CNN says they don’t lie, ignoring three lies in a day: Anderson Cooper, Chris Cillizza and digital ratings

CNN’s communications team attempted to attack President Trump and critics about their blatant lies, stating in a new press statement that “CNN does not lie.”

Sadly, there were/are three fibs within just 24 hours.

CNN’s Communications tweeted after multiple reports accused the network of lying about a major story on former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, and Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis.

So what happened next…

CNN’s Anderson Cooper lied about a tweet from Donald Trump Jr.

Trump Jr. tweeted out a photo of Cooper standing in a flooded area from Hurricane Ike, which happened 10 years ago.

“Donny Jr. was claiming it showed me in Florence faking the depths of flood waters in order to somehow harm his father,” Cooper said. “And I quote from his tweet ‘stop lying to try to make @realDonaldTrump look bad.'”

Cooper’s statement was a blatant lie as Trump Jr. never mentioned anything about any hurricane and the article that he shared mocked CNN’s drastic decline in ratings.

CNN’s Communications team falsely claimed that CNN Digital is #1 “in all key metrics”

In a tweet, CNN claimed that the network was “#1 Digital News Brand in All Key Metrics”

According to statistics from comScore, Fox News beat CNN in total page views and in total minutes spent on the site for the month of August:

  • FOX News Digital – 1,659,000,000 (up 44 percent vs. August 2017)

  • CNN.com – 1,337,000,000 (down 14 percent vs. August 2017)

  • CNN.com – 2,386,000,000 (down 9 percent vs. August 2017)

CNN’s Chris Cillizza lied about Trump remarks on Tuesday

Cillizza claimed that President Trump told the FBI to ignore the allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Trump actually said: “I don’t think the FBI should be involved because they don’t want to be involved, if they wanted to be I would certainly do that. As you say, this is not really their thing. The Senators will do a good job.”
