CNN Launches Cunning #FactsFirst Campaign to Restore Their Reputation

The right has worked hard to destroy the reputation of CNN, one of the world’s most reputable news organizations. Through slander, lies and fake news, the alt right and Donald Trump have chipped away at CNN’s credibility, while the struggling news organization’s reporters and accredited journalists have desperately tried to counter these attacks with facts and reasoned arguments. But the attacks have only intensified, holding CNN to an impossibly high standard that no accredited news organization could ever be expected to meet. Nonetheless, CNN continues to courageously cover the Russia scandal in the face of these intimidation tactics, with new breaking stories about how Putin’s hackers targeted Pokemon Go to undermine US democracy.

CNN isn’t going back down in the face of this bullying from Donald Trump and his alt right terrorist supporters, and they’ve just released a new campaign to combat their lies head on, by reiterating that CNN cares about facts. In their first #FactsFirst campaign video, they start by explaining what a fact is, in case you don’t know, with the example of an apple. As they explain, an apple is an apple. It isn’t something else, like a banana. It is what it is. If something is something, then it is that thing that it is. They also explain that facts are facts, whether you like them or not, and they fearlessly report them. So just because Trump supporters may not like the fact that Russia hacked the election, it’s still a fact, and they better accept it.

Here is the campaign video that has the alt right running scared, and has Trump quaking in his boots:

The campaign hashtag #FactsFirst has already suffered vicious attacks on twitter by right wing trolls, but the accredited media has explained these attacks away with a variety of accredited articles.

The campaign has only run for two days though, so let’s wait and see what happens. I think it’s safe to say that this is going to have a devastating affect on the populists and right wingers who use post-truth to push emotional narratives, rather than making a case with reasoned and evidence. This will force the alt right to use actual facts to back up their arguments, which they can’t do, and will therefore lead to their eventual demise.

Veneer on top of veneer, laid over veneer. Send fumigators. What’s causing Don Lemon’s crying bouts?

It is also because he is so worried about Trumps mental state.

Facts can be discerned by monkeys. Objectivity is CNN’s defect, it has none. If I want half the story, I watch CNN.

Some people are apple-shaped, some are banana-shaped, and some, like Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper, strongly prefer bananas.

CNN reports the truth! #FactsFirst!!!

The problem this has caused is due to printing errors in old biology books a lot of the right wingers now think those teachings are facts. They now want us progressives to believe that there are only 2 genders and a fetus cell cluster is a baby.
We need to get Math and Biology books outlawed immediately. These micro aggression’s of them throwing what they think are facts is causing me to feel threatened.

The 1960s mark the time where we finally rejected 1000s of years’ worth of accumulated knowledge, aka “wisdom,” and started seeing the world for how we would like it to be, because we felt bad about things.

Now, we have people actually getting worms from drinking raw milk…measles is making a comeback due to lack of vaccination practices by parents.

Biology is whatever we say it is. And we have always been at war with Eastasia.

This is a brilliant strategic move for the progressive side and I’m anxious to see how Trump and his merry band of alt-right heretics handle this one. To the unaccredited eye, this marketing ploy might appear to be so simplistic as to need no explanation, but this is CNN and I fully trust their grasp of reality. I’ve already begun hashtag bombing #factsfirst on every social media account I have.

They’ll “handle” this by screaming and crying, just like the pathetic “bro-flakes” they are.
