Well, journalists had another stellar week of buying petards from Acme, setting the explosives off, and hoisting themselves high above the ground.
The first ten days of December have seen:
- ABC News’s Brian Ross lie about General Flynn’s plea bargain.
- Reuters and Bloomberg News report on an imaginary subpoena of Trump’s records at a German bank.
- CNN lie about Donald Trump Junior being tipped off about a WikiLeaks.
- David Weigel of the Washington Post lie about the size of the crowd at a Trump rally.
Liars all of them.
Credibility is all the press has. The power of the press is people believe it. If people stop believing the press, the power is gone. And the power is gone. Most of the public no longer looks to the press for guidance.
Not one single newspaper in West Virginia endorsed Donald Trump.
He carried every county.
He won because he fights back. He knew something all the other Republicans don’t know: the news media is a paper tiger. He is forcing the press to own up to its lies.
