CNN is still trying to fix the huge problem they made in making the Buzzfeed announcement/bombshell their top story on Friday.
The network went all in, trying to tear down Pres. Trump. They brought in so-called experts on top of experts to explain what could happen to the Commander-in-chief “if the report was true.” I agree they prefaced their comments with that insurance policy, but they went all in on the negative aspect.
Toobin appeared on a CNN panel and seemed extremely concerned about the damage BuzzFeed caused or at least that is why CNN is crafting the narrative.
“The larger message that a lot of people are going to take from this story is that the news media are a bunch of leftist liars who are dying to get the president, and they’re willing to lie to do it,” Toobin said. “And I don’t think that’s true.”
“I just think this is a bad day for us … It reinforces every bad stereotype about the news media”
