Why does the press need this information before the trial is over?

I’ll give you 3 guesses and the first two don’t count. Hint: it rhymes with “bolitically motivated violent intimidation”

trying to get a handle on CNN's latest fuck up. Would they exist if not for airport terminals and gyms?

I've been staying away from the news recently so you'll have to fill me in, but I've got assume it's either misinformation about Trump or MH370.

Seriously. Searching for "CNN screws up" is going to bring a lot of false positives with it.

I've been staying away from the news recently so you'll have to fill me in, but I've got assume it's either misinformation about Trump or MH370.

I assume he’s talking about Lanny Davis, who was an unnamed source for a story claiming that Cohen was prepared and able to testify that Trump knew in advance about the Trump Tower meeting. He gave that information (again, unnamed) and then almost immediately went on tv and refuted his own claims, under the guise of doubting the “unnamed source.”

However, I’m not sure how this is a CNN fuck up. Lanny is the one caught in a lie, and exactly which of his statements is a lie is unclear. The CNN story had other sources beyond just him, and he appears to have realized immediately after revealing Cohen’s knowledge about criminal activities that he had just opened up his client (who had already testified to Congress) to perjury charges. If anything I’d call it a Fox fuck up, since they either can’t interpret the facts as presented or are nakedly smearing the reporting in bad faith by distorting what happened.
