Don't think it can happen? Well then listen to what former CNN investigative journalist Amber Lyon, a three-time Emmy winning investigative journalist and photographer, had to say. She has come forward, accusing CNN of being “fake news.”
Lyon says she was ordered to report fake stories, delete unfriendly stories that would put U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama in an unfriendly light, and construct stories in specific manners, creating an image of reality that was far from the truth.
Lyon also claims, according to the reports, that CNN is paid by foreign and domestic Government agencies for specific content.
In addition to Lyon, another Emmy awarding winning investigative reporter, Sharyl Attkisson, resigned at CBS just a month ago. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network's liberal bias, an outside influence by the network's corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said.
Attkisson has been critical of CBS since her departure, expressing similar displeasure in an interview with Howard Kurtz during his Fox News media show on April 13. "There seems to be a visceral reaction to doing stories that could ruffle feathers, whether it is certain people in the political spectrum or even corporate interests," she told Kurtz. "I think there has come to be a narrowing universe of stories that are desired by the broadcasts, and it leaves us sometimes I think with newscasts that don't dig very deep."
