CNN’s Jake Tapper: Why Trump’s ‘fake news’ claim is wrong


ASSESS. YOUR IMMEDIATE THOUGHT ON WHAT WE JUST HEARD?>>WELL, THERE ARE TWO CATEGORIES OF NEWS. LET ME TAKE ON THE FIRST ONE THAT HAS TO DO WITH US. CNN. AT THE BEGINNING OF THE PRESS CONFERENCE SEAN SPICER, WHO IS GOING TO BE THE WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY, SUGGESTED THAT BOTH BUZZ FEED AND CNN PUBLISH THIS DOSSIER FULL OF UNCORROBORATED RUMORS. THAT’S NOT TRUE. THAT’S FALSE. CNN NEVER DID THAT. WE NEVER PROVIDED EVEN ONE DETAIL FROM THAT DOSSIER EXCEPT THIS MORNING WHEN I SAID THAT THERE WAS REASON TO BELIEVE THAT ONE DETAIL THAT HAD BEEN OUT THERE BECAUSE OF BUZZ FEED WAS FALSE INVOLVING TRUMP’S ATTORNEY MICHAEL COHEN. THAT CONFLATION WHETHER IT’S BECAUSE SEAN SPICER MISUNDERSTOOD OR SOME OTHER REASON, THAT’S NOT TRUE. CNN DID NOT DO THAT. WHAT WE DID WAS SAY IN OUR REPORTING YESTERDAY THAT BROKE THE STORY THAT THE INTELLIGENCE CHIEFS OF THE UNITED STATES WHEN THEY BRIEFED PRESIDENT OBAMA THURSDAY AND PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP ON FRIDAY PROVIDED IN THEIR BRIEFING TO THESE TWO LEADERS ABOUT RUSSIAN HACKING INTO THE U.S. 2016 ELECTION TWO PAGES OF A SINOPSIS, AND IT WAS BASED IN PART ON INFORMATION UNCORROBORATED AND THE INTELLIGENCE CHIEFS HAD NOT YET RUN TO GROUND, BUT THEY BELIEVED THAT THE SOURCE OF THE DOSSIER WAS CREDIBLE AND HIS SOURCES WERE CREDIBLE AND THEY BELIEVED THAT, A, THE PRESIDENT-ELECT AND THE PRESIDENT SHOULD KNOW THAT THE RUSSIANS WERE CLAIMING THEY HAD COMPROMISING INFORMATION ON HIM AND, TWO, THAT THE RUSSIANS WERE CLAIMING THAT THERE WERE CONTACTS BETWEEN THE TRUMP CAMP OR TRUMP ORBIT AND THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT OR THE RUSSIAN ORBIT DURING THE CAMPAIGN. THAT INFORMATION WAS PROVIDED. NO ONE HAS DISPUTE THAD THAT TWO-PAGE DOSSIER WAS IN THE PRESENTATION. I’M SORRY. THAT THE TWO-PAGE SYNOPSIS WAS IN THE INFORMATION BY THE INTELLIGENCE CHIEFS TO PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP, TO PRESIDENT OBAMA. WE HAVE BEEN ASKING NOW FOR MORE THAN HALF A DAY FOR SEVERAL, SEVERAL HOURS BEFORE WE WENT WITH THE STORY FOR A COMMENT FROM THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN. THAT’S ONE. WHEN MR. TRUMP WENT AFTER OUR OWN JIM ACCOSTA SAYING HE IS FAKE NEWS AND HE ISN’T GOING TO CALL FOR HIM, WHAT I SUSPECT WE ARE SEEING HERE IS AN ATTEMPT TO DISCREDIT LEGITIMATE, RESPONSIBLE ATTEMPTS TO REPORT ON THIS INCOMING ADMINISTRATION WITH IRRESPONSIBLE JOURNALISM THAT HURTS US ALL AND THE MEDIA GOING FORWARD SHOULD KEEP THAT IN MIND. THAT’S ONE. JUST TO GET THAT OUT OF THE WAY.>>YOU’RE RERNG EVERY REFERRING SPECIFICALLY TO BUZZ FEED.>>IT’S IRRESPONSIBLE TO PUT UNCORROBORATED INFORMATION ON THE INTERNET. I CAN UNDERSTAND WHY PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP WOULD BE UPSET ABOUT IT. THAT’S WHY WE DID NOT DETAIL ANY SPECIFICS FROM IT

  1. you guys have already admitted you are fake when one of your supervisors said "its just for ratings"…. it's a business tactic…

  2. CNN used to be reliable and truthful but as is now normal for most main stream media they ARE fake news. Why? It is these days become the norm to support evil and lies, all part of the NWO . Fake news sells, loved by haters and all with evil intent. Any one who does good, shows kindness , tells the truth is ignored, called recist, nazis and so on. CNN, Democrats with so many others are doing their best to destroy the US and the world. Do they really think they will be exempt when the NWO becomes the norm?

  3. Well hello fake news channel and what lying fake news have you to report to us today you fuckin lying low life cunts. Nobody unless they are a complete idiot believes any of your shit anymore you’ve shot yourself in the foot you fuckers

  4. CNN is fake news cause they make stupid liberal points that have no evidence so they find some random normal video and make it racist or sexist

  5. "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor" Why do you insist on lying CNN? You attacked school children and made up a fake story to push your mission driving storytelling. And you defended hateful racists the black Hebrew Israelite!

  6. How about all those Fake Mass Shootings??? Thousand Oaks.
    Las Vegas is tricky but definitely a cover up.
    Sandy Hook.
    Someone who believes the Sandy Hook.
    Show me a picture of Adam Lanza with his brother mother or dad? I will wait and die. Bc its all lies.
    1986 Challenger disaster was fake. And that was before I was born.
    1972 Munich Olympics Fake as fuck.
    Mossad, CIA and Mitre are All terrorist organizations.

  7. CNN is purely fake news…like when they selectively edited Sherelle Smith saying she was calling for peace….when it turned out she was actually calling for more violence, she just wanted people to take it to white neighborhoods. Or when CNN interviewed THEIR OWN CAMERAMAN John Jurkovic, trying to pass him off as just a random person on the street. CNN is the worst of the worst….not only are they fake news, they push a failing agenda. America has woken up to your antics CNN. That's why CNN is ranked 9th out of 10 news outlets. They are a disgrace. Donald Trump wins, CNN loses.

  8. Nice job CNN, You are doing an amazing job at making fake news, you are embarrassing yourselves in front of all America.

  9. Whats done in the dark eventually comes to light. They use to hide the fact of how dirty their deeds was, But now that they grand plan is coming unravel they are showing their true colors Look at Cascio she is celebrating a huge blow to the city of Brooklyn New York Amazon would of bought 1000s of Job to that city You know how many people that could use a job in Brooklyn it would helped their community so much but she dont care about the people needs she only worried about her hiding partys agenda.

  10. CNN keep reporting fake news like always. I never seen this kind of fake news when Obama was president. Just to show you how far CNN will go to protect democratics. But when it comes to Republicans and my President they will do everything in their power to screw them and him over. That's right I said it. President Trump is my president. I'm a legal immigrant in this country and I'm an American citizen by choice. So I choose to stand by my president. Keep up the great work Presented Trump.

  11. 1 buzzfeed is fake in anyway shape and form they made vid on man spreading with dumbass feminists and 2 you are fake news I can see it and people with common sense can too

  12. Fake News. It is amazing how shitty this Network manages to cover everything. Its like when I watch their coverage then watch third party or fox coverage I can see how much shit they cover up or leave out.

  13. CNN is fake news.

    Note according to the MEDIA BIAS FACT CHECK website, CNN has failed multiple fact checks due to misinformation. I therefore do not recognize CNN as a reliable source of information.

    Spread the word that CNN is fake news.

  14. 28,000 plus dislikes shows the truth about what Americans think about Cnn. CNN's very very fake news times Infinity!!!

  15. cnn blames trump for everything, so no one belives cnn anymore, so even if trump did something wrong now, WHO would believe cnn? LOL
    you have cried wolf too many times

  16. When I need my infrequent dose of fake news while stuck in an airport… I choose no other than CNN… because the damn airports give me no other choice… MSNBC would be a better choice, because even they know how full of shit they are… they clearly laugh their asses off after their broadcasts.

  17. CNN… HAHAHAHAHAHAHA……AND HAHAHAHA. GO FUCK YOURSELVES AND YOUR BULLSHIT FAKE NEWS…….HAHAHAHA……NOBODY FUCKING CARES ABOUT YOUR SHIT THAT YOU SPOUT…….HAHAHA

  18. Ps 2.8 k likes……ten times that dislike……hahahahaha….a dog taking a shit would be better to watch than watching you guys talking shit….

  19. The term "Fake News "  was started by CNN to describe President Trump. Trump turned it around and pinned it on CNN where it stays today.

  20. CNN is a fake news period. Russia didn't meddle the election but you did as always by spreading fake news and fake polls.

  21. This video on it's own is already fake news, because they are lying about the fact that they spread false information.

  22. Look at all the downvotes. America is laughing at you dopes. Want people to stop calling you fake news just stop lying.

  23. Fake is fake does, oh so hard to get the stink off! Well you going to need a big old believable false flag to clean up the all fake news or more ernest lying. Have you ever known a habitual liar to stop on his own? Nope they just move on trying to find someone who take them on their word and vet them when needed. Man good fake friends are harder and harder to find unless you all work together. It use to be that a little fake would go along way just a big enough lie to be believable. Now days if it is not sounding suspiciously fake you would not think it was idiot box propaganda at all just some millennial's voicing talking points. Canadian News Not. From the problems they report, If they tell you the answer and there is only one answer and the answer happens as a solution to the problem like CNN being real? Then you know it CNN is fake. Fake like stupid has short legs and can't stand beside truth without being known as that stinky fake stuff!

  24. Beep beep boop. YES FELLOW NPC. I AM NPC NUMBER 1175589 AND I GREATLY AGREE BEEP BOOP. CNN IS THE TRUTH AND THEY NEVER LIE BEEP BOP. ANYONE WHO DISAGREES WITH ME IS A FASCIST NAZI. TRUMP IS A RACIST. I AM HOLDING A SIGN. REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
