More Media Spin from CNN

This past weekend, CNN reported that Trump would remain on as “executive producer” of the Celebrity Apprentice.  This could not be further from the truth.

Again, CNN, the Clinton News Network or Communist News Network as it was so famously called after it’s one-sided coverage of the presidential campaign, is misleading its viewers in what is fact and fiction. The same type of media spin that we have been seeing during the entire campaign.

These reports began to surface on December 8th on CNN Money, Variety , Vanity Fair, The Huffington Post and others.

On Friday, December 9, CNN Politics published a story entitled “Conway on Trump ‘Apprentice’ role: He’ll do it in his spare time“. The report is extremely misleading and a perfect example of media spin and the type of fake news we come to expect from CNN.

If you listen carefully to the interview, nothing about whether Trump will stay on as an executive producer was even said or even implied.  Anyone with a brain can see what CNN is up against and how they try and suck some kind of story out of bad reporting from Variety and Vanity Fair.

During a taped interview by CNN when asked by Alisyn Camerota (who is a snobby, CNN troll by the way) , “Why is Donald Trump going to stay on as executive producer of the Celebrity Apprentice?”

Kellyanne Conway responded by saying that the president will be “transparent” and “conferring with experts on what is appropriate and what is not” is a much different answer than inferring he will stay on as executive producer of the Celebrity Apprentice while acting as President of the United States.

If you watch the video, Conway says that presidents have the right to do things in their spare time, such as play golf. Also inferring that president Obama is rarely criticized of his frequent outings.

“Were we so concerned about the hours and hours and hours spent on the golf course of the current president? I mean presidents have a right to do things in their spare time, in their leisure time,” Conway argued.

“I heard you object to Mr. Obama playing golf. Will Mr. Trump not be playing golf for the next four years?” host Alisyn Camerota countered.

“Well, maybe he will be,” Conway answered. “It certainly seems like there is a lot of time to do based on recent precedent while you’re president the united states. But the point is the same. Whether it’s President Obama or president Donald Trump, the idea that these men are going to be all work and nothing else all the time is just unrealistic because it’s never happened in our lifetimes.” (CNN)

Conway also goes on to say that leisure time for Donald Trump is with his family.  When he does work, he is 100% committed and won’t have time for much of anything else.  Again, CNN is completely off-mark.

CNN then writes:

Trump’s agreement with the show, first reported by Variety and confirmed by sources at NBC and the Trump campaign, means the president will have an interest in a show aired by a media company that also reports on his presidency — a major conflict of interest for the network.

Trump immediately tweeted:



Again, CNN reporters continue to take words completely out of context in order to create a story where there is none. Of course, it’s fake news like this that tarnishes the entire news and media industry.

Trump is not a newcomer to this type of media bias.  He has seen the same type of context-confusion and fake stories coming from the Washington Post and New York Times. You would think after the election, CNN would tone it down. Not happening . . . it’s no wonder Trump constantly has to take to twitter to set the record straight.

  1. Ms. Conway, it may be noted, also did not deny that Trump would still have an active role in the show. Just that he would be “transparent” and “conferring with experts on what is appropriate and what is not”. Rather a non-committal answer.

      1. Objectivity is fine in certain circumstances, but here I believe there is no grey area. Sometimes there is right and there is wrong, but no grey area in between, thus no room for objectivity. Also, I notice he has now postponed the previously scheduled Dec. 15th press conference whereby he was supposed to unveil his plan to divest himself of his business interests and thereby eliminate potential conflicts of interest. He pushed it back to January. Wonder what’s up with that?
