CNN is in the middle of a massive crisis.

A producer was caught on a hidden camera admitting the network’s Russia coverage was fake news.

But was even more shocking was the reaction of one Republican.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough was once a conservative member of Congress.

Over the years as the host of MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’, he’s drifted leftward.

After James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released a video of a CNN producer admitting the network had nothing on the Russia story and only hyped it for ratings, conservatives –and even some fair minded liberals – blasted CNN for shoddy journalism and contributing to an environment where Americans already do not trust the news media.

Not Joe Scarborough.

He rushed to his cable news compatriot’s defense on twitter.

Scarborough’s tweets were in response to Trump ripping CNN on social media and Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders scolding CNN from the press briefing room.

The amount of time network newscasts spent on the Russia story reveals the media’s defensiveness about the issue.

O’Keefe’s video reveals the media to have spent hours promoting a hoax.

The only reason to spend so much time on a story everyone knows to be false is because the truth isn’t the end goal.

Journalists are obsessed with forcing Trump from office.

They believe they can create enough of a scandal around Trump that he commits some sort of process crime like obstruction of justice or that it will generate enough political headwinds to elect Democrats who will proceed with impeachment.
