Yeah, CNN.... this single inaccurate report is what makes people think CNN is anti Trump propaganda... not 90% of your news feed from the past 3 years.
Right now they are more worried about blow back and that this helps the President than they are reporting truthfully. "I have a different view of the implications of all this. My view is the larger message that a lot of people are going to take from this story is that the news media are a bunch of leftist liars who are dying to get the president, and they're willing to lie to do it,"...."I just think this is a bad day for us," Jeffery Toobin CNN analysts "And he did do the president one, because as you saw with Rudy Giuliani and as I'm sure you'll see with the president himself, this allows them to say, 'You can't believe it. You can't believe what you read, you can't believe what you hear, you can only believe us. Even the special counsel says that the media doesn't get it right,'" Chris Cuomo CNN news anchor

❝ Men without hope, resigned to despair and oppression, do not make revolutions. It is when expectation replaces submission, when despair is touched with the awareness of possibility, that the forces of human desire and the passion for justice are unloosed. ❞ — Robert F. Kennedy
❝ The essential humanity of men can be protected and preserved only where government must answer — not just to the wealthy, not just to those of a particular religion, or a particular race, but to all its people. ❞ — Robert F. Kennedy
This was a serious business, it was actually backed by Goldman Sachs, but it crashed and went bankrupt because the gamers themselves who weren't cheating became enraged basically that these other people were doing, they put so much pressure on the gaming companies.
They put so much pressure on the video game companies, that they decided to basically ban gold-farming, which killed Bannon's business, but it awakened him to the power of what he called "rootless white males" who spend all their time online. And five years later when Bannon wound up at Breitbart, he resolved to try and attract those people over to Breitbart because he thought they could be radicalized in a kind of populist, nationalist way. And the way that Bannon did that, the bridge between the angry abusive gamers and Breitbart and Pepe was Milo Yiannopoulous, who Bannon discovered and hired to be Breitbart's tech editor.
From the time I met him in 2011, he's had exactly the same politics. The same stuff you heard from Trump, you saw on the campaign trail. What he was looking for was a vessel because nobody in Republican Washington believed in these kinds of ideas. The whole trend in the Republican party was toward liberalizing immigration laws, passing comprehensive immigration reform. He was against it.
Devil's Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency
What an amazing event this was! It’s sad to me to see so many detailed posts from mainstream media about the Women’s March, but hardly a mere mention of the March For Life, an event supported by both @vp and President @realdonaldtrump
- What we worked on was ... data harvesting programs where we would pull data from users of apps and all of their friend networks and run that data through algorithms that could profile their personality traits and other psychological attributes, Wylie told CNN’s Don Lemon Monday evening.
Wylie said the ultimate goal was to obtain information in order to exploit mental vulnerabilities that our algorithms showed that [Facebook users] had.
In addition to Wylie and Cambridge Analytica, accounts of Cambridge Analytica’s parent company, Strategic Communication Laboratories, and those of a University of Cambridge psychologist Aleksandr Kogan were also suspended.
The accounts were suspended because Facebook received reports that data that had been shared with Cambridge and Wylie from Kogan’s app may not have been completely deleted. Kogan’s app was removed in 2015 and Facebook said they had been previously provided certifications that the data had been deleted. - Several days ago, we received reports that, contrary to the certifications we were given, not all data was deleted, Facebook said Friday. - We are moving aggressively to determine the accuracy of these claims. If true, this is another unacceptable violation of trust and the commitments they made. We are suspending SCL/Cambridge Analytica, Wylie and Kogan from Facebook, pending further information.
Special counsel Robert Mueller asked Cambridge Analytica last fall to surrender emails from any of its employees who worked for the Trump campaign, the Wall Street Journal reported in December. The firm complied to the request.

Former U.S. National Security Adviser Michael Flynn admitted on Friday that he asked Russia to delay a U.N. vote seen as damaging to Israel, but diplomats said it was not the only country he and presidential adviser Jared Kushner lobbied.
In the hours before the vote by the 15-member United Nations Security Council on Dec. 23, Flynn also phoned the U.N. missions of Uruguay and Malaysia, and Kushner spoke with Kim Darroch, the British ambassador to the United States, according to diplomats familiar with the conversations, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The lobbying took place before Republican President Donald Trump, who was known for his pro-Israel campaign rhetoric, took office on Jan. 20. It failed, with the Security Council adopting a resolution demanding an end to Israeli settlement building on land Palestinians want for an independent state. The vote was 14 in favor and one abstention by the United States.
The efforts made on Israel's behalf capped several days of unusual diplomacy. In a surprise Dec. 21 move, Egypt had called for a vote the next day on the draft resolution, prompting both Trump and Israel to urge Washington to veto the text.
A senior Israeli official told Reuters that Israeli officials contacted Trump's transition team at a "high level" to ask for help after failing to persuade Democratic President Barack Obama's administration to veto the draft U.N. resolution.
According to court documents made public on Friday, a member of Trump's presidential transition team, later identified by sources as Trump's son-in-law Kushner, told Flynn on Dec. 22 to contact officials from foreign governments, including Russia, to convince them to delay the vote or veto the resolution.
Flynn spoke with then-Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergei Kislyak that day.
