A group of voters were recently assembled in Ohio following the testimony of James Comey. The nine citizens were asked by CNN National Correspondent Gary Tuchman to respond to several questions, and the result was definitely not what the cable network had planned.
“First thing I want to ask you: It is a crime when you testify before Congress to lie,” Tuchman stated in a clear attempt to “prep” the panel. “That is perjury. You can go to prison for it.”
Then, Tuchman asked what the citizens thought. “Raise your hand if you believe James Comey lied at all.” To CNN’s undoubted chagrin, four of the nine panelists put their hands in the air.
“He [Comey] said that Donald Trump, quote, ‘Lies plain and simple,'” continued Tuchman. “Raise your hand if you believe Donald Trump has lied at all about the situation.”
Not a single voter on the panel raised their hand — but then things got even worse for CNN.
The shocked correspondent asked for an explanation of why some panelists didn’t raise their hand at either question. A woman in the front row gave an answer that the liberal network was absolutely not expecting.
“Well, first of all, things can be distorted and appear like lies,” the plainspoken woman responded.
She then gave the CNN journalist a scolding look. “And I think maybe the media might have distorted some things and now we’re not getting both sides.”
The big names in media have tried for months to destroy President Trump, citing “anonymous sources” and reporting things that turned out to be the complete opposite of the truth.
Americans are no longer taking the bait, and the media shell game no longer works. Citizens trust the mainstream media about as much as they believe James Comey — and that’s not saying a lot.
