Yeah, and like the time the BEEB showed building seven on TV collapsing 1 half hour before it actually did during 911, they can also tell the future too!!!

I wouldn't be rubbing that thing anymore though, it looks rotten and it just might fall off...

Watch the top 10 biggest CNN fails of 2017.

There's been too many to count, but I tried to narrow them town to the 10 biggest. Order my new book, The True Story of Fake News: How Mainstream Media Manipulates Millions, from Amazon

He left out the doubling of the national debt under obama
which had DOOMED the US economy instead of fixing it when he had the chance

Too snig to fail I guess.

Another limp member of the nazi deep state coup, same as you.

Bushes grandpa helped fund Hitler and tried to hire Smedly Butler the marine commandant, who was the most decorated marine commander ever, to run a coup on Washington THEN.

Prescott Bush's 1933 fascist coup attempt in the US - Business Coup stopped by Smedley Butler

The "Business Plot" (also the Plot Against FDR and the White House Putsch) was an alleged political conspiracy in 1933 wherein wealthy businessmen and corporations plotted a coup détat to overthrow United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

In 1934, the Business Plot was publicly revealed by retired Marine Corps Major General Smedley Butler testifying to the McCormack-Dickstein Congressional Committee. In his testimony, Butler claimed that a group of men had approached him as part of a plot to overthrow Roosevelt in a military coup. One of the alleged plotters, Gerald MacGuire, vehemently denied any such plot.

In their final report, the Congressional committee supported Butler's allegations of the existence of the plot, but no prosecutions or further investigations followed, and the matter was mostly forgotten."

Nothing new under the sun eh, Mental Floss?

you come from a LONG line of failure

CNN Turkey Fake News Goes Viral: 'American Sniper' Star Killed In Syria, Pentagon Forced To Deny

On Friday a Middle East regional CNN network reported that American Sniper Chris Kyle had been killed while embedded with US-backed Kurdish forces in Syria by invading Turkish troops, and the story went viral. Or maybe they meant to say actor Bradley Cooper?

Though priding itself for its brand recognition in setting the agenda for accurate mainstream news and top notch investigative journalism around the globe, CNN has once again embarrassed itself as its sister network, CNN Turk, fell for what should have been an easy to recognize prank. At the end of this week false reports that two US Special Forces members had been killed in Syria while embedded with American-backed Kurdish units fighting in the northwest Aleppo district of Afrin in Syria spread wildly through major Turkish media after CNN Turk reported it.


Bradley Cooper as SEAL Sniper Chris Kyle in "American Sniper" via NPR

The only problem is that the identified US soldier purported to be featured in a photo circulating on social media which is the basis of CNN Turk's story was actually none other than "American Sniper" actor Bradley Cooper. That's right, as one classic and sadly all too literally serious headline from Newsweek reads - CNN Turkey Reports 'American Sniper' Bradley Cooper Killed In Syria, U.S. Military Denies.

Trump & The Pope. !!

***********************************
Seeking a weekend break from his campaign rallies; Donald Trump jetted to his yacht, which was docked off the coast of Italy.
He invited Pope Francis and the press corps on board for a Saturday afternoon cruise. It was a rather windy day. The Pope's little hat, his zucchetto, was blown from his head and into the water.
A crewman began lowering a boat to retrieve the zucchetto. Trump told the crewman not to bother. Trump climbed down the yacht's ladder; walked across the waves, picked up the zucchetto; walked back to the yacht and handed it to the Pope.
The Pope and the press corps were amazed! Donald Trump could actually walk on water!

Speculation immediately began as to how ABC, CNN, NBC, The Washington Post and New York Times would report this miraculous event to the rest of the world.

The next morning the New York Times headline read . . . .

DONALD TRUMP CAN'T SWIM!!!

You don't think releasing a memo with incomplete information, crafted by the Republicans, and denying a subsequent memo to fill in the blanks, by the Democrats, isn't suspect?
