Sweden: CNN Needs to Do its Homework

Sunday, February 19, 2017 16:32
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

CNN is all beside itself piking at Donald Trump’s “Look what is happening in Sweden last night” comment. They can’t find out what happened last night in the way of a terror attack. The Swedes (some of them anyway ) say they’re puzzled too.

Trumps says that his comment was in  reference to a report he saw  on Fox News that was about the overall immigrant situation in Sweden. This was an interview with American journalist and pundit Ami Horowitz, who recently traveled to Scandinavia to report first hand. He was interviewed on Fox by Ed Henry.

So today, CNN questioned why Trump would depend on a  report by a conservative news outlet without any processes of vetting. First, CNN host Pamela Brown talks with reporter Athena Jones, then turns to guest commentators Ron Brownstein and Sarah Westwood. You would think that everything in Sweden is A-OK with Abba singing in the background.

CNN clearly has no idea of what is happening in Sweden. It is also a fact that the Swedish government downplays the problem (mostly in identifying the identity of rapists, criminals and rioters etc) as has been documented for years. If CNN wanted to vet the information, they could visit this site or so many others. We don’t make it up. We just go to foreign sources and report the news. As for CNN, they are so desperate to trash Trump, they jump on a story like this and make themselves look ignorant of the facts.

    Here we go again garbage from the crap news network. Read the first paragraph of the article. What did President Trump say about any terrorist attack in Sweden because I can’t seem to find it in that speech. As reported Swedish crime rate is up especially rape crime. They have admitted that they let in more than one hundred and sixty thousand refugees and only five hundred have been able to find employment. That tells you that one hundred and fifty-nine thousand five hundred have been unable to find jobs. That’s a lot of extra people on welfare so I would say yes they do have a problem. Someone has to pay for that and remember they admitted crime rates were up. The goffy looking guy in the glasses same old same old. The presidents words should be vetted, this has been the problem for years. Oh you can’t say that mr president you should say this mr president if you speak the truth to many people will know. As I last checked Mr President Trumps approval ratings were at fifty five percent. Now, like unemployment figures if you want the thirty-five percent figure you have to break it down to if you poll the college students that are living at home with a single parent in a yellow brick house in a cul de sac in southwestern New York blah, blah blah you know how they get the figures they want.
