The Fox News website reports that Orrin Hatch is retiring. Their headline:
“Veteran senator announces he will not run for re-election in 2018”
CNN’s headline ran as follows:
“Trump begged Hatch to run. He retired anyway.”
Fox’s headline reported facts. CNN’s slanted theirs to make President Trump look bad. Trump typically does that all by himself, but CNN simply is incapable of reporting even the most straight-forward story, like this, without slanting it.
The suggestion is that the venerable Mr. Hatch is getting out of the Senate because of Trump, rather than the shifting political sands in his home state which have seen his popularity slip.
CNN has fallen ridiculously far. What they report is but a faint whiff of authentic journalism.
