Press Secretary Sean Spicer just showed the media that they won’t to be able to get away with spreading fake news about Trump on his watch. The media are terrified. “Before I get to the news of the day, I think I’d like to discuss a little bit of the coverage of the last 24 hours,” said Spicer in a press conference.
Spicer didn’t stop there: “One was a particular egregious example in which a reporter falsely tweeted out that the bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. had been removed from the Oval Office. After it was pointed out that this was just plain wrong, the reporter casually reported and tweeted out and tried to claim that a Secret Service agent must have just been standing in front of it. This was irresponsible and reckless.”
“Secondly, photographs of the inaugural proceedings were intentionally framed in a way, in one particular tweet, to minimize the enormous support that had gathered on the National Mall,” explain Spicer. “Inaccurate numbers involving crowd size were also tweeted. No one had numbers.”
“These attempts to lessen the enthusiasm of the inauguration are shameful and wrong,” said Spicer. Many in the media are upset that they are being scolded so much. Well if they want to stop being scolded at, they should start doing their jobs properly.
