As Twitchy told you, last night, E. Jean Carroll told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that ““most people think of rape as being sexy.” That’s about as problematically juicy a soundbite as you can get when you’re dealing with allegations of sexual assault. And yet, for some odd reason we totally can’t understand, CNN didn’t include that in the interview video they posted:
WOW: CNN didn't post portion of the interview when E. Jean Carroll says she doesn't consider what happened between her & Trump to be rape or sexual assault, also didn't post the part where she said rape is "sexy"

Now why would they leave something like that out?
You mean CNN was being less than honest? pic.twitter.com/HXsmPapApZ

Did you expect CNN to actually post the wacky part of the interview? Cut and paste journalism…..This Is CNN!

Of course they didn't.

One thing’s for sure: CNN’s credibility isn’t faring any better than Carroll’s today.
This is gross. I found the video CNN posted too. I think it was about 7 minutes but they left this part off. I’m not crazy about a lot of things Trump does, but I think that when they leave important details out, it only helps him.

And in indulging Carroll’s bizarre behavior, they’re only demonstrating that their concern isn’t with her, but with the narrative she can feed into.
It's very clear she is mentally unwell. Someone needs to stage an intervention and media needs to use some care and stop exploiting those who are so obviously dealing with issues.

I don’t believe her but either way she needs some serious help – she sounds like a crazy person in these interviews. She should be in therapy or a clinic not in front of cameras.

This lady has very real mental issues, CNN will gladly use her to drive a message then CNN will only use the parts of the message they want people to hear in order to get their story across.

Poor woman. She is clearly very mixed up and deserves out pity and kindness.
CNN should be ashamed of themselves for exploiting her
