CNN was ripped on Friday after breathlessly airing a fake report that claimed that the Biden administration discovered that Trump had no COVID vaccine plan when they came into power.
MJ Lee , a low rung CNN reporter, hailed her story as a “great SCOOP” on “how bad this situation is with vaccine distribution.” The story quoted anonymous people who claim to know Biden’s virus policy plans as saying there was “nothing for us to rework” and there was no plan at all: “just further affirmation of complete incompetence.”
"There is nothing for us to rework. We are going to have to build everything from scratch." –>
Sources told CNN there simply was no vaccine distribution plan under Trump, leaving Biden and his team having to essentially start from "square one." https://t.co/u2hwMVMt10

It wasn’t long, though, before even other leftist “reporters” had to step up and slap down CNN’s lies.
One of those leftists was Politico editor Sam Stein who felt he had to dispel CNN’s lies because he had already written stories about the detailed plans the Trump administration had for COVID vaccine distribution. And if Stein were to remain quiet, then that would have made all his past reporting “lies.”
“Biden folks are spinning here or trying to lower the bar strategically,” Stein tweeted. “There was, indeed, a plan from Trump. I listened in on govs calls on vaccine distribution. The plan had obvious shortcomings. but to say there’s nothing to rework is not true.”

The Washington Post’s Dan Diamond also pointed out that the Biden underlings’ lies seem tailor made to lower expectations when Biden fails on VOVID, too.

The above is only two of the many left-wing reporters who tore the guts out of CNN’s fake news.
Even the left’s favorite coronavirus kingpin, Dr. Anthony Fauci, slammed CNN:
"We certainly are not starting from scratch" says Fauci about Joe Biden vaccine plan.

even some of CNN’s hosts slapped down their own network’s fake news report.
Fraido Cuomo scoffed that Biden’s claim that they were “starting from scratch” was a pack of lies.
“Another thing that I don’t buy comes out of our reporting … that people in the administration say they’re starting from scratch with the vaccine. No, they’re not!” Fraido exclaimed. “You have an infrastructure out there that you’re well aware of that has to be improved. But they shouldn’t get any benefit of a low bar here either. … Are they gonna scrap it or are they going to build on it, make it better?”

CNN’s third-string “reporter”who broke this fake news was so desperate to justify publishing her lies that she called Dr. Fauci a “Trump holdover” to try and tear him down.
Two days ago, Fauci was the left’s hero… now this MJ Lee hack wants him to be discounted as a “Trump holdover” to justify her false reporting.
