CNN Lies About Russia Closing Anglo-American School In Moscow

Catching CNN in a lie is too easy.  It’s like shooting fish in a barrel.
CNN, one of the media outfits that regularly complains about “fake news,” ran a fake news story of its own when it claimed that Russia was closing an Anglo-American school in Moscow as retaliation for President Obama’s sanctions.

“Russian authorities ordered the closure of the Anglo-American School of Moscow, a US official briefed on the matter said. The order from the Russian government closes the school, which serves children of US, British and Canadian embassy personnel, to US and foreign nationals,” reported CNN.

However, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova responded swiftly by denying that the school had been closed.

Grand-Daddy of Fake News: Walter Duranty, The New York Times, and Stalin

In the 1930’s Walter Duranty of The New York Times wrote glowingly about Russia and Stalin, completely coving up the starvation and mass murder. Duranty, the New York Times correspondent to the Soviet Union in the 1930s, was actually awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1932 for his series of reports that essentially covered up Stalin’s artificial, genocidal famine visited upon the people of the Ukraine. Some of what was published:

“There is no famine or actual starvation nor is there likely to be.”
–New York Times, Nov. 15, 1931, page 1

“Any report of a famine in Russia is today an exaggeration or malignant propaganda.”
–New York Times, August 23, 1933

Decades later, The Times finally owned up to their writer’s falsehoods.
