Did CNN Really Post Porn?

There has been a lot of talk in the news lately about “fake news” and how easy it is to spread around. One fake news story that went wild recently involved an unbelievable story that stated CNN shows XXX footage for about 30 minutes. While that would be a lot of peoples’ dreams, since the 24 hour news cycle can be kind of mind numbing, it was completely false. How does such a news story spread like wildfire?

Well, it all started on Twitter. Someone just tweeted that CNN was posting porn. It wasn’t any kind of verified account, just some random person saying that. This tweet got picked up by some major online news outlets, and thus became a real news story in a matter of hours. The stories were just based on the two tweets that the original person put out, and none of the online news sources reached out to CNN or RCN to see if the claims were true. While this story would be juicy if it were true, it’s really likely not, and no one knows who was behind the story.

The original Twitter user made their account private, stating that they were getting too much harassment after their tweet. It was likely a hoax or perhaps a timely stunt to show just how easy it is to get stuff into the media. The publishers of some sites are under a lot of pressure to meet certain metrics so they love click worthy headlines and don’t think twice before publishing, because everything you read on the internet is real, right? As much as we would all love to see porn on CNN, it hasn’t happened just yet. This experience just proves how even the media can easily be deceived into thinking that their wildest fantasies are coming true! Personally, I think the reason why this story gained so much traction is that everyone hoped it would be so. Porn on a news channel would be a fun thing to see.

This is one thing you will never have to worry about with ThePornDude because I personally review all of the sites on here myself. My reviews are honest because I actually don’t even make any money unless you find something you like. I am so committed to honesty that I actually don’t even include sites on here that aren’t good enough for me to recommend to people. I don’t want to waste people’s time with complete bull, unlike others out there who publish things without even a bit of research. I go so far as to do test sales and research the porn company’s business practices to determine if they seem ethical or not. You can feel safe and secure using the porn sites I love.
