NEWS FAIL: CNN Helps Raise $230K for ‘Mom’ Facing Eviction Before Confirming ‘She is Not the Mother’

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.10.21

From Fox News:

CNN recently promoted the story of a “mom” of three young children who was nervous about being evicted amid the federal eviction moratorium. The liberal network even pushed a GoFundMe to help her cover the rent – but it turns out she wasn’t the mother after all. 

CNN reporter Nick Watt caught up with Dasha Kelly last week for a story on the recent eviction moratorium lapse. He referred to the three children as “her little girls” and noted they could all end up on the street as CNN’s on-screen chyron said, “Mom braces for eviction.” Watt explained that Kelly lost her job because of the coronavirus pandemic and can no longer afford child care, and her “little girls” were shown during CNN’s segment. 

However, it turns out Kelly isn’t the mother of the three young children used throughout CNN’s reporting. 

“Update: After CNN aired a story about her potential eviction, Dasha Kelly clarified to CNN that she is not the mother of the three children featured in the story. CNN has verified she takes care of the children in her home for periods of time. She says she originally described herself to CNN as a mother because she considers herself to be like one to them,” a correction added to CNN’s online report said. 

The online version of the on-air interview now begins with a disclaimer, “After CNN aired a story about her potential eviction, Dasha Kelly clarified to CNN that she is not the mother of the three children featured in the story.”

ADD IT TO THE LIST: Bernie Says ‘Evictions Must Be Banned’ to Promote ‘Economic Justice’ in America

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.07.20

Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders doubled-down on his call for national rent control Tuesday morning; saying “evictions must be banned” in America to promote “economic justice” during the pandemic.

“Evictions must be banned for the entirety of this crisis. This is a matter of racial and economic justice that Congress cannot ignore,” posted Sanders on social media.

 

Sanders made similar comments last week when he called for a 10% cut to entire Pentagon budget.

“In the midst of a pandemic, the Senate is voting on a $740 billion Pentagon budget. I will be presenting an alternative: Cut the military by 10% to invest in health care, jobs, housing, and the environment. It’s time to transform our national priorities,”

“Why do we spend more on the military than the next 11 nations combined? I have a better idea: Cut Pentagon spending by 10% and invest it in the fight to end homelessness, hunger and poverty in the richest country on Earth,” said Sanders.

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.10.21

Far-Left Senator Bernie Sanders promoted the Democrats’ latest ‘CoVID Relief Package’ on CNN Tuesday night; saying the plan includes money for “child poverty, evictions, pensions, community centers” and more.

“What this legislation does is address a crisis that this country has ignored for too long. It will expand the child tax credit and lower the child poverty rate by as much as 50%,” said Sanders.

“This legislation provides help for eviction assistance. This legislation doubles-funding for community health centers,” he added.
