Apparently, the newsroom at The Washington Post was ablaze as its hit piece on President Trump was breaking readership records.
According to WaPo’s resident “Fact Checker,” Glenn Kessler, reporters around the room exploded in celebration:
“To the Washington Post, the New York Times and other left-wing outlets, journalism is blood sport,” Kyle Olson of The American Mirror stated. “It’s not about a mission to deliver facts, but to fulfill an agenda.”
As TruthRevolt’s Tiffany Gabbay reported on Tuesday, “The mainstream media and leftists around the nation have latched on to the Washington Post's unconfirmed report citing an anonymous source who claimed President Trump leaked classified information during a recent meeting with Russian officials.”
Joel B. Pollak at Breitbart noted how WaPo cites “former U.S. officials” as if that is rock-solid evidence against the Trump administration which categorically denies any wrongdoing. Also, it’s no coincidence that former FBI director James Comey was mentioned early in the story, even though he has nothing to do with it.
“The Post mentions him only to shoehorn one controversy into another, and to create the impression for gullible liberals that this is Trump’s quid-pro-quo in exchange for Russia’s election help in 2016,” Pollak added:
Trump violated no laws whatsoever, and it is not clear that any information he may have shared was in fact as sensitive as the Washington Post‘s anonymous sources claim.
The question remains who is leaking information to damage Trump. We already know why the Post publishes it.
The last time The Washington Post newsroom was this giddy was in 2009, when President-elect Barack Obama visited them. According to a Politico story from that time:
Around 100 people--Post reporters perhaps?--awaited POTUS's arrival, cheering and bobbing their coffee cups…
"Staff writers, photographers, editors and employees from other departments lined the hallway after word spread that the President-elect would be walking through the newsroom." Now Kurtz: "There hasn't been this much excitement in The Washington Post newsroom since Brad Pitt dropped by."
And yet, we're supposed to believe there is no mainstream media bias. Right.
