“What we are asking CNN is where is their evidence? The army has been consistent. CNN violates the basic principles of journalism: fairness and balance.
‘They made the story without contacting the Federal Government on their own part. They were based on second and third party narratives.
“They (CNN) were caught spreading fake news and are trying to escape.
“We are accusing them (CNN) of basing their stories on videos obtained from social networks. CNN has been inconsistent. He also modified the video he got.
“We are confident in our position.”
