While CNN and their leftist cohorts are constantly cramming the idea of “fake” news down the throats of Americans, they themselves are committing journalistic fraud.
The latest unscrupulous tactic employed by the massive, liberal “news” network involves a double dose of their own brand of “fake” news.

Or, if you’re CNN, you steal footage from one of the most popular video games of the year and hope that nobody watching will recognize it.
