When it comes to facts, CNN seems to believe that only it should be able to tell you what they are and what they aren’t. That desire goes so far as to suggest that going out and doing your own research is “idiotic.”
CNN host, Don Lemon, for instance, said that “we have to start doing things for the greater good of society and not for idiots who think they can do their own research,” adding that these same people think “they are above the law and they can break the rules.”

Firstly, the fact that he’s attacking people who do their own research as the same who think they’re “above the law and break the rules” is rich given the fact that he’s a Black Lives Matter supporter, and effectively applauded the destruction of cities and communities in the name of “justice.”
Lemon’s suggestion exposes CNN’s mentality and the mindset of mainstream media. It doesn’t like you going out to find the answers for yourself, let them tell you what is and isn’t reality. It’s for your own good, or as Lemon said, “the greater good.”
If you break down what he’s suggesting, he’s saying that they should be able to craft whatever narrative CNN pleases and have it be the way any situation is defined. CNN needs to be able lie to you, and that lies is the truth.
It’s very Orwellian, but I wouldn’t expect anything less from CNN, which has effectively become a propaganda arm of the Democrat Party.
CNN has suggested twice that you shouldn’t do your research. In fact, they attempted to scare you into thinking it’s illegal and that only they could possess and give you the data.
Back in 2016, the now-fired Chris Cuomo suggested that possessing the Wikileaks documents that revolved around the Clinton campaign was “illegal.”
“Also interesting is, remember, it’s illegal to possess these stolen documents,” Cuomo said. “It’s different for the media, so everything you’re learning about this, you’re learning from us.”
This clip has been removed from the internet. YouTube uploaded a video which I believe spliced clips from Alien in an attempt to evade censors.
Cuomo wasn’t exactly being truthful here. While downloading leaked documents was difficult to do, viewing them is legal. CNN tried to hide the fact that they were attempting to block people from viewing the documents. Instead of trusting CNN to tell the story, it was trying to keep them away.
CNN desperately tried to control the narrative for Clinton’s campaign, but it was already collapsing.
They are trustworthy and impartial news sources.
Perhaps this is why CNN has lost 90 per cent of its viewers.
