To their credit, at least THIS time, the source isn’t ‘unnamed’.
The good citizens of Iran have had enough of their totalitarian dictator, and they are rising up in protest against them.
This is the same regime, you will remember, that Team Obama was so desperate to pacify that they were willing to overlook a Billion-Dollar-A-Year terror, drug, weapons, and money-laundering network. In the end, Obama wound up delivering a planeload of unmarked bills to them.
And CNN, like other news networks, was lockstep with Obama in that project.
Obama’s flunkie, Rhodes had actually bragged about that:
Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes made the comments as part of an extensive profile in The New York Times Magazine. The article detailed how Rhodes’ “war room” worked to influence Capitol Hill lawmakers and reporters as the details of the Iranian nuclear deal were being hammered out in negotiations.
“We created an echo chamber,” Rhodes said, when asked about arms-control experts that appeared at think tanks and were then used as sources for hundreds of reporters – whom the article described as “clueless.”
Of those experts, Rhodes said: “They were saying things that validated what we had given them to say.”
So should it really surprise us when CNN gets busted being an echo chamber…
…for the Iranian Regime itself?
Guys, when you're being accused of being fake-news propaganda, maybe try not to write stories that read like Iranian Pravda…. (or the Onion!) https://t.co/va8hLctCMN

CNN was posting images from Tasnim News Agency, the official media arm of the Iranian government
“What the f-ck is CNN doing,” one of my Persian family members screamed, “They are posting images from the Iranian government in their coverage of Iran!” Unlike me, my extended Persian family trusts CNN, and they were appalled to see CNN post images from Tasnim News Agency.
The Tasnim News Agency’s mission, it says right on their site, includes “Defending the Islamic Revolution against negative media propaganda campaign and providing our readers with realities on the ground about Iran and Islam, specially current wave of the Islamic Awakening in the region are top on our agenda in Tasnim News Agency.”
CNN screengrabbed right off the pro-Iranian regime propaganda site… and had to change it after getting busted.
You know, the same government regime that shut down their internet!

Leftist news outlets elsewhere seem to be following that same trend:
Don't cover the chants protesting against an Islamic republic.
Don't cover the courageous Iranian woman defiantly removing her hijab to protest the Islamic dress code.
But run this instead.

And so Twitter made fun of their obsession with a ‘mysterious’ white truck hampering CNN’s efforts to ‘Paparazzi’ Trump’s golf game:

Meanwhile, the President is being congratulated for being a strong defender of the Iranian people.
With one tweet, President @realDonaldTrump has done more to show America's stalwart support for the Iranian people than former President Barack Obama did in eight years. #Iranprotests https://t.co/VWhcjL6uIC

With tweets like this one:
Big protests in Iran. The people are finally getting wise as to how their money and wealth is being stolen and squandered on terrorism. Looks like they will not take it any longer. The USA is watching very closely for human rights violations!

Isn’t that the same guy who ‘cheered’ the ‘Arab Spring’ that led to the collapse of several countries and the rise of Islamist regimes?
But when the people of Iran wanted change… he had nothing to say. Nor did the Democrats’ lapdog media.
Maybe that explains another of Trump’s tweets this weekend:
I use Social Media not because I like to, but because it is the only way to fight a VERY dishonest and unfair “press,” now often referred to as Fake News Media. Phony and non-existent “sources” are being used more often than ever. Many stories & reports a pure fiction!

Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
What Jim Acosta, Rachel Maddow and the Rest of The Media (D) STILL haven’t figured out
yet is why we call them ‘Fake News’.
Let’s spell it out for them. In a shirt.
Because you know they won’t be able to figure it out on their own.
There’s a ladies’ version…
And a men’s version…
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made
