This is one of the reasons why the media has zero credibility.

When someone shows you who they are, believe them..so when CNN President Jeff Zucker admits that CNN journalists do not do investigative work, people should believe it.
CNN hosts and reporters pushed the President Trump-Russia collusion line for years, but Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s final report clears the president of any such conduct, according to Attorney General William Barr’s summary.
The network had seemingly wagered their credibility on this investigation and had banked their reputation on Trump being convicted of anything, but he wasn’t. So, now what?
According to CNN’s Brian Stelter, Zucker said CNN journalists were reporting the facts as they were presented—without verifying whether any of the claims had merit.
“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, Stelter revealed in a tweet.
“What an admission,” tweeted conservative filmmaker Mike Cernovich.
Like the rest of the liberal drive-by media, CNN pushed the ‘racist Covington students’ lie.
Former MI6 reprobate Christoper Steele relied on an unverified report from a CNN website to support the fake Trump dossier.
A CNN producer admitted that the Trump-Russia collusion story was bullshit, but they kept pushing it for ratings.
CNN hack Andrew Kaczynski drove an innocent man to suicide when he spread false information about the man as one of the Boston Marathon bombers.
CNN shill Brian Stelter admitted that he allowed anti-gun nut David Hogg to lie during an interview because “passion versus policy”.
They don’t just spew bald-faced lies, they make the news. Literally.
Two of CNN’s ‘reporters were caught staging (READ: creating) the news; one literally made up a muzzie ‘peace protest’ in London, another used a CNN camera operator as a fake protester after President Trump won the 2016 election.
A black radical CNN host encouraged an Antifa mob to attack innocent people for no other reason than that they might have voted for Donald Trump.
CNN used to be a half-way decent network back in the 80’s when it engaged mostly in straight reporting and kept its opinion segments separate.
It’s devolved into a cesspool of agitprop-spewing moonbats.
