QUOTE" Bolduan said reporters have anonymous sources all the time and protect them so the American people can have access to important information." UNQUOTE And so we can tell as many lies as we wish without admitting it because we can attribute it to an anonymous source.
where and the hell was cnn when hilary put a private server in her basement and transfed classified docs illegally.where was cnn when the irs targeted us citizens. where was cnn with fast and furious and when attorney general lied to congress. i could go on and on i waited for them for eight years to bring all the illegal activity in our goverment when obama was prez and heard "NOTHING"
The latest story is about a memo no reporter has seen. Would an ethical reporter ask the source "Why can't I see the memo?" Wouldn't a good reporter wonder if the select parts are being read verbatim? If the context of the full memo might totally change the meaning? Nope. No pause, no doubt, no suspicion. It's negative, it's about Trump, don't ask questions, run it.
Unnamed FORMER officials who were NOT in the Oval Office-- vs NSA Advisor McMasters who WAS in the room, Sec of State Tillerson, who WAS IN THE ROOM-- who have gone ON RECORD saying this never happened. WHO is more credible? VERIFYING sources is a requirement in good journalism. THIS is rumor mill in the cafeteria and beneath contempt. SHAME ON YOU. I hope to god the FCC revokes your licensing, this is NOT what is meant by the "free" press. Free means FACTS, verification, RESPONSIBILITY-- and that is NOT happening here. If you need to be emotional and work through your personal issues, go to therapy and keep it OFF the AIR! SHAME ON YOU!
Just another brain-washed Communist News Network performing like a drone in a bee-hive. Chant the mantra after me - Anon News Source Stellar CNN Reporters
In the United States when I grew up, you had to put up or shut up when you made lying statements...
You can't do that now, bunch of weakling honor less, gut less Libtards (Communists)
I have an anon source that said that CNN colluded with the Hillary Clinton during the election by sharing debate questions, allowing candidate tailoring of stories, and generally acting like a wing of her election campaign. Oh wait, that's not anon, but the actual email of a person inside Hillary's campaign. Well.... I have an anon source that says Bill still gets chicks on the side (and so does Hillary). Prove me wrong. I'm going to start my own new organization and we'll publish anonymously sourced material all day long...since that apparently passes as new these days.
IT is common place to share information with a foreign government. Every presidency has done the same when it deals with the national security of said countries. They need to build a hospital and put all you loony birds in it. NY TIMES WASHINTON POST CNN MSNBC ABC PELOSI WATTERS WARREN SCHUMER thats where you need to be. And lady CNN is the worst of the worst and dare you attack and veteran a hero like that. You are pathetic and need to be taken down a few pegs.
" Bolduan said reporters have anonymous sources all the time and protect them so the American people can have access to important information."
Also so they can LIE and MAKE THINGS UP and nobody can question them or oppose their version of the story. Also that.
hahahaha... love you Higbie... call em' like you see em'! CNN is a bunch of f'n liars and will do ANYTHING for ratings! He let that bitch have it and she couldn't take it. Tough titties lady... you work for CNN and that's the crap you are gonna have to deal with. You all at CNN have lied to America too many times and no one believes you anymore and then you go off the deep end like a f'n cry baby because you really can't back up what you say. "Stellar reporter" hahahahahahaha..... that's a good one! hahahaha!
The MSM hasnet veified sources for years. They have all gone the route of The National Enquirer. LOL really she is going to intimidate a seal by raising her voice? Typical lib who has never served. We got yelled at daily by people we actually respected. She is just a squeaky toy
Carl, if you're reading this I'd like to say several things to you: 1.) Thank you for your service to this country, for every moment you put your life on the line to protect us! Patriotic Americans everywhere appreciate you and all of our military personnel who give sacrificially every day to defend this nation! 2.) I'm embarrassed and I apologize profusely to you that you endured this from other "Americans" on the Clinton News Network. They are the ones who should all be ashamed for such DEPLORABLE behavior! 3.) You were 100% right. This entire "Russian narrative" is pure BS and 98% of the country knows it. Thank you for courageously standing up for President Trump and the truth to our TRUE ENEMY, THE RADICAL LEFT. 4.) The MSM has lost ALL CREDIBILITY and you rightly told them that if they want to gain it back they need to present their sources. None of us is buying their "anonymous sources" line anymore. We know it's a LIE. 5.) The true story on RUSSIA is the mounting evidence against the Obama administration (Obama, H&B Clinton, Lynch, Rice, Comey, etc.) who are the most LAWLESS politicians this country has ever seen and who should be prosecuted for TREASON! They are the ones who make Watergate look like a walk in the park! They are the RUSSIAN SELL OUTS & LEAKERS! 6.) There is no point in arguing the truth with people like this since FACTS don't matter to them. They are fueled and driven by pride, anger, and vengeance. Don't waste your valuable time. 7.) Run for office! We need GREAT PEOPLE like you - who have integrity and who know what TRUE LEADERSHIP & SACRIFICE mean, someone who knows and loves what this country stands for - in the halls of Congress! YOU WOULD MAKE US PROUD! GOD BLESS!!
Now one more thing , I wrote the NeWS for L A ch ... I could have said the Cow Jumped over The Moon ! No one checked! Now if a celebrity had a problem we might be told to delete certain pics or goings on!!! It's all bull crap. It is to get ratings.... period!
It just seems that all of the anti Trump "news" that's being reported is from these mysterious sources. Hell, a source could be a drunk stumbling down the sidewalk for all we know. There is a full blown attack on this administration happening and it doesn't seem to end. It has to be funded by some extremely deep pockets.
Unbelievable how CNN sticks by their sources. These sources have nothing to hide if they are telling the truth. CNN is a network of lies. They know that there are many out there the buy into their lies, so they think "why not keep lying to the public" CNN loves the ill informed, but it will all come out one day that CNN is a lying News Show.
How do the people know if an anonymous source is not a made up source or simply someone with an unverifiable opinion that they are stating as a fact? I just want to know how far the media who releases this information go to verify that the information is factual? Who else do they check with? Or is this "anonymous source" simply a means to side step any verification at all? There is no way to fact check this, is there? It occurs to me that this could be like a smoke bomb which has no fire, but because there smoke there must be fire. That would be their reasoning. There are things other than smoke which can set off an alarm and again fire is not involved. This is my analogy of using anonymous sources without any means of verifying the truth of the allegations.
It's disgusting to see how they treat someone who comes on their show. These "news" people are downright mental cases. They need to be locked up where the sun does not shine.
John- that's the problem, these are not facts the media nuts are presenting. If you tried to try a case on this it would be thrown out. The media should be more responsible, but sadly they are just a joke anymore. They pull in gullible people like you into their nets.
Hey, CNN and anchor Kate Bolduan . . .
According to an “ANONYMOUS SOURCE:”
Prior to leaving office on January 20, 2017, President Obama called FBI Director James Comey into the Oval Office. President Obama asked Director Comey to make Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office an absolute living hell and to do anything that besmirches President Trump's character.
Of course, the above GARBAGE is FAKE NEWS generated by a FAKE ANONYMOUS SOURCE.
I voted for Donald Trump, and I support President Trump. I will give him an opportunity to lead our country, because giving the president an opportunity to succeed -- equates to giving our country an opportunity to succeed.
Bottom line, I support America FIRST. Therefore, if I had any SOLID EVIDENCE or PROOF Mr. Trump is subverting our Constitution or committing – treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors – I would NOT remain in the shadows, and I definitely would NOT remain anonymous!
As an American, I would immediately present my proof to Congress, and let the chips fall where they may. I would do this because my loyalty is to AMERICA. My loyalty is not bound to a person or political party – Republican, Democrat or Independent.
Ms. Bolduan, would YOU accept information from any ANONYMOUS SOURCE making claim your husband was “under suspicion” at The Carlyle Group for misappropriating investment funds? Would you demand that so-called anonymous source to come forward and present their proof publically, or would you accept harmful conjecture from that anonymous source?
You see, Ms. Bolduan, lies and conjecture is a dark street filled with turns of speculation and uncertainty. However, PROOF delivered openly and beyond the shadow of a doubt is the most reliable and accurate road to travel.
Grow up, Ms. Bolduan. Your loyalty should be with America – not with CNN, which is a politically biased and agenda-based news organization. By the way -- CNN is playing you like a Stradivarius.
I personally, don't necessarily, disbelieve what these anonymous sources are saying. It's more like, I actually don't believe that they exist.
A “stellar reporter”, with an agenda, makes up a story that he wants people to believe. He throws in a few quotes from some anonymous sources. Now everyone has to believe it. It has been sourced. He may even call it a trusted source. After all who doesn’t trust them self? He could be even more creative and talk to “sources close to the white house”. You know, that guy with the picket sign on Pennsylvania Ave.
One of the women in the video said, "What Trump supporters are doing is they're trying to make regular people who don't understand how this works think that just some random person called up a journalist and told him something."
If that's what Trump supporters are doing, they're failing. Because I don't believe that. I believe the "journalists" made it up, just like they made up all their other lies, from "Michael Brown was just a nice guy minding his own business" to polls that showed Hilary would win in a landslide to "Islam is a religion of peace" to "the ACA gave 20 million people health care" to "sanctuary cities keep innocent people from being deported and keep families together" to "Christians are haters" to made-up terms like "Islamophobe" and "homophobe" for sensible people who don't want terrorism or perversions here in America, and "undocumented immigrant" for illegal aliens. And they change the meanings of words, like "gay" used to mean "happy;" "discriminate" used to mean "tell the difference" or "differentiate;" and "rights" used to be something you were allowed to do, not something someone else was required to do for you.
If "journalists" want to be credible, they need to bring out their sources and report the news, not opinions. Citing an anonymous source is just another way of saying the "reporter" made it up, i.e., it's a lie.
I guess most of today's reporters never had to write a report in school. I remember that when I got information on my topic, I had to make notations, footnotes, and any other "notes" that I am sure I have fogotten, all to lend credence and honesty to my reports. All of these fake news reporters need to go back to report writing 101...just saying.
CNN is a lying bunch of trump haters. all mainstream media uses same fake sources and all repeat the same montra. New York times and washington post has been proven to lie many times. They look for crap to say about crap. Every person in the room said this was false reporting and yet the media still run with this. There is no journalism. No one verifies any lie they put out. it is sad.
Since i have been witness to too many lies on CNN . I don't trust them anymore . Many times they quoted Trump and they always leaved essential words out of the speech and that changed the whole meaning of what he was saying . That's not what journalism suppose to be . I hate it when they put a spin on everything . Yesterday after the so called accident in New York ( i don't believe it was an accident ) CNN was still bashing Trump , instead of reporting what was going on in New York .
There are not enough words to describe the irretrievably uniformed and 'never to be critical thinkers' of Trumpov supporters.
I used to think that I weep for the future.ow, I cry buckets for the present.
Trump is a malignant narcissist. And maybe a term the you may relate to: Man Child.
May all of the Gods bless us and save us.
I often wonder how to get on the CNN msm committee that makes this crappola up...all the while ignoring real news, like the Seth Rich business...
Just to go off topic a bit. I hope everyone has noticed that Sharpensteen never posts, and only makes his snarky comments to others posts. I got to wondering why, and all I could come up with was that he has no original thoughts of his own, and just snarks whatever he is told to.
Their anonymous sources this past year have been as accurate as the half dozen women these same media shills paraded as being violated by Trump. Where are those women? They ignore and downplay the more believable women that accuse Bill Clinton yet of the dozen women that they use against Trump are... MIA. It is hard to believe these Fake News outlets when they have nothing to back their claims except "heresay."
I don't know but if I was the "anonymous source" and I felt my country was being put in jeopardy by some thing like this I would have no problem comming foward and letting everyone know exactly what I heard. What exactly are they protecting this source from? Just doesn't make any sense if you think about it. Like Judge Judy say's if it doesn't make sense, it's not true.
I'm with Carl - especially noteworthy is his knowledge of 'after action'. One anchor out of five seems to have a brain that is not washed by political rhetoric. Perfect example of why CNN is not even on my radar. Carl perhaps you can get a job at FOX - you would dovetail nicely with their lineup.
so kirsten finally went over to cnn. good. she was such a hack when she was with fox. btw the melt down by these idiots is entertaining. they always hide behind the "anonymous" sources to propagate fake news all the time. no surprise there. Turmp did NOT say he shared "classified information." what surprises me is that that navy seal guy did not bash that black dude's face in when he yepped his mouth off, sitting 6 inches from him.
What is sad is that the fake news clowns at CNN really take themselves seriously. They have no journalistic skills and do not permit opposing views unless they stack the group with angry blacks. Some of the angry women would scare the WWE stars because they are loud and disgusting.
Anonymous sources are a crooked reporters license to LIE! And that is exactly what they do. Anonymous sources should be illegal.
When someone goes to court over a report from an AS, it is illegal they have a Constitutional right to confront their accusers. I know it is rare that this happens, but as I said it gives less than credible reporters Carte Blanche to outright lie and claim an AS.
They should be outlawed in media, like he said let them face the camera. It would never happen because half the time there is no AS, it's just fake reporting like CNN is famous for.
I'll bet they have polls showing, you can't trust someone who was Actually in the room over two anonymous sources! That's just ? crazy! And by the way, which Ever person gets the angriest and bellows at the voice of reason, wins the argument !?? Comedy at its Best!
Laughable considering they just got outed for two more FAKE NEWS LIES; 1. Acting FBI Director wanted to quit; 2. Comey was denied resources for the "RussiaGate" investigation. Hilarious that they think this is "good journalism". In reality they know they are in a coreographed False Narrative to bring the Trump Administration down because the Banksters, Corpo Media, and Corrupt Politicians like the Clintonistas are scared as hell that an honest American is the President.
Thank you Carl for standing up to "psycho Kate Bolduan". If they're so "STELLAR" why can't she control herself. She acted like a pit bull on a chain going for the juglar. She's lucky that it was Carl's face she was shouting into because he's got a lot of self-control. Had it been me, I would have rearranged her grill for her!
The Navy Seal should stick to combat. The only way to get and keep getting info is through anominity until they need to testift. No anominity no more info given. Very simliar to the muslim community. You want trerrorists and communication. Let ppl remain anonymous.
Phfluck these leftist twats and media pricks and their opinions. These people can stick their opinions and fake news up their stinking keisters. I have no interest and don't give a total damn about who the phfluck they are, what they say, who they work for. I don't give these shits my time at all. I listen to Conservative Talk Radio like Rush Limbaugh, Hugh Hewitt, Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager, Shawn Hannity, Larry Elder, Herman Cain. I will watch Fox News on occasion and agree with them a lot on what they discuss. Screw the rest of the Leftist Liberal Media Limp Organs.
In my journalistic training, the fundamental standard for news reporting is that, if you cannot name or quote your source (i.e., your source speaks to you on condition of anonymity) then you cannot use or reference that information in your story, as your reporting is unable to be corroborated, verified, and your source is unaccoutnable for the information. The value of "anonymous sources" is properly professionally limited to pointing you to further investigation that may develop sources that can be named or quoted. Most of the "mainstream media" needs to go back to classic journalism school if they want to regain any credibility for "reporting the news", which involves stepping away from journalistic activism parading as news reporting.
These people are a complete embarrassment. They don't care that they emarass themselves. What a bunch of losers. "Trump said he shared information". So fucking what. He didn't share classified information, the people in the meeting even said it. These people should be fired immediately. You asshole Libs need to read up on sharing information with countries with whom we have common enemies. GFY.
It's so convincing to have 3 people shout at someone for not believing 'anonymous sources' who don't want to come out and be named, and then drag in Whitewater as a reference point. Just stating over and over 'Trump admitted to sharing information with Russians' is about as telling a point as saying 'Hillary Clinton shared information over a server'. That's interesting, but hardly news. It's odd that people will shout over Trump's ability - as a President - to share information with another country's leaders....and then expect not to have Hillary Clinton's inappropriate usage of classified information quoted back to them. If Russia had information, it's quite possible that some of the leaks could trace back to Hillary's lack of concern about informational safety. Where is the dialogue about Hillary's contempt for her country?
They cannot name the source of the Trump and the commies because Barack Osama Bin Obama's team choas made the whole thing up.
This seal is a hero off camera and on camera. Good for him for expressing his views on the truth. CNN needs to stop MAKING the news and start REPORTING IT FAIRLY.
CNN is the only station in my house that's blocked, as they are to agenda based and propaganda isn't my thing.
