Transcript from CSPAN:
VERY GOOD, THE LAST POLL THAT I SAW FROM A RELIABLE SOURCE IS THAT IN 1970, LET’S TALK ABOUT WALTER CRONKITE FOR A SECOND — THE UNITED STATES BELIEVED THAT THE MEDIA WAS GIVING THEM REAL FACTUAL INFORMATION. A NEW POLL JUST CAME OUT THAT SAID IT’S COMPLETELY THE OPPOSITE. 80% BELIEVED IN THE MEDIA IN 1970 AND NOW 20% DOES. SO 80% DOESN’T. WHEN I LOOK AT THAT, I LOOK AT THIS AS UNRELIABLE SOURCES. YOU GUYS ALWAYS TALK ABOUT HOW MANY TIMES TRUMP HAS LIED. I HAVE CALCULATED THAT WITH YOUR CHIRON’S — I DON’T KNOW IF THERE IS ANY JOURNALISTS LEFT AT CNN BUT I KNOW THAT IF I WERE TO ESTIMATE, ABOUT 300 DIFFERENT DISTORTIONS OR MISINFORMATION THAT WE GET OUT OF CNN AND YOU HAVE TO WATCH THEM IN THE AIRPORT WHICH IS HARSH. BUT IF YOU ADDED THAT UP TO 46 MONTHS, COMES OUT TO BE 300,000 PLUS DISTORTIONS OF TRUTH. MY THING IS, THIS IS HOW LOW YOU WILL GO IS THAT YOU WIN OUT AND MADE LIES AND YOU DEFAMED A CHILD AND THEN YOU HAD TO SETTLE OUT OF COURT TO PAY THIS CHILD FOR DISTORTING INFORMATION ABOUT THIS YOUNG INDIVIDUAL. IF ANYTHING THAT IS HAPPENING AT CNN, ANYBODY WHO BUYS YOUR BOOK, IT’S REALLY JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT IS DIVIDING OUR NATION. I DON’T BELIEVE IN DIVIDING OUR NATION. CNN IS REALLY THE ENEMY AND THAT’S MY OPINION, THANK YOU.
