Skip to comments.More Bad News For CNN As Jake Tapper Airs FAKE National Enquirer Cover
Posted on 07/02/2017 4:59:53 AM PDT by Enlightened1
Jake Tapper's show displayed the fake cover on Friday during a news report
The origins of the cover aren't known but it had been shared on Twitter
Came five days after CNN fired three journalists for a retracted news story
That story only had one source and claimed a Trump-Russia connection
Tapper had been covering ongoing feud between Trump and Morning Joe hosts
Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski say White House tried to blackmail them
Trump and White House insiders say that claim is nonsense
Just five days after CNN laid off three journalists amid a 'fake news' scandal, the channel reportedly made another slip-up on Jake Tapper's show.
On Friday Tapper reported on claims that the White House had told MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski to apologize for his negative coverage or suffer a National Enquirer 'expose' on their lives.
Unfortunately, the National Enquirer cover that was picked to illustrate the magazine's often salacious content was completely fake, Page Six reported.
The cover - which may have been created as clickbait according to Page Six - promises a 'Presidential shocker!'
Dated April 16, 2016, it has the cover line 'Heidi Cruz betrayed by cheating husband!' and claims 'sensational photo proof' of a 'sordid threesome' and 'sleazy love letters.'
It also claimed that Ted Cruz was 'named in madam's black book' and promises 'the most explosive tell-all interview ever.'
Unfortunately for Tapper, the cover is literally fake news: It was never an actual cover of the newspaper, according to insiders at the National Enquirer.
It's not known where it originated, but it was shared to Ted Cruz's Twitter feed by 'DeplorableTrumpEagle' in April 2016.

Snake Yapper - SWAMPCREATURE
The sources of fake news are fake.
I’m waiting for CNN exclusive “TRUMP MEETS BATBOY”....
Its about as far as CNN as sunk
At this point, I seriously have to believe that somebody inside CNN is deliberately trying to torpedo the network. Ineptitude and blind hatred do not adequately explain the total abject failure CNN has become. CNN is no longer a mere train wreck; it is a train that has nosedived off a 200 foot trestle in the middle of an earthquake, hurricane, flood and wildfire with Achy Breaky Heart playing in the background.
Or perhaps they are trying to desensitize people to Fake News. They do it so many times that it becomes fake news to talk about Fake News.
I'd wager money that the young punk Carr heard the Kellyanne comments from someone more senior, like Chris Cuomo [Carr is an associate producer for sh*tboy Cuomo's mornng show] or Jake Tapper.
Tapper needs to have his mouth washed out with a knuckle sammich.
,,,,,, this is much better than watching SNL on Saturday night once a week ,,,,,, you go Mr. President ,,, we are all still with you ,,,,, we finally hired someone who will fight back for US. .
Budgets are tight. They had to chose to hire more fiction writers or fact checkers & editors. Fiction writers bring more revenue and they are able to “fact check” as well as the pros (i.e. snopes) - just google until you find confirmation of the “facts” you are looking for then give the number of Pinocchios you pre-determined if it was a conservative or “100% true” if a liberal said it.
This explains why hollywoord movies have sucked for a long time - CNN hired all the best writers.
A comedy brought into your home daily with no commercial interruptions ,,,,, beats SNL’s ratings . Mr. President ,, we’re winning !!!
Be careful Mika! Are you on the desk that a young woman hit her head on and killed herself?
A quick peek at Mikas horny hands all over Citizen Trump, many years ago!
“The video of Mika strokin Trump, looks like she wanted to be schlonged!” (That comment courtesy of Thinden!)
Diamond and Silk nailing Mika and Joe!
So Mika has the hots for President Trump. Which explains her anger and psycho Joe’s jealousy. Haha!
Nice work, Fake Tapper!
Years ago citizen, Trump said, “No thank you to the skank ho, Mika.”
Then, she tries to get revenge by attacking him daily and his wife on her dying tv show each morning!
Proof of how stupid they really are - and they think all the folks that see their crap are stupid - Priceless!
