According to a new list compiled by The Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard, the Trump administration has been hit with 33 fake news stories by the so-called “mainstream media,” known here as the “Democrat-media complex,” Newsbusters reported Friday.
Geoffrey Dickens noted:
In Friday’s edition of his “Washington Secrets” column Bedard reported “President Trump’s claim that he’s been the subject of false and ‘fake news’ stories has been mocked by an eye-rolling media, but a Secrets analysis of Trump coverage reveals that Team Trump have been hit with an average of one false, distorted or denied story a day. Starting on the eve of Inauguration Day, there have been at least 33 often widely reported false stories about the president and his team.”
“It never ceases to amaze me the lengths to which the mainstream media conjures up fake news,” White House spokesman Sean Spicer said.
According to Bedard, “…a majority — 23 — were false stories. Another four were denied, like a New York Times report about the president hanging out in a bathrobe in the early evenings watching TV. And six were distorted reports, like a Washington Post report on how Trump violated the “sacrosanct” CIA Memorial Wall in giving a speech there. So did President Obama.”
Here’s just a few, highlighted by Newsbusters:
■ Politico reported that a company overseen by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin had foreclosed on a 90-year-old woman for due to a 27-cent payment error. The Competitive Enterprise Institute determined that there was no foreclosure and a different company was involved.
■ CNN reported that Nancy Sinatra was “not happy” Trump’s first inaugural dance to her dad’s “My Way.” She reacted, “Why do you lie, CNN?”
■ A Time reporter tweeted that Trump removed the Martin Luther King Jr. bust from Oval office. The reporter soon corrected the tweet.
■ Several outlets reported that a firing bloodbath was taking place inside the top ranks of State. Most who left were Obama political hires who work at the pleasure of the president.
