No matter what it is with CNN, they have Russia on their mind and the fake news continue to pour out. The latest example is in Qatar where the UAE hacked their goverment sites. But it’s not like CNN has any credibility left anyway.
|More CNN fake news: Claims Russia hacked Qatar (it was UAE)|
Just over a month ago, we expressed amazement at just how sophisticated, efficient and pervasive the ‘Russian hacking’ community had become after CNN reported – citing unnamed government officials of course – that they had managed to hack into a Qatari News Agency and post a ‘fake’ news story all in an attempt to drive a wedge between the U.S., Qatar and some of it’s Gulf Arab neighbors, one which culminated – at least according to the CNN narrative – with the Qatari crisis in which an alliance of Arab states led by Saudi Arabia isolated and blockaded the nat gas rich nation.
The CNN headline made it quite clear: ignore the Arab conflict and please focus on the only thing that matters these days: Russia. Just in case it is somehow lost, we will have it here for posterity.
As it turns out, it’s somewhat ironic that CNN accused Russia of spreading “fake news stories” that “have turned up amid elections in France, Germany and other countries” because, as CNN’s ideological twins over at the WaPo blasted moments ago, it wasn’t Russia at all (now that the hacking narrative has found a renewed vigor in the US, courtesy of the leaked Trump Jr. emails) but – wait for it – the UAE, i.e. not Russia. Compare the CNN headline above from June 6 with what the WaPo has just published:
I think I’m finally beginning to understand the media’s session with Russia. They really miss the communist Soviet Union, so they are mad at them for just becoming Russia.
