    Here’s one good for a laugh.

    Doctor Laughs in Top Southern California Republican’s Face as He Asks About Vaccine Tracking Device

    One of Southern California’s top Republican lawmakers asked a doctor if there’s a tracking device inside the coronavirus vaccines being given to residents—and got the exact response he deserved. Don Wagner, a member of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, asked his question during a Tuesday meeting to discuss the possibility of vaccine passports—but he let his imagination run away with him. “Is there any intention of tracking folks?” Wagner asked OC Health Care Agency Director Dr. Clayton Chau, who replied “Nope.” Undeterred, Wagner went on: “Is there any, in the vaccine, we heard about the injection of a tracking device. Is that being done anywhere in Orange County?” Dr. Chau paused for a second before letting out a laugh and saying: “I’m sorry, I just have to compose myself. There is not a vaccine with a tracking device embedded in it that I know of that exists in the world. Period.”

    CNN can hardly take the high moral ground. Their hilarious and amateurish blunder of publishing a photo of a Ukrainian train carrying Ukrainian tanks towards the Russian border as 'proof' that Russian tanks were carrying Russian tanks towards the Ukrainian border as a precursor to a possible Russian invasion was bad enough. But their subsequent failure to even retract or apologise for this blatantly false information, rather just quietly take the photo down from their website, puts them right in the lowest cadre of fake journalism and shoddy propaganda. They have no journalistic morals or integrity remaining. Thus I am not the least interested in watching their Youtube video, or anything else from them.

    Well you won't find it on CNN now- but Sputnik have faithfully kept a copy for posterity!

    CNN Raises Eyebrows After Using Images of Ukrainian Tanks While Bashing Russia's 'War Preparations' - Sputnik International (sputniknews.com)

    "Dear CNN TV channel and its staff. We realize that you have no time for fact-checking, since you’re so immersed in ideological struggle for the triumph of liberalism," she wrote in a Facebook post. "But to present Ukrainian tanks at a Ukrainian train station, with Ukrainian train carriages in the background, as Russia’s preparations for war is a bit too much."

    MSM sources that have some shred of credibility include Al Jaz (imo the Best), Guardian, BBC, NYT, ABC. But if you want to get anything like a balanced picture, you've got to spread your net wider too- China daily or CGTN, RT or Sputnik, I think Press daily worth a look too.

    Sadly, our media complex is nothing to be proud of anymore.

    You never actually watched their report and did exactly what you were asked to do by your Russian heroes: Take a very tiny piece of a report out of context and use it to discredit anything else they report.

    You gullible fucking vladbot.

    By the way, CNN have not removed it, so we are still relying on your RT/Sputnik/TASS putin propaganda mouthpieces to determine the truth.....

    Oh, they have removed the offending picture alright. But well spotted 'arry- at the 5.40 mark in that video above, they are still misleadingly showing Ukrainian tanks being transported towards Russia by rail as proof of a Russian military build up. No retraction, or apology. No credibility left.

    CNN = Credibility Nil Null

    Said like a true propagandist, albeit an amateur one. Btw, CNN is no different than any of the other US based sources of information you've listed and a sign that you haven't a clue what you are talking about.

    Let's see now: A respected global news source that is not state controlled says one thing.

    Your Putin-controlled propaganda sources trot out a contrary party line in sync that contradicts it.

    And you're wondering why there is no retraction?

    And you keep posting this as if it is somehow evidence that Putin isn't massing troops on the border.

    You vladbots aren't very bright.

    So you are an anarchist ? You hold non state media in a higher regard than state media ? For what ?

    Some ppl believe that state media is more trustworthy than corporate/oligarch media and I think its an interesting point. But it just goes against the Anglo American worldview that we are all over exposed to.

    Who's more trusting ? The UK and Russian govt ? Or Rupert Merdoch and Roger Ails ? I'd say the UK and Russian govt.

    I think Al Jazeeras coverage is far and above the best news source currently.

    You and Wolf Blitzer are probably the only people who believe that.

    Formerly respected. Journalism, like most every profession, has a code of practise and ethics. The fact CNN made a rather amateurish mistake is one thing- but lets just say it can and does happen. But that is easily handled, and is standard practise. You publish a retraction, often (although not necessarily) accompanied with an apology. By conspicuously failing to do so, CNN has joined the ranks of trashy journalism and two bit propagandists. I would have thought they would have valued their reputation and journalistic integrity more than that.

    This is an opinion, and I hope that I am right, but I believe each of the following publications would have had the professional integrity and courtesy to have published a retraction-
    Al Jaz (imo the Best), Guardian, BBC, NYT, ABC.

    A couple of amateurish attempts at conflating the issue have not gone unnoticed- I just have not been bothered commenting. Until now. I never said, or insinuated, that Russia had not moved military forces closer to the Ukrainian border- indeed, I am well aware that they have. Just as has Ukraine moved forces closer to the Russian border- as comically illustrated by that footage CNN got so tragically wrong. Of course they both say "you started it". I'm not even bothered looking further into it.

    The issue I raised was quite simply CNN's blunder, and subsequent appalling lack of journalistic integrity and professional courtesy. It is not a small thing- it does matter. CNN has just demonstrated that it has absolutely no respect for you, it's viewer/ readership. It has treated you like idiots, easily duped.

    Repeating falsehoods doesn't make them true and don't talk to us about ethics when you have a clear penchant for propaganda. The very fact that CNN pointed out the error, and it was a minor one from which you're trying to extrapolate thinking that someone will buy this lame assertion, is proof that the only idiot is you.
