    Washington Post media critic Margaret Sullivan says anonymous sources provide a better foundation to a news story than official sources. Sullivan was speaking to CBC News Saturday about how the Washington Post used 30 anonymous sources to write its article this week on President Donald Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey. The story, which alleged sinister motives on behalf of Trump, was composed by four reporters and was pieced together from “the private accounts of more than 30 officials at the White House, the Justice Department, the FBI and on Capitol Hill, as well as Trump confidants and other...

    After the Washington Post claimed that Press Secretary Sean Spicer was “hiding in bushes” to avoid questions from reporters about FBI Director James Comey’s firing, the paper has once again had to admit that they published fake news. In an article titled “After Trump fired Comey, White House staff scrambled to explain why” by Jenna Johnson, she made the spectacular claim that Spicer had actually hid in bushes to avoid questions from the Washington elite media. “After Spicer spent several minutes hidden in the bushes near these sets, Janet Montesi, an executive assistant in the press office, emerged and told...

    The Washington Post threw some subtle shade at the Trump White House in issuing a correction on a story about Sean Spicer and his location among the bushes following the announcement of FBI Director James Comey’s termination. After an interview with Fox Business’s Lou Dobbs on Tuesday night, the White House press secretary “disappeared into the shadows, huddling with his staff behind a tall hedge” while news of Comey’s firing unfolded and reporters sought more information, WaPo’s Jenna Johnson reported on Wednesday. Later that day, an editor’s note was added to the bottom of Johnson’s story, clarifying that Spicer had...

    RUSH: CNN and the Washington Post with fake news. There’s a news story that Comey requested additional money for his investigation just days before he was fired. The Department of Justice has just denied it 100%. There was no request for additional money before he was fired. CNN and the Washington Post get this fake news trail going that Comey was getting close, man! He needed some more money. He needed some more money to nail Trump! And that’s when Trump moved in and said, “Screw you! You’re not getting the money. You’re not getting me.” The DOJ says it’s...

    The Polistick ^ | 05/02/2017 | Matthew K. Burke
    In another one of the neverending segments where Democrats masquerading as journalists continue to search for ways to rescue the failing Democrat Party, longtime Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus slipped up and admitted that she’s a Democrat Party hack. Appearing on MSNBC, in a discussion that centered around Hillary Clinton’s infamous “deplorables” comment and how the Democrats can stop their downward spiral, Marcus gave the party her top shelf advice: “Being able to speak to the anger and frustration with Washington, to the economic anxiety that helped to propel both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, is going to be really...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 04/25/17 | Dan Calabrese
    Trickery On first glance, this looks bad: According to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, only 37 percent of Americans want ObamaCare repealed and replaced, as opposed to 61 percent who prefer that we “keep and improve” it. How could this happen? How could a law that has never been popular, has never worked well and has resulted in soaring premiums and collapsing insurance markets suddenly be popular? Like I said, it appears that way on first glance, but if you think about the choices offered in the poll, you’ll notice something:

    The crackdown measures on illegal immigration Attorney General Jeff Sessions unveiled in Noagles, Arizona Tuesday continue to draw intense reactions spanning from abject horror to welcome relief. Professor and Washington Post contributor Daniel W. Drezner began the day by issuing a sincere apology for touching off a viral fake news scandal. Immediately after Tuesday’s announcement, Drezner tweeted that the Attorney General had described all “illegal immigrants” as “filth.” The tweet was quickly retweeted thousands of times and contributed to an outpouring of misdirected outrage at Mr. Sessions over his use of the word. In fact, as Drezner’s apology on the...

    Susan Rice may want to stop giving interviews at this point. While Rice's ascent in Democratic foreign policy circles is the stuff of legend, she has also demonstrated a completely unhelpful tendency to say the wrong thing to the media. And it's come back to bite her twice just this month. The most recent example was highlighted Monday by The Post's Fact Checker, Glenn Kessler. In an NPR interview three months before Syria's government allegedly used chemical weapons on its own people last week, Rice had hailed the Obama administration's success in removing such chemical weapons. “We were able to...

    For Americans, the first couple, or even the second couple, for that matter, offers a lens through which we work out our own complex feelings about the institution of marriage and the role of women. In their first hundred days, President Trump and Vice President Pence have given us the ultimate contrast: a couple who don’t live together and a couple who stay unusually — perhaps unnervingly — close.   The Trump and Pence marriages represent the jumble sale that is Republican values in 2017, from the thrice-married big-city philanderer with a habit of viewing women as ornaments to the...

    After the presidential election last November, New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet gave an interview to NPR in which he admitted that his journalists simply don’t understand religion.“We don’t get religion,” Baquet said. “We don’t get the role of religion in people’s lives.”Baquet was correct: Acela corridor political reporters don’t understand religion, especially Christianity. Though he was specifically speaking about New York Times reporters, Baquet’s comments clearly also apply to the Washington Post, which on Friday morning accused a Republican congressman from Texas of claiming that the Bible forbids the unemployed from having food to eat.The headline from the...

    The Washington Post quietly rewrote a story about a Congressman using the Bible to bash poor people Friday, after a writer at the Federalist published a systematic break down of the piece that exposed major holes and mistakes in the story. Caitlin Dewey’s initial write-up in the paper (which recently adopted the slogan “Democracy Dies In Darkness”) did not include a single quote from the Texas representative she basically accused of using the Bible to justify taking food from starving people. The story also incorrectly referred to “2 Thessalonians 3-10,” and wildly mischaracterized Rep. Jody Arrington’s statements on the verse....
  • So sorry, Alex Jones. Your ‘Pizzagate’ apology doesn’t change a thing.

    The Washington Post ^ | March 28, 2017 | Margaret Sullivan
    A heartfelt apology can be a beautiful step toward healing. Alex Jones’s “Pizzagate” apology doesn’t come close. For one thing, the motivation seems to spring from his wallet, not the depths of his heart. Its timing strongly suggests that he wanted to minimize legal consequences for spreading, on his Infowars website, the bizarre and dangerous lie that a child-sex-trafficking ring was being run out of a Washington pizza parlor, Comet Ping Pong. What’s more, his words — even if you believe them — don’t fix the damage.
  • Trump wants to roll back progress against climate change. He’s going to fail.

    Few of President Barack Obama’s achievements seem more imperiled from President Trump than progress in combating climate change. To avert catastrophic climate change, the broadly accepted goal among climate scientists is to stay below two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) of warming over preindustrial temperatures. By helping negotiate the 2015 climate agreement in Paris and setting up a regulatory framework for fossil fuel emissions domestically, Obama created conditions that are necessary, but insufficient, to get there. The plan was for his successor to go further by increasing the ambition of Obama’s climate rules, cracking down on methane leakage and completing...

    The Hill ^ | 03/24/17 09:14 AM EDT | BY MARK HENSCH
    The Washington Post is calling for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) to be investigated for publicly leaking sensitive information. Nunes has faced intense criticism for announcing Wednesday the U.S. intelligence community incidentally collected information on members of President Trump’s transition team, and briefing the White House on it before talking to members of the committee. “We’ve said before that it was doubtful than an investigation headed by Mr. Nunes into Russia’s interference in the [2016] election could be adequate or credible. The chairman’s contradictory and clownish grandstanding makes that a certainty,” the Post's editorial board wrote Friday. “His...

    Gosh, Senator Cleaver, your questions are so insightful and interesting that I wish this confirmation hearing could go on forever! Unless a nominee is a complete idiot, he (or she) will be incredibly polite during his confirmation hearings in the U.S. Senate. It is hardly the place to display a Fonzi (Happy Days) attitude. However, Dana Milbank in the March 21 Washington Post suggests that the politeness demonstrated by Neil Gorsuch during his confirmation hearing for Supreme Court justice could be insincere thus making him a judicial version of Eddie Haskell from Leave It to Beaver. If you are one of the...

    To underline how The Washington Post is a Democratic Party newspaper, the Sunday edition has a front-page puff piece on Sen. Al Franken. “Franken takes a judicious approach,” reads the newspaper headline. Online, the love is more palpable: “Al Franken may be the perfect senator for the Trump era — a deadly serious funnyman.”

    One of The Washington Post’s big disclosures on Sunday was a front-page story about President Donald Trump’s choice of a cemetery. It was the latest contribution from reporter David A. Fahrenthold, whose job it is to probe every aspect of the life of the new President, no matter how esoteric and trivial. On the other hand, when it comes to covering the paper’s owner, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, and his ties to the CIA and the National Security Agency (NSA), the paper is AWOL. Bezos is known for Amazon.com, the world’s largest online shopping retailer, and said at the time he...
