Oh, the hypocrisy. After all their hand-wringing over “fake news,” the Obama Administration colluded with the mainstream media to run a phony report.
CNN was caught red-handed running a fake news report targeting the Russian government.
CNN reported that in retaliation for Obama’s expulsion of Russian diplomats:
“Russian authorities ordered the closure of the Anglo-American School of Moscow, a US official briefed on the matter said. The order from the Russian government closes the school, which serves children of US, British and Canadian embassy personnel, to US and foreign nationals.”
The only problem was that the story was completely fabricated. Either CNN failed to fact check before publishing the story, or they were colluding with the Obama Administration to publish fake news.
Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova responded swiftly on Facebook:
“US officials ‘anonymously informed’ their media that Russia closed the Anglo-American School in Moscow as a retaliatory measure. That’s a lie. Apparently, the White House has completely lost its senses and began inventing sanctions against its own children.”
The incident is yet another embarrassment for CNN. For Obama, it further solidifies him as the most hypocritical, vindictive and childish president to ever occupy the White House.
