It’s so impossible for CNN to tell the truth, that we’re not even sure how they’re still in the news business at all. They have been caught red-handed so many times in the months leading up to President Trump’s election, and even more time sense, it’s like they’ve given up on even trying to report the truth.
The first involved a story written by CNN Money’s Daniel Shane about a speech the president gave to Japanese auto executives. The article was originally titled “Trump asks Japan to build cars in the U.S. It already does.”
“President Trump delivered a rebuke to Japan Inc. on Monday ‘Try building your cars in the United States instead of shipping them over. Is that possible to ask? That’s not rude. Is that rude? I don’t think so,’ Trump told executives from local automakers during a trip to Japan,” Shane originally wrote.
“Japanese automakers have tried: The country’s big three car companies already have huge factories in the U.S., and their production in the country is at a record high.”
However, Pfeiffer pointed the president’s original remarks had acknowledged the facts in Shane’s latter paragraph and the quote from Shane’s first paragraph was obviously a joke. Take a look at Trump’s remarks for yourself:
I also want to recognize the business leaders in the room whose confidence in the United States — they’ve been creating jobs — you have such confidence in the United States, and you’ve been creating jobs for our country for a long, long time. Several Japanese automobile industry firms have been really doing a job. And we love it when you build cars — if you’re a Japanese firm, we love it — try building your cars in the United States instead of shipping them over. Is that possible to ask? That’s not rude. Is that rude? I don’t think so. (Laughter.) If you could build them. But I must say, Toyota and Mazda — where are you? Are you here, anybody? Toyota? Mazda? I thought so. Oh, I thought that was you. That’s big stuff. Congratulations. Come on, let me shake your hand. (Applause.) They’re going to invest $1.6 billion in building a new manufacturing plant, which will create as many as 4,000 new jobs in the United States. Thank you very much. Appreciate it. (Applause.)
What do you think? Is CNN off their mark in their reporting on Trump? Maybe they should have their broadcast license PULLED all together by the FCC? Let us know in the comments!
