the existence of Christopher Steele’s dossier.
BuzzFeed then published the dossier in its entirety and Washington and the media became consumed with collusion fever.
But it was CNN’s decision – born out of hatred for Donald Trump and his supporters – that poured the kerosene and lit the match that ignited this fire that raged for two years.
However – in the end – the only thing torched was CNN’s credibility.
