Another WaPo fail regarding the President's rally
« on: December 09, 2017, 10:52:12 PM »
This fail was a little later.  I get worried when the MSM doesn't lie and put out fake news for over an hour.  I checked my internet, made sure I paid my cable bill, etc...   As it turns out, I just missed it, that's all.

The reporter lied (on his personal Twitter account) about the size of the President's rally.  He posted pics before the President arrived showing a near-empty arena.  The video in the post shows a video of the President speaking, and the camera pans around revealing a completely packed house.

The reporter, David Weigel, had the decency to retract and correct his lie.  If we can get them to at least correct their lies more often, then that's a big win for journalism.  Thank you Mr. Weigel!  We all look forward to the next lie.

"He posted pics before the President arrived showing a near-empty arena."

Just an honest mistake, anyone could have made it, right?

Oh no, it couldn't in any way have been construed as a dig at the president ... that would've been a stretch, no way.


And they wonder why support from the the public at large over President Donald Trump is solidifying, and the MSM is viewed as BIASED?

How sad is it when you have to weed through Twitchy replies of people on the scene to get the truth?
It's as if the media posts the lies on purpose and dares anyone to prove them wrong.
