CNN’s new parodied advertisement had the mission to hide one important scandal.
It turns out that they are mixed up with the creation of the fake dossier for President Trump.
The expert who kept reporting stories about the dossier for CNN is connected to Fusion GPS, the group that actually created the report.
The Daily Caller reported: “CNN’s reporting on the dossier, led by justice correspondent Evan Perez, has been favorable to the firm, Fusion GPS, and hyped the dossier’s credibility.”
According to Conservative Tribune: “Left out of Perez’s reporting, which has relied largely on unnamed sources, is his personal closeness to Fusion GPS’ operatives. Fusion has repeatedly been described in Senate testimonies as a smear-for-hire operation that manufactures misleading or false media narratives for its clients.”
The co-founder of Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson was involved with the creation of the dossier, by working with Perez during the time when they were at The Wall Street Journal. Also, Tom Catan and Peter Fritsch are the other co-founders who were involved with the WSJ.
Perez was connected with Fritsch and the Wall Street Journal reporter Neil King, who joined Fusion GPS after the photo with Perez emerged in August 2016.
“At no point in Perez’s reporting did he disclose his close ties to the Fusion GPS operatives,” The Daily Caller reported.
Regarding the fake dossier, there was one opinion piece: “The British historian Ben Macintyre has still given the best critical appraisal of the dossier, in an offhand comment to The New York Times, based on what he says were his conversations with other graying manes from Her Majesty’s Secret Service. ‘They set up an ex-MI6 guy, Chris Steele, who is a patsy, effectively, and they feed him some stuff that’s true, and some stuff that isn’t true, and some stuff that is demonstrably wrong. Which means that Trump can then stand up and deny it while knowing that the essence of it is true. And then he has a stone in his shoe for the rest of his administration.’”
The revelation of Hillary Clinton’s work with the DNC to fund the dossier was reported by the network. However, CNN pundit Chris Cillizza blamed the White Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders of “massive exaggeration” after she showed the evidence of bankrolling by Clinton and DNC with Russia.
Jake Tapper came forward and said: “Certainly some of the more lurid charges in that dossier remain uncorroborated, but some of the details have been proven accurate.” He was against the claim that involved Michael Cohen, the lawyer of President Trump, shortly after the dossier was revealed in January.
