CNN chyron: "'ALTERNATIVE FACTS' ARE LIES"

CNN minced no words in an on-screen graphic that accused the White House of spreading “lies” in response to Trump aide Kellyanne Conway’s insistence that falsehoods were actually “alternative facts.”

On Sunday, Conway came to the defense of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer after he blasted the press for reporting that the crowds at Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration were significantly smaller than those at President Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration.

“They’re saying it’s a falsehood and our press secretary, Sean Spicer, gave alternative facts to that,” Conway insisted to NBC’s Chuck Todd on Sunday.

During coverage of Conway’s remarks later in the morning on CNN, the network’s lower-third graphic offered a four word condemnation.

“‘Alternative Facts’ Are Lies,” the chyron read.

“Paving the way of this situation are movements like the birther movement that was embraced by Donald Trump,” Chicago Sun-Times Washington Bureau Chief Lynn Sweet explained. “So if they want to look at the foundation of where this started, they could look in the mirror.”

"You can have a problem with the ideology of many of these individuals that Joe Biden has selected," Fowler explained during a segment on Fox News. "But you cannot question their qualifications and their abilities to do this job."

"Let's just think about this for a minute," he continued. "No matter what party you're in, you have to acknowledge that the Biden campaign and the Biden transition team is really looking forward facing. For the first time in American history, we'll have a woman vice president, we'll have a woman running national intelligence, we'll have an African-American woman at the U.N., we'll have a Latino man running Homeland Security. This is what America looks like."

Published

The last thing that President-elect Joe Biden wants to do is be inundated by crimes committed by the previous administration. Biden is a "worker," looking forward toward a future that repairs relationships with the international community, fixes regulations, revives government agencies and, hopefully, bring public servants back to fill positions. There's just one problem, however, Donald Trump.

Writing in the Washington Post on Tuesday, Philip Allen Lacovara, a former counselor to the Watergate special prosecutor, explained that Biden may not have any options. It's a sentiment, Andrew Weissmann, former senior attorney to special counsel Robert Mueller, agrees must happen.
