CNN Media Critic Blasted on Twitter By...CNN's Jake Tapper?!
The political world is still going bananas over the new Trump tell all. Facts and believability be damned (see Author Shadi Hamid Rips Press for Blood-Thirsty Reaction to ‘Fire and Fury’ and Tony Blair Calls Out Anti-Trump ‘Fire and Fury’ Book Over its Lies…). Take away Bannon going on the record, and this book's about as reliable as fold-out chairs at a feminist fat pride meeting. Even the author himself doesn't know if everything in his book is true. But it's Trump so who cares. Amirite?
Just ask CNN's "media critic," Brian Stelter.

Ah, so an elected official and his people play lose with the facts? That makes it ok for the media to play loose with the facts. The media, whose job is supposedly to get to the bottom of the truth. Trump lies, so they're going to lie too. Got it, Sparky.
"Fake news" isn't just Trump code word for "this is mean to Trump." The media has been so desperate for anything to take down the administration, the usual vetting goes out the window. If a story pops up about the President, no matter how ridiculous it is, the press runs with it. When you're as giddy as a tween girl at a Justin Bieber concert, facts and logic take a backseat.
Having many errors but "ringing true" is not a journalistic standard.
But here, don't take my word for it. I'll let Jake Tapper do the talking.

Yes, that's the same Jake Tapper. CNN's "media critic" is such an incomparable dunce, he got called out by another fake news pusher at CNN. How's that taste?
You would think a media that doesn't like being called "fake news," would have learned their lesson in 2017 and ceased. But here we are, seven days into the new year, with the lie machine still up and running. Yet, the press wonders why a lot of people don't come to their defense. Or why they have a lower approval rating than a President with the lowest approval rating EVAH!
If you guys don't want to be called fake news, maybe start sucking less.
