Fake CNN flails as it tries to avoid a Janet Cooke fate.


Embedded deeply in CNN’s meta narrative concerning its own ideologically-propelled fake news gamble-that-lost, there is this dubious passage to be found.




In a staff meeting Monday afternoon, investigative unit members were told that the retraction did not mean the facts of the story were necessarily wrong. Rather, it meant that “the story wasn’t solid enough to publish as-is,” one of the people briefed on the investigation said.





Aside from being a conveniently subjective description of reporting practices, “solid” means nothing, and in the context that CNN defers to the adjective in order to placate its inner corporate demons, it’s merely a cynical distortion of accountability that glosses over the fact that the Commie News Network, so driven by left-wing motives inculcated by its Democratic tendrils, will desperately band-aid this journalistic farce before it cooks (as in Janet) their dwindling “reputation.”
