Whittle Thoughts: Can CNN Ever Recover From Their Trump/Russia Reporting Debacle? 3/27/19

The media published over 530,000 articles over the past two years on the Trump/Russian collusion hoax. That means these journalism outlets were publishing multiple stories per day on this hoax with mostly anonymous sources in addition to incorrect and unverifiable information as they pushed a narrative I am convinced most of them knew was a lie but wanted so badly to be true.

CNN went all in with Trump/Russia collusion almost 24/7 for the past two years and have so damaged their credibility that it may take years to recover the little credibility they had left. In fact, they may never be able to gain their credibility back. At a time when there are countless news sources online for Americans to access, CNN threw away all objective journalism standards and let their personal bias toward Trump guide their news coverage daily. Now CNN and the majority of the mainstream media have egg all over their faces now that the collusion charge has been proven not true.

Americans no longer need cable news to view the news daily. They don’t need CNN. They have Twitter and Facebook. CNN had the chance to stand out in a world of fake news both on air and online and provide America with accurate, factual, objective journalism which would’ve boosted their viewership to unseen levels. Instead, they made the disastrous error of going all in on anti-Trump and the network’s credibility may never recover.
