CNN’s Anderson Cooper is claiming that his Twitter account was hacked, and that on Wednesday morning at 6:55 am, he was not the one who tweeted that President Donald Trump was a “pathetic loser” in response to his tweet at 6:22 am, about Roy Moore.
When looking at the two tweets – note the times – Cooper’s response was 3 minutes after the presidents; he LIED, he was NOT hacked.
The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!

Cooper’s response, which has since been deleted. “Oh Really? You endorsed him you too! Pathetic loser.
just woke up to find out someone gained access to my twitter account. i have not sent a tweet in days or replied to any tweets. We are looking into how this happened.

As Breitbart reports, this is yet another catastrophic blow to CNN’s credibility, a news outlet that indentifies as objective.
In the last 10 days alone, the last-place network has been forced to correct two major pieces of fake news: The claim that Attorney General Jeff Sessions violated protocol by not disclosing his contacts in the capacity of a sitting senator with Russian official, and one of the biggest boondoggles of the year (which is saying a lot); the false claim Donald Trump Jr. had early access to WikiLeaks documents, which would prove collusion with the Russians, or something.
Overall, due to countless lies and trolling, CNN is now widely regarded as a left-wing disinformation outlet. Even those who do not care for Trump, feel CNN is unreliable.
Cooper’s inexcusable tweet is just more piece of proof that CNN has no legitimate editorial or ethical standards.
