Journalism used to be about reporting truth but has since become nothing more than leftist propaganda and activism.
That is certainly the case with CNN, which Dave Rubin calls “a far-left activist organization pretending to be a journalistic outfit.”
Recently, GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy met with CNN’s Kaitlan Collins to discuss some comments he allegedly made about 9/11.
Little did Kaitlan know her gotcha trap was about to blow up in her face.
She begins by reading a quote from an interview Ramaswamy did with the Atlantic: “I think it is legitimate to say how many police, how many federal agents, were on planes that hit the Twin Towers. Maybe the answer is zero. It probably is zero for all I know, right? I have no reason to think it was anything other than zero, but if we’re doing a comprehensive assessment of what happened on 9/11, we have a 9/11 commission, absolutely that should be an answer the public knows the answer to,” Ramaswamy allegedly stated.
“Explain to me what you meant there,” Kaitlan says.
“It’s funny, I mean, the Atlantic is playing the same game as CNN,” he responds, visibly frustrated. “What I said is, on January 6 I do believe that there were many federal agents in the field, and we deserve to know who they are; on 9/11 what I've said is that the government lied,” specifically about “Saudi Arabia's involvement.”
“Are you telling me that your quote is wrong here?” she presses.
“I am telling you the quote is wrong, actually,” says Ramaswamy, adding that their conversation is “just lifting the curtain on how media works.”
Apparently he had asked the reporter who conducted the interview to send him the recording, but “he refused to do it,” likely because he intended to misquote him.
“The truth is, there are lies the government has told about 9/11, but it’s not the ones that somebody put in my mouth,” he tells Kaitlan.
But that’s just the beginning. Their conversation gets even more heated when Kaitlan broaches the subject of Ramaswamy’s comments regarding putting guns in Taiwanese households.
