UNBELIEVABLE: CNN Instructs Viewers to Ignore Susan Rice Story [VIDEO]

Monday, the news broke that Susan Rice, Barack Obama’s national security adviser, ordered the “unmasking” of Trump associates and aides. It immediately became a huge story, with many rightly pointing out that her actions were unethical and possibly illegal. CNN, on the other hand, is doing everything they can to bury the story.

According to CNN, this is nothing but a “diversion” that their viewers should ignore. CNN’s Chris Cuomo interviewed a Democratic congressman and claimed it was “demonstrably untrue/” The network’s chief national security correspondent, Jim Sciutto, was pushed on air to say how it was a non-story, even arguing that Rice’s refusal to address the unmasking scandal two weeks ago was simply because she “wasn’t aware” what unmasking Devin Nunes was referring to. Sciutto also claimed that the Rice scandal was “ginned up” to distract from Donald Trump’s tweets accusing Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower. “Again, to note by senior intelligence officials who work for both Democrats and Republicans, this appears to be a story, largely ginned up, partly as a distraction from this larger investigation,” Sciutto said.

“From her perspective she didn’t know what specific unmasking Devin Nunes and others are talking about, in part because that is something she asks — or asked during the regular course of her work as national security adviser,” he also claimed. “I do know from speaking to people yesterday close to her that she doesn’t know specifically what Devin Nunes and others are accusing her of when it comes to unmasking because that was something sets in the regular course of her job.”

Don Lemon may have gone the farthest in ignoring the story — literally, telling viewers he would ignore it at all costs. Lemon dismissed it as a “fake scandal ginned up by right-wing media and Trump” that he would not reward with coverage.

“On this program tonight, we will not insult your intelligence by pretending” the story is legitimate, Lemon said. “Nor will we aid and abet the people trying to misinform you, the American people, by creating a diversion. Not going to do it.”

And anchor Alisyn Camerota asked John McCain to write the story off during the Tuesday broadcast of “New Day/”

Typical biased reporting from CNN — no wonder the American people don’t trust the media.
