Kellyanne Conway Wrongfully Accuses CNN

Yesterday, CNN reported on claims that Russia made efforts to compromise President-elect Donald Trump. BuzzFeed published the 35-page dossier that alleges Russian operatives compromised financial and personal information about Trump. Both publications have been called out by the Trump campaign as being fake news.

CNN's Anderson Cooper interviewed Kellyanne Conway today and she insisted that " [CNN] linked to the BuzzFeed article." Cooper stated that his news organization never links to the dossier because the material is unverified.

Here are all links in CNN's article accompanied with screenshots to prove that BuzzFeed was never linked to anywhere in CNN's publication.

1) "Prompted then-Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid..."


"Reviewing newly discovered emails that might be linked to Clinton's private server."

"Clinton's FBI investigation: What you need to know"

2) "Since been published by Buzzfeed"

Conway tweeted that CNN linked to BuzzFeed but evidently didn't click the link because you're not directed to the memos.

CNN directs you to an article that was published by their own Dylan Byers.


"CNN revealed"

"Tweeted Mark Horowitz"

"Jonathan Chalt observed."

"Michael Wolff wrote"

"He tweeted out"

"The organization tweeted"

3) "Russia denies having "Krompromat" on Donald Trump"


"CNN reported Tuesday"

"Read More:..."

"BuzzFeed on Tuesday night"

"At a senate hearing on Tuesday"

4) "Were first reported publicly in Mother Jones"

David Corn touches on what the allegations are but never links to the BuzzFeed. Articles published by CNN don't even link to BuzzFeed.

Journalists should publish credible stories. But when credible journalists are being called out for fake journalism, we should be scared. Intensive research for credability should always be conducted before allegations are made and that is why CNN and Esther-Irene Egan do not link to the BuzzFeed publication.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
