Major fallout from former DNC Chair Donna Brazil’s bombshell that claimed Hillary Clinton rigged the Democrat primaries to oust then-candidate Bernie Sanders continues to rock the political world.
Brazile, who worked as a CNN contributor before she was caught feeding then-presidential candidate Clinton questions before a CNN town hall, is now in the network’s crosshairs, according to reports.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson accused CNN of a concerted effort to smear Brazile in order to discredit their former colleague and ally.
“The national media are part of the establishment,” Carlson said on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Monday.
“According to highly informed sources we spoke to – highly informed – top management at CNN directed its employees to undermine Brazile’s credibility. Anchors and producers were vocally offended by her attacks on their friends, the Clintons,” he continued.
“If you’ve been watching that channel, you may have noticed CNN’s anchors suggesting that Donna Brazile cannot be trusted, precisely because she took part in efforts to break the primaries for Clinton.”
Tucker used a recent clip of CNN’s Anderson Cooper trashing Brazile for leaking the town hall question to Clinton to portray his former colleague in a bad light. In other words, Brazile has quickly become enemy No. 1 for CNN.
Former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly called the accusation, if true, a major story:
Fox News reporting that CNN management ordering air talent to trash Donna Brazile. If true, major media story.

O’Reilly’s tweet sent of a firestorm of reaction:
CNN has zero credibility anymore, in my book. Ex. just today about Trump feeding the koi in Japan (yes, this was a big deal to them).

Yep because they don’t want the truth out there/I hope that she sees what they are doing & she unloads more things on HRC/DNC. Whistleblower

Thank God Donna has a conscience and is brave enough to to tell the truth about Crooked Hillary.

I agree. She’s making $$$ with her tell-all book and it’s only because Crooked Hillary lost.

Many folks were hung up on O’Reilly’s use of words “if true” and tried to exonerate CNN of a witch hunt against Brazile.
If true being the key words. Since we’re talking about Faux News it’s probably an alternate truth.

“If true”…but, you’re going to tweet about it anyway.

It’s not a stretch to suspect CNN would seek to discredit Brazile given its openly biased coverage of the presidential election and open Trump-hate since Donald Trump took office.
And many folks claim the report indicates CNN is simply living up to its many well-deserved monikers:
CNN is truly FAKE news. I can’t believe how many people are hoodwinked by the liars.

CNN = Corrupt News Network

Brazile is taking fire from all sides since her bombshell broke, but she doesn’t look to be backing down any time soon. Hours after the Clinton camp bashed her, she shot back and told them to “go to Hell.”
