Well, I regret to inform you that CNN is once again spreading fake news.
This time though, it’s costing their viewers a lot of money.
CNN promoted a woman on their network who was being evicted due to the moratorium expires.
Thy told us she was a single mother of three girls who started a Gofundme in order to pay her rent.
Here’s the clip:
“You know it’s happening when we start talking about it… it’s bringing all of my emotions.”
Dasha Kelly is a single mom facing eviction over unpaid rent.

But there’s a problem with this story.
Firstly, the woman is not single.
Secondly, those are not her children.
Even so, later, Radical Rep Cori Bush also tried to get in on the action by promoting a second CNN interview:
When I say your Congresswoman loves you, this is what I mean.
Kelly, I may not be your representative, but I love you and I will not stop working to make sure you and every person in our country has what they need to thrive. pic.twitter.com/qoDjn0xGnk

Word about the fraud started spreading, and finally, CNN had to get off their duffs and actually investigate the story they already aired and promoted…TWICE.
But it was too late.
The Gofundme had already raised over 230K, thanks to the fake CNN sob story.
Fox News reported that 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.
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.”
Kelly was portrayed as a “single mom” at the outset, however.
As of now, GoFundMe has frozen the account while they investigate the matter.
Another sham propaganda story brought to us by the snake oil salesmen over at CNN.
