You're having trouble proving that Jim Accosta isn't a reporter or that CNN isn't a news service. Making silly accusations at me for asking you to back up your specious claim is juvenile. Eyeball and sphincter coordination is irrelevant. What CIA-planted stories has CNN reposted and what is Accosta's relation to that coverage?

The structure of the sentence is:

CNN /has planted/ stories

It is confusing for you because it’s a question.

@PUNKEY,
Where is CIA in your analysis?

You've avoied "CIA-planted" to make your analysis appear clear while "CIA-planted" is not avoidable.

@oristarA,
In this context it means that people in the Central Intelligence Agency supplied media outlets with particular news stories. These were "planted" stories, as opposed to stories written and published independently. In the same manner, I could describe this thread as "oristar A-created".

Interesting thread topic. How would one know if a story was planted by the CIA? Wouldn't they keep that a secret?

It was revealed after the fact as part of Sen. Church's investigation.

What investigation? And how can you be sure Sen. Church is telling the truth and the CIA is actually behind what he says they are?

Yes, orstar A-created is easier to understand than CIA-planted. The suffix "-planted" has a hint of conspiracy to me.

Thank you. I've awarded the ribbon to this reply of yours.
