REPORT: White House Lied to Journalists About Trump Speech in ‘Misdirection Play’

Image result for trump v the mediaCNN reported Wednesday on a senior administration official admitting that the White House intentionally misled reporters ahead of President Donald Trump‘s congressional address in order to get generate positive press coverage as part of a “misdirection play.”

Multiple reports Tuesday indicated that Trump would embrace a more moderate tone on immigration and would announce that he was willing to negotiate granting millions of illegal immigrants legal status. Most of those reports, cited to a “senior administration official,” came immediately after anchors lunched with Trump. Some of those outlets then just attributed the claim to the president himself.

But when it was time for Trump to actually give the speech, he said nothing of the sort. CNN’s Sara Murray complained the next day about “the bait and switch that the president pulled when it came to immigration yesterday. He had this meeting with the anchors, he talked about a path to legal status.”

“Basically they fed [them] things that they thought these anchors would like, that they thought would give them positive press coverage for the next few hours. A senior administration official admitted that it was a misdirection play,” she reported.

Misleading the LYING FAKE NEWS MEDIA?  Oh no, how could anyone do such a thing?  BOO HOO!

They haven't recognized or printed/spoken/displayed the truth to readers/listeners/viewers for so long, they can no longer recognize it!

They have no concept of the "Principles of Journalism", neither do the myriad schools of journalism!

Recognizing they have been widely discovered for who and what they are, the NYT is now attempting "marketing tactics" to reverse our understanding, after years of observable lying by them and their fellow FAKE NEWS MEDIA.  Surely, you have seen the effort to suggest the NYT is now going to pursue the "TRUTH".  What a concept, but, without a wholesale replacement of the ownership, management, editors, reporters, contributors the old will survive with a coat of whitewash (maybe not even that, just the banner "TRUTH"!

To their credit, inadvertently, they have admitted, they long ago abolished "TRUTH" from their fish wrapper paper!

That is the only way you can win against these liars and slanderers.

Fake news again and still.

Hey, the Press and Pundit Media wanted to play games, when they do it, we're supposed to accept it, but when we decide to do it.....  Well, Ladies and Gentlemen the Game is "Chess" not "Checkers".

Mr President has punked the press once again LOLOLOLOL

The President and his administration do not nor should they give anything to the press prior.  When they watch it like all of us, than they can make there conclusions.  

I love it.  Shoe on other foot.  How does that feel.

I thought fox was on his side?

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
