Jonathan Gilliam: CNN's Standards Sink Below the National Enquirer

Newsmax TV's "America Talks Live"

Thursday, 19 Jan 2017 02:57 PM

CNN has been dispensing "fake news" to help Democrats and its journalistic standards have plunged below those of the National Enquirer, former Navy SEAL and FBI special agent Jonathan T. Gilliam, who once worked as a law enforcement analyst for the cable-news giant, tells Newsmax TV.

His charges follow an incendiary question posed Wednesday by CNN's Wolf Blitzer on "The Situation Room" — "What if an incoming president and his immediate successors were wiped out on day one?" — the answer being Secretary of State John Kerry or House Speaker Paul Ryan.

"Having left CNN in November, I will give you my opinion on where they've gone and they are below the National Enquirer now as far as I'm concerned in news and the quality of what they're reporting," Gilliam said Thursday to Bill Tucker on "America Talks Live."

"They were actually putting out fake news, then they were condemning fake news to cover the fact that they were doing things in collusion with the Democratic Party and now you have them showing their true colors where they're acting just like activists."

He was referring to CNN's report on a secret dossier that told of alleged and unsubstantiated sexual behavior the president-elect was said to have engaged in, in Russia — events Trump has condemned as completely false.

"They basically went from the Democratic Party's mouthpiece to the liberal far left, I would say almost, Communist mouthpiece," said Gilliam, host of "The Experts" on Facebook Live.

"A report like [Blitzer's] does absolutely no good. It doesn't inform the public as to exactly what security procedures are going to take place and what it does is add fuel to the fire of those that wish harm upon the President-elect Donald J. Trump. I just think it's distasteful, does no one any good."

Trump has also called out CNN, accusing the network of reporting fake news and one of its reporters was nearly booted from the president-elect's recent news conference.
