If the Dems ever lose control of the mainstream media, they’ll cease to exist as a party. The only way they retain any ounce of credibility is because the press keeps distorting the truth and outright lying for the Democrats. Case in point, Chris Cuomo of CNN.
He had Republican Mike Lee on his show and thought he could embarrass him by twisting his words from a previous interview and accuse him of being the “poster boy” for people piling on to bash Susan Rice. Lee was having none of that.
Here’s the exchange via DailyCaller.com:
“Why conflate the two issues of the potential of surveillance with a specific instance of incidental surveillance?”
“I’ve done no such thing, for the third time” Lee testily responded. “I’ll reiterate something I’ve said to reporters every single time I’ve been asked about this, and that’s I don’t know what Susan Rice did.”
“Right, but you did say it is not unreasonable to suggest it could have happened,” Cuomo continued. “Now that doesn’t fly in a court of law, but it does fly in a court of public opinion and it does seem as though you’re saying Rice has to prove it wasn’t politically motivated for me to believe that it wasn’t, and that’s not fair.”
“That is an absolutely absurd manipulation of what I said,” he shot back at Cuomo. “That is not at all what I said. I did in fact say that something like this could have happened. I did in fact say it’s not absurd to suggest something like this could have happened.”
“Every time I’ve said anything like that, it’s been accompanied by ‘I don’t know what Susan Rice did. I don’t know the facts of the case.’”
Seriously??? Chris Cuomo, the guy who outright told his viewers to disregard the Susan Rice story because it is fake news is lecturing Lee on making irresponsible statements? And worse, they were statements that Lee never made!
This is just like all of the hate crimes… they never happen, so liberals have to keep faking them in order to “make their point.”
This is a great insight into the way the media operates. Good for Lee for calling them out on their deceptive, underhanded tactics.
