"Louder with Crowder" host Steven Crowder set up shop outside the CNN headquarters in Washington, D.C., for his most recent installment of "Change My Mind" to ask people if they think CNN is a legitimate, unbiased news network or merely fake news masquerading as journalism.
Surprisingly, many people agreed with Steven's statement that "CNN is fake news," but then defended the network's right to be biased.
"I think, overall, every news media outlet has their own biases," a woman named Christine said. "That's not necessarily a bad thing. That's the freedom of speech and that's protected."
Steven agreed with Christine's defense of the freedom of speech and emphasized that his issue with "fake news" is that networks like CNN present opinion as if it is unbiased fact-based news.
"People like Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson are opinion, as well as Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews — you know where they line up, right? They're being forthcoming with the fact that they're op-eds men. But CNN presents itself as actual news, and that's my issue," Steven said.
"They claim it's straight-down-the-middle news," he continued. "My issue with the dishonesty is the misleading of the American public as though it is unbiased news — especially when CNN has been caught fabricating so many stories out of thin air that people, unfortunately, many people still believe them."
Christine asked Steven to provide examples of CNN fabricating stories and he was happy to comply.
"Donald Trump peeing on prostitutes: made up. The idea that Donald Trump got information from WikiLeaks beforehand ... made up. They had to retract it," he said.
"The idea that Donald Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting beforehand, they said it was an anonymous source and that Lanny Davis declined to comment: the source was Lanny Davis," he continued.
"They called Donald Trump a liar when he said that James Comey told him he wasn't under investigation: Turns out that James Comey said that three times," Crowder added.
"They were the ones who pushed the Fusion GPS /Steele dossier, you know the whole Russian collusion is pushed by the Steele dossier that was paid for by the DNC and Hilary Clinton, who did work with the Russians to try and do oppo research. ... A large percentage of Americans ... believe a lot of these verifiably false stories that came exclusively from CNN. That's my issue," he said.
Christine remained unconvinced.
