CNN meltdown over Susan Rice allegations: tell viewers to ignore story

Grabien

Since news broke Monday that the Obama Administration’s National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, directed the “unmasking” of NSA intercepts of Trump associates, CNN has raced to shoot down the blockbuster report.

CNN Tonight’s Don Lemon went so far as to announce he would ignore the news at all costs.

While interviewing a Democratic congressman, CNN’s Chris Cuomo claimed it was “demonstrably untrue” Rice sought surveillance of the Trump team, even as that’s exactly what yesterday’s reports prove.

Over the last 24 hours, the network has also repeatedly called on its chief national security correspondent, Jim Sciutto, to dismiss the reports as a non-story; Sciutto has even excused Rice claiming ignorance of the unmasking scandal two weeks ago, arguing Rice “wasn’t aware” what unmasking Rep. Devin Nunes (D-Calif.) was referring to.

And on Tuesday’s “New Day,” anchor Alisyn Camerota openly pleaded with Sen. John McCain to write-off the news as unimportant.

Last night, Lemon began “CNN Tonight” with an announcement that the Rice report a “fake scandal ginned up by right-wing media and Trump” that he would not be baited into justifying with coverage.

“On this program tonight, we will not insult your intelligence by pretending,” it’s legitimate, he said. “Nor will we aid and abet the people trying to misinform you, the American people, by creating a diversion. Not going to do it.”

  1. Listen you jerk,——–Susan Rice woke up to what was going on. Her info was eating her alive to the negativity that you liberals in the media were doing to a decent man who only wants to make America great again. When lies are made for a cover-up it ends up floating to the surface and destroys. to the media and to the dem party you are sinking your own party and country. We aren’t going into the NWO without a fight and we are going to sink you. That is not what we want to live with it and move on.!!!!!!!

  2. Ray, I must commend you for your patience and grit in spending time with CNN to build stories like this. I could never do it.

    Thank you.
