Well, CNN is back at it again. As a news source, it’s CNN’s job to report anything newsworthy and to be fair about it. But, we’ve all quickly learned that is very far from true when it involves CNN. They constantly push their own agenda, a very left-wing minded liberal agenda.
By now, most people have heard that Trump made heavy allegations that Obama had Trump Tower wiretapped during the presidential election process. Obviously we expect Obama and the people close to him to come out and deny the report immediately. That much was expected, and it was a given. However, would you expect a news source, who claims they have no political affiliations, to immediately rebuff such claims? Well that’s exactly what CNN did when they wrote this headline on their website about the Trump wiretapping claims: “Trump Falsely Accuses Obama Of Wiretapping Him”. That type of headline is extremely misleading considering this is fresh story and CNN would have absolutely no additional information to provide, otherwise that would also be all over the headlines.
Just to quickly recap what happened – President Trump took to Twitter early Saturday morning making hefty claims that President Obama wiretapped the phone lines at Trump Tower as well as his private servers in an attempt to find something to derail Trump’s presidency campaign in favor of Hillary Clinton. Those are very big claims. Claims I wouldn’t expect Trump to make out of thin air, two months into his own presidency and four months after this alleged event occurred. So, there must be some sort of evidence to support this claim. Obama has been known to quietly invade people’s privacy many times during his time as president. Some high profile people reported having their phone lines wiretapped, he’s used drones to spy on citizens and people worldwide. Let’s put this very simply: This is not something that’s crazy to imagine Barack Obama doing. He’s done it before.
After CNN decided to release such a misleading headline, they were trolled all over Twitter by other people who’ve actually been paying attention, rather than turning away from the wrongs Obama and his administration committed.

CNN quick to declare Obama innocent of wiretapping accusation — but Twitter says ‘not so fast’
President Donald Trump on Saturday accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower in the latter stages of last year’s presidential campaign. A spokesman for Obama was quick to deny the accusations, while congressmen and women have vowed to get to the bottom of the accusations.
Either way, it’s hard for anyone at this point to make a determination either way whether or not Trump’s accusations against Obama are true or full of hot air.
However, that didn’t stop CNN on Saturday from fully declaring Obama’s innocence.
Running a story about Trump’s claims Saturday, CNN declared: “Trump falsely accuses Obama of wiretapping him.”
Again, no determination has been made either way and, at this point, facts are sparse. Politicos on both sides of the aisle have made comments about the accusations — some saying they’re true, others saying they’re false — and it will probably be some time before America is informed of the actual facts.
But making the determination without facts was something Twitter would not give CNN a pass on. Users went on to skewer the cable news network for their headline:
CNN host Brian Stelter, who originally noted CNN’s “blunt” headline, later called Trump the “conspiracy theory president” during an interview on CNN.
It also appears CNN has since updated the headline on the story to read, “Trump’s baseless wiretap claim.”
Well that's it everyone. CNN solved it. https://t.co/a3veFUQd8f
