It’s bad enough that CNN has become a mouthpiece for the Democrats and the radical socialist agenda.

But it’s even worse that to perform their new role as the spokesmen for the Left they change the news to suit their Democrat masters.

And now CNN just got caught red-handed lying about Joe Biden’s position on abortion with one highly deceptive segment.

Bashing the truth

CNN is in real trouble.

They continue to bring up the rear in ratings, and they are in search of yet another new leader to try and right the ship.

Now they have been accused repeatedly of promoting the radical leftist ideology over the news.

And recently they were caught in yet another bald-faced lie.

During the network’s June 7 CNN town hall with presidential candidate Mike Pence, long-time CNN interviewer Dana Bash falsely explained Joe Biden’s position on abortion.

“He says that codifying Roe vs. Wade is his position. That means a right to an abortion until the point of viability, not up until birth.”

Of course this is a flat-out lie and even for CNN it went beyond the pale.

To make matters worse, it is a lie that is easily destroyed by anyone doing a quick Google search.

Joe Biden was endorsed in 2020 by Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion lobbies understanding they were getting a staunch abortion-on-demand President for their money.

It’s on paper, clear as day. 

The Democrat platform says it all

For example, here is the Biden-Harris Democrat platform language of 2020, “We believe unequivocally, like the majority of Americans, that every woman should be able to access high-quality reproductive health care services, including safe and legal abortion . . . Democrats oppose and will fight to overturn federal and state laws that create barriers to reproductive health and rights.” 

That one document clearly puts the Democrats, and Joe Biden, on record as being against “barriers” – “unequivocally.”

And then, once in office, Biden wholeheartedly endorsed the so-called “Women’s Health Protection Act,” which would have repealed all state restrictions on abortion. 

But when Republicans correctly pointed out it was an “abortion until birth” bill, pro-Democrat “fact checkers” threw a fit. 

Leftist PolitiFact claimed the Republican charge was “Mostly False,” since “H.R. 8296 permits abortion up until delivery, but only if it is deemed necessary to protect the life of the patient.” 

In other words, it was really “mostly true.”

And even Jake Tapper disagrees with Bash

In an earlier CNN town hall on June 4, CNN host Jake Tapper asked Presidential candidate Nikki Haley if she would sign a federal ban on abortion at six weeks. 

Haley shot back, “I will answer that when you answer – when you ask Kamala and Biden if they would agree to 37 weeks, 38 weeks, 39 weeks. Then I’ll answer your question. No one asked them that. No one asked them how late they’re willing to go.”

And Tapper seemingly agreed, responding, “I think Biden and Harris have been pretty clear that they don’t support any restrictions.” 

But then CNN must have been called to the principal’s office, because just an hour later, Tapper claimed his truthful and accurate statement was inaccurate.

No wonder CNN cant seem to keep any viewers, Americans get enough lies and leftist propaganda from the Democrats.
