CNN Admits They Parrot the Powerful

Ok so they’re not investigators, they’re public relations outlets for whoever markets to them.    Nothing new here.   What’s new is that they’re not even embarrassed about it.   The people who should be embarrassed are their viewers.

‘We’re not investigators’: CNN chief ridiculed over defending coverage of Mueller probe

Netizens were up in arms this week grilling CNN boss Jeff Zucker who awkwardly defended his network’s coverage of the Mueller probe, saying their job was to report facts “as we know them,” rather than, you know, investigating.

“We are not investigators. We are journalists, and our role is to report the facts as we know them, which is exactly what we did,” Zucker said in light of the fact that the Robert Mueller investigation which CNN had harped on for the last two years found no evidence that Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with Russia….

It’s very strange how they are not only incapable of investigation, they are incapable of commonsensical skepticism and rational evaluation.   If I mailed a letter to the CEO warning that his right hand intends to strangle him, I wonder if he’d handcuff himself to his desk?
