This column from the incomparable Ann Coulter also might be called an old-fashioned “fisking,” taking apart some very fake news engineered by CNN “reporter” Ana Cabrera.
Cabrera took a real quote from President Trump (it’s “a very scary time for young men in America” due to uncorroborated sexual assault allegations) and paraphrased it to make it racial (Trump saying “white men have a lot to fear right now”), then asked a black guest to comment on the fake news to blow it up even bigger.
Later, much later, on Twitter, she apologized for her “mistake” that wasn’t a mistake. Giving her a two-fer: doing the nasty on Trump, then apologizing as if she was contrite. Poor, honest Ana, she made a boo-boo.
“The network deliberately pushed a racism narrative,” writes Coulter, “calculated to incite racial hatred that could get someone killed…If this were an error, it would have been corrected before the first commercial break. It was not corrected because it’s not a mistake; it’s a political strategy.”
And it’s a perfect example of what President Trump calls very fake news.
