CNN COMPLAINS ABOUT FOX NEWS BEING CHOSEN TO HOST DEBATE; “NETWORK HAS PUSHED DISINFO, CONSPIRACY THEORIES”
Welcome to the hypocrisy zone
CNN, the network that for the best part of 3 years pushed the conspiracy theory that President Trump colluded with Russia, and attacks Trump constantly every day, is now complaining that it isn’t fair that the network hasn’t been chosen to host a Presidential Debate.
CNN host Brianna Keillar noted Thursday that “The presidential debates are set and Fox News’ Chris Wallace will monitor the first between President Trump and Joe Biden.”
“The debate commission giving the September 29th face-off to Fox despite propaganda, dishonesty, and the fact that some Fox hosts advise President Trump,” Keillar added.
Reporter Oliver Darcy then joined Keillar, and the pair whined about how biased toward Trump Fox News is (even though Trump says almost every week that Fox News is unfair to him).
Yes, Chris Wallace is a great anchor. But his network has pushed disinfo, conspiracy theories & outright lies in support of the President. And by giving Fox the first debate, the Commission on Presidential Debates is rewarding one of most destructive forces in American politics. pic.twitter.com/xOrEaGmllr

“You have to keep in mind that the network he [debate host Chris Wallace] works for has pushed propaganda, has pushed disinformation, has trafficked in lies,” Darcy proclaimed.
He then made perhaps the most hypocritical statement possible, “Their star hosts have made discrediting other news organizations and journalists a core tenet of their programs.”
This is coming from CNN, the network that literally lobbies tech companies to have other news organisations kicked off their platforms.
Darcy declared that the debate commission’s choice of Fox News’ Wallace to host the debate is a “slap in the face” to other networks, like CNN, which he claimed has reported “the truth no matter how costly it is,” and “haven’t bent the knee for this White House.”
Darcy’s assertion is, on it’s face, laughable:
but cnn would be completely impartial to TRump?

You literally think Fox is an illegitimate news outlet?
And how do you distinguish between "disinfo" and the factual errors and misleading stuff CNN runs regularly without correction?
