CNN is corrupt...

CNN is a corrupt liberal political narrative machine.

I saw on the news where the new DNC chair, Donna Brazile, gave the Clinton camp a heads-up on town hall questions while still with CNN and other close associations the MSM has with the Clinton camp and the DNC. But, on the nightly news, ABC, CBS, these email leaks were strangely absent. I wonder why?

What's sad is I'm now convinced that Hillary's corruption is ignored by liberals because...

Sadly, she is representative of their own hearts and minds...

Side: CNN is corrupt

They see her as them and, therefore, OK in their book.

And once it became public? They fired her. An admittance of guilt.

Side: CNN is corrupt

They use green screen to pretend they are at actual events. They rig Presidential debates. They give a false, inaccurate news narrative. They blackout news. That's corruption.

By that definition, basically every cable news outlet is corrupt.

Anyone who denies the corrupton of our free press is beyond stupid.

We now have a free press taking sides in our elections. This is beyond corrupt. Our entire two party system has been destroyed and we are now seeing how the worst president in our history got elected twice and a proven criminal perjurer might get elected next. This is no different than the Taliban who controled the press in Afganistan. Remember how Saddam Hussien controlled the media in Iraq?

Like with all dictatorships, when the Government controls the media, they control the people. It's called big brother.

Other than Fox news, every other network news programming is pro Hillary and Pro the Democrat party.

ABSOLUTELY NO QUESTION ABOUT IT.

Making false news, or not reporting real news is not bias. It's corruption.

speaking from personal experience as a teleprompter, i can say with certainty that most of the people i've experience personally are certain that most of the people we contact are personally experienced in that area

It's intriguing how a channel with an official rating figure of 40% can offend 90% of the population.

That's quite a feat in itself so you must give them credit where credit is due.

Just so you're aware, almost every news outlet does this. Most major news outlets don't even send reporters to the middle east or warzones anymore.

Which would almost be a lovely response, except that? Almost all major media are liberal.

CNN is essentially the mirror opposite of Fox News. Whether or not that equals corrupt is up to you. Are you ready to declare Fox News also corrupt?

During this race, no. Fox News was largely anti-Trump until recently. They do still question much of what Trump says, and they do not fake the presidential polls that they feature on their network. They also are the only network reporting on the wikileaks emails, which contain some very important information, such as the collusion between the MSM and Clinton's camp. Because of those emails, we have proof that CNN is corrupt, and if you don't like using the word 'corrupt', then you should be able to admit that they are playing dirty. They are using their position as a news network to brainwash viewers into supporting their agenda, and that of an individual who has no business influencing the media.

Think about what you just wrote. Fox News was against Trump (while the had a chance for one of their other favorited conservatives to get the nomination) and then after it turned out to be Trump they've been all for him.

Corrupt

They tow the party line.

On some level, but the main difference is they do a full disclosure on their position where CNN does not.

Corrupt -

Not reporting real news on purpose.

Reporting fake or false news.

Giving questions to Hillary Clinton before the debate.

Following up with Donald Trump in debates and not with Hillary.

Interupting Trump and not Hillary in debates.

Allowing Hillary an earpiece at debates after making rules prohibiting ear pieces.

Saying Obama has no scandals? bwahahahahahaha! He has the most of all time.

So, you are corrupt. You are reporting things that are false.

Corruption is not the same as bias. Unless you have something actually exposing them as corrupt which, I mean, it's the media, I'm sure there are dirty dealings somewhere in all of them.

Side: CNN is not corrupt

Ah for ''Fox'' sake, why single out C.N.N.

I like C.N.N.

When I'm on holidays in Europe most hotels have SKY television with English speaking channels, and it's always good to hear that big dramatic American accent announcing, ''This is C.N.N''.

I watch them both. Fox News will spin news and debate against liberal arguments, but CNN actually creates false news and suppresses real news. And per wikileaks we know the media has helped Hillary Clinton according to herself. That's corruption.

Well, you're so convinced of the validity of your allegations I feel that you should put your money where your big gub is and confront these corrupt charlatans in a court of law.

Corruption is a pretty heavy allegation.

It's literal meaning is to be willing to act dishonestly in return for money.

You're on very thin ice when you accuse the executives, employees and/or agents of a major licenced news broadcasting company of accepting bribes to transmit false information to the nation.

Think about it Bonzo.

If there was any truth in your allegations this News corporation could, and almost certainly would lose its broadcasting licence.

I think Cartman got it right when he said you are confusing bias with corruption.

Maybe they put their own slant on certain news stories and deprioritize other news items which means they end up at the bottom of the pile.

That's not corruption, unprofessional perhaps, but not corruption.

B.T.W., by down voting those with whom you disagree is doing exactly what you're accusing C.N.N., of.

Wise up, grow up and shut the 'Fox' up.

Side: CNN is corrupt

In wikileaks we found out, not that they are biased, but that they actually give questions to democrats prior to debates and make up false news and propaganda.

I would like to go on record and say that opinions are like assholes, and everyone has one. Anyway, I would like to point out that their is a huge difference between being bias and being corrupt. Just because you have a bias, does not automatically mean you are corrupt. CNN has the right to be as liberal as it wants, as does Fox news. They both are bias, (please don't make some lame and absolutely futile argument that they aren't) so in everyone that doesn't support my view should say that Fox news is bias as well (if they weren't Conservatives).

How do you know that everybody has one?-------------------------------------------

Fox News is biased, and.... outnumbered 50 to 1 by the liberal press. So most of your press, which is liberal, is liberally biased.
