The fake news joined together at The Atlantic’s DisInfo 2022 Conference this week in Chicago.
The conference included speeches by such purveyors of truth as:
- Barack Obama — behind the Russia collusion hoax, and you can keep your doctor lie
- Jeffrey Goldberg behind the unsourced Trump called military heroes “dumbasses” lie
- Anne Applebaum, a deep state propagandist behind the Trump-Russia collusion lie
On Thursday afternoon, CNN’s Brian Stelter sat on a panel with Trump-hating thumbsucker Stephen Hayes and others to discuss how media platforms shape consumer realities.
On every major story in the past five years, CNN and the mainstream news media have landed on the wrong side every time. And now they want to lecture the masses on fake news. Unreal.
That’s when first-year college student Christopher Phillips destroyed Stelter and CNN with a list of fake news stories the channel pushed on the American public for the past five years. The list included the Russia-Collusion hoax, the Jussie Smollett hoax, the Nick Sandmann smears, and the Hunter Biden laptop denial.
“You’ve all spoken extensively about Fox News being a purveyor of disinformation, but CNN is right up there with them,” Phillips said.
“They pushed the Russian collusion hoax. They pushed the Jussie Smollett hoax. They smeared Justice Cavanaugh as a rapist, and they also smeared Nick Sandmann as a white supremacist. And yes, they dismissed the Hunter Biden laptop affair as pure Russian disinformation,” Phillips narrated.
“With mainstream corporate journalists becoming little more than apologists and cheerleaders for the regime, is it time to finally declare that the canon of journalistic ethics is dead or no longer operative? All the mistakes of the mainstream media and CNN in particular, seem to magically all go in one direction. Are we expected to believe that this is all just some sort of random coincidence, or is there something else behind it?” he asked.
