Wow, CNN Admits Democrats Lied About Trump’s Ukraine Call?

In order to impeach the president, Democrats have to lie about the facts. It has now come to the point where even CNN is calling the Democrats out on their lies. 

Two Democratic representatives from Texas, Veronica Escobar and Sheila Jackson Lee, both lied during debate on articles of impeachment on Thursday about what President Trump said during his phone call to the president of Ukraine.

Rep. Escobar said President Trump told President Zelensky, “I want you to do me a favor though.” 

Rep. Jackson Lee quoted Trump saying, “I would like you to do a favor though.”

What Trump actually said was “I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot.” The full quote makes it clear that Trump was asking the president of Ukraine to do “our country” a favor.

Dems Veronica Escobar and Jackson Lee purposely misquoted my call. I said I want you to do us (our Country!) a favor, not me a favor. They know that but decided to LIE in order to make a fraudulent point! Very sad.87.1K7:40 AM – Dec 12, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacy40.5K people are talking about this

Even CNN had to admit the president was right (Via CNN):

President Trump alleged that Democratic Reps. Veronica Escobar and Sheila Jackson Lee “purposely misquoted” his call with the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in a Tweet this morning.

Facts First: Trump is correct that the call was misquoted during today’s debate over the articles of impeachment in the House Judiciary committee.

In the declassified memo of the July 25 phone call between Trump and President Zelensky, the President says, “I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot.”

Of course, the headline CNN used, “Fact check: Trump says Democrats misquoted his call. He’s correct,” has a lot less vitriol than other CNN headlines like, “Lies, lies, lies: How Trump’s fiction gets more dramatic over time.” But at least they got the facts right this time. 

CNN Carried Only 33% of Horowitz Hearing, But Had 99% of Impeachment Hearing!

On Wednesday night, NewsBusters examined the live coverage from the top three cable news networks (CNN, Fox News Channel, and MSNBC) devoted to the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing featuring Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz on his report on the Russia probe and, most notably, far-left, pro-impeachment CNN only covered live 33.4 percent of the hearing.

But when it came time for Wednesday’s impeachment hearing, CNN reminded us why they need a lesson on idiolatry and find things to care about besides hating Trump. All told, they carried 99.9 percent of the primetime House Judiciary Committee hearing on Articles of Impeachment, which amounted to all but nine seconds.

In contrast on the Horowitz hearing, MSNBC stepped up to the plate and carried 89 percent of it live while FNC was just behind at 88.7 percent. For CNN, perhaps it stemmed from the fact that it didn’t feature their favorite Democrats like Congressman Adam Schiff (CA).

Using C-SPAN’s gavel-to-gavel coverage, the hearing lasted roughly 320 minutes and 37 seconds, but the Jeffrey Zucker-led CNN dipped in for only 106 minutes and 56 seconds.

Instead, CNN ignored Republican Chairman Lindsey Graham’s opening statement and didn’t join the hearing until 10:57 a.m. Eastern in the midst of Horowitz’s opening statement. CNN took a six-minute commercial break at 11:50 a.m. Eastern and rejoined the hearing until its pause for lunch.

Inside Politics and CNN Right Now filled their airtime with their predictably pro-FBI and anti-Trump spin until rediscovering the hearing at 1:48 p.m. Eastern. 

At 2:11 p.m. Eastern, CNN Newsroom’s Brooke Baldwin bailed in order to counteract any and all Republican arguments with liberal CNN legal analyst Elie Honig and former Jim Comey flack/CNN analyst Josh Campbell.

CNN then refused to return live to the hearing until Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) took her turn. Once Harris’s time expired, Baldwin left the hearing for a final time and CNN never returned (despite there being 38 minutes left).

As alluded to above, FNC and MSNBC took this hearing seriously. In the case of MSNBC, it must have been painful for them to do something so noble.

MSNBC started seconds after Graham began speaking and stayed until part way through his opening statement. The Beat’s Ari Melber interjected to react with a panel of fellow lefties for about 20 minutes before turning it back over to the hearing.

From that point on, MSNBC carried the rest of the hearing until 4:00 p.m. Eastern when TDS sufferer Nicolle Wallace couldn’t take it anymore and began her show Deadline: White House.

FNC carried all but a few seconds of the morning session and the afternoon session until 2:18 p.m. Eastern when The Daily Briefing host Dana Perino took viewers to a press conference with law enforcement officials in Jersey City, New Jersey concerning Tuesday’s deadly shooting at kosher grocery store. 

Perino brought in a panel for reaction to the latest developments there and returned to the hearing at 2:44 p.m. Eastern. 

Following that break, FNC stuck with Horowitz’s testimony and questioning from Senators of both parties until its conclusion just after 4:15 p.m. Eastern. https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/curtis-houck/2019/12/11/cnn-carried-only-33-horowitz-hearing-had-99-impeachment-hearing

AFP Reports Astounding Number Of Child Migrant Detentions Under Trump. Then Discovers It Was From 2015 Under Obama.

Nov 25, 2013

Jun 30, 2014

The AFP News Agency withdrew a story intending to criticize the Trump administration over the high number of migration-related child detentions after they discovered the number actually came from detentions during the Obama administration.

“AFP is withdrawing this story. The author of the report has clarified that his figures do not represent the number of children currently in migration-related US detention, but the total number of children in migration-related US detention in 2015.

“We will delete the story,” they added.

Their previous tweet blared out the headline, “More than 100,000 children in migration-related US detention,” and cited the United Nations.

But that number turns out to have nothing to do with the current administration under President Donald Trump. The AFP News Agency was excoriated on social media for deleting the entire story, instead of updating it.

OBAMA-IMMIGRATION- SERIOUS ABOUT BORDER SECURITY

Jul 21, 2016

The Trump 2020 campaign mocked the AFP’s action with a tweet from their official account.

“Once we found out that more than 100,000 children were in migration-related U.S. detention while Joe Biden was Vice President, we no longer wanted to report this story. Nothing to see here!”
