No longer recognizable as the news organization that it once was, CNN has become a full-blown propaganda machine where nothing is beyond the pale in the network’s scorched earth war on President Trump.
It has gotten so bad that in embracing the idea that “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” that CNN has now become an apologist for the Iranian regime that hates America and has previously expressed the sentiment that Israel should be wiped off the face of the map.
But when it comes to spinning even the most loathsome of matters so as to brainwash their audience into accepting the idea that Trump is illegitimate, a racist, a criminal and a Kremlin puppet, the self-proclaimed “most trusted name in news” may have just taken it a bit too far.
Like running a story that the Iranian hate mobs that routinely take to the streets to burn the flag and chant “Death to America” don’t really mean it.

Via The Daily Caller, “CNN Runs Defense For ‘Death To America’ Chants In Iran”:
CNN published an article on Wednesday asserting that when Iranians chant “death to America,” they don’t actually mean they want Americans to die.
According to CNN, the chant is not as awful as it seems because Iranians are lashing out at the United States’ policies and leaders rather than its everyday citizens. Nonetheless, the Iranians they spoke to expressed a deep disdain for the U.S. government and the country as a whole.
“But they [USA] don’t act justly. We don’t count in Mr Trump’s eyes. He has problems with the government, but what’s my sin? We don’t count,” one Iranian, identified only as Rahimi, said.
“The people of USA are very respectable. When we chant ‘death to America,’ it’s to the government of America not the people,” Sajud Ibrahimi added, trying to justify the violent chant. “We have no problem with the people of the USA.”
From CNN’s article “In Iran, ‘death to America’ doesn’t always mean what it seems”:
In this Iran, there is another take on the US. Here, the enemy is not the American people, but the policies of the leaders they voted for, where the smallest changes in the price of food or the value of the US dollar wreak havoc on Iranians’ daily lives.
“I got things to do… I don’t have time to chant ‘Death to America,'” says Mohammad Reza, 42, as he fills the frozen lockers of a market stall with large plastic bags full of sheep’s offal and heads dragged from the ice buckets of his truck.
This Iran is a long way from President Trump’s hardline Twitter-baiting, the dismissal of new talks from Iran’s Supreme Leader, and the hopes of Iranian and American moderates that diplomacy could have saved the nuclear deal that brought a delicate truce after years of tension.
“But they [USA] don’t act justly. We don’t count in Mr Trump’s eyes. He has problems with the government, but what’s my sin? We don’t count.”
Who are you going to believe? CNN or your own lying eyes and ears.
Just so you get it, CNN just took sides with a country that is notorious for being one of the biggest sponsors of radical Islamic terrorism on the planet.
