CNN, Buzzfeed has egg on their face after publishing fake news again.

One of the most outrageous unconfirmed allegations in the report claims the Russians recorded Trump watching Russian prostitutes urinate on each other in a Moscow hotel room previously occupied by President and Mrs. Barack Obama.

Not only do they publish fake news from the Government, but then they get trolled on this by 4Chan.

Just sad when there are more reliable alternative news sources then the MSM and CNN is pushing govprop or fake news.

They didn't fall for anything. They rushed to publish juicy gossip -- being against Trump was a bonus -- and absolved themselves of responsibility by sprinkling words like "unconfirmed" and "allegations" around.

All media this morning is reporting this and then adding "unconfirmed." ABC admitted this morning that this story was shopped to them(they didn't say when but you can bet it was prior to the election).

CNN really though is why this hit the media and I think that put's in them in line with the likes of Gawker. Jake Tapper of all people put BuzzFeed's editor on yesterday to let him push the story. CNN having him on gave the other media cover to cover this.

My favorite thing was the Trump team guy that the report said met with Russia in Prague. He said I've never been to Prague and was at USC on the date the report claims he was in Prague.
