BREAKING: Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President @RealDonaldTrump with the Russia smear. New emails show how senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.
CNN 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.
