In the wake of CNN's latest fake news scandal - in which they appear to have conspired with Elizabeth Warren to frame Bernie Sanders as a misogynist, a claim virtually nobody believes, The Federalist's Sean Davis began crushing the anti-Trump network in a Thursday tweetstorm of Federalist articles highlighting notable lies and incompetence.
To review, the night before this week's Democratic debate, CNN - clearly using sources from Warren's campaign, floated an article claiming that Sanders told Warren in a private 2018 meeting that a woman can't beat Donald Trump in 2020. The next night, CNN ignored Bernie's denial, and asked Warren how she felt when Bernie said that - framing the question as if there was no dispute that Bernie said it.
It was so bad that MSNBC's "Morning Joe" called out the fake news network.
Then, CNN waited a day to milk a hot-mic moment in which Warren steps to Bernie and says "I think you called me a liar on live TV."

This is iron-clad proof that CNN colluded with Elizabeth Warren to knife your candidate in the back last night.
Warren did this bullshit onstage with the mics hot bc she knew it would be released.
CNN is trash propagandapic.twitter.com/GcKCYKL4FH
Hilariously, when CNN approached Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) to ask a question unrelated to Bernie, she called the network's Manu Raju (who falsely reported that Trump Jr. had advance notice of WikiLeaks dumps) a "liberal hack."
Is it my imagination or was CNN's attempted takedown of Bernie this week a turning point in how the public sees the "news" business? https://t.co/jfI6Ahcne9— Scott Adams (@ScottAdamsSays) January 16, 2020
So, without further delay - The Federalist' Sean Davis owns CNN six ways from Sunday:
CNN still refuses to explain why or how @mkraju fabricated the date on an e-mail to falsely claim @DonaldJTrumpJr secretly coordinated with Wikileaks prior to their document dumps in 2016. https://t.co/AOOicRdKVP— Sean Davis (@seanmdav) January 16, 2020

Q: Did you ever talk to Lev Parnas?
NUNES: It’s possible. But I haven’t gone through my phone records... I will go back and check all my records, but it seems very unlikely that I would be taking calls from random people pic.twitter.com/n4OYDC8jeL
