CNN Panel Goes Bad When the Wrong Panelists Show Up
CNN did the impossible to take President Donald Trump out of the Oval Office. They’ve been releasing fake stories with the only aim to undermine the President and never tried to hide the fact that it is no friend of him.
However, even the left-leaning news network couldn’t spin the truth and skew the facts against the president when a panel of “everyday” Americans showed up.
Thursday during the 9 p.m. ET hour of CNN’s “AC 360,” network national correspondent Gary Tuchman hosted a group of panel voters from Ohio and and got their reaction to the day’s earlier proceedings of former FBI Director James Comey testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee. He asked them to respond to several questions.
But, the result was definitely not what the cable network had planned.
“First thing I want to ask you: It is a crime when you testify before Congress to lie,” Tuchman stated in a clear attempt to get ready for the panel. “That is perjury. You can go to prison for it.”
Then, Tuchman asked what the citizens thought. “Raise your hand if you believe James Comey lied at all.” To his obvious surprise, four of the nine panelists raised their hands in the air.
“He [Comey] said that Donald Trump, quote, ‘Lies plain and simple,’” continued Tuchman. “Raise your hand if you believe Donald Trump has lied at all about the situation,” he kept asking.
His shock was even bigger when not a single voter on the panel raised their hand. But that wasn’t even the worse thing that happened to CNN.
Tuchman wanted to know the reasons these voters had to keep their hand down. “Well, first of all, things can be distorted and appear like lies. And I think maybe the media might have distorted some things and now we’re not getting both sides,” the plainspoken woman responded.
CNN probably planned to destroy President Trump, but the media shell game no longer works.
