    Sharyl Attkisson compiles list of 101 notable media mistakes on Trump
    By Thomas LifsonAs the dominant media in the United States have degenerated into propaganda organs for the Left, a few honest reporters have distinguished themselves by sticking to the truth, even as it has cost them their high visibility posts. Sharyl Attkisson, a 3 decade veteran of MSM broadcasting who was spied on by the Obama administration (her computer was intruded upon) and is fighting back (she needs your support!), is holding her former MSM colleagues responsible for their excesses in attacking President Trump.

    Now, she is compiling a growing list of notable media mistakes in reporting false stories about President Trump. It’s the Fake News Follies. In the introduction, she turns the tables on them:
    We the media have “fact-checked” President Trump like we have fact-checked no other human being on the planet—and he’s certainly given us plenty to write about. That’s probably why it’s so easy to find lists enumerating and examining his mistakes, missteps and “lies.”

    But as self-appointed arbiters of truth, we’ve largely excused our own unprecedented string of fact-challenged reporting. The truth is, formerly well-respected, top news organizations are making repeat, unforced errors in numbers that were unheard of just a couple of years ago.

    Our repeat mistakes involve declaring that Trump’s claims are “lies” when they are matters of opinion, or when the truth between conflicting sources is unknowable; taking Trump’s statements and events out of context; reporting secondhand accounts against Trump without attribution as if they’re established fact; relying on untruthful, conflicted sources; and presenting reporter opinions in news stories—without labeling them as opinions.

    What’s worse, we defend ourselves by trying to convince the public that our mistakes are actually a virtue because we (sometimes) correct them. Or we blame Trump for why we’re getting so much wrong. It’s a little bit like a police officer taking someone to jail for DUI, then driving home drunk himself: he may be correct to arrest the suspect, but he should certainly know better than to commit the same violation.
    If you are a news junkie, going through her list of “mistakes” will be a trip down memory lane, recalling moments of outrage over unfair and often obviously false reporting. She lists them chronologically, providing a chronicle of TDS infecting and corrupting the media.

    Save this page for future reference, as it is growing almost daily.

    A sample from 3 of the the early days of the Trump presidency:
    13. Feb. 4, 2017:
    Josh Rogin of the Washington Post reported on “Inside the White House-Cabinet Battle Over Trump’s Immigration Order,” only to have the article updated repeatedly to note that one of the reported meetings had not actually occurred, that a conference call had not happened as described, and that actions attributed to Trump were actually taken by his chief of staff.
    14. Feb. 14, 2017:
    The New York Times’ Michael S. Schmidt, Mark Mazzetti and Matt Apuzzo reported about supposed contacts between Trump campaign staff and “senior Russian intelligence officials.” Comey later testified “In the main, [the article] was not true.”
    15. Feb. 22, 2017:
    ProPublica’s Raymond Bonner reported CIA official Gina Haspel—Trump’s later pick for CIA Director—was in charge of a secret CIA prison where Islamic extremist terrorist Abu Zubaydah was waterboarded 83 times in one month, and that she mocked the prisoner’s suffering. More than a year later, ProPublica retracted the claim, stating that “Neither of these assertions is correct…Haspel did not take charge of the base until after the interrogation of Zubaydah ended.”
    Brava to Ms. Attkisson, a fearless crusader for the truth.

    Well 777, trump may not be ousted, but, let's face it , he's done. The case for obstruction is pretty strong, and I don't think any reasonable person, would say that he did nothing wrong. So now what are we left with? It all goes back to what I've been saying from the start, "the man has NO sense of ethics". Guess we'll know more after the 2020 czar election. :cool:

    I have been thinking that over...….my guess is they really dont want to win the impeachment, all
    he would say is that it is fake news anyway...……..

    However imagine him in the well of the house of representatives getting cencured and with votes
    of both parties because they both want to get this over with.

    there would be no fake news, no adam shiff to rail against, only the result of what his mouth has
    created...…..

    Trump is a fighter. so hit him where it hurts and where there is no way to fight back...….take your punishment
    and move on.

    My bet is they wont find anything wrong with the new investigations. no dem is going to jail...so what is left.

    Trump cant learn so we either win with Trump being the poor excuse for a human being he is or we lose.

    this entire thing is a mess, Trump is terrible and the dems are worse.

    No, the Dems are not worse; they have advanced this nation more over the years than the Reps. Trump would be ok w/ me despite his politics if he had shown his imcome taxes and gave up ownership of his company, like other presidents have done. Sure, it's just a custom, but he set off a lot of red flags for me when he did that.

    He's only showing how he's trying to enrich and empower himself more than he thought he could just running his own company by guiding foreign intrests to his properties & using US military to contribute to his properties.

    The Ukraine mess breaks the camel's back, here, and I hope more Americans see thru this & get him out of office, one way or another. I'm not sure impeachment will do much to advance this, but I'm sure as hell hoping he'll be out in 2020.

    He's basically fucking up not only this nation, but the world with his misuse of American influence and power.

    Your kidding yourself...…..

    what they have given us is poverty, 22 trillion in debt, a complete
    sub set of America dependent upon government, 30 million illegal
    people that could care less about the country as a country.

    The divide you see here is a direct result of democratic ideals..period
    they talk about compromise.....the dem party has not compromised on
    anything in the past 25 years....nothing, and the reps movements
    to do so. have hastened our demise.

    abortion...no compromise
    taxes no compromise
    environment no compromise
    heath care no compromise ( not even a single vote)
    border no compromise
    The reason you have a border issue is simple, no democratic
    party ...ever will sign an immigration bill that limits anyones access
    to this country for any reason at any time.....ever...….

    You show me where any country in the world at any time ever lasted
    or provided what we have had over the past 200 years using the
    ideas of todays dem.……..none ever happened

    Socialism and communism are not reasonable solutions to anything, you give me the issue, any issue and you cant win on that issue...
