CNN’s obsessive bias and hatred of President Trump is off the charts. President Trump had accurately stated that the United States has done more Coronavirus testing than South Korea. However, CNN took issue with the statement. When conducting their fact check CNN included statistics to reflect per capita terms. Here is the problem. President Trump NEVER referenced per capita terms in his statement. CNN essentially altered President Trump’s statement to make him look dishonest. This is the very definition of fake news. CNN should indeed lose their FCC license. In addition, the shameless liar Jeff Zucker should be publicly condemned and fired. President Trump is 100 percent correct, the mainstream media is the enemy of the people.
The fake news will utilize any metric to turn a truth into a gotcha moment. I’m pretty sure @realDonaldTrump didn’t say per capita when he made the statement so they change the measurement criteria so they can keep their BS narrative going.

Ex-CIA Analyst Exposes CNN’s Anti-Trump ‘Fact Check’ as Literal Fake News
By Western Journal, March 29, 2020:
Fact-checking has always been a rigged game, particularly after social media platforms began using it to decide what content was verboten.
Most mainstream media outlets have been fine with this for reasons that might be obvious to the casual observer.
Some controversy was recently created when a fact-checker affiliated with conservative website The Daily Caller was allowed to do official fact-checking for Facebook. This requires the fact-checker to meet certain criteria, however — criteria which, blessedly for them, CNN doesn’t have to meet to post its own so-called fact-based takes on the news of the day.
“Just reported that the United States has done far more ‘testing’ than any other nation, by far! In fact, over an eight day span, the United States now does more testing than what South Korea (which has been a very successful tester) does over an eight week span,” Trump tweeted Wednesday.

On Tuesday, he’d said something similar during a town hall-style meeting broadcast on Fox News: “We now have 370,000 tests that have been done. The majority of those — over 220,000 in the last eight days, which, those of you who have been tracking the South Korea numbers, put us equivalent to what they did in eight weeks that we did in eight days,” he said.
CNN had an issue with this declaration:
Fact check: President Trump says the US had done more coronavirus testing than any other nation.
While the US has overtaken South Korea in total numbers of coronavirus tests administered, it has conducted far fewer tests per capita. https://t.co/UqqVCFaTSJ

Former CIA analyst (and current conservative radio host) Buck Sexton didn’t quite see how this added up.
“A ‘fact check’ in which CNN changes the fact being checked in order to take a cheap shot at a Trump,” Sexton tweeted Thursday.
“He said ‘more,’ not ‘more per capita.’ He’s right. Stop being the worst, CNN.”

He said “more,” not “more per capita.” He’s right.
Stop being the worst, CNN. https://t.co/JMuBWHBrVZ
