Media responds to Trump’s ‘fake news’ charge — by pumping out fake news!
The Washington Times, 21st February 2017
President Trump, in his extraordinary press conference last week, called out the media for its brazenly biased reporting. Days later, the supposedly bias-free Associated Press (not at all unbiased) dropped this bombshell in a tweet: “BREAKING: The Trump administration considered a proposal to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants, including millions living nowhere near the Mexico border, according to a draft memo obtained by The Associated Press,” the AP said in its story. Boom. Huge. Except there was a problem. No, many problems, foremost among them — the story wasn’t remotely true.
