Huh? What? CNN Says Media Mistakes Are Exactly Why You Should Trust Them

This next story is incredibly bizarre, even for Democrats, and it’s good we have videos so we can prove it to you. David Frum, the senior editor of the Atlantic, excused media’s gross misreporting in a most peculiar way.

CNN just came off a major error. They reported a fake story about Donald Trump Jr. getting secret encryptions keys for Democrat data leaked by Wikileaks. As is turned out, CNN gave the wrong date. The Trumps received the data on the same day everyone else did. It was the Trumps and 12 million other people who read it by that date.

The excuse on Reliable Sources by Mr. Frum is it’s a great process and it’s this process of screwing up that should make us trust them more. [He didn’t say ‘screwing up’ of course]

“The mistakes are precisely the reason people should trust the media. Astronomers make mistakes all the time because science is a process of discovery of truth. Astrologers never make mistakes or at least they never own up to them because what they are offering is a closed system of ideology and propaganda,” Frum told Stelter.

Tell that to your bank and see how it works for you.

He’s comparing the unvetted reporting by the media, which they do to get clicks and hurt Trump, with the process of scientific inquiry.

Frum then said the media is working off lies by the opposition and it’s not their fault basically.

Really? Did the Trumps give them the wrong date of the Wikileaks release? No! Did Trump say Mueller was requesting his bank records from Deutsche bank? No! Did Trump tell Brian Ross to fabricate a story that Ret. Lt. Gen. Flynn would testify against President Trump? No again!

That was mistakes in only one week! And it’s not all the mistakes that were made.

Frum said the opposition tells too many lies for them to keep up and that’s another reason for the false reporting.

Sure, Frum, we’ll fall for that one.

His explanation to a confused Stelter was even more confusing than his previous statements. Journalists only “approximate the truth”, he said, because of “bad faith actors”.

None of that explains why they constantly lie about the Republicans and make up false stories.

This guy is a senior editor! Such is that state of journalism today.

Taking his ridiculous hypothesis into everyday life, one might say women who get beaten by their husbands should put up with it because it’s the process of love.

  1. We’re also supposed to trust them on fake climate change (I remember in the 1970s when they predicted an impending ice age) and when they dismissed President Clinton’s scandalous affair with Monica (because back then “it was only sex”) and John Kerry’s false stories about his service in Vietnam (that the media kept pushing). Do I need to go on?

  2. i would not trust CNN or MSNBC as far as I could throw one of their fat executives.
    They are propaganda arms of the extreme left and only the mentally lazy or stupid people accept the preposterous conclusions and bullshit they have to say/propose.

    I am a former U.S. Marine Officer and a lawyer and I am ashamed of Robert Mueller’s performance as “special counsel”. COMEY WAS/AND STILL IS CROOKED/CORRUPT AS A DOG’S HIND LEG
    Robert Mueller will soon discover that it is illegal to present yourself as a special counsel or investigator in
    a situation. set of facts wherein YOU YOURSELF ARE A WITNESS AND AS WELL A DEFENDANT.

    Rodney RosenSTAIN knew when he appointed Mueller that Mueller was a possible criminal defendant in the Russia Collusion/.Ur anus One/, the “DOSSIER’ ” and the intentional obstruction of justice by the destruction BY THE CLINTON CARTEL of THIRTY THREE THOUSAND EMAILS AND THE GIVING UP OF GOVERNMENT SECRETS AND CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS.. Many, Many, federal statutes have been violated, enough to put the Clinton Cartel folks in prison for three lifetimes.
    TRUST ME FOLKS, Mueller, RosenstAIN, and Comey are political operatives/HACKS and not Judicial Good guys and they can be removed by any citizen who files an action in the PROPER U.S. DISTRICT COURT for criminal acts of fraud and numerous other criminal acts. Get a Devon Nunes or Trey Gowdy in as Attorney General before it is way too late, and we are fixing bayonets to defend our families, children, churches, and way of life. All of the money which the Clinton Fund has can be seized as ill gotten gain.
    WRIT OF MANDAMUS, WRIT OF MANDAMUS, REMOVAL OF COUNSEL FOR CRIMINAL ACTS IN WHICH HE IS ”INVESTIGATING”
    Did they ever discover who killed the assistant to “MORNIN’ JOE IN HIS FORMER CONGRESSIONAL OFFICES?????/ did they ever find out how the Clinton’s special friend committed suicide by shooting himself in the back of the head TWICE??!! did they ever discover who killed the guy who was ready to spill the beans on the Clintons to Wicki Leak, (Seth Rich was shot in the back/killed and they called it a robbery
    but no money, jewelry was taken from his person. How much longer are we going to allow this huge criminal cartel, (including the main Street media), to control our lives?????
    Do you want your child to get beaten up at the U. of Calif/Berserkely because he has his own opinion of the world??
    Mueller couldn’t be a pimple on the ass of Mad dog Mattis or Gentleman John Kelley,
    How many mainstream news networks carried the news on the front page/;line that a Judge convicted a white cop of killing an unarmed black man?????? FRONT PAGE NEWS?? Har, Har, Har, Har
