The Washington Post blasted CNN for its track record on the infamous anti-Trump dossier following last month's release of the Justice Department watchdog's report on the foundation of the Russia investigation, demanding the network "come clean" on its faulty reporting.
In his latest of an ongoing series tackling the media's handling of the dossier, Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple took aim at the anti-Trump network on Monday for continuing to "stand by" its past reporting on the salacious document that was used in the highly controversial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) application process to wiretap former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
Wemple singled out CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota, who claimed in December 2017 that the intel community "has corroborated all the details" of the dossier compiled by British ex-spy Christopher Steele, while others on the network insisted that "parts" or "much" of it were verified.

The Ricky Gervais effect?
Didn’t the Washington Post collude with the government to plant news items to further investigation requests?
Pot, kettle, etc.
Now you nailed it.
Plus, maybe everyone’s afraid of catching some heat and the blame game is beginning
i could be very wrong :)
Yes, with Comey’s friend who gave the Post his notes from his meeting with Trump.
CNN is ATT
Telecom must not also have ownership of the news.
Yep, which makes WAPO lambasting CNN an utter irony.
Is the Fake Media starting to crack?
Colluded or duped?
If an FBI agent comes to a reporter and says, I have this report on Trump you might want to look at what is a reporter to do?
Does the reporter ask Has it been verified?
If you, as a reporter, want to get leaked to again by this agent you probably dont ask that question.
And given that this is the WAPO this reporter is probably ready to believe everything in the dossier.
I think it was easy to get the WAPO to take the dossier at face value. I dont think it was necessary for the reporter to be part of a conspiracy to get the reporter to do what the FBI agent wanted him to do.
After losing the Jedi deal, is Bezos finally trying to do something about his fake-news organization ?
Now this is a funny fight....
At the Times wasn’t the reporter having sex with multiple members of the US government for “scoops”?
Since the reporter never screamed holy hell about being used (s)he was a willing yellow journalist.
WaPo the first rat off the sinking ship?
WP Pot calls CNN Kettle Black...............
Liberal media is like seeing feral dogs at feeding time.
